A real surprise. I noticed the place waiting for a bus and a friend and I tried it for the first time during Restaurant Week. Arancini for the antipasto--unusual to find in Seattle--, outstanding mixed skewers with splendid ground lamb, and two different desserts. Looking through the menu, there are so many appealing things to try. Waitstaff friendly but not overbearing or invasive. A warm and inviting atmosphere.

We really enjoyed our night out at the Olive and Grape. When we first booked the reservation I was thinking, "Greek food?", but the menu was much broader than that and the food and service were very good. We had a great time.

The staff at The Olive and the Grape are consistently good. They take care of us when we need them and they seem to disappear when we don't. I've tried a number of different things on the menu and never been disappointed.

We had a great meal here starting with their mini lamb skewers followed by a greek salad. Our entrees were the dumplings and sirloin skewers. All the ingredients were fresh and cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back.

I had the chicken kabob, the seasoning was alive with flavor, the chicken moist and the veggies cooked just right. They easily accommodated diet restrictions offering lovely alternatives. It was a warm day and having the sidewalk side open allowed a lovely breeze to flow in. Service warm, friendly, attentive and timely.

The owners, Paola and Chris, are very attentive to customers' needs. The Mediterranean food is deliciously, creatively prepared and very fresh, of course. The atmosphere is lively. After the theater crowd leaves at 7:45, the restaurant is quieter.

The food was delicious. I had the Alinazik, smoked beef cubes on warm yoghurt with some egg plant, with a half Greek salad and my wife had Gnocchi with meat sauce. The only downside initially was keeping the sliding door open and front door open on a cool night, causing a draft to chill my feet. They were kind enough to close this when I complained. We had baklava and gelato for dessert. Olive and Greek, I believe, have Turkish proprietors who bring Turkish, Greek and Italian cuisine to their menu with quality.

We’ve been visiting The Olive & Grape regularly for several years and have always had good meals. Lots of flavorful, healthful choices on the menu. It’s not very big, so we make reservations for weekend visits, but the decor and ambiance are charming. And the staff is always friendly and accommodating. It’s our favorite restaurant in the local area.

We regularly usher at Taproot Theatre around the corner and, in effect, have a standing reservation for dinner at The Olive and Grape afterwards. It's a perfect conclusion to a wonderful afternoon of the arts and eating in Seattle.

I love eating at Olive and Grape, and it's always nice to see Paola. She is so warm and welcoming. My favorite dinner at Olive and Grape is their Moussaka. It's a little different than the traditional Greek Moussaka, but I like it better. The Olive and Grape is a great restaurant to eat at before going to the Taproot. Cheers to Olive and Grape!
