    Had an excellent salad with beets and goat cheese......good value for the money....had the plate with pierogis, stuffed cabbage and kielbasa and it was okay, but in all fairness, not something I would normally order.....I would go back since there were other options on the menu that I would like to try. Dining on the pation\ was very pleasant on a lovely evening.

    I was really looking forward to celebrating my 2 year dating anniversary with my man last Saturday. This was my first time at Olesia's and heard great things. We sat out on the beautiful patio and everything was going well. We shared mussels as an appetizer and they were really good. We also each had a glass of Prosecco with it. We then ordered a nice Chardonnay that our server recommended. I also let the server know that I am lactose intolerant. I ordered the sea bass, which is my very favorite fish. It came with either couscous or mashed potatoes. I was informed that they were out of couscous and of course, couldn't eat the mashed potatoes due to my lactose intolerance. The waiter, Steve, recommended extra vegetables or their roasted potatoes. I opted for the potatoes. When my meal came, the sea bass was as small as I have ever seen. Usually sea bass is a nice size filet and maybe an inch thick. This was the size of a hamburger, and the thickness wasn't even 1/4 inch. Total disappointment, especially since it is $38! I then saw the potatoes, and they had white flecks all over it. I tasted one, and it was garlic, but thought I better ask if there was also cheese on them. Sure enough, there was parmesan cheese and garlic and so they took it back. I was then informed that they ran out of potatoes, so my dish came back with a few asparagus, along with the few green beans that came with the meal, and 2 thinly sliced discs of zucchini. The general manager came over to apologize, which helped. He then offered to take care of a dessert for us, and then said, "Oh, right, you can't eat any of them because they're dairy." The sea bass did taste really good, even though I was finished in a few bites. I thought the manager would've offered to pay for our Prosecco or coffee or something, but that offer never came. It would've been the right thing to do. My friend's dinner was excellent, and with no issues, you'll love it.

    With it’s Ukrainian roots, the menu has some wonderful offerings that I’ve never tried before. We enjoyed exploring. The decor is beautiful. It was a tad chilly but we were there very early so dining room hadn’t filled up yet. Bring a sweater.

    We were celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary. When i made reservations through open table, i made note of that. I received a response from the restaurant that I should notify our server. I think this is easily something that can be and should be conveyed in advance. It feels awkward. In any event, our server was so rushed and so very disinterested in our table that I never did inform him it was a very special day for us. I’m disappointed, very much. Now that the negative is said…our meals were delicious!!! Best pork schnitzel we have ever tasted! Olesia’s platter gave us a sampling of pierogis, kielbasa and kraut and cabbage rolls. Superb! I would recommend mushroom sauce v tomato sauce. Decor is elegant and inviting. We will be back!! With friends and family, next time!

    Food was good, as always. Server was friendly, but not particularly attentive. But I was shocked when the bill came that, not only had the meal prices gone up, but there was “checkout fee” and “pop tax” added. The “checkout fee” was explained as a credit card transaction fee. Not sure what the “pop tax” was, but pretty irritating when the pop itself was $3 and we had to track down the server to bring a refill. At what bills itself as a fine dining restaurant where the lunch prices average $25-35 per meal, it’s ridiculous to have not only the prices raised, but see these surprise extra charges. Credit card transactions are a cost of doing business, especially at this price point. It is irritating to be tricked into paying even more when the bill comes. Although we like the restaurant, it will probably be quite a while before we go back.

    Staffing issues have hurt. I was excited to have dinner in the speakeasy as I made reservations specifically for that room, however, when we arrived they said that room was closed due to staffing- that would’ve been nice to know prior to our arrival. Bar team didn’t acknowledge me for a good 15 minutes (not even eye contact!!) and I was actually sitting at the bar (which was not full)! When they finally did acknowledge me (after I finally waved them down) it was clear that I was putting them out by ordering!!

    outstanding food. Like many restaurants, short on help. Feel bad for the waitstaff. Must have been short at the bar as well. Our cocktails came out along with our salads. Air conditioning did not appear to be working. Sweat was beading up along my back and brow. Ice melted quickly in glass of water. I would recommend coming before 5pm if possible

    Loved it but don't go if you are in a hurry. Tuesday at 5:30 pm it was very busy. We ordered a drink and an appetizer each (2 of us) and got drinks at 5:50, food at 6:15. But the food was great, outdoor patio is wonderful with canvas roof and roll down weather protection and everyone was friendly and helpful, just overworked, I think.

    We had a wonderful dinner on the patio. Its large, spacious and most importantly, shady on a sunny even. It’s beautiful! We sat next to a speaker, so that was a little loud, but I’m sure it would have been a little quieter if we weren’t right next to it. Our waiter gave us plenty of time to review the menu. We ordered drinks, salads and dinners. The salads took a long time to get. Dinner was brought out 5 minutes after that. Way to soon. So, our dinners sat there while we finished our salads. I drank my water and was never offered a refill. Our meals were delicious! Overall a good experience! I would definitely return again!
