We had not been to Olios in several years. They prepare each meal individually, which is nice for me due to being gluten free for Medical reasons. Wemlook forward to returning there as one of our favorite places and recommend it highly!

I found this place on the way back from the casinos I saw that it had to be some decent reviews so I figured I'd give it a try. The place has great atmosphere good food and very friendly staff. The restaurant is also right off the highway which makes it convenient I would definitely try it again !

On the contrary to the two previous reviews, I would have to say that our experience was great! It's Phenomenal! We are a military family with kids and we were kind of hesitant to bring our kids to a fine dining restaurant. Our server Marisol was very accomodating even with the kids. We felt her warm welcome and suggested kids... More

My Son's family and I had a wonderful meal but when we didn't order cocktails the waitress stopped being attentive. We needed more water and our waitress was nowhere around until we needed the check. To bad that a waitress can ruin a other wise great experienced.

I've been to Olio's multiple times. Business and pleasure. Brought a business associate and was a little embarrassed. We arrived early and order the special. Told it was great (I had had it before) and we both ordered. After about 10 minutes the waitress came back and told us they only had one left. That was at 6 o'clock. So... More

I had a wonderful lobster stuffed avocado dish with corn and a herbed aioli. All of the meals at my table were delicious. We made reservations & service was great. Good choice of cocktail specials also.
