We've been here several times before and always thought highly of it. This last time, though, the food was really unremarkable. We had halibut with olive tapenade, beans (like kidney beans), dill, and crunchy pieces of fried something (like the bits left over from a bucket of extra crispy). I don't know who thought beans, dill, and olives go together, but in my opinion, they don't. But it didn't matter because you couldn't taste the olives anyway. All you could taste was beans with the crunch from the fried stuff. Twenty-nine dollars for crunchy beans is not a deal. The dessert was very good, but they used to have a root bear float that was excellent. It's not on the menu any more. Too bad.

fit for Foodies says it all! We took Mom to dinner and she loved it! Always get the kale salad- so delicious with thin crisp apple slices, nuts and light cheese crumbles-we love to order one and split three ways. We also three-way split the mushroom risotto- can't was it to go back for this new menu treat! My steak was delicious- not a hard thing to do but the accompanying spinach and farrow were tops- you will lick the plate! Mom and Hubby both enjoyed the halibut- crispy on the outside and so moist inside. Again, always a great sauce along side with some small veggies! Oak at 14th is a must do for Boulder dinner or lunch!

I was given a gift card for my birthday from friends who LOVE Oak, and used it on a date. They weren't wrong... the food is great! The service was fast (even on a busy Friday evening), and everything was very pleasant. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone looking for some well-made, interesting, and delicious food.

Superior dining experience. Colorado casual but fit for fancy if you're in the mood. Love the variety of drinks (being pregnant, I want a fancy drink too, just without the alcohol). Wait staff was courteous and attentive without being a nuisance. I feel I can say that, I waited tables for 8 years. We had a hard time selecting which dishes to enjoy, we'll certainly be back and look forward to more amazing flavors of future menus.

Just an outstanding place. From the moment you arrive you are surrounded by elegance and ambiance. The staff does a masterful job of taking care of guests. The bar serves a Manhattan that is second to none. Wine list gave many smiles to my guests. The beef tar tare and the liver pate' are must haves. I have never had better risotto. They take your complete order and deliver it in stages so it is always served perfectly. Highly recommend this place.

My wife and I eat out in Boulder, often, but this was our first visit to Oak at 14th street. Mostly because it is so popular, we had difficulty getting reservations.

We had a very nice time. The food was delicious, although they have a somewhat limited menu. We shared a dessert that was fabulous. But I won’t go back. Oak at 14th is part of the trend of offering delicious food and impeccable service at very high prices. The waitstaff is so keen on giving you “impeccable” service, that they are actually a nuisance and won’t leave you alone. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday, and we wanted to talk, and be leisurely, and enjoy our food - SLOWLY. The waitstaff were pouring our wine after we took a sip, thereby interrupting us, filling our water glasses after our second drink, thereby interrupting us, and whisking our food plates away the millisecond after we finished our meal. Two milliseconds later we were handed a dessert menu, and two more milliseconds passed before they asked about our dessert choices.

I enjoyed the food, it was excellent. But “impeccable” service can get in the way of casual conversation, romantic dinners, and just plain old fun. And I’d like to add, that “impeccable” service hints at pushing you out the door. I guess I’m old school - dinner at a nice restaurant just shouldn’t be so fussy where it interferes with a good meal, good conversation, and a good time.

I should mention, that their wine selection is rather expensive, and overall, the meal was just too expensive. I was shocked when I saw the bill: I added a nice tip, handed over my credit card - and felt cheated.

There are a LOT of restaurants in Boulder with delicious food and that are a lot more fun. And literally, half the price.

We came here for our 2 year anniversary dinner. The service was amazing and the wine was delicious. The chef that night must have had a heavy hand with lemon because almost everything we ordered was way too lemony. We got the Brussels Caesar, meatballs, pickles, mushroom risotto and the ricotta angolotti with king crab. The only things not over lemoned were the meatballs and pickles. We both really enjoy the flavor of lemon but this was overwhelming every other taste of the dishes. We would come back, but maybe for lunch instead of dinner. It didn't live up to the hype or the price we paid for our meal.

Both meals were incredible. Shared two different appetizers (mushroom tempura, truffle root veggies) shared a pork and a chicken main, finishing off with shared banana fosters. The chef here is a true artist. The flavors and texture combinations are amazing. There is so much going on in the desert and mains you know it is not just a cook restaurant. Service was impeccable, water never left empty table quickly cleaned. You really feel this restaurant creates a total experience.

We love the food at Oak and it didn't disappoint this time. The overall bill was eye opening high for 5 of us - but we knew it would be. The only disappointment was we were given a very hard time about not having a reservation for 5 - told us I only made it for 4 people and they nearly didn't seat us. Sat us at a small table for 4. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and she was only home for one more last night so we had to make it work.

We were very happy with everything we ordered including the fried pickles. The open kitchen and the slight smell of burning wood from the kitchen added to the atmosphere.

Make sure you confirm the menu at the actual website vs. the one here, since there are differences. Pork belly appetizer was amazing, as was the pate and fresh bread. My husband and I had the sea bass, which was good though not outstanding. The place was *crowded*, particularly for a Tuesday evening, and with such a small space the noise level was pretty high. Service was fantastic, and all servers were attentive, timing course arrival perfectly, often working in pairs to ensure the the entire table was served at the same time. All ingredients were fresh with obvious attention to attractive presentation. Definitely not the place if you want to have a close, intimate conversation, but a great destination for high quality food, service, and attention to detail.
