Always a favourite place for us, close to home, excellent food and friendly, attentive service. It was noisy last night as they had a couple of larger groups in addition to regular tables of diners. Also, they were understaffed so the waitpersons had to get the drink orders as well, but they handled it with professionalism. I highly recommend this restaurant.
The Mediterranean chicken was delicious. The jerk shrimp lamb pops and pork and braised cabbage were great choices.
We had a lovely time! Our server Justin was awesome. Only criticism is that the lamp chops were a bit closer to medium and I had ordered medium rare, but they were still delicious.
Went for lunch - enjoyed the winter salad (recommended!), then some tapas plates and split the gnocchi. All good, tasty and overall a nice experience. Strewn winery is attached, as well as the OLIV store, so it’s easy to do a bit of shopping afterwards too.
My husband's flatbread turned out to be a pizza - Not what he was expecting - He was expecting Flatbread. He said the sauce was bad - like someone just threw crushed tomatoes without cooking them on the dough then covered with pizza toppings. His comment was he could have gone to Pizza Pizza and would have had a more satisfactory meal at half the price. The filet minion tapas tasted more like a stew with poor choices of meat than premium steak pieces with a gravy sauce, and I ordered a second drink which was forgotten about so we canceled it after flagging down the waiter as he never came back to check on us and asked for the bill so we could quickly exit.
They also updated the interior. I was there about 3 years ago and it felt warm and inviting and luxurious and the food was excellent. This time it now felt whitewashed - both the interior and the food.
Wanted to try something new, let's just say we were underwhelmed.
Attentive service, tasty apps and entrees. Wines were heavily surcharged (over 250%) even though they were from Strewn itself.
Our server Justin is the best server we have ever had. We base our subsequent visits on whether or not he will be working on the day we are contemplating our next visit to OLIV.
Food is always fresh and delicious. Service excellent. It's one of our "go to" places when we want to treat ourselves to a special meal.
The small plates were excellent, the ambiance & service was perfect . The mushroom & scallop plates were really interesting & delicious. We will be going back & Strewn premium cab franc was amazing . I am a sommelier & found their premium cab franc was exactly how a cab franc should taste - pure taste of the wine .Loved it !
Haven't been for a few years and it was just as we remembered it. A perfect spot on a cold rainy night. Good food wine service. Will be back sooner than later.
I decided to bring my mom to Niagara-on-the-Lake and we ate lunch at Strewn's restaurant, OLiv. We had the Lobster Grilled Cheese sandwich and it was fantastic. So much flavour. This is my second time coming here and will come back again.
Excellent service & delicious food
The food and drinks (cocktails) were outstanding in presentation and flavour. The value for the quantities and quality was perfect for sharing with two. The service was prompt, friendly, and attentive. Highly recommended.
Great place to eat. The wines are good too. And oh, the olive oils/vinegar selection is really good as well. We bought a whole lot to take home. Place is a little confusing to find because the signage says Strewn Winery first and Oliv below.
Highly recommend. The food was amazing and so fresh. Our server was awesome and very helpful. The wine was amazing.
WE enjoyed this lunch immensely! The Oysters were particularly good. We would return when back in Niagara
Great leisurely lunch with girl friends. Not rushed but service attentive. Great choices on the menu. Scallops delicious as was the soup.
A low-key place to have dinner with a very wide, varied and interesting menu. This is our first time going to this restaurant and we were pleased with the service, the food and the value. At the end of the dinner the chef\owner came out to greet the people who were there. Very nice, personal touch! We will definitely return the next time we are in Niagara on the lake.
Excellent food and must-try selection of balsamic and EVOO.
Amazing food and service!
Everything was great about this restaurant!!!! We especially love the food and the service!!!
The food is great, and we love the Tapa's and the options, ranging from Oysters, to Scallops, to eggs. As well, the Staff are really friendly, and fun.
My 75th Birthday
It was hard to choose what to eat on the menu! We went and picked up the Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar we had to dip our bread in along Main Street. Wine and beer prices were fantastic!
Went for lunch and shared four or five tapas plates. Delicious food.
Will go back!
Wonderful experience food was delicious and not expensive, server let us taste wines before ordering.
The food was fantastic!!! We always love the food. The service was great too. But they were really not equipped for cold weather on the patio. There were no space heaters, and the furniture is all metal. We dressed warmly but even still it was quite cold.
Food and service us always excellent! Would recommend it especially for special occasions.
Overall a great place for good food and service. We’ve been there several times and always had a good time and experience. I would recommend the rack of lamb (if available) but everything I’ve had is good.
We have eaten here before and it was much better last time. Service was excellent everything else was just ok.
OLIV is a wonderful restaurant and I recommend it without hesitation. The only reluctance to give an 'outstanding' review is that food could have been served a bit quicker. Waited a little longer than expected.
Also, a guest at a nearby table insisted on talking so loud, we found it irritating and unpleasant. Nothing the restaurant could do other than ask the man to cool it, nevertheless, it got in the way of an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable time.
Great meal and service, a really nice way to celebrate a birthday
We had a lovely patio lunch. Our server Cindy was fantastic! Hubby had the lobster linguine and I had the gnocchi, both were great.
Delicious food, thanksgiving special was superb. Loved the house olive oil and vinegar too.
Would definitely recommend! Menu has something for everyone, price point & portion size very nice! We had: turkey soup & capers salad as appetizers 👍👍, truffle gnocchi / tender chicken slices/ mushrooms in a light cream sauce- amazing! Salmon topped with grilled shrimp over basmati- also amazing. Too full for dessert😆!
It was an experience to have a dinner there, food was great, the service was excellent and helpful with their menu. I purchased a couple of their balsamic vinegar too to take home.
Ambiance was fine. Food was outstanding and the wine was also excellent. Very good diner
We enjoyed our lunch . Service was great in the restaurant.
We would have purchased aged balsamic vinegar from their shop however the shop wasn't staffed and the winery wouldn't sell it to us, so we had to leave without it.
OLiV is a hidden gem in NOTL -- the food is always delicious and service competent. Be sure to try their specialty vinegars -- the white balsamic and Cask 18 are my favourites.
