Welcome to Nightwood. Jason Hammel and Amalea Tshilds, owners of Logan Square's Lula Cafe, invite you to join us in Pilsen -- at our open kitchen, on our patio, in our wine room, with the warmth and fragrance of applewood scenting the air.<br /><br />We are a farm to table restaurant, featuring local produce and sustainably sourced meats and fish on an ever-changing, handwritten menu. <br /><br />Spit roasted chicken, whole slow cooked pork, squash grilled over the open flame, a simple bowl of perfect fruit and sorbet. Hand in hand with the best farmers and craftspeople of the midwest, we cook with bold simplicity and care. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.

"Given it was still winter, we should have realized the food would not be local, but we were still a bit disappointed. It seemed that the portions were small and several of the dishes were ordered seemed overly complicated ... and perhaps not worth all the effort (like the pasta with goo). The space is great, the service was terrific, the food just didn't really suit or satisfy our group of 4, And it was quite expensive. We were hoping for a more low-key, local experience."

"We had great seafood dishes for lunch with a fresh salad. Our server was very pleasant, always on call but not hovering. It was particularly quiet the day we went. Will definitely go again. Especially enjoyed the fact that they included fresh veg which was NOT overcooked with our fish."

"We ate early so we could be there as the sun set and had a great spot by the window. The restaurant was very busy with staff hustling by with frequency -- that did not keep our server from checking in with us regularly. We enjoyed the meal -- however, their special salad (served in the most enormous bowl) was really over-dressed and over salted ... to the point where we could not eat it. Very disappointing. Our server did offer to have the salads remade (stating that she could SEE the excessive dressing), but it seemed too late. I hope that the kitchen staff was made aware so they could take more care for later diners. I think it might have been nice to offer us an after dinner drink or even a coffee as compensation. They didn't bother."

Dining under the shady trees on Olive and Ivy’s massive patio feels more like Southern France than southern Scottsdale. If you are looking for pomp and circumstance of quiet elegance, try the signature private-dining venue, the Stamp Room. If it’s night-life, we have you covered twice with the outdoor lounge and bar. You’ll enter your own little Mediterranean world the first moment you set foot in Olive & Ivy.<br /><br />For some, the day simply doesn’t start unless it starts at The Marketplace at Olive & Ivy. Scents of fresh-baked muffins, croissants, and dark rich espresso lure passersby in from the quiet sidewalk. They read the paper. They sip squeezed orange juice. They toast the morning. Help yourself start every day the right way at the Marketplace.

"We were very pleased with our dinner here. Nice decor, free underground parking.
Nice menu and our server was great--good suggestions, checking in just often enough.
Would definitely return."
