one thing we always like about Oasis is browsing the attached book store before or after dining.

Great experience! We've been for brunch several times but just never thought about going for dinner. Very happy with the service, food (salmon was amazing) and price!! We will be back!

Four of us stop here regularly for dinner before attending SLAC performances. The Oasis is always reliable for quick and friendly service and good food. First time we've had Dustin for a server and we hope it's not the last. MichaelAnn and Lindsey are also excellent.

We were seating by the bookstore entrance outside of the main dining area, just the two of us. The cafe had this valentine theme and had decorated but sat us away from everyone, which usually I wouldn’t complain about, except the flow of of shoppers, employees emptying the trash, and the echo of the hustle around us was annoying. Lesson learned.

We had a delicious dinner. Our server also made stellar recommendations though the fixed menu was an incredible selection. We look forward to going here every Valentines Day.

After several friends strongly recommend Oasis, I finally went. The food was okay and the service was friendly, but I don't get the hype. Won't be back soon.

The salmon with arugula waa cooked to perfection. I substituted grilled asparagus to make the meal dairy free. Excellent flavor and texture combinations! The fruit sorbets were superb for dessert. Not too sweet and very creamy.

Been here many times, the first real disappointment. Fish was good, mashed potatoes barely warm. Beets chopped in tiny pieces--tasted like canned beets. Chocolate "decadent" cake was dry. Cappucino 85% foam, waitress not exactly friendly, never offered any sugars with the coffee, or offered us the specials. Very weird. Will think twice about going back anytime soon--so many other options available now...

What a fabulous experience! Our server Dustin was absolutely outstanding in every way and the food was truly great. We came for New Year’s Eve dinner and with a prix fixe menu, we weren’t sure what to expect in terms of accommodating several dietary restrictions (one gluten-free, one shellfish allergy and one vegetarian). Dustin was great and helped us all find great options that fit our needs and tastes. He went out of his way to be sure we all had everything we needed, including bringing some tasty gluten free bread, which for gluten free folks is always an unexpected bonus. The food was all really delicious form appetizer to desserts, and each of us left with a serious food buzz. Highly recommend!

Our server Lisa made the evening. She was attentive, very personable, knowledgeable about the menu and preparation of the food.
Something I have always liked about the Oasis, no matter how full they are the noise level is more than tolerable.

We are regulars there, mostly for brunch, sometimes for lunch or dinner. It's a friendly place and
comfortable to be in. The food is good, with some very good specials. Service is always excellent. Prices are reasonable. We like to take friends or family there.

Oasis has been a favorite of ours for a number of years. Excellent menu, great Vegan options and excellent service. The Tomato soup is the best anywhere. We always start with that. I highly recommend Oasis!

This was my second time there. The food just lacks flavor. I went first for brunch with friends and got the German buttermilk pancake and it was a little burnt and tasted like cornbread and then second time got eggs Benedict and again flavor was not there and needed salt. I enjoy the environment of the restaurant but since I am really there for food I will probably not go back again.

Food was good. Waiter was incredibly rude. I asked for soup instead of salad and then he brought me salad anyways. I asked politely if he would correct it and he replied very rudely that now i would be getting both. Like i purposely made him make the mistake. I ended paying 45 to two ok sandwiched. Definitely wont be going back.

Overall it was good. The only issue this time is that they have computer problems and "cancelled" my Open Table reservation. At the end of my meal, I talked to the receptionist lady and she said that they have issues but didn't offer a solution, just told me to talk to the manager. While it is true I understood the problem they had that morning, I didn't get my points until I offered a solution: to make a reservation again at the time I was in and they were able to process it.

An unusually broad vegan menu (well worth eating even if not a vegan) and all food options are terrific. Friendly service, alcohol, and the Golden Braid right next door if you have to wait.
