    Celebrated our 46th anniversary here and had a wonderful dinner. My wife had the steak which was perfectly cooked and tender. I had eggplant florentina which was one of my favorite dishes ever! The staff was friendly and professional. The chef’s talents are on display with every dish. Be back soon!

    Our first time at the restaurant for a family of 5 celebrating a mothers day dinner the night before mothers day. The service and food were both great. We did have to remember that it was BYOB. Would definitely recommend

    Food and service were very good. I had read online about the "corking" fee for the bottle of wine we brought so that was Not a surprise. We had the crab soup and it came out hot and was delicious.

    This was our second time dining at this gem of a restaurant. One of our favorites did not survive covid and we have been looking for a replacement for a fantastic dinner. I believe we have found it. The staff is friendly and the food is fantastic. The bruschetta is spot on and in our last visit we verified that the red sauce is also great. I highly recommend the Olive.

    Was very surprised that their eggplant parm and chicken parm was very bland, had no taste. I’ve been here once before and the steak and crab cake was very good. Everyone love it there so I will try it again, just not the eggplant parm. Very cute inside

    We (7 of us) had lunch yesterday at the Olive. Our table was ready. Ample parking. Nice, clean large restaurant w high ceilings. Our server was friendly and attentive. We ordered drinks, appetizers, lunch entrees, and desserts. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Nice size portions. We took leftovers home. Highly recommend them!

    It was our first time and we found the food to be very good . The atmosphere is very nice and our waitress Jen was superb . Our only complaint is the terrible draft coming from outside each time the door opened. So bad , we had to put our coats on as well as the table next to us . We are actually coming back on Easter Sunday with our family and hoping to have a cozier table .

    I went here for Valentine’s Day, the service was excellent. The food was delicious and came out very quickly. We were pleasantly surprised. My husband got 2 stuffed lobster tails and the tails were cooked to perfection (he is very picky). I got the broiled seafood combo which was a huge portion and very tasty. (Flounder, shrimp, scallops & crab cake). These dishes came with fresh colorful vegetables and baked potato. Meals came with soup or salad and the soup starter was so good I brought some home for my daughter. We will definitely return! This is now my favorite restaurant. I hope they never change this excellent level of culinary service. You must check it out !

    The service is good and some of the food as well. I tried my daughters meatballs and to be honest they were the worst meatballs I've ever had. The restaurant should go buy them from Sam's club or ShopRite and they would be 10 times better. Maybe it was an off night but it tasted like the driest thing I've ever had. Chicken Parm was good but not very flavorful.
