9 Olives reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Amazing but changing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 6/1/2013
    We went on June 1, a night they said was their first "completely revamped." We loved it so we were dismayed when they said they were completely changing the menu after the Living Social deal was finished the next night. Food was excellent. The patio downstairs is gorgeous. Inside was quiet enough to enjoy your tablemate's company. Fascinating art on the walls. Thoughtfully designed with many different spaces throughout for dining or bar scene for couples and groups. They don't use Open Table any more, however.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 5/26/2013
    The food was delicious and each course was individually well balanced ... there were several different courses and each one was delivered to our table by the chef. My only food complaint is that it was ALL very rich. There was nothing served to cleanse your palate between courses and nothing at the end to finish the meal. For foodies, this oversite in a meal like this is a real letdown. Also, their bloody marys could use some flavor. They tasted more like shrimp cocktail without the shrimp and were almost too hot to even drink (so full of horseradish). In looking around the restaurant, I noted not one was more than 1/2 gone.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/25/2013
    The chef, Jonathan, a delightful Irish lad, can cook! We went for the prix fixe dinner ... absolutely superb ... six courses ... every one with an exquisite presentation. Mini crab cake with "shrimp hollandaise," short-rib ravioli, Turbot that was the freshest, sweetest fish I've had in ages (saying "succulent" doesn't do it justice), rack of lamb done to perfection (medium rare with a savory crust) served on a wooden plank with candied carrot strips (are you salivating yet?), prime filet mignon (tender!!!) served on a bed of garlic smashed potatoes, and for dessert a thick chocolate mousse that we barely had room for. This is definitely a "can't wait to go back to" place and is ideal for special events.

    Food was horrible! Every course tasted stale and dry seems like it had been premade and just scooped up as orders came in Dessert was lack luster only thing that saved the nite was the filet mignon which was tender... Don't go here!

    The brunch my fiancé and I had was excellent, with plenty to eat and all very well executed. Was a shame we were too full to finish all the courses.

    We had the prie fixe dinner. It was delicious. The server Jason was great. Eat downstairs by the stone walls very intimate.My husband loved the Pilsner beer. The filet was like like meat butter, if there is such a thing.Mmmm. The scallop course was yummy,too. I was not a fan of the pork ( a little dry) but the grits with it was fantastic. I truly loved it.

    Excellent food and service for brunch. Parking for Sunday Brunch is very confusing and not well-marked. It's not fun to slow down on Sunset Blvd to look for valet parking.

    9 Olives is fantastic! Surprisingly the restaurant didn't have a whole lot of people in it, but I think that's just because its hard to find (the sign is not very visible from the street). But the food was amazing and the service was excellent as well. They also have some really great signature coctails too. If you like good food/drinks and a quiet-ish place to enjoy them with friends, try this place out. You won't regret it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 3/29/2013
    I picked this place because of all the quality reviews. However, when we arrived on a 'busy' Friday night it was completely dead. My date and I accounted for the 4th and 5th guests dining there. The food was ok. Not great, ok. Our server was attentive, because he had nothing else to do. But he was not very confident in the food or the restaurant. The drinks were bad and I felt embarrassed to bring a date to an empty restaurant on Sunset.

    For once, we weren't blasted out of our seats with the noise. We've been there twice. My husband liked the jambalaya so much the first time, he was easily persuaded to eat there again. The had changed their menu to offer more Mediterranean and fewer southern dishes and the jambalaya wasn't on the menu. For kicks, we asked if the chef would consider making it for him, and, to our surprise, he said that he'd be happy to! Both menues were great, but there is a bit too much oil in the food. Other than that, it was a very good meal.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 2/2/2013
    First off I would like to say that the restaurant has no parking.. This was not made clear on their wedsite and although there are lots of Valet parking in the area it's still a inconvenience. The waitress was pleasant but not very knowledgeable on the menu and had to be prompted to explain the dishes. But by far the biggest issue was that my 7 year old son ordered sliders and while eating one almost chocked on a large piece of bone that was inside the meat! This is inexcusable and very dangerous. The waitress apologized, no one from management spoke to us but at the end of the meal they compted 2 desserts! If that was supposed to make up for the fiasco it certainly didn't .

    The food was BRILLIANT. The service impeccable. We had the Lamb and Filet Mignon. Best cuts of meat I have seen in years and cooked to perfection. You will not be disappointed. If I had one gripe, and it's a small one, it was that they could use some acoustic treatment on the walls to help with the noise level. That's it. YOU will love this restaurant.

    Parking was very difficult. No valet and the lot next to the restaurant is a public lot that charges $20 flat rate. The food OK. Service was polite but not warm. Overall a mediocre experience. Considering the incredible restaurants on the Sunset Strip, we will not return to 9 Olives when we want a night out in West Hollywood.

    This is a new restaurant, but they're doing most things very right. The food is beautifully prepared, inventive and delicious. The setting is lovely, quiet and romantic. In all, a wonderful experience worthy of the LA foodie scene.
