The fish tacos are as good as the taco stand at the fish market in Mexico, and my personal favorite is the sopaipillas basket for dessert. The airy pockets of fried dough come out warm and drizzled in honey… Me encanta!
As for the food, among my favorite dishes are the salads, with ample portions and unique ingredients that create a wonderful texture and color. The Jumbo Shrimp Louie Salad with hearts of palm, avocado and tomato is delicious.
Favorites such as the Stingray Roll, crab mix topped with freshly chopped cilantro and jalapeno and server with sweet chilli sauce, or the Cabo Blanco Roll, stuffed with salmon, spicy crab mix, avocado, cucumbers and topped with halibut, pico de gallo, and a creamy ponzu sauce, will have you wishing for more room in your tummy.
Olive & Ivy offers some 45 wines by the glass. Bottles from Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, and France along with varietals from California and the Pacific Northwest, of which can been seen on shelves upon shelves in the immense glass wine cellar flanking the entrance to the restaurant.
Pure's Box Sushi is unique fusion of layers of sashimi, crab mix, rice and smelt egg served in a wooden box, and hailed for its originality among local residents.

I had a glass of Chardonnay in the downstairs bar or ‘Den’ as they call it as I waited for my dinner guest. There were a group of people in the corner clearly enjoying themselves but quite loud,
