Outstanding food, even for the non-vegans in our party. We’ll be coming back here as often as we can. Wish we lived closer to Montecito.
Oliver’s needs to publish a cookbook!
Oliver's is now one of our standard pre-concert dinner venues. The food, service, presentation, wine list and ambiance set the stage for a great evening out. The Oliver's "burger" is not to be missed, and the other plant-based offerings are creative, filling and delicious.
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!
Wonderful service and great food! As a vegetarian it is a pleasure not to have to worry what is on the menu!
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.
Love it here!
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.
Oliver is has always been superb. Great feed vegan food. They know how to put it together to make it wonderful. Glad they are not open at noon
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.
Nothing to complain or suggest at all. Superb experience. Would recommend this place to anyone in the SB area. Delicious, great set up. Can't wait to go back!
I am not a vegan but my grandson is and he was so pleased to see what was on your menu The service from the valet parking to the service given in the restaurant was exceptional.
Tried to celebrate our 30th anniversary! Salad and cocktails amazing the other 3 choices average at best! I wish I had listened to other reviews about food quality!
We enjoyed our meal. The food was tasty. Service was excellent. It was very good but not great.
Food excellent for vegans and non vegans ... all around great experience!
Outstanding Food & Service... highly recommended for anyone, especially those on a strict Plant-Based diet.
A beautiful setting, tastefully decorated with great lighting and outdoor area. Fantastic service and excellent Vegan food options, fresh and flavorful. Rare to find both Form and Function in a vegan restaurant. Highly recommended.
We went here for our wedding anniversary and we absolutely loved it. The food was outstanding; creative and delicious. Highly recommend Oliver’s for fabulous vegan food
It was absolutely amazing. We loved it!
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!
Everything was so flavorful and perfect! Our server Natalie was awesome. She was very attentive and catered to our needs. We’ll be back for sure
Super delicious vegan fare and "healthy" cocktails. Great interior design and both inside and the patio offer a wonderful atmosphere. Servers were spot on and adorable to boot! Will be back for sure!
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.
First timers - can’t wait to go back. So good!!
Loved the food! Great service too!
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.
One suggestion: Please open in Los Angeles.
Our server Lyle and the host too were fantastic!
Wonderful experience to finally have a fancy dining experience as a vegan after 2.5 years <3
We we’re entertaining family from out of town. They each have many food allergies and I knew Oliver’s could accommodate their needs and they did.
We always make it a GO TO whenever we are visiting Santa Barbara. The chefs are very creative. The service is great and the ambiance is very relaxing in this trendy restaurant. Love it!
Expensive, but absolutely delicious. So glad we celebrated our 2nd year anniversary here.
I have already recommended this restaurant to my daughter who will be in the vicinity early next week. The dinner on the patio was the highlight of our weekend visit. The service was top notch. The food was great. The setting in this fairly new restaurant was vey memorable.
Great variety for vegan
Very poor service in an empty restaurant
Same experience every time!
Delicious food and drinks.
