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.

“Sweet Potato Cannelloni! ”
Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

This was our first night in Scottsdale and we were looking for a place to have an early dinner. The restaurant has a lovely outdoor patio and the heaters did a perfect job keeping us comfortable. We started with wine and the bruschetta trio. The tomato relish and mozzarella was my favorite. Next we had a flatbread with basil and mozzarella. The best dish was the sweet potato cannelloni. I can't express how much I loved this. My husband agreed it was extraordinary. I will be thinking about that sweet potato cannelloni for a long time!

“Fun upbeat with delish food and great service”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Sit on the patio to enjoy the view as well as delish food. Enormous Caesar salad and wonderful flat bread pizzas. Servings very generous. Service above and beyond. Fun location so take time to walk around the area.

“Fabulous experience!”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

That was the first restaurant I was taken to, in Scottsdale, and honestly one of the best. Service is amazing, staff is really helpful and fun. Food is delicious, there are no words to describe it. Must try!

“Just fantastic...”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Met two other couples at Olive & Ivy, and the experience was just fantastic. The food was wonderful - the taste, the presentation, the assortment. I had the lamb meatballs small plate followed by the kale salad - both delicious. My husband had a custom artichoke/mushroom/shaved parmesan appetizer followed by the mediterranean salad. My husband was impressed by their ability to spontaneously adjust their artichoke hearts starter on the menu to accommodate his ingredient requests, and have the dish perfectly balanced. Others in our party enjoyed the sea bass, the chicken scallopini, and the ravioli. The outside environment was wonderful, and there were many warmers distributed to keep us comfortable. And our server was incredibly attentive.

“Funky Atmosphere, Great Food”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Was in Tempe for a workshop, after eating at the Mission on Thursday night, sought out TripAdvisor for new eatery for the night; lots of pressure after the Mission--colleagues counting on me. Olive & Ivey came through. Arrived on time for our reservation; seated promptly in a cozy booth for five. Wait staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and informative. This place wins hands down for the groovy atmosphere; DJ playing mix of house and contemporary music, people enjoying conversations all around us; and attentive wait staff. Despite how full the place was, staff really know how to make you feel like you are the only person in there. Good menu. I tried the soup of the day and the appetizer bruschetta, both were yummy! Colleagues had risotto shrimp, flat bread pizzas, and scallops. I had Mediterranean salad, loved it, nice mix of greens, nuts and cuscus. Desert was homemade gelato (chocolate) with a shortbread cookie, Yum!. I'd come back on a Friday night just for the great DJ music and hanging out with friends.
