Had a great time at Oliver’s. Was celebrating a friend’s birthday. I would go back again! The service and food was excellent. Vegan Food can be tasty and healthy!

We loved the food. Our server was nice but ended up not being that friendly. Not sure why. Maybe we weren't fancy enough, don't know. We will be back though and try again.

Excellent food regardless if you are vegan or not. I am not and I loved every dish. The outdoor seating is well heated and very comfortable with great service and great wine list, I highly recommend a visit to this as it is one of my favorites now.

Great food, attentive service and we loved the atomosphere. The only problem was the noise of the kitchen door. It made loud clicks as it opened and closed, if they just removed whatever hardware and just made it a swinging door it would be perfect!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary recently (married on Leap Day) and we’re staying in Santa Barbara at the Belmond. Multiple employees there recommended Oliver’s (we already had a reservation) which was good to hear because the service at the Belmond is world class. Everything about our experience at Oliver’s was brilliant: the table, the service, and especially the meal. We ordered multiple “shares” and main courses and are “family style” even if it was just the two of us. Fantastic culinary experience. We’ll never forget it.

We adore Oliver's as the only inspirational Vegan restaurant for miles. We go often and never tire of the excellent food and the artful food presentation on the plate. Love the deserts too! Veganism is good for your health and for the plant. Go to Oliver's to see what vegan food can be. Vegan food is at least equal of the standard American Diet and actually superior– if you believe the science it will make you health and keep you healthy. The SAD diet, not so much...

Non- vegetarians may shy away from Oliver’s, but the food is delicious and filling and you don’t even miss meat and fish. The patio is fun as is the bar, while the inside has a warm and inviting ambience.

Enthusiastic about the variety and presentation and flavors of the "small plates." We shared 4 and were very satisfied. We noted that outside doggies were laying by tables with a water bowl so seems that the outside allows for animals as long as they are not bothersome I presume.

The outdoor atmosphere was nothing short of amazing. Proper lighting and decor that seemed to match the food selections perfectly. Our food selections were all beyond delicious and this was probably the best vegetarian restaurant I have ever been to in my life.

Vegan's heaven, very well seasoned :) we had an awesome Valentine's Day dinner at Oliver's - shared 7 dishes (small and large), enjoyed every bite! Seating was tight (tables so close!) but this situation is to be expected at a popular restaurant on Valentine's. Service was smooth.

I will give Oliver's another try, this time for dinner, before I would recommend it. The crab cakes with corn were excellent! For the location and prices I would expect much more interesting food... having been vegan for over 25 years I have explored countless vegan dining options throughout California and beyond. Service and ambiance were outstanding, although we were a little surprised at the lack of background music.

Visited for lunch on a Thursday. Beautiful décor and small number of guests. Waiter was able to give us
lots of attention. We enjoyed our salad and soup. Think another choice of soup other than tomato would be nice. The salad at $20 was ample to split. We did dessert at The Scoop across the street. A v ery
enjoyable and relaxing time.
