While we waited for our table we sat at the bar and ordered drinks. The bartender explained getting hot tea will have to be ordered at the table since he has to go to the other 'bar/cafe' to get it. other than my hot tea Olive and Ivy is peachy. will go again.

Best meal I’ve had in a long time! We started out with the hummus plate, then for entrees we order the filet and sea bass...excellent. The waiter was great as well...attentive and friendly. Desert was fantastic...lemon cake.

The hostess DID NOT honor our open table reservation. We originally walked in at 845 and were told no table were available and that there was a 1.5 hour wait, we still put our name on the list. I then went on open table and found a reservation at 9pm and booked it. I then went to hostess desk and 9p and was told our table still will not be ready for 45 minutes. Very disappointed with The restaurant that they did not honor my 9p open table reservation. Worst of all, we were able to get our last minute and it was to celebrate a special anniversary

We loved the location. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We loved the Bruschetta and our salads. My husband had the pork tenderloins wrapped in bacon and they were very delicious. I had the sea bass. I found it to be just so-so. But the vegetables on the plate were delicious. Over all we were well pleased and would return.

The patio is the only area we will be seated in because the interior is obnoxiously loud. We go to a restaurant for the food first, but then conversation. I know the new trend is extreme loudness, but you outdo yourself.
Other than the noise I love olive and Ivy.

Worst beef ribeye I have had. The second one was only marginally better than the tough first one. Are you using Choice?

Food was very good but it needed more flavor. I had the filet. It was very good but it lacked something to put it over the top. The potatoes that came with it needed a little more seasoning.

We dined here Memorial Day and they were out of the Lasagne Bolognese which was a disappointment. Our meals were just okay and we had to ask our waiter to remove the 2 desserts since we hadn’t had any from our bill.

We’ve been there many times! We love it there. Had dinner last night, food was great as usual. Our entrees took longer than expected, which didn’t bother us at all. Our server Jay was apologetic and very nice. Even the manager came to our table to apologize and took care of our drinks.
Customer service is top notch. We will be back!

Lunch outside was a real treat. The beet salad was outstanding and the Mediterranean salad with chicken was very good. The chicken panini was tasty but could have used more chicken between the bread slices. The avocado and the prosciutto bruschettas were good. The ice cream and the sorbets we had for dessert were all very good. Service was excellent and the food came out of the kitchen at a good pace.
