Delicious vegan food that non-vegans would love. Had the artichoke “crab” cakes and burger. Would order the artichoke cakes again and do recommend the burger but be warned it’s big and a little messy. The patio seating is cozy at night and the place has a relaxed and tasteful vibe. The front of house staff are attentive and pleasant. Will be part of my dining repertoire when in the area.

This was our second visit so I was worried there would be a letdown. There was not.

I am not Vegan but the food is amazing, Service is great, and the outdoor space is beautiful.

Highly recommend.

We had dinner for three. Beautiful outdoor setting with tree lights. Vegan food that had some high points. Only table available to us was on the main flight path to the kitchen. Lots of wait staff banter.

The pad Thai and artichoke cakes were delicious delicious! As a vegan, I found the ravioli and hummus bland but spicy.

Okivers is the best gourmet vegan restaurant in the country as far as I am concerned.
And I have eaten in most of them.
The kale squash salad was unbelievable.
Brussel sprouts were the best I have ever tasted.
And it goes on…
The ambience is perfect.
Service unequaled.
I cannot say enough about this restaurant.

The patio was charming and comfortable in the evening with heat sources and lights in the trees. Tremendous creativity in the all-plant-based offerings.

The food and drinks were delicious, and Natalie was a perfect professional. She was knowledgeable, personable, and kind- whatever she’s being paid, she deserves more. My wife and I chatted the rest of the night about how impressed and pleased we were with the whole experience. Thanks to the whole Oliver’s team!

Some interesting items, mostly small bites without many entrees. The bar and bar selection is very good. Seems less of a dinner restaurant and more an upscale lounge.

Excellent vegan food, good cocktail options. Portions were perfectly sized for two people sharing a starter and a main each plus dessert. Very attentive waitress and meals are reasonably priced. Food came out very quickly but never felt rushed to leave.

The Best Kept Secret in Santa Barbara/Montecito. Other restaurants in the area are pedestrian. Oliver's is unique and consistently delectable! The ambiance is charming and understated. Their staff is professional and attentive. Looking forward to my next visit before long!

Only complaint is that the music is way too loud.

We spent our 30th anniversary at Oliver's last night, and had a lovely dinner. The service was perfection thanks to Natalie, our server. We thoroughly enjoyed every dish, and our table outdoors under the sprawling tree with romantic lighting set the mood perfectly. We absolutely will be back!
