  • "Our entire experience was divine: food, service, selections everything."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "6 of us ate here and five of the six thought the food was exceptional--the one who was disappointed ordered a chicken dish that was dry --but the pork. fish, and lamb were excellent--the wine list was good with a variety of price ranges but we felt pressured to order wine in the $115 to $125 category even though we tried to indicate that this was more than we were prepared to pay--on the whole though an exceptional restaurant for its food"

  • "Good food, but limited menu and a little on the pricey side for the venue. Service is very attentive with the food presented timely and well. We're local and will only go there when we're ready to drop some bucks on dinner."

  • "After a while we've had every dish on the regular menu, so we really look forward to the Wednesday night specials. Last week the Thai seafood red curry was just fabulous!"

  • "One of the best restaurants in Sonoma/Glen Ellen. The staff are great and create a wonderful dining experience. Emily is awesome! Great wine list, changing menu items, fresh ingredients, and awesome dessert as well. I would definitely recommend for any occasion. Reservations recommended."

  • "One of the 3 to 4 very top restaurants in Sonoma Valley."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Olive and Vine is a moderate sized family run place that really touches all the bases. From initial greeting to walking out the door, everything was just perfect. Imaginative recipes perfectly executed. Very knowledgeable sommelier. Nice wait staff, too. For us, this makes THREE really great restaurants in the little town of Glen Ellen. We would recommend Olive and Vine to anyone. We are very lucky to live nearby."

  • "Two of us went for dinner at Olive & Vine last week and had a wildly divergent experience. We ordered/shared two salads and two entrees. One of the salads (Beet) was dry with virtually no flavor or interest. The other, their version of a Caesar was great. The same with entrees. The steak was beautifully cooked and seasoned although there was a significant amount of fat and gristle. The stuffed potato was great. The lamb chop was over cooked (ordered medium rare, it came out much closer to well done) and so small that I barely got two bites - most of which were gristle. On both plates there was a medley of vegetables - none of which were cooked or seasoned at all. Inconsistent and way too expensive."

  • "Olive and Vine is a gem of a restaurant in Glen Ellen. Food and service were excellent. The owner stopped at our table for a chat, a very nice touch. My husband loved his lamb dish and I greatly enjoyed the gnocchi. The apple crisp dessert was divine. O & V was busy on a Wednesday night in the off-season so I recommend reservations. Enjoy!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Wonderful food,!! Everyone enjoyed their entrees. Lamb porterhouse very flavorful .. The special chicken with wine was talked about the next day from a hard to pease palate. Service was great from the decanting of our wines to making us feel welcome from both the owners. Thanks Katherine."

  • "My wife and I took advantage of O&V's very appealing prixe fixe menu during SoCo Restaurant Week. The (nontraditional but inspired) pork osso bucco was over-the-top good, one of the best OB we've ever had. It swam in a pinot noir/cherry sauce with a couple types of rice. Nicely-done mixed veggies on the side. Our dessert was a beautiful bread pudding with sliced pears and a caramel sauce. It was heavenly, especially paired with the late-harvest viognier. Corkage ($25) is a little steep for Sonoma, but we're definitely going back!"

  • "Loved the hidden gem feel as we entered from the long hallway. Loved the look and feel of the place. Loved the food, wine and service. Did I leave anything out?"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "The Halibut was great. I shared some food with others and the beans, rice and tamale were fantastic. The distance from one of our table mates was a bit too far and I could not hear him very well. Otherwise a great meal. We have had three meals at least. All good, but this one of the best. Thanks, Dave"

  • "Tried this restaurant out during Restaurant Week. Very nice prix fixe meal. Everything tasted great. Service was outstanding. Nice Wine list, but $20 corkage was at least 1/2 the cost of any bottle on the list. Noise level was fairly high since Restaurant week created a very full house. I definitely would recommend it for a special occasion."

  • "Great restaurant. Owner was especially nice. We were first time visitors to the area and hope to return soon and will certainly go back to this restaurant."

  • "Cooked chicken can have nothing special. The crisp and juicy qualities of this plus the flufiest corn mousse... no surprises here since its owner Catherine Driggers is there providing her signature outstanding quality and service!!"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Good Grief, $25 corkage. I guess they're trying to discourage diners from bringing in their own wine. But it's smack in the middle of wine country. I thought every meal was about $10 to high. I just dined at A16, basically same 2 meals and the tab was $21 less. I hear they have a neighborhood night, and a reasonable menu, we live just a few miles away so might go back and try that."

  • "There are so many nice places to eat in the town of Sonoma and Sonoma Valley but I really think that this is Sonoma dining at its best! In the town of Glen Ellen located in a small center that has a lot of history. In fact, when you come in through the entrance you walk down a long hall where you can read some of the history as well as look at pictures of years past. The food is yummy and is presented well. The service is excellent without being pretentious. This makes for a very comfortable dining experience. They also have a good selection of wines as well."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Olive and Vine is one of our top picks to have a truly nice dinner out. We are locals and we consider this to be one of the best 'neighborhood gems' around. Service, service, service, from the owner to the wait-staff to their new sommelier James who is a young very passionate soon to be wine star in the Valley's wine industry. You never have to worry about the quality of the food as it is all simply exquisite and you just can't make a wrong choice. Your only problem will be, making choice."

  • "Unfortunately we had a bad experience because we booked with Open Table. I requested a table for 7 pm and your website said that only 6:00 and 7:45 were available. So I booked for 7:45 although that is really too late to be driving home after dinner to Sonoma. Later I contacted Open Table again to add one to our part and I hoped that I would be able to get an earlier time. But no...just the same times available. When we arrived at the restaurant it was empty except for one table. I asked what was going on and it had been slow all evening. They could have taken us at any time!! So we ate alone and kept the staff there late and it ws all unnecessary. Ann Wiklund"

  • "Our high expectations were met. We decided to go with a couple of "noshes" and a couple of "middles" for our meal. It was just the right amount of food for an early dinner. The personal touch of the owners and the owners' daughter stopping by to introduce themselves and to check in on our menu choices is always welcomed. The atmosphere just sets you up to enjoy delicious food and a glass of Nebiola (sp?) wine. Will return next time in Glen Ellen."

  • "The service is amazing (both owners were there that night personally checking on tables and making amazing suggestions for pairings), the food is divine, and the sparkly crystal chandeliers and candlelight make the whole place warm, inviting, and romantic. I usually skip over a chicken entree, but their roasted chicken with wild mushroom bread pudding is a thing of perfection. It's as good as any steak I've ever had. My husband and I each chose a dessert, and again, while I go for chocolate every time, his walnut cake was a caramel-brown-sugar-buttery slice of heaven. I'll get that next time for sure. Everything we had was incredible. Olive and Vine is a treasure!"

  • "The main dishes we ordered, chicken and lamb, were outstanding. The service impeccable and very attentive."

  • "overall good restaurant but rather expensive for Glen Ellen. There are at least six restaurants in the near area, The Fig as an example does not charge a corkage and Olive and Vine charges a San Francisco like corkage of $25.00. Starters are not large and expensive too. I think there are better choices in the area."

  • "We have dined here at least 6-7 times and have never been disappointed. This was their Wednesday night neighbors dinner and the food was "to die for" Beautifully prepared and add the super service it was a another memorable evening."

  • "We live done the road on a vineyard on Highway 12, and we are sorry we haven't found this gem earlier. A tad pricey but worth it with delicious food and great architectural ambience. We couldn't get in until 9PM but it was worth the wait. Combine this with an over-night stay locally and a visit to Joack London State Park"

  • "One can always count on creative, top level food at this restaurant and this time it did not disappoint! The originality of the chef in creating food that shines makes this one of the BEST restaurants in Glen Ellen, and even the Sonoma Valley. The seasonal dishes are always delicious and the plates are work of art. Need I go on??"

  • "Staff friendly but their inexperience shows for a fine dining establishment. Drawn from the local quaint area. Waiter rushed us for our order although the restaurant was still empty. Servers had poor sense of timing. Runners brought out food when previous course was unfinished. Brought out dessert when my wife was obviously away from the table, allowing the ice cream to melt. Otherwise, food was excellent. Owners friendly. Sommelier friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Good wine selection. I still tipped properly. I would return."

Sommelier took time to chat with us about a bottle of wine we brought with us and recmmend others from their list that he thought we would like based on his what we brought. Great Experience all around."

  • "We live locally and dine at Olive and Vine a lot. This was not a favorable experience, except for James the Sommelier, who was superb. It was not a busy night at the restaurant, yet we waited 45 minutes for our food to arrive, some of the food was served cold ,when it should have been a hot dish, and the water bottle remained empty for twenty minutes until we asked the wait staff to refill it. Hope this was just an off night for some reason and not an indication of anything else."

We could absolutely kick ourselves for waiting so long to experience dinner at the Olive and Vine. It was absolutely incredible from when we were met at the door until we were wished a good evening on the way out. It's not just dinner it's an experience!!! Definitely be back!!"
