Food was great and service was friendly. However, it took about an hour and fifteen minutes for the food to come out after being ordered. Many other tables had sat down after we had ordered and were done eating before our food was delivered.

Neighborhood gem! If you're in the mood for Greek food this is a small family own place with generous portions of deliciousness! Very reasonable prices, friendly service, cozy sitting area inside as well as outside.

Greek salad was good but small. Lamb meatballs were good but I'd prefer no olive oil on top of tzaziki. They should have served the salad before the hot food, but it came afterwards. Nice back patio.

Our first visit to this most welcoming space. The white washed brick makes a warm and comforting space. And we really enjoyed the food. The pita that comes with olive oil and salt is wonderful . It we couldn’t resist 3 appetizers... lamb meatballs with Tzasiki were quite tast. We had two spreads to eat more pita... Smokey eggplant and favs bean. Entrees were the grilled prawns... like mini lobster tails and short ribs. Really wanted dessert but was just too stuffed. We had a nice Sauvignon Blancto wash it all down. Good service by several energetic young women.

I'm a visitor to the Boca area and always looking for new dining experiences. I found the Oliv Pit through an online search and given that it was already 4 pm on a Saturday, was delighted that we were able to get a reservation at our preferred time. The restaurant is in the middle of a large strip center (as are many places in that part of FL) and has a lovely outdoor area. The weather was beautiful the evening we went there, so we opted to sit outside. As they only serve beer and wine for alcoholic beverages, there is no bar. The menu options are fairly standard Greek and mediterranean food, and they have a nice varied menu. We ordered a few starters, and the portions are large enough where you could order just a few of those and one of their amazing-looking salads and it would be more than enough for dinner. We opted for their house Cabernet (very nice), the smoked eggplant dish, grilled octopus and lamb meatballs. All were delicious and our server mentioned that the chef was experimenting with the eggplant and added a few new ingredients. It was served with warm pita wedges (which are also provided with delicious Greek olive oil at the start of the meal). There are many other starters, salads and entrees--one thing that caught my eye was a mixed grill for 2, only $39. The only issue with service that we encountered was that once we were finished and ready to leave, we had to wait quite awhile before our server brought our check and resolved our bill. Other than that, the service was good. Well worth the visit and I look forward to going back to sample some of their other dishes.

Distinctive dishes on this visit were the fried feta appetizer and the grilled prawn entree. Looking forward to our next visit.

The wood and windows ambiance is very comfortable. The service was eager but not great. The platter we ordered didn't arrive with what was on the menu (it was described as having chicken breast which didn't arrive until we pointed it out to the server), the distribution of meats VERY heavy on gyro... and not as expected, and the jasmine rice was too sticky. The reason we chose the meat platter was because it seemed to have a good portion of chicken for one of us and steak for the other. We also requested that the steak be put on a separate plate -- which didn't happen. Overall, the steak was fatty and the meat generally salty. Given my previous delightful experience there for dessert, this was a disappointing meal.

We had a 95 th birthday party for my mom forb8 people Saturday 11/17. The food was good the appetizers extraordinary. Service was good and waiter made good recommendation with both food and wine .

My only recommendation is on the lamb dishes the patrons should be given choice of plain or salt pepper and garlic added . As is their custom lamb is prepared without any additional spice.

Disappointed. We usually go to Greek Island and wanted to try this restaurant. For more money we were given a small Greek salad with one piece of feta not four. We are used to a great salad that can feed 4. The grilled calamari were tasteless without any signs of the grill on them. The only thing everyone loved was the chocolate mousse cake. Would really like a great Greek restaurant in the neighborhood.

Fabulous meal with great service. The owner and staff were wonderful. Maybe the best Greek food we have had outside of Greece. All is totally authentic, thoughtful, caring, and fun. Don't be put off by reviews complaining about prices and no discounts for snowbirds. Portions are more than ample. The fried calamari, gyros, lamb burger, and cheese with olives are incredible.
