Good food in a nice atmosphere. Fast service and good prices. First visit i ate the Olives special sub for lunch. The second visit I ate the calamari appetizer and veal parm. Both were very good

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

As we hit the historic district for a stroll, we discovered Olive was having $3 Mimosas, Bloody Mary, and Screwdrivers. Paired this with a pear, walnut, goat cheese salad which had a citrusy dressing that made it different from others. Ambience is upscale modern and dinner menu looked great.

Stumbled upon Olives quite hungry on the way from DC to Gettysburg. Leslie was our beautiful waitress. Very attentive, polite recommendations, excellent service. We were worried about the quality because the place had only 2 tables occupied on a Sun night. Put your fears to rest because the food was delicious. We had the roast duck entree and the shrimp&crab... More

Arrived at Olives on a Monday evening when a number of restaurants are closed in Frederick. The hostess was very friendly and seated me at a table by the window to wait for my husband to arrive. She said that the waiter would be right over. He came and brought the menus, asked if I wanted anything to drink. I... More

Was in town for a quick visit and sampled a bruschetta on the sidewalk that was so good we entered and had a great lunch. I had the best chicken salta bocca I've ever had. Came with a nice fresh salad and a very good cibatta roll. My wife had Frutta del mar which came with a generous helping of... More

Limited menu, but excellent quality. Pasta a speciality. Very good service. We've dined at Olives twice while in Frederick.
