Great food, great service!Interesting foods with what I think was a Mediterranean theme. The music (almost Latin) didn't quite jive with the menu, but it wasn't dustacting...just an observation. The olive tapenade starter with the bread basket (no charge) was quite delicious.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food, Poor ServiceThe food at Hot Olives was so delicious! I highly recommend anything on the menu. The service however, was not so good. It took an extremely long time to place a drink order and to get the drinks. Besides the service, it was great.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFinish up your Park ave stroll hereThe excellent menu makes it hard to decide but our server was great to elaborate on our options. Everything we ordered was timed perfectly, hot, and delicious...which is an understatement. Artichoke/ mushroom flatbread was excellent. Everyone was more than pleased with their entrees.
Iron chairs on tile floors are hard to move around without making very loud unpleasant noise, and somewhat uncomfortable.
We will definitely be coming back and exploring the menu further. I suggest the Russian Pinot Noir.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBig party handled with easeWe went to Hot Olives with a party of 17 and found both the food and the service to be wonderful. A delightful find, we were especially impressed with the service (handling such a large group is no easy feat) and the food was scrumptious. We really liked the conch fritter and calamari, and the grouper was prepared perfectly. We will definitely make it back to Hot Olives again!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
