As good as the pictures and reviews are, trip advisor just does not do this place justice. It's AMAZING!!! From the moment we walked in(half an hour early, seated at bar, table ready 10 mins later) it was so welcoming! Cocktails are strong and very nice! (Cosmopolitan, passion fruit fizz and Long Island iced tea were sampled) Food- well, starter... More

Very friendly efficient staff, lovely tasty food! Thank goodness we booked the day before, as the restaurant kept filling up, but the staff seemed totally unfazed! Tried one of their cocktails think it was called Gin Rose, very nice! First time in Olive and Liverpool, loved both, will be back!

We didn't book but just passed by and thought it looked nice. Glad we did go in! Service was friendly, the restaurant has a comfortable and relaxed ambience and the food was lovely.

In liverpool for short break. Reception told me about this restaurant. Lucky to get in on Valentines day, but well worth the try. fabulous food, and nothing too much trouble for the attentive staff. Also got a discount by showing my Hotel card. excellent night all round. will definitely eat there next time we come to Liverpool

Visited here when it was 50% off in January. Been here a few times and the food is lovely however on this visit the food wasn't the best I got the chilli and prawn tagliatelle and it was very dry with no sign of chilli on it. For our starters we also got hummus and was given two small pieces... More

We were fitted in on a busy Friday night. Very helpful staff, told us about the special s on the menu, including the price. The waiter even advised us of places to visit while here for the weekend. We both commented on the friendliness of the people of Liverpool

This restaurant is a perfect mid-range restaurant. The portion sizes are good and the food tastes delicious. The garlic bread is insanely good, you won't want to share. Staff were friendly and accommodating.

Can't praise this place enough, I visited on a Tuesday night at about 7pm and the restaurant was full ! The staff reserved me a table at the bar but made sure that I was treated the same as a restaurant customer. I've been to Olive in Manchester before it became Gusto but this chain is absolutely brilliant. Despite the... More

Despite requesting a table by the windows for a birthday celebration we were put at a table at the corner or the serving area -it was extremely busy with both staff and customers walking by and my chair was bumped many times.Food was average and service appeared frantic.Our waitress Elizabeth was a delight -only saving grace!Very disappointed.
