I went here in February. With the record snow fall in Boston, let me tell you finding parking was a royal pain in my bum! When I finally found a place to park, I was late for my reservation. Oh, well. They were very welcoming...More

Oleana is one of the best restaurants in Cambridge. Once you eat there it is very clear why people make reservations weeks in advance. The food is wonderful, the service is amazing, and the wine list is extensive.

By far Oleana is one of the top restaurants in the area. It turns out excellent food from a modest location in Cambridge. Their creative and understated use of spices has no peer. Indeed the chef has created her unique but very tasty American cuisine...More

Oleana can't be beat for the amazing combination of tastes that are combined into each dish. A modern take on Turkish and middle eastern cuisine, with a reverence for the vegetables. On our most recent visit, loved the spicy fideos, the borek of root vegetables,...More
