Excellent! Impromptu Dinner turns into Lovely Evening

After a business meeting, two others and I went to Oliver's (without reservations - NOT recommended!) on a Tuesday evening. When we entered the restaurant we noticed the bar was full but not crowded. Had we not been there for dinner it looked like a nice place to enjoy friends and a drink or two... read more

Everything about this restaurant was wonderful. The decor inside is elegant. The service was top notch. I had the Rigatoni Pasta Bolognese ($24) which sounds boring but was anything but! It was braised veal, pork and beef in a red wind reduction with fresh herbs and was so delicious! As was the spinach bread. A house specialty that you have... More

One of our most faved places to dine. Try the baby octopus, yum and the portion is fare. Service is polite and professional wanting you dining experience to be memorable and lasting. Not a fan of the parking arrangement, valet yuck.

This restaurant has a lovely upscale feel which is undercut by the tiny black flies which have to be waved away from your food while you're eating. We had three courses, and between each one the waiter attempted to take our forks. The first time he was unsuccessful in retrieving mine, but made off with the one belonging to my... More

We arrived at the restaurant and were told that our table was ready or we could enjoy a beverage at the bar which we did. As it turned out, our table was located just a few feet from the bar. Although an interesting location we wished it were located where we could hold a more quiet conversation. When our server... More

We had a party of seven for my draughts UB graduation, the staff was great and Charles our waiter was the best, the wine specials were great, was able to purchase wines we would have never paid for with out a 50% discount, my duck was cooked to perfection along with all the others. Highly recommend Oliver's. Don't bring small... More

My Wife and I dined at Oliver's for the first time and we absolutely loved it. Our server was Charlie who was one of the best server we've ever had. He was engaging without being intrusive, knowledgeable, and friendly. Next time we go back, we will ask for Charlie specifically - he is that good! This part of the review... More

I am a local and have had a few dinners at Olivers in the past year for special occasions for family and friends, and have never been disappointed. Everyone from Dave, to the bartenders, to the servers, have been nothing but accommodating and professional. The private room was used for my mom's 90th bday celebration and all of my out... More

The dinner, extensive and impressive wine list, the service from the minute you enter the restaurant, you are warmly greeted to a Epicuran delight served by gracious staff! A must dining experience!
