We visited Oliver's a few weeks ago and had a very pleasant experience. We made a reservation and we're glad we did - the restaurant isn't really big and filled up quickly. Our server was pleasant and efficient. We had cod tongues as an appetizer - be prepared for a taste like calamari but a very chewy texture. I had bourbon glazed chicken breast and my husband had cod. Both dishes were delicious - they arrived nice and hot, the chicken in particular was a very generous portion, with a nice variety of fresh veggies. Dessert was coconut molasses bread pudding - yummy. All in all a lovely experience.

I ate at Oliver's Restaurant yesterday evening, and had one of the best meals EVER! The food was incredible, and the service was spot on. I absolutely loved everything about the experience, and will definitely be heading back soon. Try this place - it won't disappoint!

We made a reservation to meet some friends for dinner after work last night - what a wonderful evening! Our server made thoughtful suggestions and was attentive to every detail! From the fresh scallops, to the balsamic chicken with fresh pasta, to the house-made bread and desserts, everything was delicious! We were surprised to see how many people they had to turn away - busy spot even on a wednesday night - highly recommend making reservations! Great spot for locals and tourists alike. :)

Awesome meal at Olivers last night. We requested that the Chef prepare us a 5 course tasting/surprise menu and they delivered. What a treat.

The experience for us was wonderful. The manager and staff were very accommodating with us having an extra guest and our server was very friendly. The staff seemed to work as a great team and the food, well the food was absolutely stunning! Steak, seafood, salad, you name it. Yummm yummm yum! I can't wait to go back!
