This is a great place to have a enjoyable meal. We had drinks and appetizers in one area (lounge) so that we could relax and socialize before adjourning to the dinner table. Our servers were excellent and very accommodating. Service was prompt and delivered professionally. The food was delicious and very satisfying. Will definitely continue dining at Olio!
Met up with friends from Florida who were meeting another guest at the airport. Location was perfect. The service and the food were both excellent. Reasonable pricing and we were not rushed during our 3 hour lunch .
Stood at front desk for 15 mins and we're then informed by 3 people that the kitchen closed in 45 mins. Got a glass of wine and waited another 20 mins and told again we didn't have much time. We decided to leave as they obviously didn't need or want the business
This was my first time going there and I was totally amazed, it was for our monthly ladies get together and it was perfect.
The food was amazing, we were trying each others meals and none of us were disappointed.
The service was fantastic and the ambiance peaceful.
Yes I would tell anyone about this place and yes I will be returning.
Our reservation was for 6.15pm but we were early and relaxed with drinks and appetizers in the lounge area. No one rushed us to our table which gave us time to enjoy the ambience as well as relax after a busy day. The service provided was excellent and the food was delicious. The spaghetti Bolognese was excellent as were the other dishes that we ordered. All in all, a restaurant I would definitely visit again.
I had a wonderful time. Good and service was great
I came up to Toronto with two of my employees on their first business trip ever. We were in meetings all day and then had to fight traffic in the rain to find the place. I was so happy to see the restaurant had a very relaxing, bright and comfortable atmosphere. Too bad the service was ho hum...our waitress was very low energy. We were never given refills on our water. She delivered our food and walked away. We were never asked if we needed anything else. A table of 8 people came in and we were forgotten. It was almost if we had to flag her down to get any service. ugh....normally, I wouldn't care and get it that you can't control the service necessarily. People vary, but the food was just... okay. nothing to write home about.
We waited more than 15 minutes for a drink order. I ordered a pasta with shrimp and did not receive the shrimp. Food was good but the service was less than stellar especially considering that the restaurant was not that busy.
Great steaks and excellent olive tapas. Loved the crab cakes as well!
We sat in the lounge because there were some large groups in the dining area and it was quite noisy .
The food was delicious , the service was great and very friendly .
Thanks for the great time to all staff
I would absolutely not recommend Olio. Everything was a disappointment from the ambiance to the staff and especially the food. This was a special occasion for myself and my fiancé, as we were celebrating the upcoming birth of out first child and this was our last little get away. I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and I was impressed and based on these reviews I booked this restaurant.
When we arrived the hostess had no idea what we were speaking about when I said we had made reservations, either way we were seated as the restaurant was completely empty on a Saturday night.
I ordered the sausage filled ravioli, it tasted like a pepperoni pizza. It was horrible. My fiancé had ordered the steak, it was hard as cardboard. It came with mash potatoes that tasted like they were from a box and the vegetables were bland.
This was by far the worst food experience I have ever had at a restaurant. We went back to our hotel and had to order in for dinner.
Very courteous and friendly service. Great place for lunch or dinner.
We chose the location based on geography. Six of us were meeting for Summerlicious dinner and this location is conveniently close to highways. The food was phenomenal. We all had different items and revelled in the beauty (and taste) of each dish. Considering the restaurant wasn't that busy we would have benefited from a little more attention from our server. Not bad service, but just the bare minimum. Would go back.
I enjoyed my lunch at Olio. Parking was a bit of an issue, so we were late for our reservation, but the staff was understanding and flexible. The decor seemed a little dated, but we liked that the tables were spaced far enough apart to be able to have our own conversation without overhearing those around us. The food was the star of the show. Salads were crisp with the right amount of dressing. The pasta was excellent, cooked perfectly with a wonderful creamy sauce. The portion sizes were good, not so much that you felt over stuffed. The tart was good, but we both felt it needed more filling as the lovely strawberry rhubarb flavour was lost under the cream topping. Service was well timed. Overall an enjoyable meal.
Usually I am not much for hotel restaurants but this is not like any other. This was the second time we went here during summerlicious but we will likely go back even after it is over.
Delicious food! Went for the summerlicious event, and had a great experience.
The restaurant was very quiet - no guests. Also could not locate the reservation, although that was not a problem given the lack of customers this Friday evening. Food was good and service fine.
There had been a lot of noise from a pool table area located nearby this was not evident on the current occasion.
The food was very good. A party of four people and we all thoroughly enjoyed what we ordered. We were there for a holiday lunch, and were all pleasantly surprised with the food quality. However, the service was terrible. Two servers were confused about who was handling our table. They didn't approach us or take our order (or even give us menu's) until we had already been sitting for 10 minutes. The lady who ended up helping us never asked about how our lunch was, and then disappeared when we were finished so we had to wait for another 10 minutes until we got our bill. Overall it was good, but the service was so disorganized, impolite, and unprofessional that it added to the time we were there and also negatively impacted our experience.
My wife's meal was fine. I had the prime rib which was flavorful but the consistency was strange. Overall, it was ok but I was expecting more based on the reviews I had seen.
