Mediterranean
Olive & Ivy brings a bustling Mediterranean neighborhood market to the Scottsdale Waterfront. You’ll find fresh baked bread, handmade pasta, rich espresso, and an array of sandwiches and salads. That’s not all – guests can choose from over 45 wines by the glass. When you dine under the shady trees on the massive patio you’ll feel like you’re in southern France, not southern Scottsdale.

Brought foodie prospects in for lunch...first time visitor and will definitely be back soon.

Hoped to get outdoor seating, near the canal, but was a 20minute wait, so dined indoor.

Started w/bacon wrapped date appetizers and most had Mediterranean salad w/grilled chicken, while I substituted gyro meat...everyone enjoyed that meal, service was outstanding and Esvin was very attentive.

We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and had a great time! Our server, Richard, was excellent and very attentive. He gave us great recommendations, was constantly checking on us, and brought out a wonderful dessert to celebrate the occasion. We will definitely go back and I recommend you try the lasagna and ask for Richard!

Everything was great, as usual, except for my eggs. I ordered “egg Benedict “. I love my yolk runny but I like the whites to be cooked. These whites were barley opaque. I did not complain, perhaps I should have, but everything else’s was so great. We WILL return.

Took a fellow Restuarant owner from Texas. We had cocktails and the braised short rib meat flatbread with gorganzola. That was a hit for everyone. Second course for one of my diners was the lasagna dish. Tasty but the garlic toast was lacking flavor. The other 2 of us ordered the sea bass which was a bit on the fishey side. I would not recommend it. The service on the patio was excellent and it is quieter outside. We left around 630 and the Restuarant was on a wait list of up to 1 hour. My Texas guest enjoyed al fresco dining as was all other patio diners. Nice to get outside.

Literally one of my favorite restaurants and my waitress did not come back once. Not to refill drinks or our wine glasses, not to check in after we received our food, not even for the bill. Super disappointing.

I would have given a better rating if the ladies manning the reception desk were pleasant, listen to the customer, remembers a cistomers preferences and simply were not stuck up. The food is very good, if not excellant and the waiters outside and thier manager were friendly, engaging, even knoweledgeable with wine pairings. Really a nice meal. The girls at the front desk just ruined the otherwise excellant experience, which unfortunatley was the first impression.

Maybe it was just an off night. Food was over cooked, waiter was rude. I chose the resturant based on yelp, open table reviews, I will give it a second chance but not sure if even on a good day it would be a 4.8 rated restaurant.

We were getting together with another couple to share a meal and conversation. Only problem was that the restaurant - and then the DJ were SO LOUD that we could not carry on any kind of conversation at our table. Totally ruined our experience.

Both the service and the food were top notch but the overall experience was a disaster. You should warn people when they make reservations that if they want to talk at their table, they should go somewhere else.

My visit to Olive & Ivy was for an employee birthday lunch chosen by my staff member.
Both of us had been to your establishment many times. One item we both chose was the bacon wrapped dates! Excellent!!! He had never been to your Camelback facility and was delighted to visit it.
The service was great. Thanks for making it special for him.

The hummus was incredible, and the staff friendly for the most part. There was a mixup on my reservation, where the time I selected was when they were closing. However, the staff adjusted and still seated me so I don't have to go to bed hungry. I enjoyed it, overall.

Approx 10 min from being seated to first server arriving, who was not actually our server. When our server did arrive he said “have you decided?” Without even welcoming us or introducing himself. Felt very impersonal. Poor experience.
