Olive & Ivy Restaurant & Marketplace

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.

The food was ok, salmon being excellent and lasagna was served cold on a very hot plate.
Nothing special, but not bad. Would go back from a second try someday. Likely due to convenient location.
Great food and service.
We have always had a great experience at this restaurant. This was completely different. We dine often at many of the busy nighttime restaurants and have come to expect the same at Olive and ivy. The food was great and the setting was fantastic.
To be honest, our server was the worst I think I’ve had at a restaurant. She was listed as Bree on the tab. If I managed or owned this restaurant I would be embarrassed with her representation of this great restaurant. We had a medium size party of very nice people who dine out together almost weekly. Everyone in the party felt as though this could be our last time here.
I have never left a bad review. We are very understanding but this was beyond reproach.
Excellent food, service and CDC safety guidelines strictly adhered to.
We had really good service and enjoyed our waiter. My Cesar salmon salad was wonderful!
Considering a limited menu, some good options!......
Had a lovely evening. Enjoyed my Atlantic salmon, and DH enjoyed scallops.
It was my birthday, first time out to eat (dine in) since COVID, server was TERRIBLE. Wasn’t polite, friendly at all. Had to ask for someone else to serve us. Something I don’t like doing but I didn’t want my day ruined or our dinning experience.
We went to Olive and Ivy for a bachelorette party dinner and they had a nice table set up for us near the windows. When one of the girls got their salmon Caesar salad, the salmon was a tad under done for her taste so our waiter apologized many times and took it back. A new one was promptly brought out, they did not charge her for the salad, and they brought us complimentary peach Bellini shots and a custom dessert. I cannot say enough good things about this service. It was the best service I’ve ever experienced and probably ever will. The food was beyond amazing, the atmosphere was fun and sexy, and the drinks were great. The price was great for the restaurant offerings.
Portions are perfect and it’s always good. Outside seating my opinion is the best!
The food and service at Olive & Ivy is always amazing!
We had a great dinner at Olive and Ivy. The waiter was very helpful in helping us choose our appetizers and dessert. The food was delicious and the ambiance was relaxing. We will definitely come back.
Excellent as always! They are very kind and make one feel special. Not intrusive either. Highly recommend.
This is a wonderful place to eat. Great food, professional staff beautiful restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Our server seemed annoyed to be there
The salad was great & the salmon was cooked perfectly!
Olive and Ivy remains one of our favorite restaurants. We do not eat out as often because of COVID-19 but we were in the area and couldn’t resist having lunch. We are always impressed with the food and service.
First time, and it was excellent from start to finish. Our service was fantastic as was our food. Very attentive staff. We ordered the bacon wrapped dates to start which were delicious (and different). My husband had the bacon wrapped tenderloin and I had the sweet potato cannelloni. Both dishes were full of flavor and beautifully plated. We ended with the butterscotch buttercream cake topped with house-made vanilla bean gelato. Every single thing was divine! I like that the Olive and Ivy menu is small. It makes deciding what to order much easier and it also means that they have their dishes perfected. Well done Olive and Ivy!
We meet some friends that had traveled into town just for lunch. We ordered the bacon cheeseburger (2) and the lamb gyro (2). Excellent food though the potato salad was “being made fresh” and wasn’t delivered unto well into the meal. They did bring out two large bowls of the house salad, which was tasty.
Was a great experience and services was a little slow at first but got a new waiter (possible shift change who knows) then service improved drastically.
Great food, excellent service! I felt very safe with the way the restaurant was managing the number of people.
Olive & Ivy is one of my favorite places to eat in the Phoenix area. Always good customer service, very nice bar scene and I really look forward to having the Lasagna. Also very good starters. They do well with the social distancing and masks. Already looking forward to next time.
I love Olive and Ivy! I often get takeout because I live so close, but whenever I dine in, I am always very impressed by the service. Friendly staff all around, beautiful ambiance, 10/10 recommend for take out or dine in!!!
Excellent service and excellent food! What more could you ask for. The menu is exquisite as you can order items to share or not. We ordered the beet salad and shared it and their trio of brushettas. You can order 1 or take advantage of a discount off 3. One was an avocado and corn, another a mozzarella and tomato, and the 3rd a quince and chirizo. They are 3 pieces in each brushetta and we all got to try them. The sweet potato cannaloni was to die for with a great sauce and wonderful mushrooms. Margarita flatbread was done exceptionally well and the lasagna bolognase brought us back to Italy!
Excellent experience. Food is consistently well-prepared and creative, service was top notch.
We were quickly greeted and seated. The tables felt perfectly social distanced. Our server was very attentive and provided excellent service. Food and drinks were great!
It was a very cute restaurant with chic decor and great ambiance. The service was a bit slow, even with COVID capacity, but it was enjoyable and the food was delicious!
Olive & ivy has been our favorites for many years. Since Covid we have only dined on the patio. This place followed all the CDC guidelines, made us feel safe. Our service was excellent and food is always outstanding. I recommend the beet Salad and the scallops. We will be back!
Wonderful meal. Very reasonably priced. Excellent cocktails.
It was great that they let us add a table so our party could social distance better! Our server must have had too many tables, because it was difficult to get his attention. The music inside is always too loud, it makes it difficult to hear conversation from people at your own table.
Was a fun double date spot with great service, food, drinks and ambiance. Will definitely return!
Great experience. Ate outdoors. Great food and service!
One of my favorite places. Can't wait for fall so we can site outside.
Our server was FANTASTIC!!
It was great. I picked the place and all my guests loved it!
we sat outside, the birds were a bit of an issue, (our server even had to remove a young bird that had been fatally wounded by other adult birds) but the service and food were wonderful
Having to wear a mask while you walk to a dinner table, where you will remove the mask and eat/Drink/be merry, is the epitome of nonsense and demonstrates just how complicit this country has been to absolute government overreach and tyranny. People, wake up before it’s too late!
The food was incredible! We had the bruschetta & hummus plate to start. Just the right amount of food. Filling & healthy! For dinner we had a the Mediterranean salad & sea bass. Both were wonderful! Wish we had this restaurant in California!!
Love the ambiance, especially outside on the patio. Food is great as well!
