    What an experience! We booked without reading much about the restaurant, and were impressed with the infusion of balsamic and olive oil in different meals and even drinks. A must for sure!

    We've been to OLiV's many times and have always had great dining experiences. Our dinner last night did not quite live up to the expectation. We were a table of six. Service at the outset was very slow probably due to a lack of personnel last night. This, despite the fact that it was only busy on the patio with no tables active inside. After ordering a couple of appies for the table, the server asked for some of our menu's back before we had even placed our orders for entrees which was very strange. Not sure why six people had to share 3 menus. There also seemed to be some struggle to get our initial drink order to us in a timely manner. Apart from that, the food was outstanding, hot, and flavourful as always. This saved the day.

    The servers are super knowledgeable! We had Cindy and she was very kind and answered all of our questions. We got the tapas and they were good portions 4 tapas for 2 people was filling enough and the dessert was a generous portion. Definitely would recommend!

    I believe it might have been a different experience on another night. But when we went, the restaurant was filled with loud groups celebrating special occasions, and as a result it was not the intimate dinner we were hoping for. The wait staff were busy and didn't get to us immediately. They also lacked refinement and didn't seem well trained (one had no idea whether the olive oil was made on site). Although everyone was very pleasant, we felt we were at a pub, not a winery. The food was fairly good (stuffed mushrooms were excellent), and we were given a free dessert so I sense management knew the conditions were not ideal.

    We were very pleased with our dinner at Oliv. Easy to find, no waiting, terrific service, nice variety on menu, and the food was Fabulous. In fact, we enjoyed the bread, olive oil, and balsamic pairings so much, we bought 3 bottles. Delicious. We enjoyed our first visit so much, that we re- booked a second visit before we left. It too, was just as satisfying, and tasty. Definitely a 5 out of 5. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.☺️👍

    This is a hidden gem! We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner in this charming spot. The food was excellent and the choices were surprisingly varied. Good gluten free options too! I wish I’d gotten to have the creme brûlée but it was was the end of a busy weekend and there was none left. Good reason to go back! Service by Cindy and a visit from the chef were outstanding! Make the ( small) Trek up Lakeshore to Strewn. You won’t be sorry!

    Excellent restaurant and wine choices. We ordered many of the tapas including the lettuce wraps. Deviled eggs. Lamb chops. Shrimp. Mushrooms. Baked jalapeños. Potato hash. The potato hash is the only one we didn’t like. My husband got the mushroom steak soup and it was incredible.

    I can’t believe this restaurant was recommended by trip advisor . the appetizer was good but simple. I ordered the shrimp Caesar salad for the main. There were 2 shrimp, more of a garnish than a shrimp salad, too much dressing and the romaine lettuce was wilted. I called to give feedback to the owner of the winery but no one bothered to call back. Won’t be back.

    This restaurant is excellent. The menu was extensive, offering everything from small bites, tapas, items to share and full entrees. My husband and I sampled a number of different offerings and all were extremely delicious. Wine can be purchased by the glass is small to larger sizes, so you can create your own flight. The server was very informative, friendly, attentive without being intrusive. The patio seating was lovely. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area, and a drive there if you are not. It is well worth it.

    An anniversary dinner on the patio - unfortunately the weather wasn’t great but we were able to move tables further under cover. Service was very good even though our server Tanya seemed to have a lot of tables. We had a selection including soup of the day( served nice and hot)shared platter and tapas - all of which were excellent. We also had deserts with our coffee - which were very good.

    Great location with impeccable service and varied menu but for a tapas plate feel it was slightly Overpriced. The wine and Food was excellent but that is demanded for the Niagara wine territory with the enormous Competition.

    My husband and I had a lovely dinner. The food was tasty, good quality and well prepared, however what really made our evening pleasant was the skillful, friendly and caring service of the gentleman who took care of us. I am terrible with names however I believe he said his name was Derek. He was very busy however managed to balance well between multiple parties of 2 to parties of 8 people and made it look effortless. Very impressed overall. He even ensured that my husband was recognized for his birthday in a gracious way. We will be back and are looking forward to doing so. Kindest regards, Lindy and Marty Mazzarella

    The food was good, but our server was not. Although we had a larger party and items were written down by our server Paula, we did not receive certain items and had a very long wait. Drinks were not received, there wasn't enough cutlery, starters were received after entrees and it was difficult to find our server or get anyone's attention for help. There were issues with the billing as other items were placed on the incorrect bills (separate bills) which caused further delays and contributed to us even trying to salvage the outing. We came from out of town and left disappointed as the service was not what we expected from Niagara on the Lake. We were helped immensely by the gentleman while purchasing bottles of olive oil afterwards though!
