Restaurant is clean and atmosphere is enjoyable inside. One turn-off of this restaurant is the location; due to the fact that it is attached to a hotel. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Good restaurant to attend with parents or in-laws. Menu consists of regular North American entrees. Price is in the mid-range.

The food was decent quality, though no more than that. What cannot go without comment is the rude waitress (Kristin). Attitude from the beginning. At first wrote this off to a bad day and I realize waitressing is a hard job. But when we inquired about the participation of this establishment in Ontario's excellent Take Home the Rest program (patrons... More

The Grape & Olive was a pleasant surprise; especially considering it's attached to a Best Western. Nervous first impression, especially when the place was almost empty at 6:00PM. A steady stream of patrons followed and by 6:30PM the place was almost at full capacity. Walking in the front door you are greeted with the smell of a typical "cheap hotel".... More

The mussels are a must have! The experience is enjoyable, the food is delicious, and the service exceeds expectations. Shauna is a lovely and delightful server. If you are in the area be sure to stop in.

Every Saturday morning we can be found having breakfast at the Grape and Olive Restaurant. Atmosphere is really nice with tablecloths and linen napkins, which is unusual for breakfast dining. Joanne and her staff are very fast and efficient when taking your order and delivering your meal, even when the restaurant is very busy. Breakfast is always delicious. Grape and... More

My wife and I were in Orillia for business in February staying at the BW Mariposa Inn. We ate dinner at the Grape and Olive simply because it is in the same facility. The food was really quite good. The service was prompt. There were multiple brews on tap. The chowder was great and the salad filling.

Nothing like a long Sunday brunch over a few coffees and the newspaper. Most importantly the food has to be good! This place delivers the best Sunday brunch around. From the omelette and waffle bar to the cold lobster and shrimps, it's quite simply the best in the area. There are six or seven hot plates with assorted veggies and... More
