My wife found this place on-line. After we reviewed their on-line menu, we decided to meet a friend here for dinner. The small restaurant is located in a strip mall, which makes it convenient if you need to do some grocery shopping afterwards. The decor...More

Outstanding pan-Mediterranean restaurant in an unassuming strip mall. Don’t be put off by the exterior. Once inside Olive Tree, you’ll feel welcomed by the friendly staff and homey dining room. Get your passport ready, because the cuisine here is like a cruise around the Mediterranean....More

I love this restaurant. My favorite has been the clam appetizer with a splash of Ouzo. All you need is a lot of bread to soak up the wonderful sauce. This time, I decided to step outside my norm and ordered the shrimp Florentine which...More
