“Nice atmosphere, good food, steak, brochettes and goument burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

I am a semi-regular client of Olive, and I highly recommend this restaurant. The food is always reliable and prices are reasonable. I particularly like the appetizer vegetable plate; the vegetables are marinated and then grilled. Delicious! They have something for every appetite: steak, brochettes, salmon, etc. For the simpler palatte they have gourmet burgers and fries. There are about a dozen different ways they do up their burgers, so its always fun to choose a new burger flavour. The only downside is that the restaurant is very busy at suppertime, and the service is a wee bit slow sometimes. So, to get a seat quickly you should arrive before 5:15 or after 7:30. In between, you may (or may not) have to wait.

“Best Filet mignon in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

We often go to this restaurant and our choice for a good filet mignon is Olive & co. There's other places for steaks but way too pricy. The ambiance is very good but very busy on the weekend, so go early if you don't want to wait. The service is very good also. The variety is o.k. but we go for the steak. We tried other things which was also very good but we prefer the filet mignon since we are very limited in affordable steakhouses around. The desserts are very good and they will flambé the bananas in front of you; nice performance.!

“No reservation, No loyal customer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2010

I went to this restaurant once, because I was told it was great. The food was excellent, the service was great and the atmosphere is very nice and modern. The only think I dislike is they don't take reservation unless your are a group of 10 or more. For me it a big drawback. I don't feel like waiting inline (or at the bar) half an hour and possibly more to be seated when I want to plan an evening out. Honestly I would probably go more often if I could reserve a table, but unfortunately waiting inline is not for me!

“good place if you dont mind the waiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2009

We have been there twice and both times like most restaurant in Gatineau - Hull, you have to wait a good 30 minutes to get a table, first come first served.. The manager takes care of the waiting guests by patting a basket of warm "amuse geules" entrees. very nice gesture. You can even order a beer in lione, try that in Ontario... lol they have laws there, i forgot how civilized they are. Once served, all is good, California wife is offered, some Aussie if i recall well. The California F.F. Coppola is their best choice.

“Hidden Gem. Love it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2009

Delicious mediterrean food (mostly greek) for very decent price. Good size portions and fresh ingrediens. Solid menu. I also love the stylish and modern decor of the restaurant. The staff is friendly but some of the staff members are not fully bilingual. Casual, comfortable, and offering a great experience.
