    We arrived for an early dinner with a reservation and were seated right away. The service was great, and the food was fantastic. Even though the place was filled, it wasn't too loud. I expected a lot of noise with all the open space and hard surfaces.

    I was disappointed in the food especially the Charred Octopus appetizer and the Lamb Empanada (too much cumin). The braised rabbit was OK , if you were blindfolded and tasted it you would described it as a French Onion soup with chicken. The Pot De Creme was very good. The ambiance was great, nice decor, very good bar scene.

    Gorgonzola/peach appetizer was a knock out. Sister raved about the rabbit. Excellent seasonal food, although I wish the salmon was wild sourced from Alaska. The creamed corn/tomato relish with arugula was perfect. The delicata fries unusual and very tasty. Friends said the burger was perfectly grilled. We shared two desserts: vanilla angel food cake with peaches was lovely but the butterscotch pot de creme with salted caramel was over the moon. Coming from the West Coast gourmet ghettos of Berkeley and San Francisco, Olive+Oak was a real treat. Kudos to our excellent server as well.

    Had a great first experience at Olive & Oak. The location is beautiful. Our server, Perry, was excellent. He was attentive and helpful. We will be asking for him when we return. For starters we tried the Dates, the Milk + Honey as well as the Blue Crab Gratin. The dates had amazing flavor and the Blue Crab Gratin was delicious. The Milk + Honey was not what we expected. It was good but probably wouldn’t order it again. For Dinner, I had the Beef Tenderloin. I was so happy with my decision and will have that again.

    Olive + Oak offers delicious meals for everyone. My husband and I celebrated our 15yrs anniversary there. I’m a vegetarian and he’s a meat eater. It’s often difficult to find a restaurant that pleases us both and OO has. Oh and the butterscotch pot de crème is amazing.

    the food at Olive and Oak is outstanding... My husband and I cannot get past the Cowboy Ribeye with steak frites..... Delicious stake covered in butter and served with crispy fries... The menu varies daily and every appetizer, drink, and dessert I have had has been wonderful... Service is attentive but not overbearing.... they are always there at the right time when they anticipate you might need something.... I can't say enough good things about this restaurant... I also appreciate the outside seating as my husband and I have immunity issues and their patio dining allows us to have a night out without worrying about getting sick....

    The heirloom tomato appetizer was exactly as expected with plenty for 3 to split. All entrees were tasty. A little less cayenne in the lamb empanada would have allowed for more of the lamb to come through. The sourdough bread was also wonderful. We will definitely be back.
