There are many Mediterranean selections and all homemade. I've had many menu items. My favorite was sample platter (lots of food) and the service was superb!

My favorite is one of the specials -- fish tabouleh (grilled fish over a bed of fresh tabouleh). This is not fine dining, but it is in the freshness and the taste of their specials. The owner/staff are very helpful and friendly. If I lived in the San Marco area, I'd go more often. We go by when we are... More

Arrived about 2PM and were treated like it was prime time. We weren't sure about what we wanted so the manager(owner?) gave us samples. The food was wonderful especially the Falafel's. Go. You won't be sorry.

We found this little gem in a strip mall on Hendrix. I had the Hummas with grilled chicken & my mate had a gyro, also tried 2 different greek beers. I was very hungry and the owner immediately got me pita bread which was delicious and fresh. I want to go back and try more we were just stopping in... More

This restaurant was reviewed in a local newspaper and highly recommended. I think the reviewer tends to give the benefit of the doubt and leans towards praise, which is a good thing in a business sense. Our experience was okay, the food decent, the atmosphere lacking somewhat. I wish this place the best but it was not a memorable experience... More

GREAT falafel, great salad, great lentil soup...the list goes on. I have gotten all of my coworkers hooked on Olive Tree, and my husband loves it too. Also, the staff are SUPER friendly.

Who knows this little hole in the wall had a great food? Inexpensive and very authentic. We had hummus appetizer, gyro, chicken wrap and grilled shrimp dinner. Everything was fantastic. The pita bread was warm and soft. The gyro meat was soft and tasty. And so did the shrimp. Will be back again sometime!

There are a lot of vegetarian options and all are really done well - falafel with the perfect combination of crunchy exterior and fresh, tasty interior, great lentil soup, tabbouleh, hummus, great Mediterranean potato salad and rice, excellent sauces. I love the Turkish coffee to finish with too. Free WiFi is good. My main complaint is that they don't have... More
