Amazing service!

I have to say that our waiter Jerry truly made our meal at Olio memorable. He was extremely funny, engaged my 10 year old in conversation and knew the menu inside and out. Now for the food...the chicken slider appetizer (3 sliders) was out of this world. My daughter had the blue corn nachos... read more

We have been here several times when we are in the mood for a guaranteed wonderful dining experience! The food is always on the cutting edge, and service is 5 stars. The drinks were fantastic too! Seating was a little tight, but didn't make it much less enjoyable

We have been to almost all of Carol C's restaurants and they are absolutely superb! The servers (shout out to Gerry and Stella who are not only the BEST servers, but are outstanding individuals), are always very attentive and the food is consistently superb. Olio's and all of Carol's restaurants are our benchmarks for quality. My only (mild) complaint is... More

On a soggy Sunday evening, we checked into an inn in Groton, Ct. We asked for a dinner recommendation from the desk clerk and she responded with no hesitation "Try the Olio. " Her advice was excellent. Located within a very short distance of Route 95 on US 1, the Olio's parking lot said "folks like to be here". We... More

Enjoyed a very nice dinner here. Wait staff was personable with good selection of dinner choices. Appetizer and main dishes were as described in menu. Overall, a pleasant dining experience.

Olio Restaurant & Bar - Groton, CT - 6/25/2015 I've lost count how many times we've been to Olio. The service is impeccable, the food consistently good and tonight was no exception. Our regular waiter who was hosing this evening, always greets us at the door with a smile and is super attentive to my elderly mother-in-law. They serve warm... More

Sandra and I stopped here for a quick lunch before heading to Boston for Business. First thing we noticed was the place was freezing and when we asked them to turn the AC down they said they couldn't because there was clients at the bar. Well the clients at the bar one guy had his coat on and the woman... More

Olio's service and quality remains consistent where creative options and fabulous tastes abound. I have yet to order from the menu as their specials are always so tempting..... But I continue to try!! Whether you choose to eat at the cozy bar (always special drinks too!!)... or sit in one of the two dining rooms, you WILL enjoy your time... More

I've done a few happy hours at Olio. The bar is small and the specials are only available in the bar but I've been pleased. We did dinner last week, my only stipulation to my boyfriend was that if a table was open in the the bar area I wanted to sit there. The dining room tables are pretty close... More
