    Second year at Oliver's to celebrate Christmas. Staff, food, ambience...was exceptional. I was a solo diner and staff made sure that I comfortable. Had filet mignon, seasonal vegetables and mashed potatoes. The potatoes reminded me of my German grandmother's. My compliments to the chef

    As always, Oliver’s and Chef Ross delivered. Wife and I were seated promptly and service by bus staff and server was timely yet unobtrusive. Staff is very experienced and it shows. Small plate of “48 hour pork belly” with mushroom porridge, peas, satsuma mandarin, and soft poached egg was absolutely delicious (notwithstanding very rich). Very different, but terrific. Wife’s prime strip steak was as expected - perfect. My main (“Snake River Farm Bavette Steak” - a flank cut) was a gamble with an unusual mix of meat, vegetables, and seasoning. A huckleberry gastrique (sugar-vinegar reduction) was drizzled on charred raddichio, accompanied by slow cooked confit potato, glazed onion, beautiful green romanesco - with a subtle sprinkling of Egyption dukkah (ground nut and spice mixture). The flank steak was perfectly cooked and very tender. Very well seasoned also. Dessert was s granny smith apple composition with vanilla ice cream Altogether, a great and unique meal.

    Xmas usually brings out the best in everything, and that summarizes another Dining experience at Olivers. Beautifully decorated for the Holidays, along with all that work there looking sharp, smiley and precise. Louie and Carl behind the bar, mixing up the finest cocktails, and sharing funny stories, is a great way to start the evening. David the owner, circulates, greeting patrons, and making sure that every course is perfect. And it was! We unfortunately had no room left for dessert tonight, but not to worry, we are coming back soon for another evening in one of Buffalo’s finest establishment! Merry Christmas

    I took my mother to Oliver's for Thanksgiving dinner, which is becoming our new tradition. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent - thank you Rob and team! We started with the spinach loaf, a guilty pleasure that is large enough that half goes home as leftovers. I enjoyed the turkey dinner and Mom had the scallops, which had a spicy kick to them. To top it all off we were seated near the bar and got to see the end of the Bills game and enjoy their victory over the Cowboys. We had a great time!

    The rib eyes were very tender. Didn’t care too much for the aldente veggies. The server, Fred, was excellent. Friendly, funny yet very professional. My drink, the sweater weather or warm sweater (says my fiancé) was absolutely delicious. We will go again for special occasions.
