Once again, a lovely meal

Although I grew up in Buffalo, it's been years since I've visited this area of the city. Remembering it as a great restaurant from my past, I was excited to go back for the first time last year, when we had a lovely meal.

My husband and I have passed Oliver's many times. One evening, after an afternoon engagement, we were dressed up and out of our usual casual attire. Did not feel like cooking and decided tonight was the night to try this establishment. It will now be a regular on our list. Enter to an elegant atmosphere. Different dining areas.....the feel more... More

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 ;) Service: We were greeted... 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

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
