Olive & Ivy Restaurant & Marketplace Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I first came to Olive and Ivy a year ago and it was amazing. We are from Chicago and when I found out we were going back to Scottsdale I immediately made a reservation. I was looking forward to having dinner there again and we originally had a reservation for 7pm but we got done with our plans for the day early and called and they were able to get us in at 4:30. We arrived and were seated and when went to order were told that we couldn’t order our dinners because they don’t serve until 5pm but were also told we would have be done by 6pm because someone else had reservations for our table at that time. These facts were not relayed to me on the phone when I called to switch the time of our reservation. We all had looked at the menu online and knew what we wanted to order before we came in. So we were only allowed to order from the appetizers, salads and flatbreads and we did so accordingly. None of us (My husband, adult son and myself) liked what we ordered. We were not satisfied and left the restaurant feeling rushed and underwhelmed with the whole experience. We left with most of our food in boxes because we were told we had to leave before 6:00. It was such a big disappointment. Next time I’m in Scottsdale we will eat elsewhere.
Great food, menu . Had the sweet potato cannelloni, margarita flatbread. Huge portions . Shared both . Split the Caesar salad too. Had lemon pudding cake for dessert. A little noisy . Was Friday nite , so a DJ was a ping up the songs . Right on the waterfront area. Very nice to walk by water after dinner. Would definitely recommend, return.
I booked the reservation through OpenTable and my request for outdoor seating and the alert of a food allergy were noted by the reception desk when we arrived. The waiter was very attentive and the food was very good.
One suggestion if you're thinking of being there a while (e.g., other than eat and run); ask to sit inside. The chairs on the patio are cast iron and we found them a little uncomfortable to sit in for 2.5 hours. The seats inside are cushioned.
We’re from out of town and were drawn to this restaurant by the great vibe we got while walking by after lunch at The waterfront. We went to dinner the next night and we were not disappointed. Friendly and helpful staff, good food, and nice ambiance. My husband and I enjoyed dinner and a nice bottle of wine. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
We made reservations for brunch. Upon arrival, I realized my favorite menu item was not on the brunch menu. The wait staff and kitchen staff accommodated my request for the cannelloni even though it was not on the brunch menu. Wow, it was terrific and I really commend the staff for being so accommodating! We enjoyed our brunch, with cocktails, and dessert totally. We will definitely be back.
I had the sea bass and it was 'OK'. For the money, it was a disappointment. My husband had the chopped salad and it was WONDERFUL!! The service was great. We set on their amazing patio. We were celebrating a birthday, so free dessert. Bonus!!! All and all it was a lovely evening.
We had a lovely evening meal out on the patio to celebrate our 65 thbirthdays...and 40 plus years of friendship since graduating from the University of Manitoba with our Bachelor of Nursing degrees in 1975!
The patio was beautiful, the meal and service excellent!
Thank you for helping us to create this memorable occasion!
The food was very nice where we tried the bacon wrapped dates stuffed with Italian sausage. We also enjoyed the Seabass. The only knock was the cocktails. The old fashions were very average compared to other local dining locations. Overall great place for a date!
5 of us in our dinner party. We all enjoyed our meals and drinks. Hummus appetizer is amazing. Variety of entrees - flatbread pizza, salmon, pasta and bacon wrapped pork. We loved them all! We sat outside because we wanted a more quiet meal to visit and it was perfect. Service was top notch!!
