Food and drink superb. Sat at the bar. Bartender very accommodating in getting us an appetizer that was not on the lunch menu. Only issue was that the bar seats and the table seats are the same - on the large size - and we could not exit without having the customer sitting in back of us get up and move to make room.

Made reservations for dinner; waiter was disengaged. Took our drink order but never came back to ask about dinner. We had to call him over 45 minutes later. Food is just okay. For price it should be better. Lobster roll was a 4 out of 10. Atmosphere is nice. Very lively. We went on a Thursday night. A quieter weeknight might be better for service.

The service from the host through the wait staff was fantastic. The location is great, and the ambiance is good. The cobb salad reminded us that there may be rationing going on in the salad components world and that use of things like egg, bacon, and dressing should be kept to an absolute minimum. The chicken that accompanied the salad had likely competed in the Boston marathon, as it was incredibly muscular and resilient. Presentation was nice.

My friend is Muslim. She asked for a burger without beacon and the server didn't listen to her! She had beacon on her burger.
We were obliged to wait for the server a lot!

Great atmosphere, perfect place for an Aussie & a Brit to catch up over drinks & good food. Would be nice to see some high-end Australian whiskeys/gins there - Sutherland Cove & Starwood (whiskeys), Four Pillars & Archie Rose (gins)

Small but diverse menu. Great apps, small plates, a few entrees. Our table gave scallops, burger, beet salad very high marks. The Old-Fashioned cocktail was excellent. Very good wines by the glass. High end and hip atmosphere.

OAK Long Bar did not honor reservation made for outside seating, food was overpriced for what we had and staff (other than served) was generally not friendly. Crowded seating near bar. Only reason I see going is for drinks. Will not do dinner there again.

Wonderful dinner for our family celebrating a college graduation. It was a very busy weekend of celebrations in Boston so the restaurant was completely full and very busy yet our waitress and all the the staff were attentive and calm (and so knowledgeable!). We all got filets and salmon and all were delicious and cooked perfectly. Grill 23 is the perfect place to celebrate and splurge!

We had an outstanding time at dinner on Saturday night. The food was outstanding, and we were a tad hesitant about eating a meal there. However...everything from the warm pretzels to the beet salad to the delicious salmon was prepared perfectly. The four of us had a spectacular time. Thank you...thank you.

I think the Long Bar needs to clean their wing back chair covers. As we sat at our table, I noticed many had food stains on them. That is a big turn off. Otherwise the place is great

I met a friend for breakfast and we were given a great table. The service and food were fantastic. I recommend the "Red Quinoa" which is eggs with healthy grains and kale. The beef hash was declared to be excellent by my guest. We love this place.

Very spicy chicken and vegetables, drowning in brown sauce not described in the menu
Wonderful vinegar fries!
Requested mustard with them, which never arrived. Server seemed attentive in other areas: we requested a 2014 Pinot noir, and a 2013 arrived. When we commented it was different from that listed, he produced a 2014 bottle of same vineyard.
Dark woods and high ceilings make the place Loud

The restaurant itself is beautiful. We had breakfast and the menu was very limited. My daughter had chicken and waffles which she said was very good. My waffles were cold and the sausage I ordered came 10 minutes later. They were not hot either. When we received the bill, I was stunned to see that a cup of plain coffee was 7 dollars! And we had to grab creamer from another table. So all together close to $65.00 for cold breakfast waffles and coffee.

Oak Long Bar is a reliable "go-to" place for a business lunch for 2 - 4 people. The menu is small but interesting, the food is served quickly without fuss. Always delicious and satisfying. The waitstaff is professional but not fussy, and you can linger without getting rushed along. Very relaxed.

We waited 30+ min for a waiter to acknowledge us with having a reservation for 8 people. Then waited 45 minutes for drinks. We had empty drinks and I had to get up and find someone to get a second round. Our waiter never checked on us. When they brought everyone’s food but left out two people for 10-15 minutes I finally complained to a manager. This was the worst service I’ve ever had at any restaurant. With $400 bill you’d think they would have taken care of us but they didn’t. I have never complained before and I can honestly tell you even with great food/atmosphere I will NEVER go back nor will I recommend it.
