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.

Such a great dining experience! Service and food was impeccable. I was warned it could be a bit noisy. I didn't mind that a bit as I appreciated the high energy on a Sunday night. Will certainly be back!

We made reservations weeks in advance for a party of 6.
We were seated in a loud corner and it was extremely dark. When we looked at other tables this one was by far one of the darkest tables. We all had to hold our phone lights up to order And to see the menu. We had to hold our phone lights up to see our food when it came. It really ruined the evening for us. For the tables that don’t have lights above them why not put extra or larger candles on the table or do something to Brighten that area, We literally could NOT see the food. We finally had propped two phone lights on the table to be able to see each other, our drinks and the food. The waiter was crabby. Didn’t smile and when we asked questions he was condescending and rude. For such a beautiful place it was such a horrible experience!!! Not happy!

We are outside next to the fire pit which was nice and cozy and so much better because you could actually hear the other person(s) talk. Food was amazing and waitress was super nice and helpful when it came to ordering.

Outstanding food and excellent service! We sat outside on the patio to celebrate Valentine's Day. Even though it was very cold, we stayed warm under the heating lamps and enjoyed the beautiful relaxed atmosphere. The food was sooo good!

We are visiting Scottsdale for the first time and Olive and Ivy was highly recommend. We were seated on time to our reservation and our waiter was great. We all enjoyed our dinners and the gelato was delicious.
The music from the DJ was very loud.

What a massive disappointment! From the wannabe DJ looping somebody else’s iTunes playlist in the corner, to the wannabe staff trying way too hard not to be friendly, to the wannabe food that was pre-made for daytime TV but delivered cold, apparently to wake us up from a drunken sleep like a late night Shake Weight infomercial targeted at the pathetic hordes of cougars and bros that seem to congregate here for MTV Real World and Real Housewives of Scottsdale auditions, Olive + Ivy is the embodiment of what I hate about marketing driven mega-mall restaurants. What is my humble opinion, you ask? Don’t waste your hard earned time and money on this Shake Weight! Stumble over to Shake Shack, grab some decent take out burgers for you and your lady, jump into an Uber back to Mountain Shadows Resort for some real hospitality and romance and call this place Over + Done!

All I can say is wow, this restaurant really has it together. We made our anniversary reservation via open table and requested a booth. Upon our arrival, we were pleasantly surprised to be seated at a booth. Our waiter, Roberto, was absolutely amazing. He was available, able to answer questions, and provided the perfect amount of service during our dinner. The food was not only prompt, but deliciously different. Olive and Ivy’s combination of flavors will please any palate. Upon our completion of dinner, we ordered their olive oil cake. To our surprise, they wrote happy anniversary with chocolate.

When picking a restaurant for important event like an anniversary, the small touches really show the above and beyond dedication of the service team. After our anniversary experience here, we have become loyal fans.

This restaurant is a must pick for any special occasion.

My fiance and I went here to celebrate our three year anniversary and to celebrate our engagement. We were so excited to have a parents night out, and to try some place new. The second we walked in, we knew we loved it. The lighting, the hostess, the food, drinks, etc. They sat us at a table for two and our waitress, Sabrina was beyond helpful. She helped us pick a delicious wine that would go great with our dinner. She kept in mind what we liked, and made the experience perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better night. Cameron came around and made sure we were okay and to make sure our dinner was delicious - which we really appreciated! What an incredible place. I would recommend the lasagna, and the bruschetta. The avocado and the tomato and mozzarella was our favorite! Can't wait to go back!

My best friend and I participated in the Phoenix-Mesa marathon earlier this day and this was post-race celebration. Olive + Ivy was recommended by a colleague and it did not disappoint! Food and atmosphere were fabulous as was the staff. My only disappointment is there isn’t an Olive + Ivy in northern NJ! Should I return to Scottsdale, enjoying a meal here will be a priority!

Nice atmosphere. Watch for birds (above) on patio. Sandwich bread too thick. House dressing a little bland. Service excellent. Narrower coffee cups would keep coffee warmer for longer period of time - hard to drink from soup-bowl shape cup. Good value for price.

Our hotel shuttle was running a bit late, so I called the restaurant before noon and let them know -- so they knew we were on our way. We arrived at about 12:10 pm, the hostess found our reservation and said it would be a "few minutes" while they got our table ready. At 12:41 pm (I wrote it down), they decided to put at us a round table in the back room - which had been available the entire time. And not once did anyone recognize or apologize for our wait. We received water at 12:54 pm (yes, 54 minutes AFTER our reservation time), and our food made it to us at 1:15 pm! We were completely rushed, as we had to get back to out board meeting. We ordered our food at the same time we ordered our drinks and asked for the check when our food came out. I was so disappointed and embarrassed, as I am the one who selected this restaurant for the Board. It is so unfortunate, as the food was quite delicious -- even eaten at a rapid pace.

UPDATE: I changed my rating to 3 stars, as I was not expecting the restaurant manager, Rachelle, to contact me directly. She was kind and apologetic. She gave me the feeling that they did all they could to accommodate and that the service we received was a rare occurrence and not the norm. Thank you, Rachelle ... and Shannon - our awesome waitress!

High ceilings, very large, modern dining room. Great service and customer service outstanding. The restaurant actually called me as they saw I had changed the TIME of the reservation to inform me that I everything on the menu wasn't available until the later time. They wanted to ensure I was going to be satisfied with that and I was. The bacon wrapped dates were delicious and next time I would try their bruschetta. Next to a very nice mall, Fashion Square in Old Town Scottsdale. They also gave us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary, a very sweet gesture. Would recommend the restaurant, especially for the small plates and the service.
