Oak + Rowan
Food was perfectly portioned. Presentation looks great.
Finally, O+R is back to the level I was introduced to it at. Outstanding food and fantastic service. Considering that it was Restaurant week menu for me, I had an outstanding value too. My colleagues paid about the same for their main course alone (one was vegetarian). Salmon was great for both preset and reg menus. Gazpacho with shrimp was not only inventive (that’s their trademark) but one of the best tasting. Desert, which I normally don’t get, this time I ordered and it was amazing! Seriously, just some ice cream !!!
Small portions size
The service was so great at the bar. We often sit at the bar so it’s nice to have a great bartender! Great wine recommendations and we ordered multiple courses. New dishes from their chef are impeccable. Tomatoes are flavorful, pastas and the bread! Yum. Keep it coming. Your the best!
This has already been one of my favorite places to eat, but they went above and beyond for this meal. One of my family members has a ton of allergies and the chef specifically took the time to review the extensive list and adapt all of the dishes she ordered so that she could eat it without fear of a reaction. Wonderful service and delicious food! You can't go wrong coming here!
We tried several appetizers that were all excellent. Entrees were delicious and the service was attentive but not intrusive. Will definitely be back.
Arrogant service ruined fantastic food and a cool interior architectural design.
$14 for a coffee French press was outrageous and we could see the bottom of the cup it was so thin. We asked for the coffee to be remade and it was no better after leaving for longer to brew. A service-minded business would have comped the coffee and apologized. No apology from this arrogant server! Shame
The bread! The rye bread was the best part of the meal, followed by the bartender's whim cocktails.
Energetic ambiance with a good menu, execution was close to 4 star, but lack of attention to details severely hindered the overall experience. for example, partially cold meats on the main course, stale and soggy bread sticks with the cheese. Slow initial service, offset by an amazing hostess / sommelier. Overall it felt as if the chef was on point, but no staff to support the talent... which takes away a lot of value from Oak + Rowan, which is too bad, because the wine pairings, cocktails and deserts were on par.
$15 - for 1/8Lb of french cheese with stale bread stick - not worth it
$38 for cold halibut - no worth it
$6 for bread - not worth it, I have my words for the manager who decides to charge for bread...
c'est la vie.
May try again a 2nd time to validate or prove my experience wrong.
Best of luck.
Beautiful space, lovely service and thoughtfully prepared dishes.
Probably one of the best dinners we have had in years!! Excellent all around. Flavors and portions - amazing. What a delight. Got duck and lobster spaghetti. I dislike rye bread but theirs was fabulous- can't say enough about this experience. I also rarely write reviews but was compelled by the quality of our meal.
Very creative menu, excellent presentation
Excellent! Lovely evening, great table. Very good waiter. I'll be back!
Enjoyable meal, service and atmosphere were great.
We were seated right away but didn’t have anyone take our drink order for at least 15 minutes - far too long. The server we had was very good when she arrived, but things got confusing when another gentleman came over to take our orders too. When asked if there were any specials he said he didn’t know and left. Then after our first server had taken our orders he came back to tell us what the specials were. It was kind of ridiculous and disorganized. However, the food was very good and we didn’t let it spoil our great time together.
My colleague and I had lunch here for the first time. The food was exceptional and the service was impeccable. I would highly recommend this place.
It’s next day and we are still talking about the tuna tartare, ribeye and that duck. By far this was best experience at the restaurant since it’s opening. Great new cocktail list too. Run, don’t walk!
We had the four course chefs choice. Amazingly good.
I enjoyed this dining experience beginning to end. Worth every bite (or sip)!
We really loved the food and the service. We were in a private area that unfortunately, was too warm and a bit uncomfortable because we were a bit cramped as a larger group. We just needed the room to be cooler. Otherwise, everything was great.
Food and service were terrific and my guests thoroughly enjoyed.
The food, service and ambiance was perfect for our business meeting/dinner for 10. The convenience to our office on Summer Street was outstanding.
Great work on Anniversary treats.
Superb, creative food and professional waiter who knew the menu well and delivered. Very nice space in historic property in Fort Point. GO
We were in Boston for vacation, and this restaurant is great! The food was amazing, and the service was great. I wish I lived here because this would be a regular for me.
Food creativity, flavor, and presentation is outstanding. Along with likely the best dessert/pastry chef in the whole city.
Outstanding food, great service!
Excellent service, food and atmosphere. I would highly recommend Oak & Rowan.
High quality food - amazing blends of flavors, superb presentation.
Met with my girlfriends and thoroughly enjoyed the overall experience.
Best food we had in 5 days in Boston. Each dish presented layered flavors. We especially loved the duck, cod, and the smoked ricotta with rye sourdough.
Only food miss - the olive oil in the dishes of superb ice cream left an odd, and in the case of the cookies and cream, an offputting flavor. Left alone - the three we tasted (peanut butter and jelly, orange sherbet, and above mentioned) were excellent.
Only reason we didn’t give a 5 out of 5 was service. We felt rushed to order drinks and wine, and felt that our questions were met with some condescension. Our waiter warmed up throughout the night, but every person in our party noted the brusqueness.
Wow! Had several local beers, clam chowder, steak and dessert. Service was amazing as was the food menu and all drink choices! Highly recommend!!
Always reliably delicious and interesting. Took a job candidate for dinner. Quiet enough to hear each other talk, but still lively and fun. Servers are memorable for the right reasons.
Food is delicious. Full bar, many options.
This restaurant offers 3 choices of seating: high tops, booths, & bar! The food is amazing! I ordered the red snapper ceviche & the Maine halibut with white asparagus! So mouth-watering!
I booked this for a quiet business lunch and was impressed with the food and drinks available. Staff were very helpful and polite. A nice atmosphere and I received positive feedback from my international business associates.
We had the rudest and angriest waiter ever. We were together with Japanese guests and our waiter got angry that their English was not good enough and did not pay attention to our orders and did not bring half of the orders (we were 4 people) and reacted aggressively when we told him that we ordered more.
We arrived early for our reservation, we weren't seated for almost an hour. Once at our table, our server was very good and apologetic, but the kitchen took nearly two hours to deliver our entrees. First they delivered two plates to our party of 9, and about an hour later they delivered the rest. The food was flavorful, but cold. Huge disappointment, I'm embarrassed that I brought my friends and family who were visiting out of town here. Will never go back.
