Oleana Restaurant Review

My Opinions: It's been awhile since I've been back even though I always have a good time and good food. I find the restaurant cozy, perhaps a bit cramped, and it's not necessarily convenient for me to get to, but I do like it when I go.  They do have great outside dining in the warm season - Service is casual and friendly with a working knowledge of the menu (you'll know why that's important if you've been there before) – their newest young member of the family is the bakery & cafe, Sofra (another place I like very much as well).

Some Food/Drink Tasted: Armenian Bean & Walnut Pâté - Whipped Feta with Sweet & Hot Peppers - Sultan’s Delight - Flatiron Steak - Rabbit Buried in Vermicelli - Nougat Glacé - Salted Butter Ice Cream

Elephant Walk Restaurant Review

Elephant Walk
My Opinions: Food is tasty, but some of the flavors are a bit too strong which makes me more tentative about trying different dishes there – The service is good and the ambience is dim and romantic, so it makes for an interesting date spot
Some Food/Drink Tasted: Salade Croquante au Bleu – Steak Grillé et Gratin Dauphinois – Poulet Rôti et Gratin Dauphinois – Khar Saiko Kroeung
