The Purple Olive has an excellent cuisine!! The restaurant is located in a small unpretentious strip mall but don't let that fool you. Once you walk through the doors of the restaurant you know you are in a unique place. If is beautifully decorated and gives a very warm and intimate feeling. I have been seated very quickly both times I visited. They have an ample wine list to go with all entrees. The appitizers are unique and delicious. Most impressive is that all breads and sauces are homemade daily. Last year when visiting St. Augustine I had the Thai Seafood. This year I had the Seafoood Bisque soup and the Seared Scallops. Both meals were delicious and extrememly generous portions. The Purple Olive is a definite for me when in town. You will not be disappointed in this restaurant. Chef Peter and his wife are very friendly and want to make sure that you have enjoyed your meal and your visit to the Purple Olive. The personal touch isn't lost at this restaurant.
