Our waiter was excellent. Very polite, quick and friendly. Great sense of humor. Our friends were late, he was patient and professional.
I hope he will be our server next time, we will definitely ask for one of his tables.,

We ate outdoors - very nice! The food and wine were very good as was the service. Too many people packed inside (in our opinion) especially during a covid-19 pandemic. Overall a nice night out!

Olive Terrace is really hit or miss. If it’s not busy, service is good. If they are even moderately busy, service is bad. Food is expensive and just so so. We are happy to pay for good food but it has to be really good for the price they charge.

Watch out for per person the water charge. Whether you ask for it or not. It’s nothing special and there’s no ice in it.

First time there. Saturday brunch was very good. We sat outside, socially distanced, in a large tent next to some greenery. If you go on the weekend, they have a special brunch menu, we had to ask for it, they gave us the regular lunch menu only. A glass of champagne is included in most brunch entrees, was lovely with the waffles and berries. The sesame ahi tuna was very tasty. We enjoyed the bread and dips at the table. Plenty of food, will go back again.

Ok to good food . Service was good with the refilling of water and ambiance was great even with outside dining. Escargot was good. My wife’s ribeye was medium to medium well instead of the requested medium rare. She ate it as she did not want to drag the meal on longer. We did point it out to the waiter. ( no apology just a statement that he will let the chef know. No offer to make things better -nothing. They are very over priced for the quality of food. I think the chef needs to be retrained or someone should be monitoring what they are putting out better. Can’t honestly recommend them based on our experience last Saturday.

We did a reservation in Open Table at 7:30 pm and got our table at 8:24 pm. The service started good but we wait for another 20 minutes for our starter dish that was served and received to the table right next to us, we were starving. We ended up receiving our main course and then the starter. Not a good experience and not planning on coming back.

Where do I start. Well the service is good. But man...! The food quality and presentation is just overrated. Everything by is too pricy for the quality of the food. The taste of the food is bland.
I ordered their baked eggplant Parmesan, I cannot taste anything to distinguish the flavor. My boyfriend ordered their sea bass - so much going on there and the flavor of the fish just disappeared.
Their bruschetta is not very good, nothing in the food emphasize any flavor and the quality of the ingredients are just lost.
My boyfriend warned me about this place and I regretted. I will never go back abs will not recommend this place to anyone. I think chef needs a culinary training.

It was ok. Everybody seemed happy with their food. I usually get the soltani but this time, I decided to try to baked sausage papardelle pasta. I really didn’t care for it but I also realize I’m not going to love everything on the menu. I’ll visit again. Just won’t get that dish. Otherwise, it was a nice night

Went as we were passing through on our way to the National Parks. It was good enough, their outdoor seating is a little too cramped causing the service to be pretty slow/not that COVID friendly. Food was decent tho.

Always love this place. The best Linguine Vongole one can get. The owner is always there. The servers are always very friendly and professional. They greet you when you get there, they say goodbye when you are leaving. My wife loves the scallops St Jacques. Great beer/wine list. Sad that restaurants are going back to being shut down again in California, hope they can weather this storm, been going there for seven years now.

Olive Terrace has been our go to restaurant, when we want fine dining. We love the service, the food, and the ambiance. I ordered my usual salmon, and my husband ordered the halibut. Fish was cooked perfect, and we had a very nice evening. I went onto order dessert because I didn't want to leave. Music played as we ate, and I felt it was a very relaxing evening. Olive Terrace never disappoints.

I feel we hit the place on an off evening. Service was poor. We had to wait 30 min for our first round of drinks, another 30 min before our order for dinner. We ordered a wine (Zinfandel) but received a Petite Sirah. Luckily we enjoyed it. Some of our party ordered a second drink and it took nearly 45 minutes, asked 3 different people about the drinks. For the positive the food was great. It was a birthday celebration and they did serve the dessert with a candle. Really need to work on the service.
