We had a wonderful dinner at Olympia Oyster Bar! We sat at the bar and had a great time. We shared the Olympia Platter which was perfect for two people. The mussels, ceviche and trout conserva were notable. The oysters were delicious as well. We can't wait to go back!
We had a wonderful Mother's Day there. We were lucky to get a last minute reservation. Everything was fresh and delicious! The wine flight paired well with everything and we have such an amazing time. Even my 11 year old tasted everything; she especially loved the cheese platter. Hope to get back for date night soon!
Always fun to try the different oyster options. Like the specials and great ceviche. Nice wine selection- had the orange grape style. Would recommend with confidence!
An incredibly great dining experience. We arrived at 4 and stayed until 6:30. Happy hour is very generous and there is a great selection of oysters. We also enjoyed the butter leaf salad; perfect with a soft boiled egg and croutons. The dessert was to die for; the lightest creme brûlée ever, offered over fresh strawberries and blueberries.
We really enjoyed the variety of fresh oysters!
Great place for the family with tapa style servings gave us an opportunity to try many dishes. Service was awesome!
A kitchen with a deep respect for ingredients, but who would have thought a seafood house would put out such a fine mushroom entree? Would've been happier if we could have gotten oysters per piece, but a minor quibble. Fine service from Hannah, too.
Went here on a Saturday afternoon and enjoyed their Portland Dining Month selections. The oysters were prepared three ways and all were fresh and good. The ceviche for the second course was good but not my favorite as far as ceviches go. The last course, mussels and clams in garlic butter sauce were also good. Their oysters are their specialty and they were great. The person who helped us select our wine was extremely informative on picking something that we both would enjoy, that would pair well, and in telling us the origins of the label.
Drove up from Eugene to meet my daughter for Saturday lunch date. Food and service was fantastic! Our server was both friendly and helpful. Creative oyster menu, and they were all superb! Great wine/bubbly pairing to go along with the meal. The smoked goat butter that was served with the bread is so good! Who needs bread. Very reasonably priced. Casual neighborhood location.
The service was great! We went in for the March Dinning and portion was good. We enjoyed our meals and had ordered the Tues special Oysters Plate as well and was not disappointed.We arrived almost an hour early for our 7.30 reservation and was sat immediately.
We ate here for March dining so it was affordable.
The service is great we'll go back for oyster Tuesday.
Private seating or having booths as an option would enhance the experience.
The oysters were excellent. The spices that the chef attend were out of this world. We tried it for the first time with Portland Dining Month and definitely worth every penny and more. The mussels and clams were cooked in a red spicy broth which brought such great flavor to the seafood. The broth itself was good on it's own. The ceviche was very flavorful and a great sharing dish. We will definitely come back.
This was our first time here! Being a foodie and my boyfriend being obsessed and picky with his oysters. Nothing compares to Elliot’s in Seattle for them so when we heard they had oysters and one of the best we had to try! Our waitress that night sOooo awesome! Super helpful and I’m glad we went with her suggestions! We got one portland dining month, sea board, prawns! And the barrel X wine for myself. It was so good! And we just found out that they have happy hour ?! We will definitely be back soon! Thank you for a great experience Olympia oyster bar!!
We always enjoy dining here. Our server, Simon, was knowledgeable and attentive. He looked like he enjoyed what he was doing and we enjoyed him. The food was well presented and extremely delicious. After the three set courses, we proceeded to get another dozen of those wonderful Olympia oysters, some grilled shrimp, and a pear creme brulee. We will be back!
Loved it. Went for Portland Dining Month. I hadn't really seen the menu. Didn't realize it was basically all shell fish, much of it raw. Great wine list for oysters, ceviche and clams/mussels. Would HIGHLY recommend if you love oysters and shellfish. Excellent selection. No frills. Down to earth. Relaxed environment.
I went for Portland Dining Month and the value was great for the type of food it was! I really enjoyed the oysters.
Had friends in town and just had to bring them here. We have never been disappointed and definitely wasn’t this time. Simon our server is so knowledgeable and such a nice guy he made the experience great. Highly recommend to everyone.
The oysters were, as expected, wonderful. While I prefer my oysters plain, maybe with a squish of lemon and salt, the aguachile was phenomenal. Light, cucumber-y, fresh and delightful. It was tasty and a great compliment to the oyster itself. My 8 year old was sufficiently impressed to eat multiple. :-) Their bucket of shellfish didn't disappoint either. Wine list - and by the glass choices - were good; the beer and cocktail menu was good. Our server made great recommendations for our drinks. Service was friendly and great, if not a bit slow (but the good kind of slow where you have everything you need and they kind of just leave you alone with your date). We will come back.
Went for the Month of March Dining offer. Came away appreciating the waitress help with wine and food selections that capped a wonderful evening. Highly recommend the Olympic Oyster Bar!
Amazing food and even better service. Had an amazing time. Would definitely go again
Food was good but overpriced. Good ambiance. Server was busy and messed up my drink order. I would not come back
Took a friend to dinner. The food was excellent as well as the service. Highly recommendable
Food and staff at this place are first rate. The service is terrific. They do limited things superbly and don't try to be all things to all people.
I've been here twice; The 1st was a rare date night with my partner, the food was great more expensive than I would pay again but the seafood was so fresh and really imaginative. The 2nd was for Portland dining month, it was outstanding. We did some add on and got drinks the total was still a great price for what we got. Everyone that worked there were so kind and friendly hard workers. I honestly might go again for the special this month because I can't stop thinking about how great the experience was.
This was our second time, and it was very good. Very charming and comfortable atmosphere. Great variety and the dressed oyster options were unbelievable. We had a great time!
Our dinner was delicious. The seafood stew was the best I’ve ever had. We will definitely be back.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Interesting preparation of oysters and great drinks!
Oysters are delicious with the help of our server Kim . She knows her product well including the wine to pair with the food. Such a delight and fun experience to introduce my date to fine dining without the stuffiness or attitude of great device followed by perfect oysters!
Our first time eating here. The food was amazing. We loved the dressed oysters, the drinks and the atmosphere. Our server Jonna was amazing. She was fun, courteous and real.
Awesome Simon was great
Always a great experience!
The food, preparation and presentation were excellent. Service was pretty good.
Amazing oysters a really thoughtful wine list, amazing olives, bread and goat milk butter.
This restaurant is fantastic. I haven’t had a plate I didn’t think was incredible. Our server had great wine recommendations as well.
Our favorite place for a wide variety of the freshest oysters. We enjoy all the preparations of the oysters as well as the ceviche options. The cocktail menu is also a favorite.
We had a wonderful dinner - oysters, mussels, and clams along with a beautiful bottle of wine.
The seafood was fresh and delicious, and the service was amazing.
Hot tip: they have a happy hour, and on Wednesdays, they have other specials, too!
This has become one of our favorite spots. The food is always fresh. There is always interesting items. The staff knowledgeable and friendly. And the best oysters I’ve ever had anywhere.
The food is delicious!!Had a good Happy Hour selection .
