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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

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!!!

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

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.
