Enjoyed a tasty meal at Oleana this week. We four opted for several "meze" plates, which I would liken to "Turkish tapas". Some were seafood, some vegetarian, and some beef or lamb and all were delicious. Oleana gets rave reviews for cuisine, and I will agree there.

Menu was very diverse and interesting. I had the halibut which was delicious, and dessert was out of this world. Great wine selection! I would... More

The restaurant has a varied and interesting menu - a little on the pricey side, but worth the money. The food is consistently good - tasty and unique. The dining area is pleasant, and the service is excellent too.

I find this restaurant to be overrated - nothing special. I've eaten here twice, both because I received a gift certificate.

Very interesting menu. The staff is very knowledgeable about both the menu and the wines. The food was very good and had unique flavors to me. Highly recommend the hummus appetizer and black bass dish. A little pricey but the food was delicious.
