Diner Reviews
  • "Very nice meal. A real hot spot. Noise level is high so hard to carry on much of a conversation. Wait staff was attentive. Nice evening."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Took a business associate to lunch here because I know it's a hit. Good, as usual, but air conditioning was a bit overdone! Noise level seemed a lot louder this time, but we definitely enjoyed the food!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I rarely compliment the chef, but I did when I ate here. It also helped that I ate at the row of seats overlooking the kitchen. I noticed the care they took with each entree and gave easy access to the chef. I had eggplant with a zingy, nutty tapenade, and the main course was expertly plated and surprisingly colorful. The bacon-wrapped tenderloin arrived in medallions laid in a mixture of beets, pearl onions and other veggies with a spicy mustard sauce. I'm not one for beets and onions, but whatever they did to boost that flavor was deliciously done."

  • "When your waitperson apologizes by saying that "it's really noisy in here" ... well, you can kiss any chance of a conversation at dinner goodbye. The food was good to very good, but the ambiance was REALLY LOUD! For me, that trumps the quality of the food when considering the overall experience for dining out. The bill for our party of four (including one strict vegetarian/non-drinker) was $300 (before tip). We did have a bottle of wine ($55 - which was among the least expensive bottles available). The cost of our meal may be "normal" for Boulder, but I don't see the overall value. There was not a single 'soft' surface in the main dining area. We won't be rushing back."

  • "Just had a very enjoyable meal at Oak. Tired a variety of small plates-all were incredibly tasty, well presented, had unique twists. The waiter took the extra time to split dishes for the two of us when it made sense-such as the salad courses we tried. Only complaint is that the bartender continued to engage and chat up some drunk obnoxious 50-something ladies at the bar who were loud and obnoxious. While this was great for his tip, the volume level of of snorts and barks coming from the trio was loud enough to turn distract more than just our table."

  • "Great place for a fun dinner out. Delicious cocktails, unique menu items, and great service."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The burrata and shrimp and grits are not to be missed. Service was perfect! Will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We celebrated our 34th anniversary at the oak and had an amazing dinner. We started with some of the small plates to share and ended up sharing the red fish. Also had a wonderful strawberry dessert. Loved the kale salad, shrimp and grits and pork belly (my favorite). Would drfinately definitely go again. Had great service too."

  • "Oak at fourteenth is a fabulous restaurant with great fresh food options - try the buratta! There are great choices of appetisers and entrees - something to please everyone."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Extremely noisy! Cannot have a conversation inside!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "From the ridiculously priced wine list (not a single bottle under $40....but plenty over $100) to the entrees, all of which were $25 or over, to the $13 salads (6 roasted beet pieces with a sprinkling of basil and cheese)....I will not be back."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We had a great lunch at this place! Service was excellent! Fried pickles to start which were wonderful! I had a noodle salad which was very good. My husband loved his turkey sandwich. Dessert was a coffee dusted/frosted donut which was also wonderful! Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "This is a very noisy restaurant, however the quality of the food makes up for it. The small plates are varied and not really small, good for sharing. The kale/ apple salad and shrimp& grits were outstanding. Try to get a patio (sidewalk) table if the weather permits."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "slow, slow, slow. Slow first contact with waiter, slow drink order, slow refills of alcohol, slow check delivery, slow pick-up, it would be difficult to say a complete lack of interest on the part of the waiter but I am willing to say a 99% lack of interest in our experience. Could this curly haired lad be a bad apple? The pretty well all-around ennui was obvious, hostess, bussers, food runners. As a chef for over 35 years I tend to give staff a break when it comes to "one-of-those-days". I am always explaining to friends who have not worked in the restaurants why what they think is bad service is excusable. My only explanation here: disinterest as an overall restaurant wide policy-no thanks. Weird think was that the food was great."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "House drinks were amazing. Bone marrow appetizer was pretty good. Dessert was a bit disappointing (both of them). Entrees were tasty, but portioning seemed wrong. I had probably too much food, while my wife's portion was a bit small. Overall, its better than average. I might go back, but its not at the top of my list to do so."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Excellent, innovative food and outstanding service. Appetizers were tasty but skimpy in portion size. Entrees were generous and flavorful. Wine list was not expansive but well chosen. Overall, a restaurant that I would have no hesitation in visiting again and recommending to friends."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Last time 3 of us ate all the small/shared-plate options. All excellent. This time, my husband and I split two small plates and each had our own entree. Even being nine months pregnant, I was able to comfortably finish the entree after sharing the starters. The "large" plates are healthy, normal size portions, not 'fast casual heapings' of food. The menu had some lovely new items on it - a parmesan custard with shaved asparagus salad, squid ink pasta with king crab and manila clams, bacon-wrapped pork tenderlion cooked to perfection. You just can't go wrong at this place. If you walk in, grab a bar seat by the wood-fired stove to watch the action happen as you eat. It's an excellent spot that's reliably awesome time and again."

  • "Excellent all-around find for two "food snobs" during our first visit to Boulder! Would highly recommend --"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xgx4k83zzc I gave the ambience a 2 due to the noise level."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Easily maintains it's place as one of the top 4 or 5 restaurants in Boulder. Not the place for an intimate dinner, in my opinion, but conversation is certainly not impeded by the lively atmosphere or excessive attention by the wait-staff who are well-informed and polite."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "There are no specials here because the menu changes daily. The food is always amazing. It is our favorite place to eat in Boulder."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "The food was superb, everything was unique and tastefully crafted in it's own way, each bite was a piece of Heaven! The cocktails were wonderful concoctions, blended to perfection. The service was exceptional. Turkey the best Fathers Day meal every:-)"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We came for our wedding anniversary and were blown away by the food. Great service as well. We loved the salted caramel pudding/ice cream desert. Spectacular wine too. Perfect meal and a memorable night."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "First time coming here for lunch, one of the best lunches in Boulder! The food was just stellar."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "I'll continue to return because it's a great restaurant, but it really just gets too loud in the dining room. I know they want it to feel energetic, but it's to excess. They should install something to dampen the sound."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We were seated and lots of hustle and bustle but no drink orders were taken until we flagged someone down after about 7 or 8 minutes. The restaurant is extremely loud. They also mixed up our order, just three of us and it took an extra half hour probably for us to get served. I don't know why we had such bad service. The food was good but we will probably not go back, as we didn't feel like we were being treated well and the prices are not cheap."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "This was the best meal we've had in Boulder. The food was incredible and the service was outstanding. The meal was perfectly paced."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Oak at Fourteenth is a restaurant everybody should try at least once. We had an amazing dinner. Food and drinks were outstanding. Freshness and quality of the ingredients are remarkable. The noise level can be energetic but the ambience is truly vibrant. Memorable!"
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Loved our meal! The pork shoulder and kale salad were great. I found it hard to hear at times the acoustics are not great, that would not at all deter me from going back tho. Also, very flexible on converting dishes to gluten free."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "There were 3 of us dining. 2 had entrees that were outstanding, but one said their meal, while good, did not rank 5 stars. The appetizer was definitely 5 stars. The best desert had by our party was the root beer float. This restaurant has highly creative food and it ranks very highly."

  • "Food and service were great, even down to the timing of the food arrival to rhe table. Atmosphere lively and exciting."

  • "We were looking for something nice on the later side of the evening, since our flight in was delayed. We found Oak at fourteenth and their excellent food! We ended up getting 3 appetizers, which were quite well sized and were stuffed. Quite delicious! They also have a creative and tasty selection of cocktails which we enjoyed."

  • "Frist time ~Oak smoke aroma lured us up Fourteenth to the front door where we were greeted by an extremely professional, refined, well-tuned staff. Enjoyed the bar while waiting for friends, impressive tempting extensive drink menu including house-made sodas. Shaved kale and apple salad was the best I've ever had while dining out. Shared the massive Wood Grilled Bone-In Ribeye for two which was perfectly presented on a carving board with all accompaniments. Cooked to perfected and decadent! Service was great, wait staff seemed to genuinely enjoy their positions while proprietor Bryan Dayton mingled amongst the crowd shining like the star he is! I do believe Oak on Fourteenth has made our most-favorite-list. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Great meal! Juicy Boulder chicken, farmed pork and halibut. Loved the eggplant appetizer and the Kale Salad is a classic always on the menu. Enjoy the Boulder scene- beware of evening showers on the patio."

  • "MY daughter and I enjoyed a great Sunday supper. Especially taken with the shrimp and grits."

  • "Oak has been a long time favorite, but we hadn't been for quite some time and chose Oak to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were absolutely wowed by the food. The appetizer was to die for and each of us had a main that was perfectly prepared and a wonderful combination of tastes. The restaurant even surprised us with a complimentary dessert for my husband for his birthday. Highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. Is a bit pricey for everyday."
