Great place! As a vegetarian, they have lots of options. Loved the food! Patio area during summer is awesome! Great environment!!
Oleana is worth the hype. Every last bit of it. Oh my gosh, I'm OBSESSED!!! Everything on their menu is delicious, the service is always incredible, and it's my favorite restaurant in Cambridge...actually, in all of Massachusetts. It's AMAZING! Like blow your mind out of this world, INCREDIBLE!!! The flavors are always on point and every dish is well-executed and features an array of colors, textures, and flavors. The dishes are beautiful, and so so so delicious! Just go and order a bunch of things off the Meze menu. You won't be disappointed. The staff is also super friendly and eager to help with the suggestions! It's pricey, but treat yourself because Oleana is worth it! Pro tip: they hold two tables open for walk-ins. If you go right when they open, you'll be able to snag one of them without a wait!
I think many of the reviewers here are trying to justify an expensive meal..or have never eaten Mediterranean food. My boyfriend and I don't mind splurging on good food once in a while, but the price to portion ratio at this place is almost offensive--the mezze plates are around 15 dollars for a few bites. If the food were truly fabulous, we wouldn't mind spending the money. Alas, it's fairly run-of-the-mill food--even the sultan's delight, which many people rave about, was tasty but not mind-blowing. I think the small portions psyche people into thinking the food is something special. Go get some shawarma elsewhere, man. You'll even feel full after! The desserts might be great--we had had enough at that point, and we were too hungry to risk another bite-sized portion. So we went to Christina's for ice cream, which I do HIGHLY recommend. And if you want to go to a fancy meal, get amazing pasta at the bar at Giulia for the price of two bites of meat at Oleana. For what it's worth, I'm from the area, and I think this restaurant used to be good many years ago. Not sure what happened, but it's a shame.
