    The quality of the eggs Benedictine has deteriorated! The waiter tricked us for an additional tip above the 20% built into the bill. The latter makes impossible discriminate tip for service. They forget the tip is voluntary and a reward for good service? Customers are not supposed to pay the salaries!

    Waitress was excellent. It's a local place...the appetizers were excellent. Entrees were a mixed bag. Steak frites, the steak was tough, and not cooked properly, the rest was fine...wished they had dressed salad and placed on plate...it was on side fine...but oil and vinegar only...hoping for a mustard vingarette. For for price Meh. Chicken milianase was a sad thing with salad not on top or properly dressed...it didn't get eaten, so over all would I go back? It's pricey. And pretty so-so. Maybe brunch. And wine is excellent but huge mark up per glass...it was quite at 6 on Saturday night...which was very pleasant. And staff is very good!

    We enjoyed a lovely meal at Oliver’s Bistro. We sat inside (not quite acclimatised to the heat of Miami!) and we were well looked after by our server. The Mahi Mahi was delicious! The starters were enormous so recommend splitting one! The desert menu was amazing but we had eaten too much to enjoy it! Lots of variety on the menu, including lots of fish which seems unusual here!

    Oliver's is a longstanding neighborhood restaurant. The ambience is very comfortable, with indoor and outdoor seating. The quality/taste is inconsistent, unfortunately, and you cannot predict if it will be fair or good, or it will be great. The good thing is it's hardly ever bad. The dishes they produce are "safe" with a variety on the menu that likely can please most. We've been twice for dinner in the past 2-3 months and not had the same experience--once great, the 2d just so-so. Unfortunately the 2d visit, we brought in someone who had recently moved to the neighborhood and were a bit sorry we recommended it, as they were expecting something better, based on the first experience. The same can be said for the service. First time was terrific, the 2d time we were served and then abandoned for the remainder of the duration of our meal, had to pour our own wine throughout, and couldn't flag a server for anything we needed-- including the check when we wanted to leave. (Both times on a weekday evening.) I do think they bring value to the community, and especially to all the residents who live on or near West Avenue neighborhood. I look for local restaurants to support and like being a "regular." I wish Oliver's was more consistent, which would win my continual patronage.

    Food okay to good for anytime dining — service was terrible had to go out nadie to hunt down service personnel After waiting for 40min to order— the waiter was aggressive and said they passed by once or that they thought We We’re waiting for someone else Rather tha. Apologizing — seemed 3 Waitstaff emerged at once from the kitchen where they had all been gabbing on a slow Night

    Food was great, but service was the complete opposite. We dined here on Mother's day and I understand that service is usually subpar on holidays, however I think there was much room for improvement. For most of the time we were there our server was missing, I noticed other servers tending to their tables every so often but we were very unlucky with ours. Our waters were never refilled and when we finished our cocktails midway through the appetizer no one ever came to ask if we would like a refill (missed opportunity for the restaurant to make more money). About 5 minutes after placing our dessert order we were advised that they were out of the dessert we ordered so we just opted for the check. After about 15 minutes of waiting for the check I decided to walk to the host and ask where I can pay; the host hunted down our server and gave her my credit card. it took about another 5 minutes for her to come back with my card and while I was waiting, I noticed that the table next to us was being served the exact dessert that we ordered and were told was out. I didn't inquire further about this because at that point we just wanted to leave. The food was great but my experience with the service was bad enough to keep me from returning to Oliver's Bistro.

    Oliver’s is a terrific restaurant for us Miami Beach locals. I have enjoyed Oliver’s for many years now. You are assured very good food and friendly and efficient service. The menu has so much variety, of dishes you find nowhere else…..from a delicious mussels with sausage to a fine chicken schnitzel. Oliver’s is a special place.

    A waiter can make or break your time at a restaurant. I used to come to this restaurant all of the time (it was my usual spot). Service was always top-notch. Lately, not so much. This time BAD beyond belief! The waiter (Manuel) was so downright rude, it made the entire experience of eating there terrible. It's quite obvious that he hates his job and is just going through the motions, but honestly, I don't think I will return.

    Oliver's Bistro was a great way to spend a quiet weekday dinner. Staff was attentive and friendly, food was well-flavored, fairly portioned (and priced) integrating really good ingredients and topped by a well-curated wine list. Dog-friendly outside and a/c-friendly inside. It's a great neighborhood spot to share with friends, or even to have a meal just by yourself. Reminded me of living in NY and being a regular at your local, consistently good eatery. Definitely will return. :-)

    Oliver’s is one of my go to places when I want to have a delicious meal and have a chat with friends visiting Miami Beach far from the madness on Ocean Drive. I had the special of the day which was chicken gyro and it was delicious. As always the wait staff there are attentive and friendly. I’ll return again soon.
