We love eating at Olives everytime we are in town. The staff is very attentive, the dinners are delicious, and the desserts are worth every calorie.

Pleasant atmosphere and friendly service! Ordered flank steak that was overdone and had a gravy on it that made it unpalatable. Wasn’t expecting that. Try other options. The bread that was severed was very hard.

I definitely recommend OLIVES. When traveling to Mankato I certainly did not expect to find such great food at a quaint restaurant connected to the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown. I was very pleasantly surprised how good the food was and I will go again...More

The restaurant is full service including room service. It’s very popular with the locals and we couldn’t get an early spot on a Saturday night. The breakfast brunch was pretty good, especially for the price of 10.99. Eggs Benedict, regular hot stuff and a nice...More
