We had one evening in New Orleans between legs of a trip and asked the front desk at our hotel where to eat.\r\n\r\nIt's slightly off the beaten path- but only by a block or two. We walked from our hotel, and found it fairly easily.\r\n\r\nThe staff was exceptional: friendly, helpful, and charming. Since we had our young son with us, they gave us a couple of choices that aren't on the menu just for him. Our food was excellent! The next time we travel through New Orleans, we're definitely going back!

Don't go if you want ""blackened"" anything. It's not cajun, it's creole. And if you don't know the difference, you'll think it to be uninspired. It is not. Everything we tried was the correct amalgam of European and local flavors as it should be.\r\n\r\nTrue locals eat here for a reason.

Pros: Authentic Creole Cuisine

.

The atmosphere is classic New Orleans and the service is first-rate hospitable. The food was good but not great because the flavors were not strong enough. I used to eat here often when I lived on this side of the country and the good is definitely not as good as I remembered. Nevertheless, it is still worth a visit.

On our third day of Amtrak travel from Los Angeles, my husband and I reached New Orleans. We enjoyed exuberant Bourbon Street at night, lurid neon signs, excellent jazz spilling out of doorways, and walking the charming French Quarter streets with cocktails in hand. Our fortunate destination, recommended by our hotel concierge: venerable, genteel Olivier's Restaurant, featuring original Creole recipes. From the first stunningly nuanced, flavor-layered spoonful of rich, satisfying gumbo to the mesmerizing spiciness of the shrimp cocktail sauce, it was a transcendent meal. The subtlety of the spicing actually changed the way I think about seasoning foods. The Creole Rabbit was a teensy bit salty, but how wonderful that a restaurant HAS rabbit as an entree! The Shrimp Creole was marvelously complex; the rice was fluffy and the vegetables properly al dente. \r\n\r\nOn the not-food-but-still-important side, they had a good wine menu. It's a wonderful atmosphere for an intimate meal: romantic lighting, quiet enough to converse, but with great jazz music as soft background. Topping it off, the service was fantastic; attentive yet discreet. Our waiter was so knowledgeable about each ingredient and detail of preparation that at the end, I just gave him an enormous hug (thank you, Scott!) That dinner at Olivier's actually made the trials of a four-day train journey worthwhile. I hope to come back. I didn't get to try the bread pudding... yet!

Pros: Amazingly reasonably priced for exceptional quality Creole specialties

Cons: Creole Rabbit was a tad too salty

its funny, this place has gotten several non-5-star reviews, yet it ""averages"" to 5-stars! how is this possible!? ive noticed they advertise heavily on the site as well. \r\n \r\nanyway, this place is long gone -- it may have been good when the grandfather of the current chef was cooking, i dont know. but currently, its just bland, bland. tacky decor too. i think it gets by on unsuspecting tourists... \r\n \r\ndefinitely not a serious player in the nola dining scene.

Cons: not worth eating at

We dined at Olivier's for the first time last week. We were welcomed, seated, and treated to an absolutely wonderful experience. From the welcome at the front door to the good bye as we left, we were made to feel like old friends. The salad was crisp and fresh, each entre was so pleasing to look at, you almost didn't want to disturb the sight. (You get over that quickly when you taste!) \r\n\r\nThere was a wonderful, non hurried pace that allowed you to truely enjoy the meal, the conversation, the beauty of quieter time. There is a romantic atmosphere in the high ceiling dining room with a beautiful staircase and tall windows with lace curtains. I was told there is additional seating on the second floor and they can accomodate large groups. What a wonderful place for a wedding reception. \r\n\r\nWe are already making plans to return to New Orleans and we will make Olivier's our first dinner reservation.

Best Craw fish Po Boy's on the planet here.Red Beans and Rice not so bad either and the price is inviting. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you open the door. Lots of good smells inside this place, and even better tasting food. They won't empty your wallet on their prices either. Great place for lunch or dinner.

We began the night pleasantly. We had a nice table and our server was kind, honest and helpful. He cooperated with us when we got a bad bottle of wine. Once you begin to look around you notice the small things. The decor was cheap, cheesy grapes painted on the walls. I am used to some poor service because I am young but I am willing to deal with problems as long as the food was good. We began our meal with the appetizers. The eggplant special, like a dark seafood roux over perfectly fried eggplant and Pecan fried oysters. The sauce with the oysters was a katsu BBQ sauce you find at any sushi place. They were both ok, so we were all trying to become more positive about the small problems with the evening. The house dressing was good, as we had read. The problem came when the main course was delivered. Each of the four people dining ordered a different dish but the only distinction on our plates were meat. The accompany rice was seasoned with probably herds de provence, very strong and not FRESH HERBS. The carrots were so sweet it was like having dessert with your meal. The sauce on the duck was not smooth or tasty. The Chicken with cheese sauce is a overly poorly seasoned chicken breast with overcooked mushrooms and straight cheese, not sauce. The pork medallions were closes to enjoyable but still simply mediocre. The one gumbo was basically the sauce we had over the eggplant appetizer. There was random asian ingredients used throughout the meal via special sauces and frying materials. I hate to give a bad review but I would never go back. I believe it is over priced and meant for tourist to have the illusion of a great New Orleans restaurant. i just hope others do not fall for it. As if he knew there was a problem our waiter brought us free dessert. It was too late, but I did not reflect that in his tip. The meal was a waste of the 200 bill. Please choose another great new orleans place to enjoy the town.

Pros: They fry food well but why to ""gormet"" for fried food.

Cons: The food is not up to the par set by other New Orleans Restaurants! Cheap decor.

This is our second visit to Olivier's and it was during the NBA All-Star and I have to say it was an escape that my husband I needed from all the chaos of the weekend. We were greeted by a warm host and sat immediately (we did have reservations). We started with the gumbo and a house salad with Olivier's home made dressing (PLEASE BEGIN SELLING IT!!!) and I could have gone home after those delights, Our entrees were inclusive of the Platter and the catfish specialty. The flavors were rich but never overpowering. The catfish was atop well seasoned potatoes and finished off with a light gravy that I would use on everything. I had the platter and my husband and I basically shared both dishes. It was just enough food for me to stop but I had to have some of their peach cobbler with a homemade whipped cream that, honestly, I wake up dreaming about, Just to ensure we were carried out in a wheel barrell, we had 2 cups of their rich, dark coffee. One of owners stopped by to check on our satisfaction and it added just the right touch to a splendid evening. BRAVO Olivier's, you will be a stop on our itinerary EVERYTIME we come to New Orleans.\r\nThe McMullans

The best service I had while in New Orleans - The restaurant was more casual than I expected from viewing the website and menu; however, we had a great time. You must try the gumbo sampler (3 types of gumbo). My boyfriend had the roast duck and was impressed with the raspberry sauce. The bread pudding hits a home run! Better than my mom makes! Reservations aren't necessary, people were walking in off the street and were promptly seated. Fun little restaurant with great history.

This was absolutely the best I have had in all of my trips to New Orleans! I started with the Eggplant Olivier which was absolutely fantastic! My mouth is watering just thinking about it again! The salad was a basic salad, but you wouldn't know it with the incredible dressing! Creole Garlic Herb Vineagrette, they need to bottle that stuff! For my entree I had the Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloins can you say OH MY GOD! They were soooooo good! The sauce was the perfect blend of sweet and spicy with hints of plum and mint and the pork tenderloin was so moist it melted in my mouth! Although I didn't think I could do anymore, I had to try their Homemade Bread Pudding and boy was I glad I did. It was fantastic and the sauce (a butter rum sauce), I could have put it in a cup and savored it!! The atmosphere was soft lit with table clothes and art and photography on the walls, and the service was perfect! My glass was never empty (did I mention the fantastic wine list?) All in all this is one place that you do not want to miss when going to New Orleans and they will be seeing me again every time I go to this wonderful city!!!!

The concierge directed me here. She raved about the rabbit. I tried the rabbit, it wasn't good. The waiter was no help at all. I asked him for a wine recomendation and an entree recommendation. His response was, ""depends on what you like."" I like good food, and this wasn't it. I started with the gumbo soup. Very small bowl for $7.50 should be good right? 2 small pieces of seafood amidst some rice. Bread and butter: the bread was cold. Salad: just a pile of green lettuce with 1 cherry tomato. Rabbit: Dry, bland, not much meat. Coffee: very good. Decor: cheap and tacky. My bill was around $45 for one person.

THE FOOD IS DELIGHTFUL WITH A SENSE OF FRESHNESS! THE EGGPLANT IS AWESOME AND I REALLY ENJOYED THEIR VERSION OF SHRIMP SCAMPI WITH A CREOLE TWIST. THE STAFF WAS VERY NICE AND CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS GREAT! THIS IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO EAT WHEN VISITING NEW ORLEANS.

First off, the restaurant was a ghost town during mardi gras. We couldn't find reservations anywhere else, so we were grasping at straws. Unfortunately, we drew the Oliviers straw. I won't drag on about every detail, but from the overbearing head waiter, to the clumsy assistant waiter, to the luke warm food for most everyone in my party, to the tough bland gaunt rabbit. This experience was the worst I had in New Orleans during my 7 day stay for Mardi Gras '07. If you're heading to Olivers with a party, i suggest stopping by a hot dog vendor before you head in the door.

I have always loved Olivier's. I make at least a yearly trip to NO and Olivier's has always been a must-stop. To be fair, my mom is a longtime resident and had befriended Mr. Olivier before my first time down, so we get excellent service. The food was divine! The first time my friend tried their gumbo, tears came to her eyes - it was that good. Their gumbo and their fried oysters are among the foods I want as my last meal. The pecan breading on the oysters makes a wonderful flavor! Also, their garlic salad dressing is so good it's hard to imagine more tastes after it. I have never, ever been disappointed in their food and their prices are incredibly reasonable.\r\n\r\nOlivier's is a longtime standard - multiple generations of the family own and operate the restaurant. They are extremely friendly and gracious. This is one place I hope gets and stays back on their feet post-Katrina. If you want yummy, authentic, reasonably priced Creole from those who know it best, you must stop in at Olivier's!

id walked by the place many times, and read the menu and family history in the window. nice story, long legacy, good prices. sadly, it wasnt good.\r\n\r\nas another pointed out, the fried items are *very* bland. we didnt bother finishing the crab-filled mushroom caps -- no taste to them.\r\n\r\nthen we tried the gumbo trio sampler. again, there was just...nothing to them. bland and more bland. so we decided to stop at the apps, not get any entrees. the best thing we had was the complementary bread, and that just wont do.\r\n\r\nas for the ""elegant"" atmosphere.. its pretty kitchy -- bright, pink tablecloths, brassy country-style ceiling fan/light fixtures, etc.. not my cup of tea. i figure if youre going to do elegant, do elegant -- white table clothes, classic chairs, handsome lighting fixtures, that sort of thing.\r\n\r\nso unfortunately, we'll not be going back.

We always make it a point to stop at Olivier's whenever we hit New Orleans. It's a clean, well managed restaurant. Good ambiance. Try the Poulet au Fromage. The herbed garlic salad dressing is excellent.\n\nDue to Katrina, the restaurant isn't staying open as late as it used to. On our last visit the food was good, but it wasn't served as hot as it should be.

Sorry to be the voice of dissent...The atmosphere was very nice, but the food was just OK. Everything on the menu looked so good I couldn't decide what I wanted, so I ordered the Taster's Platter with Fish, Shrimp, Oysters, Crab & Salmon Cake, and Creole Gumbo. Everything had the same bland taste to it, not horrible, but not memorable. The shrimp appetizer was very rubbery and chewy; I think they cooked it too long. Hopefully I just caught them on a bad night, but I dont think Ill be going back. I may not have been so disappointed if the platter wasnt $20. I was hoping the price was based on quality more than quantity, and I was wrong.

This is a great spot for a casual meal. The food is flavorful and service is friendly. Make sure you order the Pecan Breaded Fried Oysters and the Jambalaya with Fried Catfish. The wine list was also a very resonably priced. Great place for a larger group or children.

Don't be fooled by the well-trafficked, high-energy corner on which Olivier's is situated. This is one of those comfortable places that locals are so used to that they tend to forget about it. Still, the occasional meal there is a pleasant…
