Few time we have been to this restaurant, and we went with high expectations - which were exceeded on all fronts. Food - could not have been better. Wine list - excellent. Service - first class. Ambience - great atmosphere. Nothing else to say really.

Two orders of baby ribs were too salty. Filet was overcooked. Spaghetti with white clam sauce had no flavor. Scallops were excellent but for five medium at $37.00 they certainly should be. The waiter was pleasant and very attentive.

Loved the food and service. Unfortunately, the restaurant is located in close proximity to railroad and trains sped by frequently during the meal. We were eating outside and the train noise was annoying. Otherwise, quite enjoyable.

Waitress was nice & friendly food out of the kitchen was very slow. It was VERY noisy as in you couldn’t hear your guests at the table. Food was tasty cocktails were not made per the menu. Beautiful restaurant but would not be in my top 10 for Delray.

Food was good but huge pasta dishes in order to justify way too high prices . Place was mostly empty on a Thursday night in high season yet the service was incredibly slow . Large wine list but again unreasonably high prices. Not good value for the money overall.

Last night we had one of our worst dining experiences ever. We were seated on the terrace on a beautiful night when two loud drunk customers began shouting at us and the table next to us. No one from the restaurant did anything. We had to ask to be moved inside and the drunk patrons began screaming at us and calling us liberals and Jews and said they would see us in line at Auschwitz. The restaurant did nothing. As they were leaving the drunks came inside to scream at us. The people from the other table came inside, too, but were hidden in the wine room. No one called the police or did anything to alleviate the situation. I will never go to Olio again. If they want this kind of establishment, they can have it. Oh, and they were out of decaf coffee......

Service wasn’t so good. Think they were overwhelmed because of St Patrick’s day. There was only on waitress for all the outside tables. Food made up for the not so good service. At the end had to go myself to look for the waitress and give her my payment. Don’t think we’ll be back.

The food was excellent. Olio is a block off of Atlantic Ave which keeps the noise level down but still a great location. Our waiter was not the most attentive. Will definitely book again and assume our waiter was having a difficult night.

Food was just okay. Wait service was also just ok but the bar service was awful! Ordered a prickly pear cactus margarita and it came out without any prickly pear syrup. I told the waitress who said that it was made correctly. I took a sip and it was dreadful! About 2 minutes later the waitress came back with a shot glass full of prickly pear syrup apologizing because the bartender indeed had made it wrong. I refused and asked that it be sent back instead of me trying to mix it myself. I asked if this time they could make it frozen, to which she said they didn’t have any blenders to make frozen drinks. Seriously!! They offer a number of different margaritas and they can’t make them frozen?? I just said cancel the drink then. No apology, nothing.

We have eaten at Olio a few times and usually the food is pretty good. We recently brought a party of 13 people and had a bad experience, we were not rushing back.... we figured we would give it another shot with just 3 of us tonight.

They were not busy so we expected a good/fast experience. The service was beyond slow- we waited 30 mins for bread, my moms pasta was mush- and after 15 mins when the server finally came to see how we liked it, my mom mentioned how she asked for al-dente pasta and it was overcooked. The server said- sorry, i told them al-dente. How about offering to fix it!?

And the kicker....they allowed an entire table to chain smoke right next to us (and about 8 other tables) right next to the entrance of the restaraunt. Let's just say our experience (and all the other patrons) experience was ruined.

I can't believe they allowed a full table of smokers in an establishment with the amount of tables eating outside? I thought this was a restaurant- not a dive bar!

We asked for the check as I told server, we could NOT take the smell of cigarettes and the server said- do you want to move tables?

How about you move the smokers to the street! Bad service, long waits, smoke, overcooked pasta... SAD TO SAY- BUT WE WONT BE COMING BACK TO THIS PLACE. Sucks- because especially in season it's nice to eat "off the ave". Here's a tip- remember that you are in the service industry. If you dont like it- find a new career.
