Olive You Disappointing Experience

Many of you have probably discovered Olive you and it is a good mediterranean restaurant. We went for the first time a few weeks ago and the service was not good, but we loved the food so we thought maybe the waitress was having a bad evening. But when we went with a couple of friends this weekend, we realized that bad service is really the norm there and this really ruined the evening.
First, there is nobody that keeps track of the waiting list and if you ask the waitress, she refers you to the bartender and vice versa! We saw people who arrived after us get sitted before us, and it happened to other people too throughout the evening! We wanted to have a drink at the bar while waiting and the bleached blonde bartender really has a chip on her shoulder! She never smiles and did not ask what we wanted! So no drink for us at the bar as she kept ignoring everyone (not just us)! When we finally sat down and ordered, our meals did not arrive at the same time and they forgot to bring our salads. Needless to say I am going to think twice about introducing friends to this place. Sure, the food is good, but is it really worth the bad service and attitude?
