Olive's offers upscale casual dining near the Chautauqua Institute.

Had dinner recently at Olive's, which is located in the Chautauqua Suites Hotel. The food leans towards Italian, but chicken, beef and seafood entrees are also available. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The service was a little uneven. I am not sure if this was a new waitress or if... read more

Went for a small work party on a Friday night. My wife ordered steak and she said it was great but the prime rib I ordered was about the worst I've ever had and I have had a lot. Apps were good but that's about it. Wouldn't recommend going here we be is better

Last night our wonderful friends treated us to an awesome dinner at Olives for our 40th anniversary ! Our waiter ( I think Neil) was superior, friendly and attentive. Totally surprised us with a delicious chocolate bomb plate of goodies when he found out it was a celebration! The prime rib was excellent and the chicken marsala was one of... More

Superb food and service. Inside Chautauqua Suites Hotel and a sure fine dining experience. Indeed a must if staying at the hotel, and a short ride if not.

We had a great dinner. The portions are good sized. We split the pappardelle pasta bolognese and had a side salad and cup of soup. The bread was warm and crusty and the grape seed vinaigrette was very good. Our waitress, Sherrie was very accommodating.

The atmosphere was nice with a piano player in the room. the food was OK-- nothing special but all in all for a big group it was... More

Came just before closing and they were very gracious. Waitress discussed the wine list with me intelligently, and the salad was particularly good.

We had great breakfasts there. We had one evening meal there before a concert at Chautauqua Inst. We arrived in plenty of time to have dinner before we left for the show. The service was very slow and when we told our older waitress we had a time restriction she was snarky to say the least. The food when we... More
