I think these people do not have a clue of what good food is - its not even what good Mediterranean food is. I ordered one of their pasta dishes and it was totally totally bland, the steaks were even worse, its was tough and no seasoning at all. I mean Ive had steaks that had salt and pepper on it and it tasted great because the meat quality was great, but here at this big rip-off place, they used poor quality meat so no flavor, and then overcooked it, and when you ask for seasoning to try and save it they go arrogant and claim that their steaks need no further seasoning!!! Yeah sure if I were being served with Wagyu or Angus but the steaks here were clearly of poor quality. All I can say is skip this place, go somewhere else, do not waste your money here. Its really a pity because the place looked great, the mellow lights gave that warm romantic ambiance, the furnishing were classy, in short the setting was right but they missed big time on the main thing - its all about the FOOD.

Whoever not eaten at “Fig & Olive” at Vivo City, I would advise you not to try out there. Their service really pissed me off. It was our first visit, me and my husband ordered a set – beef sirloin that comes with a drink and a scoop of ice cream ($19.90) and an a-la-carte lamb with olive ($26+). Rather quick, they served the ‘lamb’, it did not look like lamb though, that piece of meat without bone was covered up with thick sauce. We verified with the waiter, that nerdy guy went to the kitchen and came back confirming that it was LAMB! FINE! HE HAD JUST INSULTED US! To proof him wrong, we sliced the meat, it was CHICKEN!!!! WHITE MEAT!!!! The mistake was intolerable for people working in a restaurant to actually call lamb a chicken! We called out for the manager immediately and they brought it back to the kitchen without arguing, thank God! They then served the steak. From the look of it, it’s almost well done. In case we got insulted again, we cut up the meat first then told them we actually ordered for medium rare. That nerd reconfirmed with us….”Did you order medium well or medium rare?” Blood boiling…for one to be successful in the service industry, not only that he has to know the products well, it is equally important that he possess the right attitude. Needless to say, he failed completely. Despite the insults and the sub-standard service, we did not walk off. We waited and finished the food. The steak was full of tendon and the olive rice was hard and lumpy. I would rate the food below average given the price. Not forgetting the ice cream that comes with the set, we asked for it as well as the bill. As expected, the bill came first then the ice cream, no one noticed that our table was not cleared. They were not bothered….there came the bill, EFFICIENT! We only paid for the food and the 7% GST. They just don’t deserve to be paid the 10% service charge. Sadly, they are such a FAILURE IN SINGAPORE SERVICE INDUSTRY!!!

The menu claims the restaurant to have mediterranean cuisine but the options are not so and neither is the food served. We took lunch at their restaruant at Jurong Point and were not very happy with the service or the food. The restaurant had included pasta in the menu and what we ordered was below par. The orange juice served was not fresh and too sweet and when I asked the waiter about it, was told that it was made from concentrate. The sandwiches we ordered were average too apart from being overpriced. Service was in keeping wth the overall atmosphere at the restaurant with the waiters having to be asked even for sauces, after sandwiches were served. This is a restaurant that servces over priced food that is not great and served without friendliness. Avoid visiting the place.
