“Fantastic....So glad we chose The Olive Room!”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

If you're in Montgomery, AL make the time to dine at The Olive Room. I don't often write reviews, but The Olive Room deserves recognition. The food was outstanding, prepared by a very talented and creative young chef. And, our dining experience was enhanced by the eclectic ,casually upscale atmosphere, excellent wine and superb service by an extremely knowledgable, attentive and personable server. We will definitely tell others and plan to return.

“Top-notch staff and service and kudos to the chef!”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

From the moment I called to make reservations for my partner's birthday to the moment we left, we were treated wonderfully! Patrick, the manager, recommended dining in the Elevator Room, the oldest elevator in the state of Alabama, and its coziness did not disappoint for our special occasion. Our server, also a chef himself, was so knowledgeable about the menu and explained everything in great detail, which delighted a "foodie" like myself. The food was delicious-we had the blackened redfish with grit cake and also the redfish chardonnay. The portions were more than enough and the to-die-for bread pudding finished off this celebratory dinner! Kudos to the entire staff for making this such a relaxing special occasion. We will be back on our next trip to Montgomery.

“Best Montgomery hands down!”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

Hands down the best in Montgomery! Comparable to any fine dining in NYC, DC or any major metro at a fraction of the price. Comfortable seating not crammed like most. Friendly knowledgable staff.

“BEST restaurant in Montgomery!”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

We tried the Olive Room for the first time today. We were really impressed with the elegant decor, and friendly staff. We ordered the blackened snapper with smoked gouda, andouille grit cake, broccolini, creole beurre blanc, and the pasta with fish (grouper?), spinach, mushrooms, in a creamy, spicy tomato sauce. It was the best dishes that we have had in Montgomery. We love this place!
