The inside of this converted original stage coach stop is very warm and cozy. The area where we were seated shared the room with the bar, at first it was lovely and quiet, but around 8pm the bar started filling up and it became unpleasantly loud. There was another dining area and in the future I would request sitting in... More

Was once Bethlehem's premier dining location. Good food and great service. Sadly, service has declined as has the quality of food. It seems once word spread of this tiny hidden gem they stopped trying to woo their guests. I have been coming here for years, and each time it feels less and less special. During my most recent visit, it... More

Superb restaurant in an old inn just shy of Bethlehem. On entering I was given the option of the dining room or tavern, which both serve the same menu. There's about 10 seats available for walk-ins at the bar (a place I could see myself frequently). The first courses ranged in size from shared plates to individual sizes. I suggest... More

We have been to Bolete many times for brunch and always very good. Always look forward to their tuna tartare which they do different every week. Dave had their soup of the day (squash) I believe it was and their salad which he loves. I had their tuna tartare and their eggs B again both wonderful. They do have a... More

We drove two hours to meet friends and have Sunday brunch at Bolete. It was well worth the drive! The food was delightful--delicious and perfectly prepared and presented! The decor was eclectic and nice, and we were just pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. We hope to be back! Also, it was my husband's birthday, and they put a candle... More

Words can't describe this cozy resturant. The service is amazing, the food and drinks are the best I've ever had, and the atmosphere is intimate. You pay for the quality of your experience so I'd recommend making it a special occasion!

I am the planner in our family, so when my husband told me we were going to Bethlehem and he had booked a hotel and brunch location I was cautiously neutral about the endeavor. He hit it out of the park with Bolete. The service was gracious and present but never overbearing. The dining area was peaceful with a hint... More

I previously authored a harsh review of this place because I felt it's meals were solid on quality but lacked creativity. Well, for whatever reason...maybe because I've enjoyed their other place...Mr. Lee's...or 89% of the LHV restaurants are a terrible value...I gave it another try. I'm glad I did. My plan was to keep it simple...a few drinks...the oysters to... More

A little touch of French countryside. The owners, the staff, and ahhhhh.....the food. I've been to brunch, I've been to dinner, I've been to early dinner in bar where the happy hour items rock. If I lived in town I would be there every week. I'll be back......

I had an amazing experience at Bolete: some fine staff coupled with gourmet, delicious cuisine meant everything was top-notch. I ate at restaurants all week while visiting Bethlehem and this was definitely the best. I literally have no highlights from this meal because everything was so wonderful.

Thank muz4now
