What's not to love about Oliver's? This place has a lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, and the food is outstanding. I have tried most of the menu and have never been disappointed! The bourbon chicken with creamy risotto is my usual go-to, but last night my boyfriend and i both tried the beef tenderloin.... Oh my goodness, was it ever delicious.... More

We've been to Oliver's several times for brunch and supper and each experience was lovely! The decor in this restaurant is elegant yet comfortable. The servers are charming and efficient. Oliver's offers a few unique takes on the standard brunch menu including a delicious goat cheese eggs benedict. But they also feature non-traditional brunch items like a lamb burger. The... More

I had the best meal I have every had at a restaurant last night. We both ordered from the V-Day Menu. I had the pan roasted cod, baby shrimp, cajun sauce and garlic whipped potatoes and my fiancé had the chicken picatta and basmati rice pilaf. We were both blown away at how good the food was!! Appetizers and desserts... More

This was my first trip to Oliver's. I will definitely be back. I ordered the beef tenderloin and it did not disappoint. The beef was tender and the sauce was very flavorful. This was easily the best meal I have ever had. My husband had the lamb and it was just as delicious. The service was also wonderful. I can't... More

After trying most restaurants in St. John's, Oliver's still stands out as a memorable and exquisite dining experience. Amazing ambiance, great selection of wines and fantastic food (Especially the Lamb / Tenderloin ) If you're a local or tourist and you haven't tried this place, check it out! Highly recommended

We live in Alberta and this is our third visit to Oliver's. We walked into another restaurant we'd made reservations for and it was loud, open, and cold-feeling. We looked at each other and both decided we'd try for a table at Oliver's. Even though it was Wednesday, we were lucky to get a table; there were quite a few... More
