I have been here twice in the past month. The first time we sat on the outside enclosed patio. The food was great, but the service was poor. I thought it was because we were out of sight of the server. Next time we went...inside. It is never crowded, so feels very safe inside. We ordered and got our food in a timely manner, but waited forever for refills on water, then waited forever again for the bill. We were 5 feet from the “employees only” divider and could hear them chatting back there, but no one came out to help us until we called out to them. This is a great little restaurant with a reasonably priced menu and really good food, but the service is atrocious!More

We visited on Christmas morning and had a wonderful meal. There is indoor booth and table seating as well as an outdoor option. All of our meals were tasty and the portions were generous. We had a fantastic cinnamon roll French toast; a crab Benedict;...a pancake, egg, and bacon combo; and an egg white omelet. The coffee was good and the tea came in individual pots that stayed warm and held a refill. Service was friendly. The kitchen was a bit slow but worth the wait. Entrance is through a hotel lobby and to the left. They take reservations though we really didn’t need them.More

We stayed next door at the Safari Inn and this restaurant is part of the sister hotel. Wait staff very friendly. My picky daughter found something she iiked and surprisingly ate it all. I had the salmon diah that was perfectly cooked - delicious.

We stayed at the Safari Inn next door and ate at least one meal per day during our stay. We always had great service and delicious food. The grandkids even cleaned their plates without making any faces....this is an amazing feat in itself :-).

We couldn't find anything more appealing close to the hotel so we opted to try the restaurant on site. One must go through the bar to get to the restaurant which isn't immediately obvious. Worth doing though. The staff both times were friendly and gladly...answered our questions. Service was kind of poky but we weren't in a hurry. The food was quite delicious and generously sized. This is a pleasant place to eat with a nice selection of menu items.More

My wife and I went here for breakfast during our stay in Burbank. We were staying at the Safari Inn across the street. It is not a very big dining area. We went on a Saturday morning around 930 and it was pretty empty. We...seated ourselves and within a couple of minutes were greeted by a waitress. We ordered a couple of different omelettes. My wife ordered the California omelette and she said it was really good with fresh vegetables. I ordered a sausage, bacon, mushroom and cheese omelette. The omelettes were loaded with ingredients and were very good. Our waitress came back once while we were eating and the other time when we were done with the bill. It was nice as she did not bug us constantly while we were eating. It was a very enjoyable breakfast and if in the area again, we would definitely stop back in.More

ホテルについているレストラン、12/24でも22時までやってくれて助かりました。 Holiday nightで訪れた時間も20時と少し遅かったため、私たち以外にお客さんはおらず、少し心苦しかったのですが、 接客も味もボリュームも価格も素晴らしかったです! ・shrimp cocktail $13 ・shrimp pesto $18 ・mushroom ravioli $17 でとっても美味しかったです。 Shrimpもたくさん入っていました。 アットホームで素敵な雰囲気なので、観光でいらっしゃっても落ち着けると思います。 バーの方も素敵でした。 We went there at 8:00pm Dec 24, there were no guests but us. I felt sorry a little bit, but the server’s service was really nice and we...had relieves. We ordered 3 plates, a shrimp cocktail, shrimp pesto, mushroom ravioli, and everything was really tasty. We were satisfied with the volume and price too. I can recommend this restaurant to my Japanese friends!More

I would have given Olive's Bistro 3 stars if they didn't have such great people serving tables. Friendly, enthusiastic and charming! The food was good and the portions extremely generous for the cost. However, the giant elephant in the room was the overly long time...it took the food to get out of the kitchen. Had dinner one evening and breakfast the next morning - we waited over 30 minutes each time for food to get to the table. Olive's needs to reexamine their kitchen procedures.More
