Still the best value in Greenwood! Fresh, healthy food prepared by a chef who knows and cares about quality and value. Especially great menu for low-carbohydrate diets.

Delightful waitress - helped us with our menu (and proper Turkish pronunciations). Food was excellent and transported my friends and I back to our time together traveling through that country.

This restaurant had a warm welcoming small neighborhood feeling like you were invited to a friends family dinner. The chef was working service with 2 young men (probably sons). Even included some minor bickering for authenticity. Everyone showed a sincerity and concern for delivering a nice Valentines experience. The salmon gnocchi was not complicated but tasted yummy. Good place for a contrasting experience to capitol hill.

My favorite place for Turkish food! But they also have very tasty Greek and Italian offerings. Service is friendly and efficient. Took my parents for their first time. We ordered the Turkish platter, octopus leg (AMAZING!), Greek and arugula salads, two Turkish dishes, a Greek kabob duo, gelato, baklava, tiramisu and Turkish coffees. We would order every item again!

Excellent Mediterranean food and service. Full bar and oppen cooking area. We were there on a weekday evening so there were only a few other diners. On weekends, you should make reservations. Moderately high cost but worth it! We will be going back soon!

We enjoyed the pasta dishes and Greek salad.s. The portions were generous. It was very convenient to the Taproot theater. The service felt slow and we had 2 different servers, neither of whom were particularly friendly. I would try it again.

My go-to restaurant in the Greenwood area. Excellent and consistent food that always pleases my guests. The Masakka is completely different than any you have ever had. I order it every time I go, not heavy - but very light with a ton of veggies. The Turkish Alinazik is also very good if you eat beef. A lot of vegetarian options to chose from as well. HIghly recommended.

Eating at The Olive & The Grape is like returning to family. The ambiance is as warm as the greeting you get when you enter the door. The only problem with the menu is choosing just one or two items. Everything offered looks delicious and tempting. And, everything that I had was done to perfection and very tasty! I highly recommend this restaurant. I know that you will not be disappointed!

While visiting the area from Alaska we selected this lovely restaurant for its close location to Taproot Theater where we had tickets. The food was incredible! Very small, cozy & intimate space. The service was good, but could use perhaps one other server!

I visited this time to try the new options on the Seattle Restaurant Week set menu. I had the Turkish sampler meze and the rib eye steak main. Both were excellent, as you expect from this chef, but the stand out was the dessert. I'm a diabetic, so rarely taste sweets, and this keto-friendly (therefore diabetic friendly) affogato was absolutely fantastic.

As the Autumn weather cools and the garage door at the O&G rolls down, Paola, Chris, and their team keep the warmth of Summer going through great food, attentive service, and the Mediterranean hospitality they are famous for.

Heard about Olive & Grape through Taproot Theater nearby and so glad we went before the show! The ambiance was cute and eclectic - think bicycles, hot air balloons, lanterns, and a mediterranean feel. Service was friendly if a little haphazard. Food was delicious and fun. We really enjoyed trying turkish-style dumplings and we could have ordered a half dozen other items and been happy. Will definitely be back!

Always love to come to Olive & Grape. We have enjoyed just getting a variety of appetizers and also enjoyed a wide variety of the entrees. Some good wine and a good selection for the kids. We will be back within the month to try other items on the menus we missed the last time.
