“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Olive seems hidden in the middle of a busy Tenderloin block. Once inside, there's a welcoming bar, with good food (not your typical bar food), great drinks, and a lively atmosphere. The bartenders are attentive and very friendly. It can tend toward the hipsterish, but still fun. Not your typical Tenderloin bar...

“Cozy little bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Came here for the cocktails and weren't disappointed. Very friendly barmaid knew her stuff and served up a delicious classic mojito and chocolate hazelnut martini. It was a little loud and crowded, but no more than you'd expect of a bar on a Friday night. We didn't have any food, but what others were eating looked really yummy. Will definitely return!

Walked here from our hotel. The drinks were great and so was the pesto pizza.
