The very best dinner we’ve had outdoors this year. Dmitri welcomed us, gave great advice and delivered on his promises. He and his Mom opened Black Olive 27 years ago and despite being off the Fells Point main drag, every table was taken and the...pickup window was busy all night. Locals know where to go for a great dinner. Overtip because Dmitri shares tips right down to the dishwasher. We will be back frequently.More

In Baltimore for business with my beautiful wife, her friend recommended Black Olive for lunch. We had prixfixe: lamb meatballs, mezze, grilled sea bass, chicken slouvaki. Also had to try the grilled sardines in grape leaves (so good!) Yogurt with mango, honey and nuts (delicious!)....Best lunch we've had in a long time. Everything was delicious. Service was excellent. It was so good we made a dinner reservation for the next night.More

I know it is a small thing but the simple greek salad they serve is Awesome! The tomatoes were fresh and flavorful, the peppers were crisp and full of flavor. I went here twice in the last 30 days, once on restaurant week and it...was busy. Then for lunch and it was deserted but the food is awesome. The first visit there were four of us and we had a variety of dishes and they were all great. I highly recommend this resturant for great Greek food.More

Our favorite Fells Point restaurant! Nice wine selections, very fresh fish ( although my preference is to not see the fish prior to preparation...but one can if one so chooses).

The fish was amazing! Our waiter (Daryl) did an excellent job describing the menu, the food and a bit about the restaurant. We had a great time and will definitely return.

The Black Olive is a Greek restaurant with the freshest seafood. The Octopus Salad is the bomb. The fresh is simple but is great.

This restaurant is on a little street in a quaint brownstone. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming when you arrive. They have a bunch of different intimate rooms which makes for a very nice dining experience. Our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful. The...homemade bread with their special sauce was excellent. The fresh fish menu is extensive and they will filet your fish for you tableside. A very nice dining experienceMore
