I had previously visited this restaurant and had been fairly happy. I went recently and while one friend's lamb was delicious, another returned his souvlaki skewer as inedible. I had the same and had to admit it was very overcooked. Something else that rather odd was that there was a picture of food in the menu which looked delicious, but... More

Visited Victoria a couple weeks ago and was hunting for local eateries when I found the Olive Grove with its traditional Greek and Mediterranean Food. My meal was a display of beautiful fresh ingredients in large portions at a reasonable price. I must add that the staff in this establishment bring a sense of welcome rarely seen nowadays, contrary to... More

Dinner out with a Girlfriend on Friday night( the Med Grill was packed full so we ended up here unfortunately) The place was almost empty, dirty tables everywhere and Staff that were dressed like they were going to a Night Club. We ordered the Moussaka Platter and is was disgusting. Our Server was lovely and tried to help us out... More

Dear banana, Thanks for posting such a ridiculous review. All my customers know that what you are telling is a tale that is so blatant that has no basis . Our restaurant has reputation for exclusive Greek food that has been serving for over 40 years . A recipe that is so unique that it's not even found in Greece.... More

Tasty food prepared and served by very friendly staff. Lots of variety in their menu and most of their regular items can also be found in the Celiac section of the menu. We go there often and I order only from the Celiac section of the menu. I appreciate having lots of items to chose from and that they serve... More

Service was very prompt and polite. Atmosphere is dated but quaint. Food was not good. We each ordered a pasta dish and greek salad. It was served with bread and a red wine vinegar olive oil dip. The greek salad had unrippened, tasteless vegetables and salad dressing. The bread was burnt on the bottom and tasteless. The pasta was just... More

A hidden treasure, locals' favorite, best Greek food I have ever had outside of Greece. One of my favorite and most often visited places for both lunch and dinner. The meals have generous portion. Must try roast lamb platter for dinner (best value), and moussaka, calamari, and spinach pie meals for lunch. Pita included in all the meals is just... More

We ordered our meal to be delivered to our hotel room (Hotel Oswego) through the Dine in Victoria delivery system. It works great; delivery as promised and quite warm (but we were in a suite with a range to warm food if neede). We ordered calamari, greek salad and a chef salad. Everything was fine, even better than I expected.... More

My book club had 3 members who are Celiac and one who is also Lactose free, so the Olive Grove is a great place for us to eat. They have a large Gluten Free menu as well as many other delicious choices for others. The Celiac members each got one of their Gluten Free pizzas then shared among themselves. The... More

My husband and I ate here in late November 2016 when unfortunately for me I was in a great deal of physical pain from an arm injury.

Everything was great (Service and food) The only thing I didn't like was the enforced tip. I always tip well anyway but believe it should always be an option.-----
