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...

We were one of the two tables dining at the Olive Branch tonight. The food was quite delicious, served hot and quit quickly. The waitress was very pleasant. Without the restaurant.com $25 offer, the tab would have been on the high side. Z

While in town for a wedding, my wife and I were looking for a quiet little hole in the wall for dinner, and we found the Olive Branch to be the perfect spot for a cozy, romantic—and delicious—meal. The restaurant was recommended by the manicurist doing my wife’s nails in a nearby salon. She raved about the mixed drinks and... More

My niece and nephew live in West Chester, Pa. They recommended we visit one of their favorite restaurants, Olive Branch. Having eaten there before, they believed I would enjoy what they described as a fun "tapas" experience. The restaurant was decorated for the season, with a warm and inviting decor. The tables seemed very close to one another, and my... More

We have eaten here a lot of times and have never been disappointed but tonight was different. We made a reservation but unfortunately were 10 minutes late. The waitress was very polite and as we were regulars said a table would be ready in 10-15 minutes and she promised she would call us on my cellphone as there is no... More

For a table of six we were smashed up against the wall the food took about four hours to come out which is ridiculous. I understand the tapas come out as they want but that was way too long. I will never go back there and I suggest you don't even try!!!

Beautiful ambiance, sublime Italian tapas -- nice servers. Marie and John do a great job here. They catered our wedding at Faunbrook B&B and it was absolutely terrific. Can't say enough nice things about the food and ambiance and service. You'll love it.

The food is delicious but the price isn't. The theme is tapas and tapas is what you get. With small plates from their award-winning stuffed figs to their stuffed pork tenderloin and lobster mac and cheese, your taste buds will be satisfied. I don't fully get this place. The first thing that the waitress says when you sit down is... More

This was our first visit to the Olive Branch after hearing about it from a few people. Lots of character, small and intimate, very cool water glasses, and clean. Felt like dining in someone's home -- very relaxed. Had the baked brie which was truly the best brie dish to date. My son had the lobster mac & cheese and... More

Our lobster ravioli was somewhat cold and had hard edges. There were three on the plate, and it cost 14$. Our bread plate consisted of halved potato roles turned upside down in hopes that we wouldn't notice that they had just been purchased at a discount supermarket. While the chicken sausage was cooked (from the sausage plate), the pork sausage... More
