This is one of my favorite restaurants! The food is delicious and creative, and it’s easy to share dishes. The service is very good and the ambiance is romantic. Worth a detour!

I dined here with my husband and mother for my 40th birthday. We shared four small plates and a flatbread. The food, service and ambiance was phenomenal. My mother called ahead and told them it was my birthday so at the end of the meal the waiter surprised me with dessert. It was a perfect evening.

Started with cocktails at couches by fire pit outside bar. Moved to Table For 5 (Good name for a Movie) with Heather as our server
Food was excellent. Heather was very professional and attentive and ambiance was perfect (Heat lamps helped as we sat outdoors)

Very nice place, but you better be ready to eat plants only and no dairy or eggs. We tried it. Not our thing. Veterinarian and vegan.

Beautiful space. Nice vegan faire. Not feverishly inventive but pretty good. Service was decent but we didn’t exactly push it so we can’t say for sure. Prices were a little high but, given the location and ambiance, I’d say they were generally justified.

The five dishes we ordered all came out at the same time. I had asked our server whether we should order a couple of dishes at a time so that the dishes would be staggered. She said she would take care of the sequence and timing,and because of her assurance I proceeded to order everything at once.

Because of this, the dishes tended to blur with one another, and we lost our ability to savor each dish for its unique taste.

We sat on the patio enjoying the fresh air, music and golden retrievers.
Service was attentive and polite. Only complaint about the food was the brussels sprouts were bland. I asked them to add vinegar and they did. Okay.
The rest of the food we loved. In particular, I had the special, squash salad. Hearty, flavorful, with contrasts in taste and texture. Nutty with bright surprise of pomegranate. Fun to eat!
What a joy to find multiple things on the dessert menu we could actually say "yes" to!
We had the maple apple tart (GF!) and you could definitely taste the maple!
Walked away happy.

We have been to Oliver's several times since they opened. The portions have become smaller since opening, with no change to the price. On this last visit, we had to ask to see our server twice! It took 20 minutes to get a cocktail. The host was very helpful though while we waited for our server. The food is very good, but for the price, the service should be much better.

The service and the food was fantastic! As other reviews have stated, I'm a meat eater, still, even though it is a vegetarian menu, the food is savory and flavorful, even for a meat lover. I do think the meal was overpriced. There were four of us, we shared four menu items, two bottles of wine and I had one cocktail, the bill was $270. Still, overall , I give it four stars.

Beautiful sunny outdoor dining with healthy vegetarian menu- try the "crab cakes" and pasta salad.
Great service; lunch menu is smaller than dinner menu, with more small plate choices. Go and enjoy!

We went with a vegan couple and we are meat eaters. But all four of us thoroughly enjoyed the food, wine, cocktails, and the very lovely setting. We had only vegan food: my favorite was the "artichoke" crab cakes, and my husband enjoyed his Thai curry. There was a "special" cocktail that evening, which was a big hit at our table. We will definitely go back, even with non-vegan or non-vegetarian friends; it's that good! Olivers is at the top of our list of favorite restaurants in the Santa Barbara area.

It is difficult for me to find a good vegan restaurant. Oliver's has many vegan and vegetarian options. The dishes are delicious, service fantastic, and the outdoor seating is very nice. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is my wife and I thought the dishes were under seasoned. Highly recommend giving Oliver's a try the next time you are looking for a wonderful vegetarian/vegan dining experience.

Oliver's was one of best Vegan cuisine meals our family has ever experienced. We had the Kung Pao Cauliflower, Truffle Potatoes, Pad Thai Noodles and the Oliver's special - Beyond Meat Burger.

You can't miss with that lineup for dinner.

Highly Recommended.

One suggestion: Please open in Los Angeles.

Great food, great service. Amazing ambiance and nice location as well.
It was just slightly annoying that we had to wait for an extra 30-40 mins in spite of booking a table a couple of weeks earlier.

Great good overall, but they did not have a table for us despite the fact that we booked our reservation two weeks prior. Totally understand that things happen, but would have preferred a call before letting us know they did not have a table due to an event. We had to find a seat at the bar...
