Love this place. Food is always fresh, servers aren’t too cool for school, drinks are great, enough selection for a person w gluten allergy. Great ambiance.

We had a group of eight on Sunday late morning. Almost all of us ordered something different, and we ALL said it was one of the best brunches of our lives. Thank you!

We had reservations for valentines day and opted to have the special at $65 a head, I don't mind spending the money for food I would normally not think was good as you would expect at a high end restaurant, however the food we received was most definitely sub-par for the price we paid. The main course was bland tasteless dry and a mess, my beef brisket was flavorless, fatty and dry. My wife was also not impressed with the game hen as it was greasy and flavorless, we both agreed the the $5 rotisserie chicken from Costco was much more moist and flavorful than the 1/2 hen she received. Don't get me wrong, the food was totally edible, just not nearly as good as other restaurants I have spent 1/2 the money to get food that amazed me. The host and waiter were both very friendly and compensating despite the medical emergency occurring at the bar. We had to sit by the front door despite making reservations weeks in advance. I don't feel we went to overboard with drinks but somehow ended up with a bill for nearly $250 for a meal I would expect from Dennys, very much not impressed. My wife has now suggested next year we get a sitter for our 3 kids to vacate the house for valentines day since we can make much better food in our kitchen for a fraction of the cost; which is a bummer for me because I enjoy eating out when the food is good. I am not sure how our bill got to be what it was but I typically pay $100 less and get AMAZING food (with drinks). Furthermore the bathroom is shared with multiple businesses and not kept to the standard you would expect at similarly priced restaurants. I would not recommend this restaurant due to the poor food quality and lack of character.

We had reservations at the bar, and once seated we enjoyed our meals, and we enjoyed watching the kitchen hustle, but we stood waiting to be acknowledged at the host/hostess stand for well over five minutes with several servers passing us by without a hint of recognition that we were standing there waiting. The bar setting was very tight too - the seat comfort was fine, but the elbow room was null and void.

This was our second visit to Olympia Provisions SE while visiting our son who lives in Portland. The French Charcuterie board was excellent followed by the freshly baked focaccia bread. The wild mushroom cavatelli was so flavorful and the Black Cod preparation was creative and savory. They have an excellent wine list to accompany dinner.

I always enjoy coming here. The food is creative, changes often enough that you don't get bored with the selection, and the staff will encourage my behavior. I wasn't particularly hungry when I arrived so I had one of the smaller boards. It was marvelous.
The food is great.
The staff is friendly.
The drinks are well crafted.

The cocktails, service and most of the food were excellent. However the place could use a good cleaning and a bit of reorganization. We sat at the bar and watched the chef work. The amount of wasted motion and unnecessary steps were breathtaking. When we were there it was relatively quiet and our food took a while to arrive. I can only imagine what happens when this place gets busy.

We ordered a charcuterie plate because they make many of the items there and that's what they're known for so... we had to. Additionally, we got the squash dish and the black cod. Everything was delicious. The squash surprisingly was my favorite. The cod was my second favorite. Really good flavors.

The charcuterie boards were missing key elements that you would expect with any board. I understood their attempt to group the boards by flavor profiles, but we got the Chef selection plus the 5 cheese board and were disappointed in the selection and pairing of items.

Our server was unintentionally rude and awkward. For example, she would walk by and drop off drink menus mid conversation without asking if we wanted another drink. She went long periods without checking on us, then over compensated by checking in several times within 10 minutes.

Lastly, I ordered the lamb entree and was very disappointed because it was extremely fatty, completely overcooked and dry, and looked like it has been prepared in a crockpot all day without any attention. When the server came by to ask about the food, my date replied instinctively that theirs was good, and then the server left before I got to reply and express my disappointment with my entree.

When I flagged down the server to let her know we were done, she didn’t ask why I didn’t touch my plate. I feel like if you see an entire plate untouched, you should definitely inquire.

Also, we asked about a dessert I saw on the prix fixe menu that I wanted to see if it was possible to check with the kitchen if they had any extra. She immediately responded with no, which is fine, but she didn’t attempt to ask and didn’t reply cordiality.

It was a very disappointing meal, which we spent $180 on. I would not return and would not recommend this restaurant to others.

Food is always great. We had to wait for our reservation at 2pm in a Sunday and then it took forever to get our food. Service was non existent—she basically ignored us unless we needed something which she had to be flagged down for. Been here multi times before and never had this problem so I’m hoping it was a fluke.

Outstanding service and our waiter was exceptionally knowledgeable about the menu options. We had a group of 7 of us and we just had our waiter bring out what he thought would work - simply stated: he did awesome.

Nice atmosphere. Fun, high quality share plates and a fantastic place for catching up with friends with unique food plates.

This was our first time dining at OP and we were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance and service.

To start, we tried the Spanish board and loved every bit of it (highly recommend), we also tried (and enjoyed) the house pickled egg (the pickled veggies it came with were also great). We chose the roasted delicata for our veggie dish and it was a treat - sweet, tiny bit spicy, fresh and full of flavor. Our only vice was that it was a tad too sweet.

For our main course I had the seafood stew and my husband had the lamb shoulder. My dish was full of flavor and the seafood was perfect. The lamb dish was just okay for the price, the meat was a little dry and there were bits of I think pork belly on the plate that were over the top salty, which didn’t help the moisture levels.

We will definitely visit again to try more (all) of the boards, small plates and starters, unfortunately, the large plate we chose didn’t live up to the price tag, but our overall experience was good and we left satisfied and happy.
