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.

If you love to dine in the classic sense (meaning participating in conversation rather than reading your text messages), then go on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday and ask for the six-course tasting menu with wine pairings. Previous reviews have raved about Bolete's exceptional dishes. However, the chef added a dimension to the tasting menu that we had never experienced... More

The menu had some interesting items such as rabbit (which my husband loved). We had oysters on the half shell and a delicious cheese tray for appetizers. My son and I had ribeye for our main course and it was sliced and served over potatoes. I loved the presentation since there was no fat (ribeye tends to be fatty). Dessert... More

We were a party of four on a Thursday night. When booking the res we were offered the chef's tasting menu = $75 per person and plan to spend the evening. We were served six courses each, although the ladies and men sometimes got DIFFERENT offerings for some courses. So there was sharing and side deals. Amazing variety of ingredients... More
