Last Sunday we went to Oli’s to celebrate our anniversary. It had been over a year since we’d been there, due to COVID. We had reservations for outdoor dining. Overall it was extremely disappointing. Many outdoor tables had been added. I was expecting a view of the water but instead had a view of the sidewalk and the parking lot. The very worst part was the number of tables crammed in this are. The people at the tables around were 16 inches away. We could hardly carry on conversation due to the number of people crowded in a tiny area. The service was very slow. The food was good, not great 3 lobster deviled eggs for $15, with minimal lobster...don’t bother. I can’t recommend Oli’s as long as they seat people in a setting like sardines. Sorry, pre pandemic it was a favorite!
Service very slow and things like water were not replenished. May be because it was very crowded and we were a party of 10. I may not return when we are a large party but still return for lunches and dinners with a small group only.
Delicious dining experience; relaxing and social atmosphere; wonderful service!! Our go-to place!!
The server was overwhelmed and was way too busy. There were extra items on our bill that had to be removed. My skirt steak was tiny and overcooked and overpriced...the experience was not my favorite...also our salads came out with our meal not before..timing was awful. Not sure how fast I would come back..kind of disappointed to say the least
We go here quite often, once a month at least and tonight's experience was lacking from beginning. Our recommendation is don't arrive before 5pm because they have a "shift meeting' at that time and you will wait 30 minutes just to get a beer or any drinks from bar. The manager was rude and demeaning to us when we asked for a discount for having to wait for so long. There was not a single server in sight for too much time. The hostess should have served us our drinks during the shift meeting or the server should have served them before being sequestered in the kitchen to find out the ONE special of the night. Not acceptable for a place like this.
We enjoyed Oli’s so much that we visited twice! We struggle to find restaurants we like when we visit South Florida but we were truly impressed with the menu, service and atmosphere at Oli’s. They have great outdoor space and everyone was masked and respectful.
The only problem was that they don’t honor reservations on time !
Ate outside on the side of the restaurant...they pack everyone in!
The food was excellent. We all had different entree’s. Everyone loved their choices. The service was very good but our poor waiter had just too many tables to wait on. He was running back and forth like crazy. The place was packed like sardines. It was a beautiful evening so we were very happy to have eaten outside.
First time. Love it. Service was wonderful, the atmosphere was wonderful and the food was wonderful
If you don’t mind waiting at least a half hour past your reservation you will enjoy very good food. It has become one of the in places in Boca.
We had a reservation and when we got to restaurant they seated us right way and got the table we wanted outside. Then everything went down hill. After ordering drinks it took 30 minutes to get them. Appetizers we ordered took 45-50 minutes to come out. The main course-veal chops came out at the wrong temperature. Spoke with the manager and he apologized but did not offer to make things right by deleting the veal chop off the check. Spoke to several guest at the restaurant that night and they all had similar issues.
Painfully slow service due to amateurish management, not the individual server. Oli’s refused to accept the Open Table Reward Card and the manager was unpleasant about it. This despite having made the reservation via the OpenTable reminder email about my Reward Card
Great waitress, ambiance, food
Having been to Oli's several very enjoyable times before, I was very disappointed this time. First, much to my horror the outside tables are 6 inches apart (if that) rather than 6 feet apart. If we all weren't fully vaccinated we would have left immediately. Our server was friendly but very busy which I get that the restaurants are all short staffed these days due to Covid-19. Two couples shared a salad each, which the chef was kind to spit. The beet salad and the Caprese Salads were both delicious and generous portion size. The guys each got one of the special fish dishes and enjoyed them. My friend ordered the chicken parmesan and was not thrilled, too fat and too tough. I ordered the linguine with clam sauce and contrary to the description on the menu it was devoid of garlic, shallot, pepper or flavor. The waiter never came back to check on the food until the other 3 people had already finished eating. It wasn't worth the calories so I didn't eat any of it and the waiter never asked if it was okay. I filled up on my friend's side of rice and beans. I'll give Oli's another chance next year and hope they get back to pre-pandemic quality and atmosphere.
They need more waiters. Service was very slow
Great ... enjoyable dining
Delicious meal with excellent service ! 5 stars doesn’t do it justice !
Great food and ambiance, but service is lacking. Had to ask for everything...more bread, water, extra plates, etc.Been dining here quite a while and the service never improves. And no one seems to care
I mentioned in my reservation that it was my mother in law’s 103rd birthday, and they didn’t even put a candle in her dessert.
Third time I've been in 3 months. This time we took friends for their Anniversary. They loved it!
I would go back! The section and the food was good, service was just ok.
It was supposed to be my special birthday dinner. We waited outside for 30 minutes before being seated. Certainly there was no social distancing. Our server julian worked very hard to do his best. We felt the restaurant was definitely over booked And the food which is usually delicious was overcooked. The busboy must’ve been new as He was not helpful at all. The outside seating is really lovely but when it started to storm there is no place to go and we were drenched.
Beautiful view of lake. Everyone liked their lunch
Delightful patio. Food was very good.
Arrived on time and we were shown to our seats about 10 minutes later
From the moment we sat it was apparent that the restaurant was woefully understaffed
It took 45 minutes to get our order in
The young server was very apologetic and pleasant but we waited over an hour to get our food
The bouillabaisse was very good and the tuna taco terrific but we will never return on a Thursday Friday or Saturday.
Very disappointing last night. Super crowded outside.
They sat us near two large tables celebrating a birthday and another large table. Stuck between 2 plants so patrons almost touched us each time they went to the bathroom or left the restaurant, The worst table in the restaurant!!!
They charge an extra $2.00 for more bread- really??
And $1.00 for splitting our salad without letting us know.
Really turned off and won’t be going back!!
Brought do wine who had never been and she obviously didn’t get a good impression.
Had reservation. Many people waiting in front. Hostess was extremely rude to almost anyone who approached her. Clearly overwhelmed. 4 women with a 7:00 pm reservation still waiting at 7:45. I was told they
had 600 reservations. Very hard to believe and if they did they way overbooked. A what looked to be a manager appeared who was equally rude and overwhelmed. Our third time here. Probably will not be back. Very poorly managed.
Our Martinis were warm and my pasta was cold. Signs items sat while before being served.
Waiter was very nice.
We had a 7:00pm reservation. We were told that there would be a 10-15 minute wait, which was acceptable. At 7:30, we were told that there were 4 parties in front of us. At 7:50, I asked the hostess what the problem was. She replied that they had nearly 600 reservations for the evening and were over an hour and a half backed up. We left and went to Rafina where we were seated in 18 minutes, with no reservations.
IMHO, no restaurant should accept 600 reservations for any evening. It’s greedy and shows a total lack of respect for those who wish to patronize the restaurant.
Very bad service
I took 2 friends out to lunch to celebrate their birthdays. We had a fabulous afternoon. The food was delicious, the ambience was wonderful and the service was outstanding. I have to Oli's several time before but this was my friends first time. They are already planning a return visit.
outside chair most uncomfortable., service was unusually slower than normal, but food when it arrived was wonderful.
Been going here a lot during covid always really good this time not so good service horrible food was cold and the portions were so small someone still table ordered skirt steak rare it came burnt server never came back never asked how it was brought chk with out asking for coffee or desert we were waiting to order bread pudding when brought chk we paid and left not so good felt like we were rushed and not paid attention too and trust me it’s not cheap not a happy customer
Lovely patio setting. The service was friendly and attentive. Just love their health nut salad.
The service was sooooooo poor. But the food and ambiance made up for it.
Food was excellent and ambiance was great. Service was a little slow, but I would definitely recommend the restaurant to others.
Had a 7pm reservation on a Monday night and didn’t get seated until 7:40. Outdoor area was very crowded. Our waiter took forever to arrive, we ordered wine a bottle of wine and after a 15 minute wait we were told they were out of that wine and the waiter suggested another wine which of course was more expensive. Ordered calamari and were later told they ran out of that. Ordered another calamari dish and two arrived. Had to ask the waiter twice to take the second one we didn’t order and sent back off the final bill. Both my friend and I clearly ordered a salad and a flat bread. One salad came and when the other didn’t arrive the waiter said he thought we were splitting the salad. Will not return to this restaurant.
Very enjoyable evening. Service was good and the food was excellent! We look forward to returning.
Food and service were great
We had an early dinner on Easter Sunday.
The food is very good. We had the tuna tacos which were loaded with fresh tuna! Very delicious. The beet and apple salad is also a very nice dish. I enjoyed a skirt steak while my husband had the veal chop. Very nicely presented and made well.
