We were not disappointed with the food at Olives. Everything was delicious, but I did not care for the atmosphere. The restaurant was loud and felt like a chain. Service was just ok. Getting a refill for my water glass seemed like an impossible task.

This is a really nice place. Mature and sophisticated crowd. The night we went, there was a live jazz band that was awesome. We did not have food but we heard that it was good. Nice wine selection and other drinks were good as well.

I will say, that the food here is quite pricey. Dinner for two can work out to well over $100. However the food is so great that its worth it, and every time I come here my plate is always spotless afterwards. In addition to great food, the service is excellent with attentive servers. The wait time, without reservation, is... More

Walking distance from the shippong area makes Olives great place for quick cooked meal..But, since is quite crowded all the times, you might wait for a while. Food is OK, nothing special but not terrible either. Would come back as atmosphere is really relaxed and authentic :)

It was my greatest DISpleasure to visit this restaurant. The service was beyond poor, from THE HEAD WAITER! Olive? More like Ol-Dead,which is exactly how my family felt after waiting 45 minutes for food. During this visit the head waiter had such a lust for tips he tended to a table of 16 without deliberating us to another waiter. Keep... More

This is a great place to pop in for a quick bite or sit down for a good meal. The well stocked bar can handle most that you throw at it. The list of specials is always something to look at and most times my dinner choice is found there. There are lots of appetizers to choose from and you... More

I was in Nassau for the first time. Friends recommended Olives and boy was it a great choice. The food was great. The jerk chicken was fabulous and the Mahi Mahi sandwich was the best fish sandwich I've ever had! Remember, with all Nassau restaurants, you are on island time and if you're in a hurry try McDonalds. The service... More
