great Greek Lamb platter for 2

The platter had 2 of everything and we couldn't eat it all. The lamb was tender but not really hot enough for my liking. There was roasted potatoes, Pita and tzatziki, big spanakopitas, greek salad, gravy... all good and plentiful. It was $40 for 2 of us, and we were too full for dessert.

My wife and I (often accompanied by our kids who love to get in on a free meal) come here almost every Friday. The original owners made us believers with the great Greek food and especially the gluten tree pizza. The new owners have revamped the menu, which some of the old patrons miss, but for us it's ok as... More

My Hubby and i came in for dinner on a Saturday night, though the overwhelming number of people in the restaurant, they gave us excellent service. The food that came with it exceeded expectations, the lamb was tender and flavourful, as for my husband, he greatly enjoyed his mousaka. The portions were large, yet perfect. We are definitely coming back... More

Hubby loved the lamb, I liked my pizza, ceaser salad needs some work too much dressing.Service was great. Their menu has a great selection of Celiac/ gluten free food!

We had lunch recently with another couple. Service was good and food was fine. A very extensive gluten free menu which was excellent. My panini sandwich aws good but the ceaser salad was very average. A little too much dressing so a little soggy. The small pizza our friends had was good and looked delicious. A great choice for a...

We found out about The Olive Grove online as it was recommended by the local Celiac Society. We now need to find restaurants which offer gluten free/Celiac menu options and this restaurant has an impressive array of options for those requiring specific dietary choices. My partner ordered a GF "pasta" which featured sun-dried tomatoes, pesto cream, chicken and spinach. It... More

I have to say that, generally, I do not enjoy staff parties. Venues in the past have been noisy and catering generic. However, The Olive Grove has changed my views somewhat with the provision of enjoyable meals and subdued atmosphere. Thanks to the lack of loud canned Muzak we were able to communicate - kinda essential with a staff party.... More

A new broom sweeps clean. John and his team have managed to do just that! Excellent menu, warm atmosphere, good food. And a celiac-friendly menu! We'll be back!

A friend told me about this restaurant and that they had an extensive gluten free selection so we decided to take our son there and try it out on Wednesday night. It was about 5:30 and there was a function going on in the main part of the restaurant so they were pressed to seat us in the smaller section... More
