Very similar venue as Olive Garden, but the food is quite a bit different...tasted more like authentic Italian. I went with a large group and our server was very accommodating. You start out with beverages and salad and bread sticks. The dressing and makeup of the salad is way richer than the competition. Portions are huge. Most of our group... More

If you are planning to have a large party for dinner, STAY FAR AWAY from The Olive Tree in Aberdeen. Short story on my visit: they are not accommodating at all, the manager Dwayne needs a serious attitude adjustment, he is downright rude and could use a lesson in customer service, and the managers all together need to communicate things...

First, this restaurant should not be confused with the chain restaurant that has a similar name. The Olive Tree is a locally owned dining venue and in my opinion, it is by far the best Italian restaurant North of little Italy, Baltimore. Hubby and I have been here several times in the 30 years we have lived in Maryland but... More

I was looking forward to this well rated Italian restaurant, but was disappointed. The restaurant was a knock off of Olive Garden but the food was more expensive and lesser quality. I will say service was good, and portions were large.

Very nice meal and holiday celebration with friends. Food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. Nice to see this place is getting busy. They do a very good job and don't rush you at all.

The food is very good but the price is very high. The atmosphere is very good as well. It is usually crowded so it is best to make reservations ahead of time on weekends and holidays.
