We were out in the convertible Roadster, travelling a loop up HWY 35, over to Bracebridge on HWY 118 and down to Orillia on HWY 11, to enjoy the spectacular Fall colours. We decided there was only one top-notch restaurant for dinner, to end our day in a special way.... and that was The Grape & Olive. We were seated... More

We had our wedding reception at the Best Western Mariposa 9 years ago today. We celebrate every year back at this restaurant attached to the hotel. The food is always amazing as well as the service.

Everything was simply amazing, including the mussels and the carbonara gnocchi! Service was professional and friendly, particularly our server Norma Jean.

The "grape & olive bistro" is a restaurant you just must take an evening to try, the food is beyond exceptional,, the chefs really put that extra effort into their creations,, I tried "the duck" dish, and I'm so happy I gave it a try, it was Delish!!! The servers even went to extra mile, to make my wife smile... More

Attended here around 9 am one Friday morning. Our server was Heather who did a pretty decent job considering how many people were there. I looked at the all you can eat brunch but nothing there excited me. So I went with the Hungry Man's Breakfast ($9.00) that came with three eggs, tasty slightly spicy home fries, rye toast and...

Lovely casual dining (but you can dress up as well!) . Always eat at Grape & Olive at least once while visiting area. Always recommend the Sunday brunch. My favorite is the roast beef served the way you like it accompanied by horseradish sauce. There is a variety of breads, cold shrimp, salads etc., and beautiful, delicious desserts.

We learned of the Grape & Olive for the first time this year, and on a Monday, when many of the nice dining restaurants in Orillia are closed, we learned of the Grape & Olive, and boy are we glad the other restaurants were closed. It was a birthday dinner, and they didn't disappoint us. The service was excellent, and... More

Ambitious, but failed to fully deliver. Management should know that martinis are made with gin, hence the term, "vodka martini." All of the items on the martini menu should be offered with gin as well as vodka. Shameful for a, "martini bistro," to offer a Gibson without the pickled pearl onions available. Also equally bad that the top shelf martini... More
