Went twice for dinner within the last two months and both occasions we received good service and excellent food. Their menu stays out of the ordinary. All the dishes are unique to this restaurant and we have not found any that have disappointed us. In general, we have been very pleased. The only negative point is the noise. Puerto Ricans tend to be very loud and the lack of noise absorbing materials add to the problem.

We were a group of 10, service was very good and the location was perfect. Good for meetings, groups and private meetings. Plenty of parking and great/affordable selection of drinks and wines. The lobster risotto, L'Olivo soup and the salmon are highly recommended. Definitely will come back soon.

From the moment we opened their impressive door, I fell in love with the place. Ambiance, food, the je ne sais quoi. We arrived around 4p a Friday afternoon and were promptly seated. Our server Oscar Torres arrived promptly to our table. My friend only could describe his craving for wine as a “fruity” flavored wine. Oscar took about 20 seconds to process my dear friend’s helpless (in my opinion) description of his wine of preference. Oscar responded “I will be right back” and one minute later he returned with a bottle of Belle Glos Pinot Noir – amazing! Since Oscar nailed it with the wine, and we didn’t feel like thinking we decided to go with Oscar’s suggestions to indulge in our culinary experience. We ordered the pulpo (squid) for appetizer and it was perfect and deliciously cooked. For entrée we decided to share the porterhouse which, since I’m a self-proclaimed foodie, will describe as food orgasmic. Meat just melted in your mouth with an explosion of flavor. Unfortunately, we had no space left in our bellies for dessert. Cannot wait to visit again during my next trip to Puerto Rico. Did I mention the service is extraordinary? Good eats!

Since L'Olivo opened, we had ordered for take out twice and dined there recently. Has never disappointed us. The appetizers such as the eggplant seared with feta cheese, the wild mushrooms au gratin w/ brie cheese are delicious and so are the pizzettas(order the 1/2 portions which is plentiful, however the crust is thin and does not fill you up, like other processed pizza joints). For main entrée, had as a special, the filet of branzino over majado de viandas and the codfish filet as well. All is very good! The only drawback is that we asked our server to take their time since we wanted to enjoy the food slowly, but I guess the kitchen had other plans to speed it up.
Congrats to owner Jay Cintron and chef plus staff for excellent food and service.
