    Opentable diners, you really need to try this restaurant. It has wonderful romantic seating in the cabanas around the pool. Reserve early and ask for one of these tables. Last night I reserved too late to get a a cabana but we did get to sit poolside. "Hotel restaurant food???", you say. I say, give it a try, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Our waiter, Firenze, is very knowledgeable about the wines (extensive wine list for this small hotel) AND the menu. Menu is smallish, but the food is delicious. We'll be back here, again and again.

    Oliverio is a terrific restaurant but few seem to know about it. I have been here at least five times and it always performs very well. The tables by the pool are well spaced, and the cabanas are perfect for more privacy. The food is excellent, drinks big, and price right. it should be a happening place but this hasn't happened yet. I continue to tell my friends to dine here and it is certainly on my list of where to dine in LA.

    Retro, cool and very blue. A perfectly charming spot inside the Avalon Hotel on the otherwise unassuming and residential corner of Olympic and S. Canon Dr. in Beverly Hills. It's a very "Mad Men" early '60s vibe...in a good way. Dine poolside or grab your own private cabana (if available). Sure you could head to the usual Bev Hills hot spots on Beverly Drive or N. Canon...but it's more fun (and attitude-free) here.

    Menu is fine ... not that creative and trying too hard for what it does do. Ordered the turkey burger which was too fancy for its own good but fine. Good for local work lunches. Setting is great and vibe is great. Staff friendly. If they ever revamped the menu it could be fantastic.

    The atmosphere was so special - it reminded me of having brunch in my own backyard. And the food was very good, and presented quite nicely. The only drawback was that the overhead heater kept going on and we would get too warm. In fact, we could tell the waiter was tired of us constantly begging him to have it turned off. But other than that - it was an A+.

    The food here from Milanese chef Mirko Paderno is innovative and outstanding, the wine list very good, the service excellent, the poolside terrace lovely, and the noise level low to medium, all in the airy modern setting of the Avalon Hotel. One of the best Italian restaurants in Los Angeles, and reasonably priced, especially for the quality.

    I stumbled upon this gem while looking for a quiet place to dine with out of town guests. We enjoyed a table in one of the poolside cabanas. Our waiter was terrific- he is from Hungary, I'm sorry I can't remember his name. He recommended a wine by the glass, allowed me to taste it first! and we ordered a bottle. My fancy guests loved it and the spot. Food was delicious. the wine was Ca' De' Rocchi Montere'.

    Recently got invited to dine here with a group a friends. Usually I dont like hotel restaurants, but this was truly a GEM. (Ambience) First of all, we dined outside in a private cabana by the pool, very private, but with a view around the pool and othe tables... The ambience is very cool, mid-century mod sheek, and feels like you are dining in someones upscale home. Food was great, and they gave very decent portions (Try the cauliflower soufle) . Service was great and friendly and decent wine list. Will definitely go again, great for groups as well as romantic dates next to the pool!

    When we walked in at 7:30 on a Saturday evening, the restaurant was only about 10% full, which led to the thought "what is wrong?". Fortunately, our fears were allayed by being seated in a luxurious poolside private cabana, having expert, unobtrusive but helpful service, and most importantly, very-good excellent food. Although not at the cutting edge of LA dining, the food was well prepared with good attention to sourcing fresh ingredients. Although a bit pricey ($$$), the 25% Yelp promotion brought things down to quite reasonable levels. To eat outdoors in January is one of the pleasures of living in LA. Oliverio is one way of dining alfresco in luxury and style.

    We won a charity auction that Oliverio donated to. We easily made our reservation through "open table". We sampled quite a bit of their menu and truly enjoyed it all. Our waiter was great, along with all the staff we encountered. The restaurant manager noticed that I was cold (we were sitting inside) and put on some heat (I never asked but greatly appreciated his kindness). We had no idea that this establishment was so close to my husbands office (his office is in Century City). We would love to return to this place soon and make it our place to go to when we take tiny breaks away from the kids. Thank you Oliverio for making our night out, a nice one!

    Despite being a very quiet night in the restaurant, the service was extremely slow. The bread was stale. The appetizers took over half an hour to come out. We ordered the beet and burratta salad. The beets were sliced in too-thick chunks and had no flavor - and there were very few of them. Most of what was on the plate was an extremely overdressed arugula salad - the balsmaic overpowered eveything else. We waited and waited for someone to clear our plates while I watched someone bring our main course from the kitchen. They signaled someone to have our plates cleared and took our food back in to the kitchen, but then waited 10 minutes to bring it back out. My boyfriend's pasta bolognese was very bland. I'm sorry to say we will not be back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 1/4/2014
    Frankly, I was disappointed with the restaurant although I liked the hotel. My cauliflower soufflé tasted more of mashed potato than cauliflower. It was a small portion and served tepid which didn't help. It was also vastly overpriced. My main was pumpkin ravioli and I had to ask for it to be re-heated as it was also served tepid. My glass of Argentinian Merlot was delicious. My husband fared slightly better with his pasta choice but, over all, we found the selection of food to be limited and over priced. Our breakfast, however, was absolutely delicious. I had mascarpone crepes with fresh berries and my husband also enjoyed his omelette. I would recommend the hotel and the breakfast but not Olivieros for dinner.

    My wife and I were staying over night at the hotel which is hip, cool & lovely enough. The pool side dining provides great atmosphere but they changed servers on us without explanation which was odd. It wasn't busy and we had a great server/guest rapport. First course of truffled cauliflower souffle was rich and excellent, though in need of a little salt. My main course was a very sinewy Jidoori Chicken in a spicy sauce. I had to spit a lot of it out as I have a real problem with the mouthfeel of chicken ligaments. My wife's seafood pasta was also lacking seasoning and the noodles were really pushing the under al dente' line. But the wine was excellent as was the cocktail I started with.

    i LOVE coming here. luckily enough for me, it's blocks away from home. it's as fancy or laid-back as you want/need it to be. "oliverio" has been a reliable, standard for years...just like its' predecessor, "blue on blue"! i don't want it to be too well known, as there are times when the decision is made 3 minutes ahead of time to make a reservation or just roll up. if it's too well known, i wouldn't be able to do that anymore. that would make me sad. i hate being sad. please don't ever change. thank you!

    The best feature is they have a kidney shape pool with seats around. They even have cabanas that hold more than 4. So if you want outdoor dining this might be a thought. You might enjoy?????Every time we go there is really no one there so the feel for us is very quiet. I suspect if you brought tons of people the noise level would change. They seem to accomadate your dining needs. The coffee machine does seem to break down. Twice now that we tried for lattes they say just broke down. However with that said. fair value for the food and it is interesting... the oysters and large but really no flavor but the crab legs are good and the salads are outstanding.....
