Enjoyed the whole experience of Oliver's. Only problem was that the appetizers were very pricey for the little amount you received. Main meal was very salty for my taste.

Great atmosphere - Nice, quiet and intimate. The food, as usual was fantastic. The server was very friendly and attentive. The Newfoundland Berry Cheesecake is to die for. Great place for couples to enjoy a nice meal. It is my favorite place to eat in St. John's.

I previously reviewed Oliver's after visiting it a number of times and noted that the quality of their food and service had gone downhill....I am excited to say that since then friend's of ours wanted to go there when heading out to brunch and it was delicious. After 2-3 visits since then the quality of their food seems to be great and consistent. The bread that they serve with brunch is probably the best I have had out in a restaurant, their fish cakes were a decent size and cooked perfectly (not deep fried like other places), they serve fresh fruit with some of the menu items, and overall we have enjoyed every meal we have had there recently.
The servers we had were all very friendly, which makes the meal all the better - though some that we had were more attentive than others.
Overall, I am so glad that the restaurant seems to have returned to serving delicious, quality meals. It is now one of our most favorite places to go.
Though I would recommend calling ahead for a reservation or to make sure they are not full as it is a busy spot and seating is limited.

Had a work lunch here recently- really enjoyed the food I ordered, and the food ordered by colleagues looked great as well! I had the seafood chowder and pan fried cod. Looking forward to coming back with my husband so we can enjoy dinner or lunch with a nice wine selection as the wine list looks great. But of course, I wouldn't pass up another business lunch here either!
