Disappointed in the food quality as it has gone downhill since my last visit over a year ago... not worth $85 for 4 small tapas meals (no alcohol). Beautiful location

We loved the sharing plates. It was hard to decide what not to order! The Oysters Rockefeller were so flavourful. The muscles were in a delicious sauce. The scallops 3 ways were all good! Next time we’ll have a shrimp dish in place of the deviled eggs. We ended lunch with a cheese tray. I can’t wait to go back!

This was by far the best experience from Niagara on the lake. Everything about this restaurant was amazing. The food was an explosion of taste and the meat was perfectly cooked . Hats of to the chef Moses and our server Alejandro was very welcoming, helpful, pleasant and friendly. Truly recommend this restaurant .

Broad menu, well executed.
The Caprese was fine. The gambas al ajillo were clever with the roasted paprika sauce that i finished with a spoon. The mussels were also excellent. Service was spot on, especially given that this was day 2 after shutdown. Wine markups were restrained. Pleasant surroundings next to the vineyard

We walked in and were very welcomed by a Gentleman and lady( realized they were the Wine store people so very friendly btw). And were told to enter at the Oliv entrance and upon entering saw three people at the Bar( one guy bustling and two standing hovering) and what was a lady I am guessing is the Hostess or Manager idk had face shield on lifted up with young girl I assume training with her. Two older ladies ahead of us that she the Hostess was very preoccupied with. When she took them to their seat she came back told us she needed to squirt our hands. I said we did at entrance and she snapped back “we are separate businesses okay”. Thats fine squirt away.

((For the record I work as a Manager myself at a very Busy location and there with my husband only and I get polices, politeness and most importantly customer service and we are here for our Anniversary as well as local people.))

Our server was ok not great just ok. We do not know her name but we do know Alejandros who btw was spectacular with his guests each and everyone who btw asked their feedback on that complimentary rose champagne who also explained everything so well and with enthusiasm. We loved it but were not asked.

I personally loved my lobster fettuccine absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Amazing! Husband said all he tasted was the mustard on his Cubano (which he has had many times and loved). The app we chose was bruschetta and the toast was too loud crunching in such a quiet spot and not enough red pepper, I cut the last one so it was enough for last three pieces.

Honestly guys I want to say I loved the experience but I didn’t. I feel like we got brushed off as if we were tourists or something. Did I complain about anything to in person nope I did not because I am not looking for freebies and I know it was the 2nd day open but you know, That Alejandro rocked, our server did just ok ran the motions nothing special and I think it will be a long time before I go back.

My wife and I have been dining at Olive for 2 years and count it as one of the best in Niagara Region.
Our last dinner was on the outside patio and for my wife's birthday.
Everything was great and the food was excellent as usual

I can't remember our servers name, but he was amazing. So friendly, welcoming and helpful. I recently started eating gluten free and he brought me a little plate of olives instead of the bread to start. Such a sweet touch. Can't wait to come back!

Had another excellent meal at OliV. Greek Lamb pops were very good.
They were using their take out menu for the dining room, but still lots of choices on the menu and the prices were good.
Thanks

great value for money but there is not much of an atmosphere. really interesting cocktails and apps were great. mains were well executed. service was okay - not amazing but with cost cuts due to COVID the server was also the bartender and had 4 tables ordering at the same time so they did the best they could.

The place is lovely, they had everyone spread out to accommodate the Pandemic. The food choices were limited due to pandemic so that was disappointing - the food was fair for the price. Wine was moderate.

Decent Restaurant a little off the beaten track from the crowds in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The homemade Fettucine with lobster and asparagus was excellent and I am very picky about my Italian food. The stuffed mushrooms with crab were very tasty. I only wish there were more than five on the plate. The pizza was flavourful and the toppings were great and plentiful but if you like a firmer crust this is not for you. They also have a little boutique where you can purchase olive related dishwater and olive oils. I would go back and maybe try some other dishes.

The food, view and service incredible. Thank you Michelle for the great service :) We had crab stuffed mushrooms, the Winter Charcuterie board as our apps both were amazing! Entrees we highly recommend the lobster and asparagus fettucine...creamy and light and filled with lobster, my husband had the filet mignon tips seasonal veg....AAZING!! No room for dessert but we did enjoy Strewn Cab Sauv!! We will be back for both the olive oil and for dinner!

Loved it! Food was delicious and trying all the different olive oils and balsamic vinegars with the bread was the biggest surprise of the meal! My favourite part surprisingly, they all tasted delicious.

Thanks for the great experience!! Looking forward to returning next time I'm in NOL, 100% recommend

Was not satisfied with the food, beverages, and service. Kitchen undercooked the dish my partner ordered. Sent it back and they decided not to re fire the salmon just tossed the same one that was brought to the table on the grill... poor experience.

I Love the Oliv Tapas Bar & Restaurant!! The cuisine and service are to die for. The ambiance of the restaurant is normally alive and exciting. Due to COVID restrictions on capacity, the usual, totally awesome ambiance of the restaurant wasn’t quite there. A post COVID party will remedy that!! This restaurant has the best chefs in the world!!

I miss the old menu, so I didn't enjoy my pizza as much as I used to, they don't have the salad anymore that I always ordered, so I had an app but didn't care for it, also the bread was so stale, not like usual. We didn't like the dessert, which is rare. However, hubby's soup and lamp pops were excellent as usual.
