  • "Delicious, fresh food, uniquely prepared, awesome service, chicly-decorated restaurant. Consistently great experience each time we dine at Olive and Vine. Owner was present and visible during dinner service, visited each table to check-in, which is always a nice touch. Owner's daughter was our server and she was attentive, knowledgeable and very personable. All around, a fantastic dinner. Will definitely be back!"

  • "We had a marvelous night. We were a party of 6, and were attended too immediately. The servers knew the menu, wines and what to pair with what. The Bok Choi dumplings were wonderful, as was the pork belly appetizer, melt in your mouth and perfectly seasoned. We actually had all of the appetizers (shared) and they were one better than the next. The salads were the same. And the mains followed suit. Lamb Chops medium rare, done to perfection. The wait staff took special care to bring proper sharing plates and utensils and keep the plates coming at a perfect pace. Not to fast or slow. This is an amazing place. DO NOT miss it! Cheers!"

  • "Everything from beginning to end was a memorable meal. Looking forward to dining there again soon! Wonderful food and the wine we chose "The Two Amigos Viognier" complimented it very nicely. "

  • "Had big expectations, tough to get a reservation here. The ambiance was lovely, very "wine country"-ish. Everything started out great. Our apps and mains tasted very good. But our server(s) didn't stop by after that to see how our dinners were, until we'll after we were done. We ordered dessert but then we waited and waited and waited for our desserts, until we finally had to ask if they were coming soon. We had two servers, and apparently no one put in our dessert order. It was a Monday night even. Note: Buy a bottle of wine and then there's no charge on the 2nd bottle that you bring. It was pricey, and we would have been more pleased if there was good consistent service."

  • "Our visit was the latest of many previous ones. Inventive and carefully prepared menu items as always, and a dining delight if one does not like to be rushed. The wine list features many local wines at a reasonable mark-up. Complaints? Niggling ones regarding awkward service. Even though the restaurant was not full when we arrived, I had to summon a server twice before the bread came, and we waited a good 30 minutes for our salads to arrive. Notwithstanding that, our server was a delightful and chatty young lady. Maybe too chatty I suppose. "

  • "Wonderful from beginning to end, we were seated immediately on our arrival and were offered water, our wine orders were delivered very quickly. The chef sent out an amuse bouche of tiny, sweet tomatoes with house made mozzarella and balsamic, wonderful way to start. We chose an appetizer of tender asparagus with a romesco sauce. I don't usually order chicken at restaurants because Hey, I can have chicken at home, but this time the roasted Meyer Lemon chicken was too tempting, and it was so tender and flavorful without the lemon being overwhelming. My husband ordered the Lamb porterhouse, which was cooked perfectly and served with a light, crispy risotto cake. The owners stopped by the table to greet us, all in all a great experience."

  • "We have dined here many times and the food is always good. This time, we had dined with other locals who had never been to O and V before. Since it was our anniversary we brought a special bottle of wine that was not on the menu, and one of the guests ordered two glasses of wine from the menu. When the bill came, we were charged $25.00 corkage fee. There are several restaurants in the Valley that do not charge corkage, especially to locals, and it is rare to find a similar restaurant in the area that charges $25.00 corkage for one bottle of wine. It was unfortunate, because our friends said although the food was good, the corkage fee will keep them from returning."

  • "This is one of our favorite Glen Ellen restaurants. This particular night it was extremely busy. We had to wait 20 minutes after our reservation time. They had two large parties which seemed to affect the service to other tables. Ours was very, very slow. As usual, the food was wonderful. Summer salad with fresh peas and asparagus delicious! Halibut also very good. We'll be back but I hope they schedule better if they have multiple large parties coming in. Or hope to go in when they don't. We'll be back. "

  • "Not sure if it's because I like in Berkeley, but I thought Olive and Vine was good, but not memorable enough for a return. The food is top quality and prepared well. The prices are fair. The experience was just not special enough to impress. The ceilings are very high and the ceiling fans were going non-stop which made the room cold for my taste. The crowd was older when my boyfriend and I dined there, yet the acoustics of the room were a bit loud. Bread was slow to come, as was the glass of wine I had ordered with my entre. I also would have appreciated more vegetarian/pescatarian options for the entrees."

  • "While on a birthday trip with a group of 6 people we found a review of Olive & Vine and decided to make the reservation. Since we were staying in Glen Ellen we were happy to be close to our lodging as well. The restaurant is first class. The food was outstanding - from the homemade green goddess salad dressing (great!) to all of the entrees our group had. I ordered the pork chop that was served over a sort of guacamole that was as good as the perfectly cooked chop. Very good wine list and the restaurant sommiller was helpful with the wine we ordered as well as the bottle we brought with us."

  • "We selected Olive and Vine from the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were looking for a high end place with a good wine list to celebrate our 20th anniversary and this place appeared to fit the bill. We noted on our open table reservation that it was our 20th just in case it would be important to them. When we arrived, the hostess greeted us with a "happy anniversary" and we noted on our menus at the top they had inserted "happy anniversary" in the title. Nice touch. Over the course of the night, every waiter and bidder in the place made it a point to wish us a happy anniversary. We were impressed. The owner is a somalier and very gracious and he paired each course with a local wine. The food was outstanding with veggies from their garden. "

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."
