Olivier's Creole Restaurant in the French Quarter
Authentic French Quarter Creole restaurant cooking dishes handed down through five generations. We're family-owned and operated, moderately priced, and quintessentially New Orleans, right down to our renowned Southern hospitality
Just ate at Olivier's today for Thanksgiving. My entire meal was horrible. My corn and crab bisque was very salty; my pecan encrusted oysters were dry and tasteless and were served with a cheap BBQ sauce (weird); my turkey was dry, my dressing looked like something my dog threw up, and my giblet gravy looked and tasted like liver mush, only worse. I thought the pecan pie for desert might be a meal-saver, but it had some sort of weird glaze on it that made it taste awful. The only good thing is that I saved a ton of calories this Thanksgiving!
the food was amazing. the atmosphere was phenomenal. the pigeons were a little annoying but they were cute. the service however, was horrible. i was in a party of four. we were there for two hours and never got a refill the only time we saw our server was when we made our order, our order was delivered, and when our check was ready. since our service was pretty poor we left a smaller tip than normal. as we were leaving our waitress approached me and asked where the rest of her money was and then told me that my friends and i can go to burger king with our money. (all of her explicits were left out.) all in all. the poor service overshadowed the otherwise positive experience.
The dinner was great! The service was attentive but not intrusive. Save room for desert. We enjoyed the pecan crusted oyster appetizer. Both the redfish special entree and the catfish received rave reviews from everyone in our party of 6. It should be a New Orleans destination for you!
Visited Oliviers in April 06. From what we could see some restaurants were still suffering from Katrina (ie poor staff), Oliviers was not one of them. The service was excellent, the food very good and all at reasonable prices. Will definately vist there again in June 07. Cant wait.
Food was excellent, in particular the rabit and the gumbo. Service could have been slightly more attentive, but we dined at the end of the evening and would expect it to be flawless normally. Quiet enough for a couple to enjoy a nice conversation without being bothered.
Great food, prices, services and wonderful atmosphere. Great place for a romatic New Orleans dinner. Ryan, our waiter, is a must. He knew what we wanted before we could tell him. This restaurant is a hidden secret in the city.
