The Black Olive Restaurant offers fine Greek and Italian inspired food in a comfortable and stylish 58-seat dining area. Earthy, seashell colors complement the hardwood floors and salt and pepper carpeting. Tucked in among the tables sits a small bar area that is perfect for a cocktail before and after dinner.
Great Greek and Italian food
The dining room is one thing, but the real reason people come to the Black Olive is the fabulous food. The kitchen prepares tasty Mediterranean dishes using local suppliers and only the freshest locally grown produce available. The one thing they do import are the olives, which come from the restaurant's very own olive tree fields on the island of Crete and are used to make their own exclusive blend of olive oil. The oil is used in the fresh bread the restaurant bakes and just about everything else you can imagine. It’s also available to bring home from a few select area retailers. There is a daily three course special and the a la carte menu is filled with traditional Mediterranean food. While there are a number of great pastas, the Black Olive is probably best known for it's rack of lamb. Diners often rave about the full rack of lamb prepared with the Black Olive's own rosemary and onion demi-glace.
Taste and Class
The Black Olive has earned a reputation for consistent quality as evidenced by its four star rating from the American Automobile Association. For 25 years the Black Olive Restaurant has been providing great Mediterranean food of unparalleled taste and class in an elegant fine dining setting free of pretension. If you're in the area it's definitely worth making plans to drop in.
