Diner Reviews
  • "Started with a wonderful bread basket and we had great service throughout the meal. The dishes were hit and miss. My wife loved her lamb, but my snapper with black rice and coconut was mushy and tasteless. Emptiness of restaurant on Saturday night dampened atmosphere and made it feel like we were eating in a hotel restaurant, not a hot Houston restaurant."

  • "It's a typical hotel restaurant, doing just enough to satisfy the bus traveler. Wait staff was good, food was undistinguished."

  • "We had the shrimp escabeche for appetizer, and poached fish for main course. It was delicious. The desserts were very good, too, specially the chocolate mousse."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The food was good too but I don't eat red meat or pork and not much fish (I'm sure I'm one of those the chefs love to hate). Even so, I felt the menu was somewhat limited for me. I do eat chicken but had to request it without the "bacon lardon" and I picked out the chicken livers to give to my husband. Next time I will try the vegetarian dish (portobello mushroom with gnocchi). My husband enjoyed his steak. Service: impeccable. Scenery: Gorgeous. Ambiance: Quiet, relaxing, romantic. Dessert was a yummy Pavlova-type dessert - also complementary and they even wrote "Happy Anniversary" on the plate. We enjoyed the experience and would return. We felt the prices were very reasonable for a fine dining atmosphere. Next visit: Brunch"

  • "Olivette was a wonderful experience -- service was impeccable and food was perfectly prepared. This is not your typical hotel restaurant - far from it. It is an elegant, relaxed dining experience. We will return again and again!"

  • "I had my second dinner at Olivette the very night after my first. This time, just for 3 people, different from my dinner guests the night before. Wow! Again, it all was excellent. Very gourmet."

  • "I had a party of 9 for a business dinner, and we all were extremely impressed with everything about this restaurant. We all were there for a philanthropy-related conference at the hotel. There clearly is no need for one to go searching for a great restaurant in town when one has Olivette. As far as I'm concerned, this is a destination restaurant. Everything was excellent."

  • "Olivette is always accommodating. Everything was prepared as I ordered it. The arugula salad with dried cherries and walnuts could not have been fresher. I had the grilled chicken breast, which while good, could have used a bit more time on the grill. The service is efficient, friendly and accommodating. This is a great place to dine and have conversation."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Olivette, in the Houstonian Hotel, offers a slightly out of the way and out of the furor experienced in many Galleria area restaurants. Conversation without elevating one's voice is easy as the acoustics and table spacing are ideal for privacy. There is no compromise in the quality of food or service and the valet parking is complimentary. We've enjoyed it for years and twice just this week."

  • "This was our second time dining at Olivette this month, so we decided to try new dishes and were very pleased! The roasted chicken is delicious and full of fun flavor combinations (pear, bacon, egg, frisee - it's a treat). I would say skip appetizers and save room for dessert. The pavlova and creme brulee are both amazing!"

  • "Stayed an evening at the Houstonian to celebrate my birthday. The ambience was great at the Olivette. It has an old world Texan - Tuscan feel of luxury. The service was impeccable! I did not care for the torn green salad, but my wife's southwest Caesar was stellar. We shared a Beef Wellington which was the best I have ever had. The server recommended the Tres leches dessert and he did not lie it is perfection. I would definitely return for another special event... but it is a bit costly and not for the everyday..."

  • "Healthy delicious food,perfectly served. Breads fresh and delicious. Tomato basil soup with no cream very good. Crab cake delicious. Great place to conduct business or a conversation. Beautiful campus."

  • "We picked this restaurant because of proximity to an event we were going to and were pleased with the choice. The food was wonderful, particularly the filet and the pork shank. We finished off our meal off with creme brulee, which was a little burnt on top, but delicious underneath and came with a fun assortment of petite cookies on the side. We will definitely go back!"

  • "I can't say enough about the service in this place. The waitstaff is well-trained, attentive and courteous in serving the simple (simple, not easy) executions of the chef. In a hotel restaurant at a place like the Houstonian (upscale old money vibe) I expect decent food and perfect service. I strolled into the restaurant an hour after close and asked the only person back there, who I think was the executive chef, to make my friend who just got married a cheeseburger and fries. He did it, no problem, in no time. He also boxed for me and wouldn't charge me for it. THAT is dedication to service above the call of duty, and I will not forget my experience at this place anytime soon."

  • "Very nice atmosphere, so quiet and every body could hear what everyone is saying not like the loud restaurants where you can only talk to the one nearest you. Serivece was great. We had a birthday celebration and our celebrator had a great night. Her wish of a birthday cake was beautifully prepared for her. We were pleasantly surprised with the big pieces/slices of 2 different birthday desserts of tres leches and chocolate cake. They were complimentary. Thanks Olivette."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner at Olivette to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Food was delicious and service was very attentive. When our desert came out they had written "Happy Anniversary" on the plate and we were given 2 complimentary glasses of Moet and Chandon champagne which was extremely generous. The prices are very reasonable and we will definitely return."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Nice menu - varied and very good. Fantastic service and best of all, Olivette is quiet so we could actually talk and enjoy our meal. We were celebrating a birthday and were treated to a beautiful "Happy Birthday" dessert plate."

  • "I decided to take the challenge of trying to make a reservation for Valentines based on recommendations from friends. The atmosphere was not what I expected. If you like a lodge feel then this place is ideal for you. If you want to experience a romantic night with incredible food then you may want to go to one of the many restaurants Houston has to offer. I don't mind paying $250 for great food, service and atmosphere but I felt like I just through my money in a shredder. The service was outstanding."

  • "We had dinner at Olivette on a Friday evening, but the restaurant was pleasantly quiet and not crowded. The food was delicious, portions were perfect, and the presentation was good. Service was also great. We will definitely return to this restaurant."

  • "I went for brunch, the appetizer was so good, comfortable chairs, so pretty garden, but the egg Benedict with mayonnaise was frustrating. The plates are for 2. Too much heavy food, but for a hotel restaurant wasn't so bad."

  • "There were five of us ladies dining for Saturday brunch. The food was lovely (even though my omelet came out wrong), and the service was great until the check was dropped. We realized the waiter added a 20% post tax gratuity, and they also charged us $12 each for VERY small and very oj-heavy mimosas. Our fault for not asking. Will go again, just think adding grat for a table of 5, 20% at that, and $12 each mimosas (not bottomless) was a little shocking."

We love the beautiful lit trees on the property, all the Christmas decorations, and best of all, the Gingerbread Houses and Train! The night we went there was a children's choir! Just lovely! The food was great too! We'll be back next year for a special night!"
