Food was okay, drinks weren’t good, too many birds outside but I guess that’s not the restaurant’s fault. My favorite part was the bread service with pesto.
This was my second time at the restaurant. First time was in February and the outside dining was great as was the food and service. Overall excellent. On Sunday I came to celebrate my friend's birthday at brunch. We felt rushed from the moment we sat down. After 30 minutes it felt like the server was ready for us to move on. Very disappointing. The food was good but not as hot as it should have been. Also, have to be honest, nothing was pretty about the presentation. My plate looked like it could have come from Dennys.
Overall pretty disappointed.
One of my favorite spots in old town ! Food is always awesome and service is great ! I would recommend it to anyone!
We really loved our food. Service was great. Gelato was very good.
Olive and Ivy is my go-to lunch place in Scottsdale. Food is always consistently good and healthy.
Great! Awesome food! The Mediterranean salad was delish with the perfect amount of dressing - not overly saturated!
This restaurant never disappoints. We sat out on the patio on a lazy sunday midday with misters going. It is a beautiful setting. The bloody Mary's were delicious. My husband got a salad and it was delicious. I had the veggie egg scramble and a mocha. The coffee beverages are wonderful. Service was a bit slow but we were in no hurry and the setting was so beautiful.
Tried this place while visiting Scottsdale for the first time. Had a great brunch! I'd go back...
the food was delicious. We were quite comfortable on the patio with misters. thank you.
Excellent food and service! The bone in ribeye was steakhouse quality while being seasoned and cooked to perfection. The sea bass was beautiful but somewhat dry. We tried three different bruschetta plates and each was good, not great. We will stick with the fresh baked focaccia and homemade pesto next time, both were out of this world! The desserts were exceptional as well. We tried the lemon cake and peanut butter mousse. Overall, we enjoyed every aspect of dinner along with the attentive wait staff.
The food at Olive & Ivy is truly exceptional. I visited the restaurant twice during a recent vacation to Arizona with friends and family. On both occasions the food was superb. One of my relatives who has done a fair amount of travel in the US and overseas rated her experience at Olive & Ivy within the top five restaurants she has ever been to. This is definitely a restaurant I will visit again on my next trip to Arizona!!!
Have eaten here before and enjoyed it. This time was different. Our waiter was excellent, but my food was not. The Chicken Scallopini was dry and tasteless. The other diners had Sea Bass and enjoyed it very much. I will return and give it another try.
We always go and have great time. Great value . Love their kale salad.
This was a great place to get together on a sunny Sunday morning for brunch. The "nature" part of our dining experience wasn't particularly cooperative as the birds wanted to make themselves known and did so three times, flying above us, dropping leaves and other bird "product". However, the staff and management were wonderfully accommodating and made the entire experience fun and unique.
Beautiful outdoor seating area although we sat inside today. The food was good, we shared small plates and a salad which were all great. We were celebrating an anniversary but were sat very closely next to 2 other tables. A bit too closely as they even congratulated us on our anniversary as they heard us discussing it. And we could hear their conversations. Would have preferred a bit more separation between tables. Otherwise fun place with great atmosphere
This is a gem...everything is fresh and delicious! Sitting outside is so wonderful and a beautiful setting. Service is over the top. Peach Bellini is incredible! Better than Venice! Truly a special place to have brunch. Will be back for sure.
Great food, highly recommend the veal and spinach raviolis. The atmosphere of the restaurant is classy and relaxing. Perfect for a date night or a Sunday lunch.
Excellent food and service - a Memorial Day treat. We ate outside which was great.
Quite delicious and plenty of food. The MD special made going especially inviting.
We had a reservation for my Husband’s birthday diner and I had specified outside seating. I think I had changed the time by 15 min for a sunset view and it must not have transferred to the change. The hostess would NOT accommodate us. So we left. The service was horrible. I was upset BC we do like the food.
Service was perfect, food excellent as always and it was quiet.
We had a great time
Everything was perfect. My guest was surprised with a desert (courtesy of Olive & Ivy) with a birthday message on the plate and a candle. Just wish the restaurant were a bit quieter. Not really quiet enough for business discussions that go beyond celebrations or social chat.
The sweet potatoe cannolini was so delicious! I love that they have lots of vegetarian options!
The food was excellent BUT the service left a lot to be desired. Our main course arrived well before we had a chance to finish our appetizer and cocktail. This is simply not acceptable. Once we got the main course, the wine was served mid-way into our meal.
I would only recommend if you are in a hurry!!!
Always excellent service and atmosphere. A little disappointed with the menu change
Olive & Ivy was an awesome dining experience! My boyfriend and I loved our food, the ambiance, and every member of the restaurant staff who helped during our visit. We will definitely be back for another meal!
This place is overpriced and overrated. Nothing but a waterfront view. Food sucks.
Best brunch spot in Scottsdale, hands down. Sit outside, order some coffee, and enjoy the beautiful view, the rumbling fountain and delicious food!
We had a flatbread pizza and a salad and they were both wonderful. We will definitely be back - service was friendly and atmosphere was great!
The food at Olive & Ivy was absolutely delicious and the service was fantastic! We loved the bread and pesto, bruschetta (all were great!) and the lasagna. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed - we will definitely be returning on our next trip to Scottsdale!
Food was outstanding. Best patio in Scottsdale. Only issue was falling leaves from trees overhead. Watch which table you are seated at.
Service was great - Landis was our server and food was wonderful. Nice dining experience.
Food was very good!
Meeting a friend. We sat outside where it was much quiterb
Excellent, attentive service. Left us alone to talk but was right there when we needed him. Food was average, I’d say. Pasta serving was very small so. My husband also ate half of. My flatbread, which was good but not great. Wine selection by the glass was really good and it was served at the right temperature.
Solid venue and great share plates.
The Sea Bass was amazing! Everyone at our table was very please with the quality of the food.
Came on a first date about a year ago...Keep coming backwith her....Food is always the same quality..great cocktails..Wait staff very attentive and professional...
The first two times I went were about a week apart..same waiter remembered us and what I ate and my drink..pretty impressive.
The location near mall and waterfront great date location..pre or post dinner walk.
Fantastic quality and delicious food at a great value! Our waiter was welcoming and knowledgeable, he was able to describe the plates in such a way that left little to the imagination, so it was easy to decide. We were there during Sunday brunch,Great portion sizes, still room for dessert! Best of all (which almost never happens when making special requests at other restaurants) I had asked for a table in a quiet location because my dad wears hearing aids...when we walked in, it was fairly loud, but they brought us to a smaller room that was perfect, intimate and beautifully decorated. My dad could keep up with the conversation! Thank you, we had a wonderful time and will be back to try out the Dinner menu!
