Mediterranean
Modern market and dining concept highlighting the influence of Greek products on Mediterranean cuisine. Mediterranean cuisine is rooted in an archipelago of magical vistas but rocky soil; where folks that could grow little more than herbs and olives were compelled to build ships to trade what little their soil brought forth. The resulting market for herbs and olives used in food, medicine, ritual and cosmetics— created a network of Greek trading nodes that stretched across the Mediterranean and beyond. The spirit of this history lives on in the prominence of herbs and olives in tapas, cicchetti, meze and other small plate cultures of contemporary Mediterranean nations. We work with our partners to bring you artisanal products true to the gastronomic traditions of these salt- and sun-kissed lands; in a culinary testament to those traders, philosophers, cooks, scientists, artists, bakers, bankers and rogues; who set sail from enchanted shores, with little more than herbs and olives.

Great food. Glass of wine for my date and a draft beer for me. Salads and appetizers were wonderful and entrees were served hot and were plenty of food. No perceived negatives here and concur with all the prior reviews. We will be back!!

We love dining in Herb&Olive. The place transports you to another place which we all could use with all the travel limitations. We love all their food! It leaves you full and yet light so you can continue with you day.

I made reservations for my husband and I to celebrate his birthday. We had such a memorable experience; the staff was wonderful from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. Our waiter was helpful and gave us recommendations for food and drinks upon request. And after stuffing our faces with a variety of apps and entrees, and having to decline on desserts, the staff brought us a plate of complementary desserts and sang my husband happy birthday. The restaurant has a casual yet intimate/romantic vibe. We adored the staff and enjoyed the food. We left with smiles on our faces and will most certainly be going back again and again.

There was only one waiter and he had too many table to take care of so the service was very slow. I can't fault him, but there should have been an additional person serving the tables

The place is very bright and feels like a cafeteria. The waiter seemed overwhelmed, and was a one man show. Had to make drinks and serve. It took 15 minutes or more for us to even place our orders.
But the food was fresh and delicious. I will likely keep it in mind for a lunch spot in the future.

Servers were amazing! Helpful and kind. Food was delicious. Organic salmon was delicious if cooked slightly too much - although my husband thought it was cooked perfectly. The accompanying roasted potatoes were cooked perfectly and were deliciously seasoned. The blackened broccoli and cauliflower was a little undercooked and not really blackened but it was very tasty. The lentil soup was amazing as well. Finally, we left before we had desert so the gave us a small box of cookies because we were celebrating my birthday! A great experience.

We were surprisingly impressed by this new and inconspicuous establishment, right along Plandome road in Manhasset NY. The restaurant sits behind their grocery area, behind stacks of imported olive oil from Greece.
The appetizers, main dishes and desserts were superb, the server a pretty Greek girl tended to the 6 of us with efficiency and detail you can’t compare.

Always excellent food! The octopus, roast lamb and lamb chops are delicious. Great friendly service too with such great products in the market area. I love the melamakarona and tahini cookies. And the pites (spinach,yogurt or cheese-even the vegan one!) are very good. Just like home made.

We found a gem. Not only a beautiful market offering unique Greek specialties, their own luscious infused oils, and imported delicacies, but cooking and serving a creative menu of tasty dishes. During Covid we were treated to an open front window area, and well spaced tables elsewhere. Then on another visit we took our tasty lunch across the street to a delightful picnic area. We keep going back to re-stock our home, but always stay for a satisfying meal. Last time we brought friends, and they were as elated as we were. We've loved several of their sandwiches and salads. Looking forward to going there for dinner. Owned and operated by a charming, involved lady who has a passion for her food.
