Nice warm baked rolls, Tula's Salad dressing and a selection of main dishes to choose from. I enjoyed the steak tips and asparagus. The steak tips came out perfectly medium rare and tender. Friendly, pleasant staff.

Olivia's is a nice place. The food is excellent. The only problem and it's minor is it's load. When the train goes by you hear it. I love the Osembocca, excuse my spelling. Go and enjoy your meal.

Olivia's share's space with Kreuger's Flatbread Pizza, both owned by the same family. Olivia's is more fine dining offering entrees and dishes that are not offered at Kreuger's. In my opinion, the food at Olivia's is certainly very good, but I think it's overpriced. I prefer to eat at Kreuger's. We always get their delicious mussel's in butter, white wine... More

HUGE portions, large menu, extensive martini and margarita list. Pan fried artichokes were amazing. Service is always pleasant and prompt. Restaurant is cozy.

Of course we went on a Saturday night and got there a little before 6 p.m., told we would have to wait a half hour or so. It ended up being closer to an hour, BUT the food was to die for. Excellent. There were four of us in our party, all got different food from the menu....all of us... More

Love this restaurant but lately they seem to have lost heart. They seem to close at will and, although they offer the "same menu" at the pizza place next door it is in shortened form and not as well cooked. The menu in Olivia's is more diverse but the specials have become permanent. It was one of our "go to"... More

Service was terrible and so was the food. Got eggplant parm and it was burnt. tasted like shoe leather. Another got the veal and said it was as bad as the service. Got there at 4:30. Wasn't that busy but the waitress never was around for more drinks or to ask how everything was. Didn't eat mine and she asked... More

Always good; food, atmosphere and service. Large menu list, good choice of cocktails, wine and beer. Prices are fair, a place to go to on a regular basis.
