Came here for lunch. We were presented with four menus, so it took some time to decide. Tuna "burger" was cooked perfectly, the fruit soup was creative and the classic tuna melt got the approval of my 95 year old dad. This is out new meeting spot

Based on tripadvisor, we stopped here for dinner while on vacation. We were not disappointed. Food, service, and ambiance was excellent. We ended up ordering too much food because the entries were larger than expected. I will say that the sauce that the scallop special was served in was a little rich for our taste. Most people probably would be... More

My wife and I have eaten at Oliver's for years, and ALWAYS have a great meal. I find excuses to go whenever I can -- meet friends, business meetings, birthdays, anniversaries, or just because. Chef Matt does wonders with fish, and do NOT miss the mushroom bruschetta! Danielle, Matt's wife and hostess is a delight. Classic great service, friendly atmosphere,... More

There were 4 of us for lunch, 3 regular & 1 vegan. They accommodated the vegan friend with her special requests for her sandwich & soup. Three of us had Roasted Potato with Cheddar & Bacon, excellent choice. French Dip Burger, Triple “S” Burger, Chicken Teriyaki Wrap were ordered w/fries. Everyone loved their entree. We haven't been here since 2016.... More

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are Burger nights...a Bordentown MUST. Delicious fresh salads and juicy uniquely topped burgers are the menu - not sure if anything else is even made on these nights. The restaurant does have a full menu on the weekends and we plan to stop back sometime...but will be definitely be back for burgers!

We went there for a couples night out and it was fabulous! No kids menu and no chicken fingers! We had the mussels and Mac n cheese and the special dumpling appetizer - which was all delicious and plenty for 4 to split. The menu selections all looked wonderful, creative, and something you would not expect in the city of... More

Oliver's has been a favorite for quite a while. But the last time I went in I was served a cold burrito after waiting a long time. I told the waitress who said, "There's lettuce on it. It's cold." As she walked away. I was quite disappointed.

We've been to Oliver A Bistro several times over the years and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the service is excellent. We have chosen Oliver's to celebrate our anniversary a number of times. Our favorite spot is the window seat an intimate little corner of the restaurant. Our favorite meal . . . anything you order.

Like most people from Bordentown we don't support the local fare as well as we should. We had dinner with friends from out of town last weekend at Oliver's in downtown Bordentown. All of ordered appetizers (Salads and Mac and Cheese short rib). The salads with goat cheese were as expected but the Mac and cheese was excellent and I'm... More
