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.

Sat on the patio. Beautiful. Met a friend from out of town and we had a leisurely meal, weren’t rushed, great service. Love it!

Waiter service was great but hostess was not. We arrived at 9:10 for our 9:15 reservation. The hostess let us know it would be a few minutes which is understandable, I let her know we would be waiting it the seats outside and pointed where we would be. She said she would let us know when the table was ready. 9:25 came around and I went to check on the status, the hostess told me she texted me but I didn't respond?Would have been nice if she referenced the text messaging process when we initially spoke? She said she can't keep track of everyone, and that I should have been looking for the text? I was on a date, not going to be looking for texts that I wasn't aware of?

Nice menu. Food very good, reasonable value for money. But service was terrible. We waited a full 15 minutes before being offered a drink, water, etc..... 15 more minutes for a glass of wine. And another 25-30 minutes after ordering our entrees. I KNOW they were busy (? Wednesday night ?) - but c’mon guys, this is Scottsdale at the peak of tourist season. Get more wait staff!

The food is always delicious. However the service on this occasion was terrible. It took 30 minutes to get drinks and 40 more minutes to receive our entrees. Usually service is quick and delightful

For lunch service in particular, waiting nearly 10 minutes for a refill on iced tea and a glass of wine seemed too long. We felt our waiter had too many tables and couldn’t really give us good attention. Our fish entrees tasted bland, but the presentation and the cooking preparation were well executed. Unfortunately this time didn’t have the wow-factor , maybe next time will be better.

Not my first time here. Nor will it be my last. Had my granddaughter for her 10th birthday and she felt very special. The wait staff was exceptional. The food missed a beat, but not by much?

Had a great experience at olive and ivy on the Scottsdale waterfront Sunday. Fun, colorful atmosphere and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The food and service were very good.

We went to celebrate my mother’s 96th birthday and had just been to O & I the previous Sunday morning and had a great experience sitting on the patio with another couple. I asked for a outside table and didn’t get one which was frustrating but I understand it is first come first serve. Afterwards our server was just inattentive compared to others. One of our orders came with avocados on it that wasn’t mentioned in the menu and my friend is allergic to avocados so we had to return it. It took a good five minutes for our server to ask how are food was and at least another 10 minutes to get the meal replaced! It just spoiled the meal for everyone trying to wait. Finally after this we received a birthday treat with one plate and had to ask for more. After another 5 minutes they finally showed up without even a “sorry” mentioned. Anyway, overall it was a frustrating morning.

We always like Olive and Ivy for any occasion. Our dinner was after the art show at the Waterfront, so it was an easy place to walk to without having to park twice. Very nice.

Management was very accommodating to our guest, who ordered a pasta dish that had a texture she didn’t care for (the cheese in the dish made the pasta seem gummy). The management was kind enough to not charge her for the dish and even gave her a free desert. Can’t ask for more than that.

Went for brunch on a Sunday morning, had a 10:30am res and walked in about 15 min early because we read reviews to go early. Got seated right away and within 30 min, the entire patio and inside was FULL! We both had coffee and spilt a cinnamon roll - the BEST! WOW! Then had the eggs and the chicken salad, both amazing!! Our server was so kind. Will comeback!
