    My favorite establishment in the Heights! Luis and his team (Aurora, Sara and Greg) are extremely knowledgeable about the pairing of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Must try the Peach Basil Mimosa. Trust me!

    I am in love with this place. My friends and I went to celebrate their birthdays and I’m glad we chose We Olive & Wine Bar. There were many options for whatever your heart desired in a wine and the food was delicious. All of their flat breads are a must try, as well as their salad dressing. Aurora served us and she has the greatest personality. She kept us laughing, comfortable, and fed lol :) We will definitely be back

    My husband and I dined at We Olive & Wine Bar prior to attending a concert at the Heights Theater. We had the Duo Dip (choice of 2 dips) and split the Italian Sandwich. Just the right amount of food. Our server, Aurora, was outstanding! There was a also a gentleman playing live music who was very good. We really enjoyed our dinner there and would highly recommend We Olive & Wine Bar.

    We very much enjoyed our lunch at WeOlive. The stuffed figs wrapped in prosciutto were the best I have ever had and would highly recommend! All of the flatbreads we ate were delicious too. Wine selections seemed to be about 50/50 with Texas and California wines. We were happy with the wines we selected. We certainly stocked up on delicious olive oils!!! Louis was a gracious host/owner and made our afternoon very enjoyable.

    Not what I expected. Not sure if this place was a restaurant or a retail shop. The live band was a little depressing. There was only 4 other guest in the restaurant on a Saturday night. That is a good sign that this place is not very popular. The food was OK. The wine list was decent. The service was uncomfortable. I got the impression the staff did not have a lot of experience serving customers. Over all we would not return.

    First time here. Not impressed. The place felt very odd and the staff didn’t really help at all. However, the guy working was knowledgeable and helpful. Cheese plate barely had any cheese on it. The wine was good. I wouldn’t go back unless I was buying a product on the shelf.

    We Olive & Wine Bar- HoustonResponded on February 23, 2021First, my wife and I thank you for supporting our small business and giving us feedback on your visit. Second, I'm so sorry to hear about what happened with the lack of service you received and the disappointment on your portion size of the cheese plate. I've shared your feedback with my team in the hopes that we can learn and improve from what happened to you. If there's a way we can make your next visit an excellent one or to share more feedback please contact me Luis @ 832-516-8230

    Love this place! A bit pricey, but delicious. However, it is completely unreasonable and ridiculous that they only allow 12 people in the restaurant when the capacity is four times that number! cLEARLY, the owner has so much money that he/she has no need to cater to customers or compete for business. Crazy! I could understand 50% capacity, but 25% is foolish and unreasonable.

    We Olive & Wine Bar- HoustonResponded on September 11, 2020In the interest of keeping our employees and guests socially distant, we've made the decision to keep our capacity at 25%. It MAY be foolish but trust me when I type - my wife and I are small business owners, just trying to survive these difficult times. Our business certainly needs the revenue, but not at the expense of endangering others. Thank for your support Ms. Sally, but I WILL NOT apologize for doing my best to keep our guests and employees as safe as we can. Luis Rabo - owner

    I had first gone to We Olive and Wine Bar for a floral class/event last May and thought it was a really cool place that I would like to come back to with my husband and another couple. I made reservations through OpenTable. When we arrived it was a little awkward because there was no one to check us in so we walked to the bar, but were not acknowledged right away. Finally someone walked by and I told them we had a reservation and they said oh yeah back here. We were seated in the very back by the bathrooms and kitchen area which wasn't ideal - kind of a bummer acutally. Then when we went to order a bottle of wine they came back to say they were out of that wine. It wasn't horrible, but was a let down. Not sure I would return in the future too many other places in Houston to go. It's probably fine for someone that lives in the Heights area and strolls in randomly to the neighborhood bar.

    We Olive & Wine Bar- HoustonResponded on February 26, 2020Hi Ms. Janice - First, thank you for your multiple visits and we're so sorry to read about your experience from last Saturday night. Even as a retail gourmet food store/wine bar, we still strive to deliver a 5 star "restaurant style" experience for our guests and to read that we failed to meet those expectations this time was a real disappointment. We'll be following up with you shortly with a phone call and hope for an opportunity to win back your business. Luis and Amber-We Olive Owners
