We ate at El Olivo 2 or 3 times a few years ago and enjoyed the food and friendliness of the staff & owner. After reading a recent review that was less than favorable (small portions) I was hesitant about returning. What a welcome surprise...More

Went with a group of 6 to celebrate. Best sangria ever. Lots of food choices. Everyone loved the paella. The chicken in garlic sauce was awesome. The portions were large. The restaurant was updated and looked very nice. We will return.

On other review sites, this place gets rave reviews. Those reviews mostly overlook how overpriced it is and the skimpy portions. We went because our friend cannot travel. There are few to one Spanish eateries in that neighborhood. The shrimps in green sauce was $23...More

I love the Sangria at el olivo! the chicken francese is wonderful also. This place might not show it with the decor but its food makes up for anything lacking. Whoever eats paiaia loves el olivo.

We liked this place for the appetizers more than the dinner options. Everything was always fresh and delicious! A bit on the pricey side, which is why we did Appetizers...I am sure the entrees are just as yummy.

Best paella we've had in Queens. Certainly there are better options in Manhattan and one good alternative in Long Island, but overall this is a great spot for couples or large groups craving some Spanish food, namely paella.

A place you go for the food, not the atmosphere! BEST sangria. Try the clams casino, plantinos, & shrimp ajilo.
