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.

Not as impressed this time. Been here for biz events but don't recall knock out experience. Wanted to try brunch. Casey was our server - either overly slammed or not very good at time mgmt.. Drinks took forever to provide... Server recommendation on scrambled flatbread was terrible. No flavor except using pesto from bread since nothing was offered... anaemic offering looked like 1 scrambled egg for an entire pizza. Dont recommend. Wife had the Hash breakfast. She shared it was very bland. Kids had cinnamon french toast and 1 buritto. At least they enjoyed it. $8.50 titos is par for area so no deals there. Had to ask for another after server purposely provided bill w/o asking me. Terrible IMO. Not impressed and won't drive from peoria again for low grade output. Too many other establishments to hut.

Olive and Ivy never fails to serve up delicious food that is fresh and interesting. Parking is so convenient that on hot days, it works out especially well to be so close without having to walk long distances. Though the restaurant is always buzzing, the wait is minor and from the hostess to the servers, attention is present when needed.
We had a wrong dish delivered to the table but it was replaced rapidly with apologies. It can happen! But, everyone enjoyed what they ordered and left happy.

Food, drinks and service were great. Had among us salmon, scallops poor and beef all very tasty. Bruschetta a must! Noisy and this may affect table conversation only drawback

My fourth time eating here and each time the food has been excellent. The service was very good and my only complaint was the noise level is a bit harsh inside since it does get very crowded. Would highly recommend for business dinners or dates, but book well in advance.

I enjoyed my birthday brunch at Olive and Ivy with my family. The service was excellent. The food was good. I wasn't crazy about the brunch menu. I will return for dinner in the near future.

Awesome brunch spot in old town right next to the beautiful canal. Had the white sangria which was awesome but my one suggestion would be to have some added fruit to really enhance it. The french toast and eggs benedict were amazing!! I would highly recommend sharing here so you can try various items.

Food and wine was very good, great service, and lovely outdoor patio. Added bonus was watching a couple get engaged! This is a great place for friend get-togethers as well as romantic dates. I love the sweet potato cannelloni but will return to try other dishes.

We had wanted to go to this local Scottsdale eatery for some time, so we went last Sunday. The ambiance is very pleasant, although it is quite noisy, and a bit difficult to hold a conversation because of this. The food is quite good. I had the "flatbread" pesto chicken (meaning pizza), and my wife the sea bass. Both were very nicely done. The wine is reasonably priced. Our server was pleasant and attentive. This is an excellent place for a date or nice outing - but not a romantic evening.

The bruschetta was OUTSTANDING! The plating was sloppy and definitely left a lot to be desired. My scallops we just OK the corn pudding was way way WAY too sweet. My husbands steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare but served sitting in a blob of creamed spinach with incredibly over salted fingerling potatoes tossed on top. I ordered the grapefruit mojito which was a total miss for me. I usually love grapefruit things but the drink was not minty or sweet enough to be called a mojito. The bitterness overwhelmed the drink and I could not finish it. The best entree on the table was my sons margarita pizza!! With all of the restaurants in the area we probably will not go back.

The service and food was good. We had the lamb meatballs for an appetizer, pork tenderloin and sweet potato cannelloni for main courses. We were treated to dessert for my birthday. The lemon pudding cake with ice cream was yummy and a nice touch. Would definitely come back again.

For what I consider to be the best restaurant in Scottsdale the attention to detail on my reservation request was an actual 0/10 and I just asked for any small table decoration, literally was just hoping for a special candle or some type of decorative flair or, well, anything. Instead we sat at a pretty sad looking table for an 8 year anniversary that was again mentioned in our reservation request. Food amazing as always.

Have never had a bad meal here. Their salads and pasta are fabulous. Bread and pesto the best. Servers are attentive without being a pest. Wish they had better parking. Pretty much need to valet.

Our service was perfect and the Bruschetta was great and our Entrees were excellent!!! I enjoyed the Wild mushroom entree and my husband ordered the Risotto with shrimp. Risotto was cooked perfectly and there was adequate amount of shrimp with the tails removed. About time restaurants remove the tails, sounds trivial but.... My mushroom pasta dish was out of this world, I watch my carbs but I didn't care. Fun when you enjoy your entire experience.

The reason I’m giving this restaurant such low stars is because we ate there last night and it was 78 or 80 degrees in the restaurant , it was so uncomfortable. I will not be back until they lower the temperature. The waitress was even complaining. You definitely can’t come here for a business dinner because you will be sweating. You must wear t shirt and shorts to get some relief which wouldn’t be appropriate for this restaurant. My husband had on a long sleeve button up and was miserable and sweating from it being so HOT. We asked the waitress to turn down the AC and she said it was as low as it could go. . I have been to several other restaurants in the area that are cool inside. The strawberry margaritas were 5 stars; so refreshing and not to sweet. The scallops are AMAZING!!! My favorite in Arizona.

The service was great, we were seated almost immediately (we did have a reservation) and were greated right away by a friendly, helpful, knowledgeable young lady. The Mediteranean salad was delious and the dessert, Peanut Butter and mocha mouse, was amazing. Would definitely go back and would recommend to friends.
