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.

We went to olive and Ivy before our shopping at Fashion Square. Out door seating overlooking the canal. You could not find a better place to enjoy the beautiful winter day in Arizona. I enjoyed the sea bass and my wife had the Mediterranean salad both our favorites. Looking forward to our next visit.

I took my fiancé for her birthday and put in the notes that it was her birthday, when we arrived they tried to put us right next the door at night with it open so I asked for something closer inside, the hostess made it seem like it was the end of the world, we ate, food was great like always but at the end she didn’t even remember that it was a birthday. I eat here often, I wasn’t asking for a red carpet but maybe just let her fell a little bit special even a hey, happy birthday.

2 hr wait for a table (no reservations) on a Sat night at 7:00 pm but we scored a table in the bar/lounge area... server was great. It was quite loud, plus they had a DJ, but the food was good and we enjoyed our drinks. We will return!

We always look forward to coming here when we are in town. The food is always excellent, I had the salmon and the rest of us had lasagna and chicken piccata. All the meals were great, service was very good. The ambience is fantastic along the waterfront and on the outside patio with the heaters that you don’t even need a jacket while sitting out there. I don’t think I could handle the inside noise level at all. Very loud music and loud conversations, but outside was perfect.

I had a business dinner, and my boss recommended Olive and Ivy Restaurant. She was not wrong! Everything from the start of the dinner until we left for that evening was superb! The wait staff was friendly, courteous and attentive. Appetizers, dinner and desserts were absolutely delicious. The ambience was perfect, whether you were there for a business dinner, casual night out to meet some friends or a date. it all works...at the same time! I will be back! Can't wait!

Have been to Olive and Ivy many times and always enjoyed it. The Frito Misto appetizer and the Margharita Flatbread were excellent. However, the three pasta entrees were only slightly warm and were sort of stuck together as though that had been sitting under warming lights too long. I would have complained, but since we were being treated by our out of town guests, I didn't feel comfortable doing so.

The service was excellent and the ambience very good. I would characterize the restaurant as loud rather than "energetic" as it was described in the choices given.

We will return again and hope for better pasta next time around.

I had a reservation at 8PM on a Friday night. There was a DJ playing music so loud it felt like I was yelling to my friend. We asked the waiter if the music could be turned down but it was still loud. I don’t remember going to dinner here before and thinking I was in a club so I don’t know when that became a thing? Service was average, we were always waiting on something it seemed like. Overall, very disappointed with my last visit here. I’ve been coming to Olive and Ivy for years but this is my first time in 6 months or so

Unfortunately our entree was not as ordered and it was not a good experience for one in our group. We do like the food in general though. Also,, a waiter spilled salad dressing on my companion on the way to another table. We usually enjoy our experience, and we will give it another try again soon.

I had asked for a table outside because it is quieter outside and most importantly, one of my guests had worked on the Art Canal Convergence project and I wanted a great view of it. Thank you so much for providing us with a fantastic table and perfect view!
