Went in for dinner and the service was just OK, mixed up our order and was slow on the draw. The meatballs were just kind of warm and not a lot of flavor. On the bright side the Petit Verdot was excellent!

Food was excellent, service perfect and environment intimate yet open. There are many items from which to choose; my Prawn Etouffee was delicious as was the Lasagna chosen by my dinner partner.

Fat Olives is our go to restaurant for special occasions. Believe me or not, but we do take home. The food is always ready and well prepared and we benefit by being just a few minutes away.
