    Beautiful spot in a world class hotel … attentive staff and sweet, bubbly hostess Cheryl… great whiskey “winter” sour … delicious and airy crust North End pizza … tasty burgers that way out-size their bun (a great thing!). What’s not to love? It is a loud restaurant - get ready for it. But we were prepared for it and liked the positive vibe. We will be back!!

    The ambiance, atmosphere, decor and overall vibe are spectacular. We were sat in front of the fireplace, which made the experience even more memorable. It truly is a remarkable venue, rich in style and with a Boston character throughout. Service was friendly but a little unprofessional. Didn’t ask what bourbon to use in the Manhattan. Came back a few times for the check. Wasn’t very informative of the menu. Food was good, but options are few and some of them are too simple. If we decide to not go back it will be because of the limited manu options. If we do go back it will be because of the ambiance and the vibe. I think we’ll visit again.

    I love everything about the Oak Long Bar. The food is delicious , the service impeccable and it’s such a special room. We’ve been several times and each time surprises us with new menu offerings and even fun cocktails. Whether for breakfast, lunch, drinks or dinner this is one of my go to reservations.

    Nice setting, not great service despite being a quiet night. No one tending the Maitre D stand to get to our reserved table for 3-5 minutes, until I venture deep into the restaurant to try to engage some help. Had the Shrimp & Grits, which was OK, grits were barely warm. The menu wasn't inventive or outstanding. The setting is grand, the huge windows impressive and the ceilings beautiful, Perhaps it's better for drinks than for dinner, or to enjoy some old world ambiance?

    We chose the OAK Long Bar + Kitchen for our final night's dinner while we were in Boston for New Year's weekend and it was everything we hoped for. I had the Cajun Shrimp and Grits and my husband had the burger. My meal was perfectly seasoned, the grits were the perfect consistency and it was overall a scrumptious meal. My husband's burger was the best he has ever had, the pattie was flavorful and perfectly cooked, the bun was soft and the aioli was the perfect finish. We split a Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert and it was absolutely delicious! We will be returning to the Fairmont Copley (where this restaurant is located) next New Year's weekend and will definitely have dinner here again.

    A beautiful and classic restaurant which has been tastefully modernized and offers a great setting right in Copley Square. Food was excellent and service was prompt and attentive. It does get busy though, so be aware that noise levels will be high during peak times.

    We dined here for a holiday lunch. The room is beautiful and that is what we came for so that aspect of our experience did not disappoint. The service was good. The food was fair. The shrimp on my salad were very overcooked and tough. The prices were elevated but that is to be expected in a tourist destination such as this. This place is best for a drink at the bar.

    Christmas dinner, it was fantastic. I brought the eight-year-old and a 12 year old a long and their kids menu was fantastic as well. My 12-year-old left a yelp review on my account. They said it was the best chicken strips he and his sister had ever had, and they were damn good - handmade, along with hand cut french fries. They didn’t know chicken strips could be that good. My steak was fantastic and my wife loved her salad and pizza.

    The staff need to be more aware of their costumers, our server took his time to approach us, didn’t let us know about the last call for the food at all, and was more focus on talking with his co coworkers. The restaurant is beautiful.

    We love the long bar! We stay at the hotel when visiting and always pop in for a drink and to people watch. We had a burger before a show last night and it was great! Noise level was high but it’s the holidays and it was packed. Everyone is very attentive and friendly. We highly recommend the Oak Bar!

    Given their instagram posts we were expecting a great experience. The room is very nice and we were seated at a great fireplace table. The food and cocktails were not so great. We both had to send the clam chowder back because we literally could not find any clams in it. The eggs Benedict with lobster and a hamburger took almost 30 minutes to be served. The lobster was plentiful but super chewy so we couldn’t finish it. The Peach Bellini was simply peach flavored Prosecco and the expresso martini was Baileys with vodka. Would not recommend.

    We went as a special holiday date night. Unfortunately there were two weddings as well and each guest group killed time before/after the ceremony in the bar which made it very loud. The service was great and the food, very tasty! We had the caviar and crème fraiche to start and split a margarita pizza. Also, the cocktail “ginger spice” tasted like Xmas in a glass 🎄

    An historic spot that’s lost its original charm. Service at the table was fine but circling back was rare. Waiter hard to summons. Food was fine: tasty and well prepared pizza. Drinks were $20 Price point is high but location is great, in the heart of copley square .
