THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Oliver's Restaurant Review

: As the sign proclaims, Oliver’s is meant to be uncomplicated, “a good place to eat and drink.” A somewhat odd theme of “Oliver Twist,” however, is used as a complicated means to decorate the interior. Posters from different film and stage productions line the walls, while staff uniforms appear inspired by the Disney film “Newsies,” with plaids, button-down shirts, suspenders and driver’s caps at play. The menu includes appetizers like grilled asparagus on radicchio, topped with a fried egg, alongside a much heartier English stout stew of slow-cooked baby carrots, potatoes, filet mignon and puff pastry. Crispy fish ‘n’ chips are made with Boddingtons, a creamy English beer, but, unfortunately, the fries are overly greasy and soggy. Jidori chicken can be either roasted or fried, and a respectable tender lamb shank is served with wild mushroom risotto. Gooey homemade cookies can be washed down with a blend of vanilla ice cream and whole milk. A California-focused wine list offers ten selections by the glass and a handful by the bottle.
