TESTIMONIALS

“Just wanted to thank you for a delicious lunch.  It was the first time my four siblings (and spouses) and my husband and I were able to meet since before COVID.  Kingston is a central location for us all and I am very glad we chose your restaurant.  The server was excellent, the food great and you even managed to seat us at an out of the way table.  I am sure we will return.  Thanks again.”

“We’ve been very impressed with your efforts throughout the pandemic … weekly dinners for two, ready-made options, accompanying wine at reasonable prices, etc., etc.  Well done!

Receiving a thank-you message the day after having a lovely indoor lunch is icing on the cake.  You guys are amazing and we wish you every possible success.”

“Had a private function on Oct. 03/2021. The food was delicious. The only thing better than the food was the service. I have to say Outstanding! The whole staff was so accommodating that my wife and I, who held the event, were just so pleased. In particular, I must say that the hostess and waitress at the event were amazing. The people who own the place are real lucky to have them. In fact their espresso machine was not working. They went to the place next door to fetch my father his espresso. Thank you to everyone at Olivea. A must if your in Kingston. Just wonderful!”

“As an American in New York, not too far away from Kingston, ON, Canada, I always make a stop here. The food is insanely amazing. There is literally something for everyone! I can’t recommend this establishment enough. Kudos on all your exquisite dishes!”

“We made reservations to this restaurant on the spur of the moment and this was the best experience. From the ease of booking a reservation (we did this online… even had to modify the reservations… super easy to use). Locations is fabulous. From the welcome at the door, to the service during our meal. Even the COVID protocols were specific and followed through. The food… OMG… absolutely amazing. I you ever find yourself in Kingston, you have to try this place.”

“Our dinner was absolutely delicious, and our server was top notch. She was very accommodating and if she didn’t know if something could be changed on the menu, she quickly found out. On our next visit we will definitely make Olivea a first stop!”
