Oliver’s on James, Northbridge

Hi everyone,

Back in January BF and I went to dinner at Oliver’s on James before seeing The Motherf**ker with the Hat at the State Theatre. We were seated by the open glass windows which looked out on to the sidewalk below, giving us access to a nice breeze while we ate our dinner. I decided to have a Champagne Bellini while BF had a beer while we looked over the menu.

For our entree I had been eyeing off the baked brie so we decided to split the brie along with a plate of baked bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The brie was quite rich and filling however the breads were a good choice to accompany the brie as it needed something else. The bread was a hit between BF and I, however when you’re presented with freshly cooked bread it’s really hard to not impress us.

For our mains BF had a meaty pizza, that he could not wait to dig into. He was happy with the pizza and it turned out to be very filling. I opted for the gnocchi off the menu which also cape with a complimentary side salad. The gnocchi was well cooked and I was impressed with the flavours accompanying it, the side salad unfortunately was mostly ignored as I was too busy savouring the main dish.

I had hoped to grab a quite bite of desert however we were contently filled after the mains and instead opted to stroll slowly back to the theatre and perhaps have a drink there before seeing the show. The atmosphere of the restaurant was rather nice and we were both impressed with our meals. We would happily return again.

Until next time!
