Left after 30 minutes and no service. We didn't even get two glasses of water. The hostess came by once and said she'd get someone to us. After 10 more minutes with no one coming to our table and other tables around us getting service, we walked out. I don't honestly think anyone at the restaurant noticed or cared. After all, they had my contact info on the reservation and I never heard back from them.
We might give them another shot someday, but probably not worth it from what I saw.
We love Olive Leaf. Our server, Dan, was exceptional.
Had a confirmed reservation via Open Table on Easter Sunday. They apparently lost it. Came with my family on Easter and due to their negligence was turned away. Obviously next to impossible to find another good restaurant with a table on Easter Sunday. The management made no effort to accommodate the 3 of use despite their error. Looks like a nice place, but rating low due to the lack of true service and effort to correct their error.
We had brunch here, which seemed to be a sampling of many of their popular menu items... and WOW!!! Delicious, amazing and reasonably priced! Every single dish was incredible. There was live music which fit the cozy space well, not too loud. The drinks were satisfying and well priced, too. Desserts were FANTASTIC!!! Plus, the view was perfect, unblocked view of the bridge and the River! The staff was attentive and kind, "on it"!!! The sous Chef came out to talk to us and made us an extra entree that had run out for the buffet;) IMPRESSED... and will be back!
Made reservation for Easter Brunch. When we arrived, we discovered that we were NOT seated at a table, but squeezed into an area at end of Bar (being used for dessert bar). There was very little room to get into seats as they butted up to wall. And it was not possible to eat comfortably or converse with the rest of my party. The reason you pay an inflated price for an average buffet on a holiday, is the ability to make a reservation and be assured of getting a table. Whomever made the decision to use this end of bar seating for Reserved Customers had VERY LITTLE REGARD for comfort, or enjoyment of their customers.
Our second visit. Still very good food. Best to visit on a good weather day and eat outside on the patio.
Our first time here. Food and service were excellent. Will be going back soon.
We arrived on Saturday night for a 7pm reservation. We were the only ones there. Granted it was a rainy night but seemed odd. However, our group of 6 enjoyed the food and we had Dan as our waiter and he was very attentive. I am sure you have experienced bad service sometimes when a restaurant is not busy. This was definitely not the case. It was our first time there and he explained everything and made some recommendations for entrees. It would be a great place when the weather gets nice as there is a big patio. It would also be great for watching Thunder.
Their wine menu is very limited but I enjoyed the only chardonnay. Ended the meal with great desserts too.
It was worth the trip. The service, location on the water, quiet conversation, and background guitar off set the mediocre food. We would go back simply because it was a very pleasant evening.
This use to be great restaurant. This past visit the food was sub par. The potatoes had no flavor and the pork was fatty. I will think twice before giving them a second chance
Great little restaurant and very good food. A little bit on the pricey side but you cannot expect that with this atmosphere. Had a guitar player playing in the background which was not too loud. The service was great.
We went to Olive Leaf to celebrate two birthdays. The booth we sat in was cozy and the view of the river and the bridge was great. But the food did not fail. Everyone loved their entree and really enjoyed the evening. The music was also a nice touch. Will definitely go back.
Very nice menu. Mediterranean and European selection.
Great food and service and love the riverfront deck in the warmer weather!
An oasis in Jeffersonville for up scale menu/food.
Also had an incredible Thanksgiving buffet
Wonderful food, great atmosphere, outstanding service—altogether charming!
Great view and great food as always
Birthday celebration, the food was outstanding and service was top notch. The entertainment was just what we were looking for and we will return as well as our friends said they would come back as well.
Thanks Again for a wonderful experience and friendly atmosphere.
My wife and I recently had a very pleasant dinner at the Olive Leaf Bistro. Food was served hot and in a timely manner. We would recommend this restaurant to others.
We went for thanksgiving dinner and it was great. I will go back again soon just for dinner. Staff was wonderful to.
This place never disappoints, the food is tasty, the view is beautiful and the feel is nice but casual. I could go here every week for a good healthy meal.
Way overpriced for quality. I would say the dishes we ordered were $12 quality and definitely not $22. We're no strangers to $100-$200 meals, this did did not warrant the price tag. It wasn't inedible, but it definitely wasn't anything special.
Nicely diverse menu, with outstanding choices that were well prepared. Dinner coursing was managed well by our attentive but not overbearing server. Desserts were also a highlight.
Service was marginal and the food was just ok. The cost was $85 for my wife and I and the food was not very good!
There were new servers and confusion over who was serving our table so the service was delayed at the beginning. Also, the way they served the wine was was interesting. Our red wine was served in an ice bucket and uncorked before coming out to the table. Hmmm.
Always great food, romantic atmosphere and great service. Our favorite place
Was another great experience at this restaurant. Everything was absolutely awesome. One problem we had was the gratuity was added to the credit card. My mother was not made aware of it when we were presented the checks. Would have been nice to have been informed.
Food and service was great!! There must have been something wrong with the HVAC system because it was incredibly hot while we were there but overall a good experience.
Great location. The baclava was excellent!!!
The fish did not seem fresh. We both were quesy later in the evening.
Loved the setting and the ambiance.
Server seemed put out because we changed locations and was slow to provide refills. Seemed a little unprofessional for an upscale venue.
Wanted to love it but liked it. Will try one more time.
The food is quite good but maybe a bit overpriced for location. Indoor seating is organized in an odd way and doesn't maximize the river view, you are definitely indoors and we were tucked back in a corner of a separate room behind a large party even after requesting outside table. I will go back on date night but call to guarantee outside.
They did not have a reservation for us. They said we did not have one. Luckily, they had room for our party.
First time eating dinner here. Nice ambiance in the restaurant. Food was very good though a little pricey. However, the portions were a good size. Our server, Kyle, was wonderful! Very attentive with good menu recommendations for us. The sangria was tasty, the salads were fresh and the chicken dishes we had were full of flavor. We will definitely be returning to The Olive Leaf!
Went for the brunch, wasn't very good. There wasnt many breakfast options to choose from and the desserts weren't homemade; looks like they were store bought frozen, then thawed.
Waitress forgot about our table, had to go in for our bill.
Their regular menu looks wonderful, may have to go back and try the dinner menu.
We had been to this restaurant only once before this visit . . . about a year or so ago. The quality of the food has really deteriorated. There were four in our party, all selecting a different main course. And all agreed that the quality would not allow for a return visit.
First time here. Will be ack
This was a great dining experience. Our server was Robert and he was very friendly and courteous. He did a great job taking care of us on our anniversary. The atmosphere was great. The evening was not too hot so we sat outside. Traffic at times could be loud, but overall will definitely return and recommend to our friends and family.
This is one of our favorite local restaurants. The salmon is wonderful, as are many menu items, the view is beautiful. Our server, Jessie, was friendly, attentive and efficient.
Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Ted was great! Ready to go back. Food is always delicious.
All around great experience.
Got seated right away then had to wait awhile before getting any kind of attention. Our table wobbled which bugs the crap out of me. Service wasn't the worst I've every had but certainly not the best. Food was okay. Did not impress me enough to go back.
