Absolutely fantastic food and service. We got the scallops, halibut, mussels and cheesecake. Would recommend them all.

Bleu Olive was a fun place for the 5 of us to enjoy talking about our day while having a family dinner. Everything was delicious and the only ding was we had to ask for bread after our dinner was served and what they brought was one small slice for each of us (5 small slices). They never asked if we wanted anymore and TBH it’s something an alert server should monitor. I could have asked for more but that is like asking for more water.. .you should not have to in a place of this caliber.

Our entire experience was great. We were met by a friendly staff and some of the best Mediterranean food we’ve ever had- stuffed grape leaves served on tzatziki, farro island salmon served with polenta cakes and roasted carrots, red snapper special served over orzo with capers and spinach. The Greek red wine blend was a new experience and taste profile. We closed out our experience with a piece of pistachio crusted goat Milk cheesecake … we departed to our Airstream to discover a serious tire issue and the staff was kind enough to allow us to overnight in their parking lot. Thank you all!

When it comes to AMAZING food, this family owned and operated restaurant always over delivers. The quality is fresh and the flavors are delicious. If you want to enjoy every single bite of your meal, book a reservation now!

Came here for my moms birthday, we had a lovely dinner. The empress aviation cocktail was great, and the paella was pretty good! My mom enjoyed her salmon. It’s a little cramped on the inside but more of a cozy feeling

Greek restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. The service is good. My family had different experiences with the food. The salmon, the crispy Brussels sprouts, and the hummus were delicious. However the taste of the flat iron was not good. It is necessary to make a reservation.

This was the first meal I have paid for since Covid that I actually felt was worth the price. Lunch was amazing, including dessert of goat cheese & honey cheesecake! Staff was genuine and pleasant, atmosphere was low key and welcoming! I will be coming back, worth the hour drive for me ☺️

Everything would have been perfect if we weren't told we would be charged an extra $2 because we asked for extra vegetables with the hummus appetizer. Two out of the 4 of us are Gluten free. They offer no gluten free bread, rolls or crackers. The extra vegetable that was served with the hummus was maybe a half of a cucumber ( no, mixed vegies just a couple of slices of a cucumber). Eric was our server and he did good job.

Unfortunately, the air conditioning was on the fritz. I literally was dripping with sweat to the point my legs were wet. My entrée was good. I will have to go back when the AC is working so I can really enjoy the food without the discomfort of being extremely warm and fanning myself with a menu.

Paella is kinda salty but full of flavor. The mushroom linguine is awesome and creamy.

This place is fantastic. So good I'm currently watching my husband shamelessly gnaw on the pork chop bone in the kitchen because he couldn't leave it behind. I'm just sad he got to it before I did. We had a table of 7 and everyone agreed it was the best meal they have had in a long time. Service was excellent. Our group ordered the pork chop, stuffed chicken, shrimp linguine, and the steak tenderloin. We also ordered the calamari, the grilled octopus, and the spreads for appetizers. The dessert is an absolute must. Our table favorite was the creme brulee but we also loved the chocolate torte and baklava.
