Friendly Staff and good food

We've been coming to Olives since they first opened- included their other location. On our last visit we had very good service. She was attentive, friendly and catered to every need we had. I thought our food was above average. I was impressed with my filet. When she brought it out I asked if... read more

The restaurant feels like you stepped inside an Italian Villa. The staff is beyond welcoming and make you feel very at home. The chef is fantastic and the food was incredible. The wine selection was fantastic.

Last Saturday of the snowmobiling season we chose to eat at Olives. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and seated promptly. A good wine list was offered once we asked for the wine list. We then started w a Crab Cake Appy that was clearly not homemade and you only received 1 for $12.95, we then ordered Veal... More

This was our third time visiting this restaurant as a winter weekend getaway with friends. The first year was a very good experience. Great food and wonderful service. Last year the service was slow and the food was not as good. We thought it was due to the large banquet going on in the hall next door. This year we... More

The experience we had two years in a row on a week end get away, has to be the worst restaurant experience we've ever had. Only one other table on a Saturday night should have been our first clue. Had reservations or party of six, waited 45 mins for a cup of soup, the wrong soup I might add, and... More

During a recent visit to the Mayville NY area, my wife and i had dinner at Olives. Although not our first time (numerous previous visits), we enjoyed this meal every bit as much as in the past. Although pimarily an Italian food establishment, I decided to try the salmon this time and I was not disappointed. Good service and good... More

Server was very good but it was really too many people, 18 or 19, for one person to properly serve individual full course meals to without any assistance. Steak was perfect, as was soup and dessert. Did not care for salad bowl passed around family style. Ambiance of the space could be improved; main dining room has more aesthetic appeal... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal in a special room with a group from the Chautauqua Inn (same owner). The server was very helpful and we all enjoyed delicious meals with great portions. My wife and I enjoyed seafood, others had pasta and, steak and all loved their food. A wide range of tasty desserts finished off a delightful meal with... More

We had headed for a restaurant that turned out to be closed, so we pulled into Olive's with modest expectations. They were quickly surpassed. White tablecloth service was unexpected, as was the quality of the food. The grilled Romaine salad was generous and tasty, and the caprese salads were also good, although thicker tomato slices would have improved them. Both... More
