I really love this restaurant. While the regular menu is always great, what really shines are the daily specials. They always include the latest fresh / in season ingredients and always pleases. The Sultan's Delight is especially fabulous and never disappoints.

This is my favorite place in Boston. I love the food. It's inventive, delicious, and full of vegetables. I can't recommend it enough.

I left the restaurant with mixed feelings. I love the food, but for the price, I'd expect to not be rushed out the door so quickly. Just rude. Most likely won't be coming back here for any special occasions...

This is a special place! It's traditional Mediterranean style food in tapas fashion. I went with a large group and ordered about 10 dishes to share. It was plenty of food, and it was all delicious. Standouts were redfish and lamb, but everything was unbelievable.

We went there on a weeknight. There was a line forming before 5:30. We didn't have a reservation but were seated right away. We asked for the patio. Charming except for an impending thunderstorm. The service was slow considering all the wait staff. I have blood sugar issues and needed btread and juice FAST. We flagged someone down and he brought bread, juice and filled our water glasses. My friend attempted to order a glass of wine, but he said he was not our waiter. Next a different waiter came by and read the specials. We thought he was our waiter but nope, she would be with us in a minute. It turned out to be more like five. When the wine finally did arrive we gave our orders. The food was good just expensive for such tiny portions. But what do I know. Charlies's is one of my favorite hangs. According to my friend, the Baked Alaska was indeed to die for. It was her treat so who was I to complain. I'm glad I went. I just wouldn't go again.

We visited Oleana on a balmy Thursday evening and were able to walk in and get seats on the outdoor patio right away! The atmosphere was very comfortable, relaxed, and conversational; the waitstaff was very attentive and friendly and the food was divine! We were a party of 3 and sat at a corner table on the far side of the bench and ordered all Meze portion plates. The menu was a difficult battle as everything looked delicious and very amendable to both vegetarian and meat options. We started with the crab croquette special atop a bed of fresh greens and the summer sangria which was white wine based and very tropical, harboring well balanced peach and pineapple. The sangria had a great balance of fresh fruit sweetness and was very refreshing. Next we fell in love with the Nettle Pie which was doused in a delightful red sauce that we soaked up using the house bread (which was also delicious!). This dish earned our highest recommendation. The Chard Sarma, Sultan's delight and Lamb tart were a great meat filled trio, offering tender delicious meats that were heavily but deliciously spiced. The Octupus Saganaki was a fun presentation with a solid grilled flavor and moist polenta. Finally, the Crudité presented a great selection of fresh, bitter vegetables that we probably should have tackled at the beginning of the meal as we were too full to fully appreciate the black garlic goat cheese. Overall, each dish was packed full of flavor and spices and the entire experience was comfortable and delicious! Finally, the bathroom tiling of mirror on the wall is super cool and worth checking out!

the restaurant is overrated! we heard much about it and decided to try it. the food was nice, but not more than than and definitely below expectations. all of the dishes were OK, nothing was either very good or very bad. the dishes are pretty small. service was also OK. I would not return there.
