Serving only breakfast and lunch - make sure you stop by for one or both! The food is fresh, unique, flavorful, and feels like it was made JUST FOR YOU. Even though the lunch time line was out the door, our food was prepared in plenty of time to eat and get back to work. I highly recommend the Salmon... More

This is a order at the counter, call your name to get your food, and sit wherever you like type of establishment. The steak and cheese sandwich was fine, although I would probably try something else next time. I did like their fries and the basil aioli. Mmm.

Ate here for lunch. Had the daily special-crabcake banh mi sandwich. Ordering process was efficient. Food was enjoyable. The restaurant was too loud, though. If you can deal with that, this is a perfect lunch spot

Looking for a restaurant near my hotel I found Olio quite by accident. Once inside there is a place for the menu boards where one can read it and choose what to eat. You then go to the counter to order and pay for your choice, pick out a table to sit at and wait for your name to be... More

Easy walk from the Hyatt. It's a quirky place but the long lines move quickly. It's counter service. The food was amazing! I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Stopped in for business lunch with a colleague. The sherry crab soup was outstanding. The beet salad was good but nothing you cannot get somewhere else. The aioli that comes with the fries is good enough to eat on its own with a spoon. Would come back if in the area.

This place is busy for lunch and rightfully so. Food was very good, hot, fresh and creative. Unless you are a repeat patron, it can be confusing to get the lay of the land. Specials are on the chalk board on the ordering line. Grab a menu from the pillar for the full effect. Ordering is easy, when your food... More

First off, I didn't realize this was a counter service restaurant until I walked in. It didn't bother me one bit though. I ordered the fish tacos. The fish was very tender and it over cooked. Came with mandarin orange segments that added a nice sweetness to the tacos. Only downside was that the tacos dropped a lot of liquid.... More
