Olive & Ivy for Corporate Group Dinner (12-15ppl)?

For a client dinner with 12-15 people, is Olive & Ivy a good option midweek?

If not, any suggestions in the Scottsdale/Tempe area.

  1. i think it would be OK< though maybe alittle loud, also consider Herb Box right across the canal, or 5th & Wine, or Eddies House just a couple blocks away

        Haven't been there in a while but they have a great private room for a group that size, so noise shouldn't be an issue.

      2. 5th & Wine can be a little casual. Olive & Ivy is a little loud, kmarg is right about that. They do have a private room which might be an option for you to look into.

        Assuming Olive & Ivy is the budget you're looking for and noise isn't a huge issue I'd look into Citizen Public House and Cowboy Ciao for somewhere a little more interesting than Olive & Ivy. Roaring Fork is a quieter option still in Old Town and although doesn't get much love on the board anymore due to becoming more corporate over the past few years I still find it very good and a great setting for a business dinner.

        1. If you want mundane corporate food Olive & Ivy is OK. You might consider T. Cook's @ Royal Palms. If you don't need a private dining room check out Rancho Pinot or Marcellino Ristorante.
