Diner Reviews
  • "Fantastic food and friendly service. They were accommodating to split two dinners in the kitchen for us when we could not decide which dish we wanted. And everything was delicious! I would definitely come again!"

  • "Based on the review we decided to try this restaurant and also for the 1000 points on the reservation. The restaurant has a down to earth home style restaurant feeling. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. We ordered salmon soup which was outstanding. The salad was also very flavorful. For entree I had the special - trio of Moussaka, Makaronada, and Spanakopita. All were delicious and well made with large portion. My husband had the lamb chop special. It was really good also. The owner came by few times to ensure we were having a good meal and recommended a special dessert. He also offered us Greek coffee on the house. We were also surprised at the very reasonable price at the end. Great location, great food and service!"

  • "We had mostly appetizer and salad for a late lunch. They were tasty and well presented. The salad with 3 lamb chops was a good deal. The only negative was the Waitress who was obviously in a hurry to leave. Her lunch shift was over mid meal and instead of assigning another wait staff she kept coming over to remove dishes while we were eating."

  • "Visit number 5 and still a winner. We've been working our way through menu and have yet to be disappointed. I had the pork chops this time and they were extremely flavorful, very thick and the lemon potatoes were very good. Once again, we didn't have room for dessert."

  • "I went to Black Olive for lunch. I went a bit later (1:30 pm) and there were only two customers including me. I had spanakopita and a Greek salad for $10. It was delicious and filling; the portions at Black Olive are generous. I could make this a regular spot in my lunch rotation."

  • "It just keeps getting better!! This is my 4th visit to the Black Olive and I am continually impressed by the level of service and the quality of the food served in this "oasis in a strip mall". The Plaki was outstanding (the underlying fish was scrod), the mixed grille appetizer pleased everyone at the table with the combination of sausage, ribs and lamb. The 4 dip combination with pita was also a great appetizer and one of my friends had the salmon. He said that it was very tasty without being overcooked. My other friend had the leg of lamb which he said was excellent. The desserts were wonderful and I continue to recommend the Black Olive to anyone who'll listen!"

  • "This is one of our favorite local restaurants, with good, fresh food and reasonable prices. On Saturday I asked to substitute the avogolemono (sorry if I butchered the spelling) soup for the lentil that was offered, and the waitress refused. I asked her to chek withthe owner, who was on site, and she again refused. I have alwasy been accommodated with this request in the past; perhaps the waitress was new. I paid extra for the soup; it was only four bucks, but it's not a good idea for a restaurant to leave a bad taste in the mouth of a regular customer. I will give them onemore try, though, but if this restrictive policy continues, well.there are lots of other restaurants on the same block."

  • "I am half Greek and was very impressed with this restaurant. The menu selection was awesome and everything to our appetizers, entrees and dessert was fantastic! Authentic greek cuisine at a very affordable price! Don't forget it's Byob!"

  • "This was my first time for dinner. Had been there one other time for lunch. My husband and I shared the roast chicken and the leg of lamb. They were both really good. BUT . . . my favorite was the dish I had for lunch. That was the gyro platter. And it only costs $12. I would get that for dinner as well. It was REALLY delicious!"

  • "The staff was knowledgeable and gracious, the food was excellent!! The owner was present and delivered a special appetizer, gratis. The octopus was tender, seasoned and grilled to perfection. The spanakopita was flavorful and lacked the layer upon layer of filo that is the hallmark of many spinach pies while the spinach was seasoned to perfection! They have an outstanding array of sauces for dipping and they were wonderful! This is a real find to be located in a glorified strip mall!! The menu is not huge, but they do what they do very well. Remember that this is BYOB so you can't go wrong with the wine list!"

  • "Authentic Greek food. Nice BYOB. Wait staff is very attentive. Food is delicious and reasonably priced. We will return. Great place to dine before or after a movie at the nearby theater complex."

  • "From the moment I arrived, everyone in the restaurant was friendly and warm and that persisted throughout my visit. I was surprised by the generosity of the portions but that only meant that I could enjoy it again the next day. I had the spanikopita which was the biggest surprise. I was expecting a few thin triangles but receive a loaf! It was tasty but too much to eat at one sitting. In addition I had the hummus which was very good and perfectly complemented by warm pita bread. I will go back but will order less or take a friend."

  • "The bb shrimp app was excellent but the other dishes had no flavor and were extrenmely bland. Our server conversed with another table for at least 15 minutes or more before serving our soups nor did she ever come back until she brought the check."

  • "We really enjoyed our Saturday dinner at Black Olive. Our server Brianna was excellent and extremely helpful in selecting our food. The braised lamb shank special was amazing, and I would never have looked at the specials menu without her help. Really tasty and tender as could be. She also recommended the shrimp dish my Sweetie had and it was also great. The lemon potatoes were really special, never had anything like that before. We will go back."

  • "This is a local, upretentious, local restaurant serving excellent Greek food at reasonable prices. In addition to the usual Greek restaurant fare, there are daily specials including fresh fish and several lamb dishes. My wife had the bronzino, and I enjoyed the braised lamb shank. Entrees include a soup or salad. The service is excellent and the BYO keeps prices moderate. It's one of our favorite local restaurants."
