    For a date night for an old married couple it was a little too loud but the food was delicious, the staff very attentive, the atmosphere energetic. It was just a little hard to hear the waiter at times and a little too noisy for me. However, others obviously love it because it was a lively, happy crowd. If one is looking for a vibrant atmosphere and great food it is a great choice.

    I read about Oak in 5280 and was excited to try a Boulder restaurant on the list. What my wife and I found was a good restaurant but not a great one. We've hit many of the 5280 top 25 restaurants and we felt this one was not quite up to par. We were excited about many of the small/share-able plates but each of them were just fine, none were great and all lacked any wow factor. The octopus was actually not good, too oily, and we had to send it back. The only reason I gave them 3 stars on service was because our waitress took it back without hesitation. Other than this, our waitress was lack luster in providing recommendations and was just not the top level service I have come to expect at great restaurants where I'm dropping a lot on a great meal. I might try Oak again in the future but it will be a long time from now after I've had a chance to hit the other many great restaurants in Boulder.

    Would not go again, Food was much too expensive for what was served. Dish that was to take and extra 30-40 minutes was almost an hour late. Harvest Salad that my husband and I split consisted of 3 beats each, 4 stands of arugula or lettuce and a sliver of thin bread. Server spilled meat juices over our guests pants and restaurant was too noisy. Our guests put it perfectly: This was on of the most expensive meals in Boulder for a mediocre meal. I will not go again nor would I recommend it.

    Oak is our "go to" place in town. Special occasion, date night, friends in town, after concert late night. As a chef and owner of a food biz, it's really great to go somewhere and have great food, get great service and still be able to pay the mortgage. All while supporting the local private biz. We love Oak.

    The food is amazing here as always. We love the mix up of the small plates and shared plates and everything is always spot on. The service is great and my water glass was never empty. The only drawback is this is such a hot spot that there were several tables of the 20-something crowd just milling about which made the atmosphere more like a bar scene and less like a restaurant.

    This was a repeat trip to Oak, this chef continues to perform at a high level. Lemon sole, cooked just right and served in a lovely pesto butter sauce with delicate calamari. Two had scallops with chorizo, romanesco, raisins and curry and raved about it. Kale salad, cut into shreds, is delicate with shaved apples and candied almonds and a light dressing. We devoured the wood roasted brussel sprouts, which had a good amount of charring on them (tastes sooooo good). Contemplating dessert choices, the waitress insisted we have budino, she was right, a delicious, thick, pudding, total yum. It was completely filled at 6:30 on Thursday, the noise level was high, making it challenging to talk at times.

    Visiting Boulder again and working our way through the cities long list of great eating places. Oak was outstanding top to bottom. Great atmosphere (a little noisy), exceptional food and outstanding service. We had a beautiful window table to watch all the action on Pearl Street. Can't think of anything negative to say about this restaurant at all. Highly recommend you give it a try if you visit Boulder. Make a reservation though as this is a very popular dining destination.

    Our feeling was that the chef is doing a great job, but the rest of the restaurant experience isn't at the same level. The service was good, but slow, the music was a strange choice of rock barely audible over the noise of the room. The food was excellent but overpriced. $6.00 for a soda ? $25.00 for chicken ? As much as we enjoyed the shrimp and grits, the scallops, and the pork tenderloin, the prices will stop us from returning.

    The food and service at this restaurant is among the best we have found in Boulder. Creative flare with seasonal and delicious combinations. One pork dish was underdone on the meat but informing the staff it was well handled. One salt sensitive diner in our group thought salt was heavy handed in some things. But from start to finish an excellent experience.

    We took my parents to Oak at Fourteenth while they were visiting and we all had a lovely time. The beer and wine list is extensive and everyone had the opportunity to imbibe what he or she wanted. We ordered the hamachi crudo and shrimp & grits as starters and they were excellent! The shrimp and grits were a definite hit with my parents who said that it was the best they'd ever had, and they live in South! We also ordered the chicken and the scallops for our large plates and those dishes were outstanding as well. We will definitely be going back!

    There were some really great things about this restaurant. The service was great, the ambiance is nice and the meals were pretty good. My daughter's hamburger had some weird plastic melted to the side of it, and that was weird. My son's chicken nuggets were pretty good, but a little bland. The tator tots were really good, probably the best thing we had. My husband's scallops were good, except they were gritty. My bacon wrapped pork was really good, but the bed of hominy it was served on was pretty bland and boring. I would have much preferred some nice veggies. Here's the thing, this is an expensive restaurant, and I expect higher quality food for that price.

    We were lucky enough to choose to have dinner at Oak at 14th while on vacation in Boulder. Our dinner was excellent from start to finish. The cocktail menu was so cool! It is worth having at least one before dinner. We had the fried pickles for an appetizer and they were great. For dinner two of had the chicken, one had the pork, and my son had steak. We all cleaned our plates. The flavor of the oak fire for cooking was so good. The Brussels sprouts on my plate were to die for...yes, Brussels sprouts. Since we cleaned our plates, we did not have room for dessert. Everything was delicious, service was great and the visit to Oak at 14th was fun! Can't wait to go back!

    I felt like I needed ear plugs just to lower the roar of noise. It could have been the best food in the world, but the noise level (music, people talking over music, music turned louder, people talking louder, etc) make me just want to get out of there as fast as possible. Not a place I would recommend if you want to have a conversation.

    Oak at Fourteenth is one of a handful of 'go to' restaurants for us when we plan to eat lunch in Boulder. We can take our daughter, who is 27, and my Mother-in-Law, who is 85, and each of us can dine on the kind of food they prefer, from fried pickles to shrimp with grits. There are occasional slips, but they are rare and just part of the restaurant experience. The wine list is very interesting, comprising eclectic selections that may not reflect value but do represent quality. Service is consistently excellent. Reservations are needed, because this is a popular dining spot.

    I could not think of a better place to spend our anniversary. The cocktails, wine and food were exceptional. The cocktail list is unique and very creative. We all (4 of us) had a different dish and we could not decide which we liked best. We also had a Cab Franc with our meals that was out of this world. This is the 3rd time I have dined at this restaurant, and it has been outstanding every time.

    I have been here to celebrate my birthday 2 years in a row and I haven't been disappointed. The menu is always different and I love the chef's ingenuity with classic favorites like pork tenderloin or braised bass. Wonderful quality of ingredients and unique flavor combinations that I only wish I could mimic at home in my own kitchen! The service is always friendly so even though the food is upscale - the atmosphere feels more casual and inviting.
