Oak and almond wood fuels our wood burning oven and stove. Imparting an earthy quality to many of our menu items, these hardwoods are at the heart of our restaurant's philosophy.

With cuisine inspired by the traditions & techniques of yesteryear, our philosophy is simple: provide delicious handcrafted food, created with well sourced seasonal ingredients with a focus on hearth & flame, Organic Farm to Table. We source the best artesian ingredients and prepare them simply with respect. The wine program highlights biodynamic and organic selections, which compliment the simple integrity of our menu.

An 18 foot communal table, crafted from local 100 year old oak floorboards anchors the dining room. Hand-rubbed walnut tables, industrial fixtures, and an open kitchen featuring a wood burning oven and stove provide a modern yet warm dining experience.

Oak and Almond is always good. I can't believe this gem is hidden next to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles! I always enjoy going there. Last night (Valentine's Day Celebration), we enjoyed the salmon tartar, the flatbreads and good pours of wine that are incredibly reasonably priced!

The food was delicious with interesting combination of farm fresh ingredients. There were also a good selection of vegetarian options. It was surprisingly crowded on a Monday night so it was a bit noisy. Would go back.

My husband and I went here because we got a gift certificate for Christmas and we were pleasantly surprised how great this restaurant is! The farm to table food was delicious and many great options to choose from. I had the crispy chicken with vegetables and my husband had the grass fed hamburger and we shared the mac and cheese. All were super tasty! Then we had dessert which was amazing as well! Plus they have their own home made bread that you get when you sit down and it was one of the best breads Ive had, plus they sell a whole loaf for only $6!!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will for sure be going back again real soon!

Pasta came out under cooked. They decide to clean the cappuccino machine at 9:00 on a Saturday night so I wasn’t able to have it with my dessert as ordered. Service was not very attentive.

What a great experience for our party of 8 get-together. The menu has a great selection and almost everything is handmade (such as my awesome pasta) or locally sourced. The interior is nicely appointed, the noise level average, and the wait staff attentive. The kitchen is in plain sight and to see the incredibly delicious looking cuts of meat being freshly seasoned and placed on the grill and in the oven just lends its credibility to a first class establishment.

I will definitely be going back!

Sat down at the table and was welcomed with water from their pitchers. Seems as if they do not wash their pitchers often as there was mold all over the lid. Asked for another, the new one had the same issue. It was gross and was honestly not willing to stay, however because my friends had travelled from far I was forced to stay. The waiter was polite and the food was okay- nothing out of the ordinary, although I did order a simple salad because of the mold.

Had a great meal here with family. The food was prepared well and tasted delicious! We had pork and ricotta meatballs and crispy fried calamari to start. For the entrees, we had the steak, a seafood pasta special, bucatini alla amatriciana, and for dessert, tiramisu. We were wowed! Service was also very good. We will definitely be back!

Slow service at an empty venue. Food was okay not sure how full value of the dining is correlated to price and overall service experience. Not bad, but just not great.

The food was delicious and service was great. Everything on the menu was from farm to table and fresh. They make their own bread, desserts, and pasta. The flavor of the ingredients was wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

It was my birthday. They were told during the reservation it was a special occasion, but no cake :/. Our server was good in the beginning, but his attention to us faded as the night went on. By the time we needed our check, he was no where to be found. I was really disappointed in his service to us, especially when we had great service a few weeks earlier there. The food was great! We really enjoyed ourselves otherwise.

the food was outstanding. the service not so much. after being brought our original bottle of water we were never offered another drunk or more water. left with empty glasses. we had to ask other waitstaff to find our waitress for us when we were done eating. lots and lots of waiting such that i was getting a bit irritable. if the food had not been so strikingly good i would not have recommended. Physical atmosphere was pleasant

Went here for Saturday brunch with a few friends and we had a great experience. The eggs Benedict are seriously the best ones I've ever had and their homemade bread that they bring to your table at the start had everyone raving. I've also been here for dinner before and it was great as well.

I love this place as the food is always great.
I’ve been here 1-2 times a week for various meetings.
It’s one of my favorite places actually. I was a bit disappointed that the octopus was a little on the not enough for the price side. Maybe they were low. But is a great place for pastas and flat breads

In my humble opinion, Oak & Almond is a high end neighborhood restaurant. I'm glad it's there where my wife and I can dine when the normal run of the mill will not cut it!

We dined there for an early New Year's Eve dinner. Very enjoyable setting, dinner. Would recommend it!
