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.
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...
Having a wife who eats Vegan for health reasons always makes going out a challenge. Oliver's made it easy and I would be vegan too, if it always tasted this good. Looking forward to a return visit.
My meat eating husband said, “That was the best meal I’ve ever had that I thought I was going to hate.” 😂
Love having an all vegan restaurant option in Santa Barbara.
The atmosphere was very relaxing and calm. The food was amazing! Every single dish was delicious. The service and food accomadations were superb.
Absolutely amazing restaurant, food and service. Highly recommend to everyone. Bonus if you are Vegan. Celebrated my daughters Sweet 16 and had a fantastic time. Highly recommend
Great food and service!
Outstanding menu and portion size. Lots of big pleasing flavors. Wait staff is a bit casual and could step it up a bit. Excellent bar staff.
Amazing food. Nothing like it. Best vegan food ever
Everything about Oliver’s was amazing. From the food down to the ambiance and weight staff. Simply amazing
Oliver’s is such a unique experience. I’ve been here a couple times and both visits were fantastic. As a vegan, I’ll admit that it’s rare to find a vegan place that does fine dining well. Would highly recommend!!
What a gem! I went to three of my girlfriends and we ordered a sampling of so many of the small plates. It was absolutely delicious and we would go back in a second. Can't wait to take my husband and others as well.
Even non vegans and vegetarians will love Oliver’s.
The food is amazing and flavorful not to mention eye appealing with color and texture.
Service is top notch and discreet as even the Hollywood “A” listers dine there with nobody bothering them for pictures or autographs.
If you like spirits they have a full bar with an incredible assortment of adult libations.
Dinner for my wife and I including two cocktails each was less than $100.00 and for Santa Barbara, that’s a bargain!!
This is our favorite restaurant normally but this time the food was absolutely horrible. Either they got new chef or it’s summer and they are to busy. It had so much sauce and stuff was added to food that wasn’t described on menu. When we left I actually got sick from food and was up puking. Not sure we will be back and this is very sad because again this was one of our favorites
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Oliver's. The food was delicious & the service excellent. We have been vegan for over three years, and this was our first time to Oliver's. We will definitely take the trip and visit again.
Kinda expensive for what you get .. and BAR costs are HIGH.
