Fig and Olive is where the 1% like to hang out. Car and people watching can be fun and the food is good. Drinks and bar/dinning area is very nice with comfortable leather chairs and cushions everywhere. Service is good as is the vibe as long as you don’t mind the prices.

Had a wonderful adult family dinner in this amazing location, the ambiance is incredible. The staff are extremely attentive and made some great recommendations. The apps were outstanding, we shared a few of the crostini which were so delicious, as well as the harvest vegetables. We had a great waitress who made very good recommendations on these. We could have eaten those all night. The main courses, however, were a miss. The Balsamic short ribs were dry and the crispy polenta wasn't very crispy. 3 of the women at the table ordered salads, 2 without walnuts, all of them had walnuts in them when delivered. My brother-in-law ordered the Paella Noir, and it was just ok. We were treated to some tasters from the dessert menu, and they were all absolutely amazing. Chocolate Obsession, Pot De Creme, Olive Oil Cake were all incredibly delicious. I would go and just do crostini and desserts next time.

I'm put off by a restaurant that offers only valet parking. That aside, the atmosphere, service, and cuisine is definitely a cut above. An upper crust place for sure. Interesting selection of olive oils.

Fig and Olive is one of the top Mediterranean Fine Dining Restaurants with a very relaxed ambience. The decor is sophisticated and suave. They have an excellent collection of Wine ( French,Italian, Spanish and CA Wine ). The food is delicious and was presented beautifully. We loved the Octopus starter, Paella Noir and the Salmon. The service was very friendly and warm. Will surely go here again!!!

I had a really lovely lunch with my soon to be daughter in law. All our food was really good and the service was very friendly and thorough. Very nice experience all the way around.
