We ate at Olivia...it was FANTASTIC! I dont think I've ever been in a restruant with more ambiance(sp)! What a beautiful little candlelit garden. Awesome meal and great service... Even hubby Mark loved his steak kabob and he really doesnt care for mediteranian food! I had the mixed plate with hummus, chicken kabob (which was a little perfume like), a ground beef kabob, another hummous type sauce. I requested a little tabuli salad and they complied (delish) and the homemade parmesian loaf of bread is not to be missed. Mark requested some olive oil to dip and they brought some real olive juice/oil It was amazing! The coffee is super strong! The ice teas (5 kinds) are homemade and delicious (we had Earl Grey)!
Also ate at Lolo Lorena... GREAT experience, had baby scallops (and I do mean baby) followed by some coleslaw with the secret ingredient of jelly fish, next was mushroom soup with 36 month old truffle oil (HEAVENLY). Main course was either a shepards pie or a seafood casselette (sp). My seafood casselette was good, Mark said the Shepards Pie was not the best he's had. Because Lorena is leaving town, she booked everyone for Thursday, there were supposed to be 20, but ended up being 22. Apparently she cancelled our reservation when another Mark and Colleen called in a reservation for 8. It coincidently was the Mark and Colleen from British Columbia that also read and post on this forum...WHAT A SMALL WORLD!
The company at the dinner were all wonderful people from every corner of the world! Lolo is very accomodating of Celiac, allergies, diabetes, etc which is very nice and she doesnt allow it to affect the rest of the diner's meals- ie she makes a special dish for those afflicted!
