“Enjoyable Meal”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Decided to eat here on our last night in Canada and we were both happy that we did. Service was good and the food was well presented. We weren't particularly hungry but would have liked the sorbet as dessert, which appeared on the menu. Unfortunately it was Unavailable - the only disappointment of the evening.

“The worst Cesar Salad ever!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We felt attracted by the patio facing the Market square of Kingston, but the meal did not achieve our expectations. To be remarked, a Cesar salad that consisted of a few lettuce leafs scarcely accompanied by other ingredients, no chicken or other consistent stuff on it. We left the place still hungry.

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

This restaurant has it all. It's on historic Springer Market Square, it has a sidewalk patio and it has great food. It is one of Kingston's best!

“Wonderful meal, wonderful service”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We just loved Olivea. Such a friendly welcome, unfortunately the weather did not allow us to eat out side so we ate in the back room, the atmosphere was happy and friendly. Our waitress was so helpful. The staff in the kitchen put a meat together that coped with my gluten and dairy intolerance. They use all local ingredients where they can. All in all a very successful evening.

Had a 9:00pm dinner at Olivea downtown Kingston. Great location! We missed the dinner rush, so a nice, quiet dinner with great service. The food was wonderful. we will return.
