Olive Branch is a very intimate restaurant that offers a wide variety of tapas (shared small plates) and some larger plates as well. Food and service was very good - but be prepared to be in a smaller sized dining room, close to others, and at a small table - but that's what makes it great! We had many plates,... More

Just returned from the shower for my future daughter in law. Great place with a wonderful staff who bent over backwards to accommodate 20 women and children. Food was great with brunch foods and lunch foods. A great event!

We loved dining here. Unique blend of cuisines inspiring each dish. The owner even greeted our table (Mary, I think) and made sure all was well with our experience. They are BYOB so think ahead. There is a place to get your drinks just a few doors down, so not an issue. Wasn't super busy when we went in, but... More

6 of us went to the Olive Branch for brunch after a train ride/Christmas tree selection. The food was very good ( everyone enjoyed their meals) and the service was excellent - on top of things without hovering. I won't hesitate to go back to sample their lunch and dinner fare in the future.

The Olive Branch is a BYOB small restaurant in "downtown" West Chester. Their menu has a medium selection of tapas, but it also includes large plate options. We were there for the tapas and decided on the seven plate chef's tasting option for a table of 4, which turned out to be a great choice. On a Friday night at... More

In West Chester for one night, where to go? Wanted something different and we picked Olive Branch after one of the seated diners gave us the thumbs up. Service was very good not pushy, there are lots of choices so take your time. Since it is BYOB you can spend your money on food instead of overpriced wine. We made... More

Olive Branch is great for couples and friends who want a chance to catch up and talk in a cozy and pleasant restaurant. I love coming here to catch up with friend over good food. Their wait staff is always welcoming and solid with service. The space is small, unique, and quirky but clean and cute. I have never had... More

Just another great meal at The Branch. I love Tapas and their selection of food. It is also wonderful to be able to BYOB. My wife and I go there with friends about every two months. It is also quite reasonable for dinner - about $60.00 including tip for the both of us. I can't wait to go back.

We had an amazing night at Olive Branch. Our waiter Jim suggested the Chef's choice for our party of eight. Do it! All of the ingredients were fresh and delicious. We shared our groups preferences since two are allergic to shellfish and one to beef. The evening began with a pear salad which was an amazing blend of flavors. Nice... More

I am not sure what the fuss is with this place. My husband and I had dinner here after a friend told me it was good place. We sat at our table for 20 minutes without service before having to flag someone down for it. They did comp us each a glass of wine for this. We had four courses... More
