Anchovies & Olives Ratings and Reviews
Everything was perfect. We had Branzino and Rock fish and they were delicious like the appetizers we had.
The service was really good.
We had a quiet date with time enough to enjoy our meal and talk. We don't like other restaurants that you are rushed to finished your dinner within an hour.
We celebrated my Aunt's 79th birthday, shared small plates, the food is so fresh and authentic, we love the gnocchi!, everything so tasty, and the service is top-notch, atmosphere has a relaxed, cool vibe, all making for a wonderful, positively memorable evening
Location is unfortunate, felt like it was in a shopping center strip in a residential area. The space is cool. Everything was just okay - service, drinks and food. Nothing bad about our experience but felt disappointed that it was 1 of the 3 dinners we had planned for our trip to Seattle.
We have been going to Anchovies and Olives for a few years now. It started as an Anniversary restaurant recommendation and we have made it our tradition to go there for our wedding anniversary every year. We also go through out the year as well given the changes in menu which, we cannot miss out on.. AMAZING FOOD and DRINKS!! A must do if you are in the area.
Hadn't been there for awhile. Took a good friend from out of town, who wanted a seafood experience. We were seated under a speaker. Had to ask to turn it down, which they did. Then the sun started setting, directly into our eyes. They pulled the "shade", but admitted it didn't really block the sun, so when we tired of squinting, we asked to be moved, which they did. We ordered 3 seafood items to share, all of which come with the same side- a small salad. Otherwise, the fish was simply pan seared (halibut and salmon filets) or baked (branzino). Essentially, no seasoning or garnish other than salt and pepper. The branzino was fine, nothing special. The halibut was also fine, pretty plain, and the salmon was not fresh. It tasted fishy and we couldn't finish it. We ordered 2 side dishes- pea pods with mushrooms, which were good but small (4" square plate), and the green beans which were okay but cold. We mentioned the bad salmon that we didn't finish to the waitress when she picked up the plate, but she didn't say anything or offer any compensation. We were disappointed, as we always found this restaurant to be inventive and reliable in the past. We will not return.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed everything about our experience. Our waitress was so friendly and knowledgeable. The food was wonderful we got oysters, sunchokes, bread with tapenade, gnocchi, and the spaghetti. We ate way to much because it was so good!
We will be back!
Let's get the one negative out of the way so we can get to the terrific: the music is too loud--which is at odds with the comfortable and quietly attractive, spacious layout and look of the dining area itself. The food is delicious and unpretentious, with serving sizes that fit nicely in the space between too much, on one hand, and miniscule on the other. Prices are moderate and standard. The serving staff was...perfect (an adjective I rarely use): Friendly, competent and playful without ever becoming intrusive. (Our waiter was cute, too.) Oh, yeah, they make a killer Manhattan. Go...
We had an awesome experience at Anchovies and Olives! Great ambiance and atmosphere, and great food and service. The fried oysters and the crudo were wonderful. The pastas were even better. We really enjoyed the branzino (served whole). The service was excellent. Everyone was knowledgeable and very focused on making sure we had a great experience. We will certainly come back next time we are in town.
Very good food overall except for large bits of shell in one of the oysters--this really shouldn't happen in an upscale seafood place. Attentive service. The one minor gripe continues to be AWFUL music. It's loud and jarring and obtrusive and does not fit either the food or atmosphere of this restaurant!
Absolutely AMAZING. We arrived way early to our reservation and the staff made sure we were comfortable and even seated us 30 minutes early! The food was amazing! So many options, they were all so great and we loved how there were only two chefs in the open kitchen! It made the eating experience really personal! We are definitely going back!
This was a wonderful surprise to end a fun girls weekend... from the time we walked in the friendliness and knowledge that the staff had was so pleasant... the chefs dinner with wine pairing was by far an excellent choice and extremely reasonably priced. I was surprised that it wasn't rated higher on some sites. Really need to experience this spot! Made the walk from town well worth the exercise!!!!!
I would return to Anchovies & Olives. The food was good and the atmosphere was pleasant. The vegetables (ramps, potatoes, and mushrooms) were creatively seasoned and really good, and the panna cotta was refreshing and delicious. I dropped a star because the halibut was slightly dry (though tasty). A bit of sauce (such as aioli) on the side would have been good for that.
