Being in the middle of major construction in our home for Thanksgiving left us with a 'now, what?' attitude when we poked our heads into the Grape and Olive. We were greeted and seated immediately (granted there weren't a lot of people there) and given a menu topped with a special sheet describing Chef's 3 choices for a Thanksgiving special... More

I have gone to the Grape and Olive a number of times in the past couple of years. The menu is always interesting with some great choices. I find the staff extremely friendly and professional at the same time. I have been with girlfriends in a group on occasion and we are never rushed out when our meal is done.... More

Went for Sunday brunch. Made to order omelettes , lovely pastries, lots of variety of fruit and salads. We were a large group and took a lot of time. With no feeling of been rushed. Lovely .

We went for dinner with a party of eight, to sample the Italian Menu. Service was great, the meals were delicious. The very efficient waitress had no problem with separate checks, four in total.

Went for biz breakfast meeting and stumbled onto a sumptuous Sunday buffet. Excellent - roast beef plus a host of other great dishes. Great and cheerful service. Freshly prepared omelette, salads, greens and topped off with a great desert selection. Guess it's gonna be on our regular must stop affair now. Keep it up. GTA standard in sleepy Orillia !!!!

We were looking for a nicer then average restaurant, but we had just picked our kids up after school and were in jeans and tees. We called ahead and were told there was no dress code so we went. Because it is with the Best Western Hotel, we weren't sure what to expect but the food was fantastic. Fine dining... More

Stopped here for dinner with 3 friends. We'd just been to the afternoon showing of Price is Right at Rama and decided to wrap up a great day with dinner. Had never heard of the Grape and Olive so decided to stop in. Food was excellent, our server Norma Jean was attentive but not one of those overly pushy servers... More

The restraunt in in the best western which is definitely nothing special but we needed a place to stay. The restraunt has a beautiful atmosphere, very interesting menu. The presentation of the meals and quality was impeccable. Would with out a doubt dine here again.

We were in Orillia overnight en route to pick up kids at nearby camp. Checked out recommended places and looked at their websites - Martini Fridays sounded like fun and we were within walking distance so we headed over. We had planned on sitting at the bar for martinis, a bite to eat and wine but 2 tv screens and... More

The food was wonderful. The service was great. The atmosphere was divine. The martini bar is nice and cozy and serves the same great menu as the restaurant. A must to visit.
