Great place to eat good food quickly and at a reasonable price. The environment in the restaurant was loud, but no problem hearing conversation at our table of six.

I went with a large group and everyone loved what they ordered...except me. I ordered what I thought was a grilled cheese sandwich and soup. It wasn't. It turned out to be grilled cheese soup. The menu is a little confusing in the way the text is laid out for that item and I was told that this happens all... More

My wife wanted something to eat while we were staying at the Hyatt and this was short walk away. My wife got the Duck Grilled Cheese and is hooked on this place. We don't live locally but she wants to go back to Jacksonville just to have this sandwich again. I really enjoyed the food and I would come back... More

I had the most amazing duck breast, over risotto carbonara. In my opinion, it takes a very good buyer to find duck of this quality, and it takes a very good chef to do risotto well - this was some of the best I have had anywhere in the world. And it cost $16.75, including a glass of their homemade... More

I've eaten here several times for lunch and would highly recommend the place. The only downside is the noise level. I wouldn't recommend it for a business lunch with a new client or where your discussing an important matter. Other than that I really love eating here.

My wife and I are in Jacksonville for a conference. The hotel staff recommended Olio as a place for breakfast and lunch. We ate lunch and both of us had the quiche. Largest piece of quiche i've ever eaten. It was delicious.

We were there for a late lunch (they are open until 3PM) and loved the place. Really good sandwiches that are pretty unique and very tasty. We had the duck/grilled cheese and a shrimp poorboy along with excellent french fries. Also went for a glass of wine each. Very friendly, food fixed to order. We'll definitely go back.

While we were in Jacksonville we stayed at the Hyatt and for many of our meals we walked down to Jackson Landing. I have to say that Olio was far and above superior to any of the places we tried in that it was 1) Clean 2) Contemporary 3) DELICIOUS! We were surprised to realize that they were only open... More

Met my daughter for lunch at Olio on a Monday, wonderful old building, a little noisy, but aren't most restaurants now anyway. Great food, I will be back!

Featured on the Travel Channel's "Adam Richman's Best Sandwich in America" for our Duck Grilled Cheese, we are located in "The elbow" downtown Jacksonville's entertainment district.

Our locals know that our Fish Tacos, Steak & Aged Gouda Cheese, and our "Deep-Dish" Quiche may even edge our the Duck Grilled Cheese. Stop by and watch our chefs prepare you lunch in our open exhibition kitchen.

Everything is prepared from scratch daily, as such some items are only available in limited quantities.
