Olive and 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.

Wonderful!!! Food was outstanding (greatest bread ever), and the service was really great! The main restaurant was very loud; however they seated us in a little quieter room to the side which was perfect. Will come back and make res to sit outside next time!!!

We planned to meet and have dinner here before going to an art exhibit. Our server, Olivia was wonderful and offered both menus for us to choose from. We went with the Restaurant Week offering and upgraded to a bottle of wine. Wonderful dining experience!

pleasant and fun ambiance. but if you have any challenge to hearing, sit close or ask for adjacent dining room. I have been here at night and at noon. it is always noisey. Guess folks are just excited to be together.

Olive and Ivy is always beautiful. The artichoke appetizer is delicious and my white truffle pizza was pretty good but was not the most exciting. The mango margarita was amazing. The service was good except for my friend asked for fresh fries and they didn’t bring them until. We were done eating but they took them off the bill for her so that was nice. I love bring people here and would recommend.

The steaks were nicely done. Side order of scalloped potatoes were superb. Appetizers (lobster bisque and Mediterranean salad) likewise. Desserts (strawberry tarte and caramel cheese pie) likewise. Highly recommended if a little pricey.

Terrific experience. Great service. Every course was a hit. We lucked out on being there during a half price wine by the bottle - another bonus. Outdoor patio was very nice. Recommended!

Overall, was good. Wanted to sit outside in the lounge area, said they were not serving there, so I was forced to sit inside.

We called ahead of time to tell them that there would be 5 of us instead of the 4 on the reservation, but apparently nobody noted that, so when we arrived they apologized, but then proceeded to put 5 chairs at a small square table. It was an incredibly uncomfortable and tight squeeze, made worse by the fact that there were open tables around us that would have fit us better. When we asked to move, we were told there were reservations at those tables, even though we stayed for many hours having drinks after our meal, and nobody ever showed up at any of them. Such disappointing service.

My second visit. First visit was inside, so noisy you can’t have a conversation easily. Sat outside this time, was perfect and lovely. We had Mediterranean salad and a flatbread for lunch. Was amazing! Service was great will go again and eat outside!

I have always loved their salmon salad and had gracious service. This time the salmon was over cooked and the waitress could be better suited at a Dennys.

Generally, it’s a bustling place with a high decibel of activity permeating one’s ears. But, we were fortunate (either by luck or the attentiveness of astute staff) to be seated in a quiet corner of a semi enclosed side area. It was much appreciated by all of us, and especially our 84 years young friend. All of the food was impeccably prepared and the service was gracious and efficient. The experience was a delight.

Have always enjoyed Olive and Ivy...especially in the winter and spring when patio is available. This time the noise level inside was extremely noisy and my companion's food had to be returned to the kitchen. Her soup was so salty she could not eat it. She then ordered dessert and what she selected was sold out.

The waitress was very good and understood our complaints.

I am not sure what happened with this previously decent restaurant, but our last experience was quite disappointing. They definitely have a surplus of air dry corn and add it to every meal - bruschetta, hummus, lobster pasta, lasagna - you name it. Veggies that came as a side with hummus were chopped to serve as a teething device for a baby, not a bite size slices. Lasagna was just layers of regular pasta (not lasagna sheets) mixed with sauce.
Sea bass was ok, but nothing exceptional.
Our interaction with a server was minimal.
Oh! And wine glasses were “cloudy”, not washed properly.

Not coming back.

The food, when it arrived an hour later was great.
Drinks took 25 minutes
Appetizer arrived with table bread all at the same time and well before drinks.

The server was friendly but the timing was extremely slow and nobody seemed to care.

Tables were packed in and it was hard to talk across the table. Noise level was really too loud to talk.

I’ll give you another try only because I enjoyed the quality of the food. Hoping the service will improve!

I loved the restaurant, but I was entertaining out of town guests and wanted it to be special and the waiter was inattentive and my meal was cold. I really liked the atmosphere, but the noise level is really loud.

Really quick and friendly service, not an ambient quiet place but I am sure you can tell that just looking at the place. The food was very good. The menu is pretty overall varied - nothing really out of the ordinary or unique, but still very very good. Would recommend and will return.

The last few times we've tried to get in Olive & Ivy for lunch there has been a considerable wait time so this trip I made a reservation. We were seated fairly promptly and our server was very good. One of the items I wanted from the menu was unavailable but I found something else to order. The food was great especially the bacon wrapped dates and the butterscotch cream cake. I always enjoy eating here.
