Bar and Grill
I would definetly reccommend this restaurant to anyone. it has beautiful decor and great prices. it is worth every penny because the food is amazing. the service was okay, not that great. i spilled my drink (coke) and the waitress came and didn't even refill it. i was stuck with that drink the rest of the evening. my father ordered a wine, white wine by an accident and the waitress made it such a problem to change it to red wine. We got bruschetta instead of garlic bread and since it was such a problem with the wine, we didn't even bother changing to garlic bread. not a long wait for a table and we sat in the front with the open windows which was beautiful. in the beginning of the dinner, the waitress came and ask us what drinks we wanted. we asked for a minute and then she left. in that very second, a different waitor came and asked us for our drinks. it was all in a split second and we still weren't ready. the service wasn't all that great but the food was amazing!
I recently visited spicy olive for dinner with my husband due to all the positive reviews and the reccommendations from the hotels.
We've been travelling to many cities and countries, but my family and I have encountered the worst service ever in a restaurant in our own backyard (Niagara Falls).
Penne alla vodka was really good, a little too al dente, and really affordable. The food was good but even better was the dessert martinis (yum!) and the lovely intimate atmosphere. Compared to all the restaurants around this is really really relaxing, good wine selection, and alot less hectic than the rest of the city! Thank you for enhancing our trip!
really great food at an affordable price.
This place is incredible, The decor is just so warm and excellent colors and styles are used. The staff is very professional in dress and in manners. Food is fantastic, and the entertainment on thursday and fridays is just fantastic. We live approx. 200km to 250km away from Niagra falls and although there are many great sights to be seen, our biggest reason for ever going is to go to the Spicy Olive, I am planning to propose to my girlfriend there, we have gone there several times and both love it.
We were only going to stay for a few drinks but the band they had entertaining that night was amazing! They were called "Hemitone". We ended up staying the whole evening. Cudo's to the Olive for the great food and great entertainment. We will definately be back..hopefully Hemitone will be playing again soon.
Great food, great service. Had to wait a bit for a table though, then again it was Canada day. I would recomment this place. Looking forward to visiting it again in the future.
My husband and I stopped in a for a couple of drinks (around 5:00 pm) -
we were killing some time before heading to an event in NF that we had
Great food...as well as very reasonable prices in NF. I also really liked the atmosphere, and I also really likes how the windows were open in the front.
Calamari was the best I've had since Vancouver!
DELICIOUS. FRESH. INSPIRED. AFFORDABLE. Great service. Beautiful environment. We are thinking of making this our once-weekly lunch spot. A gem in Niagara Falls where locals and tourists are usually ripped off. My favorite table is on the railing near the sidewalk. Great ambiance.
-Great decor! My family (esp. the husband) loved the look and layout of
My wife and I visited the Spicy Olive in July 1012. We were told by a man standing outside the store front (who worked there) that it was delicious, fully guaranteed, and the prices were good. We looked around at other menus at other restaraunts and found he didn't lie about the prices. They were better. We sat down and ordered bruschetta, drinks, and fettuccine and their spicy sausage penne. DELICIOUS as promised. My wife and I highly recommend this place, and it is a short walk off of Victoria near Clifton Hill! Great job!
food was authentic ,extremely good ,owner was polite,sevice was extremely sub par.i would go back anyway because the food outweighed the poor service
food was delicious! best meal we had all weekend. we had bruschetta, bianca pizza, and penne vodka. Would definitely recommend this place. Thank you to Mario, at the door who convinced us to try it.
My boyfriend and I have gone there 2 years - both times the food was excellent i ordered the Penne Alla Vodka- and both times we both enjoyed our time there. The servers could be much more pleasent - but its who i was with and how the food tasted in the end that really mattered. Overall i'd rate this restaurant 8/10- service could improve...Great price too!!
My family and I just love this restaurant. My (grown) Children live in Canada and I across the boarder in the States...we meet at this restaurant frequently, yes we have tried other restaurants but always go back...the food, service and atmosphere are what make us keep going back...
We were at the Spicy Olive for dinner. The service was great and friendly. Prices for drink were very reasonable ($6.00CAD for a glass of Yellow Tail red wine). Food were very good.
The ambiance was nice. There was a candle on our table. The service was fine. Crowd seemed younger and so did the wait staff, early twentys probably. Food was very good. Gnocci was cooked perfect and the sauce was great. The Seafood Linguini has a nice wine sauce. The cheesecake was FROZEN when it was served to us, but it was such a good meal that I was not too bothered by it. It still tasted delish!
My friends and I had a great time and would love another evening of great food and dancing.
The place is awsome great service and friendly people from servers to bartenders and even the barback Darren was unreal..lol but yah its the classiest place ive been to in awhile!
Excellent food - my wife and I have eaten here numerous times and every visit we enjoy.
As a chef, I am always looking for quality food which is not often found in most places.
