Olive's Greek Taverna

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.

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.

Small place with well cooked greek specialties, good service and atmosphere. I had chicken souvlaki with an excellent Greek salad- a nice IPA and a coconut bread pudding. Attentive staff.

We always enjoy this Greek restaurant. The waitstaff is always attentive, not too much, not too little. The food is always good for us. Last night we ordered chicken filo from the specials and a dinner with ground beef with cinnamon. We got the calamari appetizers. I love the little restaurant feel of this place. I'm so glad they added... More

I have been to this restaurant several times with friends for lunch. It was a beautiful day so many were taking advantage of eating outside. We elected to eat inside. We had the lemon chicken soup which was wonderful and really could have been the meal. The special was fish tacos, which we had, and they were very good and... More

My husband and I were walking along the canal path in Pittsford and decided to stop for an early dinner. There are several restaurants in that area that we could choose, but decided to try Olive's. Although we live in Pittsford, we have not been to this place in over 5 years as it is a little off to the... More

Pricey. Kids settled on mac and cheese which says a lot. The menu is fine but not out of the ordinary. Outdoor seating is very nice though.

We were looking to enjoy some outdoor dining near the Canal and found the patio at Olive's to be just right for the occasion. We started off with the coconut shrimp and then had the Olive's and Grilled Chicken Gyro's. Everything was great and reasonably priced. The wine list is a bit small but is priced right. They do not... More

We visited Olives on a normally busy Fridsy night. Had the pleasure of sitting outside on a nice July evening. My intention was to impress my out of town visitor, who is Greek, with the food @ Olives. And it was a great success! From appetizers to main meal, and finally dessert..all fabulous! Job done!
