The service was extremely friendly and the owner who introduced himself was very gracious and seemed to sincerely desire genuine feedback.
The only criticism I'd lay against the Olive Tree Cafe, is that while the colors and decor of the place are a nice start, it still has very strip-mall-y feeling. The florescent lights are far too bright, and then when the owner's wife noticed us noticing the very pretty glass pendant lamps not being turned on, she flipped the switch, adding about 8 100-watt (seemingly) halogens to the mix.
I'd suggest looking at Exotic Thai in Moline (or on 53rd in Dav.) to see what can be dome with a restaurant in a strip mall, as far as lighting and decor are concerned.
Give this place a lower lit, cooler "oasis in the desert" kind of feel and it will be a "10."
