Fig & Olive
Mediterranean · Gold Coast · $$$
The Zagat Review
"Chic" and "airy" , this "stunning" Gold Coast outpost draws an equally "beautiful crowd" for "nuanced" Mediterranean fare "prepared with a light touch" and "fantastic" cocktails from an "always buzzing" bar; if some cite "inconsistent" service and "pricey" bills, that just comes with the "sceney" territory.

The venue was great, drinks we're spectacular, food was good. But didn't have a great service experience. Had drinks at the bar waiting for our table, sat down around 7:40pm. App at roughly, 8pm, entree at 9:30pm followed by a quick desert. The manager came over and apologized for the long wait on the food. I've worked in a restaurant, I know nothing goes perfectly. But when you go to a place like this you assume there will be some kind of compensation to make sure your experience was great. Another drink would have been fine. I'm just severely disappointed from my experience last night. I didn't want to cause any trouble bc my date was with me but this lack of service should not have occurred. This is possibly a rare occurrence and most customers lavish at their experience with Fig and olive.

Very Bad experience,we were there for dinner Feb 14, one of the first to arrive there was only one couple before us.Server was very unprepared for the prefix Manu,not much help,we ordered the selection of appetizer and wanted to wait to order dinner,he insisted that we order now and he will manage the time.We had not ordered the drink yet so we said let's have drink before we start the food,he rushed to the kitchen,came back an said," you food is ready" so we said fine, the wine pairing came half way through the appetizer,before we can finish the wine and appetizer the main course arrived,same thing the wine did not arrive till later, the instructions were given to space out the two courses. Desert came in after some time so they finished us off in 45 minutes,by this time the restaurant was busy and took them 45 minutes get the bill an 15 more minutes to process. All this and the food was at best mediocre and disappointing, talk to GM and he was just sorry no explanation. This was one of the worst experience of my lifetime and I have traveled all over the world and have tried many restaurants. Ambiance was great,very crowded place but food and service terrible.

Excellent food , family style starters to share. We went as a big group so almost ordered the entire menu! You will hardly go was so good. It's really busy, esp on weekends so be prepared for waiting!
