Taco I ordered had great taste and temp but I couldn't eat it as a taco. It was too soggy to do so.
Dessert was way too sweet. The server graciously took it off the bill because I ate 2 bites.

I love the food at olivers. The greatest high dining vegan food in the area for sure. You would not even know it is plant based. I had dinner there last Saturday and also just yesterday. I tried the crab cakes a week ago. Yesterday I once again had the Burger on the pretzel bun. So good. The coconut bacon is to die for. Everything on it just works so well together. The side salad captures all the burger fallings making for a delicious post burger salad. Their unsweetened iced tea is strangely so delicious. Definitely fresh brewed. Their chocolate tart is also super yummy. Very chocolatey but not too rich.
The feeling of the restaurant is so calming and luxurious. The perfect spot for any dinner. It’s somewhat on the pricey side but first of all Monticeto and also you know going in that it’s a more up scale place so it’s reasonable for the experience. Would definitely recommend!

It's a beautiful venue and great food. My only complaint about last night. is that they have the techno music turned up very loud, and it is hard to talk over it. We had late reservations, and after many of the other guests had left, I asked several times if they could turn the music down a little. It was still booming most of the time. I fail to understand how having this loud music is supposed to make the dining experience more enjoyable. I've eaten at Oliver many times before, and I don't recall this being as much of a problem as it was last night.

This was my third visit to Oliver's. The food is delicious and I love the ambience! I live in LA and when I'm in Santa Barabara, I make it a point to have dinner at Oliver's. I don't always love vegan restaurants but I have to avoid dairy so vegan food is actually a nice option for me. Oliver's does it right. Everything I have tried has such a wonderful mix of flavors. And I finish every meal with the key lime pie which is perfection. It's so nice to be able to enjoy one of my favorite desserts again!

From the moment our wonderful waitress Carly came over and immediately took a drink order to the last bite of our delicious burgers, it was a perfect meal. We lived the suggested “sausage” flatbread, Brussels sprouts, crab cakes and impossible burger. The atmosphere matches the wonderful food and a great evening was had. Thanks so much Marla

Oliver’s is vegan but carnivores can enjoy as the dishes are unique and interesting, not your same old, same old. Our server was so patient as we took forever to figure out which wine to order and then which dish we each wanted. Can’t wait to return!

This was an amazing experience. The ambiance of the restaurant was absolutely wonderful. The seating options were wonderful and the decor was great. The servers were all extremely kind and helpful choosing what to eat. The food was INCREDIBLE. We got multiple share plates and split everything between us. Everything was delicious and the portion sizes were really good. The flavors were wonderful and even our friends who weren't vegan enjoyed.

I just love that they are cocktails use fresh fruit and vegetable juices. It really makes a difference. The artichoke “crab cakes” are delicious. The ambience is wonderful for being outdoors under these stunning trees, and I love all the heaters too. Our waitress was pleasant and available if needed, but not over bearing, which I really appreciate. All around a wonderful birthday dinner.

Best vegan restaurant we’ve ever visited. Food was creative, and well-presented. Great, attentive service. The wait staff wears identical clothing, which gives a nice coordinated look. The outdoor white lights add to the warm ambiance.

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!
