Great atmosphere

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

My husband and I ate breakfast at Oliver's 3 mornings out of 5 during our recent visit to Miami Beach. The food was delicious, easy, and reasonably priced. A bonus was being able to sit outside on a covered patio and watch passerby while we ate.

Had a delightful lunch under an umbrella as the floods descended upon us, but we were kept dry. Food was good, service was great. Recommend when you have an emergency!

This is a happy place, with a nice outdoor patio that is perfect for al fresco dining. The food is simple and well prepared. The staff is warm and welcoming. The brunch is casual and moderately priced. A good neighborhood gem.

I loved this place, it felt positively European to me: No overly attentive waitress, good, really good food, good coffee and instead of bringing me the check after I finished (and thereby basically telling me to go) she asks if I want some more water. Smart move, because I decided to enjoy another espresso. Just 1 TV (none would be... More
