Mediterranean
Olive & Ivy brings a bustling Mediterranean neighborhood market to the Scottsdale Waterfront. You’ll find fresh baked bread, handmade pasta, rich espresso, and an array of sandwiches and salads. That’s not all – guests can choose from over 45 wines by the glass. When you dine under the shady trees on the massive patio you’ll feel like you’re in southern France, not southern Scottsdale.

Mediterranean salad had barely any feta. The crumbs they had were of cheap feta.
Had to wait for the second glass of wine too long. almost done with dinner.
Pasta was good and the atmosphere lovely.

Had such high hopes. Wanted patio seating and told there was a wait of 30 minutes, this with a reservation and all. Inside, the clatter and decibel level were headache producing. Our food was merely OK. The bread, however, was wonderful. My Sangria was underwhelming with no fruit in it. 🙁. However, our server was top notch.

Olive lack of attention by waiter and cold entrée all combine for a disappointing experience this time. But, still one of our favorites and certainly will give Olive & Ivy another chance.

Everything was great - service, food, was able to get a table on the patio w minimal wait...and then the tractor started doing something near the patio...the noise was really loud...must be s way for the work that was being done to instead be performed during the day?!!!?

I Hate to ding you on food because we love this restaurant and are frequent diners at Greene house and north. Although 3 of the four of us we very happy with our entrees, I was not. I had the veal spinach ravioli. I think that’s what it was but it was so bland and tasteless that it was hard to tell. Because I KNOW the fox group knows pasta, this dish was a dud. I did ask the waiter which pasta he’d recommend and this was his choice. I’d hate to try the others. Maybe it was an off night, but I’ll know better next time. Thanks for all the other great dinners!

made an Open table reservation about 5 days in advance and notified restaurant it was a birthday celebration which they never acknowledged and asked for a table outside. The party was for 6 people. Apparently they only have two 6 tops and they were already reserved. Seems like they could be more accommodating especially as an Open Table reservation and days in advance with time certain known. Inside is dark and loud. Server Casey was very helpful.

Everything was great. Except my sea bass was nice and warm. But sides that came with were cold. Had a speck of something in my wine glass. It was floating. The waiter got me a new glass and full replacement. Which I appreciate.

We visited Olive & Ivy recently on a trip to Scottsdale. We had dined there a little bit more than a year ago and loved the restaurant. We hoped that it would live up to our initial experience and I am happy to say that it was as good or better than we remembered. The server (Elizabeth) was delightful...cheerful and very helpful. The food was excellent. We will definitely return the next time we visit Scottsdale.
