I love Greek food, so fresh, light and of course flavorful. I visited the Olive Oil Restaurant for the second time today.
The Athena- I ordered it last time I went which was 4 months ago and the beef and lamb was very tough. So I definitely didn’t want to order it this time around.
I saw they had a ribeye so I’m thinking okay, ribeye is a good cut so it’s safe to order that. Unfortunately, they didn’t have that. They convinced me to go with the Athena so I decided to give it another try.
Sadly, the meat was very tough. I believe that it’s just a bad cut of meat. I couldn’t even chew the lamb and beef so they returned it.
The lady then told me she was informed that they now have the ribeye so I went with that. For my side, I chose pilaf rice which was bland.
Atmosphere and Service
The service was great. The first time, since I was with family, I was able to eat the shared appetizers so I didn’t tell them the meat was tough. But this time around, when I told them they didn’t hesitate to assist me into choosing something else. The staff has always been lovely and attentive.
It’s a great place to talk and let loose.

Will I Go Back ?
Probably not in the near future but I am sure I will visit again. It’s a great restaurant. I don’t expect to like every single menu item at every restaurant I visit. Some of the items were great and some not so great. But I do not doubt their cooking skills. They can elevate the restaurant by getting quality meat cuts. For all the meat lovers: we want nice , tender and juicy. That’s it! That’s all we ask for!
