Received my food after 1.5 hours of waiting. No refills. And, the waitress told us that we should probably come a different day of the week to get better service. We ate here before with no issues, but this time was a surprise to hear someone say such a thing. I won't be returning my business.

This is the second occurrence, hence, the reason I am leaving this review now, which eliminates the possibility this was due to chance. First and foremost, my friends and I came out here to have a good time. After receiving our drinks, we were asked to move because we were accused of being too noisy (not only is this very unprofessional for a place like this, but we were speaking well below the decibel level of normal conversation). Clearly, this was an act of discrimination by the owner. Secondly, at the end of our dinner--keep in mind that gratuity was included--I paid the waitress in cash and she did not return my change that was due. I am extremely dissatisfied in the customer service for a place that portrays an upscale vibe. Ultimately, Bleu Olive is very unprofessional and clearly stealing money from customers as they please. The owner was VERY aware of the situation and refused to return my change! Do not waste your money on this place!

My friend suggested this place for a meet up but it was so much better than that. The varied menu had so many tempting choices! We enjoyed lamb “meatballs” (actually flat patties but so good who cares?), the beautiful and creatively prepared beet salad, a large serving of moussaka and some red wine. Other than my wine was warm, the meal was a complete success. The service was pleasant, unobtrusive, and on top of everything. Oh, and the decor made it easy to forget you are in a strip mall!

Great place. Owner attends the reception desk. Been there for 26 years. Great ambience and great food. My daughter loved mussels, entree and we both loved there bread. There espresso is great. The server was very attentive. I recommend the place. Tastefully decorates.

Very good food. The mushroom linguine was fabulous and the flatiron steak cooked to perfection. We needed to add salt but that's not a bad thing, IMO, because many places add too much. Will definitely visit again.

I added salmon to my beet salad, and the salmon was blackened, which I enjoyed. There was not a lot of arugula in the salad but lots of beets dressed in a sauce with a small amount of something resembling pistachio crumbles. The salad included fennel, which I love. The salad was topped with a large flat disk of tasty goat cheese.

Loved the assorted spread/dips. I was quite full from the appetizer and lamb burger (so delicious but filling) that I didn’t get to the salad. I think next time I’ll get a lighter meal. My husband enjoyed his meal as well.

Great cocktails and fantastic food. The mushroom risotto was exquisite, but the whole meal was perfect. We will definitely be back!
