Top-notch balance of affordability, quality, expertise, accessibility. Nice walking neighborhood, open high-ceiling space with decent noise abatement (a personal plus), excellent and reasonably-priced wine list. Tapas menu is solid, diverse, but not overkill. Fresh prep, good cooking techniques. Postres as good as the frias i calientes. Top marks to the floor staff, especially senior waiter Juan (7pm 8/10/19), who was absolutely on-point: attentive, unpushy, capable of engaging individually and personably, made good and thoughtful recommendations. Floor staff, and Juan in particular, push the rating to a "5". Unmissable.

YASSOO, I was in the mood for a good platter of Gyros---I found it here. They offered the dinner platter with their fries. But it lacked seasoning of ted and white sauces...â¦ I will return, I love gyros and shawarma food.

The first of it's kind specializing in Mediterranean cuisine & fresh seafood since 1992 located in the heart of Downtown Evanston.
We held a special graduation party at Olive Mountain and we were treated like family. The food was bountiful and delicious. We started with hummus and falafel and there were plates up and down the table, then fresh, crisp salads with vinaigrette, and then chicken kebab -- trays just loaded with delicious chicken medallions on a bed of roasted carrots and potatoes. Plates of steaming yellow rice were served as well.The waiter said that their chef is Jordanian and I felt like I was in a restaurant downtown Amman. Our guests were wide-eyed at all the food and the convivial service. Just when I thought I was asking for too much, the waiter assured me he was ready if we needed anything else at all. It's really hard to put into words the value of that kind of service when we were entertaining family and out of town guests. I really can't thank Olive Mountain enough for making our celebration extra special. The best in Evanston.
