Owners personally seat you and cook in an open kitchen right in front of you. Menu is exceptional! If you don't see something-ask they'll try and make it for you. Professional waite staff is on the money and you'll never say "where is he?"

We had a fantastic first time at this restaurant a week ago. We happened upon a BOGO dinner, three courses for $25. We had a feast and enough to take home for another dinner. Even if we paid regualr price, the value is incredible. The quality of food and preparation was beyond our expectations. It was fine dining in a causal (no white tablecloths) atmosphere. We had a chicken and a beef dish, and both were excellent. Key lime pie, one of my new favorites, was exceptionally good. We are already planning a visit back and will bring family and friends.

The Purple Olive catered our intimate wedding at the Victorian House B&B on Saturday. The food was delivered promptly, set-up beautifully and tasted AMAZING! We were so pleased with the abundance of food and the quality. Everything was delicious. Thanks to Peter and Deidre Kenney for squeezing in ‘another’ wedding on the same night they already had one booked. They saved the day…in style. We highly recommend the Purple Olive - YUM!

A great little restaurant! Reasonably priced and the food is first rate! Four of us had dinner here and all of us loved our food. The dessert was excellent.

What a great little place. We found it driving along the street, and after seeing how crowded downtown St. Augustine was. This place had wonderful specials and tasty, tasty food. I'm always trying to find great vegetarian food, and this is one of the few places that pulls off fabulous regular dishes (steak, seafood, pasta, salads) *and* had awesome vegetarian dishes. I had a sesame encrusted tofu, and it was the best I've ever had in Florida.
