We went there the Saturday before Mother's Day with my inlaws. The service was great! Thank you Bruce and Hannah! The appetizers and soups came right out. We all had specials and each one was made with social care. Great flavor and presentation.

This place is a hidden gem among a row of restaurants and colonial homes. Fantastic, inventive and great tasting food; attentive service; quality all around. The food really is the star at this place and continues the tradition of farm to table done well by a Chef that can cook and blend flavors. This place has it all in every... More

Located in Bordentown, NJ, where parking is typically hard to find and the small restaurant has no parking lot. We ate with friends and, fortunately, arrived early because we did not have a reservation. A useful tip, therefore, is to make a reservation (at least on a weekend night) as the place filled up fast. The restaurant is BYOB and... More

Oliver's was a very pleasant surprise yesterday. We were there for a family event. The restaurant is quaint and homey as well as service that is truly professional and outstanding, Phillip was the key to the success of this event. The food was excellent, I had one of their house specialties a crusted Chicken dish, with risotto, it was outstanding.... More

Enjoyed a very nice meal of 6 Oysters on a Half Shell with Orange Mignonette and then tasty shrimp skewers with tropical sauce and rice. Wonderful flavors and all Gluten-Free! Very nice server by the name of John was attentive to my dietary problems and very friendly. A real pleasure to dine here. Would be happy to go back!

It's not a bad restaurant. I do like the Matt's Big Buritos that they offer, but it's a strange atmosphere. Not geared toward children. There is only 1 highchair and if it's in use, you're SOL. Pricey also for what you get.

We ate lunch with a friend at Oliver's Bistro and had a great meal. The food was very good and the service excellent. Although quite busy we were able to chat easily.

My pal and I have visited Oliver's often but last evening we picked the perfect evening to introduce my son to dining at this venue. In addition to the regular menu there was a prix fixe menu from which we all made our selection. This included a soup or salad starter, an appetizer and an entree. All were excellent in... More

We live locally, but haven't dined here for dinner in several years. Our friends made reservations for 7:45pm on a recent Saturday , and we entered the restaurant to a packed house. I thought the food may not be up to par when trying to accommodate so many patrons, but I'm glad to say I was wrong. My husband and... More
