    Great experience at Black Olive. I booked for a party of 9 people to celebrate a graduation and they accommodated us in a private room. The servers were polite, informative, and patient throughout the meal and couldn't recommend this place more.

    Lamb chops were requested medium rara and they were medium well. Sat outside and wait staff forgot about us. Had to go in and have the host send them out. Not the usual experience. Awesome wine and everything else we ate was delicious.

    Dear StephanieB, Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the incorrect lamb chops and lapse in service. We identified and corrected the issue. On your visit, we were overwhelmed with large parties, impacting our attention to outside tables. We are increasing staff to handle our kitchen's exceptional performance. We appreciate your constructive criticism. Thank you for noting the excellent wine and delicious food. We hope to welcome you back soon for a flawless experience. Warm regards, Dimitris, Manager, The Black Olive

    The Black olive is always an excellent experience. From the ownership to the staff, to the food and the service. The sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
