We had an amazing dinner. Our cocktails and food were both outstanding. I had the sea bass and it was wonderful! It outside dining was a little different because of covid, but they did a great job!

Some of the best food I have had in a long time. We had the duck wings which were perfectly crunchy on the outside and tender in the middle, and the pea agnolotti with brown butter and pistachios which was absolutely perfect. The drink selection was also fantastic and our server Sarah was very knowledgeable and friendly and really made our experience fantastic. I look forward to going again!

Dining out on the extended patio was delightful. Our sweet server took all the changes in stride and provided us with a fun dining experience. As always, the food is perfect. On a warm summer night, we kept it light. Soup, salad and split a bubbly mac and cheese. Great wine and cocktails to explore.

It wasn’t bad it just wasn’t amazing. Price seems high for what it was even though the portions were really big. Maybe do smaller portions and do them better? Staff was the best part. Great service. Good location. Good wine.

Oleas continues to be one of our favorite restaurants! The food is unsurpassed and the cocktails are always first class. They have been hard at work through out this pandemic to offer top quality food for takeout, and now for unparalleled dining experience. We were there to celebrate my son’s birthday, and everyone couldn’t stop licking their chops, and fingers!!!

Still drooling over the baked oyster appetizer. We had to try it, and they were delicious. Our server was wonderful as well and the restaurant is adapting well to the new normal.
