    Two ducks on the pond

    Come early to Olives. There is a relaxing, classy, lounge in which you and your party can enjoy a nice selection of (pricy) drinks. Once you place your order, a generous selection of breads (and seasoned flat breads) will be put in front of you. Make sure to enjoy the delicious olive spread on top of your bread. Note: This is the only time the name of the restaurant will make any sense throughout your meal. Past reviews have stated that Mr. Todd English can do many things with olives. In fact, none of the main dishes have any trace of olives. On a personal note, this hurt me quite a bit, since I have been waiting for a year to go to this restaurant to enjoy the olives. For an appetizer, we enjoyed a Grilled Summer salad made with lettuce, asparagus, and pancetta. It was good, but a little too salty. For the main course, we would recommend the swordfish order, which was served with a thin, warm, carrot bisque. The scallops and the bacon-wrapped tuna were also superb. On a downnote, the Vegetarian Mezze, a trademark of the restaurant, is best used as a shared appetizer, and should not be used a main course. The restaurant was very helpful with dietary restricitions, and the service overall was also at quite a high level. In conclusion, come and once and come often to the fabulous union square hotspot, as long as you have the wallet to match the prices.

    Wonderful Place!

    We arrived early for our dinner reservation and the hostess was very accomodating. The marinated olives, tapenade and tuscan flat bread they start you off with is so delicious and crunchy. The Soft Shell Crab dish I had was amazing, served with a spicy remoulade sauce and peas, bits of gammon over a tasty rice pilaf. We shared the Warm Chocolate Pudding Cake (seriously a chocolate fan's DREAM it was so delectable) and Apple Cinnamon Toast (which was just yummy). Plus they gave us tiny chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies with the check. Great service and great food!

    Nice Italian eatery

    Started off with a nice aray of breads and then we were served a bountiful wine selection. The wine was good, and the apps were better, crab n slab was fresh crab with a slab of tuna served with a whipped avacodo, delicious. The main course was filling and served creatively. The LI duck was very tasty and the Hallibut served with a strip of bacon, yukon gold potatoes and some cherry clams was savory. Finished it odd with a tower of chocolate their peanut butter snickers dessert was good and plenty big for two.

    Really disappointing

    We chose Olive's to celebrate a birthday yesterday due to the great reviews but whoever was cooking yesterday was just awful! One dish was completely inedible (the steak frites) and another (the crab cakes benedict) was over ham crumpets that were not cooked, and half of the the bread/muffin basket was not cooked (never before have I been served runny muffiins). I am rarely a complainer but this was so bad, I had to post this. I wish Todd English had a guest book on his website so he could know what goes on there.

    Scene

    Dark, noisy and beautiful people. Too bad the food is only mediocre. $29.00 scallop dish was returned-oversalted over the hill product. Clam tart was an ill-conceived clam pizza-Yuck! Great $12.50 martini and friandises with coffee are plusses.
