This was our 2nd visit. Our first visit was outstanding so we decided to bring our friends. We wanted to sit outside and the music was too loud and not appropriate for that time of evening. We therefore had to sit inside at a table in the front for 4. The restaurant was not busy yet they sat another couple right on top of us - they listened to our every conversation and it was very uncomfortable. On top of that the service was horrible. Three of us received our appetizers and one was not delivered until we had finished our appetizers (calamari). The waiter was not attentive at all - such a disappointment. The food was good. I will not come back to the restaurant.

The meals were very expensive for what was given. Nothing special about the food for the expense of $75.00 per person with a drink. Meal was not described appropriately. Veal piccata was breaded which was not mentioned in the menu. Pasta was limp. Noise level was so high you could not carry on a conversation.
Wait staff were not very attentive and un-interested when we said the piccata was a problem being breaded for a gluten issue.
Never asked if we wanted dessert or coffee or tea after our meal.
Would not return. So contrary to what was advertised in our local Delray Magazine as a nice quiet restaurant off the Avenue.

Very nicely appointed restaurant just off Atlantic where many restaurants vie for business. Its a tad quieter. You can sit in or out depending on weather and preference. Menu was very nice, complete and offered enough diversity. Meals were well cooked and healthy. Server was very friendly and knowledgable. We can recommend this establishment.

Enjoyed dinner here several time previously. Really missed the mark this time.
Service was abysmal. Only 5 tables in the dining room were occupied yet it was a full 30 minutes between courses.
Octopus was cold, mussels portion was small with five not opening.
Server asked for our entree order while holding all our appetizer plates. One person asked for the rice to be held in their curried shrimp. It didn't happen.
Overall a real disappointing evening

Meal was expensive but all 3 entrees, plus appetizers, & deserts were all delicious. We will go back for special occasions. It's a bit too pricey for every-day dining for us. The service was very good.

I made a rsvp. for 7:00 pm and they asked me if I wanted to sit in the inside or the outside. when I got there, I was told a wedding had reserved the entire inside and there was only outside seating. I was disappointed. they should have told me when I made the rsvp. However the food was excellent.

Bread was great, and the server was appropriately attentive. Outdoor dining venue was also very nice. However both of our entries were weak. My Maui Maui was very dry and my wife's pasta was bland. With so many restaurant options in Delray, we will not be back. I don't doubt that some of the only other entrées may be excellent.

The best service staff in Delray! Always accommodating and impeccable service, especially at the bar. We were a party of 6 and ended up at the bar after dinner to watch the final half of a March Madness game and they stayed open late just so we could finish watching the game! Good food, great drinks and awesome atmosphere! Highly recommend!

Olio is a pretty restaurant with a nice bar and lots of outdoor seating. It is a few blocks off the Avenue but close enough.

Menu has changed and is limited...what is on the menu is good.

Service is relatively slow and not that attentive. Hope they expand the menu as the kitchen is worthy.

Lamb wasn't cooked had to be sent back to kitchen asked to season it as well since chef hadn't done that. Returned lamb after rest of table finished their meals (again it wasn't cooked so it took awhile)returned with no seasoning. No apologies but wanted to bus table since others were done. Fish was so heavily seasoned that you needed to drink water with every bite to swallow. Ran out of regular coffee told us to order Cappuccino instead of brewing more.

The menu is good -- light and healthy entrees. The restaurant in located a couple of blocks from Atlantic Avenue in Delray which is a positive on very crowded weekend evenings. We sat outside, next to the bar. We ordered pork dumplings for our appetizer and they were very good. We also ordered a Chardonney that was also very good. We had to wait a very long time for our entrees (30+ minutes) and, without a reasonable explanation, for a refill for our wine. The salmon entree was good but my duck was overcooked.

I have never written a bad review about anything. This was our second visit to Olio. Our first dinner, 3 weeks ago, was wonderful so we brought friends visiting for the day. Our waitress was very loud, inappropriately chatty and nosy about our food choices. It took 1 1/2 hours for our meals to be served and they were cold. We did not say anything to the waitress because we did not want to deal with her more than we had to or wait longer for our dinners. This could have been an off night, but would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

 (Baltimore)·Dined on February 18, 2017

Our service was deplorable. Our table was in a horrible location also. I spoke to 2 other ladies in line at the rest room (that"s another issue there was only one ladies room ) they both were experiencing the same slow service. Start to finish, slow coming to table, slow getting water, then taking drink order, slow service from the bar, same with appetizer and entrees. Not a fun evening for $140 for 2.

Nice atmosphere though it is loud when crowded. Food was good at reasonable price. Good location off the main Atlantic Ave so avoids the crowds. If you are seated at a table under the overhead wine storage, you can be disturbed by employees as they search and retrieve bottles. Annoying!

We were warmly welcomed by two veterans servers from the area. We grabbed drinks at the bar first and then headed to our great table outside. Aleena made sure as soon as we sat down we were attended to.
Our food came out on a timely basis and it was hot. Quite a variety around the table of 6 of us...and everyone loved their meals. There was salmon, mahi, cajun shrimp, veal piccata and linguine with clams that we had ordered with a spicy fra diablo sauce. very pleased and will be back v soon

Our reservation was for 7:45 and we were seating around 8:35 but didn't have anyone come to take our order until 9pm. The waitress said the restaurant was very busy and she was very nice but service was super slow and besides our waitress no one seemed to care.
Before we were escorted to our table we had sat at the bar 10-15 min before the bartender came to ask us what we wanted to drink.
Food was okay, not as good as the 1st time I had been to Oilio

What a disappointment! Have been to Olio before and loved it but then they renovated. Our waitress was sweet but seemed overwhelmed. It was a chore to get pepper! When our food was delivered she dropped one of the dishes! They served the three that were ready but it took over 20 minutes to get the other one!!! She apologized but did not offer to do anything for the delay. She tried to clean up the table before my husband was half way finished ! We asked for coffee but they only had espresso or cappuccino. I have never been at a restaurant where you could not have coffee. When I complained to the manager he shrugged his shoulders and told me not to tip the waitress! There was also only one bathroom for the women and one for men... not nearly enough. The bathroom was also in the hall where the servers had to walk; no wonder a dish got dropped.
I will never go back...... expensive and not worth the aggravation.

We ate at Olio with a party of six on a Monday night so it was relatively quiet. The inside was kind of cool looking but we opted to eat outdoors as it was a beautiful night. Cocktails were well made and came out in a timely manner. Food was good both my wife and I had fish, Tuna and Mahi and both were very fresh and well cooked. Not sure what everyone else had in the party but we universally thought the experience was good.

A bit on the expensive side, but what isn't in Delray, overall a satisfactory dining experience.
