We were unable to find a place on Tuesday (many restaurants closed Monday and Tuesday). We chose Olives. I had Lasagna that would feed two and was very meaty. Wife had chicken and was happy. Was understaffed, but our waitress was extremely pleasant and worked hard to ensure we had good service.

We booked a reservation for 30 people 3 weeks in advance so they had plenty of notice. Only one waiter was assigned to us. We waited 90 minutes for our drinks to arrive. When we complained to the female manager she told us we could go somewhere else. She was rude and could not have cared less and neither she... More

The family and I decided to try this place after a great afternoon of boating. We visit this area frequently and have tried numerous other places, but not this one. We were greeted promptly and seated right away. Menus came right away as did our server. But then the clock started ticking. It was 20 minutes until we placed our... More

It was convenient when staying at the Chautauqua Suites to go downstairs to Olive's one night for dinner. The waitress had many tables to take care of but stayed pleasant the whole time. Our meals came out after the right amount of time. The house salad was delicious, and we both really enjoyed the sea scallops over ratatouille. Prices were... More

We had a great meal. Fabulous service. Don't be scared away by the up town look of the dining. It is just a good place to eat.

The place is lovely and quiet. The food was very good and so was the wine. They brought out an individual salad bowl, tossed it at the table and served it. You can't choose your dressing and I was leery of this but it tasted great. Very fresh. The artichoke appetizer with garlic focaccia really hit the spot. My only... More

We were a table of five for dinner on the 4th. We had a table in the rear of the dining room which felt reasonably private and was quiet. The waiter was not hugely knowledgable but he was earnest and nice. All five of us enjoyed our dinners; the portions were large and the food well prepared. My shrimp and... More

Our children treated 14 family members to a wonderful anniversary dinner at Olives restaurant in the Chautauqua Suites Hotel last Saturday. Everything was perfect. We had a small room to ourselves and the service from Adam was perfect. The new menu had something for everyone from 51/2 years to "over 60". We ordered everything from prime rib to pizza for...

My wife and dined there this week. Restaurant was highly recommended, so our expectations were high. We had a very sweet waitress. She was friendly and attempted to be accommodating, but was not familiar with some details of menu. We liked the crusty Italian bread. Butter, not olive oil was all that was offered as a topping. The olive selection... More
