Great and professional servers and greeters. The food is flavorful and portions are filling. Great space either on the patio or inside. We go there once a month and Sunday brunch is our favorite. Great Mimosa's and Bellinis!

Wonderful patio. Will go back but I don’t recommend the Chef’s Market Plate. Overpriced for what I received. Asparagus was skinny & burnt, blue cheese only a one inch cube. Small cup of white gelatinous substance I was unable to identify, might have been a cheese. Half the plate was a huge pile of bread, not great for a lo-carb diet. Have had better elsewhere for less.

Went for a birthday celebration. Waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions. Our food took a while and the waiter continually checked in and apologized for the wait, even bringing us extra bread in the mean time. Food was excellent and we enjoyed sitting out on the patio.

Took my girlfriend here for the first time. They sat us on the patio. After 10 minutes no one had come by, there were a few servers waiting on other tables on the patio but no one came to us. Finally I said “excuse me” to a server walking by and we finally got helped. We asked for two iced teas with lemon and waters, got the ice tea without the lemons. Our actual server came by and apologized about the delay as it was a shift transition so I’m assuming the hostess didn’t tell her she got sat a table. We gave her our order and then after a while she never came back with the house bread and pesto. So again I asked another server for it. Finally got that and our food, she checked on us which was nice. She was super nice and gave us some ice tea to go.

The manager comped our iced teas for waiting so long for someone to greet us. Very nice of them to do that for us. Overall the experience was okay and not impressive like the previous times I’ve been there. I will still come here though because they did try to rectify the situation, which was appreciated!

Arrived for a 3pm reservation for a Mother’s Day celebration. Was told once arrived that the lunch/brunch menu was not available, was then provided with a dinner menu and that there was only 2 items available on this menu, after reviewing this menu was told that, no this menu is not available either and then provided with another menu, however could only get a flatbread or salad from this menu. After 4 trips to the kitchen the waiter then said they would be able to provide a hamburger in addition to the flatbread and salad options. 4 of the 6 people at the table finally said, “just give me a burger”. Certainly could have received that at many better burger establishments than yours. I have dined at your facility prior and enjoyed the experience, which is the reason I booked the reservation. Will probably find other establishments for future needs. Regards

This is one of my go to places for special occasions. Only problem is the service is sub-standard on some special occasions. This Mothers day was one of those. Too many people and not enough servers. This is a trend I have been seeing at most restaurants lately. Yet they expect a 20% tip. Hummmmmm?

I was disappointed in this visit. Perhaps because it was Mother's Day and busy, the food was having to come out faster and in larger volume. I ordered one of the featured Mother's Day items, the crab benedict and it was just okay, a little on the cold side and Hollandaise sauce lacking in flavor. My daughter had the same dish and felt the same. The bread at the beginning was amazing, as well as the pesto sauce that accompanied it. That was the best part of the meal. Still, we had a great spot on the patio outside next to the waterfront as a result of a reservation made well in advance. I loved this location when I came last, and the food then was amazing. I would call this a one off.

Only service did not get a five star rating. The service was slow and non-attentive. I would have loved to have gotten a refill on my coffee! and waiting for the bill was too time consuming.This is one of my favorite restaurants in Scottsdale and the food and atmosphere were excellent as usual!

We love this place and have been back many times. We prefer the patio because it is very noisy inside and the patio is very tranquil and conducive to conversation. Unfortunately on this trip even though we had requested the patio seating it was not available ( they seat guest on the patio in the order the reservation was made and we only made the reservation a day ahead) .
FYI if you want a patio table especially on the weekend make your reservation and request at least a week ahead of time.

Ordered a chopped chicken salad. It arrived with no chicken. Took the waitress a long time to come back and check on us. When I told her my salad had no chicken she took my salad back and told the manager I complained I didn't get enough chicken? Manager came to our table and asked if I didn't get enough chicken. Uh no I got NO chicken. He doubted me and I had to show him that in fact there was zero pieces of chicken in my bowl. It was embarrassing that they even thought I had eaten the pieces out of my salad and was asking for more.

We asked to sit on patio, but it was closed due to rain. Because we were meeting to talk about something, I asked for a quit area if possible. Hostess was very accommodating and placed us in one of their private dining room. It was great!

Well located in Scottsdale right across from Nordstrom parking. We were seated immediately and the service was prompt and efficient. Food was great from a varied menu. The only drawback was the noise level (lots and lots of customers). We were meeting with a financial advisor but just for fun, great food and great service, give it a go for sure.

Great food. Service was spotty and all of the chairs on the patio dining area were covered in bird droppings. Be sure to wear old cloths if dining out of doors! The wait staff didn't quite grasp the concept of cleaning off chairs for patrons.

Very disappointed, when I made our reservation I indicated we were celebrating our anniversary that was not acknowledge.So tell me why ask? I don't get it. So to drive all the way out to Scottsdale, was disappointing on our special day. Just seemed they wanted to just turn tables. The food was just so-so. I heard about the great bread and pesto. That was not even offered until our meal was to be served. But she sure pushed the bruschetta just to run up the tab that was not that good. Just plain disappointed, I though this place had it going on. Never seen lasagna served in a bowl in pieces, and my wife's Cantalini was drowning in some sauce. The noise level was a bit much for me at 5 o'clock.

We ordered the Italian flatbread which was very good. Also sampled the bruschetta. The one item they have kept at the restaurant is the wonderful focaccia they bring to the table with a basil pesto. It is consistently good.
The Salmon Caesar salad was also a hit. The atmosphere is so nice and relaxing. The retractable doors that open up to the patio has the feel of being on the patio, but still inside. Had a great table!!

We met friends from out of town there for dinner. We had not been to Olive & Ivy for a while. Had a great window side table to enjoy the view but avoid the wind that was blowing that night.
Our waitress and the chef were nice enough to substitute one of the sides offered with another we preferred. So accommodating of them.
Food, service, ambiance...and white sangria...all wonderful.
Oh, and parking couldn’t be more convenient. We are in Gilbert now with tons of choices of restaurants, but we will be back.

Great service. Waiter was excellent and on top of things. Pesto and focaccia is delicious. Bellinis are great. I ordered the gyro and it was pretty bad. Had to go to a legitimate Greek restaurant the next day to get a good one. Friends had breakfast burritos and said they were good. Wife says her potatoes were excellent and eggs and bacon were great as well. I would go back.
