Every time we visit Bolete we are amazed by the cuisine. This last time we visited with a very well known chef and restaurant owner on both coasts. We told him and another restaurant owner from San Francisco that we thought the quality of cuisine was outstanding. We came on a week night without... read more

Can’t Wait To Try Dinner! A trip to Bolete has been a long time coming but scheduling and available reservations for dinner have been elusive. While that hasn’t been good for me, it is a good thing for Bolete! Fast forward to a decision to try brunch instead… Brunch reservations were easy! We arrived early to the old small house... More

When you step inside, you will be transported back it time. This restaurant was once a carriage house, and now is a quaint restaurant. Outside the building is a stone house, and inside a trip back in time. This is not the reason you will keep coming back. The food is farm fresh (the chef changes the menu everyday). The... More

This was my first visit to Bolete and I wish I'd gone sooner! The food combinations are exquisite and the service was perfect. I was in a party of 8 and we were tended to very well given our party was larger than the average. I had the asparagus soup, the soft shell crab as my main course (with the... More

I never ate at Bolete prior to May 2015. I had heard it was one of the best restaurants in the Lehigh Valley but it is by far the best! The service is top notch with attention paid to every detail including constant attention by the servers. In addition, the wait staff and bartender are so friendly and accommodating to... More

Be ready for a really lovely culinary experience. Be ready for small portions. Be ready for a big bill. Not for an average Friday night out, definitely special occasion restaurant. Reservation needed. Bill was over $100, 2 people, no drinks.

Decided to make reservations and take the hour drive down based on the reviews and was not disappointed. The fresh baked goods served at the table were delicious! My husband and daughter both had Eggs Chizmar while I opted for the Lobster Roll. We also indulged in dessert. My husband said that his carrot cake was the best that he... More

Bolete is our favorite restaurant in the Lehigh Valley. Excellent food and the menu varies often. Good service and friendly owners. It is expensive but worth it.
