I had lunch on Sunday at Olives with friends, and we enjoyed excellent service in a charming cafe setting. I had linguini with crab, and the lump crab pieces were large and delicious. Marylanders know their crab, and Olives delivers!

My wife and I recently visited Olives for our Friday evening date night. We're always looking to try a new place to dine. Olives is located in the heart of Frederick's downtown restaurat and bar scene. It's small, maybe 20 tables if that many and offers a comfortable private environment which is perfect for a romantic dinner with someone special. Our waitress was very friendly and made some wonderful suggestions for entress and wine selections. We were undecided on which of two wines to try and she voluntereed to bring us both samples of each. I thought that was great and added to an enjoyable evening. The food was very tasty, great service and reasonbly priced. We will return.

We have eaten here many times and the food and service are great. Our server, Allyson, is the best in the business. Even remembered our kids names. Highly recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner and feel comfortable taking the kids.

We tried their new "everything" pizza today -- it was delicious! Always fun eating good food in downtown Frederick and watching the people pass by on such a beautiful day.

We were on our way home to Montgomery County, MD from Ohio and picked this restaurant to try for an early dinner. Our waitress was outstanding - very accommodating; put us by the window, answered all our questions and provided attentive service. The food was excellent and the wine sampling (3 pours for $10) was very generous with the pour. And the wine selection was great. Frederick has a lot of good restaurants - I highly recommend this one.
