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.

What a great atmosphere! The outdoor patio was lovely, the bar was hopping and indoors was big and airy. My husband and I shared a couple of appetizers: bacon wrapped dates and the artichokes hearts which were both wonderful. My husband then had the delicious kale salad, followed by the spicy shrimp risotto and I had the sea scallops -- scrumptious!! Obviously, after all this we had no room left for dessert, too bad! We'll definitely keep this restaurant on our "go to" list next time we're in Scottsdale!

In a beautiful location on the water (yes, there is water in Arizona). The atmosphere is so pretty yet electric, the service was second to none and the food was delicious. Good value for your money. Go there hungry!

My family and I made a reservation for 7pm on a sat night. Since we had not been there before, we were surprised to walk into a large, loud restaurant with an active bar scene in full swing. Thankfully, they had reserved a table for the 7 of us in a semi-private room away from the noise of the DJ and the bar. The food was delicious, but the portion sizes for the meat dishes were on the large size. The vegetarian cannelloni was exceptional. We would return but we would opt to share more plates.

Our last night in Arizona was at Olive and Ivy. The server was Sarah and she was excellent. The restaurant held our reservation promptly even though things were hopping on a Friday night. Food was very good too. Cannot go wrong IMHO.

We sat in a semi-private room, indoors, with a soothing fountain just outside the doors. We had to wait a bit for seating but the service by Mikki was awesome. Our group ate the tuna sandwich, the reuben, the turkey grinder, the cheeseburger, and the lamb gyro. All were exceptional, along with the soup de jour. Loved the basil pesto with warm bread as a starter. For a group, our round table and comfy chairs were just what was needed after roaming the nearby area. With the "to go" market area, visible kitchen, indoor seating, bar seating, patio seating, or sofas with coffee tables, one cannot go wrong with any of the options. We found this venue to be a "home run."
