Great food

Great food, little pricy but atmosphere and décor was cold and not very welcoming. High back booth's were nice. Have been trying to go since they have opened and finally got there. May go back due to the food being so good. :)

We had my folks with us on a trip to see my Hillsdale student. The plan was to make a further drive to find a quality dinner. After a day of antiquing in Allen, we were wiped out and not interested in driving very far. We decided to try Olivia's. None of us were disappointed in our meals, I was... More

This restaurant was also recommended by the hosts at Munro House. The calamari was amazing, best we ever had. The entrees were excellent and portions were over the top. When we return, we will definitely seek out this restaurant again.

We did not have a reservation on a Saturday evening. We waited for 30 minutes. After seating we received our drinks and then waited another 25 minutes for our meals. My son and I had the strip steak and crab cakes. We didn't like the crab cakes the steak was tasty but very greasy. The mashed potatoes were lukewarm. The... More

was checking restraurants for special deserts to celebrate someone's birthday but see nothing listed on your menu. Always loved you as Chicago Water Grill but have been disappointed not so much in the food but the quality of drinks (skimpy) and the service. So we have only visited a few times. Thought we would give you another try since I... More

First time visiting this restaurant. Had a group of ten. Waitress had to be urged to get the beer list. Then.. She was serving and she spilled 2 beers behind me, the beer went down my back, and the seat of my pants.. obviously they apologized, so we continued on. I figured they would make it right on my bill.... More

Went to meet friends for a meeting and our food was great. But the experience lacked in service. Our waitress was something to be desired. She brought drinks out to only dumped them on the floor directly behind my boyfriend and I and all we received was I'm sorry. Just a little bit disappointed nothing more was done considering my...

We ate at Olivias to celebrate a retirement with some family members. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the wines we ordered. For starters we ordered the calamari and mahi mahi fish tacos. Excellent choice. The calamari was some of the best I have ever had. The entrees come with potato or risotto and vegetable. Soup or salad is ala carte.... More

Decent food with good service. Tries a little hard to be that big city restaurant in a small Midwest town. The food was flavorful, but bacon in polenta is a little much. Nice concept with the wall of wines and we had a well priced Malbec.
