So very good, but so very noisy!

Really great sandwiches and I got a salad. Such a cute place and you almost feel like you want to go shopping there. I took food to go because it was way to noisy to have a conversation with anyone.

Stopped in here to get something unique and not fast food. Wonderful flavors and ingredients - but a little pricey.

We were going to the Ellen show and went to Olive & Thyme for launch before the show./ Great menu, very good service, cute restaurant and good prices. I will definitely go back.

Great lunch locale and fresh and simple menu. Ordered the turkey club sandwich and salads which were tasty. Would definitely recommend this place!

We went to Olive & Thyme for lunch on a recent trip to LA. Simply, it was fantastic and we wish this place were close to home--we;d go all the time. It has a wonderful, gourmet selection of salads, sandwiches and desserts. And the only thing better than the food was the wonderful and friendly service. Everyone working here acted... More

There are so many delicious items in the deli cases that it's hard to decide. I was trying to eat low-cal, but then I saw the lasagne with bechamel sauce. HAD to have it and I did not regret it. Divinely delicious from the first bite. Sometimes calories aren't worth it, but Olive & Thyme definitely makes it worthwhile. The... More

The overall ambience of the restaurant is nice, the owner is very personable and comes to your table to see about the meal and the food is good. Service time is slow, the main menu unremarkable, and if busy, you might share a table, though that worked out okay. But, as for a place to go for a nice glass... More

Really loved my food, the atmosphere is awesome. What a great addition to our great city. I didn't get enough of it and still want to go back and look in the shelves and cases - there was just so much to see. I look forward to going back and trying something else because everything looks great. This is not... More

Just walking into Olive and Thyme is like being in a French cafe! The shelves of sundry items-from gourmet savory spreads to chocolate-is stunning and inviting. The food is fresh and very tasty and nicely presented on a wooden board. I had the turkey ,arugula and preserved Meyer lemon sandwich -served on a toasted rustic bread. My daughter had the... More
