We have been going to Olive & Thyme for years. It is a bit pricier than other places around, but the food is good. They have a little shopping area for different food items and other things. It's always crowded.

Love this place. Owner operator who is hands on and knows her guests and what they love. Tried several dishes. All were outstanding. Unique salads, special pastas, and innovative dishes like ricotta stuffed zucchini flowers. Save room for amazing desserts. Like red velvet brownies. You won't be disappointed here.

The restaurant was right across from our hotel, so it seemed like a good option. The meal choices are healthy and the prices are good. If you want a light meal this is a good choice. Nice staff and a good selection.

Absolutely loved this place, in fact it was a much more enjoyable meal than the $300 meal had the night before while on our trip. The food was delicious, so fresh and nourishing and tasty, not to mention generous portions. I had the steak salad and it as amazing. Hubby had pasta which was equally delicious. Great atmosphere. Nice service.... More

The service included the owner/ chef coming by and asking us if we needed anything, we... More

This place was packed during lunch but we didn't have to wait long to sit. I ordered Braised Short Rib Sandwich and it was amazing. It couldn't have been better. I also got a cookie and that was OK. If I was in town longer, I would have ordered a couple of things. I did see the girl from My... More
