We loved the feel of Olivia's. Very laid back and casual. Friendliest cast members we encountered at Disney! I felt the Disney "magic" for the first time on our trip - and this was our last day. But (don't you hate the but?), the food came out of the kitchen more slowly then we experienced at other Disney table service places. We liked the environment and everyone was so friendly, it wasn't a huge deal, but should be noted.

The food itself was awesome. The shrimp and grits are a must! Best I've had anywhere and I live in the Carolinas. Desserts were awesome. Best of the trip. Olivia's is worth the trip for sure.

We started out our vacation here. Breakfast was quite good but it was the service and atmosphere that made the meal. My 7 year old was able to display his picture that he coloured on a small easel by the front door. He received a certificate for "Artist of the Day". When we requested to come back later and pick up his picture they informed us that we could or that they could send the picture to Mickey. Of course, we chose to have the picture sent to Mickey!
Our Server was fantastic and this was probably the best service we had a Disney restaurant on this trip. The prices are reasonable for a Disney restaurant.

We ate at this restaurant because it was at the resort that we were staying in. We had eaten here before in 1999 and it was good but nothing special. This time it was really excellent food. I believe that all the food at Disney has gotten better as the years go on.

Food is average at best and service is very poor. Not what I have come to expect from Disney. We came for an early supper. It was not crowded. We waited 30 minutes for our meal. The food was grossly undercooked. The waitress never came back to check on the meal or refill our drinks. I had to go to the front desk and ask to see a manager. I am a DVC member and will never eat here again

Generally poor food and questionable service. If you stay at this hotel, avoid the restaurant and take a boat to Downtown Disney, where at least you will get some entertainment...
