Diner Reviews
  • "It is a little pricey but given it is BYOB I can get past that. However, the food was not great. I ordered the Paella and the rice was flavorless and the various meats/shellfish were overcooked. I am Portuguese so I have had paella many times. This one was at the bottom. My husband ordered the pasta with sausage and spinach in vodka sauce which is a meal I make often. There was a small amount of sausage, on the small side in general. Doesn't cost much for the restaurant to give you extra pasta even. The mussels appetizer was very yummy in a cilantro sauce. What a refreshing change. The sangria is always good too."

  • "We had a great waiter. The salad was fabulous. When it came to our seafood dishes, everything was overcooked. The shrimp appetizer as well as all the seafood was overcooked & dry. The mussels were not open in the paella & the clams were so tiny you couldn't see them. The manager apologized and said there was a problem that he would correct. But we were disappointed since the waiter had told us all the seafood was awesome. I will try Olive Lucy's again.The manager did make a slight adjustment on our bill. They were all very nice."

  • "Great service, great food, fun atmosphere & affordable! Olive Lucy's is something to love! We arrived early- stayed late & no one rushed us! Can't remember the last time - if ever that we were able to enjoy a Sunday lunch/dinner for 3 hours! Definitely worth keeping on the top 10 list!"

  • "My wife and I visited Olive Lucy's based on a recommendation from a friend. Overall, the restaurant was nice, the wait staff was very friendly & knowledgable. The food presentation and appetizer (fried Calamari) was also very good. I ordered blackened, spicy Sea Scallops with Risotto and my wife ordered the Paella. The Risotto was very good but the scallops were a little bit overcooked and a little too salty. The Paella looked and smelled great when it arrived but it was missing Chorizo, the lobster tail hadn't been deveined and the whole plate was overcooked. We sent the Paella back, paid the check, and left. We walked away feeling like this restaurant was overpriced."

  • "We thought the food was very good. 4 people ordered stuffed mushrooms which were excellent, Beet salad which was good but difficult to eat neatly, cod, which was good but spicy, crab ravioli which tasted excellent but the shrimp and lobster sauce had no lobster we could find, steak which was good and mariscada which was the best entree of the evening. The service was very good, refilled drinks and was available but not obtrusive. Downside was the noise level. By the time we left at 8:15 on Friday evening, conversation was impossible. I might try it again if they do something about the noise. It is pricey."

  • "Our party consisted of three foodies. We did not feel that the quality of the food or the ambiance was up to the standards of other BYO restaurants in the area. So I would say it was good but not great."

  • "Food was good, if pricey. Nice-looking place, though the booth seats were uncomfortable. Very noisy, difficult to hear people talking right across our table. I was eager to get out of there, and others in our group felt the same. I would not return if conversation with my companions is important."

  • "The restaurant is beautiful, the service is great but the food is bad! Two out of four of us had major dish errors. My fish special which was supposed to come with a potato crust came with the crust burned to a char so I had to send it back and ask for a new crust. The waiter assured me that it should take no more than 5 minute but it turned out to be 30. When the dish was brought back it was completely remade and now completely bland with the exception of the sauce which was now so horribly bitter it was unedible. Another guest with food allergies simply asked that her pork chop be unsalted. The first time it came it was loaded with salt. The second time it wasn't but after she waited for half an hour it was pink and underdone. Not good!"

  • "This was my first time at Olive Lucy's and the food and service were great. However the music in the background was a bit loud and conversation levels were raising as the night went on....My only recommendation is to turn it down!"

  • "Nice little restaurant in downtown Morristown. The lobster mac, scallops and pan seared salmon all done perfectly and all delicious. BYOB. Can get a little noisy from time to time depending on the crowd (two birthday dinners) but not a deterrent. Will definitely go back."

  • "I went to Olive Lucy this past weekend with a group of 6 girls for a bachellorette dinner. The wait staff was awesome, specifically our server Maggie, and the manager Stephen accommodated our every need. The decor is classy and absolutely adorable. The food was fantastic and we will all be back to eat there again."

  • "When making reservation never told its BYOB 1/3 of the Muscles Fri Diabalo were unopened ( Don't eat unopened muscles ) waiter agreed and did nothing Two steaks ordered 1 medium, 1 medium rare. Both well done again waiter told nothing done All in all a bad expirence"

  • "I've eaten at this establishment many times and have always enjoyed the food and the ambiance. This was the first time, with a 6:45pm reservation, that I found the noise level intolerable. It was difficult to have a nice dinner when a group of 12 were howling nearby. I told our waitress, but nothing was done. People who feel the need to scream across the table should do so in their own homes. It was rude and disrespectful to other diners in the restaurant."

  • "Fun, finely decorated room, with a lot of energy. Dishes are hit or miss, but the flavored are mostly good. My stuffed chicken was excellent! Noisy crowd, but great for an upbeat night out. Service is friendly."

  • "I'm a bit of a food snob because I live in NYC. However, Olive & Lucy's has the potential to be great!! The decor is gorgeous and I love the open kitchen concept. The menu is my issue. While the food was pretty good and had decent portions, the menu options are all over the place and quite random. My meal was fine but I tried my friends garlic shrimp and the sauce was just oil. The bread was amazing!! I think we had three baskets. I love that its BYOB!! I'll go back for sure."

  • "Olive Lucy is our go-to restaurant in Morristown - a diverse but manageable menu, including well-prepared Italian and Portugese dishes; cool and clean atmosphere; and a friendly wait staff. I recently ordered a special seafood pasta dish that was full of shrimp and crab in a tasty wine and garlic sauce. I would have preferred the pasta a bit more al dente with a bit less sauce, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. As a BYO, you can bring or order wine from a local shop that delivers to your table! It's a shame there is no outdoor patio to provide one more seating option."

  • "Even though they were out of the flounder and the scallops, my husband's and my first choices, the salmon was perfect. Our server was attentive and friendly. The owner stopped over to thank us for coming. It was a feel good evening."

  • "Our experience was excellent from the moment we walked in the door - friendly hostess, attentive service, great ambience. It's BYOB, who doesn't love that? Our waiter had out bottle of wine turned into a yummy pitcher of sangria shortly after we were seated. And the food! The food was fantastic! I'd highly recommend the shrimp sliders appetizer. The stuffed chicken & seafood fra diavlo were excellent as well. Flavorful and cooked to perfection. An added bonus, the owner came to our table and offered us dessert & coffee on the house (hostess must have told him it was our anniversary, but still a very nice gesture)! We'll definitely be back & we'll be bringing friends!"

  • "My husband and I dined there this past Saturday night. I had the salmon special and it was delicious, however, it was a tad on the drier side for my preference but still delicious! My husband had the Mariscada with the blackened linguini. It was phenomenal and I plan to go back there soon so I can order that. The restaurant is a BYO and they offer sangria (made with your wine) so bring a bottle and have them make you a red or white sangria. We had the red and really liked it. If we knew this in advance we probably would have brought a cheaper bottle. The restaurant offers a great atmosphere. The ladies room was very clean and tastefully done. The manger Steven was very kind and welcoming. We definitely recommend!"

  • "The atmosphere is great. The host was gracious and welcoming, I love the decor and the staff is really friendly and do a great job. The food was terrific. Beginning with the great warm rolls and butter, the appetizers were very good, and the entrees were great. (My date had Chicken Rolletini and i had the Pork Chop.) The fact that it is a BYOB is also GREAT. So we had a great meal with appetizers and shared a dessert for less than $100. I highly recommend Olive Lucy's."

  • "I retried this restaurant for a second time. My first time I went when it was brand new. I thought it was OK. Since it's been around for a while now, I thought I would try it again with other friends. Again, it was OK. The portion sizes are small and a little on the pricey side. The food is good and our server was attentive. Parking is a huge problem but it is a BYO! Olive Lucy's is definitely worth a try, but not sure I will be back."

  • "Server said there was s new chef with lots of menu ideas. We ordered the caprese salad to start. Skimpy for $10. Then wife and I each had the short ribs, which is their house specialty. Robs were good but mashed potatoes were instant, at least they tasted that way. Ir came with one large and very bland broccoli stalk. Portion seemed very small in comparison to what we remember. We left feeling yhis was an overpriced meal even after 10% discount. Sadly , we don't plan on returning anytime soon. It was one of our favorites."
