Excellent always ! In my opinion this is the best in Buffalo for every reason. Food, service, atmosphere Accessibility. If you are visiting Buffalo, you must make a reservation at Olivers. Chef Warhol is always spot on!

My issue was the bar-very loud esp one of the bartenders whose booming voice was irritating.. We were seated near the bar area and... More

Absolutely love Oliver's! My husband and I make a point of visiting whenever we are in Buffalo. This is a fabulous restaurant and bar, well loved by the locals and one of our bars of choice to catch up with friends and family when we are in town. Patrons have a choice of fine dining in the restaurant or enjoying... More

We held our annual Cousin's Club Luncheon at Oliver's again this year. We ladies who lunch can always rely on great food, service and ambiance at Oliver's Restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised to be seated in their coveted Chef's Table room where our waiter Derrick expertly served us. We ranged in age from 2 to 72 and the youngest were... More

Returned here this month upon hearing of new chef and decor. The restaurant is clearly brightened up from it's earlier 60s look. Very comfortable.Service was excellent as expected here. Main courses were very good, Osso Buco and Halibut. Osso Buco was splendid, but as I'm finding in many restaurants of late, slightly overdone. Just enough to take away the flakiness... More

From the valet, coat check, host, and wait stall all were what I expect from Olliver's. Their menu is sufficient with added specials. Drinks were well done, split green salad and to die foe Cotuit oysters, with superb rack of lamb. The lobster & scallop entree was disappointing - the tail was slightly overcooked. Coffees and Creme Brûlée topped of... More

It's been several years since we had dinner at Oliver's, which recently added a new Executive Chef, and earned a 10 out of 10 rating from the restaurant critic of the Buffalo News. Our meal was wonderful, with the level of service you would expect from a high end restaurant. Expensive, but worth while.

This is the best restaurant I have been to in Buffalo. I am basing this review on sampling a few items on the menu, couldn't eat everything! Here is what we had, and left us groaning from the deliciousness. Seriously, nothing in this town is prepared with this level of skill and creativeness. And I love ordinary food! But what... More

Olivers used to be one of the classiest restaurants in town. It has gone down since the new owners. Still have live music, the dining areas are very noisy, the bar is very active. The two bartenders are very friendly, they make a great cocktail and they are very entertaining. We enjoy eating at the bar and did so this... More
