I found the food very good. For an upscale eatery the menu could have been a little more creative. The service came across a bit condescending but efficient. Overall a very good experience.

Sunday dinner is a deal in every way. Now that Oliver's is offering half price on their wine list on Sunday evenings you can be sure that business has picked up in every way. More importantly, they have staffed up to take care of the increased business and they've done it with outstanding waiters and staff. The kitchen has always... More

My husband and daughter took my mother-in-law and me to Oliver's on Mother's Day. This was not our first time there, and we picked it because it has an established tradition of fine dining in Buffalo. Although we felt our waiter was overly-gregarious and, like a hover craft, spent too much time at our table relating looonngg anecdotes about Boston,... More

Oliver’s Restaurant rescued Mother’s Day dinner for us. Our son had originally made a dinner reservation elsewhere, but when he called to confirm the reservation that afternoon, not only had they no record of the reservation, they were only open for brunch on Sundays! Our son began to contact other restaurants, but all were booked. Fortunately, Oliver’s could accommodate us,... More

f there were 6 stars, that is what I would award Oliver's Over-All performance. We all dined off the Restaurant Week menu and all of us thought the same thing - exceptional. Creative fare, done well, with exceptional service. The exceptional service should be put in bold letters.

We had tickets to see the symphony in Buffalo last evening and made a last minute decision to eat out before. Somewhat of a problem in Buffalo on show night because some restaurants are booked months in advance of a show. We were able to secure a reso at Oliver's, albeit at 5:15. My husband jokingly asked me if I... More

This restaurant has been an institution in Buffalo for many years. Institutions can get stale, but not this one. The menu continues to evolve. We had another fabulous meal there a few nights ago. New items include a great new take on oysters Rockefeller. The sauces were wonderful. There is something for everyone- gourmet takes on food as well as... More

My wife and I are big fans of Oliver's and use it particularly when I get home from one of my frequent long business trips. Friday was such a day and my flight was delayed four hours arriving 1030p at Buffalo. We were delighted to see on their website that they serve dinner until midnight Friday and Saturday. We made...

I love eating at the bar, especially at a nice restaurant because you can often sort of "sneak the line" without reservations. The bar area was very busy when we were there, holiday celebrations gathering before their tables were ready so we were happy to get a seat. The wine by the glass menu is not very long so don't...
