The food was delicious. I got a turkey burger and it was so juicy. The desert was also good and the staff was so nice.

Whenever I meet friends for lunch, Oliver A Bistro is the one place we all love and agree on in an instant! The food is fresh, beautifully presented AND delicious. The service is excellent. If you are in a hurry, you can get in and out in a reasonable amount of time. If you want to linger, you aren't rushed.... More

We had excellent food and service. We ordered from the specials, which were more expensive than the regular menu but the BYOB status kept it affordable. We will certainly go back.

We eat early-around 5 PM - and had excellent service. The food is consistently good, regardless of the dish you order. The only downside is that it is expensive for the area.

A friend recommended this place to us and I have to say they shocked me. When I first walked in and saw the size of the place and the layout I thought "There is no way this is going to be good", Boy was I wrong. This was fantastic and has become our new regular place. In a time and... More

Wow, just wow!! There are no words for how amazing this restaurant is...everything from the atmosphere, to the staff, and most importantly to the food. The mussels are out of this world!! The risotto is to die for. The salads will make you salivate. And the desserts, the desserts are heaven in your mouth.

So glad we finally tried "burger night" here because not only are the burgers some of the best you'll have their soups, sandwiches and other items are really good as well. Service was EXCELLENT! Have been back repeatedly Can't wait to try it on Friday or Saturday night!

If you want a special lunch and happen to be in Bordentown, this is the place to go! The food choices are eclectic but not outrageously priced. The atmosphere is quaint. I hear dinner is also wonderful, but I have not yet had the chance to get there for that.

This is often our anniversary spot and we were not let down again this year! Reservations on a Friday night were necessary as the place is on the small side and gets filled up fast. The Friday/Saturday menu is excellent and they also feature a Friday pre-fixe menu. For $30, I had an excellent caesar salad, an unbelievable mushroom bruschetta,... More
