A wonderful Tapas resturant

I enjoyed the Olive branch a lot. My boyfriend and I went on a Swingin Thursday night and sat out side --It was perfect. The food and service were excellent. We will definitely be going there again.

We had an amazing night at Olive Branch. Our waiter Jim suggested the Chef's choice for our party of eight. Do it! All of the ingredients were fresh and delicious. We shared our groups preferences since two are allergic to shellfish and one to beef. The evening began with a pear salad which was an amazing blend of flavors. Nice... More

I am not sure what the fuss is with this place. My husband and I had dinner here after a friend told me it was good place. We sat at our table for 20 minutes without service before having to flag someone down for it. They did comp us each a glass of wine for this. We had four courses... More

I had a table of 2 and a $70 bill. Both of us were first time customers and enjoyed the unique food HOWEVER due to the poor customer service neither will return. They would not accept my $10 restaurant.com gift certificate that says DOES NOT EXPIRE. Instead Jim changed the certificate to say "Valid Sunday through Thursday". This is NOT... More

Tonight , I went to a birthday party at this charming little restaurant. I did not bother to call ahead of time to tell them I had celiac disease since I thought it would just be olives, sausages, and similar tapas style food. When I mentioned to the waitress that I had this illness, she brought me every course( it... More

Our party of six weren't sure what to expect, but boy did we find a gem! Atmosphere is warm and inviting with exposed brick and great lighting, the waitress (Ashley) did an awesome job of guiding us through the tapas experience, and the food was tremendous! We opted for the seven courses and could go back next weekend eagerly anticipating... More

Always a fantastic experience. The food, service and ambience are wonderful. If you enjoy Tapas this is the place to go. The desserts could be better so if you are planning to go just for them you might go elsewhere. Otherwise it is a can't miss!

One of the best kept secrets in West Chester Olive Branch is a tapas restaurant that is perfect for couples of friends. The more people you take, the more dishes you get to sample! We encountered plenty of delicious tapas like mom's meatballs, chicken flatbread, lettuce wraps, duck confit sliders and more. We really enjoyed it.

Excellent service and fantastic food. Started with watermelon salad with arugula and feta cheese and finished with fresh figs stuffed with prosciutto and feta cheese. Fabulous!

We went with a group of wine and dine friends . We did have reservations. We did the 8 course Chef's Tasting for $50/each. It was quite a treat! The baby beet/goat cheese/avocado/arugala salad was delicious; their dates stuffed with goat cheese, wrapped in bacon and drizzled with a balsalmic reduction were amazing; the duck sliders were very tasty; the...
