    Highly recommend the baked brie for an appetizer. I had the boeuf bourguignon. The beef was very tender and the pasta was cooked perfectly.

    Great atmosphere, great service, phenomenal food! The hostess and I believe the owner but unsure, we’re so kind and sweet! Definitely a favorite restaurant around the area.

    Chez Olivia is a taste of Paris in Astoria! This quiet, classy bistro style restaurant made for a lovely dinner. The staff were welcoming, accommodating and very friendly. Our two hour dinner felt like a true European experience - never rushed and plenty of time to savor and enjoy. They offer a classic cocktail list as well as french wines and champagne. Our meal started with delicious baguette and butter, followed by french onion soup (authentic and excellent) and steak tartare. The steak tartare was quality and tasty - but not the best I’ve ever had. We enjoyed the steak frites, served with traditional peppercorn sauce and fresh, crispy fries. The duck leg confit served with fingerling potatoes did not disappoint - rich and flavorful with the moist meat falling off the bone. Couldn’t resist dessert - creme brulee and profiteroles (cream puffs served with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream as the filling). Both were delicious with an incredibly foamy cappuccino. Our wonderful server even brought us two mini glasses of champagne to cap off a lovely meal. Overall, a fantastic experience and a great place for a special occasion meal. We made a reservation on Open Table, however between the inside space and garden area - there were tables open for walk-ins on a Tuesday evening.

    We found Chez Olivia on Eater magazine as a top restaurant to try in 2022. When we arrived, Sam greeted us and showed us to our table. It was the perfect spot, right in the corner next to the window with a street view. Very magical. As soon as we sat down, we started arguing over which bottle of wine to order for the table, and Sam overheard us and brought us two samples of wine without even being asked. We made the perfect selection for the table from his samples and everyone was so happy! For appetizers, we ordered the oysters, the French onion soup, and the pate. Every single dish was delicious. Throughout the evening, Sam made sure that none of our wine glasses were empty. For entrees, we ordered the scallops and the steak frites. Sam must've observed me picking frites off of my colleagues plate, and again, without being asked, he showed up to the table with my own personal side of frites!! Incredible. To top it all off, we ordered three desserts (macaron, molten cake and the profiteroles), but when they got to the table, I accidentally spilled one of our profiteroles on the floor. I cleaned it up with my napkin, but didn't tell Sam, as I didn't want to make a huge deal out of it. That said, Sam came over and took the napkin away, and he must've opened it to see that there was a profiterole inside, and 5 minutes later he showed up at the table with a fresh profiterole to replace the one I had dropped. Just incredible. I've been to many Michelin star restaurants and have never received service like this. Sam made this entire experience so remarkable and I will be recommending Chez Olivia to all of my friends who visit New York City to come! Thank you for such incredible food and service. I won't forget this experience for the rest of my life!

    Lovely neighborhood gem with authentic and delicious French dishes. Enough variety to please picky eaters. Tried the escargot, beef Bourguignon, mussels and profiteroles. Each was perfectly hot and well prepared and presented. Wine selection was very nice and affordable. Gamay went perfectly with everything we had. The servers were all friendly and professional in their care. The owner went around and checked in with everyone. Can’t wait to go back and try more.

    Great French food in a pleasant outdoor patio. The food is flavorful and authentic. Wines are exceptional. Service attentive. Maybe best of all, the prices are really reasonable for French food. Honestly not much more than a hamburger at a bar and grill.

    Olivia exceeded my expectation. I always thought Astoria needed a French restaurant. This Bistro is worth trying. From the Simple Green Salad to the desserts. A must visit. I have already recommended it to my Foodies Friends .

    We are fans of Bistro Eloise, so we were eager to try its sister restaurant. It didn't disappoint! The escargots and pate de campagne were lovely ways to start our meal. He had the branzino, which was perfectly cooked, mild and light. I had the duck confit, which was the best version of this dish I've ever had. We'll be back to explore this menu further.

    My partner and I spend many Wednesday nights looking for new and exciting dining experiences. We occasionally go to the same place more than once but not often. There are so many choices in NYC. Chez Olivia might change that! The escargot - my favorite - ranked right up with the best we've had. The duck leg confit was perfectly cooked and the serving size was sufficient. My partner's branzino was delicious and seasoned just right so that the taste of the fish was not overpowered by it. We didn't get dessert - next time we will - but I would have opted for the lemon tart or profiteroles - and look forward to our next visit!

    What a great dinner we had…the food was excellent and everyone was happy. If you like escargot order them you won’t be disappointed. The scallops, muscles and steak dinner were also a crowd pleaser.

    Really enjoyed our dinner here. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. Calamari was excellent, along with the Brie Cheese Pastry. The duck confit was great right down to the fingerling potato’s which were so soft and tasty. Would reccomend!

    The food and service was absolutely great. Everything was delicious and unique and the service was outstanding. The only thing was the backyard area seems to amplify sound, so with everyone talking and trying to be heard, it was a little hard to converse without yelling. Maybe when they've been in business for a while they can install some sound-absorbing wall and ceiling treatments. Then it would be perfect.

    Enjoyed a quiet dinner of pate de campagne, beef Bohrung on and profiteroles along with a glass of Malbec. Nice neighborhood restaurant and a welcome addition to a neighborhood lacking French restaurants. Food portions were generous and the quality of the food was very good. It was a perfect evening to sit outside in their back space. The entrance to the restaurant is a bit narrow and might be a challenge for those with mobility issues. Service was on point and the prices were very fair given the quality of the food. I would definitely return for dinner and would be inclined to eat there for brunch, as well.

    Great time at this new location! The staff was so accommodating especially since it was the first 90+ degree day of the year and we decided to sit outside! Food was delicious and I’m so happy they’re in the neighborhood!
