O-live Tree Mediterranean Cuisine

Recently, we were invited to O-live Tree Mediterranean Cuisine for dinner.  Located within the business towers of Irvine and conveniently off the 405 FWY and MacArthur Blvd, our family ventured out for an amazing evening of food and fun.  DISCLAIMER: Sponsored post, we were provided a meal for four in exchange for this review.  All opinions are all our own and we were not compensated.

The O-live Tree Mediterranean Cuisine is an great place to grab a great fresh lunch to fuel you through a busy day or entertain a client for that important business meeting.  However, the restaurant is now open for dinner Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 5 PM to 9:30 PM.
During our visit, we wanted to experience as many of the offerings as possible to get a full flavor palate for our readers to wet your appetite.  Our kids are fairly picky when it comes to new experiences however with some guidance based on past experiences, we easily guided them to the correct choices.  Our little guy choose the Chicken Kabob Plate with rice and Greek salad.  Our oldest selected the Beef Kabob Plate also with rice and Greek salad.  Alma selected a Homemade Red Lentil Soup and the Greek salad and I chose the Adana Kabob Plate with rice and Greek salad.  Adana is a ground beef and lamb kabob mixed with Mediterranean spices.  I had never tried lamb and wanted to reach outside my comfort zone although that isn't hard to do for me.  When it comes to food, my motto is, "Put it in front of me and watch your fingers!"  We all sampled a bit of one another's plates and enjoyed a casual dining experience with excellent service and soft music playing in the background.  The restaurant also has a beautiful outside patio with gas lanterns and a gorgeous view of the Southern California skies.

The food is delicious, offering large portions at very reasonable prices.  Other plates we saw during our visit included a Grilled Salmon plate, Falafel plate as well as some incredible appetizers like the Roasted Eggplant and Hummus. They offer options for every diet including vegetarian, gluten free and diary free. Authentic food in the heart of Irvine, well worth travelling for a night out with your spouse, friends or a great date spot featuring many local entertainment options nearby.  The O-live Tree is also available for catering and can host private parties upon reservation.

The O-live Tree can be found at 2010 Main Street Irvine, CA 92614.  For reservations call 949-250-1838.  On Saturday, March 19th, The O-live Tree is hosting an evening of dinner and belly dancing, an amazing event to put on your calendar.  You must call now for reservations, seating is limited and filling up quickly.  Click on the link for a belly dancing dinner brochure explaining the event!

We recommend this restaurant, your family will love it.
