Made a reservation not knowing much about the place. The day of our reservation was upgraded to the main floor. We sat next to the musicians and had an upfront view of the performances. It was an amazing night. Excellent food. Mine was cold but...More

The food was excellent and the menu has been expanded...but the Saturday night musicians had no interest in letting us have a conversation (my son asked the waiter to have them reduce the volume and they did for about 5 minutes). Come on, folks, the...More

The food is always hot and fresh. Best Gyros around. Friday and Saturday nights they have live Greek music, dancing and belly dancers. Always a good time.

This is a restaurant that will be on our return-to list for a while. It was a pleasant surprise to experience such a splendid Green menu in a strip-center restaurant. Generous portions. The dinning room can be tight, especially the booths. Try to sit away...More

Classic old-school Greek restaurant ambiance, great service, and a menu to die for. And if you've never had pastistio (or you crave it like I do) you're in luck. You can't go wrong with anything on this menu. Wow. Just wow!

You have to experience the Greek culture firsthand by dining at Olive Oil on a Friday or Saturday. You may want to call ahead for reservations. The Greek music & dancers are phenomenal. The food is as authentic as you can get outside Grece. Everything...More

I usually have good food and service at this restaurant. Unfortunately the food I had today really disappointed me. I ordered the Gyro sandwich with a side Greek Salad. The salad was okay but the Gyro meat was a very small portion and the meat...More

This restaurant is in a strip center in Sawdust, very close to I-45. It is not a fancy place but is very clean. The waiters are very nice and it has a "family owned feeling" that makes it more appealing. If you are not familiar...More

I agree with Jim. I would just call the restaurant to see if they can seat that many on a Thursday. But don't think they will have any issues with seating that many people on a Thursday night.

They took my reservation. But they did not seem to know anything about it when I arrived. No problem getting a table.
