I'll use any trick in the book to go to Bolete, my favorite restaurant ... so on my birthday, I shared the experience with my family. Bolete is in an old stagecoach type inn with stone, wood and a fireplace. The food is individually prepared from farm to table ... and is an experience not soon forgotten. I grew up... More

Her parents are from NYC and go out a lot. They both agreed that this was one of the finest meals.. Excellent food and service. Menu was varied and very interesting. All of our... More

My friend and I decided to treat ourselves and try Bolete. Several of our friends bragged about the excellent food. We were not disappointed. My friend had asparagus soup and I had a few tastes. It was delicious and I don't care for asparagus. The service was friendly and very attentive. The restaurant is charming and inviting without being pretentious.... More

Seated 30 minutes after reservation time. Staff attentive once seated but food was slow in preparation. Meal was good but not of the quality expected after reading other reviews. Not returning any time soon.

First off, the service was outstanding. Warm, welcoming, gracious, efficient, professional. Secondly, all five of us ordered something different and we each loved our dishes. A truly yummy brunch. Though we were already in heaven having enjoyed muffins and treats from the basket they bring to the table. Beautifully presented as well. Thirdly, this restaurant is the ultimate definition for...

I try to get to Bolete a few times a year. I have never been disappointed, tonight was fantastic. I would truly recommend everything on the menu. The menu changes weekly and this place is true farm to table. You will often find some familiar items like the duck and free range chicken but the preparation may change. Try the... More

I cannot rate for meat. But, as a vegan, the accommodations are really bad. If you enjoy salad all is good. But, coming from Philly, there is no comparison. The chefs in Philly know how to feed vegans. My recommendation is for a better on hand ingredient menu for vegan/vegetarian. High price for not a lot in return. Sorry, i... More

My mother-in-law had not yet been to Bolete - so we got an early reservation and enjoyed dinner. Very attentive service. there was a 5-6pm price fix special of $35 which my wife chose. I had the bar oysters and beat bobby flay wings with a cheeseburger chaser. there was not a complaint at the table for anything.

This is a classy and enjoyable destination for special occasions. It is pricey but it delivers on wonderful flavors, interesting menu choices, good service and ambiance. Why didn't I give it an excellent rating? Because I have to compare it to restaurants I feel are worthy of top honors and this is just a notch below. That said, it's still... More
