“Excellent food...pricey”
Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

I went on a busy Saturday night and the ambiance was quite enjoyable and the service very good.

Caesar salad is a must have. I love made from scratch Caesar and it did not disappoint. My wife had the tenderloin steak which had nice flavour and texture and you could cut it with a fork...excellent. I had the rack of lamb...again, outstanding.

For all of this excellent food and some drinks be prepared to shell a couple hundred bucks...bit a great experience!

“my all time fave”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

i have eaten here for several years and it is bar none the best. the food is perfect each time, there is a small menu but suits many tatstes, there is an open area or a private goup area in the far back with it's own bar; there is an in between seating area that is private yet small. the service is impeccable and quite formal. you are remembered and every effort made to see to your happiness and contentment. it has an old world/europe charm to it. it is elegant without pretense. reservations req'd. i loike my meat well done and it is the only restaurant i have ever been to where i have not sent the meat back- not once. it is done properly every time, without the lectures, and comes juicy each time. it is class personified.

“The Best There Is”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I’ve lived in Oakville for 40 years and my very favourite restaurant there has always been Olivers of Oakville. Olivers is the restaurant you and your friends and family go to for that special night out. Great service, where the waiters remember your name, an extensive menu expertly prepared with an emphasis on fresh, all in a very comfortable setting. But this summer Olivers renovated the restaurant giving it an uplifting open feeling and introduced a new light menu to compliment the traditional menu of favourites. On a recent visit I started with tasty heirloom tomatoes fresh from the owner’s garden and finished with a fine steak tartare. Others had salmon, schnitzel, and steak – all thoroughly enjoyed. Olivers has a new private dining area and is now open for lunch.

“Great Re-do”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

A delightful dinner at Oliver's....completely refurbished. Attractive and bright. the menu is the best I have seen in years, with two price points. My two complaints are 1) it is noisy
2) the staff the staff harkens back to the stuffy days, when with the new decor and menu, the restaurant should be welcoming, friendly and fun.

Get rid of the stodginess!

“excellent restaurant, high prices”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

this restaurant was fantastic, the atmosphere is rather unique, dim lights, very fancy. the food was also delicious, however, the prices we thought were very high. at the end of the night, though the prices were high, we at least left satisfied because we really enjoyed the dishes. service is very attentive and lovely.
