I've eaten here a few times over the years for lunch and dinner. The food is decent but not great and features standard Mediterranean fare. Tasty gyro; nicely sized Greek salad (with a little too much vinegar in the dressing); LOTS of choices for appetizers and each are large enough to serve two and plenty of ways to create platter...

Thank you Gina, the great multitasker. I appreciated my heap of humus today. Olive is a quaint corner of love with a great wine selection. I often think that bc it sits among retail venues it gets lost. But then i think thats what makes it a sweet hidden gem.

I've eaten here for years and I'm sure I've only gotten the very same thing every time. It's a platter with hummus, babaganoush, white beans, tabbouleh and warm pita. I also enjoy a glass of chardonnay with it. Not the very best Medi food ever, but definitely very tasty. A great good priced place with good food and decent wine... More

The concept is pretty good but the food leaves much to be desired. The sauces you pick from are ok but nothing great. The line to go through to select your item moves at a snails pace and to just be honest it didn't seem to be cleanest to me. My partner for the night was much more pleased than... More

This is my go-to restaurant for a relaxed atmosphere, good service, and excellent Mediterranean food. I'm a vegan, and I love the Mediterranean or gluten free platters. My friends love the meat dishes. It also has a very nice outdoor sitting space. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We love to grab a quick bite to eat here. I like the Rosemary grilled chicken wrap with tzatziki sauce substituted for the sauce that comes with it. Sitting outside on a pretty day makes it that much better.

The food is pretty good here, the service can be hit or miss, reasonable prices. The falafel is really, really well done, not dry a bit. Because the dining area is so small, your better bet at lunch is to do take out. Convenient location for in towners, mid towners. Not my first choice for this cuisine in Atlanta, but... More

We were here on 1/2 price wine night , Wednesday night, we had the Sean Minor Cab Sav which was great. We started with the Genoa antipasto, a plate of olive tapenade, roasted red pepper, mozzarella, artichoke hearts, salami, and olives, it was great, they also served us hot pita with parmesan cheese, we then order our entrees, rosemary chicken...

I ate here for the first time and I loved the food and the service. I was not familiar with this type of cuisine but Gina explained any questions that me and my wife had. As far as the appearance, I loved that as well. Very nice and I would recommend it.

Overall, great food and experience. The server was very knowledgeable with regards to what are contained in each of the dishes. We are dairy intolerant (so avoid the tzatziki sauce if you are) and found that the tahini sauce was great. The face lift comment has to do with some dust and some other cleaning issues that I saw around... More
