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 have eaten at Olives on numerous occasions. The menu is very good and the service is as well. New Year Eve was no exception. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation. I enjoyed the Atlantic salmon while the other 3 in the party all had the Artic Char. Both were excellent choices. If you are interested in a good... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner at Olive's restaurant this evening and it was such a pleasant experience I simply had to review it! There was a wonderful, well thought out menu with reasonable prices and even a small section of vegetarian options which is sometimes tricky to find. The food was served relatively quickly as it is fresh and... More
