On our first evening in Walt Disney World, we chose to eat at Olivia’s. One word of caution: if you are trying to get from one Disney resort to another (as we were – from Pop Century to the Old Key West resort), plan ahead! Transportation from one resort to another is via Downtown Disney. Our reservations were for 6:10pm and we left Pop Century at about 4:30 to get there on time.
Once we arrived, it was obvious the decor inside of Olivia's was in keeping with the Old Key West theme. Colors are predominantly pastel (think calming or relaxing), with some nice nautical touches, like fishing nets. There were also photos all over the walls of families who had visited the restaurant - neat! I ordered a Caesar salad for an appetizer, filet mignon with seasonal vegetables (squash) and garlic mashed potatoes, and a key-lime tart for dessert. My son ordered a hot dog with French fries. We also received some warm dinner rolls (four total), two of which my son devoured. My food was cooked to my specifications and tasted great. I especially enjoyed the key-lime tart, as it was presented with a nice vanilla and raspberry sauce. If I had to pick one area in need of improvement, it would be the service - it was surly at the beginning and gradually made its way to being pleasant by the end of the meal. Perhaps it was because the restaurant was quite busy.
Overall, the menu was fairly diverse. Please see the external link below for an example of the dinner menu (potentially outdated).
