I have been here for lunch and a few dinners now. I try to work through the menu, but really enjoy the various fish selections. Having tried the pickerel, the salmon and the halibut. All are presented well and taste better. Service is always prompt and accurate, and always pleasant. Recommended as 'casual' but also if you're looking for a... More

This was a restaurant that was recommended to us. It was a real nice surprise and to have missed this place in my previous travels to Sarnia. Nice welcoming at the front door great seating, lots of space. It made me feel at home, and the food was outstanding. All homemade meals offered and service was really nice as well.... More

My first impression was very good as soon as I walked in. Very nice atmosphere, nicely arranged dining room and a great menu to choose from. I chose the chicken pot pie. It was very tasty with a puff pastry top and came with a side salad and homemade raspberry poppyseed dressing. Also on the plate were some pieces of... More

Olive's restaurant is an example of fine dining cuisine with the warmth of a local restaurant. Service is offered with a smile and personal touch. Food is predictably excellent . Local art graces the walls. There is a wide wine menu and the dessert selection is totally tempting. Prices are reasonable. Olive, herself, is a gem who puts her heart... More

This is probably one of the best places to eat in Sarnia. Our food was excellent, and enjoyed in a nice atmosphere. Their regular menu is very good, but they offer a special feature that includes an appetizer and entrée at a very good price - an outstanding value, and very delicious.

For SArnia this would be one of their more upscale restaurants. Atmosphere is very casual. Food was excellent (Had lamb chops which were very well presented. The vegetables were unique and great. Much better than the carrot/Cauliflower/broccoli mix you get at some steakhouses).

Olive's is one of several high end dining venue in Sarnia. It started as a very small restaurant but has grown into a full blown highly respected and visited restaurant in Sarnia. It's probably best described as one of the earliest gourmet restaurants in Sarnia where new tastes and gastronomical delicacies originated. The chef is not afraid to try newer... More

This is one of the best intimate restaurants in Sarnia. All the food in homemade and a very good portion as well. You can have a large group there too when you call ahead of time. Olive is the owner and is very personable as well, checking to make sure everything is ok with your dinner etc. We always go... More

Choose Olives for special occasion of Mom's 80th birthday family dinner. Confirmed reservation & how many in our party day before - yet we were shorted one place setting leaving me balancing on a corner. Food was delicious which it should be considering the prices. Server was pleasant and patient but meals were very slow arriving. In fact little ones... More

I had a great experience at Olives. I certainly would recommend. Great food and service; worth every penny and more. Nice, relaxing atmosphere for business or personal.
