Charming. Different. Good.

My wife and I were in one of those moods where we wanted a different Baltimore dining experience. Looking at the options there was something we had never tried. The Olive Room. Roof top. Al fresco. Highly rated. Organic. Sounds like a winner. Organic? We had never been to a restaurant that... read more

ZERO STARS FOR THIS PLACE; HORRIBLE HORRENDOUS SERVICE!!!!!! NEVER EVEN GOT TO TASTE THE FOOD, WE GOT UP AND LEFT!! Made reservations for the New Year's Eve 2015 dinner at 10:30p for 2 ($75 per person, so it'NOT cheap). These fools call and email at least TWICE to confirm that we are in fact still dining with them--ok not too... More

Great Thanksgiving Eve event! Great people, delicious food and festive drinks! The staff was friendly and helpful; from the receptionist at the front desk that directed me to the elevators, to the bartender that made me the perfect cocktail! Can't until the next event in the Olive Room!

Pick your own seafood and fish from a lovely selection. Somewhat pricey, but very good, fresh ingredients.

We were a restaurant's nightmare: three of us at the bar, couldn't say how many would join us, second bunch in our party came late, 16 of us stayed until way after regular closing, split the check in unequal parts. Everything was handled with utmost grace and humor. The staff could not have been more accommodating. The food deserved superlatives:... More

Hands down the Olive Room is unbelievably outstanding. Dimitris is one of the best hotel owners I have ever come across. The hotel is extremely clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is in a very inspiring part of Baltimore. When coming to The Olive Room, go to the roof top restaurant and see the duckies

Loved the view on the roof, also liked the staff, meal was delicious. The owner came over and asked about pur dining experience,he also encouraged us to leave remarks about our stay at the hotel. Green sustainable hotels are becoming more commonplace. I loved the lighting it was automatic and energy saving. The view was very romantic at night and... More

Went to Olive Room with family from out of town. Everything was amazing from the moment we stepped inside the lobby. We started with the grilled octopus, full of flavor and incredibly tender. Two members of our party did not want anything to do with it and once they tried it, it was all over. We then shared the avocado... More

The "OFF" is a bit of a pun, a reference to Parkinson disease, as we had a professional PD related event (~35 people) & also reference to the generally great other reviews on this place. Well, it's because of those other reviews why we picked this restaurant for our event. I was rather surprised for the poor experience and I... More

Dimitris S, Public Relations Manager at The Olive Room, responded to this review

While we always appreciate customer reviews, whether positive or negative, certain aspects of this particular review need to be addressed, since the head chef, in particular, reviewed the claims about the cuisine and found them to be lacking in any basis. What our chef found is that each of the menu items criticized in the review were prepared in precisely... More
