L'Olivier is closing its door on August 29, 2020


It is with a heavy heart, that we have come to the decision to shut down by the end of August. It has been a great adventure filled with beautiful encounters and friendships. Chef Xavier and I are proud of these past seven years as we worked hard to serve you and to share our French culture. It just has been too much of a challenge to stay open with only the patio.

Thank you for your continuous support for 7 years!




Fine French food in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Located in downtown Santa Fe, Restaurant L’Olivier, is owned and operated by two native French, Chef Xavier Grenet and Nathalie Bonnard-Grenet, who share a desire for sustainability which has emerged with their efforts to present traditional French food using locally sourced, organic ingredients and blending the flavors of the Southwest into French classics.

Restaurant L’Olivier is a place where everyone loves to dine and a must for “foodies.” You can select from the
Full Dinner Menu or enjoy one of the Weekly Specials, like the Prix Fixe Dinners on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The Wine List offers an array of amazing wines, and wine dinners are a great way to enjoy superb food and perfectly paired wines. Chef Xavier’s Holiday and Special Menus are culinary masterpieces.
