My new friends picked this place. What a SPECIAL find. The food & service were exemplary. We ordered salads to share to start. DELICIOUS! We selected for ENTREES scallops & steaks. DELECTABLE. Portions are large & made with quality ingredients. We wanted dessert but had little room remaining. Carrot cake was selected to share. Delirious! For us it was pretty far to travel, but well worth the drive.

Great little place in a charming town. We didn’t know it was restaurant week in Bordentown. So we had a choice of three menus. The mushroom soup “of the moment” was a hit. The Bahn Mi turkey and house salad were recommended by our server and was a hit. Oysters were ok. Fries were herbed and good . No room for desert. Don’t forget it’s BYOB and parking can be a challenge.

We stopped here on the way back from the base and decided it would always be our lunch spot when out that way. Twice we tried the most delicious burgers, something we don't usually order but we heard were delicious here. In March, M tried the special which had corned beef on it! The service is friendly and it is a BYOB.

I have been to this restaurant many times and have always been very pleased. This evening was very disappointing. Service was not good. Service was very poor. Good was very mediocre. The menu was very different from the norm. Mostly fast food type food. We ordered one appetizer which was ok. The wait staff seemed to ignore us most of the time we were there. One entree was a steak which was ordered medium rare came well done. The other entrees were very mediocre at best. When we told the server that we we’re not happy with the steak she seemed to have an attitude that we had complained. The entree was taken off the hill however when she brought the check she basically threw it on the table and walked away. Never came back to see if we needed more water etc.. I was very disappointed in a place I held to higher standards. Sad to say but don’t think I will return.

Went to Oliver A Bistro for my birthday brunch with 6 peeps on a sunday. What a great menu and the food was awesome. I don't have one complaint. All the food was fresh and the enjoyed the options available and it was hard to pick just one. BYOB. Those staff hustles and its busy, small, but they did deliver. Don't hesitate to visit and bring your vodka or prosecco to mix with their orange or bloody mary mix!!!
