There is no place better than Olesia’s Taverne of Richfield. The food is wonderful, such a variety of foods to select I get some thing different every time and am never disappointed. This place is such a gem in the Akron/Cleveland area. Felt very safe during Covid. You have to go here, such a beautiful place with great food.
Their Thanksgiving dinner was amazing and the drink menu is outstanding. Such a wonderful, holiday meal without the stress and pressure of cooking all day. This will be our go to every Thanksgiving. Thank you for the impeccable service!!
A nice time was had by all. Good food and good drinks.
I finally got to go to Olecia's and wasn't disappointed one bit. I went with my son for my birthday and walking in ran into two friends and we ended up sitting together. The appetizer medley with salmon was awesome. I had melt in your mouth salmon for dinner, my son had a scallop and lobster mac and cheese dish which was so good. Our friends had a salmon dinner also and a salad(I don't remember, but she said it was great). Borscht was good. the upstairs restaurant was so elegant. Olesia did a fantastic job on the renovations. We ended up sitting in the casual Speakeasy bar in the lower level. A more fun place where you could go to hang out at the bar or sit at tables. Menu is the same as upstairs. I would love to go again sometime soon.
We had heard a lot of hype about their food from relatives. I was given a gift certificate for Olesia’s last Christmas which is really why we went there. Entrees were very good. Appetizers okay. Not impressed by the Ukrainian dessert. The waitress did not describe it correctly. We would not go back.
The food was really disappointing. I had high hopes but they really let us down. My fish had a very off putting odor. Not fishy but smelled like burned meat. It was very bland as well. My dates scallops were so salty they we alone not edible. Maybe they had an off night. I’ll try them again.
Shockingly irresponsible regarding pandemic mitigation strategies. I regret allowing myself to be seated and I will never return.
Awesome experience and amazing food. We highly recommend!
Great food and great service!!
Incredible good and ambiance!
I love this place. The comfort of home cooked meals and the wonderful decor . . . . .one of my favorite places.
the food was wonderful, but we had to wait for 20 minutes for our tablr, even though we had a reservation. Our waitress was pleasant and tried so hard, but was overwhelmed by all thentables she had. i think alot of people came without reservations and thry were seated on the patio, but then there weren't enough help to handle all the business. The food was wonderful.
Nice menu, a lot to choose from. Good size portions and reasonably priced.
I love going to this restaurant. My first time on fireplace side. Very noisey.Food came out very fast. Only a quarter way thru salad when entree arrived. No room on table with four people. Like eating in a booth much better. Going to miss the outdoor dining over winter.
We enjoyed the Stuffed Hungarian Peppers appetizer along with the Stuffed Cabbage, and the very filling and good Pork Tenderloin Schnitzel.
Care was taken for Social Distancing
Food was a little bland. I had the beef stroganoff
We ate downstairs in the pub because there was live music. The pub was remodeled and the decor was lovely. We were also impressed with the food.
Table was in middle of heavy waiter traffic! Would decline that table next time!
Nice visit. Food was good and service was good. Atmosphere is very nice and the renovations to the property have definitely made it a place to visit.
There was NOT a lot of social distancing in the basement. Tables/people were very close together. That was a concern. My sea bass entree was disappointing. Very bland and the risotto was undercooked. But service was friendly and efficient, even when they were busy.
Excellent, food ,service, decor. Not too pricey large portions. Noise level a bit noisy.
Very nice older setting. Very diverse menu. great food. Good service.
This is my 3rd time in 4 weeks. Disappointed in food quality since my first time. On one occasion I ordered lettuce wraps. The lettuce leaves could not be used asa wrap. Instead I made it into salad. Borscht was good on one occasion but not on my last visit. No beets or cabbage in soup. They used sauerkraut. My Chilean sea bass excellent first time but soggy and half the portion. It tasted as if it was frozen.
The patio was clean and everyone followed Covid protocols. The food was delicious. The service was pleasant but a bit slow to begin with.
Food is excellent. We ordered the stuffed cabbage with perogi and the schnitzel. Both were very good. Service was spot on. We will definitely go back.
Our reservations were early on a Thursday. The dinning room is absolutely beautiful! The Hostess who seated us what a charm.. The service was nice we were in no hurry and she did ask us several times if we were ready to order. We all had a fish dinner which was awesome and plenty of it.. I had there signature drink Beet Martini (ok I had 2). Always a enjoyment..
The food was superb, and our waiter was excellent! We really enjoyed being on the beautiful patio and the space heater kept us warm. We also appreciated the manager checking in on us at least twice during our lunch.
The food and drinks were amazing. We'll definitely be back.
Great! Definitely will be back!
I brought a friend to Olesia's, she had never been there since it moved to Richfield. The food as always was excellent. The soup flight is a unique way to try their soups. I had my smoked salmon plate and took home the pork chops with extra sauerkraut and pierogis. Yum!!!
Very nice restaurant. Food was good. Service was good. It was nice to see the old Tavern of Richfield being put to good use.
We visited Olesia's Richfield Tavern for the first time on Sunday for brunch with family. What struck us the most is the staff... Each very friendly, willing to make our visit comfortable. So we came back on Monday with friends for dinner. Same great service, great staff. Thank you
Prices are good food was just ok. The beat salad was a little salty, Beef Stroganoff was very good but did not like the beef shredded. The deserts were the best!
Excellent place has a 2 great bars wonderful staff and beautiful dining room and court yard highly recommend
Amazing food. Fantastic owner. Olescia is pleasant and warming. Some of the best home made food we’ve had in town.
Olesia is an amazing chef. The good is outstanding. Service is lacking and has consistently over my past visits. Difficult to find workers so I understand.
It was so sweet of her to come say hello to the table and have a little conversation. Fantastic place and just beautiful inside.
This place had an amazing remodel, it’s gorgeous and cozy inside. We went for lunch and had great service and food. We plan to go back soon.
Beautiful atmosphere, Great friendly, enthusiastic service, and amazing food!
Outside patio was very nice. Like the menu-well balanced to include Eastern European dishes and selection of seafood/fish. The remodeling is impressive and well done. Good luck going forward. Looking forward to a return visit.
Olesia's was good as always. The new location is fantastic. The food was the same as always great.
