After trying various other places, we find ourselves always returning to our favorite--Oleana because the food is just fantastic.
The mezas--appetizers are particularly good. And during the summer, I would highly recommend going early to snag a table on the patio. Heavenly.

Oleana is such a good experience. The food is all so good, especially the burrata (only offered Tuesday and Friday), the Sultan's Delight and the Lamb and Grape Leaf tart. All of their food is organic and locally sourced-even their flour comes from a farm out in Western Massachusetts. The wine selection is great and a lot of the wines are also organic. The service was spectacular; we sat out on the patio (which is gorgeous), but when it started pouring rain, they made sure we had a space to move to inside. Highly recommend this for a special night.

Ate here with a group of 15 people. The room and table were very cramped. I know that this is a highly rated place, but not for everyone. The food, was very tasty for the most part. Everyone loved the dessert, which was baked Alaska. If this type of food is your thing, go for it. But check with others if booking for a group as most of ours left hungry because of the strange offerings and most were very spicy.

Oleanas mediterranean influenced cuisine is outstanding. All of the dishes our party had were well prepared and presented. Vegetarians will appreciate the wider than average selection of non-meat dishes, but there is plenty for meat eaters. It can be a bit cramped, but overall the experience was very good, and the wait staff very professional. Reservations are necessary.

Always crowded, but always delicious, interesting and well-presented. Be prepared to reserve weeks in advance. The vegetarian tasting menus are a treat but it is rare to find anything on the menu that will not be tasty. Street parking might be a problem but there is a lot across the street available for use.
