Over an hour to receive our food after numerous enquiries, and then arrived at inconsistent intervals. Food average at best.

We brought our overseas visitors to Northbridge to experience the atmosphere and enjoy a great meal. We had a order taken and then proceeded to wait for over an hour for the meal. No updates from the staff on the delay. We had to ask 3 times for follow ups on the delay. When the meals finally came, one was... More

We found this on the tripadvisor website and wandered over. Luckily there was a two available, probably would have been better to book. We had a starter and a pizza each. Freshly cooked with good ingredients. Probably best meal we had in Perth

We thought we would give this place a try following my daughters graduation. Service was good. Garlic bread to start was very good. I had the deconstructed caesar salad. Over cooked chicken leg, soggy croutons, a fried egg and some lettuce. Two children had prawn spaghetti. The dish included lime and that was the overpowering flavour. Rubbery prawns which I... More

Management response:

I am sorry to hear you had such a disappointing experience at Oliver's. We take pride in every single dish that is prepared fresh and by order and I am saddened at the below average service and quality of dishes. I will make sure this doesn't happen again and do hope that you will give Oliver's another chance. More

Over in Perth for the Hopman Cup and rented accommodation in James Street. On spare night from tennis decided to go to the movies and later dine at Olivers. What a great package. Olivers couldn't be friendlier and the food was excellent.

There were six of us that went here for dinner last night. It was chosen initially because they were in the Entertainment Book. Im glad we chose it because right from the moment we walked in the door the staff were friendly and placed bottle water on the table. It had a great atmosphere and there is a Wilson Car... More

We went here on a lazy Saturday lunch time and used the Entertainment Card to get 25% off and while the atmosphere is somewhat dark and dull, the food was excellent! Great fillet steak special and the European parcels were very nice!

Arancini and calamari as starters followed by the $15 Wednesday pizza special. The Arancini was the best I have eaten and the aioli fresh and home-made. The only improvement we suggest is an improved selection of red wine.

The menu did disclose the size of the pizza I ordered at Oliver's on James Street - I just didn't pay it as much attention as I did the toppings. When it arrived, I realised why size matters: It was huge! Now there's hot chocolate to keep it company. So far so good... I note Oliver's has won some awards!... More

I'm a 23 year old female and my partner 35. We attended without a booking for a spontaneous date night and we were seated immediately at a fantastic table by the window. Ambience was lovely, festive but not loud and the place felt romantic. Excellent decor and lit candles on each table. The waitress was a delightful young American who... More
