“Consistently Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Consistency in the restaurant business is very difficult. How this restaurant does it is amazing. The high quality of food and service is always excellent. They do change their menu but never sacrifice quality and service.

This restaurant has a long-standing tradition of excellence in both ingredients and preparation with true devotion to seasonal materials. It readily handles groups of eight (our attendance) with proficient timing and attention.

“Elegant Italian influenced dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Good environment for business or intimate conversation. Oliver's has a long, successful track-record for fine dining and did not disappoint on the most recent visit. The food was the best part of this experience, which is probably as it should be. This is in the top echelon of Buffalo restaurants.
