Sundays in Winter are my favorite times to visit - there is always a combo playing lovely jazz, R&B, light rock, etc The food never disappoints and the wine is always good. Service is excellent every single time. All the tapas are excellent. Everything on the menu is excellent and FRESH for that matter!
Three of us went to OLIV for dinner. It was off season so very quiet. Only one other table occupied. The menu selection was fine. We had the special that was on offer. Appetizer, entree, dessert and a glass of wine. $95 per couple. Our starters were huge and a bit salty. Two of us had pork tagliatelle and it was delicious but could shared it was so large. The third dish was chicken based an very nice as well. Our waiter couldn't have been more accommodating and informative. I would go back when the patio is open. Overall very nice evening.
The food was top notch and the service was amazing. Everything was excellent down to the 70s and 80s music that was playing which was a nice change from elevator jazz.
I found this restaurant 5 years ago on line and we have been going quite often ever since. The food is amazing! Lunch or dinner we have never been disappointed. Just sharing tapas or ordering from the lunch or dinner choices....all exceptional! I do also have to mention that the service is superb as well very attentive and quite knowledgeable staff! I never walk out without buying the oil or vinegar that they use! We just love this place! On the weekends we have been pleasantly surprised with music... a live band or a singer which just enhances our experience!
Such a wonderful way to spend a Sunday listening to jazz and enjoying a scrumptious brunch. Service was above and beyond! Will definitely be back again.......
The food and service were perfect. A lovely night!
Had a wonderful brunch and jazz treat. Restaurant staff attentive , food and ambiance was great. Always had a wonderful visit at OLiV .
One of my favourite restaurants. It’s matching with Strewn makes it even more exceptional.
Can’t wait to try the cookbook and other treats.
Dinner and for that matter the evening was fabulous, Oliv is my wife's favorite dinner location. Service, value for your money where all worth it . It truly was a happy valentines day.
My wife’s steak was under cooked and very tough. The scallops that came with it were wonderful. My lobster ravioli was very good. This is our second time eating here, both times that had musicians playing. It’s just too loud for the small room, you can’t hear the person across from you.
Great meal, wonderful service, will definately return for one of their Live jazz nights for dinner
Outstanding as usual. The date night menu is an amazing value, the Strewn cab/sav/merlot we always order is delicious. The clam chowder is like no other and the beef filet plate was so fantastic. Tanya took great care of us and we love the classic rock/blues soundtrack.
Wonderful Live Jazz Sunday Brunch with my Dad. As usual it met or exceeded expectations. We began having time together at this winery restaurant on a whim about 6 years ago when we stopped in while on a drive. Hopefully we have many more visits ahead of us.
Already did on trip advisor
We will be back!
Meal was very good as was the service
Loved the entertainment for the Jazz Brunch on Sunday!
The brunch was fabulous!! I highly recommend their eggs Benedict. The live jazz entertainment provided an amazing ambiance!!
Excellent meal with great company. Few food allergy issues that were easily addressed - so something for everyone on the menu!
Hello We have dined at Oliv before and really enjoy the quality of the food as well as the friendliness of the staff. We will be returning soon
Good service and organic food. Volume is not so big but pretty arrangement.
This was our second time there. We love the food, our waiter and the atmosphere. It’s a great place to go. Nice wines and excellent olive oils.
A great experience. Superb food, great wine, friendly service and pleasant ambience. Our fourth visit in the
past 3 years and always very satisfying.
A very creative menu. Food was outstanding, as was the sevice.
We went for my girlfriend’s birthday and we all loved it!
Our overall experience was delightful. We enjoyed a leisurely late lunch. Our server was excellent. The charcuterie tray surpassed expectations. We generally found the tapas to be somewhat under seasoned and didn’t feel they lived up to a menu item at the price point. I would absolutely return and sample some of the other offerings.
My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, service, and fine cuisine. I had the filet minion, and my date the Arctic Char. Everything was done to perfection. This restaurant is perhaps off the beaten track for many people, but it is a jewel of a restaurant to discover and enjoy!!
Enjoyed a great tapas meal. The service was wonderful and the decor was lovely. Would definitely return.
Excellent lobster and fettuccini
We were disappointed. We sat at the table for 15 minutes after we were seated and no one came to say how busy they were so we could understand the slow service. We decided to leave and Two Sisters gladly accommodated us for dinner.
Very nice dinner with friends.
Right from the beginning our server was extremely rude. She turned her nose up at us as soon as we walked in. When we asked for bread she made it seem like it was a HUGE inconvenience for her. Drinks took forever to get to our table and she took forever to get us our bill. She kept making snide remarks to us for the whole interaction. I will never come back or recommend this restaurant which is a shame because the food was very good.
Very good dining experience with a wide range of dishes and excellent service
Oliv/Strewn is one of our favourite restaurants.The food is great,prices reasinable and ambience is lovely
could have give 5 star but the restaurant didn't even say happy anniversary when I clearly indicated on the booking. The food was very good except that the smoke duck Reuben was a bit too salty.
Poor service and food was mediocre and over priced.
I was very disappointed.
We dined at OLiV the first night of our girls weekend. Wasn't expecting a white tablecloth setting so that was a nice surprise. The wait staff was attentive but not overly so. We ordered the Formaggio platter to start which was plenty for the 3 of us. We then shared the Goat Cheese Tart, Veal Olivopini and the Smoked Salmon Canape; all were delicious. Two of us ordered a Cranberry Pear cocktail which we both enjoyed. Our other dinner companion ordered the Niagara Mint Fizz which she found to be too much lemon; our waitress had no issue removing this from the bill. They also offered to create 3 separate bills which was very convenient, something you don't find in the U.S.
All staff very friendly and attentive. Food was absolutely delicious. Wait staff was really pushing the pasta dishes, which seemed odd. But otherwise, great experience and would definitely return.
The wine list and spirits menu were very limited....didn’t have Tanqueray gin for example. Every specialty drink and most meals including desert have balsamic vinegar in it. Don’t get me wrong they clearly have great olive oil and vinegar, but when in all of your courses it’s overwhelming. The food was ok, but was disappointed that the ‘Veggie Lasagna” has no pasta in it. It was pretty much a stack of undercooked vegetables. It was not enough food without some lasagna noodles, and it was very bland tasting.
The food was delicious and came out fast and tasted so fresh. It was nice to have bread and olive oil and Islamic oil come out just before our meal. The service was excellent. The windows look out to an outdoor patio (which looks lovely) and some green space. The ambient could have been nicer, but maybe it is different during the daytime. Only other issue was they are known for their oils and its one of reasons we went but there was no offer or encouragement to go over and taste the oils even after we asked.
My boyfriend and I went out for our anniversary dinner, and absolutely LOVED it. From the service, to the quality of the food - it was a spectacular experience.
Neither my boyfriend or I eat bread, so instead of bringing us over bread and oils, the server brought us over a vegetable spread with rice crackers. We both thought that was a nice touch.
As for the dinner; my boyfriend had the salmon and I had the chicken. We were both satisfied, and so pleased with the quality of both our meals.
I would absolutely recommend OLiV to a friend (really, to anyone)!
We went for lunch with a group of five - I have nothing but good things to say about every aspect of this meal from the time that we arrived to the time we left. The food was amazing and the service was great. The food was not inexpensive but the quality and presentation was outstanding. Truly a meal to remember. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone without hesitation. We will be back!
We drove from our hotel at Niagara on the Lake to Strewn Winery for dinner for four. We shared several tapas--smoked salmon, smokey tomato, foie and riz (fois gras and risotto), and two orders each of lambpops (baby lamb chops) and carnitas. Then shared just one dessert as we were full.
The restaurant was not crowded (Monday night) and our waiter was fun and helpful.
We were glad we made the short drive as the dinner and the winery were lovely!
