I will not be back

I am so disappointed. Bolete used to be my favorite restaurant and we used to speak very highly of it and tell everyone to go there, but it is really changing. Perhaps they got a little notoriety and it went to their heads? I don’t know. I do know that I will not return. Some of the food is really very good, some fair. Their prices are too high and in some cases misleading and a downright ripoff (do NOT ever get the wine pairing with the chef’s tasting menu!). I also notice less attention to detail (bringing the wrong food, drink, or improperly timing selections…they also forgot to acknowledge my birthday last time even though my husband had made that request). The last meal I had there was $550 for 4 people…for that kind of money I expect excellence, not average. When I tried to bring some of these points to their attention on their comment card, I received a pointed reply dismissing my concerns as my own “misunderstanding.” Try someplace else.

Bolete Main Dining Room

Silly affectatious name

Been to the dining room, going very soon to eat at the bar. For the Lehigh valley, a fancy/fussy/romantic treat this is a pretty nice place. Food is rather good, excellent for the area, but seems a little bit is missing here and there.

A seared Foie Gras appetizer was very small and grossly over-cooked, yummy nonetheless, but sad. See dish review.

A lovely arrangement accompanying the Dayboat Scallops was beautiful but lacking. It needed something else like Panceta blocks or unsmoked bacon chunks instead of the terrible texture breaking addition of Pomegranate seeds, a major culinary faux pas, indeed. also, the promised brussel sprouts were actually 1.5 of them deconstructed and almost used as a garnish. Serious vegetable eater here, so very, very bad mistake again, two in a dish … but scallops were first rate.

Seared Foie Gras

A tiny, way over-seared double Iota of very good quality Foie Gras, I wanted to cry. They do warn you about eating undercooked food and disease and then don’t let you risk your life. Complete with Scholl’s Farm apples, peanut brittle, cider reduction, apple, gastrique, arugula, sourdough toast it was disappointing because it failed to deliver a properly cooked piece of the main ingredient and the plate got way too busy.
