Here for Happy hour / bday celebration and it was great . Would have loved outdoor seating better ( looked empty at top level but prob not open for staffing purpose ). Free valet parking is nice .

The food was incredible. Our server seemed unhappy to be there and wasn’t terribly kind or helpful. Everyone else seemed to be great so maybe he was just having a bad day. The pumpkin ravioli was exceptional and the patio is beautiful.

Have the mushroom bruschetta. Unique and so good. Pappardelle was a little overcooked - make sure to ask for it al dente.

Individual dishes were under and over cooked. The lasagna was over salted and overcooked. The broccoli was undercooked and had not caramelized. The tomato sauce on the other pasta dish was overcooked and had a tomato paste consistency. None of the dishes were seasoned well. The prices were well above the quality of the dishes served. The service was excellent, with several servers in supervised training.

I think it's a common concern across Austin right now but it seems that Olive and June is severely understaffed. We were sat for an 8:00 pm reservation and waited 40 minutes to be acknowledged by our server beyond having waters dropped off. I made eye contact and flagged her down multiple times and she saw me and then turned to walk away, directly ignoring me. Right as we were about to leave she finally came up and apologized saying she had been slammed which makes the wait understandable but not her persistent avoidance of our table. She gave us a complementary cheese board which was underwhelming at best (literally only had one small portion of brie). While she was very nice and attentive moving forward and I can understand how being busy can really set you behind, I would not return. No one in the restaurant seemed to think we should be acknowledged and multiple other staff could have come over to explain the situation. The food was good but overpriced and the fact that our experience made it so poor makes me really not want to go back ever again, especially when Austin has an overflow of subpar overly priced Italian restaurants.

Great ambiance. The atmosphere is beautiful. Unfortunately the appetizers were quite heavy - fritto misto, and arancini very heavy and cheesy/doughy. The papardelle was soggy - expect more of an al dente style, this was overcooked... Very good wine and lovely scenery. Appreciate complimentary valet.

Recommend for a one-time visit for the ambiance, but if you love italian food, this is more of an american italian style place - and inquire about size/preparation style for orders.

Outstanding, as always. First time back since the onset of the pandemic for restaurant week supporting the Food Bank. So, its been well over a year. Olive and June never disappoints! Our favorite restaurant in Central Texas.

I think our expectations were too high. That, and the fact that our go to Italian restaurant is Red Ash. Food was fine, ambiance was fine, service was great. Glad we tried it, but wouldn’t come back.

The people are very nice - there was no valet so finding parking was really hard and super inconvenient-the restaurant looks a bit out dated especially if you get sat upstairs. The food is good but not special - I could have an equally as good a meal at North.

They leave the doors open so the air conditioning doesn’t cool it down. It was burning hot. Our waitress barely came by, we ended up taking the check to the bar to close out. The food wasn’t good at all. The bartenders were very nice, and drinks were good.

Our table was outside on their lovely patio. We enjoyed the balmy weather and the delicious food. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. The restaurant paid attention to dietary restrictions. The menu offers fewer choices but has good variety.

Recommend 10/10. We ordered the beef pasta, the ravioli and the linguini for our entrees and each dish was different yet packed with flavor. HIGHLY recommend the ravioli.

We’ve always loved the outdoor patio at Olive and June with that amazing tree. So, it was disappointing to visit this weekend and see they had put up a plastic tent that destroys te view of the tree. I understand if it’s raining, or maybe cold, but not on a warm dry summer night. The food was amazing as always but I don’t think we’ll be returning. I miss the tree:..not worth the price to eat in a plastic tent. :(

The service was great loved the food and drinks and the outdoor patio. In particular the peach and tomato salad and linguine with shrimp was superb! We didn’t like the risotto too much it was too heavy. We did like the strawberry bombolini dessert very light and not too sweet. Personally would have liked some sweeter cocktail options but we appreciated the accommodating service especially when my partner did not like his drink the waiter took it off his tab. The patio wasn’t hot with fans lots of social distancing and even though they said the service would be slow because everything is made from scratch we didn’t notice it being slower than any other restaurant.
