We've been here twice - once for lunch, once for dinner. Both meals have been outstanding. We love the menu and will go back soon to try other dishes. Their pizza is terrific; I've also had their Chicken Marsala which was excellent. The service is great - very accommodating to special requests. And they have a nice selection of Washington... More

I visit Fat Olives several times a year, and it never disappoints me. The atmosphere is mediocre, but the food is outstanding. I always prefer a restaurant that invests in their menu rather than their real estate. Pastas and seafood are always good choices here, but now I almost always order the Oaxaca pizza. The combination of toppings are the... More

This was our first visit to Fat Olives - primarily because we had a gift certificate. We had heard a lot about it before some good and some ok. We were impressed. Service was outstanding - staff kept water glasses topped off. Food was great. Will definitely come back again.

This is my second review and is prompted by their new menu.my last review was 4 stars and now I've bumped this up a notch. They have added 6 new main course items to their original fine selections. Tonight I tried the bone-in pork chop, and my wife tried the chicken masala. Both were very good. The chop was not... More

Lunch special was very good. Pizza special was limited to 2 choices. Salad was crisp & fresh. Service is better if more than one is dining- but that tends to be the case every where .

The pizza is very good; especially the ones that use fresh mozzarella. The Aegean is my favorite. Entrees are good but can be a little pricey. Wine selection is reasonable but a little overpriced -- like everywhere in the region. The atmosphere is very nice. And if you don't feel like a restaurant for a meal, the carryout pizza is... More

A friend of mine ate there. We had the appraiser fire something shrimp. The serving was extremely small it had a sauce on it but the tails had not been removed. This dish isn't finger food. We both had a steak, both were undercooked. The side was asparagus, they were the most pathetic examples of asparagus, I had ever seen.... More

The food choices are unique and different from other restaurants. The food is good and seems to be popular. I enjoy the meals that I eat there. I do feel that the prices are a little high for what I receive.

Frequent this restaurant a couple time a month. The dinner menu is not elaborate, but has something for everyone. I especially like the pork shank osso boco. This is extremely tender, falling off the bone, and virtually free of fat. In addition to the regular dinner menu items they have three different specials each night. They also have a nice... More
