Can't add much to all the positive reviews except to say we agree with all of them. Got to meet the chef, enjoy wonderful food and have a very good dinner. We absolutley loved our chocolate dessert. We will be going back as soon as possible.

A charming restaurant in a strip mall--locals surely know about it. A terrific coupon offer of 2 for one price, 3 course meals. Great bisque, salmon dinner and a delicious dessert. Go and enjoy!

WOW- everything was cooked to perfection. I had the local shrimp, grilled with the blue cheese dip- best shrimp of our week long stay. Husband had the mahi special which he said was out of this world. We simply did not have room for dessert. Every restaurant has specialty dishes they do well. Mine was not a "special" dish but...

One of the better restaurants in the area. The atmosphere needs work, and parking can be a challenge, but the service and food are both good.

Recently dined here with friends. We all had the BOGO Price Fixe Wednesday-night coupons that Purple Olive runs in Sept-Oct, but we all decided to order from the menu instead. Good thing! None of us had room for dessert by the time we ate our meals! Recommendation from one friend: "Filet mignon best she has ever had!" I had the... More

If you are out for a special night (willing to pay a bit more for dinner), visit the Purple Olive. You'll be surprised at the wonderful food that waits for you behind a very simple restaurant front. The dining area is a bit crowded but everyone seems so happy that there is a feeling that all of you are participating... More

We had date night and decided to try the Purple Olive; great service, great food, and excellent wine menu not over priced. Highly recommend this establishment.

Another gem on St. Augustine Beach! Food is prepared there, not heated and served. Innovative menu lets you choose a protein, sauce and side. I'm always curious about the soups (you usually get a choice of soup or salad at dinner time). The gazpacho was made with the most flavorful tomatoes (and I grow a garden, so I'm pretty picky)...

Restaurant excels in quality of food, presentation, and service. Chef/owner is a great cook always presenting sophisticated well prepared entrees with the freshest ingredients available. A neighborhood bistro with the highest standards--all at VERY reasonable prices. Always good-never a disappointment
