While out of town visiting friends, I looked on Yelp to find a nice place for Sunday brunch before our ride home. Well, we couldn't have found a better place! First, the building is absolutely beautiful, and looks like it's been around since maybe the 1700's or 1800's. Next, the service is impeccable. The food was AMAZING, and so beautiful,... More

If you're ever in the area, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a dining experience at this incredible restaurant! We were delighted with the quality and freshness of our meals. You will be tempted by the range of choices - all farm to table and the freshest fish. Chef Lee is most talented and certainly delivered a memorable... More

Lovely old building, tasteful decor, and just the right music set the scene for a delightful dining experience. We are both veg and we're happy with the impromptu option the chef designed for us. Nice drinks list, though slightly odd wine-by-the-glass selection. Our server was earnest if somewhat green. Nice bartender struck the right balance between professional and warm. Overall,... More

We celebrated a special event with another couple...all four of us had been anxious to experience Bolete and we were not disappointed. Since we were early we sat at the bar for a drink. It was so cozy and friendly. The drinks were carefully crafted by an experienced mixologist and were just the way we like them. Once our table... More

My spouse and I dined at Bolete for dinner on a Saturday night in early May 2016. We booked our table using the Open Table reservation system, but reservations are also available via telephone. Reservations on the weekends are a necessity; we tried to book three different Saturday nights before we found a day that had availability. Bolete is open... More

There is not a set menu. The chef buys everything fresh that morning and then designs the menu for that night. Presentation was amazing and the food was spectacular. Servers were attentive and friendly.

We've heard a lot of good reviews about Bolete, so we decided to give it a try for our 20th Anniversary Dinner. What a great place. One of a kind drinks and menu. Smoked Trout appetizer and both the Halibut and Salmon with gnocchi entree's were out of this world, and the Butterscotch pudding left us wanting to come back... More

This is one of my all time favorite local restaurants. It's rather on the expensive side, so we save it for special occasions--but, well worth the price!!

One or the very best restaurants in the Lehigh Valley. The cocktails are superb. The butterscotch pudding is a must try.
