My husband and I stopped in for a bit of lunch. He had a club sandwich which he said was fantastic. I had the chicken breast. Due to the menus focus on their chicken I figured it must be something special. I was wrong. The breast was dry and under spiced. The greek salad while very tasty was soo cold... More

Visited once and won't return. Nice building inside and out but the menu is not up to scratch with regards to choice and the ale is nothing to write home about. Ordered a starter and drinks and decided not to go any further. Lots of changes required in order for this place to work.

We visited the bistro during our winter's stay in Osoyoos and it was worth the short drive to Oliver. They certainly know how to prepare fish and chips and as an ex-Brit I know how it should be served. The batter was thin and crisp with a hint of beer. Of course they had malt vinegar the only accompaniment that... More

I know it's not about the building, but this restaurant has one of the coolest buildings I have been in for a restaurant. The food was exceptional, especially for a small town restaurant. I had the ribs for one meal and the second day in the restaurant at the spicy chicken sandwich. Both were excellent and everyone at our table... More

Oliver needs a real good restaurant. This isn't it but has potential. In all fairness the Firehall Bistro has new owners, so will give it another try to see if they improve. The tomato soup was interesting. Tasted more like a spicy carrot soup and was fairly good. the salad was good but the battered fish was bland served without... More

My first time to this restaurant, I was sure it would be perfect for Oliver. My second time, i realized how limited the menu was, so I had the calamari, for the second time. DH had lasagna, which seemed like a winner. We weren't too pleased with the service but thought it would still be ok. Last night we went... More

The last time. I was there I ordered the potato skins and chicken wings. The potato skins were not available because they are "brought in" and the order wasn't in yet, the waitress told us. The chicken wings were awful and tasted 5 days old. (which were $13 or so, so should at least be cooked fresh!) I did complain... More

Hamburger was ok, nothing out of the ordinary - average. Not sure if patties are homemade or fresh. Chicken burger was described as dry, as Chicken was cut up into strips and put on burger. Chicken would have been more juicy if left as a whole breast.
