This was our first visit. I had the branzino. It was amazing. The service was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was very comfortable and enjoyable. They even knew it was special night for us and brought us a complementary desert. We will definitely make this a regular after things open back up.

Delicious and fantastic service. Plenty of social distance on the patio. They’ve got the heaters going which worked great. All of the staff was great. Super friendly and helpful. I noticed they wear latex gloves when bringing things to the table which is a first for me - shows their attention to safety and detail.

Now for the yums: drinks wonderful, persimmon salad abs gnocchi delish (and beautifully plated with color pops - sadly did not get a pic). We also had dessert and coffee.

Patio is pet friendly. They brought my baby a bowl and a big treat which he enjoyed in addition to the little bites of squash he lucked in on. Doggie approved!

Will definitely be back.

Very professional and respectful staff. We loved the heaters out on the patio -- so comfortable, it was easy to forget we were sitting outside. The food and drinks were fantastic.

Overall this was a nice experience. It began with disappointment as I made a reservation and requested outdoor seating. When we arrived on time, there was only 1 table outside left and it was not acceptable. To me, this means the hostess did not prioritize reservation guests and instead gave away the best table. We adapted and took a secluded indoor option but then it meant we weren’t paid much attention to when we did want service. I gave 5 stars bc the waiter did an excellent job despite the deficit he had to overcome from my initial disappointment. The food was good but did not wow me the way I thought it might. The highlight was the overpriced Failla Pinot which I knew would make me feel better. Sadly, don’t think I will be back but was worth experiencing. The outdoor dining and ambience is the draw so consider that in making your decision

Brunch on the patio with Dave Miller on the keys and Rebecca DuMaine superb vocals is attractive on its own, but the food and ambience was excellent at well. The Oak & Violet was a first time treat but it will not be the last.

The venue is exceptionally well done and we went for both dinner and the live music show. The show was fabulous, but as with visits the food was mediocre (we had the gnocchi, chicken and affogato) and while the staff is professional and pleasant, the service is very poor (slow, no checkins for add’l water, wine, had to go find someone to add to our order).

The brunch is different and tasty - I enjoy trying them and was very pleased.

The musicians were talented, nice tune selections but too loud. I want to talk a little with my guests - but it was tough.

In these covid times, Oak+Violet provided a delicious, welcome respite. The pizza appetizer was terrific, and my fish dish was very tasty. The service was a perfect combination of attentive but not pushy. Appreciated the open air patio seating. Can't wait to return.

Good food and waiter was very nice, however there was an extremely loud, obnoxious group of people behind us. They broke glasses, kept telling things out, and quite frankly should have been kicked out. This ruined our experience.
