The food at the Inn was prepared very well and the biodynamic wines paired well and provided a unique experience. Loved the mixed drinks and the atmosphere as well.

Excellent service, site and cuisine. Knowledgeable and friendly. I especially loved the seafood availability--oysters/crab. Lunch and Dinner-time wine events.

I was trying to throw together my wedding in a frantic last minute rush and was so disappointed with every place I called. I found The Olive Room by fluke on a random list of restaurants (which is a shame they are so hidden). I called and actually got to speak to the owner who was so sweet and attentive... More

The service was phenomenal! The food was excellent! My wife and I stayed at the hotel the night before so we decided to visit the 5th floor for their brunch. Everything was prepared with detailed precision and superb taste in mind! My new favorite restaurant! Compliments to the chef and the staff!

My friend booked a table for 15 for her husband's birthday at the Olive Room this past weekend. The place is pretty with a lovely view, and is much smaller than I expected. Only a dozen or so tables in the whole restaurant, and less that night since several tables were put together for our group and one other group.... More

The restaurant is beautiful and our service was stellar. Unfortunately however you go to a restaurant for the food and while the food was good both seafood dishes were overcooked. I took my fiancé there for her birthday and our server was really great, the view was gorgeous but as Olive Room is supposedly a seafood restaurant it was disappointing... More

We were seated right away with no reservation as there was only one other party present when we arrived. Our server, Nancy, was very kind as to help us with all our questions we had from their menu offerings. She also helped to adjust my companion's Cucumber Mojito ($11.00) for her. She crumbed the table for us in between courses.... More

I am very anal when it comes to good service and good food. Fortunately I can find nothing wrong with my visit here. The food was great and the service was unmatched. The owner is very personable and made sure that any POTENTIAL issues were immediately addressed. I am now looking into having my next event here. J Savage, CEO... More

We ended up at the restaurant at the Inn at the Black Olive because the original Black Olive restaurant was booked. They put a table out of the roof deck for us and for most of the evening our group was the only one there. Normally I'd be concerned about that, but after the delicious appetizer of stuffed grilled calamari... More

Ten of us planned a special night of celebration and good dining at the Olive Room. Instead we got a restaurant that made this very difficult. At the outset it took way too long to get wine poured for a toast, and, with much disorganization we were then served oyster appetizers with missing oysters, and watery cream of lobster soup... More
