A word from Olive & Ivy Restaurant & Marketplace
Dining under the shady trees on Olive and Ivy’s massive patio feels more like Southern France than southern Scottsdale. If you are looking for pomp and circumstance of quiet elegance, try the signature private-dining venue, the Stamp Room. If it’s night-life, we have you covered twice with the outdoor lounge and bar. You’ll enter your own little Mediterranean world the first moment you set foot in Olive & Ivy.

For some, the day simply doesn’t start unless it starts at The Marketplace at Olive & Ivy. Scents of fresh-baked muffins, croissants, and dark rich espresso lure passersby in from the quiet sidewalk. They read the paper. They sip squeezed orange juice. They toast the morning. Help yourself start every day the right way at the Marketplace.

    I've been to Olive & Ivy many times for lunch and have always enjoyed the salads and flatbreads. This time I went for dinner and was a bit disappointed. Very few meat and fish entrees. I ordered the Sea Bass but had to send it back to be cooked. My friend said her scallops weren't cooked well enough either. Perhaps I will just stick to lunch there.

    We've eaten here before, but this was our first time for brunch. As always, the food is incredible and tastes scratch-made. Between my husband, daughter, and I- we shared one of the huge cinnamon rolls. It was warm, gooey and fabulous. We were also pleased that they still serve the fresh pesto and foccacia during brunch as well! Our server was a bit hard to track down, but it was clear that she was just very busy with the Sunday brunch rush. We were all stuffed when we left and still had extra food wrapped up to go.

    We find Olive & Ivy as one of our "go to" places when we have out-of-town visitors. It never fails to impress with the ambiance and the broad and interesting menu. The service is outstanding, attentive, and impressive. The food; excellent. An enjoyable experience and Olive and Ivy never fails to receive compliments from our guests.

    Had dinner in the outside area with my husband. The food is incredible- especially the yummy pesto spread they serve with the bread! Our server was very attentive and even helped my husband customize his order when he was stuck deciding between two entrees. She also made sure we always had full water glasses (a must when it's still so hot out). There was a DJ playing music, but it was MUCH quieter than it has been in the past- so glad the restaurant took that feedback! Overall, wonderful and romantic meal!

    I have had better experiences at this restaurant. My sister and I went for dinner Friday night at 7:00 pm. We were disappointed about two things. The waitress quickly took our order-my sister had an entree salad and I ordered a pasta dish. No sooner had she delivered our wine, our entrees arrived! Food was good, but we felt far too rushed. Second issue, ambiance is nice but VERY noisy at prime time dining time. I have been in and enjoyed a quiet meal when the place is not packed, but when it is full, as it was last Friday night at about 7:00 pm, we felt we had to shout to hear each other, and had no time to enjoy the experience of dining out together. As a result, she and I vowed not to go back for dinner.

    Filet of Beef. Tender, juicy & practically melted in my mouth, possibly the best steak I've ever had. The sauce and potatoes that accompanied my steak were out of this world. My wife had the Sweet Potato Cannelloni and said it was an incredible blend of flavors...Delicious! I love raw horseradish on my steak & the combination of steak, potato, sauce & horseradish was absolutely fabulous, but unless you enjoy a good nose cleaning stay away from it...Very pungent, very strong! Even though it was 105 that evening, we sat outside and was pleasantly surprised by how cool we felt under their misting system. Highly recommend Olive & Ivy's.

    Multiple favors for Bruschetta were unique; the "Manchego" was the best, though none of us in our party of three could taste the Spanish Chorizo that was supposedly in there. All of us enjoyed our entrees thoroughly - pasta was homemade and delicious, as was the flatbread, and the wine.

    Was in Arizona for a few days for a nice weekend with the girlfriend and Olive & Ivy was one of the places that caught my eye when looking for things to do. When we walked in we were instantly greeted by an employee who helped us with our reservations. We got a nice little table next to one of the olive trees and the service was amazingly fast for how busy it was inside. And our server ANDREW <------awesome dude was well versed in the menu and all the little things that made each dish special my only problem is that He is severely underpaid. No he did not bring up his wages and I did not ask but whatever it is that you pay your servers he deserves a raise

    Our waiter (sorry, cannot remember his name, lots of tatoos) was amazing! I was also impressed at the team approach for the servers as there were a couple of staff members keeping an eye on our water/wine glasses. I drank too much though, cause I didn't know my glass was being refilled. :) We will return. Please note, this is not a complaint from my party, but in talking with a friend of mine, she took her grandfather to your restaurant earlier in the day and being that he is 80 wanted to enjoy happy hour, but was not physically able to sit at the high tables, nor the low chairs that are in the bar area. My dear Bessie requested that an exception be made to accommodate his needs, but the manager she spoke with was rude to them both.

    We took the grandkids this time and the place is kid friendly as in being seated and being catered to. I have to say that all our choices of food for adults and kids alike were entirely too salty. Way too salty. From frito misto to pasta with Bolognese to my own risotto. The food is good otherwise. I like the menu. But this time we were disappointed because of the overuse of salt. The restaurant is beautiful, the service great, the place is a great spot to take "out of towners" out. Noise level: noisy on Friday night indoors. But that might be normal. Outdoors might be more quiet.

    The food is always great! The Peanut Butter Pudding..to die for .. but indulge only after a salad. A health conscious menu section and desserts would be nice. Maybe a no sugar added chesecake or gelato would be goid and a symbol for items 600-700 calories or less? Overall great as usual!

    Overall good experience. We were located in a small room away from the busy main dining room, which we loved. We could enjoy the music without been drowned by it. Our server was attentive although he forgot to order 1 order of flatbread. Food was tasty but nothing was a real wow! Great spot nonetheless for dinner and drinks with friends.

    We all had fish, which I guess is fair priced? Salmon, Sea Bass, and Big Eye Tuna....all spot on dishes. Bruchetta on HH is pretty good too, I tried Arugula and Fig as well as the Mozarella one. Moz was a little salty, but overall good flavors and fabulous bread. I hear the marketplace is a great lunch spot, this will be next on my list.

    Quite a pleasant surprise. This casual, drop in-anytime type place had great seafood, wonderful bruschetta and a comfortable atmosphere. It borders the canal and the outside dining is shady and cooled with misters. Service was very accommodating for our 88 year old who only wanted sangria and artichokes! Anyone with a sweet tooth will love the dessert menu.
