The interior was dated and noisy. The food was fine - well executed but not overly flavourful or interesting. Our server seemed to have very little knowledge of the wine.

Had a fantastic dinner with our family who were visiting us for the weekend! Everything from the service, food, wine and their incredible balsamic and oils not to forget the bread… oh the bread… so good! The covered patio is where you want to find yourselves overlooking the beautiful property when visiting this Niagara gem 🥰

We sat on the patio and the view and ambiance was lovely. The food was amazing - the tapas and the entrees were excellent. And the highlight was service provided by Justin - he was so kind, fun and just great overall.

We had outdoor seating but were served extremely late that we were eating in the dark aside from light coming from inside. The outdoor solar lights are not enough. Really dampened the mood since I couldn’t see what I was eating. Mosquitoes also all over the place since we ended up eating late due to service. Food was alright. The garlic pizza has a sweet sauce with a hint of garlic. Not what I was expecting. The shrimp and bruschetta and caprese salad were extremely good. The veal nothing to write home about.

While the food and wine were delicious and well-presented, it was not outstanding. The server was polite, friendly and efficient. However, our experience was negatively impacted by a very noisy and downright rude table of 8 (we dined inside and should have obviously switched to the patio) who did a lot of yelling, hooting and used profanity liberally. They were clearly inebriated and enjoying themselves, but it was almost impossible to carry on a conversation between the 4 members of our table. I think it was or should have been the responsibility of the host or hostess of the restaurant (not sure who that was or if they were in attendance that evening) to make sure that diners acted with a certain decorum while at their establishment. Without that negative experience that evening, we would have considered returning to the restaurant, however now I doubt that we will do so.

Service was distracted and took far too long for every order. Food was excellent but was far too long in between for a true tapas experience.

Our second visit to Oliv in a month. Overall, Oliv did not disappoint. We enjoyed our stay on the patio both times. We were socially distant and contact traced, so we felt safe to dine there. Food, especially the tapas, is a little bit pricey. But the presentation and quality of the food is always top notch. The use of local ingredients, spices, fruit, chutneys etc are very inventive and worth exploring. One thing to note. We were seated at 1:30 pm and our food did not arrive until 2:10 pm. We get that restaurants can be short staffed, especially in the kitchen and that our meal, antipasto board and shrimp tapas, is labor intensive, and there are adjustments to be made with both the indoor and patio facilities now open. We may be back in the fall and hope this issue has been ironed out. Beautiful setting. Like the bread served with signature Oliv products.

The food was delicious. We dined on the patio and it was lovely. We were disappointed that the restaurant did not have any oysters, even though it was on the menu and the wait staff was not aware that it was not available.

Great experience at Oliv at Strewn! Service was exceptional and food was great. Late reservations mean fewer diners but a bit buggy on the patio. Lovely views. Would return in a heartbeat. Thanks!

We had a great time, our server Katie was so friendly and attentive. Our food was delicious! Dessert of Creme Brûlée wasn’t very good, all 3 of us agreed it was subpar. Dinner and appetizers were excellent though.

Patio is pleasant and shaded.
Food was good but nothing special and a bit overpriced for portions. At table service was awesome.
A bit disappointed by lack of service when we went to purchase the balsamics after our lunch.

I booked this for our 15th Anniversary. Pulling into the parking lot there are no signs indicating where the restaurant even is. When we went in it took some time to get our seats. The patio was very pleasant with the surrounding trees etc, however the iron chairs and tables were very uncomfortable. Our server did come right away with water and then said that she would come back after we looked at the menu but did not offer to take our drink order which is customary and then we waited almost 15 minutes before she returned. The food was very good but nothing fantastic. No mention was made of our anniversary at all. (other places will leave a little card or give you sparkling wine or write on your plate etc.) Service was overall slow (not meaning the pace of the dinner but removing plates etc.) I had to stop her to ask for another glass of wine and with the price of that meal for the two of us I frankly expect better. We likely will not return. I should also mention that I have spend years "secret shopping" fine dining restaurants and hotels so I do have a lot to compare it to.

The sea food chowder was totally amazing! Based on my numerous dining experiences at this restaurant, all of their soups are award winning! After this appetizer, I enjoyed their Mediterranean pizza. It comes loaded with feta cheese and artichokes! Very yummy!! The service and ambiance are excellent!! I highly recommend this restaurant!!
