A big thanks to the team at Olive, we had party of 10, the service was excellent, the food was divine and the atmosphere was just perfect. Olive is a sensational restaurant, a perfect combination of fine food friendly staff and a welcoming ambiance.

Back in the area catching up with friends. Went on the recommendation of others. Service was fair, very pleasant lady took our order ad could not have been more helpful. Wine prices very excessive. Mixed entree of breads zucchini balls dips and cheese triangles very nice. When our entree was cleared our main meal cutlery was just dumped next to each person. The chicken dishes were apparently good Snapper was fair, Veal was nice but disappointing and Angus steak rare was tough fatty and very disappointing. Difficult to get waiters attention for coffee, felt rushed to drink it and heating was switched off so forced to go. Meals reasonable price and would give it a second try.

My partner and I went to Olive at Hawker last night for a belated birthday dinner. Let me start by saying that the food was very good but that was were the good ended.

The night started off OK. Bottle of water on the table, wine and meals ordered and the waitresses friendly.

The entree took a while to arrive but they were very busy so we weren't to bothered by that. When the waitress came to clean our table after the entree, we were asked to keep our knives and forks because they had run out of clean ones. The waitress cleared our table and took the empty water bottle but did not replace it with a fresh one so we had no water.

It took almost an hour for our mains to arrive after we finished our entree and we asked for clean cutlery which they provided. We ordered wine with our main meals which didn't arrive until after we finished our meal.

The staff were clearing the empty tables around us while we still had our empty plates on the table and none of the waitresses came and asked if we wanted desert or coffee.
