    We love Oliver’s. It is the best vegan cuisine around. We have taken several guests there who aren’t vegan and they enjoyed the food as well. Great flavors and presentation and the ambiance on the outdoor patio is lovely. I always look forward to going back!

    Had to go walk up the the host to say we were ready to order. Waiter never came over and introduced himself or said hello to us. The other staff members were good. The people next to us sat down after us and were already eating before us.

    We came to Oliver's for my daughter's 14th birthday. She had had dinner there once before and requested this location for her birthday. The ambiance is nice with the outdoor patio, the staff is friendly and attentive, and the food is very tasty. They apparently don't do anything special for a birthday (not even a candle in a dessert), but she had a really nice time and that is what mattered.

    Amazing food. The artichoke heart “crab cake” and the spicy cauliflower were great. We also enjoyed the corn chowder. The only problem is that we were t hungry enough to try more dishes. Go with a group so you can try it all! I think non vegans would enjoy these dishes as well. The service was also attentive and fast. We were on the patio and it was lovely - beautiful lights and nice music, not too loud. Altogether a wonderful experience.

    This is one of the best vegan restaurants in California. It's not uber raw foodist which can be too much. It's a perfect blend of gourmet cooking and vegan italism.

    Oliver’s always delights and satisfies. I have brought many people here over the years. My fav’s are kung pow cauliflower, zuccini tower, and the mushroom raviolis. The coctails are creative and delicious.

    Generally a good, if a bit expensive, eat. Service was a bit off (as it seems to be everywhere.) The menu is getting boring for me. But a very nice place for an occasional dinner.

    I expected better, and I am vegan. Not very original, using fake "meats" in entrees. Service was quite good, but they blast unsuitable music not befitting of a nice dinner in a nice area.

    My husband and I are from San Diego, and we love the date night similar vegan restaurant called “The Plot”. Oliver’s was even better! Great atmosphere, excellent food and presentation and ALL vegan, cruelty free! How ‘bout that! If you truly “love animals” by being kind to them, you will want to support Oliver’s. But you’ll totally forget everything is vegan if you claim to be a “meat” lover. Cool place, trendy, yet warm atmosphere! You’ll love it!

    What a great experience at this gem of a place. The service was outstanding. Our waiter was awesome and so was the server Chloe. Vibe and ambience is so chill and really pretty which is an added bonus. Food was outstanding, we tried many dishes. The standouts were the following. Flatbread with Italian Sausage, Brussels sprouts, shishito peppers, jackfruit tacos and do not miss out on the Pad Thai! Four of the five diners are not vegan and they were completely blown away by this place…..don’t miss dining here!

    Food was good as always. Service unfortunately was not. Took a while to be greeted and interaction was rushed. Server was extremely condescending, talking to us like we were children, and did not show a genuine interest. Table side manners just weren’t there, and we felt unwelcome and rushed to leave. The only genuine person was the person that first greeted us and poured our water. Overall was a huge disappointment and sadly don’t think I will stop by anymore when I am in the area.
