My wife and I planned a special dinner for our 25th wedding anniversary, and made a great choice in choosing Oliver's. The food was fantastic, and the service was fabulous as Rochelle made sure our every request was taken care of.

The food was great and so the restaurant was very busy so we had to take a walk for about 15 minutes. It is cosy place. The servers were super.

We had A filet mignon with scallops and risotto, calamari, chowder and fish cakes! The food and service was very good! The fish cakes could have a condiment like green tomato chow and the chowder had way to much dill!

We had lunch at Oliver's on our last day in St. John's and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was attentive, as is the norm in Newfoundland. The seafood chowder was delicious, as were the fish cakes. The only thing I'd criticize is that chowder really shouldn't have a thickener, other than cream. It seems to be the norm in Newfoundland... More

Wish I could get there more often. The food is exceptional and the atmosphere so cozy! I have dined several times and have yet to be disappointed. The service is very friendly and again the food is just delicious.

Late night, hungry and looking for a good place to eat cod. Oliver`s was one of the choices. We did it very well the cod was very good, the vine appropriate and the final result was an excellent night

Excellent service with a small but expertly prepared entree list. We went back a second time before leaving St John's.
