The Olive Restaurant Review

: The Olive offers Mediterranean cuisine, craft cocktails and live music amidst a rustic modern setting in a hidden courtyard dotted with fountains and flowers at the Downey Promenade. Look for starters like a fire roasted artichoke, lamb sliders and buttermilk calamari, and mains featuring oven roasted whole Cornish hens, grilled shrimp or filet mignon kabobs, seared diver sea scallops, and lamb shank with saffron couscous and parsnip purée. A mixed grill feast ($88) feeds six. Cocktails are crafted with fresh fruits and there’s a select California beer and wine list.
