“Little Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We were tired of the overpriced and bad restaurants in the popular area of South Beach, so we Google and Oliver's Bistro came up.
Nice residential area where the people are friendly and chatted with us Foreigners. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. No need to repeat all the comments about the kitchen. We Agree!
And it is a lot more friendly to your wallet as well......! Enjoy.

“DiversifIed Menu and Amazing French Toast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

I almost wish we had waited until lunch to eat t Oliver's given how awesome the menu is. The French toast is to die for ... with an incredible presentation which included a flavorful drizzle of some type of fruit syrup and vanilla on the plate.... Incredibly good. The eggs Benedict also very tasty and my eggs poached just right. Nice outdoor patio dining and a perfect breakfast stop!

“Great menu, nice surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

This place is away from Ocean Drive on West Ave. Mostly locals go here. The menu is varied with lots to choose from. Can't go wrong here.

“Disappointed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012 via mobile

As a local I have eaten at Olivers on many occasions. The menu is varied, prices reasonable and service is excellent. I have always received a friendly greeting on entering the restaurant that is until yesterday. The host was more concerned about his i-phone than seating us. Even after he finished texting or whatever he still ignored us. Will think twice before taking guests there again.

“Back in Miami=back at Oliver's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I always look forward to coming to Oliver's, as soon as I land in Miami. The salmon eggs benedict for brunch, or one of the fresh fab salads ( Greek salad with grilled calamari and the nicoise with fresh grilled tuna are my favorites). But every time I've been here, with friends, they all rave, and cannot wait to come back. Every time! Unassuming cozy restaurant on 9th and West avenue, has been the to-go place anytime we want to avoid the crowds on Lincoln Road for something more low- key but consistently good. The service is always friendly and makes Oliver's feel like your favorite neighborhood joint, even if you're not from this neighborhood.
