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'm in Scottsdale a couple times per year and I always find a way to get to Olive & Ivy. Even if I have to go out of my way. The food is fantastic, great wine list, and awesome local bottled beer. I have never been disappointed.

    This continues to be one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always good and the staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Our favorite drink is the Belvedere Blue. A sweet, yummy martini. Perfect drink to start the evening.

    We were initially introduced to Olive and Ivy on First Thursday as a place to gather for drinks and snacks after doing the studio tour. We loved everything about the place. The atmosphere is open and friendly, the ambience was fantastic and the food and wine was great. We have been back several times with friends-- lunch, dinner, all times of the day and evening. We have never been disappointed.

  • "Waterfront" Dining in Phoenix
    ChanAZ
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    Built on the canal and billed as waterfront, Olive & Ivy is a great dining experience. We had a "waterfront" table and definitely recommend asking for outdoor seating since it can be quite loud inside. Note: If you book on Open Table, you do not get priority for outside seating - we lucked out due to cancellations. Our party of three ordered an antipasto appetizer and meals of sea scallops, spicy shrimp risotto and a pasta dish with sorbet for dessert. Excellent food, great service with a wonderful ambiance - for us, this has become a favorite, along with The Mission, when we visit Phoenix.

    The food was excellent and our server performed flawlessly and thoughtfully. We tried the cheese cauliflower soup, antipasto platter, chicken parmesan, and flatbread. The broiled asparagus on the platter tasted as good as I've tried. The fresh bread and pesto that came with the meal was a nice surprise. Because the portions are large and the food so tasty, this is a good restaurant for sharing. Afterward, we walked along the canal which is bedecked with lovely lighted floating sculptures. We could see them from our table. A wonderful evening. If you are seated in the main dining room, you get more 'music' than might be comfortable. I'm glad we were removed from it.

    We enjoyed a very delicious evening at the Scottsdale location. Our waiter was great, the food was delicious. We chose to sit in the outdoor patio. Was very noisy but so was inside. It was a treat to have some gluten free options as my husband is Celiac, but gluten free bread or crackers would have been nice to accompany an oil dip while we were waiting for our meal. Just a suggestion not a complaint.

    A perfect Arizona patio night was enhanced by an efficient friendly waiter and a delicious stuffed date appetizer, perfectly cooked sea bass and scallops, finished with a single scoop of yummy gelato. Also love the creative sides included. After a dip in overall quality, they have come back strong. Can't wait to go back.

    The food was great, however the service was a little hit or miss. It was our first time at this resturant, we had to ask for the bread when we saw another table get it, and my kale salad never arrived. The food presentation, and taste was wonderful, but we were looking for a slow relaxing meal, and even indicated that, however our food arrived very quickly after we had ordered, and we felt like we were a little rushed thru our leisurely evening we had wanted. The bruschetta trio we choose for an appetizer was amazing, and the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin with the sweet potato hash was the favorite at the table. We will definitely be back to try this restaurant again, and hope for a little better attention to detail by our server

    To me, a restaurant needs good food and delightful ambience to score highly. Olive and Ivy provides both. Our waiter, Chris was gracious, efficient and fun. The menu offerings are varied and even adventurous. Everything we ordered was great except for the sangria. It was a bit like glorified fruit juice. The food, however, was outstanding, served in a timely manner and delicious. Olive and Ivy definitely has a place on our "favorites" list.

    We've been enjoying Olive and Ivy for years and am pleased to say they remain solid. The food is solid although not quite up to the standards of the their first year of opening. The wine list has slipped for sure. This restaurant is sliding hard to the noisy casual. O & I has always been energetic but now it is just noisy with annoying music that is played tooo loud for dinner conversation. FOOTNOTE: We made our OpenTable reservation weeks in advance for a table outside. We were called by staff the day before to say they could not accomodate an outside table because-- people who CALL in for reservations outside have priority over OpenTable reservations. Clearly, this restaurant puts the OpenTable folks on a 2nd class list.

    We ate at Olive & Ivy recently on a trip to Scottsdale. We enjoyed our dinner so much that we returned for dinner again on our last night in town. The restaurant is in a large shopping center, but you'd never know it once indoors. It has a great outdoor patio as well as a beautiful interior. Parking is free in the nearby covered parking garages or there is also valet parking right outside. The food was great and the atmosphere was outstanding. I highly recommend it for a dinner when you visit Scottsdale or Phoenix.

    Great menu. Indoor and outdoor seating are two different worlds. We wanted to sit outdoors as a table of 4 cannot really talk inside given the acoustics. Didn't book early enough and sat inside. Had a great time and will make sure to call ahead and get an outdoor table next time.

    Staff at Olive and Ivy made our anniversary dinner memorable. They were attentive but gave us the space needed; the right balance was provided. The food is excellent, due in large part to the added ingredients to each dish. The bacon covered dates were amazing.
