Our initial interaction with the staff upon entering was difficult, as we were told it would be a good idea to have reservations, despite the restaurant being roughly half full. One of our napkins was so dirty that it was sticky and difficult to open but never received a replacement after asking for one. Also, no water refills were brought... More

We stopped in after a day at Marsh Creek State Park and had a 7 pound dog with us so requested to sit on the patio. We couldn't have been more warmly received! The food was simply a delight - wonderful! Plentiful and beautifully prepared.

People go out of their way to get to the Olive Tree - authentic Greek food is not easily found in Downingtown but you'll find it here. The menu has some American classics and inside it has the appearance of a classic upscale diner but this is not a diner - it's a restaurant offering both classic Greek cuisine and... More

Not good about sums it up. My wife and I ordered dinners here just yesterday. I ordered the Chargrilled Lemony Salmon with Oven Roasted Red Bliss Potatoes and Fresh Daily Vegetables. The only thing on my plate that was palatable were the fresh vegetables. The salmon fillet was swimming in in a lemon cream sauce. It was as if I... More

Interesting meal ! We arrived here after a storm that knocked our power out so we decided to try this place. They only had power to their grill but they were very accommodating and went out of their way to make us comfortable and serve us. I highly recommend the all meat platter for male carnivores, you get a sample... More

This place is great for lunch or dinner. At lunch you can order off the menu or go to the buffet for delicious choices. At night I have had lamb and seafood, both perfectly cooked. In good weather we like to sit out on the patio, it's romantic and quiet.

Prices way too high for what you get. Food was so disappointing. Gyro meat looked & tasted like thin, limp slices of processed, packaged, defrosted greasy meat. Greek salad was fresh & enjoyable. Service was good. Music was obtrusive. We won't waste our money there again.

Awesome Greek BYOB. You'll forgive the semi-diner like setting as soon as you taste their great food. Generous portions of excellent tasting panakopita, moussaka, kaserri saganaki, souvlaki, stuffed grape leaves, etc... Fresh pita and tzatziki with everything. Skip most seafood dishes unless they have a special like whole roasted bronzino. You can make a reservation, but they're not always needed.
