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.

“Tasty Treats!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Riviera-style cafe on the banks of Scottsdale Canal in The Old Town - this lively eatery offers an eat-at-the-bar, indoor and terrace tables under twinkling lights as the warm desert air breezes through. Enjoy a wide selection of tasty tapas appetizers including dates wrapped in bacon, 'mechego' bruschetta with chorizo or hummus, then share an entree of chicken stuffed with mozarella and prosciutto and a kale, candied pecan and blue cheese salad. Prices are great value ($77 for two inc. glass each of chilled NZ white) and service is friendly and efficient.

“Dinner for all ages”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We have been to this restrauant several times and have never been disappointed. Whether you are older and want a nice dinner or younger and want to lounge on the patio with cocktails and a lighter menu, this place fills the bill. There is adequate parking and you can easily walk through old Scottsdale or along the canal.

“Enjoy inside or outside meals”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Upscale restaurant, AWESOME service, and not too long of a wait~in season! We ate outdoors after enjoying a cocktail by a fire pit. Food was plentiful and delicious, drinks were good, as well.
Six of us at dinner, not one complaint! THAT was unusual! Great atmosphere and location.

“Great spot...”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Came recommended to us via Becca of Scottsdale Segway Tours.

We stopped in for dinner and were seated on their outdoor patio.

Service was excellent, food selection was very good.

We started with 3 types of bruschetta, all outstanding!
My wife had a green salad as her main course, which turned out to be huge and very good.
I had the salmon and it was exceptional.

We were so impressed that we returned for their happy hour on our last night in Scottsdale. Again the food, this time we did the flatbread, was excellent and their happy hour drink selection was very good. We were enjoying the atmosphere so much that we didn't leave until after 10pm (we arrived at 5pm). At no time did we feel rushed or get the impression we had overstyaed our welcome.

Absolutely our favorite stop for food and drink during our short visit to Scottsdale!!

“Great Location and Great Food”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The great location, good food and the atmosphere make this a restaurant that we often frequent. You will not be disappointed. It has a casual atmosphere during the day and then a more trending vibe in the evening. A lot of pre-clubbers!
