Fresh, Tasty, Budget Friendly

I work in the area and found this place. Have been going back and will go every week. The prices , food and service are all great and food is top notch. Sandwiches are made to order, but fast. Ingredients and toppings are all fresh and that is what I look for. Fresh, healthy food.

The appetizers are a meal alone or we take five people and share several appetizers then branch out on our own sandwiches or platters. Outstanding hommus, tapenade and baba cannot be matched, even in the more expensive establishments. Would love to meet the chef, but he is a busy man as he also has Vinings location. Tip, go on Mondays for half off wine bottles, great spot to share a bottle with a co worker and some great hommus.

Excellent falafel, Very Fresh

Loved the place. Went with a large group of friends and had the best time and great service
We were a party of 10 and quite a diverse group with many questions. The server was excellent, quite attentive and the food was very very good and so fresh. I have eaten alot of mediterranean in many cities and just found this place via groupon.. I bought my groupon and went alone with it and enjoyed the food so very much and the service that I went back with my party of 10

We had alot of appetizers and really enjoyed the thick, creamy hummus. It is hands down, best in the city
I had been to a place nearby Olive Bistro with a friend that lives near the park and had tried their hummus and falafel and what a let down that had been, so I had given up on good falafel in Atlanta until groupon had Olive Bistro

The fresh, good quality olives in the greek salad and on the antipasto we shared were great. we also had a feta appetizer and babaganji, they were outstanding

I had falafel wrap with fresh romaine and tomatoes, tahini and hummus. Crispy warm falafel and fresh, good pita wrap made it tops for me. It was so much, I had to take some home as we had shared so many great appetizers, then had wonderful baklava for dessert.
My only wish is that they had draft beer. They do have a good selection of wine and bottled beers

I am now a regular and go at least once a week
This is great food, really inexpensive , generous portions and great service

Canned black olives... enough said

I just can't believe that people giving this place 5/5 stars have actually eaten Mediterranean food before.

Fresh... uhhh, no. Okay, the cucumbers in my greek falafel wrap seemed fresh and the lettuce was not brown, but the rest of the wrap was just not good. The pita was not fresh. It had that ""this has been sitting around awhile"" type taste. It was old. The ""feta"" in my wrap was in such small pieces that I swear it was mixed with cottage cheese. And the black olives in my wrap were the sliced kind from a can. Yes, I know, I can't believe it either. The name of the place is the Olive Bistro. You would think they would use better olives than that. The falafel was less than so-so.

I also tried the hummus. It was very, very thin and the flavor was not that great.

Needless to say, I will not be going back. And, if you want real Mediterranean food, I would suggest you go somewhere else.

Twenty minute drive and refused service!

I was so excited to go to Olive Bistro. I read the rave reviews and drove twenty minutes through traffic to get there. I have an onion allergy so I called before purchasing my groupon to make sure I'd be able to order. The employee listed a 5-6 items that were onion free. When I got there, the same guy (Scottish accent)said they didn't have anything I could eat. He blew me off and kept attending to the seated customers. He even took another walk-in customer's order who came in after me. I waited patiently trying to be positive and finally found three items I could have. By then, 20 mins had gone by. I was going to pay and he said I couldn't use my groupon because it was dine in only. 'Okay, I'll eat here.' Then he said ""You already told me you were getting it to go."" I said that was before I knew you couldn't use your groupon on to go orders. ""Then you should have read it, I can't serve you."" He refused to take my $ or honor my groupon and said he had to get back to his seated customers, who'd been there longer than I was. Of course he also said there was no mgr. available. I don't know if he discriminates against groupies or if they just treat their black customers that way. Either way, I'll never go back. I was so disappointed and I thank God for City Search so I can share my experience.

LAMB IS PERFECT

FOOD IS SO GOOD, FRESH , AND THE SERVICE
IS FAST, FRIENDLY
I go five times a week and never eat the same thing, unless I want to because there is so much on the
menu.
I always have lamb, lamb on salads, lamb on pita, lamb kebob, lamb on pasta
You can build your own salad, and get what toppings you want
This is always fresh and healthy
The prices are good and you can tell that the meat and chicken are very good quality, not like those 5.99 places that must be serving meat surprise, that scares me

For just a few coins more than big Macs, you are eating fresh, healthy food and now the news is all over the mediterranean diet. I have been going here for years, so this place was well ahead of the times as they have been selling fresh, healthy in midtown for years and it always Rocks
They have 2 locations and both are great and always fresh, Midtown and Vinings
I am usually at Midtown, but when I visit the family, I go to Vinings. Great vibe at both places
Olive Bistro, you have my vote

Fresh and Best

The very best in fresh, healthy Mediterranean, Middle Eastern food.

The homoos is always so fresh and smooth. I love the taste and the price. Tabboleh is a very nice portion, enough to share or if you are alone, go for the sides. wow, what a deal. A 2.50 side of fresh healthy salad with any of the sandwiches or meals.
It really is a very good price for good food, good health
I workout at the gym and then head to Olive Bistro for a healthy lunch .

I have also tried take- out and it tastes just as good on the go.

The sandwich is just right, not too small and not massive where you are getting more bread than fillings which is the case at so, so many places around , especially around Midtown and Emory. Who wants so much bread and so little fillings? I love Olive Bistro for fresh, filling, great prices , great service of high quality, made from scratch, healthy food. I love the owners, they are always around and you can tell that they are involved in everything, it is their food, not a franchise or chain, local owners that love the food and love to share it with us. I have been eating at Olive bistro for well over 10 years, and go many times a week. I feel like family and that is how they treat me and all that they break bread with, they never skimp.. Quality stuff.

Everything is Good

This place has it .Local vibe, local owners, no attitude, no pretense

Love the new girl, I think she is Katy. Very friendly and helpful. I tried this early in the summer and had a great server, and went back last week and on Labor Day.Very busy on Labor day, yet Katy made it fun and took good care of me

I have eaten in and ordered to go and it is all so good, fresh, reasonable prices and just the right spice in it all. Love that falafel
I dream of homus and dipping that pita in it all
I like having it close enough to walk and it is always very clean and the servers very nice
I always end with a turkish coffee and baklava

Next time, I am trying the lamb.
You rule, Olive Bistro. I hear you have another location in Vinings, will try that when I go to the Cobb Arts center

Katy told me she will be there some
Wish you had breakfast. could use homus and bagels from you
