Any time we travel to the Niagara wine region, we stop at Strewn for a case or two of wine. They have some lovely offerings not available in the LCBO. If we have time, we also visit the restaurant. You can always count on a...More

While not within walking distance of downtown, this restaurant is very much worth a visit. The food was superb and the wines (of course) were sublime.

The service was good; pleasant, attentive, but the kitchen seemed slow. Some much appreciated fresh bread arrived quickly, but the crudités (for my wife requiring gluten free) never showed up[. Our group of 12 went for lunch on Sunday and were shocked to hear that...More

We are four couples who make an annual visit to NOTL. Last night we had our second dinner at Olive. Everyone loved the food and feel of the place and Tanya was perfect.

Was so nice to go to a place where EVERYTHING was made from scratch. Even the tiniest finishing details. The goat cheese tart was exceptional. Antipasti platter was one of the best I’ve ever had. Only improvement could be more choices on the dinner menu.

This restaurant is in a lovely setting and the food was delicious. Staff are always very friendly and helpful. This is our go-to place after going to the Shaw Festival in Niagara On The Lake.

I would make reservations just to be safe in the summer time for sure. Not sure if kids would enjoy the food it is vert good but different if your kids are picky. You might want to call a head and check to be sure.
