Greek and then some

Starts with some very traditional Greek fare and expands into some more creative interpretations. Very small wine list, but you should be able to find something you like. Nice outdoor dining area in a great historic Erie Canal setting. Would go back.

This is a hidden gem! Food is terrific and service is good. Outdoor seating is a plus. Parking can be a bit challenging depending on when you go.

From the moment my husband and I entered the restaurant we felt as though our service was a burden to the staff. From being rudly asked to move all over to get out of their way (where were we supposed to stand to wait for a table?) to hearing a waitress tell the host to "not seat another person until... More

This is my new favorite restaurant in the Rochester area. The food was delicious and the service was great. Nice atmosphere at lunch time! We had the Saganaki for an appetizer, it was my first time having it and it was delicious! I had the Spanakopita and a greek salad for lunch. My friends were very happy with their choices... More

I was so pleasantly surprised with the taste and flavor of everything I ate at Olives. The restaurant itself is clean no frills, the staff is friendly inviting but the food is superior. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu a must when you visit Pittsford, NY.

The food is delicious and friendly service. The Olive's gyro is my favorite and the warm coconut bread pudding is scrumptious. The decor and atmosphere is comfortable and inviting. I highly recommend Olive's.

Quaint, authentic Greek restaurant. Outdoor seating in summer. Different specials everyday. Take out available. Cash only. Food is very good and service is also very friendly.

Great spot for a Greek inspired meal. All the usual expected items are here: numerous Gyro options, Plaki, Pasta dishes, Souvlaki, Moussaka, and even Pizza. One note though, They ONLY take cash, no credit/debit cards. (Cash machine on premisses)

Happened upon this delightful restaurant at lunch time. We love Greek food and we were not disappointed. I had a wonderful salmon salad with root vegetables. My spouse had an excellent and generous gyros. We had delicious rice pudding and coconut cake. The facility is on a lower level and very pleasant. Our server was delightful, informed and attentive. We... More

I ordered salmon in phyllo stuffed with feta and spinach which was light and delicious. My husband ordered a shrimp and pasta dish with the right amount of heat. Salads were fresh with roasted red pepper and a piquant Greek dressing. The atmosphere is a touch rustic, traditional taverna. The price was very reasonable for quality ingredients.
