Wow, love their food. I make it a point to eat there whenever I am in Brea.
Olive Pit Mediterranean Grill – One of the best Mediterranean places that I have been to. The way you order and get your own table is like a fast food place, but the food and the price are not like a fast food place (way... better and more... expensive).
Service was good. The place was packed, but again we went on a Saturday night, so we had to stand by a table to wait for that party to leave.
Food was delicious. I don't think we had a plate that we did not like (it's more like which plates do I like more than the others). I wouldn't order "Grilled Octopus" again, not because it wasn't good, but because it wasn't worth it! It was maybe one arm of a tiny octopus chopped into small bite sizes with three olives and a couple of pita bread slices for $9. Had they put more octopus on the plate, I would order it again.
We ordered several combination plates. I usually am afraid to order chicken breast at these places because most place just try the heck out of the chicken, but surprisingly chicken breast was moist and tender. Falafel was crispy on the outside and had a good taste to them as well. My favorite was the lamb gyro with some sauce on top. Flat iron steak was cooked medium and tasty also. Hummus was pretty much the same as other places. Tzatziki sauce was very good though.
Kabobs (chicken, lamb, and steak) were all good. Each kabob comes with 4 pieces of meat with onions and bell peppers in between.
Combination dinner plate with two sides are $14.95. A la carte is $6.85
Kaoob plates with 3 kabobs and 2 sides are from $16 and up. A la carte is $4.50/kabob and up.
The plates sound like there would be big portions of meats and sides, but not big enough to share between two hungry people.
I will definitely go back there again.
I love The Olive Pit – This is definitely a favorite for me. I am here almost every weekday for lunch! Their Roasted Artichoke Hearts are to dye for! I recommend this place to anyone. I really wish they had a location in south county. But I visit this location since its near my work. Olive Pit you ROCK!!!
