Unbeatable setting. Food never disappoints. Egg burrito was delicious. Even in the heat sitting on the patio amidst the greenery and the misters was perfect. I never tire of this place!

What a fantastic restaurant! Love the creative offerings & yet the typical foods. We were seated by a window inside, but sadly the draperies were drawn, so couldn’t appreciate the view this time. This was a great start to our ladies day out! Thank you

Delish. Chopped salad and the panini looked great. The oil and basil served with bread was so fresh and I wanted more! Service was very good. Pretty noisy in there. They do a great business. We will return.

Amazing food!! We had the mozzarella and avocado bruschetta, Margherita flatbread for appetizers. My husband had the sweet potato cannelloni and I had the Filet. Everything was FANTASTIC! Service staff was fast, informative and positive. Our server was on top of it! By far, my favorite place to eat while visiting Scottsdale. We will definitely be returning!

This is my usual spot to have girls night and normally, it's really great but this Saturday night there was a DJ and it was SO LOUD we could hardly hear each other. It was extremely disappointing since we usually love having dinner here, the evening was not super enjoyable since we could barely carry on conversation without screaming across the table. This restaurant does not seem like the kind of place that needs a DJ pumping loud music out, it's a bit too high end for that vibe.

Food was not as good as it has been in past. Our service was very good. We were seated in a nice area and our server was attentive. We always enjoy going there because the restaurant is wonderfully located and always active. The menu is limited and needs to be updated.

Visited Phoenix and my wife and I have heard good things about this place. Large inside with high noise level which is fine as the place was alive with a Friday after work crowd.
Ordered the charcuterie platter which contained the usual with an outstanding Fig jam which was great. Wife ordered a small plate item, artichoke hearts with shrimp, delicious, she said. I tried a flatbread with sausage and spicy pepperoni which was good and very filling. Try the Peanut Butter Mousse, light and chocolatey GOOD!
Service was quick and food was served quickly.

Server was extremely slow and forgetful. Ordered another drink as we were finishing our salads and did not get it until we were almost finished with our entrees in spite of several assurances it was on its way. No offer to make any kind of adjustment. Server blamed being given too many tables and the bar being slow. Other tables we observed with different servers did not have the same problem.

The food was fabulous. We will definitely return upon our next visit to the area. Our server seemed a bit abrupt however. I can't really explain. She wasn't inattentive. She just had a slight edge to her.

We had a bachelorette party of 8 girls and had the best time brunching at Olive and Ivy! Perfect place to accommodate a larger group, and there is something for everyone in the menu. Huge shout out to our server Cameron who went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time. The food was good but the highlight was his service!!!!! Thanks, Cameron :)

We came here for our anniversary. Put the occasion in open table when booking. When our server came out the first thing he did was wish us a happy anniversary. Nothing but great service the entire time. Food was all excellent. You do pay a bit of a premium for the food, but it was all prepared skillfully.

We were very disappointed that the wine that my wife always orders at your restaurant was unavailable because of a problem with a dispensing? We were told that unless we purchased a whole bottle or at least three glasses she could not have any of the wine. For a restaurant that touts itself as excellent on service I was greatly disappointed whatever happened to the customer is always right? I would find it hard to believe that as busy as your restaurant was you couldn't sell two more glasses of that wine in the evening and let my wife have one. Also in this is a minor point but the pepper dispenser did not work properly on the table period for an upper class restaurants such as yours I expect everything to be just so.

I'm a fan other Fox concepts and knew I had to try Olive and Ivy when in Phoenix. I was not disappointed. The hummus was possibly the best I've ever had. The entrees were great as well. I loved the sweet potato cannelloni. Devine! The mule made with Figenza was AMAZING! I actually had to get a bottle before we returned to Texas where you cannot buy it.

Sat outside and had a very nice meal. Lamb meatballs and artichoke dip to start. I had a beet salad and sea bass. Others had scallops and the bacon wrapped pork loin. Everything was well prepared and tasty. The area is trendy for those not familiar with the area.

Food was okay, drinks weren’t good, too many birds outside but I guess that’s not the restaurant’s fault. My favorite part was the bread service with pesto.

This was my second time at the restaurant. First time was in February and the outside dining was great as was the food and service. Overall excellent. On Sunday I came to celebrate my friend's birthday at brunch. We felt rushed from the moment we sat down. After 30 minutes it felt like the server was ready for us to move on. Very disappointing. The food was good but not as hot as it should have been. Also, have to be honest, nothing was pretty about the presentation. My plate looked like it could have come from Dennys.
Overall pretty disappointed.

This restaurant never disappoints. We sat out on the patio on a lazy sunday midday with misters going. It is a beautiful setting. The bloody Mary's were delicious. My husband got a salad and it was delicious. I had the veggie egg scramble and a mocha. The coffee beverages are wonderful. Service was a bit slow but we were in no hurry and the setting was so beautiful.
