Olive and June Ratings and Reviews
Dined on a Saturday night. The hosts sent us to the bar for a drink before seating us at the table which is oddly located on the second level (stairs on the outside). Atmosphere was very romantic and relaxing. Bar was underwhelming. We ordered the Lamb ravioli and the taste was amazing but the portion size was much smaller than let on. There were two of us and we were splitting plates. The special pork ribs were literally falling off the bone and probably the highlight of our experience. Also ordered the Calimari fritti and nothing to write home about. Over all good experience. Just don't go there hungry
The food was delicious, and the drink list features a lot of interesting herbal and bitter liqueurs, which are used in their specialty cocktails as well. The waitress made some excellent recommendations, and my food was perfect from starter to gelato. Highly recommend!
Romantic, yet casual, and very Austin. The food is easily the highlight, with its emphasis on Italian dishes remade with local ingredients, although the restaurant also has an impressive wine list. Cozy and intimate, friendly and helpful waiters, and some of the best food in Austin make for a great fancy date night.
This doesn't happen to me very often so I am unsure if it was normal. When the waiter asked us "how's the food" we were honest which is hard for me because awkward situations make me want to run and hid. We said that one of our dishes was Bad and then the waitress said absolutely nothing finished filling our water glass and walked away. It is safe to say that she did not care at all how our meal was and the only thing that confuses me is why she asked in the first place. I'll eat there again someday but the restaurant will probably have a different name. Oh yeah the best service we got was from the valet, they should offer him a job waiting tables.
Selected this dining experience for rare family get together to eat outside on patio.
On arrival told that another larger group had preference and we had to eat inside.
Sorry, but we were quite disappointed by the over-fussy rather pretentious version of Italian cooking. The risotto in particular was so stuffed with cheese as to be unpalatable.
The service was great and the bartender was very attentive, but most at the table were underwhelmed with their food orders and dessert was a train wreck. How can you mess up dessert? The two appetizers, pork meatballs and calamari were very good. Went nicely with the homemade bread served as we sat down. We all agreed it may have been better to order all the small plates and share. Overall disappointing because of the many good reviews. If not for our very likable waiter the evening would have been ...not good.
We do not take advantage of this place enough. We had great friends with us before going to Phantom. We were well accommodated. We enjoyed the waiter who was able to speak with experience about Austrian wines with our guests. His food recommendations were spot on. I am also happy to see this place "jumping" on a Thursday night.
I had done lots of research on Easter brunch options while visiting Austin. I selected this location because it had an Easter brunch plus menu service noted. When seated at the restaurant I had asked where the other menu was in addition to brunch the server quickly said we're only doing the brunch menu. I had asked that because we were vegetarians if they could do some accommodation with making a vegetarian option from the items and the server went to check in the kitchen. She came back and said they could not do any accommodation and that also the menu that was referenced it was only going to be served for dinner. We said that that point we were going to leave and when we said that the server went to take our water glasses immediately. No apology no anything was said so we left. It left us in a bind on trying to find a place for brunch on a Easter Sunday but to the rescue was Chez Zee. We called and the told us they would put us on the list then to help accommodate us.
We've been to this restaurant several times and it's one of our favorites in town. I'm hoping we had a one time unlucky experience with service. Our server forgot about us for 30 minutes after we ordered an appetizer and one drink. We had to ask the hostess for his attention to order dinner. We had good service after the hostess helped out, but our overall experience was not good.
I had read fairly good reviews for your restaurant and chose it for a date night with my husband. The location and wait staff were terrific. I loved the comfortable of the booth where my husband and I were seated and looking out at the patio. Our server knew the menu well and explained everything to our satisfaction. Feeling pleased with our selections, we couldn't wait to enjoy a great meal. The server brought out a tray with sourdough bread which was cold and quite hard. I enjoy a warm slice of sourdough so that was the first disappointment. The second strike was the cold salad that just seemed unremarkable and a bit limp. My main course was your beet ravioli dish. It was somewhat enjoyable, but needed more walnuts for the serving size. Without the difference in texture and taste, it became a bit unappealing. My husband's pasta dish was a bit more bland, so we shared mine. I hope this assists you as you continue to improve upon the selections given the setting is quiet and relaxing if seated before the weekend dinner rush.
Overpriced and overrated. The shared plates were good, but the salad was so salty it was inedible and the risotto was disappointing. We were seated inside in the downstairs dining room, which took me back to our friends' basements circa 1978. The linoleum was definitely circa 1970's. Perhaps outdoor dining is more enjoyable. We won't be returning to find out.
My husband and I rarely get a night out to ourselves but we're on a date and really enjoyed our time at Olive and June. The drinks were good and strong. Our server, Kim, was outstanding. She delivered excellent service while smiling the whole time. She was also very knowledgeable about the menu.
I love this place on a nice evening. It has a great atmosphere and generally good service. I'm told the specialty drinks are good - but as a wine drinker I tend to stick with that. The wine selection is adequate. I have not been disappointed with the small plates and recently branched out to try the entrees. While the food is not foodie fantastic, it is good and reliable. The noise level outside is pleasant, and I am hyper-sensitive to loud noise. This is one of our go to places to meet friends for a drink and small bite.
It's a little to pricey for us, but the food presentation is definitely excellent. My husband had the lamb, which was unique and tasted great and was tender. I had the special pasta. It's ok. I think the sharables/appetizers would be better. So go during happy hour.
The food was quite good! All courses! The cocktails we had before dinner were unique and fun. The only thing I noticed, (although it wasn't a big deal) was how long our meal took from start to finish was close to 3 hours. The bartender hand picked a selection of digestifs that were the perfect finish to our meal!
