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.

We went mid week and the Olive and Ivy was hopping. A warm and inviting décor, friendly staff and a relaxed dining experience created just the right atmosphere for good conversation. The selection of food was good and the quality excellent. Everything is made onsite with an open kitchen.

I am addicted to Olive and Ivy's focaccia and pesto. I would go there just for that! We enjoy eating out on the patio along the canal. Indoors not so much - the noise level is so bad I really can't hear the wait staff. Food is consistent and good. Service can be slow when they are busy. (But then you get more bread and pesto!) Good place for lunch or brunch and then shopping or a stroll along the canal after.
One issue - our son who is a waiter noticed that our server touched our glasses with her water pitcher - a definite no no for sanitary reasons!

Excellent location, staff and food. We were lucky that the weather was nice so we selected to sit outside overlooking the river walk. The placement of trees and umbrellas will assure that you receive relief from what can be a very hot outdoor experience. The staff is professional, knowledgable and quick to address any needs the customer might have. My wife and I both had the Mediterranean salad, mine with chicken and hers without. The salads were fresh and very good. Presentation was nice and everything expressed quality from the bread and pesto appetizer to the dessert. Inside dinning area looks very nice although could get a bit loud if completely full. We had to wait about 20 min on a Sunday afternoon to be seated but we feel that it was well worth the wait. Will return what more can one say...

The best meal we ate in Scottsdale and beautiful setting. We sat outside by the fire pit and we're cozy all evening. I had the butternut squash ravioli and finished my meal with Carmel gelato. A must while visiting Scottsdale!
