The service was really nice and accommodated my gluten-free requests with understanding. That's HUGE as not every server gets it or is aware enough to offer options. My husband and I enjoyed our time and meal. The food was good and the restaurant quiet. I only wish more restaurants could offer some g-free options for dessert...flourless chocolate cake is so decadently delicious and would surely appeal to those with or without gluten issues...just one of many options and a personal fave. Oh well...maybe next time.

We had dinner here for our 36 year anniversary ... we were hotel guests and had also stayed here on our wedding night in 1982. We were promptly seated and attended to. Miguel was our excellent waiter who took great care of us all evening. We were served a glass of champagne that our daughter had ordered for us. We started with the fried oysters that were incredibly delicious and perfectly cooked. My husband ordered the filet Oscar that he raved about and I had the red snapper that was cooked to perfection and delicious. His filet was cooked perfectly at medium rare and was perfectly seasoned. The cauliflower mash served under my fish was delicious. We were then treated to a delicious crème brulee for our anniversary and it was beautifully presented. Miguel was outstanding and personable and shared some stories of the restaurant, the hotel, Hurricane Harvey and we loved hearing them as we love this hotel and the staff. It was the perfect evening to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary and we are so grateful that Olivette is such a beautiful restaurant with such an engaging staff. We will definitely return and I have already posted rave reviews on Facebook.

This may be a hotel restaurant, but it is anything but ordinary and well worth the trip to come here. We happen to live nearby and love eating at Olivette. The restaurant is beautiful, and one of Houston’s finest. They not only have great seafood and steak, but the best vegetarian dish I have ever had anywhere. The service is always extraordinary. The bar is very lively and because it’s at a boutique hotel, there are always interesting people from all over the country to visit with. My wife and I were celebrating our birthdays, and out of all the great restaurants in Houston, this is the place we chose. That says alot. It is a place we love.

We were served stale bread and seafood that tasted like it came out of the freezer. Nothing was fresh. And at $35/plate, we were very disappointed. We don’t plan to go back.

Unbeknownst to my husband and me, the Olivette only serves Brunch on Sundays and we were wishing to eat lunch. Our waiter Eduard offered to ask the chef if he could prepare a lunch for us of roast chicken and vegetables and he very kindly did. The food was delicious, hot and served quickly. We really appreciated their willing response to meet our request. Eduard and Jennifer are to be commended. We have eaten there many times and will certainly return in the future.

Having lunch here during the Christmas holidays is magical. The variety of entree salads is excellent and their cracker bread is a must. The only problem was that the place we were sitting was so cold - I think because of the cold coming in from the outside- that it was uncomfortable. Otherwise, perfect.

OK this is a hotel restaurant, happens to be close enough to our home that we can walk there. Hotel restaurants are not always the best, they have a captive audience. But The Houstonian Hotel is boutique and the restaurant is superb. I eat vegetarian when possible, and I had the hominy and bean fricasee - the finest vegetarian dish I have ever eaten. My wife had the delicious wild caught salmon. We shared the large and unique southwest salad. Service was wonderful. We have eaten here many times, loved our dinner, recommend highly. An added plus is the lively bar with hotel guests from all over the world to meet and people watch. If you are just visiting Houston or you live here like us, this is a great place to be.

We had brunch buffet, the food was ok, not many people there, so it was quite. It's lightly on the high price end for what they offer but we had a good time with friends. The real complain we had was misquotes , one of my friends got 5-6 big bites on her knees.

The trout was dry. We went because of the some items that were on the menu and they said they had not had them for four months. The cappuccino machine was broken so that was out.
So if you want mediocre food for a high price and beautiful ambience I recommend it.
