No hostess, was asked to sit at a dirty table. Bartenders helped out and we sat at a high top in the bar area. Online menu is out of date...the only saving grace was the bartender.

The restaurant was very crowded so we expected normal than usual slow service. What we did not expect was 1 hour and 45 minutes to get our dinner. The waitress was very inattentive but when I stood up and spoke with the manager we finally got our food which was quite good.

However due to the poor service we will not return to Olios.

The food and drink were delicious. My ahi tuna portion was overly generous. The mussel first course was prepared perfectly in a perfect broth.

Great ambience. Service was quite slow. I also noticed an empty table being bussed adjacent to us while we clearly had a table full of dirty plates ready to be removed. Sea bass was out of this world delicious. Salad and shrimp were very fresh tasting. Scallops were average at best. The carrot cake was average at best. I expected more from a restaurant who charges these kinds of prices.

Well, gave this place a second chance. Big mistake! One hour and 30 minutes to get appetizers spoke to the manager about it and he said he would fix it (whatever that means) but he was busy. By the way, it was Wednesday night and the restaurant was more than half empty. Stay away, the service here is beyond poor. Not worth it!!!

Service we unbelievably slow. We waited for 20 mins just to get our drinks. Then the food took forever to come out as well. Everything looked like it had been sitting. Food was awful. Calamari was actually fishy. Ravioli was literally dowsed in tomato sauce out of the can. Such a shame bc it’s a cute ambiance. Puzzling how they got all these good reviews. They must pay for them. Go elsewhere.

This was one of the very best dinners we have ever had, in every way. We sat on the outdoor porch which was great and socially distanced; our waitress was wonderful with great suggestions, I had a perfect Old Fashioned and wine and my husband had beer and all the drinks were great. The dumpling appetizer is amazing; I had blackened 12 spice mahi mahi (delicious) and my husband had the veal piccata which you could cut with a fork it was so tender. We can't wait to go back. Highly, highly recommend it.

Horrible Service!!!! Food is decent but the service at Olio is pathetic, and not just the waitress. Let me start by saying that when I was in college I was a writer in an upscale restaurant, so I can appreciate what serving staff go through. I'll start with the host. We arrived right on time for our 7:30 reservation, and waited at the host station for a few minutes, host was not there. A few waiters went by but did not say a word. Eventually a gentleman said "can I help you" as he walked by. Not "hello, welcome to Olio, etc". He seemed bother by us being there. I gave him my name and he walked away. When he came back a few minutes later, I mentioned that we wanted a table outside, his response was "I know, I have your name" and walked away. When we were seated and the waitress came to our table and asked for our drink order, my wife and guests were still deciding what they wanted, and I said I knew what I wanted, but the waitress responded by saying that she would come back when everyone was ready and left. When we were ordering dinner, one of my guests started to ask if the chef could... but the waitress didn't wait for the question and responded by saying "not tonight, we have 150 reservations" and cut him off. Toward the end of our meal, one of the staff approached the table while carrying dirty dishes from another table to ask if we were finished, one of us said yes, so he put the dirty dishes (with a napkin from the other table over our dishes on the table to carry them all away; I was still eating when that occurred. A minute later he came back to clear the rest of the table while I was still eating. It felt like they were pushing us out, even though we were only there for an hour and there were plenty of empty (dirty) tables around. Bottom line the service at Olio is extremely poor at all levels. Never going back.

took 20 minutes to get our apps then meal came quick. Waiter was busy so disappeared . Asked for a cappuccino after dinner and 20 mins later still did not come and was told bartender was busy. He brought check wanting to get rid of us. Food was decent but don't go on a weekend or you will get no service and wait long. Must be a problem with kitchen for everything to take long amounts of time . Our friends arrived half hr before us and they got their app when we were seated which is ridiculous.

The food was amazing and the wine selection is outstanding. The service was definitely not what it usually is when we have been there in the past. The waitress was definitely busy and trying to manage a lot. We felt rushed to make our choices. She seemed bothered and overwhelmed.

We have driven by this place countless times and thought it would be a wonderful night for my birthday dinner. Sat outside- wasn't busy and ordered our drinks. Waited longer than it should of been and only one came out. Waited for the other one to show.. NO Show- had to ask again for it and when my husband tried it - he said "that is not an old fashion". Appetizer was Caprese which was an old tomato- soft and squishy and the bread was so hard and impossible to chew. Food was meh- service was extremely slow and we had to raise our hand to catch her anytime we needed anything. Very Disappointed in that place. The other reviews of this place is spot on but it doesn't seem to have changed much so hey... do your research before you come and if you roll the dice- then good luck to ya.
