Fig & Olive has come to Houston! They are located inside the Galleria (near Saks Fifth Avenue) in an open and beautiful space. As soon as you walk in, you are greeted by a gorgeous bar to your left.
Lots of natural light in this lovely restaurant.
The weather in Houston was amazing last week with little humidity and temperatures in the low 70s. I opted to dine al fresco on their spacious terrace.
5pm on a Wednesday evening.
We started with a couple of their signature cocktails. Since I don’t drink alcohol, they made them into mocktails for me. My favorite was the Fig & Olive. It tasted exactly how it is described on the menu: refreshing and bright.
Appetizers. We ordered one of each Crostini and a couple other starters. Of the 9 Crostini, my favorite was the Prosciutto.
Mains. Everything on the menu sounded so good, I didn’t know what to order. Our server, Thomas, steered us in the right direction with the appetizers so we also went with his suggestions for our entrees. They did not disappoint.
Dessert. One of everything, please! but we were good and only ordered four 🙂
Overall, it was a fantastic meal at Fig & Olive. The service was wonderful (thank you, Thomas, for serving us on your birthday!). Even with the fancy setting, the ambiance was relaxing and welcoming. Everyone I encountered at the restaurant was friendly and made my dining experience incredible. I’d definitely come back with my husband for date night or have a girls night out (or brunch) on the terrace.
Thank you, Fig & Olive! I’m so glad you’ve made it to Houston!
