Seasonal ingredients that are highlighted and prepared to perfection. A breath of fresh culinary air, a true delight to have in the Valley. Thank you!

After reading the glowing reviews we tried this restaurant. We were greatly disappointed between the walls which needed a new paint job to the long wait between the appetizers and the main entrees which the steak was served cold. The portion sizes were too small for the prices.

Each time I dine at Bolete, I am served a meal I've never had before...usually because of the way the meal is prepare and exactly what's in the dish. Asparagus soup in May is (I can't believe I even ordered it- didn't think it was my "style") so amazingly delicious. The butterscotch pudding is so amazing it is unshareable. Seriously.... More

Dave and I have only ever eaten Sunday brunch there. We have been there many many times for brunch though. It is an order off a menu not a buffet but the food is amazing. The menu changes week to week. They are a farm to table. I have never gotten anything there I did not think it was top... More

Bolete is our favorite restaurant, hands down. So much so, that the one time a month that we go out, it's the only restaurant we visit. They have the MOST delicious cocktails. And, the food is always a party in my mouth. What gets me about Bolete, though, is their service. They just get everything right in all the details........ More

Simply the freshest and highest quality ingredients skillfully prepared and cooked at Bolete. The menu is not large, but the chef will customize and also take excellent care of vegetarians. I have never been disappointed by a wine suggestion either. On Fridays and Saturdays they are very busy and service can be on the slow side but you will get... More

My hubby and I have heard nothing but rave reviews and FINALLY decided to try Bolete for their Sunday Brunch. The service was excellent. My husband loved his spicy Bloody Mary. As a huge fan of oysters, my husband was floored by the quality of the oysters. Very clean, cold and great flavor. My tuna tartare was the best I... More

Who knew tucked away in Bethlehem was such a great restaurant! My husband found Bolete via Google and a chef we know confirmed we should go. It was excellent. The wine deal you get as an early diner is excellent and they introduced us to a lovely new wine (for us). Everything from the bread through to dessert was terrific.... More

I was a bit worried when we our coats weren't taken, we were seated by the kitchen door and I noted a burned out lightbulb. But the rest was terrific if a bit noisy. The menu is printed and dated daily. The wine list is interesting - although the markups are more than 3x for the wines I know. We... More

Wow! What a breath of fresh air this place is. I've read several great reviews here about Bolete but was skeptical based on the quality of the other places in the area that didn't live up to the hype. We "only" went for brunch but I can judge from my experience that this is a very top notch establishment. The... More
