4 Olives Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

My wife & I took our CrossFit Benedictus coaches out for a Thank You Dinner on a Saturday evening. We were greeted and seated promptly and courteously. Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive---a balance many waitstaff personnel just don't have. Dinner and drinks and desserts were all superb quality. Excellent evening. (P. S. I like their new digs much better than when they were on the west side of town.)

This was our second "special occasion " dinner at 4Olives- this one New Years Eve. The cocktails are marvelous, and worth a visit in themselves. The service was excellent. The wine list is exceptionally strong. However the small samplings on the two pours on the Prix Fixe did not merit the $30 up-charge. I should have just ordered two nice glasses of wine.
Be prepared for very salty food preparation. If you eat a healthy diet that is naturally low in salt, you may find the salt levels at 4Olives too high. I had wondered if they brined my filet mignon with the olives? This may appeal to some, but not to my taste.
Lovely post-dinner coffee service was a high point.

Wonderful as always. The Duroc pork chop and the ahi tuna are two of our favorites on the menu. The specials are very creative and are always delicious. Best food, drinks and wine in the region. Don't miss it when you are in Manhattan.

I took my girlfriend out to dinner at Four Olives and we were blown away. The wine flights are great and good to share. We got one of both white and red. The appetizers are light and cleanse your palate before the main courses. The menu is quite vast and the wine selection is incredible. If you are looking for a good intimate spot for a special occasion, date night or just want something other than Harry's four olives is the spot to go in Manhattan!

I like the relaxed feel of this place – I definitely would return to try more of their dishes. They have an beer selection that is unique. Vast wine menu. The Filet Mignon was done right and the Crème Brulee is an must try. Service was excellent.

We had a delightful meal and the service was great as always. We started with a cheese course that was terrific. We continued with steak tips and risotto, duck and the veal shank with Israeli couscous was just outstanding. We finished up with bread pudding, off the hook. The cocktails and wines were excellent. We even got a surprise visit from the K-State band , which was very cool. A delightful evening! Best restaurant in Manhattan.

KSU band and cheerleaders got us started with their fight song, blended in well with a fabulous cheese plate and wine. Everyones food was well prepared and hearty, the meats were very tatstee and prepared just right. Very large selection of wine and spirits, only short on porters and stouts.....but the coffee made up for everything along with house made toffee!

The food and service was very good. We had a reservation for two and were seated at a very small little table with the sun shining in my companions face. It was very uncomfortable for him. If I had not had a reservation, I would have no complaint, but I did and when I complained about the table when we arrived, was informed that all the other tables had reservations. When we left two hours later there were still two larger tables empty! Probably will not return soon.

It is wonderful to have a restaurant in MHK that rivals what you would find in a much larger city, especially if you enjoy a wonderful original or classic cocktail and their huge wine selection to accompany dinner.

Everything great except the pork shank I had was not cooked properly and not even warm. Osso Buco should be cooked to where the meat almost falls off the bone. I could not even cut it off with a meat knife. And the Rissoto was cool also. The other three guest had very good food. I have never had a unsatisfactory meal there until now.

My husband surprised me for our 25th anniversary and brought our children home for the weekend. We were able to book a table and I had requested a quiet area for us to dine. This was all done the day of our reservation. They did a great job with my request!

Food is usually very good here. I recommend the Filet Mignon - always cooked to order and the sauce they put on is amazing. Went with my wife on our 26th anniversary (she had never been and wanted to try it) and she got chicken breasts with some type of breading - they were over cooked and very dry. Substituted rice pilaf instead of the "polenta cakes" and was charged extra (really? $20 for 2 thin chicken breast isn't enough?) Very small dining area and can be very noisy depending on how much others at other tables have had to drink. There was a crying baby there when we went (really? who brings a baby to a $30-$40 a plate restaurant?) so we got seated on the patio - window was closed due to summer heat. Only ones out there, so it was quiet.

The service was much better tonight. I am happy to say I will be back again soon, my water glass was always full and the food came out in a decent time. Slowly, but at least it was timed well, didn't seem like I was waiting for my food.

We started with a glass of wine and a couple cheeses. Kansas Cheddar and the Gouda. My wife had the seared scallops with bacon broth. I had the balsamic grilled duck. Both were fantastic.
The restaurant was quite and relaxed. Perfect for a date night.

Truly a dining experience. Quality of food source and preparation is top notch. Service is excellent. Prices are very high but that's what makes it my small town special occasion go-to place. I have never been disappointed with a meal at 4 Olives.

Our hostess/waitress was incredible. She even brought my girlfriend a cupcake for her birthday. The food was delicious though the portions were not generous. The mixed drinks were small and expensive but good. The only way the night would have been better was if the portions/drink sizes were somewhat more substantial.

Excellent food, great presentation and obvious attention to detail.

Dinners are in line with what one would expect with fine dining and an overall excellence experience.

As always 4 Olives was amazing. It's my wife's favorite date night spot and I was able to pull off a surprise date night for her to celebrate a very special occasion. The staff is friendly and the food is AMAZING!!!! The wine list is huge and the menu has a wine fit for each dish. They offer complete meal specials depending on the day or you can order off the menu. Perfect for a romantic evening or grown up friends gathering.
