When you are a foodie, there comes a moment in your life when a whole cuisine is redefined in your mind. You know, like when you eat at Olive Garden and Johnny Carino's your whole life, and you think you know what Italian food is, and then you eat at one of those rare 'proper' Italian restaurant. At that moment,... More

It is very nice place with good food. Good place to try Arabic food. Prices are not very high. I found it in lonely planet and maybe isn't the best food from Middle East I have ever eaten but still very good!!

A great meal! The service was excellent. Given good advise by our waiter. Had planned to order the kebab but took his suggestion and loved the lamb shank over rice, the daily special. Started with a appetizer sampler with falafel, hummus, grape leaves, eggplant, tabouli and yogurt dip. Only shortcoming is being handed a cold bag of bread. Miss the... More

I'm of Lebanese heritage & was raised on Arabic food. Olive Tree is as authentic as it gets & served with lots of flavor & in a very generous portion. I love taking friends here to have them try Arabic food as its meant to be made. It's not a fancy place - very mom & pop - there is... More

This is my second review on this place. The first time I gave them five dots, but this visit (my third) and my second were not very impressive. I thought last time it was what I had ordered, but two times in a row is something to worry about. I had their whole fish on rice. Everything was spiced very... More

Excellent salads and delicious falafel. There is a seating outside which is nice when the weather is not too hot. I would ge back.

I do not celebrate Ramadan but I have come to The Olive Tree for the last 5 years from Seattle with my children to eat during Ramadan. The owner of the establishment is the creator and Chef of each of the dishes served here. He has such an amazing life story and if you can get him to stop for... More

I had a very disappointing experience with Olive Tree. Menu prices are very expensive and the value just is not there. They stopped putting any pine nuts or almonds on their dishes. They charge premium prices for their menu items without even providing tab water to drink. They nickel and dime you for everything. At the top of that, they... More

It's been at least 4 yrs since I'd been to Olive Tree. But I'd been seeing their mansaf specials on Fridays on Social Media & this time the photo motivated me & I'm glad it did. When I picked up my order, Alan (one of the owners) engaged in very pleasant conversation. I'd ordered the mansaf special, side salad &... More
