Amazing food and ambiance! LOVED the music and cocktails. I highly recommend the crab cakes and key lime pie. The coffee is to die for and from a local roaster, Green Star. Skip the mushroom ravioli. Will be back soon!!

We love, love, love Olivers! Best vegan food in town - and at very reasonable prices!

We had the "crab" cakes (again) and they were super delicious as usual! We also had the mushroom tostado - SO GOOD!

Everything was so good, the weather was lovely, and our server was great!

Had a lovely time. Been back on many occasions. Food continually surprises us and the drinks are A+.
Understand the concept of turning tables, but after only an hour of dining wish we didn’t feel like we were being rushed out.

The salads were very tasty and good portions. The flatbread was good. The restaurant needs more entree type meals that aren’t spicey. Left the restaurant feeling hungry.

Food was tasty but absurdly overpriced ($23+ for 4 mouthfuls of cauliflower..$20 for mushroom ravioli with literally only 4 pieces of ravioli, so swimming in tomato sauce no mushrooms could be tasted in or outside the pasta ...

Waiter was friendly but the bussing service was poor..small sharing plates several times did not come with utensils for two (without us asking), plates were not changed in between without us asking (and once we could not find any wait staff in sight so the next dish had to be eaten (while still warm) in the sauce of the prior food item.

The tables were disgustingly filthy. --the bumpy textured plastic was FILLED with months or years of grime. I've never seen restaurant tables that dirty. I can't believe they are allowed to serve on tables that are grimy in appearance. They should consider table cloths or do a good solid bleach based true scrub down.


Also the women's washroom sink water was not working, and when I told the staff person nearest, outside at the cash register, she did not apologize, did not offer to show me, or send someone in to show me, simply told me "oh it's a bit tricky, you have to waive your hands in a certain angle underneath! (I tried a half dozen ways..if it is so rare/unusual why do they not put up signage..and at the very least show some courtesy to a guest who is reporting an issue).

I'm a vegetarian for four decades and know my vegan foods! The waiter assured us we ordered "the best items on the menu" and we were so disappointed.

The food is excellent - except dessert! We did not enjoy the "Key Lime Pie" at all. Our waitress was lovely and made great recommendations otherwise. They will absolutely make it known when you have overstayed your welcome so be prepared!

Oliver’s Burger! It is why I come here. Actually, I also enjoy their flatbreads and salads as well as the Brussels sprouts with avocado and pecans. The crab cakes are a favorite.Billy makes truly special cocktails, too! Lots of love and care in this restaurant!

The restaurant is beautiful but the noise level is way too high. The music was just bang, bang bang! The staff turned "the music" down twice when asked, but the volume was still way too high and made it impossible to carry on a decent conversation.

Without question the most understated, outstanding venue in all of Santa Barbara. The best food and most magical ambience. If you haven’t got on the plant-based Wagon yet, you don’t deserve to eat here. Thank you Oliver’s again! You all are the best!
