My wife and I waited for 45 minutes for a hamburger, with no attention from the staff, disgusted I left a 20 dollar bill and headed for Mcdonalds. The lack of service and slow kitchen will prevent me from ever visiting again.
The ambient/colonial was nice, but it took us an unusually long time to get our meals. We just had salads - mine with steak on it. We were very surprized to see all of the big meals being served to folks who had come in after us. We were not offered any explanation. The salads tasted fresh albeit made only with iceberg lettuce. My friend ordered a piece of coconut pie and the first mouthfull burned her mouth..... another surprize that coconut pie was served not only warm but microwave hot. We busied ourselves with talk while waiting for our checks.. I paid mine with a debit card. The waitress did not give me my card with the three or four pieces of paper for my ticket and TOLD me to sign one of those. I was pretty distracted by then, left a marginol tip, stuffed the remaining tickets in my pocketbook and we left.
When I got back home an hour later, I noticed that my debit card was not in my pocketbook with my slips of paper. I called immediately and the young lady that answered the phone said that I had left my credit card. We believe that the card was not returned with the slips of paper. It was red in color and I usually do not miss it although it could not be proven.
Both my friend and I did not remember her handing the card back to me. That was not a good experience for us.
Long overdue review - we ate at Olivia's in the Village year before last Christmas and had an absolutely marvelous time! The food was excellent the ambiance wonderful and our waiter was truly knowledgeable of wine, food and local color. The time we spent in the Gloucester area was a wonderful travel memory, more especially the dining experience we had at Olivia's in the Village. We highly recommend it to all.
We just bought a house in Gloucester and our realtor Joe was kind enough to both treat us to lunch as well as give us a gift certificate to Olivia's in the Village.
Wow, both the lunch we had and the dinner were superb. We had salads and soups for lunch, every meal was great.
It was so good we were all excited about going back for dinner. And we were even happier on our 2nd visit, the wine list was very reasonable, the steak and sauce I had were tender and well seasoned, my wife had a fish dish and was in love. Again the salads were crisp and nicely flavored, the food was superb!!!
and to cap it off, the owner circulates amongst the diners to see how things are and the service staff can't do enough for you. Very pleasant and they seem to enjoy their work. I will say this, we are from Northern Calif, we travel all over the West and East Coast, Olivia's served us as fine a meal as either of us could ever remember eating.
Do yourself a favor, make this one of your stops going thru Gloucester, easy to find, easy parking and what a meal!!
Olivia's is one of my favorite Gloucester resturants. Gary, the owner, works hard to treat his customers well and provide good food. I hear they now offer a fine dining experience in the back area and a new menu.
