The bone in rib eye was tasteless and dry. Given this is a prime steakhouse it was a complete failure.
Side dishes were ok the tuna apetizer came very cold on a stale cracker.

Amazing food, beautiful restaurant. The service was outstanding as well, the only downside was the incredibly rowdy chef. The restaurant was fairly quiet overall, which made it very easy to hear one specific chef shouting, joking, and laughing in the back for most of the evening. Wouldn’t have been as big of a deal if it weren’t for the fact that they do a very good job of cultivating an intimate, romantic atmosphere, and that was greatly hindered by the rowdiness.

Amazing food, one of the best ribeye steaks I've ever had! Salt and pepper shrimp starter was also excellent. Waiters were all very friendly with great service. Not the cheapest place you will ever go but we'll worth the money.

Steak was very good. Anything vegetable was uninspired and underdone, however. Service was attentive and professional. Ambiance is post-modern garbage. Prices are perhaps 25% above what one would expect to pay for the quality of what was received.

My Sea Bass was Blah.
Appetizers were very hotel fare.
We all were disappointed that their dessert menu had changed. One of the reason Oliver's Prime was choosen was for the Creme Brule for our daughters birthday & it was no longer offered.

Very nice, there is better steak but the place is run like a well oiled machine, the staff is perfection so it really makes up for any faults the food might have. If I’m being honest, the steak was a little dry.

Spectacular dining experience! The food was incredible. The shrimp appetizer and also the scallop appetizer where the best I have ever tasted. I got the center cut filet, and my husband got the $72 porterhouse steak. They both were the best steaks we have ever had!! We will be back again the next time we come to L.A.

This restaurant has it all: Great charm, great food, great decor. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The steak was delicious and perfectly cooked. The appetizers are beautifully presented and so good. The dimmed lighting is very romantic. And we appreciated the generous seating that let us feel we had private space. We will definitely go back again.

I bought a Travelzoo voucher for this restaurant. There were three choices for each-appetizer, entrée and dessert. Nice interior, friendly staff, and the food was delicious. The voucher was purchased for $99/2. I saw the regular prices and they were a bit pricey. The filet with potatoes was melt in your mouth. The chocolate dome awesome and the tuna appetizer was pretty good also. Service was a bit slow but we were in no hurry. We parked across the street for $2/hr. but had to dodge the traffic as the crosswalks were a bit away from the restaurant.
Would only recommend to friends with a bit of disposable income and who don't mind the drive (from Santa Clarita).

That was the best service and food I had in LA.our server Nathan and the person that was training, Craig were phenomenal! We ordered 5/6 appetizers and an entree , Nathan took the time to send out the food in a timely matter never rushing us. They were attentive without being intrusive. Great hosts without making us feel unwanted as there were only two other tables in the restaurant. I do not understand why this place is not busier! The food & service is amazing! Ask for Nathan.

I never give bad reviews but this has to be one of our most disappointing dining experiences ever. I am not exaggerating First of all we walked in and the restaurant smelled of rancid fish. That should have been our first tip off. We asked the hostess who sent the manager over who actually couldn't have been nicer. He informed us the smell was "fresh scallops" and that is how they smell when cooked. Um ok... not at seafood restaurants we've been to, but we gave it a pass. The restaurant decor is lovely and almost every seat is a booth which is nice. We ordered the iceberg lettuce wedge, which wasn't a wedge, it was a small portion of lettuce leaves, and the lobster caprese, where they forgot the cheese, so it was lobster with cherry tomatoes, and olive oil the tomatoes weren't ripe and were hard and sour. Moving right along we ordered the NY steak $60 and the ribeye $52 they were suppose to be 14oz and 18oz respectively. They were about half that size. The steaks came room temperature, alone on a cold white plate. We were shocked. I kid you not. We had mac and cheese (which was good) and broccolini which was plain steamed, not charred as stated on the menu. We never saw our waiter again. We ordered Apple Tarte from the bus boy with vanilla ice cream. It came sans vanilla ice cream and was days old. Absolutely awful. The worst. The prices were outrageous, especially for what we ate. We will never return and will be telling all our friends the same. I am shocked that reviews for this establishment are so good. Who's writing these? As we waiting for our car $16 plus tip, the people next to us were raging furious over their dining experience. Sounded a lot like ours. Shame on Oliver's. Hopefully some of you will read this and it will stop you from going there and wasting your time and money.

I have had the privilege to eat at many high end restaurants. How this place is presented and the price, I would put this place in that category.

First impression was the place was very nice. Services started out a little slow. Was told he was bringing bread and after a while had to ask for the bread. We had built up quite the appetite knowing we were coming to a high end restaurant. Sonthe bread went quickly and we requested more bread. This time to only return with 3 small slices.

We go ahead and order our food. He asked if we would also like an appetizer. We review the menu and ask if they seared Ahi. He said yes the Seseme Tuna is a seared ahi. So we order. I also ordered a salad just to find out there was only one dressing to choose from so I canceled. About 20 minutes later the appetizer came out and was not seared ahi to our disappointment. We gave it a go anyways and was very disappointed. He took it back and said he must have misspoke.

Our meals come and look nice. I had the filet. Which was very average at best. My friend had the Bison which was better than my filet but not amazing. My fiancé had the chicken Caesar and the chicken was extremely dry. So dry she did not eat all the chicken. The mash potatoes were very good and the mushrooms were good but on the bland side.

So over all we were not very impressed with our experience. We chose this restaurant by the reviews online, so we did have high expectations. We were very much let down. Hope it was just a fluke but feel you needed to know our experience.

Regards

I was extremely pleased with my dining experience. The place is gorgeous. It is quiet, which is very nice for a change of pace to not have to scream at your dinner companion. We were un-rushed, no desire to turn the table. The courses came at a leisurely pace which should be the case with fine dining.

The service was very good, without being intrusive. The manager, Dennis, is great & makes you feel like you are in his home.

The steak & vegetables were like heaven on a plate.

This is a high end steak house so it isn't inexpensive.

For the price, I expected better.

On the plus side, the staff were very friendly. But there was too long of a wait between courses. And we weren't there at a busy time.

The biggest downside is that the food is just OK. Sure I ate everything I ordered; none of it tasted bad. But this is a very expensive restaurant, and I wanted to be wowed as I am at other restaurants in this price range. The thing that made it less special for us was when we learned that they make only one of the desserts in-house. That meant they weren't able to modify one of the desserts to be allergen-free. It made me wonder what else on the menu they aren't making themselves.

Ultimately we dined there for a special occasion, and it ended up not feeling special. So we won't be returning.

My husband and I went here on our anniversary and we couldn't be more pleased! It's a small little restaurant but the service and the food are wonderful. We were approached by the manager at the end of our meal, who asked how our experience was. We told him that we were just discussing how this is probably going to be our new go-to restaurant and that we would be coming back soon! We really enjoyed our time there together and the waiter, Robert, was so sweet and so courteous. The whole experience was definitely worth it and I'm not even a huge fan of Sunset Boulevard! Thank you to the restaurant, thank you to the chef, and thank you for the service on our anniversary-- you made it very special. :)

The food was very yummy but there's so much hype about Oliver's being the best steakhouse in California that we expected something mind blowing. The steak tasted like a good cut of meat - nothing special and definitely not good enough to spend 3 to 4 times what you would if you prepared it yourself. We tried the scallops too which were just like the steak - yummy but nothing special. The waiter was absent and we waited a while before finally getting refills multiple times. The hostess was fantastic though. The manager did show up at the end of our visit (we just finished paying) and seemed to genuinely want to know how great the experience was. Unfortunately we were running very late so we didn't have time to tell him. It was a nice restaurant but the value wasn't there for us.

While visiting Los Angeles we had a craving for a good steak...some of our first choices were booked on Friday night, but we then found Oliver's on the Beverly Hills side of Sunset Blvd. It was about 7pm and the place was empty...a bit surprising, but we were welcomed and quickly made to feel at home. It's a small place, but very beautifully decorated and the waiter was very attentive and enthusiastic. We had a bone-in ribeye and a filet...both were very good, but seemed a bit high in price. Had their Mac n' Cheese as a side and licked the plate clean! The only slight negative is parking...Oliver's is in the lobby of The Grafton Hotel. Valet parking was about $10 with the restaurant validation. The restaurant is about 3 years old and still growing by word-of-mouth and social media and if they can maintain the quality of food, they should be around for a long time.
