I visited this restaurant for lunch twice and dinner once. Each time I was blown away by the friendly and efficient service along with the food. Great evening cocktails as well.

We went here with a large group (2 doz) and very much enjoyed the lunch buffet. The selection was wonderful and everything was delicious. Some in our party had not been there and were happy with their meals.

We had always loved going to Olives for their great food. Instead, we decided to try their breakfast buffet. We weren't familiar with their breakfast buffet, and decided to ask the waitress. She seemed unfriendly to us throughout the whole service as it was a burden for her to serve us. Like everyone else, we ordered more than we could handle and decided to get a to-go box. After she handed the box to us, she came over to a woman who looked like the manager and said something along the line of "and they even got a to-go box." The manager then turned around and looked at us. I know the waitress has been working there for quite some time but had never cared for her service skills. We would like to go back for their delicious food, but we feel discouraged

Small buffet for $10 with very fresh and quality food. Cooked to order selections looked very good as well.
