Hidden Gem with Great Food!

The Olive Tree was very quiet and quaint. Although located on busy Thornton Road, I believe it's a hidden gem. You walk in and you feel safe and comfortable. We were greeted immediately and with a smile, sat at the little bar to review the menu and sipped on a drink while waiting for the take... read more

i have been going to this restaurant for about 25 years.it has always been excellent, and still is for the most part. Service is excellent and the Clam linguini eras very good. One of my friends had that, and the other friend and I had the Greek Tour, which consisted of Gyro meat and chicken with pita bread, grape leaves,... More

White tablecloths are under glass top. They do not clean them. The side of the cloth had dried sauce spilled. Food was average but the place was dark and dingy. Never went back.

Went to this restaurant because it was closest to the hotel and we were hungry and greek food sounded good. Small restaurant, not really a lot of pomp and circumstance, but the food was awesome. I had the grilled veggies and fish-phenomenal tasting. I didn't have any, but the desserts looked amazing as well as every other persons plate that... More

We got there just as they were closing and they welcomed us in anyway! We had been traveling all day so being welcomed and served by such friendly staff was an awesome treat! The food was very good too! The only problem I had was with another table that was there. We were seated next to a loud bunch of... More

I'm staying in the area for business (I'm a writer, if you must know!) and this restaurant was close to the hotel so we took a chance. I'm glad I did. The flaming cheese appetizer was delicious as was the lasagna, manicotti and fetticcine alfredo. The waitress was bubbly but not in an obnoxious way, and she joked around with... More

This restaurant is at the Thornton Rd exit off I-20. MY service was outstanding and my food was good. I ordered the sampler that had fettuccine, lasagna and tortellini. Lasagna and Tortellini were very good the fettuccine,was very average. The chopped Greek salad was pretty good but I do prefer leaf salads. Bottom-line this is a good value for the... More

Avoid the marinara sauce but other than that it is great food. The marinara sauce is way too sweet. The meals are well prepared and presented. Service can be a little iffy depending on your waiter. A family of four came in after we did and received their drinks, salads and meal be fore the two of us did. During... More

I ordered the lasagna with cesar salad, mozzarella sticks, and 2 rolls. The salad was a house salad with cesar dressing, not a regular cesar. The lasagna wad very good, personally I wish it was a little bit thicker but overall was very pleased. Cheese sticks tasted like it was from the grocery store and not fresh made. Overall it... More

From the outside it does not look really good but when you step in the people are really nice and very friendly. They got a good selection of food italian, greek, seafood and also a few kids menus. I can absolutely recommend the greek food. It's delicous and for me as european nearly to much 😀
