Came to Olives after going through some of the antique stores in Frederick. We ate at the bar and had two seafood pasta dishes. We requested some changes to the dishes on the menu, and they made them easily and gladly. It was happy hour, and the whole meal with drinks was around 50 dollars. This was an amazing value....

We were visiting some family in Frederick during the Holiday Season and stopped Olives for drinks and dinner on a Friday night. We sat at the bar and the bartender poured us some tasty drinks. We ordered appetizers, salads and entrees and everything was delicious! It is a nicely decorated place, great staff, and very delicious food! Stop in and... More

I had dinner in this Frederick restaurant last Saturday. It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving and we got there late after shopping. We decided to eat at the Bar and this handsome bartender served us dinner. His name was Ivan Rakitic. He had intense blue eyes and spoke with an accent even though he said he was from Louisville. We... More

Had a couple of visits that were great, and a couple just average. Service is variable as is the food. When it's good it's good. Great location and ambience. Good menue. Upscale casual food.

Returning from Baltimore we stopped in historic downtown Frederick, Md. While many and varying eating possibilities are available on Market Street we desired an Italian atmosphere and chose Olives. While a little before the Saturday night crowd, we were seated immediately looking out on the street. Our soup and salad were presented soon after ordering and our main entrée came... More

We ate lunch here in the middle of the week. There were 4 or 5 other tables occupied and the one waitress--Jade--kept everything moving. We had 2 apps and shared a salad and a soup. They prepared our shared dishes on separate plates and the amounts were perfect. Good food, atmosphere, service and pricing. The star of the show: fried... More

We ended up here after a brief stroll along Market St. It was our 48th anniversary so it's sort of "been there, done that." We were pleased by the menu, the service and the prices. To top it off, it was half-price night on their bottled wines and the evening was capped with a complimentary tiramisu!

We have visited numerous times. We have a favorite server, Chris. She has been there a number of years and is knowledgeable and goes the extra mile. She brings us extra olives without our asking, since she now knows our likes and wants. After one visit with her she remembered. She is great at suggesting what is good and will... More

My husband and I went for brunch today and had a very nice time. We ordered the $3 bloody mary and $3 mimosa. What a deal! They were both very nice drinks. I had the crab benedict which was very good. The only thing I didn't like was the eggs were not runny. There was a fair amount of crab... More
