I simply love Olive. Living in the neighborhood, I am there a lot. The staff is so friendly and the service immeasurable. It's the ONLY place in the Loin to go if you want great food, drinks and service... all in one! The mushroom truffle pizza is like no other - literally - I have never had such a great pizza. I am also a staunch beer drinker but the staff has gotten me to try a couple of their latest concoctions... I have to say they were great (for a beer girl). Highly recommended!

After a lazy day in bed I decided it was time to head out for a night on the town. What better way is there to start off the night than with a grapefruit martini and spicy sausage pizza? ..... Yea, I can't think of any other way either. The sweet and tart vodka infused beverage hit the spot. At a reasonable price of $8, I was in heaven. Get there early to get a spot in one of the few booths. The place fills up quickly with other martini lovers.

I went to Olive one time in 07, was attracted by the name of the place and it was near to the place I was staying. Nice bar and simple yet wonderfully interesting menu. It is nice and clean, good music, comfortable atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff and owner. They all worked hard to please, more than expected. I will definately be going back this year. Thanks - 'Olive' - for going above and beyond expectations.

My friend and I went here after work and it's a perfect Happy Hour place with great music and a good looking crowd. The bartenders are knowledgable, friendly and they pour a great mojito! I would definitly go again. Didn't try the food but it looked pretty tasty so I will the next Thursday night out!

I went for an art show, and it was wonderful. Everyone in there was so nice and cool.Not too many people know about it so it is quiet. I love this place and I will be going back for sure! They have a great staff and everyone is so nice. I broke a glass and usually at other places I would have to go find someone to to help me pick it up, but someone came within seconds of the glass breaking, and no one got mad. This place is drama free and a wonderful place just to go chill and have dinner.

Oh, I love the thin-crust pizza here! Try the mushroom and truffle oil pizza. And of course the Martini's with stuffed goat-cheese olives. Chill music in the background, nice booths. I had a crush on one of the bartenders for a while while i was single. I'm over that! But I still go there.

Olive is a nice little joint for a drink, and it's near the Great American Music Hall if you need to grab a bite before a show.
But, the food is only so so, and in my opinion not worth the price. The calamari was breaded with something that was slightly sweet, and the squid itself was more mushy than firm. The tuna was overcooked. The creme brulee tasted fine, but the glaze was too thick.
I'd try it again before not recommending it for dinner, but I'd definitely recommend it for a drink. It's a place where you can actually sit and chat with friends while having some yummy drinks and enjoying a nice vibe.
