Been to Oleana a handful of times, and have always been happy with the meal.
We have dined several times and this was the least enjoyed. The food quality has gone downhill and the service was not up to snuff. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone. I am disappointed that such a once great restaurant ha lost its mojo
I have never had a meal at this restaurant that was not excellent, and tonight was no exception. Everything was great.
We had been anticipating the visit for about a month. I have Anna Sortun's first cook book, Spice, and love it. The wait staff is amazing-very knowledgeable and professional. The food is outstanding and ordering mezzo allows you to try a variety of dishes. Our biggest problem was that we didn't save room for dessert. We have to go back soon.
We like Sarma much better - the food is brighter and the presentation better. It was noisy and all, in all the drive to Somerville is much more worthwhile.
We have been going to Oleana for many years - always getting the veg tasting menu. The items were not as varied or inspired as in the past. Several were ordinary at best. The tables are way too close together affording no privacy - has the restaurant added tables?
Oleana was such a fantastic take on small plates. Familiar Mediterranean flavors combined in unique and interesting dishes all came together beautifully.
The food was excellent, the service was as good as the food. Only the lack of parking
was the only negative. Highly recommend.
Everything about our meal was distinctive, delicious, and perfectly executed: food, wine, service. My only quibble is how long in advance we had to make a reservation. Plus we had to reserve at an inconvenient time. But I guess that's the price you pay for outstanding dining.
Excellent food. Friendly service. Wines are very expensive and average wine list. Perhaps the best meditetranean food in Boston. Must do when visiting Cambridge.
