After spending 3 hrs in a car dealership, we left extremely tired & hungry. Decided to stop at the first place we found to eat dinner. Walked into a Cafe looking resturant to find a cute quaint greek restuarant. The food was amazing, the service top notch. We were expecting an ordinary meal & were surprised with an impressive gourmet... More

The Olive Tree is a very simple restaurant, with seating at banquettes arranged in booths, more in the style of a café. It is a family-owned and family-run restaurant. It's owned by a Greek family and several of their daughters and nieces work here as waitresses. The service is charming, efficient and very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. I... More

My mother and I headed for Olive Tree for lunch when I visited a couple of weeks ago. She loved the hamburger; I was all over the gyro...nice lunch, great server from Athens (we had a nice conversation about the souvlaki guy in Monastiraki in Athens)...nice people, good food, and never made it to the lunch buffet...maybe next time!!!!

I've only had the lunch buffet a few times here, so not sure what menu items would be like. Yes, they do have a lunch buffet. But it's not much. Mainly salad stuff (Potato, bean, greens, etc) and a couple of grilled veggies. Some pizza. They do have usually have 2-3 meat entrees thou. Examples include Greek Pulled Pork, Pesto?... More

As Downingtown residents, we have eaten here several times, and always been pleased. Last night was no exception. We brought our favorite red wine and were met at the door by Lauren, who has given us excellent service on other visits. She artfully and fully described several specials for the evening, then proceeded to do our bidding with customary good... More

I love the chicken souvlaki!! My friend and I go to Olive Tree pretty often for lunch. Lauren is our favorite waitress!! (We love Jaime and Sharon, too). The buffet is delicious, too.

My husband and I met at the Olive Tree Restaurant in Downingtown. They offer a lunch buffet that includes fresh salad items, traditional Greek dishes, seafood,etc. It was not the mass produced buffet fare that you would typically get at other lunch options. I especially enjoyed the lamb meatballs and the salad with chick peas and fresh veggies. The food... More

Dinner with friends and everyone enjoyed their meal. More than enough food for even a large appetite. We took home enough for another lunch at least. Atmosphere is casual and I would recommend a reservation at the end of the week. Plan on a relaxing evening , no rush! It is BYOB. I will definitely go back.
