Funny to have the Olive Street Bistro suggested for me to review. It was seriously gutted by fire over a year ago and has been closed ever since. No buzz about rebuilding, a tear-down at this point. No real loss from recent years.

Sadly this restaurant burnt to the ground several months ago; it is no more. It was a very nice place for both lunch and dinner for a long time.

This restaurant burned down a few months ago. Had dinner there a few months before and was very dirty.

The food here was always awful. Maybe they can use that insurance money to build a new menu and hire a new staff.

A second visit, and unfortunately worse than the first. First visit was mediocre at best--- this one was a disaster! Seems owner had been traveling for several weeks and just returned on this Saturday night. However, one small problem..... no one had ordered any red meat...... so a large portion of the menu items were not available.... on a Saturday... More

I wrote a positive review in January 2012. This will not be a positive review. I do not know what has happened to the owners, to the chef, to the wait staff, but I do know that it is all bad. What a shame, because this was once a special place. To start, our party of four was shown to... More

Things are not what they used to be at this once proud, but now thread-worn establishment. Ownership has changed and one can tell. I recently went for lunch and it was not very enjoyable. Things moved very slowly and the wait for our lunchtime special was 50, that's right 50 minutes. Not too good when one has an hour long... More

Food is excellent, and the desserts are divine! The chef offers daily specials that allow him to stretch his cultural roots and give dinners an experience to remember. The restaurant is a little dark but the atmosphere is very peaceful, great for a date night!

My friends and I ate lunch here on Saturday in early June. We were looking for Italian because I wanted a big meal before starting my journey home (good thing, because my flight was 3 hours late). None of us had any idea about where to eat in Shreveport, so when this came up on my friend's ipad as not... More
