Olive & Ivy Restaurant & Marketplace

Great food and atmosphere.
Lots of fun for my birthday but service was lacking due to how busy it was. The server did her very best. As a industry working human, lack of attention was due to how busy it was.
Lovely ambiance, especially with Convergence going on in the background!
Food was quite good, served in an appealing way, and done very well.
The noise level - especially with the background music - was a bit over powering at times.
Our server was helpful, very responsive and knowledgeable.
Overall, a delightful dining experience.
All the items we chose were delicious
We have been many times and we will return again
As always, Olive and Ivy was a pleasure on all counts!
Great food and location! Staff is very nice and the food is delicious.
Olive and Ivy is the perfect spot to enjoy the canal and all the activities in "old town"
We showed up early for our reservation and were seated in a reasonable amount of time. Server was attentive and check back frequently, as we were taking our time ordering. House wines were pretty good for the price. Food was good, but not outstanding. Wish we'd had a few more low-carb options to choose from, besides salads.
Love the patio area and the food selection is excellent. Had the Pork recently and it was fantastic....combined with their nice selection of wine (highly recommend their Malbec) it made my night.
Excellent evening on the patio. Perfect beginning to the annual Scottsdale Art Convergence.
Olive & Ivy has been consistently good. The food never disappoints and the service is about as good as you can get. Our waiter was spot on refilling water glasses, iced tea and even my iced coffee. He was never in your face but always not far when you needed something.
My Kale salad was so delicious I hope it never comes off the menu, so good.
Great food, drinks, and service.
You know when you find one of those places where you know (A) the food is always good, (B) the service is also consistent, (C) there is something on the menu for everyone and (D) the price is definitely fair for what you get?
Well, this is the place!!! I really love it here and I've never had a bad meal or bad experience. It's definitely my go to place for any meal whether I'm going with my family or taking a client out to lunch or dinner.
Whatever you do, make a reservation!!! I can promise you, you will always have to wait unless you make a reservation.
Bruschetta was amazing as was the lasagna and mushroom pasta. Rib eye was enormous and an great price for the size. Pork tenderloin was a bit under cooked and underwhelming but the pasta made up for it. We will return!
Server awesome...beautiful restaurant and open kitchen...food excellent...comfy booth...music too loud
Nice patio & good ambience throughout restaurant, plus attentive food servers (though would appreciate water refills without asking, including after we pay the bill). Food was just okay.
My boss and his party had a wonderful Salmon Caesar Salad each, while overlooking the canal. They enjoyed the ambiance, the food, and their seating very much. It was perfect for a casual business meeting and my boss was very pleased to show it to his out-of-town guest!
Being seated on the patio made this a wonderful and comfortable evening. Excellent server.
Main courses not exceptional.
Interior noise level would have been very uncomfortable for our quartet.
It’s was my daughters partners birthday. I commented in the notes when I made my reservation but nothing was said. Not even a happy birthday from the staff. That was disappointing. On the plus side we ordered family style which the waiter served without an issue
Awesome place to eat. We made reservations the night before and that is the way to go.
No waiting and we sat on the patio which we wanted. Awesome food for all of us.
Our server was exceptional! Thank you for the great service ;) and delicious food.
Excellent salads and the grilled chicken was fantastic. The lemon pudding cake was delicious. Had a great time and staff were friendly, helpful and efficient.
We fly in from Dallas to go to Scottsdale. We were recommended this restaurant. We absolutely loved it! The food was excellent. I had the chicken meal. It tastes like a thanksgiving dinner. My husband loved the ravioli! Our waitress was Jill. She was great! Always refilling our glasses and great service. It was our anniversary. She brought us a wonderful cheese cake. We sat on the patio. It was a beautiful night. They had a light show found on around the canal. We will definitely be back!
Fantastic food and service as always!
Good service. Good food. Nice atmosphere!
Very well done. We sat outside and it was beautiful.
Amazing Ambience! Fabulous Food! Excellent Service! Perfect Weather!
Service was good but food was cold when it arrived at the table.
Awesome, that's it!
Landis was our waiter & his suggestions as to what to order were perfect. If I were to go there again I would definitely ask for him. We had their lemon pudding cake for dessert & it was marvelous. The Mediterranean salad was nice as well as the truffle flat bread. Plenty of Shrimp was in the salad with a nice salad dressing. It is a very pleasant dining spot.
This was our second visit. We usually stop here after SkyHarbor. Great vibe here. Food is expertly prepared. We enjoyed the bruschetta assortment appetizer. Bread with pesto sauce arrived thereafter. Delicious. We all ordered salads and they were fresh and unique. I tried the Cobb and my guests enjoyed the Kale. Our server was OUTSTANDING! She was extremely knowledgeable and efficient! Looking forward to our next visit. The previous visit, I ordered, Sea Bass. It was wonderful!
We had delicious Sunday brunch. The restaurant was beautiful and the service was exceptional. I had the artichoke heart frittata, a cafe latte and bites of a chocolate croissant and cinnamon roll. I can’t wait to go back the next time I’m in town.
Service and food quality were severely lacking.
Waited nearly 10 minutes for a server to introduce himself after being seated. Initially offered to take a drink order and did not discuss the menu. Had to ask if server would take our appetizer order and one app was bright with the meal rather than beforehand.
Food was “eh” and ingredients weren’t paired well as well as poorly seasoned.
Nice ambiance and location - that was about it.
Server- amazing. Good amazing. Open air. Was a beautiful evening
Very noisy BUT service and food fantastic!
As always, great service, great food and outstandingly ambiance on the patio.
First time I've eaten here. A little pricey for lunch. However, the prices are a match for the serving sizes. My only suggestion would be to make the portions a little smaller & reduce the prices proportionately.
I travel for work. I didn't see anything that really stood out.
Best restaurant in old town, based on food, atmosphere, service and location
Food was excellent and consistent.
Indoor dining was a bit noisy so we were moved to the outside dining which was GREAT.
Great patio dining
