Very rarely do you get a rare roast beef, but we did for Sunday brunch at the Grape & Olive. Tender and mouth wateringly juicy. And pleasantly hot horseradish. Add large shelled shrimp, shelled lobster, and attentive service and you can't get better value for your $19 anywhere. Quite literally, the best roast beef I've ever had in my long... More

The Grape and Olive used to be your average hotel restaurant. Okay, but nothing too exciting. So, we haven't been there for years. We did get an invitation from Orillia friends to meet at the Grape and Olive and so we did, but not very excited. The actual dining experience was much better than we expected! Norma Jean provided excellent... More

We went there for a special "Thanksgiving" dinner they were doing and everything was really excellent. Also, the staff are really good. I would go back there any time.

Great restaurant, prices a little high but the food and service are worth it. Great for families. Lots of booths for privacy, good place for a business lunch.

I have eaten here many times, and by far their biggest issue is inconsistency. One night everything is fabulous, the next time food is not great and service is slow. I went back for a birthday dinner last weekend, waited almost 20min to order a drink. (It was not busy). Then the server didn't return for another 15min to take... More

Four of us enjoyed dining at this restaurant earlier this week before heading to Casino Rama. The service was excellent. Although it was a quiet night in a snow storm. So can't tell you what the norm is! But. Our server was very pleasant and she was right there when we were ready for refilled drinks and bread. The service... More

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 .
