The ambiance of the restaurant can be described as upscale contemporary, the dining room itself surrounds a large glass wine cave. The featured style of cuisine is a Contemporary-American menu with global influences, emphasized by extremely fresh, made-to-order items. Every item is made in house. Our desserts are prepared by our talented pastry chef, and Scott’s wife, Rachel Benjamin.

My friend and I met for dinner at 4 Olives. The service was very good, the filet mignon was the best that I've had since I left the DC area, and the dessert was to die for! If you are used to Midwest farmer portions, Midwest overly-salted or overly-sweet or overly-spiced food, you are going to be disappointed. But if... More

Yet again I have been disappointed by 4 Olives. I thought things might have changed when they moved, but I was wrong. In the past I have found them over-priced and over-hyped, and so they are still. Mother's Day brunch was not Happy. I received an email with the special menu and thought we should try it. I know why... More

4 Olives has the best dinner in town for an upscale restaurant. Portion sizes are a little on the small size but they all taste fantastic! If you like wine then this is the place for you. I can't remember how many wines they have available but it's well into the hundreds, if not more. The owner's wife bakes in... More

Same great food, wine, best cocktails anywhere and excellent service but much better location. They haven't skipped a beat and now they are open for lunch 11-2 everyday except Sunday. Then every night including Sundays. They have a lovely room for groups and even an open air (when the weather cooperates) dining area as well. Go to 4olives.biz to check... More

This place was a joke. It's located in a strip mall. The service was sparse and very slow. It took over 20 minutes after being seated to meet our waiter and order a drink, but we were like "it's ok, maybe the food is worth it". Well the food was not good at all. I couldn't even finish eating. We... More

Drinks are great and the wine list is amazing. They make their own tonic and it is wonderful. My daughter cannot get enough of the polenta. Desserts are fabulous. Great selection of cheeses. Food is really rich (decadent) but wonderful.

4 Olives does a lot of things right, but they also do a lot of things wrong. The food ranges from 4/5 to 2/5, the service is above average for a college town, but not good enough for this caliber of restaurant. I'd rather go to 4 Olives than one of Manhattan's many chains, but there are certainly better food... More

Six girl friends had a wonderful meal at the 4 Olives. Everyone felt their entree was outstanding especially the Crab Cakes, Olive Chicken, and the Beef Tips with the fantastic risotto. The presentation was wonderful. Save room for the creme brule. There was another party that was quite loud so they did move us to a private dining room. So... More

My husband and I were anxious to try this restaurant after reading the menu online. We drove over one hour to try this restaurant. He was ready for duck and I the scallops. Unfortunately he would give this restaurant a thumbs down as they were out of duck and the cheese plate we ordered as an appetizer. So we settled... More
