Had a wonderful meal here. Must have the Gumbo sampler appetizer ! - delicious. I had their Creole Rabbit which was very tasty and they make a very good Hurricane . Didn’t have room for dessert. I would recommend this restaurant. Reasonably priced and quick service.

This place was recommended to us by our concierge at the hotel. Our food was great! I got the crab stuffed ravioli and it was delicious. My boyfriend had the pork medallions which were also very good. The only complaint was the rice with the pork medallions lacked flavor. Our service was great. Very charming and attentive. We will definitely... More

I meant to actually review this previously and forgot. Was reviewing another trip and remembered this. Typically we are food lovers and have enjoyed almost every place we have eaten in NOLA. This however, was awful from start to finish. I realize Thanksgiving is not a great day to try to eat out, but we were traveling as a family... More

A small and very pleasant restaurant. We had the new potato and caviar ap with creole rabbit and crab ravioli with taro sauce for mains. All were excellent. Our waiter Charles was very attentive. I would also recommend their classic Hurricane and bread pudding. Highly recommended.

I arrived in NOLA late and wanted to grab some local food. Dr. Don at my hotel recommended Olivier's and I was not disappointed. Only 2 short blocks from the Westin and since I was alone at night, I didn't want to go too far. I was greeted immediately and the atmosphere is casual and welcoming. I tried the shrimp... More

I had their "famous" rabbit dish and found it bland and uninspiring. The appetizer I had was excellent, however, as was the bread pudding. I would not go back...

Excellent service, delicious food, and a Hurricane that's better than Pat O'Brien's because it's made with real fruit juice! An elegant yet comfortable atmosphere. A little on the expensive side, but worth it.

Had a good meal with good service in the middle of a very packed tourist season for Mardi Gras. They do great BBQ Shrimp and the Bread Pudding rocks!

This is just not one of my favorite New Orleans's restaurants. The food is just so-so. The dishes lacked spices that I associate with creole food.
