Deirdre D. Houston TX
"I had the gnocchi, my mom had the surf & swine, my aunt had the sea bass and my niece had the steak & frites.  The gnocchi was with grilled heirloom cherry tomatoes, several different kinds of mushrooms, pickled red onion and cotija cheese.  It was amazing."

Nick V. Bristol, CT
"A perfect bistro. While there may be more interesting dishes here and there in Austin, Olivia shines because of its consistency.  Standouts:  surf and swine entree with charred octopus and pork belly, roasted sweetbread app with mushroom-fig purée and onion demiglace, roasted beet salad with smoked oysters and, of course, their awesome duck egg creme brûlée."

Be sure and check the menu for changes.

Sera O. Austin, Texas
"I had a breakfast platter with eggs, waffles, maple brown sugar butter, and sausage. My company had no-bean chili with a kick ass jalapeno cornbread. My waffles were fluffy, crispy, and melty in the inside. The chili was bomb and the cornbread was an absolute winner."

What people on the internet are saying

Colin D. Austin, TX
"The food is good. I'd put the "Cobra" and "The Ends" burgers near the top of my list for Austin burgers and the fries are great. I've also had the chili and it's much better than you'd expect from bar food."
