We went for dinner on a week night and had the place mostly to ourselves. Their breads are to die for and the hummus plate we got was excellent.

Olio has been recommended for years and after finally dining there, I understand why. The flavors of each dish are executed beautifully. I couldn't begin to explain how delicious everything tasted. From the hummus and fresh bread to our entire everything was fantastic. Our waitress kept us on track with time, without making us feel rushed. A few complaints. It... More

The egg salad is delicious as advertised. The waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. Cool/ funky spot with a very nice outdoor area. Need to come back in the spring. Seemed a bit pricey .

We dined at Elaia, and although our meal was enjoyable, it seemed to be missing something for the price. We are used prix fixe dining so we aren't expecting large portions at this price, but the food overall did not wow us. We did dine in rather late so we aren't sure if this was the reason for the food... More

There were six of us for dinner at Elaia so we got to sample just about everything on the menu including the optional charcuterie and cheese plate as additions to the prix fixe. As two of us were virtually non-drinkers whereas two were aspiring connoisseurs, the sommelier recommended a $120 Rioja, which turned out to be the highlight of the... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and despite the hour, there were a few people at the bar. We ordered the Hummus with Lamb, Chicken Tagine and Roasted Cauliflower. All was flawless, perfectly spiced and cooked and presented beautifully. Our server was great too, after we ordered he brought us each a glass of spiced warmed wine that was... More

We've been to Elaia but have been wanting to try Olio for a long time. We went for dinner on a Saturday evening and were seated right away. We ordered the Hummus with braised lamb, the Chicken Tagine and the Kale salad special. The kale salad was mixed lightly with chile flakes, tossed with a umami packed anchovy dressing, and... More

Cool atmosphere; it had a hipster vibe. They have revamped an old car garage to a nice restaurant. Their food and drink selection was of a good size.
