Delicious Mediterranean food! - Edit

I love this little gem so much! The service is fantastic and the food is sooo delicious! There are plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. My personal favorites are the hummus and baba ganoush. The ingredients are always fresh and everything is cooked very fast and tastes delightful.

I have only dined in once, as I usually take out, but the one time I dined in was very pleasant. The waitress was so friendly and everything was made quickly and turned out to be so tasty. The restaurant itself is so cute and cozy too!

The lentil soup is pretty good, definitely try it. The seasonal barley and mushroom soup is amazing though, I wish they had it year round! For first timers, order the Olive-Tree-O. It has falafels, tabouli, and the best veg. grape leaves!

I love that the menu is clearly marked what is a vegetarian or vegan item, and everything is reasonably priced. Some of the best Mediterranean food in the Columbus area!

Pros: Wonderful staff and service, Delicious appetizers, Great prices

Cons: None

So darn good - Edit

This place is wonderful. They have a great atmosphere, very nice service, everything is clearly marked on their menu showing symbols for both vegetarian and vegan, and the food came quickly.

We got the Tree-O as an appetizer and chose from 3 of the cold plates that were labeled as vegan. They came with pita and were super good. Our waitress also brought us more pitas when we ran out. For the main course I got the falafel wrap and my boyfriend got the hummus wrap. Both of which were delicious. My boyfriend loved the hot sauce, so if you're into that, definitely get that on the side.

They also have drinks! Cheap, but good beer, wine, and a few mixed drinks.

I talked with the manager before we left and had a further conversation with our waitress about Happycow and they were super excited to now have the sticker in their window.

My fiancé and I come here quite frequently. They have plenty of vegan options and are always accurate when taking down the order. My favorite is the falafel wrap, it's to die for. The vegetarian grape leaves are also phenomenal (also vegan). The staff is super friendly and always welcome you with a smile.

Pros: friendly staff, menu items, food accuracy

Cons: cold inside

I love it here! - Edit

I have been to The Olive Tree three times thus far, and their food never fails to disappoint. They have a lot of vegetarian and vegan options!

I love their grape leaves and the falafel wrap. They make fresh carrot juice, and it's delicious as well.

Everyone is very friendly, and I never had to wait long to get my food. I highly recommend dining here!

Pros: Veg/Vegan friendly, Reasonably priced, Friendly staff

Cons: None!

Alright - Edit

I loved this place even before I went vegetarian/vegan. They have a lot of options. HOWEVER due to new management/owners the food is not as good as it was when the place first open. It can be pretty hit or miss honestly.

Pros: Lots of options

Cons: Alright food, hit or miss
