This restaurant is so small and quaint.. When me and my girlfriend pulled up we thought we were at the wrong place.. the outside is a strip mall and looks very "hole-in-the-wall"ish.. But you cant judge a restaurant by its surroundings.. service was great, food was exceptional, and overall experience was top notch..

This is fine dining within a reasonable price! The menu has something for everyone. The atmosphere is intimate and the service is always good. You cannot go wrong with their stuffed chicken. While my husband orders from the chef's grill and has everything prepared to his liking down to the sauce. (Great for picky eaters)

The Purple Olive is becoming our go to place for a nice meal when we are at Crescent Beach in St. Augustine. Tucked away in a nondescript shopping strip, it's easy to miss this gem of a restaurant. Food is consistently good and service top notch. They say that they don't take reservations but a helpful tip is to call... More

Well made food and a decent selection. Not 5 star restaurant, but so good you compare them to your favorite restaurants. I really enjoyed the meal and was very pleased hen the bill arrived. A quality value.

We tried the Purple Olive for the first time and we're not disappointed. The food was perfectly prepared with good sized portions. The decor was a bit amatureish but our dinners were top notch.
