Excellent food and service! Special shout out to our server, Peter!
We were delighted with our evening. The setting, on the patio, we delightful. It was quiet and we were able to hear each other easily. Our server was attentive and responsive.
Overall it was a delicious and delightful evening. I highly recommend it. We will return.
Dinner after the spa. Deliscious and great menu
Great service, staff was extremely friends and the food was spectacular. I would for sure go back the next time I’m in the area.
OLiV was a great find. Located at Strewn Winery, we started with a wine tasting. We were pleasantly surprised with the opportunity to also do a tasting of infused balsamic vinegars. Both experiences were wonderful. We sat on the patio which was very relaxing. The staff was attentive but they were not intrusive. All of our dishes were beautifully presented and used local, fresh ingredients. We will definitely go back.
We had lunch on the outdoor patio.
It was a lovely day & the food and service were excellent.
Food and service was excellent. Would definitely go back again.
OLiV does not disappoint - great food, highlighted with great olive oils and balsamics, and wonderful Strewn wine. Fresh ingredients (a delicious grilled apricot in the amuse, for instance), well prepared.
Very nice patio and excellent food. Friendly professional service. Reasonable pricing. Very nice location on the way to Niagara on the Lake
Very nice winery and wine, The restaurant have good foods and also very good service !!!
Our mother daughter trip was capped off with dinner on the patio. Beautiful setting, great service, wonderful tapas and glad we didn't resist sharing dessert - the creme brulee trio was a perfect end to a great evening. Thank you
The service was great. The tapas menu was imaginative and quite enjoyable. The cheese board, however, was uninspiring. Not enough cheese or varieties of cheese. Too much bread and fruit.
only downside to this restaurant is that the wine list is restricted to Strewn winery wines.
Good value with options for lighter bites to share. The tuna crudo and lobster crepe were outstanding, as was the goat cheese tart. The chicken entree was also good value and above par in quality. Try the Pinot blanc; it will not disappoint.
My extended family and I stopped in for late lunch and tapas. We were pleasantly surprised with the selection, presentation, and quality of food. I am recent graduate in Niagara College's Culinary program, and was interested in exploring local cuisine with a twist.
The portion sizes are more European style, and thus smaller, but the dishes are clearly crafted with care. Price is a little high, but again, the quality makes up for it; it even makes it a good deal for the curious diner. And of course, you shouldn't go to a winery expecting cheap fare!
Service was great and not pretentious. Many hands to help. We had a lovely view on the patio.
My only complaint would be that the conplimentary bread was stale. However we came mid-afternoon between lunch and dinner, so maybe thats all they had between services.
Shared a cheese platter and 3 Tapas ( Lamb, beef and lobster) all was perfect including the olive oil, balsamic vinegar with fresh bread while we waited with our wine.
This was lovely meal with friends, but oh, it was so hot in the restaurant. We were anxious to eat up and find a cooler area. We realize that the outdoor temperature was unbearable, but thought indoors might be a bit more comfortable. It was rather nosiy and the music was almost too vibrant - hard to have a decent conversation.
It's a lovely spot with fabulous food. It is expensive as the portions are tiny. The air conditioning was broken so we were very hot by the end of the meal. Overall great restaurant.
Excellent food, great service. Beautiful outside patio, flowers in bloom....relaxing lovely setting
Nice menu, excellent service and food was excellent
The food was good but not great (lamb was over cooked, pieces of tuna were really small). Also not much ambiance, which was odd considering it was a winery. It was an okay meal but not as special as we had hoped.
We enjoyed our experience and appreciate the fine quality of our meal and service provided. Great wines from Strewn Winery and special Oliv oils to compliment the dish served makes it even more enjoyable. Staff are very accommodating. Cocktails can be improved or changed for the summer. Overall fantastic!
We ordered the fromaggio platter. Everything was amazing! The cheese complemented the candied pecans and the breads. The smoked salmon was delicious. Megan, our hostess, was very engaged and personable. I would definitely not only come back, but recommend this to others.
Keep room for the Tapas! Great service, food and ambiance.
Very good food and service. Fun to have so many dishes that can be shared. We ordered four things to share and the timing of them was great. Pricey wine.
We enjoyed the creative tapas, which were different from what we usually find.
Great in all ways
We had a great experience and the food was outstanding!!!
Very nice atmosphere, the waiter was very friendly and attentive, but would forget the subtle details, like bread, water, etc. Fortunately there were other people who covered for him.
Their seafood bisque was very good. We also ordered the mushroom gnocchi which were very tasty but rather large, very rich, and lacking in mushrooms. Wines are okay. good representation of the region, but not the best.
Overall it was an enjoyable experience. Disappointed in the apple and walnut salad. Cost is $16 and there was exactly five pieces of baby spinach and of course a small but if apple, etc. Very tiny. Seafood fettuccine was tasty but not quite sure if it was worth the $28 they charge. The shrimp were some of the smallest I have seen. Been to other winery restaurants and the prices are about the same but I prefer the other places over Oliv at Strewn. If it was up to me I probably would not go again but as with this lunch if friends want to go to Oliv I wouldn't object.
Service very poor. Six people at the table, all of us ordered tapas, no entrees; and the waiter forgot to serve two people at the table. We finally stopped him and asked where their order was, and the waiter said, "Oh, do you want it now? " He was very rude and tried to blame us! It took a long time, and I suspect he hadn't even put the order in. Order finally arrived, but staff was turning off the lights around us. Charcuterie platter was mostly bread, and, two shrimp for $12 was a little steep. The rest of the food was OK. Thanks to the waiter, there are six people who won't return.
We had a lovely meal here. Service was very friendly and professional. Salmon was done perfectly and served with a nice variety of vegetables. Would definitely come again!
Great atmosphere and even better food! Would definitely recommend it!
Lovely evening having a meal after a wine tasting. Service was outstanding! Food was wonderful - highly recommend it if you are in the area.
Lovely ambiance. The gnocchi was fabulous. Recommend ordering a few tapas to share before your meal.
Fish was not fresh
The setting is lovely and the dining room is quiet with well spaced tables. The wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The food was tasty but took a very long time even though the restaurant wasn’t busy.
Had the Lobster Mac& Cheese Tapa's size which was excellent..followed with the Tapa's Goat Cheese Tart...yummm!
We came here based on an internet search for interesting food menus in the region. This menu sounded delicious and the ambiance welcoming and not too pretentious. It certainly lived up to our expectations. The food was delicious, well prepared and presented by staff that were friendly without being overbearing. Such a wonderful experience! Thank you!
Not much for writing reviews, but OLiV was a great find! The filet mignon was excellent and my wife had the veggie platter which she enjoyed. The staff was awesome, great ambiance-we ate outside on the patio- would recommend to anyone!
