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.

I have never had a bad meal or poor service but the DJ is TOO LOUD!! The song choices were poor at best. We finally ended up in a small room & were able to talk to each other.

Also, too many employees grazing on the food line without washing their prior to serving food to tables.

This restaurant was so noisy my ears hurt. I could not hear any of my dinner companions, and I quickly tired of yelling at them. Our server was lackadaisical at best. Food was fine, but the evening was not worth the effort it took us to get there.

The food and service is always excellent! Wonderful menu and food quality. Best Pastrami I've since living in Chicago. That said, I wish the large room were divided a bit into smaller rooms or areas. The noise overwhelming and distracting. I would never do a business lunch Olive & Ivy - but do enjoy lunches with friends when the conversation is casual and one doesn't mind being overheard - and having to speak over other table chatter.

Our server, Jill, was just fantastic! I met up with my partner’s parents (who traveled from Canada), and my co-founders - and from both sides, I was complimented several times on my restaurant choice. Great, reasonably priced wine list and excellent food. Still - Jill’s service was the highlight!

I took friends for lunch and we all wore black clothing. My guests were upset that we were not offered black napkins. One lady had bruschetta and said one was very spicy. On the other hand, I had a Rueben to die for. I guess you can’t win them all. The peanut butter pudding was delicious!

We are regulars here at Olive and Ivy and in a city with numerous options to choose from, we always come back here repeatedly. Don’t change a thing!!

The lively environment in the bar is fun, and the patio is very nice. It's a good spot for a drink and an appetizer and it's also a good spot for lunch on the patio. Dinner, however, is not that great. The menu does not have many options, and they are all pretty ordinary. Service is ok.

Meeting up for a friends weekend. Online would only accommodate up to 6 people, but when we called to tell them we were going to make two reservations of 6 they put us all together without issue and were great with a large group! Highly recommend their cocktails too!!

While sitting there with my family being amazed about everything, I said; "If I ever rated any other restaurant all 5 stars, I'm not sure why." High ratings. We literally wanted to lick every plate we ate clean. We had the meatballs, veal ravioli and best pesto we've ever eaten. We order 2! Hands down, top notch quality food, perfectly prepared and wonderfully balanced flavors. The pasta was so fresh! The ambiance and decor drew me in. The meal sealed the deal. The bathrooms are impressive and the two sided bar is super cool.

New Year’s Day : my only input is that it would have been nice if they had offered their weekend “brunch” items like larger mimosas since it was a holiday. Holidays should have weekend themes or better, not regular lunch items
