Description: Dining under the shady trees on Olive and Ivy's massive patio feels more like Southern France than southern Scottsdale. If you are looking for pomp and circumstance of quiet elegance, try the signature private-dining venue, the Stamp Room. If it's night-life, we have you covered twice with the outdoor lounge and bar. You'll enter your own little Mediterranean world the first moment you set foot in Olive & Ivy.

“Lost but Found !”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

It was our lunch stop while shopping. Finding the place was easy , but it was not really clear where we should enter and where we were suppose to go. Some on staff saw that we looked confused and finally got us seated. Yes, it was a busy restaurant. However, the service was friendly and very good as was our food selections. It was a bit noisy but we were seated in a more quiet spot with the help of our server.
The salads were outstanding and huge bnut our favorite was the Pita flat bread and "home made" hummis. Yummm! Great location with a view of the canal. Next time we will sit outside.

Went on business trip with co-worker. Had a nice chicken dish with an excellent fruit based iced tea. Co-worker had glass of wine with seafood dish which he enjoyed. Finished off with a very good gelato.

“Good healthy food”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

really like the location and beautiful outdoor seating, as well as the healthy food and good wines. It's one of the Fox restaurants, which I've never had a bad experience at any of them.

“Okay”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend who said it is her favorite. I thought it was pretty good, but wasn't my favorite. We arrived at about 7:30pm on a Wednesday night and were told the wait was about 90 minutes because we did not have a reservation. I was a little surprised it was so busy on a Wednesday but we didn't have much choice because we are tourists and didn't know what else was around. We decided to sit at the bar and eat instead of waiting. My friend had said she loves the hummus and Mediterranean salad, so that is exactly what we ordered. The hummus was excellent, but the salad was kind of ordinary (feta, almonds, tomato, couscous, oregano vinaigrette, and I added grilled chicken). I thought it had too much lettuce and not enough of the other ingredients. Also the service was not great. I understand the bartenders really want to tend bar and don't want to be servers, but when customers have ordered food they do need a little attention. They had the attitude of not being too interested. If bartenders don't want to serve food to customers the restaurant should not serve food at the bar.
