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 were getting together with another couple to share a meal and conversation. Only problem was that the restaurant - and then the DJ were SO LOUD that we could not carry on any kind of conversation at our table. Totally ruined our experience.

Both the service and the food were top notch but the overall experience was a disaster. You should warn people when they make reservations that if they want to talk at their table, they should go somewhere else.

My visit to Olive & Ivy was for an employee birthday lunch chosen by my staff member.
Both of us had been to your establishment many times. One item we both chose was the bacon wrapped dates! Excellent!!! He had never been to your Camelback facility and was delighted to visit it.
The service was great. Thanks for making it special for him.

The hummus was incredible, and the staff friendly for the most part. There was a mixup on my reservation, where the time I selected was when they were closing. However, the staff adjusted and still seated me so I don't have to go to bed hungry. I enjoyed it, overall.

Approx 10 min from being seated to first server arriving, who was not actually our server. When our server did arrive he said “have you decided?” Without even welcoming us or introducing himself. Felt very impersonal. Poor experience.

Food was delicious. One of the best lamb gyros I have had! Everything was fresh and made from scratch in-house, down to the breads. Paired my weekend lunch with a perfectly balanced Bellini. Not too sweet, not watered down/too strong. Service was great and we loved our waitress. Ambiance was lively and modern, venue had high ceilings and a very open plan, making it great for special occasions or a casual get together. Highly recommend !

I ate lunch with a friend I just met and the staff was so comforting and complimentary to the both of us. We ate on Saturday and the menu was easy to understand and not overwhelming. I like the option of a quality lunch or breakfast. Very impressive establishment and it lives up to the kind of dining one would expect in downtown Scottsdale. I'd go again for sure.

Olive & Ivy was fantastic! The outdoor patio was amazing! It is set on the “waterfront” area and is shaded with misters. The bruschetta appetizer and artichoke app (more like a salad) were yummy. The wine menu is exceptional- Donovan our server chose a delicious red for me that I thoroughly enjoyed- Pinot Noir Fox Block Twelve. We split the sea bass, scallops and salmon dishes for four people and had more than enough. The desserts were fantastic- we shared the lemon pudding cake and the peanut butter mousse which was one of the BEST desserts that I have ever eaten! Would definitely go back!
Was surprised to see that they have a small restaurant at the Sky Harbor airport! @ 6am it was a beacon of light in the darkness!

Came here based on open table recommendations. We are from the East coast.
This restaurant Has a vibrant atmosphere. They have out door sitting under cover by The Arizona canal. We sat inside because of the heat. Zack was our waiter and he did a nice job. The scallops were great, very tasty. We had the beet salad which was nice and the pasta with mushrooms which was good too. This looks like they have a fun bar scene. Nice wine list. Certainly a good pick for the area.

Here’s an idea: when a customer has a reservation HAVE THE TABLE READY.
Also please do not have someone clean the baseboards near tables when people are eating.
Very bad form.

We eat here pretty often and the wait staff and food have always been great
We had 6:30 reservation and arrived at 6:15, even though restaurant was empty hostess told us table would be ready closer to our reservation time:(. Although we enjoy the bar here and didn’t mind having a drink I think we should’ve been given the choice.
We had wine with dinner and were charged for a 2nd bottle which we didn’t have, didn’t realize it until we were on the way home. Manager was very helpful and did take care of the charge
We really do like this restaurant and will go back

Our server was nice, but I think he decided that two women were probably not worth a bunch of his time, so we saw him initially, then to take our order, and a brief check in after the meal arrived. Our table was near the patio doors, and apparently that's where the wait staff hang out in between whatever they need to be doing. Also there was a computer station right behind us so someone was constantly behind me while I was eating which felt weird. The wait staff were chatty and also way too close to our table. It was annoying.

I asked the waiter how the Chicken Scallopini was and he praised it, so I ordered it. It tasted like a frozen cutlet( pretty sure it was since the crumb coating was too even to be fresh) and had absolutely NO flavor. The restaurant was icy cold so I ate it because it was hot. My friend and I joked that it , like the waiter, and the whole place was 'fine'. Not good, Not awful, just 'fine'.

I used to come here all the time and it was always a nice experience. I don't think I'll be back.

Service was great. Ambience is very cozy and welcoming. Perfect for date night or even a nice night out with friends. It is a bit loud but it is a busy restaurant which is a given. Everything from the Fritto Misto to the homemade Ravioli is divine. Salmon was cooked perfectly. The wine list has a great variety and the server was pretty knowledgeable on the wine as well.
