Olive & Ivy Restaurant & Marketplace
Olive and Ivy makes the BEST Espresso Martini. The food is alright. We really go there for ambiance and the drinks. It is great to be there with friends.
We were a party of seven with two birthdays with a 10 o’clock reservation this morning. We had lots of questions and plenty of special requests.
I did not catch the name of our server unfortunately but he was stellar! Knowledgeable, helpful, he enhanced an already wonderful experience. Thank you!
Very disappointed that we had a brunch menu and not the regular one
Visiting from out of town, and last time we were here it was outstanding. Brunch menu very poor and meal was not nearly as good.
it was several years since i have been back to Olive & Ivy and the wait was too long as this place is incredible. Great Food. Great Vibe. Great Atmosphere and will definitely be back much sooner than later.
tables could be a bit farther apart for "conversations"
Table was in the middle of the floor, would have preferred window. Also waitress seemed annoyed by our length of meal and left shift.
Loved the sea bass, salmon salad and delicious mushroom pasta ;))
Quite noisy plus part of our order was not delivered and it took a very long time , like another five or more minutes to get the cinnamon bun delivered.
The food was good but eggs been had cold ham and eggs were underdone
Nice location by the water, near old town Scottdale, great salad
Outside was wonderful and conducive to conversation
Food and service were both excellent. Only concern was that the outdoor seating is under a bunch of trees full of birds. Thankfully no droppings on our table but I kept looking into my drink to make sure.
Wasn’t that fond of the menu- lasagna was deconstructed but was more like a pasta with meat sauce.
It’s been awhile since I’ve been to this place for happy hour but I was very disappointed. The food was subpar and nothing to return for. The sangria was ok but tasted watered down. I love the ambiance and feel of the room but I will probably not be back. The service was great! The servers are nice. The hostess was rude and complained the whole time I waited to be sat. She’s brunette with too much makeup. Whoever reads this will know Exactly who I mean ;)
Love this place! The food is great! The atmosphere is fun! We definitely recommend This restaurant ! We got there almost every weekend :)
Awesome meal from cocktails to dessert.
Great waiter however hostess staff was rude and unwelcoming.
Four of us had lunch on a Saturday. It was busy and after a short wait were seated. The service was very good and the restaurateur is a fun place to be in. One had the tuna sandwich which was good but nothing extraordinary. The hummus plate was spicier than expected but good. The turkey grinder was very good and the fries that came with it were nice and crispy. The flatbread had sausage and egg and though it looked huge, it was easily devoured. Having gelato on the way out was a special treat. This is a go to place and would definitely recommend it.
This was my wife and I’s second time eating here and the food was wonderful both times.
Primary reason I’m taking the time to review though, was our server Jill. I bartended and served for about 7 years and can say that I would refer to her as one of the maybe 2-3 people I’ve come across that I’d call professional servers. She was busy and yet still perfectly attentive and really quick. I have serious allergies and felt confident they had been addressed - which is a big deal to me as I’ve had numerous issues while dining out elsewhere. Regardless, I can honestly say this was the best service I’ve ever received. So friendly and kind, perfect level of interaction, and flawlessly executed despite many modifications.
Thank you Jill for making our date night such a wonderful experience.
Great place for lunch. Food was interesting and different. Seemed the drinks were under par. A little light on the alcohol. Service was great!
Food was disappointing. We couldn't hear one another over the loud noise. Need to add sound absorbing features.
Hi Hyho, Thank you for writing this review. It saddens us to read that your experience was sub par. I would love to discuss more about your experience and see when we could invite you back in to give us another shot. Again, thank you for the review and I look forward to hearing from you. To contact me: 480-751-2200 and ask for Shelbi
Great in every way!
Fantastic food and service. The sweet potato filled pasta with mushrooms was unbelievable.
Jesse, our server, was the best!!! Great service, great suggestions.
Excellent Service and food! Our waitress was enthusiastic and loved her job. It showed in the way she took care of us. Everyone loved their food.
Great restaurant in downtown Scottsdale! The scallop entree was wonderful. It’s hard to find a chef who can cook scallops exactly how they are supposed to be. We will be back.
Hello, Thank you for the review! We are looking forward to having you in again. See you soon :)
The menu is not really classic medeteranian, but is more American/Italian/Medeteranian fusion. Lots of flat bread and bruschetta. Overall the food was good and the service was great. The scallops were the hit. Bruschetta was second. Our other dishes were good but just needed something more to take them up a level.
We sat outside in their lovely patio. The misters worked perfectly so we didn’t even feel the 100 degrees it was!
All was good (as usual) but somehow my request for Booth Seating did not make it to my reservation. Unfortunately, the initial spot we were placed, was tiny and "in-foot-traffic" area (meaning a lot of elbow bumping for my husband, which he intensely dislikes). I mentioned my request for Booth seating and they said it didn't make it to my reservation; it took a while but we were finally seated at a more accommodating table which worked, but the unfortunate "first impression" left us a bit put off. Still, we had a good time, although I think the tables are a bit noisier than the booth seating. Will follow up next time to be sure the booth seating request is placed.
Always a flavorful menu!
Loved our service and food. The only issue was that my husband got pooped on twice by a bird outside. So just a heads up, if you sit outside try not to sit under the trees...
Jenna, Thank you for the 5 star! We apologize for the birds- they are the difficult part about having such beautiful trees on our patio. Looking forward to having you in again, feel free to ask for me next time you are in and we can make sure to get you in a different spot ;) Shelbi
Great food made from scratch. Highly recommend the pasta, scallops and meat dishes. Lots of variety.
We were seated after the lunch rush at 1 pm. and had a delightfully meal. Service was very good as was the food. We had a very enjoyable experience.
Had a great meal. The scallops were perfectly cooked. The corn base was to die for. Service was perfect.
Always a great experience, food, service and atmosphere.
This is one of the best places I’ve eaten at in the valley. The service is incredible and the space is bright and fun. Also the food is great! Wonderful place for a date.
Love this place!
Excellent, as always! I make my way to this restaurant a few times a year and always enjoy it! We bring a group of six people, usually. Such a nice setting, and the food and service are always perfect. Thank you! Nice place!
Perfect place for special occasions. Great value for money. A cozy and lively atmosphere with delicious food options.
