Great Greek food in Eastern Chester County. We had the appetizer sampler, which was fresh & delicious, just enough for 2. Then we split the chicken taverna, which was expertly prepared. But even though we split the entree, it was still much, and we ended up taking the rest home. Great value, great food, nice atmosphere. Will definitely be back.

Service was very slow and waitress was inflexible. Waited an hour for our food and some of the items ordered were substituted without our permission first. Several items on menu were sold out or otherwise unavailable to us (e.g. No pizzas, out of zucchini, eggplant, scallops) with dinner reservation at 6:15 we wouldn’t expect to be sold out so early in the meal.
My side of vegetables was 5 coin sized pieces of summer squash that were almost raw. Small portion compared to other plates and poorly prepared.
After food was served, no one came back to check if everything was ok. Lack of care and concern for our overall experience has probably lost this restaurant all 12 of the guests in our party.
This was our second visit to this restaurant. First time was average to good. This time was quite poor by comparison. I won’t be coming back.

So glad to see Olive Tree Bistro open again! Always great Mediterranean food at a reasonable price and especially nice that they are a BYOB. My wife and I shared the Mediterranean platter with lamb kabobs. Healthy and delicious.

What a pleasant surprise to find out that this same family owns the Olive Tree on Rt113 in Downingtown, Pa. I moved out of the area last year and had returned to visit. There is a new menu which was delightful. The spinach pie was the best I have had. The lemon chicken also was excellent. The dinner portion was large enough for 2 meals. When we first arrived no one was there but by the time we left it was quite busy. Staff was friendly and took the time to explain this newly reopened location.

I am so happy to find a restaurant that serves authentic Greek food! Everyone working there was so pleasant and even though they were understaffed, we felt attended to. The food was excellent. You know it’s great when there are so many people speaking Greek. Opa

The food is very fresh, well prepared, not over-cooked. There is a large selection on the menu.
The portions are large and most will need to take half home. We were happy with the Mediterran sampler. Overheard people liking the chicken and salmon dishes as well. The waitress was very good.
It is a BYOB .

We love authentic Greek food and when we returned from Greece two years ago, we became a little bit snobby when it came to what was authentic. We saw some good reviews on the Olive Tree Bistro and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! Our appetizers, salt and pepper squid, Spicy Feta Spread, and REAL Greek salad (no lettuce) were all superb. We really loved the Feta Spread. Our meals were equally good. Meatball platters, Gyro platters, Moussaka and multiple kabobs were all made well and tasted really good. The sauces served with each were also well done. The amount of food served was generous and we had another meal from leftovers the next day. Finally, the baklava...it was fresh, flaky and flavorful. We feasted. To wrap it all up in a bow-the service was friendly, helpful and warm. My family and I (including two teenagers) recommend this restaurant.

We were there on a Saturday night and the place was full, and yet they only had one main server for all of the tables (there was another "waiter" but he didi not seem to be serving any tables). So... even though we had a reservation, it took awhile to be seated (because the host had to clear off tables). Then it took a while to order (waitress just couldn't make it around to our table as she so many she was servicing), we never had our water glasses refilled, and one of the items we ordered never showed up to the table (even though it did on the bill). The food, however, was very good. BUT...unless the management can fix their dining room personnel issues, there is NO way the quality of the kitchen is going to off-set the kind of issues mentioned above. Based on the poor experience, I could not recommend this place to others.
