Mediterranean
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.

Menu is fairly limited. Not really the Mediterranean experience you expect. The charcuterie platter is ridiculous at $21 as it's half full of bread. The lasagna for $18 was in a small bowl, more like a lunch portion. While the food was good the experience made us feel empty.

From out of town. Came highly recommended and it didn’t disappoint. Bruschetta and Bacon wrapped did are were amazing. The pesto is the freshest I’ve ever had.
Very friendly waitress. The music was a bit loud, but it was a Friday night. Great overall!

Even though there were few gluten free items the ones they had were spectacular. We will be back in the area next month and will definitely go back.

Very good service. Love the fried seafood/zucchini appetizer and the flatbread. Artichoke app seemed kind of odd. Great recommendation on wine too.

The servers were great! They were prompt and accurate and personable. The ambiance is great as well.
But the food was not so great. The meatballs were luke warm, the mushroom bruschette wasn’t good at all - tasteless, cold and the bread was hard. Then lasagne was lacking big time - all noodles and hardly any sauce. We didn’t send anything back as we were starving and kinda cramped for time.
We’ve dined here many times and have brought many friends as well. My only hope is that our experience on this particular evening was an isolated one!
Thank you.

The table that was provided was too small. We had a hard time for hostess to accommodate an extra chair for our purses. Food was good, service was great.

This was our first time at Olive and Ivy. We really liked the restaurant and ambiance. Food was very good, however the portions were small based on the price charged. We found the menu with not so many options. We will definitely come back and try other dishes.

We had a wonderful lunch experience with Veronica as our server. Enjoyed the bacon wrapped dates, chicken panini and artichoke flatbread. When I asked about the gelato and sorbet for dessert, Veronica brought me samples to try. Overall a great experience for two out of town diners.

Olive and Ivy is a great place for lunch. The food is very good - great salads. Prices are average. The noise level is a little high - lots of activity

This is one of our favorite places in town, especially for lunch. Had local friends and friends from out of town, none which had been here before. We met at O+I for dinner. The weather was great so we sat outside. Everyone had a great time. Thanks!

First but not my last visit by any means. Food was exceptional as well as the service. My only regret is that we had limited time due to an upcoming appointment so couldn’t really take it all in. I look forward to going back and enjoying it all at a much more leisurely pace. Go, you won’t regret it.

The hostesses and our server Jesse were fantastic. They could definitely use a better wine by the glass and whiskey selection ..perhaps more high end selections. Overall we truly enjoyed our experience and it was worth the drive from Phoenix.

We went for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. You need to make reservations. Parking is limited in front of restaurant. Park in Nordstroms parking lot nearby. We recommend that you try to be seated outside patio. We were right at the edge of that. Ambiance was terrific. Noise level was moderate and you could hear yourself talk.The Arizona restaurant week set menu of $44.00 was fantastic. The meal portions were not cut down. I had the chicken scaloppini and my wife had the salmon. Excellent. Delicious. The waiter Samuel was terrific. He immediately recognized what our dining wants and needs were. The service was great and not pushy. We both enjoyed the meal . Highly recommend. We will return here another time.
