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!

For a quick, inexpensive (for the area) meal, varied menu, pleasant surroundings, good service, really one of the best deals in South Beach. About as much a 'neighborhood' place as you can find. Good food in pleasant surroundings. You will come back often.

Amazing off the tourist path place for brunch, lunch and whatever else: There is nothing bad about this place. French toast was the best I’ve ever had

Oliver's Bistro is one of our favorite restaurants in Miami Beach. Great vibe, well-prepared food, a wide variety of options and very professional and friendly service. The get the mix of food and service right. No attitude. A real focus on fresh and flavor.

All good all around, I've been coming to Oliver's Bistro for years. Classic bistro menu, all items well executed. Oliver's French Onion soup is like being in Paris!

There’s a reason Oliver’s has been successful for over 20 years. Wonderful service and great food. Excellent value in the otherwise overpriced dining scene in Miami Beach.

Don't go for a reservation after 8:30pm. You will be rushed out and dessert or coffee will not be available even though they include reservations until 9:45pm on OpenTable, they close promptly at 10pm and want everyone to leave. We will not be returning and we are locals.

Worst experience of my life! Service was quite poor. Kept forgetting the orders (drinks and meals). Was charged for food that we never ordered. In 1 hr 15 minutes still never got food, except a couple of side dishes. Worst of all, the manager came over and blamed us for the problem!! He said we were impatient and rude... some of our party never got their drinks (glass of wine, not too difficult) much less our food. Unless they get rid of the manager and train their wait staff (obviously the server was inexperienced), I would tell you to STAY AWAY!!!

Be prepared to park far away. There is virtually no parking available at this location. The service was great, food was very good, a little overpriced. The atmosphere was great except for a running group that passed by on the sidewalk right next to diners more than twice while we were eating. Soda was from a bottle so no refills. We had a great meal and enjoyed Oliver’s.

Seated nicely outside, waited over 7 minutes just to be acknowledged after seating for menus, water order. Another wait for drinks, did heavy apps and stopped from ordering a meal since the food was a grade C, Calamari and Ceviche, not good. Got out of there since it was just going to be a mediocre experience.

The pancakes with bananas and walnuts were amazing! Crispy edges and big and fluffy. The best we’ve ever had! The popover is excellent as well! You can skip juice and/or soda. It was $6 for one glass of OJ and $4 for a half bottle of Diet Coke. The food though, was worth it and outstanding:)

What can one say about this place? It is a local gem. Reminds me of being in Italy or the Adriatic.

Great menu and food, reasonably priced, and lots of foot traffic (and dogs) passing by.

This place is amazing. It is out of the way of the crowded south beach area but the setting is very beautiful. The staff was very attentive, friendly and on the ball. The food was also outstanding!! We were only there because we had a layover but next time we are in Miami we will definitely be coming back!!
