Olive You fills its convivial, family-friendly dining room with the lemon and olive-oil aromas of the Mediterranean, courtesy of a yummy menu of gyros, kebabs, souvlakis, falafel, and more. Liquid libations offset the entrees with a wine-dark sea of wine-dark wine, and will delight diners with a dazzling display of strangely colored cartoon elephants. To fully immerse its diners in the spirit of its homeland, Olive You hosts live music, as well as traditional entertainment.
The [Seattle Post-Intelligencer] and [Seattle Times] featured Olive You for its fresh deli selection. Seattle Weekly featured owner Timur Leno for his dedication to improving the neighborhood through Olive You. Yelpers give the restaurant a savory rating of 3.5 stars:
- Few joints west of the wine-dark sea evoke the bountiful extravagance and sunny sidewalk camaraderie of the Mediterranean cafe better than Olive You. – Seattle Times
- My dinner was the Crunchy Creta Paximadi…The dish was nourishing and comforting, and as I munched I imagined a mama in some little Greek village making this treat for her son as an after-school snack. – Sarah DeWeerdt, Seattle Weekly
