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.

The food was really great which most of us had fish (sea bass and salmon) and the service was very good. It has a dark ambiance which I thought was a little dark, but would be great for date night.

Food is beyond excellent, fresh and well prepared. Portion size is huge. I’m not crazy about the split ambiance, is it a nice fashionable dinner place or a bar ?

I made a reservation for 3:00 on line. I got a call 45 minutes before we arrived saying they weren't serving any fish, meat or pasta dishes between 3:00 - 5:00. I wish we would have known that when we made the reservations. We were limited to appetizers and drinks. Was a little disappointed.

I have been here three times, twice for lunch and once for an anniversary dinner. All three times have been exceptional. The service is always good and food creative but tasteful. The seating options is also a big plus as sometimes we like to sit a bit more upscale inside while others on the patio. Looking forward to going back and trying the pastries but did have coffee and it was delicious. Kudos!

I gave an excellent score because I would return and I would recommend Olive and Ivy. I cannot say my dish was the best and that is a matter of opinion. The price was a tad high for the main courses but not so much that I would shy away from a return visit. Overall my experience was excellent.

While we waited for our table we sat at the bar and ordered drinks. The bartender explained getting hot tea will have to be ordered at the table since he has to go to the other 'bar/cafe' to get it. other than my hot tea Olive and Ivy is peachy. will go again.

Best meal I’ve had in a long time! We started out with the hummus plate, then for entrees we order the filet and sea bass...excellent. The waiter was great as well...attentive and friendly. Desert was fantastic...lemon cake.

The hostess DID NOT honor our open table reservation. We originally walked in at 845 and were told no table were available and that there was a 1.5 hour wait, we still put our name on the list. I then went on open table and found a reservation at 9pm and booked it. I then went to hostess desk and 9p and was told our table still will not be ready for 45 minutes. Very disappointed with The restaurant that they did not honor my 9p open table reservation. Worst of all, we were able to get our last minute and it was to celebrate a special anniversary

We loved the location. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We loved the Bruschetta and our salads. My husband had the pork tenderloins wrapped in bacon and they were very delicious. I had the sea bass. I found it to be just so-so. But the vegetables on the plate were delicious. Over all we were well pleased and would return.

The patio is the only area we will be seated in because the interior is obnoxiously loud. We go to a restaurant for the food first, but then conversation. I know the new trend is extreme loudness, but you outdo yourself.
Other than the noise I love olive and Ivy.

Food was very good but it needed more flavor. I had the filet. It was very good but it lacked something to put it over the top. The potatoes that came with it needed a little more seasoning.

We dined here Memorial Day and they were out of the Lasagne Bolognese which was a disappointment. Our meals were just okay and we had to ask our waiter to remove the 2 desserts since we hadn’t had any from our bill.
