Our first visit to Oliver's Restaurant was last summer when we were on our annual vacation to Newfoundland. It was an experience we will not soon forget. The food was excellent, the service was wonderful and the friendly staff made the visit such a pleasure. We recommend Oliver's to anyone wanting a real good place to eat.

Small and quaint but big on service. Two must tries are the steak and the lamb. The best in St. John's

Very good food and service. Can't go wrong here. And they will not rush you like other places. Prices were on par with other places and the desert made it complete.

We don't go out to eat very often. We have tried a number of "fine dining" places in St. John's. Olivers never disappoints! Our favourite from the food to the service.

The service was exceptional and we weren't rushed. Small appetizers and entrees include duck, scallops and lamb well seasoned with tasty accompaniments. The selection of cheeses... More

Oliver's Restaurant has been my favorite restaurant in downtown, St.John's, for 17 years. As usual, the food was excellent. I had the chicken, broccoli, mushroom crepe. Every detail was given so professionally. I had the plain cheesecake with blueberry and raspberry sauce. It was decadent! They make all of their desserts and bread on the premises. I will always recommend... More

Greeted warmly for an early 11:20 lunch and was impressed by the 2016 refurbishments. New décor is perfect for friends, family or business meetings for lunch or dinner. Lunch menu is varied with at least 4 specials - impressive. Mussels were perfectly cooked in beer/leek broth that had a perfect heat and served with crispy garlic toast to suck up... More
