Oliver's Bistro has occupied the South Beach corner of West Avenue and Ninth Street for about 15 years now. The occupation has been a quiet one with outdoor tables and chairs (under bright orange umbrellas) and a warm indoor dining area.

We are serving breakfast in the morning, lunch from 11am and dinner until 11pm. Saturday and Sunday we have a whole brunch menu until 3pm
Parking is available street side or in the garage above the restaurant, which can be accessed from 10th street. Plus the outdoor section is pet-friendly! We have diverse menu and is open everyday!

I chose Oliver's for a group because they had something to offer everyone and it was all good

The review is incomplete. The service was very spotty and some food was prepared incorrectly and some simply was never put into the kitchen by the server. Terrible disorganized. An unpleasant experience.

We love Olivers and brought some friends with us. Exceptionally poor service, as though we had no server! Even had to wait for water as the glasses were in the dishwasher. Embarrassing!

Our first experience at Oliver’s bistro for brunch.
We were sitting outside and it was very pleasant. Coming early on a Sunday morning guarantee some quiet since it’s right there in the street. Service is great and the whole staff is super nice.
The food was good. Nothing exceptional but good. The ham I had with my eggs was a little dry and so were the toasts. The eggs were good. Potatoes were good though not my favorite thing as I like hash browns better.
Too bad the jam they have served along with the toasts was bad quality (Smuckers with high fructose corn syrup) which we didn’t eat.
The thing I liked the most was the cappuccino actually. The cappuccino was out of this world, very foamy with an amazing taste, til the last drop. So far, one of the best cappuccinos I’ve ever had.
We will come back for sure and try other items in the menu, like French toasts or pancakes.

You get what you pay for. Cheap prices, average food, but very poor service. Outdoor dining was cute, and this spot is tucked away from busy South Beach.

Booked table on open table...
We've waited 30 minutes for an egg omelet and eggs Benedict, meanwhile everyone else who came after us received their food before us, we ended up paying $60 to have food packed to go. NEVER AGAIN

The host was great, but looks like either the server forgot we had been seated or they were just too slow. It took too long both to get attention and then to get the check. Food was ok. I went on a weekend at about noon.

Visiting from Nashville and stumbled upon this place. A short 15 minute walk from our hotel. Everything was supremely delicious. Our waiter was slow. Rarely checked on the table but was nice when we did interact with him. Not sure if he understood much English but he was okay. My initial water glass had dried lipstick prints and dried orange juice pulp on it but was replaced. Everything else about the place was great!!!

This was a really cool vibe. I was greeted warmly by the host and they allowed us to pick exactly where we wanted to sit. That was cool! The weather was perfect, so we sat outside. We were serviced right away and our food was prepared quickly. I ordered a cosmopolitan with peace juice and OMG! So good! The food was delicious as well. The only suggestion I would have is maybe better lighting outside because it was really dark, so we had to use our flashlights to see the menu. Overall, this was a great restaurant and I would highly recommended it to my family, friends and others who are looking for somewhere to dine in Miami.
