Olivier Bistro Ratings and Reviews
I liked it but wanted to like it more. I love French food and I do like the menu. The execution on the appetizer we had (basically fried sardines) was mediocre. The steak was better than average, but I probably would try something else if I went back. Finally, the selection of cheeses and meats were small, but very good.
We miss not going to France this summer as we are staying in the USA for nearly 7 weeks so we wanted a restaurant to relive the memories. This place is it, fantastic! No complaints at all, good choice of menus, the best steak I have had in years! Fantastic ambiance, good choice of wines and not over priced! If you are in the area VISIT!
My wife and I ventured to the South Slope to try the French cuisine at Olivier Bistro. The food was delicious, the service fast, and I liked the bill. No air-conditioning, so it was like Paris on a hot day. Glasses of Kronenbourg (1664) and nice choice of wines definitely added to the atmosphere. Nous avons bien mangé. We had fun, I am sure we will try it again.
Really unhappy with my experience. Made an appointment through OpenTable and specified it was a birthday however it was never mentioned once we got there. Once we got there it took 20 minutes for someone to come to our table. We ordered red wine which was very hot (not room temperature). The foie gras was pure Apple sauce, we ordered mussels which we did not know came with a side of French fries so we asked for an extra side of French fries for a child. Once all of our entrees came with French fries we asked for the extra side to be cancelled which they refused. Did not know what to do with 3 entrees of fries. Also the restaurant did not have signs anywhere saying they do not accept MasterCard or visa! Only American Express. Which is strange! Signs only showed accept American Express is accepted. Overall unhappy. Came for my mothers birthday and will definitely not return again.
Went to dinner on Sunday evening with my husband. This was our first time here. We really did enjoy everything we ate. I had escargot and he had French on oil soup for appetizers. For mains we had mussels and lamb chops. With cocktails, shared drink and coffee the total with tax and tip was $135. We will definitely be back next time we are in the mood for French food.
Excellent choice for our 4th of July. Came for Happy Hour, stayed for dinner, enjoyed the jazz duo, and the service was personal and awesome. The food was the star!! Authentic French it seemed. I had the Beouf Burgonion -- fantastic! Our pate was scrumptious, the pork bely appetizer was perfect. Recommend indeed!!!
It was delicious and the wait staff was super nice. Some of our party was late but they let us go ahead and sit and kept the cocktails flowing for us. I had the risotto, the beouf borgenon and the charcuterie trio (I was sharing don't judge) and I would recommend all of those things. The staff was ready with recommendations as needed and were on top of it.
Classic french bistro serving excellent basics. Moules are a standout as well as most of the appetizers. We shared the Saumon tartare and the Salade De Roquette, great light lemony dressing.
A special fish entre of Dorado was excellent and the server did a very professional deboneing on request.
We were moving my daughter into Brooklyn and found this bistro in her neighborhood. It was very quite when we went in so we were a bit worried, but everything was absolutely spot on! I hope it was just a quiet evening because the deserve to succeed.
We will definitely become regulars.
