We went there today with two friends, as it was recommended to us by some other friends. It was a very nice experience. Michael (the owner) was very friendly and informative about the wine and food selections, also the service was very good today. The food was excellent and Michael's recommendations where on the spot. It took a little while... More

Very fine dining experience. Michael and Georgia are great hosts and superb chefs. People who have written that they couldn't wait long enough to be served is unfortunate. My husband and I enjoy a find such as this and fully understand the difficulties in finding staff when a place is off the beaten path. Also - at first glance you... More

Spouse and I came with another couple. We had made reservations earlier in the week. We were greater and seated immediately. We started off with dips and man you get a huge serving. Each of us enjoyed our main courses. Spouse and I want to come back to try more. Super friendly owner.

Such a great experience. I really enjoyed the food and decoration. Don't forget about the owner, Michael, he is wonderful host. Very nice family. That is right, it is a family business and you can meet all the family and kids there. Amazing food and thanks for the lady in the kitchen. It definitely worth the trip and I will... More

Made a reservation, showed up, got ignored for over 15 minutes. That should have been our first clue. Got sat and ignored for another 20 minutes, even though the owner was running around and staff stood around. The reason is he didn't want them doing a damn thing. What a waste of our time. We got up and left. Will... More

The wine that they import from Crete is so unique and flavourful, a one of a kind type of wine. There was 3 of us out for supper and we all had something different, but we all tried each other's dish. The sesame chicken salad was so tasty, my Auntie says , I hope this flavor last all night, they... More

The Olive Tree Restaurant and Blacktop Diner is an experience for sure. About one hour from Saskatoon it is really a gas station diner in the middle of nowhere, but with a high-end Mediterranean restaurant menu. The decor is an eclectic mix of 60's diner, classic greek, and shabby chic -- be sure to check out the washrooms. The portion... More

We came here because we were recommended it by numerous family and friends. It was phenomenal service and food. Large portions and well worth the price. This is not a fast food restaurant so sit back and enjoy the wine list as you would any other restaurant in the city and wait for your taste buds to be dazzled. I... More

First time at The Olive Tree. We enjoyed our Fathers Day dinner very much. The menu is Mediterranean. Prices for entrees from $20.00 - $38.00. No more expensive than some restaurants in the city. Food was very good, service was great. Definitely need to book a reservation. Restaurant was busy. My only complaint was $14.00 for a glass of wine,... More

We had a party of 12. Took a limo out there. It was off the hook. Incredible soup with freshly made homemade garlic parsley crackers, we all ordered different meals, pastas, steaks, etc. Everything was bang on. Service was great that night and came with a complimentary aperitif. We did call ahead and booked. The chef was great. Looks like... More
