I was so disappointed in this restaurant. I wanted to love it, but had 2 bad experiences here, both with food and service and the management didn't seem to care. I hope the chef does well in the future at somewhere else. I just don't...More

Kindness in correction is such a lovely thing, and so very longed for. We wish all reviewers would consider using their voice and sharp eye to help independents improve, a great many of ours did, and we so appreciated them for it. We apologize -again-...More

Excellent food. Intimate setting. I was surprised at the upscale dinning experience and was pleased at the service and quality of food. I am a vegetarian and found the choices to be delicious.

Ate here once and it was fabulous. Had some kind of pork dish. Suggest buying a bottle of wine across the street, have a sip, then bring the rest to dinner at Olive. Hoping the owners open a new place.

Olive was an experiment that worked really well. The owner took was as Wympee Fast Food joint and converted it into a fine fining but very casual experience. As you can imagine, seating was limited and the kitchen space constrained but they would create a...More

Unfortunately, this little Dayton, indie restaurant has closed. Olive will be missed. Hopefully, more indie's will open as Dayton is overrun with chains with more opening daily.

This is a little gem and I mean little. The seating is limited but worth the wait. If you like Vegan food you will find good fresh options here. If you don't see an option just ask. I love this place!!

Unfortunately, this great little Bistro closed and is not scheduled to reopen in the Dayton area. There are other restaurants near by. Thai 9 is very good.

we're located in the old Wympee diner at the corner of third and wayne in downtown Dayton, Ohio! the outside looks the same and even has the original signage as built in 1938!!! the inside is reminiscent of a chicago bistro and we have a patio! we take reservations and walk-ins, but there are only 28 seats inside, so calling ahead is a great idea! 937.222.DIVE (3483). we don't have diet sodas, but you can bring your own! we have over 70 local farmers on speed dial and our own garden and added a farm and bee hive this year!! come visit our little dive!! our motto: local over import, labor over convenience and service over everything else. we chase chickens, when we say free range.... we mean it. your locally sourced, mediterranean, american restaurant in the old wympee diner, downtown, dayton! we're gluten free, vegan, paleo & allergy friendly, but we've also got great grass fed beef and burgers!!!
