A great location that has had mixed success with owners, hopefully Oak and Almond will be here for the long haul. Featuring farm-to-table cuisine, Oak and Almond has a nice variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts with something to satisfy everyone in your party. This is now one of our family's favorite dining options.
Delicious brunch! So many good options and not to mention bottomless mimosas! My guests were delighted because it was their first visit there. They loved how fresh everything was and how tasty everything was. We had salads: Caesar, farm, and burrata. For entrees: frittata, salmon, and fried chicken sandwich. The best!
Service was great, really good wine and enjoyable cheese platter. Apps and entrees were inconsistent. Burrata app was fair and flatbread was over salted, inedible. The short rib risotto was tasteless. The fettuccine alla norcina was overloaded with sausage in one servicing and sparse in another. Both dishes had too much truffle cream and the mushrooms were undercooked. The burger was fine but too thick and fell apart easily. Lastly, the white and dark chocolate mouse in the cake was awesome but the chocolate cake itself was dry and gritty.
Went with a friend for restaurant week!!! Great menu choices and worth 35.00!!!
Very fresh food. Absolutely delicious.
Food was fantastic. Very fresh and flavorful. The wait staff was a bit uncoordinated. For example, we asked for more bread and the busboy came and took our bread plates away. Otherwise a wonderful, accommodating experience. I was there with my 86 yr old aunt. They kindly seated us in a quiet area.
My new favorite brunch... food was great and our server was awesome! Can't wait to go back for dinner!
This is one of our favorites and every menu item doesn’t disappoint
Our 2nd visit (in 2 days!) was just as impressive as our 1st lunch. Calamari cooked perfectly, great starter. Waiter very patient with us and allowed us to enjoy appetizer before ordering dinner. Clams and linguini prepared just the way the diner requested, without the spiciness as listed on the menu. Fish special of the evening cooked to perfection with the crispiest outer layer...so delicious and nicely presented. Took home a doggie bag to save room for dessert. Wish we lived closer to frequent this restaurant more often, but will definitely be back on our next trip through Norwalk.
Very impressed with our first visit to this restaurant. Wanted to try it before our dinner reservation the following night as we had not been here before and are very glad we tried it for lunch. Very nice lunch menu with lots of variety and all fresh, local ingredients. Beet and carrot salad absolutely delicious as was the bread and butter brought to the table. Portion just the right size to share and were pleased that the salad was split for us and served individually. Also shared the mushroom pizza...one of the best oven fired pizzas we've ever tasted. Loved the fontina cheese used-nice and mild. Portion just the right size for sharing. Left room to try the yummy chocolate chip cookie which was served warm and tasted fresh-baked! Only concession was that we didn't have it topped with gelato! Service was outstanding, not rushed but just the right amount of attentiveness, and we thoroughly enjoyed over an hour and a half lunch. Very excited to be returning for dinner the next night.
Love their food! Everything is always delicious! And I love how they can easily accommodate for food sensitivities. Would love to see gluten-free bread added to the menu, and a gluten-free and dairy-free dessert as well (other than sorbet), but other than that, this is my favorite local, farm-to-table (and all around!) restaurant.
Always a great meal coupled with wonderful employees. 👍🏻👍🏻
Oak and Almond never disappoints. Food, beverage and service is consistently great.
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!
Excellent cuisine at very reasonable prices. Beautiful interior. Patio seating when warm. Awesome
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.
Had brunch here with my family.
Phenomenal service and food!
Good for kids and family.
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.
My new favorite place !
Food was good. Atmosphere was fun but the service was bad. Super slow waitress seemed too busy talking to other waiters so drinks etc took forever.
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
Excellent experience at Oak & Almond. Took a large group of business colleagues and everyone enjoyed their selections.. fresh, delicious, inventive.
SURPRISINGLY GOOD FOOD lARGE SPACE, BARE BONES DECOR NOTHING NOTEWORTHY ABOUT APPEARNACE BUT SERVICE WAS GOOD, FOOD MUCH BETTER THAN EXPECTED
iF THEY SPIFFED IT UP, IT COULD BE EVEN MORE MEMORABLE WILL GO BACK
Top to bottom fantastic experience. Delicious food. Can’t wait to go back.
Great food, cozy at the bar, loved the Argula Salad and the Ceaser! We shared the swordfish. Delightful. Went to look at the facility for event, after our meal we decided, Yes
Food was excellent as was the service. Only disappointment was that they ran out of bread and chocolate chip cookies. Would definitely recommend this spot.
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.
nothing to write home about, service was not that great and the food was mediocre at best
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
Great atmosphere and menu. Brunch has 10$ bottomless mimosas and 5$ bloody Mary’s. Great selection, yummy food. Can’t wait to go back!
Our special occasion was New Years Eve. Food was great and service was as well even though they were very busy. We really enjoyed ourselves. A definite recommend!
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!
This is my second time coming to Oak and Almond for brunch and I was Happy to have the same waiter Rakesh, who is amazing and very knowledgable about the items on the menu.
