We thoroughly enjoyed lunch here today. Great staff, an extensive menu, and solid prep and presentation. The room is very soothing, too.

Everything from wine to food is the best. Excellent service as well. We are a fan definitely and we visit OLIV at least 2-3 times every time we stay in NOTL.

OLiV is great! We had a lovely tapas lunch there yesterday. Soup (tapas size was enough, for sure) was hot and delicious. We had a mixed olive and cheese plate with almonds first and then shared three tapas items. All were excellent. Service was impeccable...and the wines were quite lovely.More

Late lunch. Code orange. Security for COVID CHECK GREAT. THOROUGH. Justin server good. Tables could be better spaced. Table for 4 tight with all tapa plates. Crowded table space. Mussels not impressive as small mussels and large empty shells with many cracked. At least half...empty. Flavour nice however. Crab cakes fell apart into crumbles. Heavy sauce. Jerk chicken salad incredible HOT—— way over done to the point of being almost inedible. Good thing the salad had pineapple chunks to cool the palate. Soup great. Bread dry. Olive oil could have been better presented as a few tastings. Over priced. Will not return.More

We chose to dine outdoors in the patio in this delightful restaurant at the Strewn Winery. The staff were young and comely and so very sweet and friendly. The ambiance was magical and the food delicious. Each course was thoughtfully presented and the super fresh...ingredients - seed to table - were evident. Most highly recommended and offering great value. It was a treat to be seated in the crisp fresh air of the evening and my wife - very COVID-nervous, felt more than safe. BRAVO to the Chef and Staff of this charming eatery.More

We got lucky - outdoor dining in 20C weather with a lovely autumn view in November! Really enjoyed the Strewn Two Vines Riesling Gewürztraminer - easy drinking and sweet. We shared the KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) and Chicken Alfredo Pizza with Grapes. The latter was...delectable, and my first time having grapes on pizza. If you like the sweet with the savory, like pineapple on pizza, you will surely like this. For dessert, we split the rum cake, which was scrumptious. Justin, our waiter, was super friendly and helpful with our selections.More

Spectacular lunch on a sunny Saturday in December. The menu offers delightful choices and some spicy choices which my husband and I love. We know that co- owner Chris Moses likes to add his love of spice to some of the menu offerings such as...a fabulous jerk chicken salad. The Korean fried chicken sandwich was delicious. We also had the crab cakes with a spicy aioli. We were celebrating the end of the US election and sampled some delicious Strewn wines with lunch. The service was attentive and very welcoming. OMG we will be back!’More

Excellent! You can close your eyes and play iny mini miny mo with the menu and anything you pick you’ll love. Every single dish on the new winter menu is excellent. Our server was amazing, attentive and funny. We were lucky to enjoy the beautiful...day out on the patio this gorgeous November weekend. Will be back for sure and will recommend this gem in NOTL!More

From the moment we arrived the staff was attentive and COVID restrictions were done very well. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable with the menu both food and drink selection. Olive oils and balsamic vinegar are their specialty and it’s obvious as they were...flavourful and fragrant. We enjoyed stuffed mushrooms, lobster fettuccine and chicken gnocchi which were steaming hot and delicious. You can’t go wrong with any choice on the menu as it all sounds mouthwatering delicious. The service was great and we’ll definitely return again.More

I have been to this restaurant many times. I went yesterday with some friends, on Halloween. We are very disappointed with the food. The sangria is all Juice can’t taste the alcohol, we ordered New Orleans pasta, Yuck! Very bland, we had to put salt...to at lest make it tasty, can’t taste the Cajun seasoning, very disappointed birthday dinner! Not sure if you changed chef, was one of my favourite restaurant, not anymore!More

I apologize for the delay. The answer was yes - only on Sundays. However, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our restaurant closed in March. We have now reopened in May for Curbside Take-out only. Jazz Sundays obviously fell... More
