I went to Olivia for the first time a couple weeks ago and received excellent service. The food was amazing, everything was artfully prepared and delicious. I expressed to the bartender that I am eating gluten-free and the chef prepared a special plate for me!

It's a little expensive, but worth every penny for the quality of ingredients, service, and atmosphere.

How often to do you get to visit the chickens who laid the eggs you enjoyed for brunch? It feel like an episode of the series "Portlandia. At Olivia, situated just a 100 feet from the dining room is a real honest to goodness chicken coop. A nice practical, natural touch as the foundation to inspired home cooked gourmet egg and other breakfast and brunch items. Well worth a visit in Austin.

Olivia's seemed to be a popular place for brunch when we ate here on Labor Day week-end. The menu had many enticing offerings. I thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp and gouda grits with succulent grilled shrimp with barbecue sauce over luscious, creamy, cheesy grits. The portion was more than adequate for brunch. My friend chose the house cured smoked salmon that was deemed delicate and non-salty. Service was attentive but not overly solicitous. Freshness and quality rule here.
