We hosted a large family dinner here recently, and Oliver's remains a fabulous place for wonderful food and service in the Buffalo area. After a recent sale/change in ownership and leadership, things seemed to slip a bit, and we hadn't been there for quite a while; from my vantage, though, Oliver's is back. We had a hard of hearing member... More

Invited to a Wednesday night pre-Christmas "spend the expense account" dinner at Oliver's. Started with valet parking (in a snow storm they even clean your windows before handing back the keys) had some of their house cocktails (gin with cucumber) and moved into the appetizer course - there were five of us -- we had the FRESH BURRATA, CHARCUTERIE, CHEESE...

Upscale restaurant in Buffalo,I felt like I was in New York City.... Food is wonderful and wait staff very pleasant and the ambiance was splendid! I would definitely recommend Oliver's if you are looking to have a total dining experience.

For decades Oliver’s has meant the cutting edge of contemporary cuisine, only the freshest ingredients and impeccable service in a beautifully appointed room. But after an ownership change, matters here have gotten a little spotty. At times wonderful meals appear; at other times the fare can be disappointing. And some of the gorgeous art work that graced the dining room... More

My husband and I hosted 80 friends and family for dinner @ Oliver's ! Service, food and drinks were divine as usual. Many thanks to charming owner Dave Shute for helping us donate to the worthy AIDS/HIV cause in WNY ! See you all next year, same place !

I had the pleasure of joining a friend for dinner and we chose Oliver's. Hadn't been there in quite some time. As usual, the service was outstanding. The menu looked so good it was hard to make a choice. My friend went with the Scallops with all the trimmings and I had a Filet. We started with a chilled wine,... More

Was here on a Wednesday night for a company gathering, we had about 12 of us in our group. Service was spot on with no lull in the attention to our group. Server knew the menu well and offered some solid suggestions and was very flexible on the dishes, preparation and sides. Food was very good, as it should be... More
