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.
Loved the location and the view, Service was outstanding and food was very good.
The food was amazing!! We ordered scallops, raw oysters, lobster fettucine, and the braised beef everything was delicious! All thanks to the chef who made our dining experience outstanding. We will definitely be returning soon.
What a wonderful dining experience! The food was surpassed only by the setting. Or maybe vice versa!
Loved the food
Patio is lovely, however the chairs were somewhat less than comfortable!
Understanding hard surfaces are necessary, the seat size was very small, which over time, felt distinctly more and more uncomfortable. Particularly for those of us with arthritis who need a bit more... stability in such.
This is not true of all chairs on the patio - some others appeared to be larger... bottomed... with arms (which ours did not have).
Not my first time visiting this restaurant and certainly won't be my last - as we otherwise, we enjoyed every minute and every mouthful!
The tomato bisque soup was delicious and the garden salad was full of lovely fruit, nuts and feta cheese. Our main was vegetable pasta and really enjoyable. We felt safe and the view by the window was lovely. This is our second time at the restaurant and we will come back again.
The menu was very interesting lots of great tapas. Everything was delicious.
The service was impeccable as our waitress was very attentive and provided us with all the food and wine information. The atmosphere was also great!
The first visit for the four of us from Waterloo, and I hope not our last.
Enough variety to please all the palates and all of it good.
Service was extremely poor. Server continually forgot t bring things to the table. Food was cold and bland. Would not recommend at all. Go to any of the other excellent restaurants in the area.
Justin was great and the food so yummy
Amazing food and service. Also accommodated a last minute change in time for us. Thanks so much!
We had a wonderful day in NOTL. Most definitely it was highlighted by Justin’s service at OliV restaurant. He was exceptional and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. The oysters on the half shell were incredible
The best pizza I've ever had. Good portions, crispy crust and fresh toppings!
Service was great but can’t say the same fir food and wine
We all truly enjoyed every bite! From the soup, to the tapas, to the entrees, the food was outstanding! Thank you to Alejandro for the excellent service!
The food is terrific and the service was very friendly. The antipasto platter was a hit, great assortment cheese and cured meats. The tapas and the entrees we ordered were absolutely delicious. Great ambience as well, we ate on the spacious patio and it was very easy to maintain social distancing. Most definitely will return.
The portions are very small for the price point. Service was good.
Excellent food and wine with great service. The ideal spot, weather permitting, is their terrace.
Everything was amazing!
From our wonderful server”Michelle” all the yummy food and the beautiful warm night on the patio! We will most definitely be back!
We had lovey food and efficient service. Highly recommend!
This was such a disappointing experience.
We ordered the Cab Sauv bottle of wine that was around $100 (thinking it would be a good wine given the price)
It was HORRIBLE. Tasted like a $10 bottle of wine.
After 25+ mins of waiting for the server (who I am giving the benefit of hoping she was just new & that’s why she was horrible) to hear back from her manager about what we can do about this… at the end, we were pleased it was taken off the bill.
Next onto food… HORRIBLE. We ordered charcuterie- which came with 2, yes I will repeat…2 crostini’s and 1 pretzel stick thing.
Maybe 5 pieces of cheese???
A whole bunch of random veggies & fruits-which included very spoiled & bad. Definitely skip the $40 waste of money on charcuterie.
The garlic breadsticks, looked like something you’d get from Pizza Hut… not worth the hype.
The service was terrible. Again, I hope this was just because she was new possibly? But she was very slow & you could tell she had too much to handle on her plate that night serving.
Overall, I wouldn’t give this a single star.
Such a let down for our girls trip dinner!
Don’t miss the lobster fettuccine
We wanted to be moved inside as it was cold & there looked lots of room but they said no
The food was not good at all
Food very good. Outside patio beautiful at night. Service a bit slow
Food was excellent, service was excellent. We traveled from barrie to come and was not disappointed.
Excellent food and service
Very friendly staff and fast service. The tapas a good and great for sharing. Nice ambience on the patio. Good value for money.
