Fig & Olive Meatpacking

Fig & Olive is a well known mediterranean restaurant with multiple locations in the city as well as a location in West Hollywood. I have been to the Upper East Side location here in the city- you can read more about that here.

More recently, I tried the Meatpacking location. Featured in scenes from Million Dollar Listing New York, the space is definitely great. The Meatpacking location is much more spacious when compared to the cramped UES townhouse setting. However, I am disappointed to say that the experience is nothing to speak highly of as with the other location. 

While the food, I must admit, is good, the service was absolutely horrible. I enjoyed a chicken dish and my friend had a great mushroom risotto. We both got a strawberry dessert, which I of course had to feature to the right. 

The service: not once did our waiter check in with us during our meal. We waited over half an hour for our dessert. I had to resort to flagging down other waiters and busmen to check on the status. After finally receiving the dessert, it was probably another 20 minutes until we received the check and it was taken back for processing. Needless to say, nothing like this should ever happen at an upscale restaurant such as this.

  1. I love a good "risk risk". You. Go! Attaboy! Although that dessert looks delish.

  2. Ugh, I hate bad service at good restaurants! Looks delicious, though!

  3. Good to know! If you've tried two locations and both were let down then I think I won't even bother with the WEHO location. Too bad because I was curious. Thanks for the review!
