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

I must say this restaurant is nothing short of amazing. Starting from the entrance of the restaurant, to the seating, the ambiance, service, and most importantly the food! This is my third time coming here. I've had their brunch, tavern food and now finally their dinner, and I must say their dinner was AMAZING. I had the wings and the... More

Bolete offers an excellent selection of locally sourced American cuisine prepared by an award-winning chef. The staff is friendly and the service is exceptional. The restaurant is located in a historical building.

My second time at Bolete was as good as my first. This tiny, charming restaurant is always full. Their menu is always interesting and often unusual. If it weren't an hours drive from my home I'd be there more often. Excellent for a special occasion or a romantic evening.

I started with the Lentil soup. The large bowl came with just the vegetables. My girlfriend looked at the bowl a bit perplexed. Then came the hot broth poured on top which kept the vegetables crispy. It was fabulous. The Liberty Garden's Mixed Greene Salad was great. For my second course, I had the Cast Iron Seared Rhode Island Fluke... More

This is consistently an all around top notch restaurant. I'm always wowed by the variety of flavor combinations in every dish I've ever ordered. Very highly recommend. I just wish they could improve the parking lot a bit. It's uneven and often muddy.
