“Don't stand on your toes”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

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.

“Burnt Down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

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.

“Not sad to see it go”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

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

“"2 strikes...... you're almost out!"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

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 night!!!

The menu has many enticing dishes- again unfortunately, the food is simply mediocre at best. The pasta has way too much liquid, kind of like pasta soup, and the ingredients just don't taste fresh. If you are an Italian restaurant and your pasta dishes are this mediocre, how could any diner expect any better from the other menu items?

Restaurant Impossible...... Shreveport has a candidate for you!
