We are always on the lookout for something new and exciting and Oliver's fits the bill for both! Chef Greg Elkin's passion for food shines through in every beautiful dish he prepares. Oliver's
claims that they serve the best steaks in Hollywood and it's kind of hard to disagree with them. Located in the Grafton Hotel, right on the Sunset Strip in the former home of Boa, this super-glam eatery boasts white leather banquettes, gorgeous mirrors,
and metallic accents overlooking Sunset Boulevard. Our server Danielle, was fantastic and started us off with a couple of glasses of Mer Soleil Unoaked Silver Chardonnay ($14). This is one of my favorite whites but the rest of the wine
list is outstanding as well! The bread and herb butter followed and was absolutely delicious. We started with the Crispy Calamari ($11) served with fried lemons and spicy tomato sauce. This is some of the tastiest, well-seasoned calamari
I have tasted! The tomato sauce is perfectly spicy and truly complements the freshness of the calamari. Oliver's Caesar Salad ($10), a house specialty comes with crunchy pumpernickel croutons, freshly shaved parmesan, and romaine. Dressing is tangy
and works well. For dinner we had the 7oz. Petit Filet Mignon ($38) with Bleu Cheese Butter Topping ($2). Steak was tender and juicy and definitely earned the title of Hollywood's best! We also had the Lamb Chops ($32) rubbed with excotic spices, and
served with endive, dates, and almonds. Lamb chops were meaty, flavorful, and juicy. Mac and cheese ($10) was cleverly served in a crock with fusilli pasta and a light bechamel sauce with toasted breadcrumbs. For dessert we enjoyed the French
toast-like bread pudding with chocolate whipped cream. For a romantic, glamorous, evening, with fantastic, creative food, you have to try Oliver's. You'll be glad you did! Oliver's Prime Steakhouse 8462 West Sunset Blvd. West Hollywood. (323) 491-9003.
