Great service, ambiance and food alternatives. The restaurant is a nice surprise. Very knowledgeable waiters. Good wine alternatives at reasonable prices. The menu has good appetizers. The main dish portion very was large. The dessert ordered (key lime pie) was so-so and needs improvement.
I have recommended to friends and will return!

We were celebrating our anniversary that evening
Unfortunately the waiter was not familiar with the menu
He had to leave and come back every time to answer our questions regarding the menu
Also he would hover waiting for us to make a decision
We felt pressured and ended up having to leave with just the appetizers ordered
It is a shame as I had been there before and had enjoyed it
But it has definitely declined in service and in selection of food

Muy buena comida y ambiente. Pero la realidad esperaba un menú más Mediterráneo como prometen. Pero a pesar d esto todo estuvo buenísimo

The restaurant is coming back from a closing period due to C19. Alll was excellent but the new waiters need some more training. They need to offer the dishes of the day and follow up the quality of the food once ordered. Small details but important.
I have visited the place many times and the service was impecable. Some adjustments needed now with new people.

We met up with a local friend who works nearby. She had told us her boss had gone there several times and told her the portions were small and the prices were high. We found neither of those opinions matched our experience. Each of us thought our entree was very good. Our waiter was also good, and the prices reasonable.

Mi primera visita fue en Nochebuena y de seguro regresaré! Excelente servicio, ambiente agradable, sencillo pero elegante. Algunos platos en el menú me parecieron un poco caros pero lo que pedimos estuvo delicioso y las porciones muy razonables.

We have been to L’olivo several times and had a great time. But, on this last ocasión, we had to leave without having dinner as we waited for an hour and our waitress only came to the table once. The food is usually great when you get the service to actually order.

Started with the “Cuban” bruschetta that was fun. For entrees we all had seafood including the salmon, the mixed seafood with a Mediterranean tomato- lemon sauce with rice and I had the special mixed seafood with cous cous. Mine came out a a few moments later than the others so Carlos compted me a glass of wine...unnecessary but very much appreciated. The dinners were all delicious and the background noise was so quiet that we could actually enjoy our conversation! Thank you!

The monk fish was cold although the beans and the sauce where excellent.
The risotto with lobster was excellent.

Excellent. I like quiet places, maybe with very soft music in a far background. The table next to me started talking in the cel phone with the speaker on and that was bothersome. The waiters should be empowered to ask clients in a nice manner to go outside for telephone conversations. Or a sign should be placed in the front door: “telephone conversations are not allowed in the dinning room”. Or implement the two. It was the only low light. Else, an excellent place and I will repeat.
