Awesome! Great customer service. Speedy fast shipping. Unbelievably fast! Very satisfied. Even though I gave them a five star and I wouldn’t change it. I don’t recommend the gift cards only because I did run into problems with it, but the company corrected this immediately when brought to their attention. I would prefer to send a gift from here. Excellent online service and products. I definitely recommend!!! For yourself or for a gift!

Nice staff---very helpful. Can taste all oil/vinegar products. They also have smaller bottles for those who don't have large families. I find that I would be a bit nicer if they would daily make up some wonderful recipe and offer samples. I feel more people would make purchases.

We stopped by this little store tucked away in the alleys ways while in a food tour of the city. We loved the store so much that after the tour ended we came about and bought some stuff. Really really nice staff here. During our food tour we had the pleasure of our to properly taste the oilve. Learned how to look for authentic olive oil and also got to sample some snacks of course made with some of their products. We had cream cheese with a balsamic vinegar 😋😋😋😋 and there were also crackers and sausages for sample. They do let you try samples of all the olive oil and vinegar in the store. It's all self serve when it comes to the samples, just make your way around the store and use the small plastic cups to pour you a sample. They also give samples of the other products they have on the other side. Just bring whatever it is and they will get you a sample to taste. I would definitely recommend a visit if your in the city. Also if you bring back your cleaned olive oil / vinegar bottles they can refill it for you and give you $1 off for sizes 200ml and more. They also have a punch card so every 12 bottles you buy you get one free. Oh btw we got the coconut balsamic vinegar and garlic Olive oil.

All the other reviews did not lie, this place has some interesting olive oil and balsamic vinegar flavours. Bunch of spices, some cheeses, mustards, and an amazing bullet shaped cocktail shaker. I wish I lived close by. Picked up as much as I could fit in my suitcase :)

Holy Moly! I have never encountered a rider person than this store manager! I went in to return a gift. The store manager was very disappointed about that and even more so when I said I didn’t need to buy anything that day. He had to give me a gift card and he made it so complicated and was very rude through the whole process. I have never been happier to leave a store like on that occasion. Don’t shop here!!!

I’ve changed my eating habits to incorporate a healthier diet and recently discovered the pleasure of flavored balsamic vinegar. Sadly it was through someone who shared it with me. I quickly needed my own and the hunt began. FINALLY I heard of this little boutique that had various flavors to choose from. It took a little time to find it, it’s off the beaten path, but when I did I fell in love! Who knew that there was a olive oil and vinegar tasting bar with SO MANY OPTIONS?! After about 45 minutes I left with a 6 bottle sampler that I could not be happier! If you’re in Winter Park check this place out! They have other stores too, look them up! Oooh, there’s also other snacks and such to make any cocktail party a win!

The Ancient Olive has an extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff, and they are happy to let you taste any of their as-is products. Tasting new olive oil and balsamic vinegar infusions is highly inspirational, and makes you want to immediately try daring recipes with them. Prices are a bit on the high side (the smallest bottles of oil or vinegar are $6), but they would make a great gift for anyone in your life that is a true foodie.

Whenever I go to Park Avenue to eat with friends, I make it my mission to stop by Ancient Olive to sample olive oil and balsamic vinegar. This trip I picked up a new green olive oil and pomegranate balsamic for broiling and caprese salads. they also have a deal where you can have the bottles from your last purchase refilled at a reduced rate and a loyalty card. So I refilled a decadent dark chocolate balsamic and my blueberry balsamic to provide me some variety. The great thing about this place is you can sample "all" of the oils and balsamics in the place. my only caution is taste the mild oils first and save the special "Hot" pepper infusions for last so your palate can take in all the flavors available.

This is an interesting place along a hidden convoluted walk way just off the classy Park Avenue. Shop as it name suggests offers olive items, especially Olive Oils and other similar cooking items. They also offer all manner of serving items, from lovely platters to interesting patterned paper napkins. Small home décor items and even a small but nice selection of jewelry...it's a shop that has a lot more inside than the outside indicates and it's worth a stop just to enjoy the nice décor.
