Olive & Ivy Restaurant & Marketplace
Book your next event with us
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!
Immediately seated at our reservation time. The food was very good. Our server was exceptional. Would recommend to family and friends
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!
Our experience was great. Food delicious and fantastic service. Thank you all.
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.
Food was great. Our waiter was fabulous. If you go, ask for the back room if you want quiet. Main dining area very noisy.
Fun place to go with a group of friends, on a casual date night, or celebrating an occasion. The atmosphere was modern and industrial. The service was fantastic! Food was unique and tasteful. I will definitely be going back!
Delicious food, great service and terrific ambiance. We had Saturday brunch on the patio and it was fantastic!
Excellent service. Great ambiance outside. Great food.
Food, wine, service perfect.
Eat on the patio and you can converse much easier than indoors.
And..........the ambiance is wonderful.
The food and service was outstanding! We had the braised short rib flatbread and it was to die for. Also, the bacon wrapped dates were delicious. Will definitely go back.
Good food and ambiance. Service was courteous but slow.
It was pretty loud In there so a tad hard to hear the people at my table. However I was very impressed with the food and the atmosphere so overall very good! Will be back. I had salmon and she had scallops and the cocktails were delicious.
Went for and early Valentines Day lunch/dinner. Perfect place to go.
Loved the food. Have eaten here before, and had excellent service. However, this time our waitress was consistently rude to us. Such a disappointment because we have had such great servers at Olive &Ivy’s.
Whenever we are in area, we will stop by!
Food was great. Would defiantly go back.
Don’t want to
As always, the service was friendly and the food delicious! The heaters on the patio made a chilly night just perfect. I look forward to going back to this restaurant.
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!
The food was not the quality we had expected. Ravioli was cold and hard
Mediterranean salad didn’t have all ingredients the menu said it had
Waiter was fabulous
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!
The Atlantic Salmon is my go to! The Peanut Butter Mousse was also delicious. The food is a wonderful experience.
Service is excellent. Food is distinctly unremarkable. The location is difficult to drive to because of the traffic congestion in the area. The restaurant itself is very hip and inviting.
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!
Food was great! Server knowledgeable! The patio was comfortable despite chilly evening. And definitely more quiet than inside!!!
Excellent food. Great beer!
Great place to bring out of town guests! Food was remarkable, service was outstanding!
Outstanding food, service and ambiance! Will definitely return for another dinner.
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.
Great Sunday brunch!!!
Outstanding service, ambiance and food. The scallops were exceptional.
Delightful atmosphere. Food was good, drinks were good. Great patio seating.
Great food excellent service. Wonderful patio dining . A local gem
