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.

We’ve been coming here for quite some time and make sure to come to O & I for our anniversary. We come for a short visit to escape winter in Wisconsin and we always look forward to dining here. The food was great, but, unfortunately, this time, the service was a bit off. Our beet salad was missed and the dessert we ordered was wrong. Will we come back? Yes! We all have “one of those days”. One of the little touches that was missed this year, was “Happy Anniversary “ written in chocolate that has been on our dessert plate for the last five years. Will we come back next January? That is the plan.

Salmon which was supposed to be medium rare, was served raw. Two different chicken dishes were mediocre. No bread served until requested. Olive and Ivy has been one of our local favorites. But this visit was a real disappointment.

Senior Citizens returning for another visit. We know the restaurant.

Hard to make a Reservation on Friday evenings! Got one at 5:45 pm. Coming from a movie at Harkins Theatres. Next one was at 9:15 pm.

We were seated in an area just off the main dining area and it was not noisy where we were.
Bar area is normally fairly noisy

Service was good and food was good.
Enjoyed our meal

Fantastic food. Our artichoke hearts appetizer never arrived. :-( Stone. Our waiter seemed preoccupied. We would go back for sure. Mistakes happen.

This was our last visit to Olive and Ivy. The food portions were incredibly small compared to the prices charged at similar restaurants. The taste of the food also was lacking and very salty. The drinks were poorly made and not up to the previous experiences. Noise level was high making it hard to hold a conversation at the table. The bright spot was the attentiveness and friendly service by our waiter.

I've been several times and have a great time each time I visit. This particular day was a busy Saturday during brunch time and while the restaurant was very busy, the service was great, food came out in a normal amount of time, and it was definitely noisier than when I've been at quiet times but was I was still able to carry out a normal conversation with my friend. I can't wait to go back!

Olive & Ivy is upscale, with an open preparation bar and kitchen, and very busy. The waiter was great, attentive and knew the menu. My tuna sandwich had nothing unique but was very tasty, however, my friend ordered a Chicken Pelini that had such little chicken it honestly looked like the packaged gross sliced kind, and the bread was not really Pelini bread. She took two bites and pushed it away, without intending to say a word. The manager was excellent. He noticed, apologized profusely, deleted her order off the check, and gave us a wonderful dessert for free. We watched many superb looking orders served to others so I guess we just ordered the wrong things. Bottom line, I would certainly try it again but my friend said never. She is an excellent chef so she knows quality. Great management makes a difference. ATTENTION: One real issue that they should definitely fix is the directions. They may legally be at the stated address, but in reality, they are about two blocks in the rear. I am betting they lose 25% new business because there are way too many other choices so after looking for 20 minutes one gets frustrated and gives up. They should change directions mentioning the small street that dead-ins at their doorstep, to make finding it so much easier.

Too loud inside. Wait staff was exceptional. I had the caesar salad with salmon and the salmon was a little dry. Pesto was amazing.

Wonderful food. Service started good but then deteriorated as they got better. We think the server had too many tables

We asked for a quiet table and were shown to a small room in the back of the restaurant. It was lovely. Our server was named Zach- very attentive without being intrusive. Food was fantastic- very generous portions.

We eat there frequently, however, this time felt very rushed, and outer eggs were over poached. Solid little yellow rubber balls. We waited for our server to come and ask if everything was alright, but she never did. Not a great brunch experience.

Me and my boyfriend come here every so often but this last time was disappointing, food seemed like it sat for a while before being brought to us and over all was underwhelming. They were busy with it being a holiday so probably best to skip them for the holidays.

We love Olive and Ivy. We go there for many special occasions. We went with some friends on NYE. It was so loud we couldn’t hear each other without yelling to speak. They had a DJ. That would be fine if the music wasn’t so very loud. I almost always get the scallops, which are fabulous. This time they were different. A bit of a disappointment from past visits. I noticed the restaurant wasn’t as full as it normally has been on NYE.

Best restaurant for us in the whole town! We went New Years Eve & made sure we had a reservation nearly a month ahead. The rib eye and scallops were amazing! I nearly licked my plate. Our servers were wonderful and attentive on a very obviously busy night. We will be back!

Server was very busy. We placed an order for hummus as an appetizer. But only did it not come, he forgot to take our lunch order. When our lunch came...the hummus did not. It was a disappointing experience

Excellent food, reasonably sized portions, attentive service, perfectly located to enjoy Scotsdale’s character. Be prepared for slightly higher noise level if seated inside and prices on higher end but balances with the higher quality experience provided.
