The first time we went to Bolete was because someone had given us a $150 gift card for our anniversary. Neither of us drink. Yet it cost another $50 out-of-pocket. Food was mediocre and the service was OK. Menu is very fru fru. They are very impressed that they are farm-to-table. I couldn't care less where the ingredient come from... More

We made reservations here while visiting our son at Lehigh University and we are very glad we did. The place is quaint, the service was top-notch, and I don't where to begin to tell you about the food. Starting with the dinner rolls and drinks and ending with dessert, everthing was delicious. My son had the scallops and my husband... More

First time eating at Bolete and we did the Sunday Brunch with some friends. We made reservations, which I would highly suggest because it was full. All of the food was delicious, from start to finish everyone enjoyed their food with zero complaints. Everything was hot and fresh. The food does take some time to come out so expect to... More

We have enjoyed several meals at this destination restaurant outside Bethlehem Each meal is a superbly crafted, with creative dishes using locally farmed ingredients. Last Tuesday we shared the Tasting menu with selected wines. Each offering took us in a different gustatory direction. An exquisite single oyster (not local) with a slice of shitake and fruit vinegar set the tone... More

Unbelievable menu with exquisite care given to each ingredient and each plate. Sadly, I am writing this review too late to recall all of the specifics, but have mentioned this place to many, and all that know this place agree it is fabulous. Please go have a nice drink from the bar first, then buckle up for a taste bud... More

Thank you to the Bolete staff for a wonderful anniversary supper. We traveled there after remembering a good dinner but many years ago. They did not disappoint us. They have maintained quality and service to the utmost. The menu is simple and fresh, truly same day freshness as the menu changes daily. Small but simply decorated...cozy yet open...this farmhouse is... More

Still basically undiscovered gourmet standout at reasonable prices. Inventive, creative, local veggies and meats. Good service in small setting where you can hear your friends. Interesting wine list. Bar is popular. Do not miss their Sunday brunch

We're from Bethlehem and have driven by a hundred times. We normally enjoy reservations but thought we would take a chance and stop in for a seat at the bar and they did not disappoint. the hostess was welcoming (opposed to the sometimes off putting "do you have a reservation" and the look of disappointment if you say "no") We...
