Love this place. The food is always amazing and the people are just as amazing!! Prices are not bad for what you are getting. Good homemade food like I was cooking at home without making the mess!!

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

Visited this delightful restaurant ( about a 45 minute drive from home ) and was very impressed with the novel way they approach the diners. Different menus on different days, burgers to sophisticated entrees and a warm, small-town atmosphere. My wife's veggie burger was " the best she has had for ages " and my chicken dish was tasty and... More

I had a wonderful crab cake croissant sandwich for lunch, while my friend had gazpacho soup and a sandwich for her meal. Service was very good, and even though the restaurant got busier during the lunch hour, we were not rushed. It was obvious that this is a very popular place among the locals as many people coming and going... More

Oliver's is one of my favorites. It is always exciting to eat at Oliviers because you never know what is new on the menu. The soups are out of this world! Everything is prepared as if you were going to rate them. Great lunch get-away...your see!

We have been to Olivers several times over the past few months. We love the food and their prices. We have also gotten catering from them twice over the past 3 months.

Oliver's is part of the reinvention of Bordentown, NJ as a food destination. Tuesday through Thursday, there is a gourmet burger menu with additional options. The prices are reasonable and the burgers imaginative. On weekends, a fine dining menu is available. Regardless of the day you dine, the truffled mushroom bruschetta is insanely good. The restaurant is BYOB and that... More
