    Food was fantastic. Gnocchi with bolognese sauce was perfect. The gnocchi were light and pillowy…cooked to perfection and the sauce with Italian sausage was creamy, well-seasoned with a touch of red chili. The maple glazed salmon was well cooked and while not the best version of this meal, it was above average. Apps included a stellar wonton mojo pork nacho and calamari. Both top-notch. Prices very reasonable. We will return for sure.

    Have lunch here often and not as much for dinner. But dinner was very enjoyable and the wait staff continue to be friendly and capable. Only recommendation would be to provide a bread service at dinner.

    Loved my first visit to Oliver’s. We had reservation's which was nice to be able to book online. Server was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. We had tickets to a show at the Grand Opera house and had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and not feel rushed. I will definitely go back and do recommend trying this place if you haven’t.

    After a long and tiring day my wife and I decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner on Sunday night. We don't eat out much and never eat at chain restaurants. We'd eaten at Oliver's in the past and enjoyed it, but it had been awhile. We made a reservation through OpenTable, which was quick and easy. We made it for 5:30, since we like to eat early. It was a good thing we made the reservation and made it for an early time, because by the time we finished, Oliver's had gotten busy and people were waiting to be seated. Oliver's, which was good before, has really stepped up their game. My wife had the seafood special of halibut and I had the filet. Both meals were excellently prepared. My steak was just as I had specified and my wife's halibut was perfect. They got my asparagus just right, nice and crunchy but not undercooked. We topped off our meal with a very pleasant Primotivo wine and finished with their tasty tiramisu. Our host and waiter were friendly, helpful and attentive. This all made for just the dining experience we were after. My wife commented it was the nicest eating out experience we have had in a long time. We'll certainly be returning regularly!

    Our server pretty much forgot all about us, he spent more time with the other table that came in after us. Not sure if he knew them or even if their were friends of his. Our bill was over $100.00 and even though he completely forgot about us, we still tipped him well. This is the second time we have received inhumane treat we still decided to try it again. I believe Oliver's is on our list of boycotts. We're college professor, that treatment was wrong!!!

    The atmosphere was great and our server was amazing! The food could have been better. The entrees were cold and cold mashed potatoes / shrimp & grits are really bad! The filet was undercooked for the birthday girl, who wanted it well done. We didn’t complain wanted a nice dinner.

    We love Oliver’s but our table in the front room by the bar was not great for a night of catching up with friends. Ask to sit in the back or sit outside if you want a good space for conversation. Our food was prepared well and the service was good. They were out of a few items, even after presenting them as specials for the night. Overall though, you will find wonderfully prepared dishes and it doesn’t disappoint as a date spot.

    We took a party of 6 to Oliver’s for a business dinner. The service was great and the food was outstanding. The lobster ravioli special was a huge hit with 2 of our guest. One guest commented that the honey bourbon salmon was the best salmon dish they have ever had. Oliver’s never disappoints and I highly recommend them.
