Great food - special vegan menu and choices. Service was not attentive and slow.

After all the tourist restaurants and too much barbecue, this beautiful restaurant was a lovely escape from typical Austin food and noise. Delicious, creative Italian cooking. We enjoyed yummy homemade pasta and a wonderful stuffed veal. A real treat!

Everything was absolutely perfect! This dinner will be a family favorite for many years to come! The food, service, and atmosphere were more than we could have hoped for. It was the perfect way to celebrate at 25th birthday. I can't say thank you enough!

Maybe our mistake was we went to an Italian restaurant and ordered steak and scallops. Perhaps we should have ordered pasta. Also, We don't drink, and there were only 2 of us, and our bill was almost $140, so there's that. We ordered 2 appetizers, a burrata salad and a fried cheesy ball kind of thing. Neither of which was tasty or memorable except for the blandness.
My 4 scallops, a $30 dish by the way, tasted as good (no better no worse)as any scallop I've had. Not memorable, but fine. But my poor partner ordered steak . It came out coldish, chewy and flavorless. I tasted a bite and was honestly surprised at how utterly flavorless it was. That poor cow must have not eaten good grass.
Our server was much like the food, competent, but bland. The atmosphere though is very nice. I truly wish it was better, I'd read so much hype about it, I was excited to try it
We may gi back some day and order pasta, but its gonna be a long time.

Brought my family here for dinner on Saturday. For the second straight visit, the service was very poor. It goes well until the server took our order. One of the items was wrong, later brought the wrong glass of wine which was late and unable to be enjoyed during the meal. Kids meals were brought out so far in advance of ours that they were finished for 5 minutes before ours arrived. Disappeared for long stretches of time. No apologies. My wife had to track down someone in order to pay the bill. This is becoming a trend and we likely won't be back as this indicates an issue with management and lack of attention to detail.

Came here against my better judgment because my partner wanted to celebrate his 40th birthday at an Italian restaurant. While we were waiting for the last couple to show up the waitress kept rushing us telling us that the food would take a long time, Even though the room we were eating in was completely empty and the restaurant was not full.. She also felt it was a good time to teach us about the concept of coursing, but then brought someone’s dessert out while everyone still had entrées on the table. She was sarcastic, the pasta was mediocre and drinks were weak. She decided to divide up the bill individually and pass out everyone’s checks to them personally when it was supposed to be a birthday dinner that we all chipped in on, which made things v awkward. Will never be back.

I thought they had a limited menu, however I enjoyed my New York strip and my brother enjoyed his lamb. Our waitress could have been more upbeat, but maybe she was having a bad night or didn’t want to be there or maybe it was just me misreading her. In any case the food was good and the atmosphere was equally as good!

My husband and I have liked Olive & June for special occasions for a few years now, but after our last experience probably will not bother to go back again. While we had excellent service, our food fell very short of our expectations. I think we both described his risotto with shrimp and my trout plate as "just so-so". My food was oily, bland and lacked the "wow" factor dishes in the past have offered. His shrimp was bland and the rest of the dish was just off - I'm not sure how else to describe it. For the price and based on past experiences, O&J fell very short of our expectations on our much-needed date night... And considering how much competition there is in the area, we probably won't bother to go back.

Olive and June has a casually chic ambience and a welcoming neighborhood vibe. It's ideal for get-togethers with friends from out-of-town and for a very good southern Italian meal any time. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable if not consistently prompt, especially in the bar. On the whole, you cannot go wrong by dining at Olive and June.

Excellent Italian small plates. Loved the Bucatini with a lamb meatball!! My friend has Celiac's, so this restaurant was perfect for her, they offer almost all of their dishes completely gluten-free! They also do a vegan night once a month!

The sunday dinner is a great option for someone who want's to get multiple tastes of things for a low amount of money. The tiramisu was amazing as well. Our waiter was nice and was quick with everything. We will for sure be visiting this place again for dinner.

It was very loud in the dining room upstairs that made it very hard to have a conversation. We had a 7:15 p.m. dinner reservation and the monkfish was already sold out. The shrimp linguine came with crayfish instead but we were not notified of this change before receiving the dish. If we had known of the change we would have ordered something else from the beginning. The frito misto and crudo were delicious though. While the lamb ravioli was also good the quail was too salty. The service was very good though from the hostess, the server and valet crew. But, with everything said we won't be heading back.

My wife and I visited Olive and June for our Valentines Day supper. The food and drinks were very good and appropriately priced for the quality. Our waiter, who also serves as a bartender on other nights, was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave great recommendations in line with our preferences. When we arrived, 20 minute before our reservations, we asked if we could sit at our table early. We were given the option to sit outside or wait until our reservation and move inside. When I requested to sit at one of the eight open tables nearby until the 20 minutes had elapsed, the hostess stated that we would either stay outside or await the table inside, but couldn’t do both. I would’ve appreciated the opportunity to sit and wait for our table inside. Overall, I would recommend Olive and June to couples looking for a nice romantic time with high quality, tasty eats.

I was prepared to dislike this restaurant as another snooty, loud, and uncomfortable Austin "foodie" restaurant, but we were treating a friend to thank him for help he had given us and this was his pick. My husband and I were both pleasantly surprised. While it cost more than we would like to spend on a meal out on a regular basis, the food and service were excellent (in particular, the young woman who seated us was very gracious about my grumbling and asking to be reseated twice). We were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere: no blaring music echoing off of concrete floors making conversation impossible. And the seating was comfortable: we were not sitting on benches or boxes or backless stools as is so often the case in newer restaurants. My gin cocktail was a bit strange, but I liked it once I got used to it, the salad was tasty and the ricotta ravioli was heavenly. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. We will recommend this place and consider it again for special occasions.

This was our second visit to Olive and June, and again I delighted with the gracious level of service from everyone we interacted with. Last time, I dropped my iphone in the gutter in a downpour and the waitress quickly brought us a container of rice to help dry it out. On our second visit, I simply wanted a nice gin cocktail, and our waiter called over another more experienced waiter who asked me a couple of questions to get my tastes and gave me the name of my new favorite cocktail.

I often find Italian restaurants boring, but Olive and June's menu is full of interesting options, and everything our party of 3 sampled was well conceived and executed. DO NOT miss out on the sweet potato side -- it is heaven on a plate. The monkfish was delicious, as was the crostini, the farm egg with polenta and mushrooms, the fried risotto, and all the pastas we tried.
