I'm going there tonight on a date for my Birthday.... I've been dying to try it but I'm reluctant to try new places on my BDay as I have had bad experiences... like at Chez Henri which I REALLY wanted to try last year but was really dissapointed... there and at Casablanca as well.
Any other suggestions? Or, impressions of Oleana??

  1. Oleana is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. I've never had a bad meal there. The flattened chicken is delicious as are the hummus and grape leaves. Service is excellent too. Happy birthday!

    1. Thank you I'm excited!
      Is the atmosphere warm?? I only ask because for some reason I keep thinking of how 'sterile' the atmosphere is at the Elephant Walk... I'm looking for warm and inviting :)

      1. If you like coconut and ice cream, I would definitely recommend the baked alaska for dessert - so tasty and big enough to share. :-)

        1. Oh man I looove coconut :)

          1. The vegetarian tasting menu is INCREDIBLE there and good even if you aren't veggie :-) Be warned though that if one person gets the tasting menu and the other orders off the regular menu, that there is no synchronization between courses so it can be a little strange timing-wise.
