    We've been here several times and everything is consistently good. However, for me, it wasn't up to par this time, although my husband enjoyed both his appetizer and his entree. But we'll come back.

    This was our first visit to Olive Lucy's Kitchen Table and we were not disappointed. Somewhat surprised that the restaurant was virtually empty at 6:00pm. Our server Mike was very attentive and more than willing to explain the menu. The food was very good even though we tried some tried but true selections, balsamic calamari, short ribs and stuffed chicken breast. Let's face it, if they can't get the basics right how likely are they to meet expectations on the reach dishes? We will definitely be back to this lovely addition to the Morristown dining scene!

    This restaurant does everything right! From the moment you walk in the door you are made to feel welcome and a part of the family. The service is attentive and friendly. The menu is interesting full of delicious sounding things that you want to try. It makes it very hard to choose! We were there last Saturday night and it was a full house. Our food was just wonderful! We had their paella and mariscada. YUMMY! Very happy that this restaurant opened its doors so close to home.

    It was our 1st and last visit to Olive Lucy's. We were there for a celebration for my teen Lucy, who was so excited that her name was on the restaurant. It started badly when we told the host about her name and he couldn't have cared less. Several in our party don't eat meat or shellfish and there was almost nothing on the menu for us to order. Then our food took over 30 minutes to come and our waiter was nowhere to be seen to ask about it or explain. Some of our meals were very good, but my 12-year-old, who doesn't eat meat, ordered the penne vodka without sausage and it came with sausage. He's never had sausage because we don't eat pork so he didn't even realize and ate half of it, at which point it was too late to send back.

    Dining at Olive Lucy's was the best restaurant decision I've made in a while. The manager was welcoming and apologetic that the service was slow (it really wasn't) and came to check in several times. The decor was beautiful and tastefully modern and the food was divine. Highly recommend the lobster Mac. Will be returning ASAP

    Was there on a very busy, holiday weekend night & they were short staffed. The food was well prepared & served nicely. Our minimal complaints were addressed by our server and the owner. Being short staffed is an issue in ANY restaurant, and everything possible was done, in addition to complimentary dessert & coffee. We will definitely be back!

    We had dinner there Friday night and had a great time. It is a BYOB and we made martinis at our table, I think a first. The staff was so accommodating and we had so much fun. Love the young waiter who surprised us all with a beautiful song in Italian. Now the food, it is always consistent and so different. Love this place and will be back again this week with other friends

    Portuguese calamari appetizer was very good as was the stuffed mushrooms. The salmon and the short ribs were enjoyed by our friends, however the blue crab ravioli was disappointing. The pasta was very hard and undercooked. The sauce was almost non-existent, so the dish was very dry and tasteless. What really spoiled the evening was the non- stop deafening noise level. We could not hear our waitress and servers. Worst of all we could not even have a conversation with our friends. It was so uncomfortable we did not order dessert because we just wanted to get out of there. We left so disappointed and will probably never go back.

    First, I can't say enough about the atmosphere of this restaurant. I love love love the decor! I made a reservation online and mentioned it was our anniversary. Because of this, we were given a large, comfortable booth that I assume is usually reserved for parties of at least 4. The staff were all VERY attentive and checked on us often to ensure we were comfortable and satisfied. I would call the menu 'eclectic', but there were plenty of options and variety and we enjoyed everything we ordered. We did not feel rushed at all, and as I said, the service was excellent. I will say that this restaurant is pricey, but well worth it for a special occasion!

    My husband and I had come here and had a great meal the first time. The second time we brought 2 other couples and everyone had an equally great experience. The food here is really solid and delicious. The atmosphere is very city-like and the servers have been top-notch. We were treated to singing Friday night from one of the servers that had tried out on The Voice. Lots of fun! I hope that everyone comes out and supports this restaurant to keep it around. It truly is a neighborhood gem.

    This was my first visit to Olive Lucy's and I truly loved it. The restaurant is just bustling with excitement and everyone there was having such a great time. The food was amazing and the service superb. Definitely try the Lobster Mac & Cheese - so creamy, cheesy and full of chunks of lobster. Beware, though... this restaurant is very loud and if you are looking for a cozy, intimate table for two - this might not be for you. But, if you are looking for a great, energetic BYO - definitely come here!!

    This is my first time dining here. This was recommended by another friend. So we chose this restaurant. The noise inside was very loud. This place needs a better acoustic for people to hear each other. Our server was kinda slow. I ordered the cod entrée and it wasn't really nothing special about it. I was not impressed. When we were served our dessert, my friends ordered gelato and crème brulee and the servers gave them a fork as oppose to a spoon. Your servers should be more conscious of what they do. First impression means a lot to me. I don't I will recommend your restaurant to my other friends.

    The menu was interesting, fook ok, decor ok, service was good, very noise and there was no abvience - we came early before the Sat crowd and the restaurant was virtually empty with an exception of a few tables and instead of them setting each of us away from each other for privacy they clumped us together which may be good for their wait staff but it really was not very conducive to a private conversation. The openess, loud atmosphere really takes awary from the food and service, will not go back.

    My first time at Olive Lucy and definitely not my last. Enjoyed a great night - terrific food and super friendly staff. The noise level was a little loud, but it just showed that everyone there was having a great time. Next time I go, I would try and get a booth in the back to see if the noise level is not as high. But all in all I loved i,t and I'm looking forward to going back soon.

    We always have an excellent meal here. The mussels appetizer is one of our favorites; the short ribs and crab cakes are great too. Didn't have any of the pastas this time, but I am thinking about them right now! Service is superior -- the staff is friendly and responsive. There is an obvious effort to make your visit to Olive Lucy's a rewarding and delicious one. And if you are lucky to be there when Joey sings (usually Friday and Saturday nights), it's an added treat.
