Olive Lucy's Kitchen Table
We were there at 6:30 and it was quiet then. We sat in a very comfortable booth but tables are also available. The environment was fun with wine bottle ligths---not in a tacky way. Food and serve was great. They make a great sangria with wine provided by us. Recommend the braised short ribs. We'd definately go back again
Great service and spacious interior.
The food was mediocre. Lobster empanada had no lobster flavor and the lobster mac and cheese didn't have any lobster in it.
A side order of a vegetable was very small and none were served with the main entree nor an option of rice/potato or a noodle.
The food needs an upgrade.
We have been there many times and always a great experience. Thank you
This was my first visit and our meal was inconsistent. We ordered the meatball app and clams oregonata for the table. Meatballs were great but, we sent back the clams. The breading was mushy and bland. I ordered the clams and chorizo capellini. Delicious. One of my table mates ordered the salmon. The fish was cooked perfectly but, the mashed potatoes were tasteless and dry. The desserts were awesome and the service was stellar. I’ll try it again but will likely stick with traditional Portuguese dishes which seem to be their strength.
Ambiance was lively and we were excited to try this spot. Ordered lobster empanadas and were so overfried that could not cut with fork and knife and had to send back. Replaced with coconut shrimp that was ok but have made the same or better at my hole from a frozen box. $31 paella was below average drowning in olive oil. No crusty rice at all. Seafood did not taste fresh and not even the lobster tasted good. The scallops were the best of the 3 orders but average. Honestly the rolls that were served before the meal were delicious and the best part of the meal. Would not plan to return.
Only downside is they don’t have a cash register so if you’re paying using cash (particularly big bills) it gets a little complicated.
If it weren't for amount of loud noise, I would have rated this restaurant a 5 star. The food, service and ambiance were fantastic, but, we couldn't even hear each other speak. If you can handle the noise, I highly recommend it 😊
The food was excellent but the service was lacking. We waited an hour for our meal, they gave us the wrong appetizer, and we only saw our waiter two times! He never cleared our table and we had to constantly request enough glasses for everyone. Maybe it was an off night for him but it was definitely a hassle. Food was delicious though!
Food, ambience and service was all first rate. I highly recommend this restaurant.
We had a wonderful dinner at Olive Lucy’s! Can’t wait to return to try another dish. Love that it’s BYOB. Love the atmosphere and wait staff was very nice and helpful.
Very good food. Friendly service and reasonable pricing.
Food was great. Wait staff were friendly. Good restaurant. Would go back.
I was very pleased with the food and ambiance. Our waiter was attentive without over imposing himself upon us.
Been to Olive Lucy’s many times and this was no exception. Great service, food and experience.
Interesting menu with unique diverse choices. Everything was delicious except my cod was supposed to be blackened but could’ve used much more seasoning. Desserts excellent.
The linguini fra Diavlo was so hot it was inedible. I get that it’s meant to be hot but this was too much.
The steak was tendony and the potatoes tasted like they were deep fried with rancid fish.
We left hungry and not because the portions were small.
At the end of our visit I was asked to do an electronic survey of the waiter while sitting at the table by the manager...which I found odd. I was frank and told him the waiter was hindered by the kitchen and I didn’t want to be unfair so I declined. The manager said he’d speak to the waiter. Maybe he didn’t understand or hear me?
I think the decor, location, staff and ambiance are good. The food...not so much.
I won’t be coming back.
Excellent selection of dishes and specials. BYOB.
Wonderful restaurant. Would definitely go back! Great service, food was delicious.
The food was great and the service was outstanding!!!!
Disappointing experience, l was expecting to have Portuguese food but the food was flavorless. Doesn't seem this place tastes their food, if they did, they wouldn't serve it.
Tiny appetizers. Skip to the main
We live right around the corner and try to go as often as possible. However, the food always seems to disappoint. Ordered the Calamari Balsamico for an appetizer, which was overcooked and small... Almost comical compared to what the image on the menu makes it appear to be. It's a decent restaurant that has the potential to be amazing if they stepped it up.
Will go back but still not impressed.
Food was delicious and service was fantastic! We will be returning!
I enjoyed the entree that I ordered, Honey & Dijon Salmon, not overcooked/dry and garlic mashed potatoes but oddly enough no vegetables. The server was great and attentive, food came in a timely manner, didn’t feel rushed even though a lot of people were starting to come in. I wish they had some good authentic portuguese dishes, Morristown needs it! The advertisement says portuguese but it really is Italian food.
Exceptional experience in every aspect— food, service and atmosphere. This was my second visit and I plan to return! Thank you!
The air conditioning was broke and it was HOT!....would’ve been nice to be comped an app or drink
A little warm with the AC not working but not unbearable. Food was good but a large party seated behind us made it hard to hear our conversation.
Delicious food, nice staff, beautiful interior. We enjoyed our meal. Service was quick but not too quick.
As always, our visit to Olive's was excellent. We always order the mussels for an appetizer. The scallops were delicious. The service and the staff are always friendly, affable and efficient. We will be back for sure.
We went to Olive Lucy's on Saturday night (7/13/19) to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Andres was our server for that evening. He was fantastic and we all had a wonderful time. The food was great and the service impeccable. Andres heard us toast our daughter's birthday and brought over a cheesecake slice for her at the end of evening and he and a few other staff sang happy birthday to her. Thank you Andres and Olive Lucy!
Excellent evening at Olive Lucy's Kitchen. Service was wonderful - thank you 'Henry' :) - you took such great care of us all evening long! Food just wonderful -
It was Father’s Day. I was a bit worried because don’t usually do holidays out, but this was a pleasant surprise. Restaurant not crowded at 6pm. We were not rushed. Owner greeted us. He was extremely gracious.
It was just two of us. BYOB so we tried two amazing wines. Appetizers were good/fair. Clams oreganata had good sauce, but needed more oregano.
I ordered the fried calamari, not the one with balsamic. Thought the calamari was over fried, and too salty. Marinara sauce was odd tasting.
Caprese salad and Spinach salad were excellent.
20oz Porterhouse was well cooked MR. Decent flavor . It was served with twice baked potato (very good) and broccoli not over cooked. We had pork chop with blueberry sauce and whipped sweet potatoes. Excellent. Meat was moist, well prepared. Then we had dessert, I had red velvet lava cake, a bit dry, and the tiramisu was very good. The Father’s Day special was a 4 course prefix menu @ $54.95pp. The steak was $10.00 additional. But for the quantity and caliber of food, I felt it was a decent price.
The service was excellent.
We will probably return and try other dishes.
We were a party of 4 - dinner was great!! Service was exceptional- Would definitely recommend
Excellent. Good food and good atmosphere. Good time overall
Great service but unfortunately my seafood paella did not taste fresh
Enjoyed our dinner at Olive Lucy's. From the hostess to the waiter the service was very good. Food was very good especially our dessert. The atmosphere was terrific. We will definitely be returning.
Outstanding food, very good quality, tasty and somewhat innovative. Nice ambience and friendly service. Very much recommended. Only recommendation as a step forward would be to have a few even more traditional or ‘typical’ Portuguese dishes added.
Always a good experience! Been a bunch of times. It is a family favorite. Food is always great. And they always accommodate my dairy allergy.
We have been to this restaurant about 3 times already. This last time was a little disappointing. We had an issue with dinner. We ordered our food and literally came to us in less then 1 minute. I am being serious when I say less than 1 minute. It felt like the food was already plated before we ordered. Lost the feeling of made for me. We finished our app and meal in 40 minutes. It just didn't feel personal and that the food was already made and plated before we ordered which we did not appreciate. Probably won't come back another time.
