We had breakfast here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The restaurant was nearly empty when we arrived at 9:00 on a weekday. Our group tried the buttermilk pancakes, oatmeal pancakes and banana stuffed French toast and all were very pleased with their choices. In fact, we may go back in the morning!

This is not a fine cuisine restaurant, but very proper for the hotel. There are 3 menus during the day (breakfast, lunch & dinner). All menus have sufficient choices and the food is really fresh and tasty, and also reasonably priced. Nice and speedy service. What else one could expect from a hotel ?

We ate dinner and breakfast at Olivette. The ambiance is old world and looks out over the trees surrounding the Houstonian property. We had a nice window table. The bread assortment and sea salted butter was delish. I had a salad, snapper, and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. It was all good. The waiter was very nice with my son who wanted a steak. His parents didn't want to pay adult steak prices, so the waiter suggested a steak from the steak sandwich on the bar menu. My son and his parents were happy with that. There was quite a delay between the salad and the main course. No one stopped to say anything about the delay or when we could expect our food. Luckily we weren't in a huge hurry and just enjoyed our wine and the view.

Breakfast was good. I had a huge egg white omelette. My son liked his huevos rancheros. However, my husband's waffle with blueberry and lemon was fantastic.

We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner here and all were excellent. In the morning if you need to get off to a meeting, the service is fast and food delicious. Try the eggs Benedict. For lunch the same, good for business meeting, or a quick bite. For dinner, you can relax and enjoy a range of choices from salmon to filet Mignon. I recommend the filet and the southwestern style Ceasar salad.

The food is good ... the portions are huge ... the service is excellent, but the coffee needs improvement.
