We were a party of six and had a perfect table for easy conversation. Our server, Steve, was friendly and efficient The bartender, Jessica, made perfect cocktails for us. We always enjoy ourselves at Olesia's.

Pros: The food was excellent - the filet was probably the best I've had in a long while. The portions were sufficient and the ambiance was nice Our waitperson was charming and attentive.

Cons: We went there for our 40th anniversary dinner thinking it would be a quite, upscale place. To our disappointment, it was rather loud compounded by the two couples at the next table laughing, yelling and shrieking. We couldn't wait to leave.

Olesia’s is a must stop if you live in the Cleveland area. The decor of the restaurant is beautiful. You feel like you are in a southern restaurant. The food is amazing. Olesia’s has something for everyone. I got the Olesia’s Platter which was a stuffed cabbage, kielbasa with sauerkraut, and a pierogi. I felt like my grandma made this, that’s how good it was. Make sure to save some room for dessert. I got the Elvis cheesecake which had peanut butter and a banana. It was so good that I asked the waiter if I could bring home the rest of the cheesecake.

Food was mediocre. I do not recommend the “crab” and lobster chowder. There was no crab in it. It was made with imitation crab (pink dyed fish sticks) and I didn’t taste any lobster. The risotto wasn’t creamy. It had been made earlier and was clearly in the pot but was dry. Also tried The pierogi entree and that was good. I don’t think the value was in the pricing. Not likely I will be back.

The food was fabulous, but my feet were extremely cold because the parking lot was unplowed. And there was no path to the door.

The food is always delicious at Olesia‘s Tavern. The portions are large. I am a big eater and I still took half of my beef stroganoff home. The setting is very eloquent. Our waitress was attentive but not bothersome at all. I believe Alessia‘s is fairly priced for the quality and quantity of food that they offer.

My niece enjoyed the beet salad. She had the delicious lobster bisque, then stuffed cabbages. I enjoyed my scallops! Food was plentiful, tasty and we’ll both enjoy the next day our take home. Can’t wait for the next time.
The staff was very attentive also.

All around just a wonderful night out! Food, and entertainment was great. Olesia & Joe came around and made sure all was just right. Made sure they introduced themselves to the table. Not to many owners do that on such a busy night. The lobster bisque is to die for. Highly recommend a visit!

Famiy dinner . It was wonderful. All 5 of us had different meals. All were great, however, after tasting a bite of each, this was our ratings: #1 sea bass, #2 short ribs, #3 salmon , #4 pork Schnitzel, #5 Beef Stroganoff. We also had for appetizers, beef tips, poblano peppers, smoked salmon all enjoyed. Tried several drinks, surprisingly the beet martini was very much enjoyed. Our server was awesome. A delightful evening enjoyed by all!

Seven diners and seven satisfied customers. The only negative was the garlic butter which was too garlicky.

Steve was our waiter (and it seemed like he was everyone's waiter too). He did a marvelous job attending to everyone's needs in spite of having so many tables to wait on. The food was great. The restaurant was beautifully decorated. And we had a nice evening visiting without feeling like we had to rush out to turn over the table. It was great! Thanks!

The bar had a great selection of bourbons and ryes and the bartender was excellent. The service at the table was B plus but the food was not quite as good as I have had there on several occasions before; but I will definitely go back again.

Food is excellent. Priced high for lunch.
Service was excellent. One frustration, is the Sandwiches came with salad or fries. It also said add a soup for $3. My sandwich was $17. I decided to add the soup. When I got the bill the soup was charged at the full $8. The waitress said the intent was to substitute or upgrade to soup. That was clearly not what the menu said. I suggested they reword the menu.

Food was excellent! The seat of the booth that we sat in was worn out and lumpy. We sunk way down. It was uncomfortable and hard to sit up straight. The bartender was our server and was very busy behind the bar which is understandable however, she did not make it back to our table after giving us our check so we had to flag someone down after a long time to pay.

Beautiful place, unique food. We ordered 3 appetizers: Deviled eggs - they were creamy with a touch of horseradish which was a nice touch. Hungarian Peppers had way too much red pepper flakes - they were very spicy. The spiciness should be disclosed on the menu. Meat pies were also good with a flaky crust. Two of us ordered soup. Chicken Paprikash was good but very thick; it could have been hotter in temperature. Borst soup was very good. Our entrees were crab stuffed salmon - very good; breaded pork chop - huge portion and good, and cabbage rolls with tomato sauce, also good. They added a 20% gratuity, which was kind of a surprise for 4 people. That should be disclosed. Also, this place is a little overpriced, but worth going to for something unique with a unique menu.
