    Even though the items on the menu are over priced, the food and drinks are excellent, so it was well worth the cost to celebrate a special occasion. Our waitress, Lydia, was very personable and knowledgeable of the menu selection. She checked on us frequently even though she was busy serving other tables, one with a large group of customers.

    We really like Olive & Oak but the Mother’s Day Brunch buffet wasn’t a great experience. For starters, it wasn’t worth the cost. There wasn’t a big selection and they were out of most things every time we went in line. While the place is cool, the food was not great, especially at $85 / person. Lesson learned. To make matters worse, they charged a 22% gratuity. The server only got our drinks, and only twice. The manager had to remove used plates as they were stacking up. Sorry to say that I would not recommend their Mother’s Day Brunch. Overpriced for what you get.

    We paid over $220 for the Mother’s Day brunch. When we arrived at 11:45 am there was only one food table; all the plates were gone and all the food dishes were empty. I had to tell the server to go get plates, no follow-up, the manager finally brought us an eggs Benedict but they were cold and the English muffin wasn’t toasted and hard. When more food finally arrived people swarmed the serving table jostling and pushing - not a fun experience It ruined my wife’s day I really feel we should have gotten a refund A major thumbs down for what used to be one of our favorites

    This review is not for O&O the restaurant because we eat there frequently and it’s always great, this is about the Mother’s Day meal. Very awkward set up to where we were seated, did not see a waitress for ~10 minutes until we ask if we were just supposed to get our food and we were told no you have a waitress. The person came over, took our drink order and we proceeded to go up to the buffet. There was very little food left in the bins and it was all lukewarm at best.  We did go up about 20 min after our 1st trip up to see if food had been replenished and it had not, and the items that were there were again barely warm. When we were ~3/4 of the way through our meal, our drinks showed up, never saw the waitress again (until we stood up to walk out). We didn’t drink any alcohol so we really paid ~280 dollars for cold eggs Benedict, cold scrambled eggs, bricks of cold stuck together bacon, luke warm potato’s, fatty prime rib and shrimp cocktail with no cocktail sauce, plus 2 kids to eat cold waffles with only whip cream as the syrup was empty as well. Fail.

    This is a very special place! The cocktails and wine list are amazing, the menu unique and every dish at our table was outstanding! The flavors in the rockfish, the tenderloin cooked to perfection, the goat tostada, and those roasted oysters! Great for a special occasion, worth a trip to Webster Grove!

    The service was great and the dining experience was appropriately paced; the staff were all very friendly. The cheese curds were phenomenal, the best I’ve ever had—the light buttery batter was perfect. I had the gaucho steak and my wife had the beef tenderloin, both were cooked perfectly and were delicious. The thing I really appreciated was the kids menu for my daughter. There were several options and she loved it. We will be back!

    We’ve been coming here for awhile now and our experiences keep getting worse and worse. Our server this time unfortunately was rude and didn’t smile at us (I think she was upset that we didn’t order entrees, so our check wasn’t that high?). Food is consistently good, even if it slow at times.

    This upscale restaurant has it all. Beautiful surroundings for a dining experience offering delicious and unique craft cocktails to enjoy with lots of tasty appetizers including fresh oysters prepared multiple ways, and we enjoyed them all, although the Buffalo oysters were my favorite! Entrees included a perfectly grilled flank steak and The Dip. Save room for the Cloud cake…a coconut cream delight ♥️ Outstanding service, too, from Sam😊. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    Jacqueline was absolutely fantastic and the Beef tartar delicious. Steak was blah and not tender. Not the quality of meat that it should've been for $100. The fishy smell from various tables was disconcerting. Not the delicious seafood smell, but rather something is off sort of way. Previous visit was great, so hopefully this was just a bad night.

    It well may have been the company I was dining with but the whole vibe was phenomenal. Our waiter, Sam, was very in tune to our vibe, made amazing suggestions and was very attentive but not intrusive - loved him. The food was amazing - perfectly portioned particularly for us to share - we split fried oysters and roasted - delicious!! Then split the rabbit crepe and the duck breast - chef kiss! And the desserts were perfect! We again split the hot fudge pudding cake and by Sam’s suggestion, the butterscotch pot de crème- AMAZING and perfect to share! Thank you!

    First I want to say this place was highly recommended to me by a Chef friend. I booked a large reservation for a business dinner and they accommodated my request when I needed to increase the number of people twice. When we arrived the ambiance was perfect, but…the minute we walked through the door I felt like they were upset that we were a large party. I was greeted with oh ok follow me. We all think the waiter was high and he had no help. It took over an hour to finally get our appetizers. We had to keep asking for drink refills and he didn’t attempt to take entree orders until I forced it. We were there 3 1/2 hour’s!!! The front of the house manager should have noticed right off the bat that something was wrong. My clients were ready to leave and by the end of the night it felt more like a chore than a treat.

    We were so excited to see the new location and great food! Sadly, It wasn’t what we hoped for at all. It was too loud to permit conversation at a 4-top, unless we shouted at each other, and then we gave up mainly because the people next to us were literally a foot away and so loud. Food was mediocre to disappointing. I had the goat meat balls that were bland. There were no inviting gluten-free dishes so my friend had to choose a salad. Two others said their meals were ‘just ok’. Dessert-wise the coconut cake was divine. So skip the meal and have the cake. Also, waitstaff were great.

    Our server was amazing! Very kind and gave us great recommendations from the menu as this was our first time in. Everything was so delicious from the drinks, to the apps, the entrees, service and ambience. I can’t wait to come back!!
