We love Olives. It is our go to local restaurant. We have never been disappointed. Great food at reasonable prices. Love the filo wrapped chicken and the trio of Greek dips.

I never really thought I could get authentic Greek food so close to home. We ordered "to go" and the daily special. Watermelon soup was beyond perfection. Great blend of flavor and texture. Gyros were great too. We are now ...New frequent visitors! Delicious .

Olives is located in Schoen place in Pittsford. It has 3 distinct seating areas. The original dining room that is theme decorated, a new dining area and the outside dining area (with the grape vines!). All 3 offer great ambiance. The service really shines. Regardless of age or male/female, they know the menu, offer great suggestions, talk just the right... More

Good authentic Greek food, with a bit of American-ness thrown in. Quaint environment that gets crowded during peak hours of lunch and dinner. Nice patio for outdoor seating, but it does overlook the parking lot and "driveway". They do only accept cash but conveniently have am ATM in the restaurant.

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

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 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
