The menu is described as a journey and it's not wrong. From the attentive service through the 16+ 'courses' you are treated to a journey through the mind of a stellar kitchen. Attention to detail is notable across everything from the second you walk in the door to the moment you leave. Incredible.

The "Journey" is around 18 courses (we lost count) of beautifully prepared and presented mini dishes. There was finger food, exotic fish and meat as well as vegetables from their estate. Flavours were interesting and unusual - great fun as well.
Service was attentive and friendly. Highly recommended.

I had to admit that when I first heard about their "Journey" tasting menu, I thought the name a bit pretentious. But it's only pretension if they can't deliver, and at this point I can only say that it was truly an incredible experiential journey. My wife and I had the Journey with prestige wine pairings.

Olo has done a masterful job of selecting complementary and blending flavors throughout the extensive experience they offer. There were many nice touches throughout the evening -- for instance, a fine vintage port and an aged Bordeaux served in minute (literally eye-dropper) quantities, just to contribute a burst of flavor perfectly complementing their respective courses.

Every surprise -- and there were many -- was a pleasant one. Michelin, where is the second star??

On the night we visited, only their 16 course tasting menu was available. 16 courses may sound like a lot, but they were mostly small and manageable. Although the courses were relatively small, we certainly did leave the restaurant feeling full and hugely satisfied with one of the most wonderful meals I have ever had. The bread course in particular is noteworthy and is one of the best. I won't describe it here because of the fun and surprise that awaits, but suffice to say I and my companions have never had such wonderful bread. Although the whole experience took around 3 hours, we never felt like we were bored or left alone too long. Many of the courses were unusual, either with respect to ingredients or preparation. All were visually appealing and photogenic. Of course, you cannot eat a picture, and the best part was that every course was positively wonderful and tasty. Such culinary excellence does not come cheap, and with two bottles of wine, the total came to around $200 per person. Nonetheless, our dinner at Olo represented one of the best meals we have ever had!
