Description: From the time Frank Oliver built the restaurant in 1936, the diners and food-lovers of Buffalo have returned time and time again for exceptional quality and service. The decades in-between saw ownership changes, new traditions and renovations to expand our landmark space on Delaware Avenue in Buffalo.

My wife and I are near the end of our vacation. Wanted a fine dining experience to end it on a good note. Couldn't be more pleased with our choice. From the complementary valet, great martini, lobster salad, perfect filet mignon, through the cheery tort dessert, everything was perfect.

Oliver's has been the source of some of the best chefs who went off to create their own restaurants here in Buffalo but Oliver's always seems to bring in another set of trainees who are just as wonderful and keep the menu exciting and delicious without being cutesy. Also the finest caterer in town.

The food will never fail you here. The drinks are perfect, the atmosphere is special but welcoming. All the food is delicious and the spiniach bread will leave you wanting more. This is Old school special dinner with a contempory twist. One of my top two!
