    Overall a good try, but valet is challenging, food is ok. Service was great by wait staff, and menus were awesome, but expected a little more with the food and table set up. Not very cozy.

    Lobster caprese and tuna roll starters were good but not memorable. We ordered ribeye steaks. Each 18 ouncer cost $49 without any sides. When the steaks arrived, they were both overdone, so we sent them back. While we waited, the manager gave us each a complimentary glass of pinot, which was a nice gesture. Once the new steaks arrived, they were both underdone. We did not want to wait any longer, so we accepted the underdone entrees. The outside had a nice char and the flavor was good, but the cut of the steak seemed a bit subpar (perhaps select cut) and lacked quality for the price. Lava cake and bread pudding desserts were decent. Food and service were just mediocre and can be had at multiple restaurants for a fraction of the cost.

    My boyfriend and I had a really great dinner at the restaurant. We visit at least one highly recommenden restaurants when we are in LA, more than one site said Olivers, so we had to try it. The decor is nice, might be to much for some, but I liked it and that combined with the fact that it is a small place, made it fell cosy. One of the first things I noticed was the pleasent smell of food in the room, not overpowering, but made you look forward to the meal. Our waiter was really pleasent and attentiv all thru our stay. My boyfriend had a steak, he loved it, I tasted it and it was so juicy and tender. I had organic Marys organic chicken with apple, yummy. Only tried one of the cocktails, but want to try more. We will be back again.

    To be this caliber of a restaurant I was expecting more. When the general manager reprimands and employee in front of customers is poor business. Also the general manager was stern with the customer as well noting we were early and we would have to wait in the lounge. Bartender in the lounge was slow as molasses and service was poor. Drinks were also not up to standards. I would have thought this place would be of high standard located in West Hollywood? NOT!!!

    Five stars for this fine restaurant. From the service to the food and wine it was excellent in every way. The steak and lobster may have been the best I've had. Our waiter gave us just the right amount of attention without being overbearing. We will definitely be back soon.

    we had a great evening with friends at Oliver's. The place is not too big and the music is not too loud so its a perfect place if you actually want to talk and not just eat/drink. The food was amazing, all four main course dishes were excellent. My filet mignon was just a bit more well done than I expected but it was flavourful and juicy. We had cocktails and wine, all are good, but keep in mind you have to wait a lot to get the cocktails (we were warned:) ). The servers were great, explained the menu, always there when we needed anything.

    This place could be great, however the service is a bit on the amateur side, and the food is just not there. The menu is a great idea, but the execution is just missing. The food wasn't memorable, and the service was fair. Our sever was a very nice guy, but just not cut out to service a $100.00 per person meal.

    I adore the cushioned white crescent moon booths. Romantic atmosphere! Their menus are heavy and lights up. The service was excellent. Hostess greeted us as we walked in, manager and our server asked how our food was and our busser (Moses) was attentive and friendly. They start you off with a toasted bread and butter. Had the tuna rolls (could have been a bit more citrusy). The lamb chops were plump and juicy - so delicious and came with 4 chops. I highly recommend the lamb chops! The bone-in rib eye chop was excellent too. They offer valet parking for $8 with validation. The hostess with ask you before you leave as well. There is also a self paid parking lot across from them - $2/hour up to 2 hours max.

    What a fantastic restaurant. I think it was the best New York Strip I have ever had. We were blown away with the Food, Choice of Wines, Ambiance, and the service. The server seemed to appear always at the right time, was very knowledgeable with the Menu, preparation, Wine List etc. The appetizers, try the Tuna and Crab Rolls. The side dishes..I have never had Pearl Onions prepared that way before. I suggest you try this restaurant now before the waiting list. The design was so sophisticated and comfortable. After dinner we went to the new lounge Bar 20. It was just awesome. Again the design and staff was just incredible. I will be back and highly recommend this great new restaurant..have the 14 ounce, New York, melts in your mouth.

  • Why bother
    LadoodieVIP
    Dined on 6/14/2014
    With so many great steakhouses in LA, why bother going to Oliver's? I thought of one redeeming factor, theirs menus light up when you open them. It is not that it was awful, but it certainly was not great, it has absolutely no atmosphere on a Saturday night, there was nothing notable about the menu, it was far from cheap and even the valet parking was $10 when we were done with our meal.

It was all cooked to perfection and delicious. Our servers were gracious and attentive. The space itself is beautiful - elegant but not overdone. We will definitely be back.

    The room is gorgeous; clean and modern with a style of sophistication. There is a nice choice of starters. We loved the tuna rolls and grilled artichokes with Burata. We shared the Porterhouse for two and it could not have been more perfect. Charred on the outside and red in the middle. The service was great.

    This is really a super well run steak house in a wonderful room. Every dish attempted and mostly succeeded in being interesting and tasty. Muscles, Lobster caprese, tuna tartar, fresh and creative. Lamb, perfectly cooked. Halibut special, perfect. The only problem is, just a bit too expensive to want to rush back unless I sell a screenplay. The wine list is fine but needs a few budget choices. There are so many great wines that retail for under $15, why not have a few available in the $30-40 range? Service was prompt but not rushed or pushy.

    In the tradition of old style steak houses but with an upscale contemporary décor, Oliver's Prime Steakhouse is a great new restaurant on the Sunset Strip. Everything on the menu you would expect from a steakhouse from high end aged beef and seafood to all of the sides and desserts. They have the current popular food trends including pretzel rolls and plenty of bacon (be sure to try the Bacon & Onions side) as well as a selection of rubs and sauces for your steak. The service was excellent and the chef even accommodated my ridiculous request for a special sauce not on the menu - and served it up at a quality far superior to many equivalent restaurants that have it on the menu. Look out Boa - you got new competition at your old space!

I wish that other restaurants would have their wait staff trained by Oliver's because the service is impeccable. Thank you for another great visit. I look forward to returning soon.

    The evening we dined, the dining room had only one other occupied table. Very uncomfortable to have a lovely room, attentive staff, overpriced menu for unestablished restaurant and very expensive parking... The staff were great- no other customers for distraction in a private dining room, yet very depressing- need to revise concept to get customers in the door... Food was ok, but nothing to write home about.. No specials for hotel guests... Too many great restaurants try this again!
