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

I just had the most incredibly satisfying meal ever at Oliver's Resturuant. I work at a hotel in downtown Buffalo, and I'm always recommending some of my favorites for the guest. Oliver's will definitley be on that list. The staff was wonderful and the food was amazing! The ambiance is nothi g less than regal.

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 Our son had originally made a dinner reservation elsewhere, but when he called to confirm the reservation that afternoon, not only had they no record of the reservation, they were only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
