    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    We each had a Manhattan, which was decent, but we probably should have gone with wine because that seems to be the specialty. The kale salad, and the pate were excellent. We also tried the shrimp and grits and the eggplant as the server suggested, which were very good and plenty filling. Really good sized portions, and we left quite satisfied! Thanks!
