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.

When in St. Louis recently for a reunion we ended up at Olio's because the restaurant across the street could not accommodate our large group. What a blessing that was! The food was absolutely wonderful, presentation as well as taste. Our wait staff did a great job handling all of us, spread out at several tables. Everything that we ordered... More

We dined at Elaia during our short visit to St. Louis over the Labor Day weekend. This was our first time at the restaurant. The restaurant is located in a slightly iffy neighborhood, but it seems this neighborhood is in the process of gentrification. We had to find street parking, which was not hard for an early evening dinner on... More

We went out to celebrate a friend's birthday & this ended up being PERFECT. The patio is SO cozy & cute & the food was top notch! I'm not a fan of Mediterranean typically, but the egg salad was DELICIOUS, the King of Kings hummus was obviously good, & the chicken meatballs were great! Our waiter also suggested some really...

Olio is one of the best restaurants in St. Louis. The bar also makes delicious artisanal cocktails that pair with the food.

This is our go to spot after walking the Missouri Botanical Garden. It's casual, close and many dishes are unique. The star today was a "special" Roasted Fennel Salad. Depth of flavors, texture and thoroughly enjoyable. Would love for this to be on the fixed menu. . Egg Salad is delicate & light. Chicken Meatballs were tasty served on a... More

My wife and I recently dined here, our second time in the last couple of years. We remember having excellent food our first time. The only options are price fixed menu, either 4-10 courses. The waiter recommended 4 courses as sufficient. The food was good, but does not justify the price. The lamb third course was average, the Arctic Char... More

My lovely bride and I dined at Elaia last weekend and were very impressed with the whole experience. The tasting menu was actually worth the 600 mile drive; the pairings were perfect; but to top it off, Lauren, our server, made our night!

This is what the best aspire to. Each part of a four course prix fix menu was outstanding. Delicious. Well served. Appropriately paced. Serving sizes that are satisfying but not so filling as to make one regret going four courses, which I never order. This was a second visit in a few months and I was concerned about being let...
