Fun place for an easy-going dinner

Great food, fun atmosphere, and of course nice wine options! The ONLY drawback was that I thought it a tad pricey. The prices were comparable to a sit-down restaurant, but you order at the counter (similar service set-up to a Panera Bread). But the chicken salad is to die for, and I would go... read more

The cafe has a delicious assortment of sandwiches and pastas. I enjoyed the veggie wrap, pesto pasta and glass of white wine (local). The place has a great rustic design appeal that creates a cozy atmosphere for any size group.

Our hotel recommended this place to start an afternoon of wine tasting. We had 2 large antipasto and cheese platters (different content on each) and some of the local Reisling to get us in the mood. Between the two of us, that was more than enough food at lunch time. The presentations for both were very artful and the flat... More

The food is good, the location central, and people of all ages and many means favour it for either eating in or take out. Seems to be a bit of a local hang-out. You order at the counter from a wide selection of pizzas, salads, decadent desserts, and drinks (many wines by the glass from local wineries). As a people... More

I really love Olive. It's got a great vibe, lots of room to schedule meetings, or have a meal or relax with a glass of wine and read a book. Great food, fun atmosphere, live entertainment on occasion. Comfy couches, nice people, downtown location, what more could you want? I go there often. Locals love it!

Like a big Starbucks for wine and beer. Great atmosphere to chill out in if you aren't in the mood for only coffee.

I have only ever received good service at the Olive, which was a major switch from the previous establishment which was always terribly lacking in service. The food to purchase in house is very good. I especially like their pastries and pizzas. And the cheese and meats for purchase to take home from the deli case are also quite good.... More

Olive is superb!! The type of place you can go over and over and never get tired of it. Fabulous thin crust pizza's, an ever changing variety of homemade soups, fresh salads are amongst the true winners on the Olive Menu.. a great atmosphere. ...seating options that include tables and couches... And open when and after other options are closed.... More
