Yes, we did go on a Saturday evening when there was a week long local special for restaurants in the area. But considering the reputation of this long standing establishment, we were disappointed.

As always, Oliver's earned my highest rating for ambience, service, menu options, food & wine quality & plating. It was an altogether enjoyable dining, and business lunch, experience.

Always ranked as one of the best I was disappointed at my last visit. The menu was very standard Amaeeican and only OK for the prices. Lovely bar and decent service but lacking in innovation. Very disappointed as this was always reliably excellent. Not worth the price

Forget special occasions! We go once a week and have small plates at the bar. This is such a wonderful restaurant it is worth saving to enjoy the occasion. Also lunch is a great bargain.

Food preparation leaves a lot to be desired. Service personnel did everything to suggest alternative dishes when chef could not rectify dish ordered
