The food at Olive Pit is always great. We have eaten here several times. Try the fried feta cheese with honey so good. Also the grilled Prawns are a favorite of ours.

Horrible experience. We have been to this restaurant many times in the past and it was great. This time it was a disaster. First off no gluten free pita available. We ordered the octopus and it came out over cooked with some gross capers that were shriveled up. To top it off the bring us our check before we even get our dinners.
Come to find out they were sold and this was the first night for the new owners. Will never go back. Heard the “manager” arguing with a customer about her lamb chops being cooked incorrectly.

We have been to dinner here several times and strong management led to impeccable service and dining. We did not see the owner manager tonight . We entered from the rear entrance and missed the sign out front looking for help. Everyone was new. The management has changed hands. They had no wines from the wine list. Anything they had was a leftover and tasted like one. We were not offered a taste of the bottle before it was poured. The bread never came. Two main entrees came so late the other diners had finishedThe tables had no condiments, salt or pepper. The dishes we once savored were unattractive in presentation. The waitress did comp the late last served dish. The new manager never came over. Everyone deserves an off night without a brutal on line review, This establishment had to many blemishes to receive that mulligan.
.open table should let us all know if management and the staff have changed. Go elsewhere until the new owners figure out how a restaurant should be run

Tonight we experienced the lamb chops at the Oliv Pit with a traditional Greek Salad and a side order of Greek Lemon Potatoes. The tomatoes were so fresh that they tasted as though they were picked as we entered the restaurant. The lamb chops were expertly grilled to our liking (medium rare) and seasoned to perfection.

On a busy Saturday night, the mood was energetic as the servers raced through the restaurant delivering piping-hot food to each table. With every grilled entree made to order, we were amazed at how fast the main entrees were delivered to our table. To top off a terrific meal, we had freshly made Baklava dripping with honey.

We can't wait to return!!!

The Oliv Pit offers the best authentic Greek food in Boca Raton. Off the beaten path, this restaurant is certainly worth a visit. We visit at least once, or twice weekly (this was my wife's 3rd visit this week) for our fill of Greek food. The Olive Pit is similar to the Greek restaurants in the Plaka section of Athens or in the numerous island villages. The grilled food is cooked to perfection and the fresh pastries cap off the meal.

We made last-minute reservations at Oliv Pit on a Saturday night, not really knowing what to expect. The atmosphere is casual and friendly, but the food was absolutely AMAZING. Every one of us loved what we ordered. The prawns were magnificent - and the calamari was the best we've ever had. Service was very nice, too. Thank you for a lovely evening - we will be back!

The best-grilled prawns in Florida, almost everybody boils lobster and large prawns in the US, this is the real Mediterranean recipe, great taste, don't miss it.

The Grilled Octopus may have been the most tender and flavorful we have ever eaten.
The Baklava is the best we've eaten since we went to Greece.
There is a very Greek feel to the Oliv Pit.

Can't travel to Greece? Enjoy authentic Greek food with many items made to order here in Boca. We discovered this restuarant about three weeks ago and we've already been back 4 times. From tender Octopus to awesome Lamb Chops to huge platters of assorted grilled meats, we thoroughly enjoy the Oliv Pit.

The food was good. The service was poor, the staff was disorganized, no one came to our table for almost 20 minutes. We had to inquire about our waiter. Once we placed our order the food was served in a reasonable amount of time. The staff was polite, they just seemed very inexperienced. The restaurant needs to invest some time in training their staff!!

The noise level made it difficult for normal conversation. Only wine & beer is served. The spinach pie was acceptable but not note worthy. The lamb chops which I ordered medium rare were overcooked & dry. Sent them back & after 15 minutes - & finding the waiter to ask what happened to them - they were again well done. They're thin to begin with so I just suffered thru themn since I was on a date. Service was terrible!! There's no ambiance & one of the worst meals I've eaten in the Boca/ Delray Beach area!!
DON'T GO!!!!!!

Please be advised that the rating are from a previous reservation.
This restaurant is CLOSE on MONDAYS!!!!!! maybe just in the summer.
We arrived - following an email confirmation - to find locked doors.
The evening was ruined since we had to look for another restaurant - late in the evening.

Remember - don't go on MONDAYS!!!

THE MEAT PLATTER COMES WITH TZIKI AND PEPPER HUMMUS. WE DIDN'T KNOW THAT AND ORDERED IT AS AN APPETIZER. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER EXPERIENCE IF WAITER TOLD US THAT. OTHER THAN THAT, THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND WE SAT OUTSIDE TO AVOID THE NOISE INSIDE.

We were immediately greeting by a beautiful and charming person by the name of Soula who happens to be the executive manager. We told her we love Greek food and she replied you are in the right place. We were seated and were given the menu to review. Soula was very helpful and introduced Alexandra who also assisted us with our menu selections. Every item we ordered was fresh and expertly prepared. The sesame seed feta cheese was an epicurean surprise and unexpected treat. The whole time we were there we received attention and all our questions were answered. This is a "go to" place and the interior is fresh and welcome. You can easily imagine that you are actually in Greece enjoying an upscale dining experience. We were so pleased with our food that we ordered too much and needed to take home the remainder. That night we enjoyed a second round of Oliv Pit at home imagining we were still in Greece. What a great first time experience!
