I have heard so much about Olive and Oil; it really is very popular. We went there at the end of the week. Service is excellent. Prices, however, are woefully exaggerated for the quality and quantity of the food. Beware the cheaper of the two seafood platters (name escapes me): I would advise the menu designers to indicate clearly that... More

Olive and Oil Glenwood does not only have scrumptious food, it also has very professional service oriented staff. I have no less than 3 lunch meetings and one dinner at this restaurant and still have more visits to do. My friends now know about this restaurant. I will be sampling it again with my friends on 16/9/2014.

Great place to eat if you are in the Glenwood area. Menu is decent as is the quality of the food. Comparing the current experience to that of a few years ago, I do think they are better than what they were. Service is somewhat slow, something that is not new, but better than what it used to be.

Food was great and the service was very good. There was the regular menu and a lunch menu which was great as an alternate option. It is the only restaurant in the area which is suitable to entertaining business associates.

Pleasant ambiance. Good food. Attentive service. Centrally situated. Good place to meet friends for lunch, or for that intimate, romantic dinner for two.

We went there in a group of ten. What a disaster! The starters took 1hour. Three of us had carpaccio for starters. Carpaccio is supposed to be sliced paper thin. This was sliced so thick that I could not finish mine as it just became too rich. The others said the same. On top of it the quality of the... More

Dear O&O. We need to have a chat. Your restaurant used to be my absolute favourite place to be and something has changed. I have come to your place twice this year and both times I have been so disappointed with my meals. The first time I invited my mom and I had the captains platter... the linefish was so... More
