Out on a Thursday night is not something my husband and I do routinely,however this past Thursday we had dinner with my brother and sister-in-law. I wanted some place small and some place my sister-in-law hadn't been to. Olivers was the perfect place and on top of it was a BYOB. It was freezing that night but so cozy when... More

Was the food good? Yes it was. What made it even better though we're the smiles and the friendliness of those waiting on me. The scallops in corn sauce were a worthwhile choice as entrée (although it would be good to know the prices of the specials at the outset, so to avoid surprises with the check) as well as... More

When I usually think of a restaurant in Bordentown I think of a massive 24/7 diner or maybe a truckstop. Little did I know of the quaint old main street of Farnsworth Avenue and the selection of nice eateries. Oliver A Bistro, stood out as a simple store front with a handful of tables. The menu is a little bit... More

My husband and I enjoy Oliver's for our special occasions. We love the risotto and baked potato soup. Service is always good.

Had lunch here. There isn't a set menu, rather organic choices and very expensive. Portions are a bit small also for the price charged. We won't be going back but you can go and make your own decision. It might differ.

This was the second time I have been to this restaurant. The first time wasn't extremely notable. I had noticed it took a little longer than typical to get our food and to pay the bill, but it wasn't so terrible that I felt the need to write a bad review. Today, however, it was that terrible. This makes me... More

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.
