The service was absolutely atrocious and the food took an hour and 40 minutes to arrive from the time we ordered.
We had our office holiday party here in December and everything was great. I’m really surprised that things have slipped so far for this restaurant in such a short period of time.
The fact that they did not offer to comp anything after such a disaster of waiting is beyond me!
Service was VERY slow!!
Right after I booked this place for dinner and invited friends, I clicked on some customer reviews and they were mostly negative. It was too late for me to cancel so I figured it would be OK since my husband was harping on about wanting to go there. The food way over-priced. They gave us gobs of kale salad and my entree barely had three shrimp in it. The other people said they liked the food, but they didn't eat much, so I have reason to believe otherwise. Our bill was over $280 for 4 people. Sure, some times we like to spurge, but I would highly recommend going somewhere else. The only thing which was in our favor was that there were few people dining and the noise level was low. On a separate note, our waited was totally fake trying to impress us with his Italian accent. It came across as insincere and he was rather theatrical.
Great food sat outside Trains went by. Ambulance went by. A little noisy in an otherwise great night
One world fabulous great happy hours! Escargot great and baby back ribs cooked perfect.
Excellent food well prepared a block off Atlantic Avenue. Quiet outside patio dining. Appetizers and main courses all were delicious as was the fresh bread.
Everything was the best as in the past. Just great Service/Food Love the way they remodeled the restaurant.
Great food and service. Nice selection of wines. The patio was great. Al-in-all a wonderful night!
It was great food and service was wonderful
I always love this restaurant. My food was most excellent. I did choose to sit outside which was my only issue. Too many trains went by. However, it didn't spoil the dinner. For me, I will eat inside next time.
The Best Food ! I️ loved that all the servers wore big smiles
Food and service was so nice. Our waiter was very attentive. We will return
Great food. Rustic modern design best burger I ever had with glass of goldeneye Pinot noir excellent chocolate cake and creamy espresso like in Italy I will be back
Absolutely love this place. Went to Olio with friends and family and had a great time! Started with shrimp cocktail, dumplings, and caprese salad - all amazing. I had the seared tuna, and HIGHLY recommend it. Every employee that passed us was friendly and happy, as always. We opened some wine and had cocktails as well. Stayed on the outdoor patio a while, and will definitely continue to come here.
Server was great .. $45 dollar
Steak that was ordered Rare came out Med Well.. very disappointing ...
Ate at the bar and enjoyed a great happy hour before dinner. Fantastic.
The food was fabulous but took a long time to come out of the kitchen. Inside was very loud but outside on the patio was a lovely place for a leisurely date night dinner. It’s off the ave so it’s a little calmer and there’s not a million people walking by. Our server Michael was FABULOUS and really made the night great.
Noise level required shouting across the table which wobbled all night!
The noise was deafening. Could not hear my table mate. Calamari cold. Rise with duck cold Table crowded. Noise was beyond description
Second time here & second chance was no better. We chalked the first try to underwhelming but worth a redo, but this was not the redemption we hoped for.
The place is crowded, no way around it. You’re flanked with other patrons on every side in cramped tables. The service is overbearing & unresponsive. And the dinning room is so loud that we couldn’t carry a normal conversation.
The food was okay, with the scallops being a hit, but the escargot being over cooked and the veal dish being mushy. Can’t comment on dessert because the waiter was seemingly trying to evacuate tables & abruptly dropped the check as dinner plates were cleared
Overall, I’m certain we won’t try again. It’s a shame as this place should be great.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for the hearing impaired. The noise level was not energetic it was torturous. That said, the food was okay, could have been great but who would know when they add about 10 more tables than the room should hold, and not one sound absorbing architectural feature in the whole place. Waiters bumped me about 100 times. Couldn't wait to get out of this place. Not going back, except maybe on a Monday in August when Delray Beach is deserted.
Noise was over the top, couldn't hear any of the conversation. Food was poor, over done and cool. Never going back.
Waiter didn’t seem experienced enough. My seared tuna was prepared earlier in the day and refrigerated, ice cold! Not what I would expect from a $30 plate!
Great little spot. Has parking in the back if you can get there before it’s all gone. Limited menu but good food.
The duck is fantastic
Wait staff was great ... I was a bit upset when my dish was served there were only 3 shrimp .. it was an expansive dish ... our waiter was great and took care of it ... with a smile !!
It was delicious!! I will go back again!
Although the food was very good, I'm not sure I would return. The noise level was so loud that we couldn't hear each other talk. We found that to be very annoying. I was disappointed because the food really was delicious. I guess if the weather was ok we could always sit outside. I'm assuming that would be better. There's seating at the bar as well but I don't like to eat at the bar.
Love the decor, wait staff is great, and the roast duck is wonderful. Just really noisy.......
I was totally impressed! The service was outstanding , and the food was superior. This is one of the best restaurants in Delray Beach, and I will be back with friends and recommend it to my friends. It had innovative small plates and fabulous fish.
We were seated quickly on a Saturday evening as per our reservation--2 couples. Parking was a challenge.
The atmosphere was pleasant and very attractive. Unfortunately a table of 8 with one very very loud talker was seated next to us in an otherwise empty side dining room--Just one of those things. The waiter was competent although he introduced speacials without stating prices, something I dislike intensely. The wine prices were exorbitant for both bottles and glasses. The food was tasty although our waiter gave us an unnecessary heads up that they were out of duck and the owner was calling another restaurant of his to see if he could get the duck there. He could and it arrived in timely fashion without a wait so we didn't understand his warning. We shared salads that were not split in the kitchen. There was no salt and pepper on the table until we requested it. The bread was excellent.
Entrees were good but not deserving of the high prices. The evening was fine but not exceptional and not worth the $100+ price per couple for only one drink order, no appetizers, shared salads, and no dessert and coffee.
We've eaten at Olio's about 5 times now and have enjoyed every visit. We particularly like the bar tender John who always doers an outstanding job of caring for us.
We had a very enjoyable dinner at Olio. The godfather flatbread is amazing! Service was friendly and accommodating. The house bread is also very good. My only complaint was our wines by the glass were not from a fresh bottle. When charging full price, reatauarnts need to open fresh bottles every night.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience at Olio. The filet were delicious and cooked perfectly. The Caesar Salad was yummy as was the Calamari. The Escargot appetizer was OUTSTANDING. The wine list had many reasonably priced choices. Looking forward to returning to Olio.
Took elderly parents and was so pleased when they honored the reservation time. Nice table, plenty of room and not tooo noisy which was great, although it was sunday night at 7. Food was good but not great for price. Given that it was DelRay beach in season, enjoyed the meal and would go back.
This was one of our worst experiences eating in downtown Delray...from not having the bottle of wine we ordered to waiting over an hour for our main course which was cold and only 4 of 6 entrees were served. The meat sauce lacked meat. When asking to see the manager he said sorry and walked away. Eventually the waiter offered us dessert. Too little too late! Overall a terrible evening!
Great food and they were able to accommodate us on short notice. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for good food and a nice atmosphere in the Delray Beach area.
Are you kidding?? Olio is a "FIND"! ... starting with champagne and caviar (which is hard to find at all in Delray Beach, especially choices of champagne) .... the menu was FANTASTIC and everything tasted very good. Best carpaccio and French Onion Soup I everrr had!! I will be back weekly!
Food very good. Flatbread quite tasty. Pappardelle pasta and shrimp plentiful. Lots shrimp. Pasta cooked just right.
Server rude. Angry we already had drinks. Threw silverware on table. Angry we were splitting dishes and said"we don't split dishes, you'll have to do yourself" . Brought most meal at once and when I complained, no apology.
Not one "thank you" all night.
Brought wrong check at end of evening and argued I was wrong.
I told him was lousy service.
His answer was it was New Years Eve.
Again, no thank you or apology
The food was delicious, and the service was excellent. I love the location just off of Atlantic. We will certainly be returning customers.
The rack of lamb was excellent! The heated outside terrace was nice!
