I visit The Olive and Grape on a weekly basis and I never get tired of it. The quality of the food is superb, and although not cheap, is worth every penny. So many of the dishes have a unique twist, whether from Paola's home...More

The restaurant would benefit by specializing in its menu. The offerings although numerous are too many to do any one item justice. Focus on a few items and the results will be better food choices.

Stopped in before a play and had the Mediterranean-Style Salmon (Grilled wild sockeye salmon topped with lemon-caper sauce) and the Chicken Kebab. Both were excellent. Had the fig-vanilla gelato for desert (yum!). Food came out quickly. Service was a little stretched (maybe they were down...More

Turkish, Italian and Greek... with a Twist
The owner, Paola Corsini, is from an Italian levantine family, third generation born-and-raised in Izmir, Turkey.

Paola’s distinct culture is represented in the menu at The Olive and Grape. Each and every meal served is infused with the traditions of Turkish and Italian cuisine. Their dishes reflect a lively repertoire of scratch-made meals designed to please any palate. Crafted with imported Turkish olive oils and fresh ingredients sourced from the Pacific Northwest, their menu caters to a wide range of tastes and dietary preferences, including those seeking vegetarian, vegan, kid-friendly, gluten-free and heart-healthy options. Sweet-tooths of all ages will delight in treats like baklava, Tiramisu, Crème Brule, and D'Ambrosio Gelato.She describes the food as her culture. Most of the recipes have been passed down within her family. Being Italian-Turk and raised with Greek influence, her kitchen focuses on these three cultures.
