The food is mouth wateringly delightful and so different from any other place around town. The venue is bit tight but worth it.

Have only ever been there for Sunday brunch but always very good. Sunday menu changes every Sunday. They may always have a pancake but it is always different, they may always have some of the same name dishes but they are always different then the week before. Go there a lot and never ever disappointed. They do have a bar... More

What a wonderful dinner we had last Friday at Bolete. The oysters were absolutely scrumptious! My duck was out of control! Would go back in a heartbeat!

We haven't been to Bolete for some time, due to many reasons mostly travel. Nothing has changed from the wonderful Greyhound cocktail to the best Butterscotch Pudding and everything in between. Great Job Bolete thanks for a wonderful dinner.

Call it a product of the internet generation, but in order to find a unique place for an anniversary dinner, I let the social media pick the place based on reviews. Bolete came back the undeniable winner. We meandered our way to Bolete from Bucks County to find a cozy setting with creaky floors and deep windows of an old... More

I was told that Bolete was a fine dining restaurant. I went with a group of people for a work related dinner. The appetizers (mostly shellfish) were ok. The main course was good. I had a roasted chicken breast (itwas ok) which had (I believe) shredded spaghetti squash underneath. I was having a hard time distinguishing what was what with... More

My husband and I love coming here...either for a romantic date just the two of us or for a double date with friends/family. They have some fun drinks to try on their menu and the food is always fabulous and fresh. We love their oysters! We get them every time we are there. We also have had their scallop entree... More

The inside of this converted original stage coach stop is very warm and cozy. The area where we were seated shared the room with the bar, at first it was lovely and quiet, but around 8pm the bar started filling up and it became unpleasantly loud. There was another dining area and in the future I would request sitting in... More

Was once Bethlehem's premier dining location. Good food and great service. Sadly, service has declined as has the quality of food. It seems once word spread of this tiny hidden gem they stopped trying to woo their guests. I have been coming here for years, and each time it feels less and less special. During my most recent visit, it... More

Superb restaurant in an old inn just shy of Bethlehem. On entering I was given the option of the dining room or tavern, which both serve the same menu. There's about 10 seats available for walk-ins at the bar (a place I could see myself frequently). The first courses ranged in size from shared plates to individual sizes. I suggest... More
