Still my go to place on the beach

Not fancy or unusual but everything they serve is excellent. Of course the weekend brunch is special but I have been frequenting Oliver's for lunch as well and I can highly recommend it. It was and continues to be my go to place, as their prices are very acceptable for the beach.

I enjoyed the food. So this review is not of the food but of our Waitress. Worst expereince ever. I have had bad waitresses. She was baaaaad. Not only did it take her forever to even offer us drinks (which she never did and someone else did) but we had to practicially beg for drink refills, she was pretty much... More

I had the beef burger with fries and it was perfect, girlfriend enjoyed the hummus platter. We had water and the bill was $25. Service was very good too. Close to the Mondrian Hotel.

This is one of my favorite places for breakfast/brunch in south beach. It is located on West Ave and tucked away from most tourists. Great food, great service!!

My husband and I came here by a recommendation from a local. We were very pleased with the atmosphere, food choices, and the service. We enjoyed a nice cobb salad, lobster ravioli's, and the lavender crème brulee, which of course was accompanied by wine with dinner and a nice port with dessert. The selections on the menu were great. Thank... More

Great food, good service and the atmosphere is on point. The place is always packed and clean. The food is fresh and flavorful. Service is good so don't let up on the guest service. It would get 5 stars with just a little more relaxed staff. I know it is never easy. Kudos to them.

We have been to Oliver's Bistro a number of times as it is my sister-in-law's favorite restaurant. I have had a number of entrees there and the food is always good, fresh and tasty. It is, as one other reviewer said, a reliable but not inspiring restaurant. I have always been pleasantly surprise by the freshness and presentation of the... More

An omelette should not be hard to do for any restaurant. It should not be brown unless asked for we'll done. This happens often and not just Oliver's. Service always good love sitting outside even though it's a busy street. Get a chef or cook who knows to or wants to learn to cook a decent omelet.

Located on West Avenue, in a somewhat uninspiring row of business premises, Oliver's Bistro is the one bright spark and, whilst not exciting, can always be relied upon to provide good quality food, with first class service. A venue that is ideal for regular good value meals but not, necessarily, for that 'special occasion'

Our Hotel - The Mondarin - recommended Oliver's Bistro to us, and well it's just fabulous. Whilst in Miami we ate here on three separate occasions, the food was fabulous, the choice of wine excellent, and the atomsphere lovely and relaxed. It's an absolute delightful place and I would recommend anyone visiting South Beach Miami to dine at Oliver's Bistro.... More
