Everything on the eclectic menu is delicious. The seats are a little too close together but the food is worth it. During warmer months, the outside patio is cozy and wonderful and offers more privacy. This is no drop in place so be sure to...More

We organized a dinner for 10 people by email. I was apprehensive because it was a risk. I need not be. Everything worked beautifully. The food was creative and delicious, the staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Oleana lives up its reputation.

I think this joint you don’t play it safe. Unless you are familiar with the cuisine, the dish descriptors and invariably impossible to imagine and possibly off putting to the more provincial amoung you. Just pick by the main ingredient. Go with a chef special....More

My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant on a Friday night. It’s a good idea to make a reservation, although it seemed that walk ins were accepted with a long wait. The service was fantastic: our waitress introduced herself and made us feel comfortable...More

I left a nearby shopping mall in search of one of Trip Advisors highly ranked restaurants since I was in town. Trip Advisor didn't disappoint. As I arrived, some others were standing outside maybe 6 people waiting for a table at 830pm. I told them...More
