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.

I asked for a specific table and it wasn't accommodated. The noise level was so great that the people seated on each side of me couldn't hear each other. The server had to lean over the table to hear our order.
We even went later than normal brunch time. Very disappointed in the experience overall. If you want to talk then sit outside.

Every time we go to Olive and Ivy we try something different and have never had a bad meal. Great service and a beautiful atmosphere. Worth the drive, but waits can get long - reservations are worth it.

Went to Olive and Ivy a few nights ago and absolutely loved it. The service was fantastic and the food, incredible. I had the white cranberry cosmo an it was delicious, highly recommend especially during this season. Our server was great and super patient with us. Food was delicious and the menu offers a variety of choices.

I don’t like that the place lied to us and said waiting is 45 min for a table then open table showed me that a table is available in 7 min. The other thing, they said that open table is just for indoor seating which after their first lie, I’m not sure if that was true or not.

I wish we had an Olive and Ivy restaurant in Canada . We dined there 3 times in the 4 days we were there . We were seated at the Chef’s table one evening and thoroughly enjoyed watching the controlled chaos in the kitchen . Very professional.
Would highly recommend !

Visiting from out of town. Best meal we had in Scottsdale. Great server, Casey. Attentive but not pushy, good sense of humor and knew the menu. Nice patio. We opted for indoors but still had a nice view. Salmon was delicious, loved the beets served with it. Highly recommend

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.
