My boyfriend and I went to Oak Long Bar for our anniversary recently and absolutely loved our experience! The drinks were delicious, the food was excellent and priced what we felt was very appropriate, and the ambiance was lovely! My only note is that the music was a bit too loud but not enough to distract from the experience. My boyfriend and I agreed it was definitely a place we’d go back to! Definitely recommended!

The restaurant was very loud. Service was slow — after 30 min we still had not gotten our drinks or placed an order for food. Meanwhile, our waiter had visited the bachelorette table next to use with 3 rounds of drinks.

The ambience was cool and the drinks were delicious, but the food was really lacking in quality and creativity. The service was also pretty poor. I'd go back if their items were a good $2-5 less, but at the current price point it's not worth what you get.

Excellent location - we loved getting to visit this beautiful restaurant for a tasty meal and a great bottle of wine. Love that there is a mixed crowd - some casual travelers, some dressed for an occasion. Casual but elegant!

A limited pandemic menu, same for lunch and for dinner. Good quality but limited choice. Sort of noisy indoors. I was also put off to have my martini served in a coupe rather than a martini glass. Picky, I know, but it isn't the same.

The drinks were great. The waitress was flight and inept. The lobster roll was inedible, unfortunately. Bad fishy smell. Won't be back. Was so looking forward to it..too.

We were so disappointed with the service, food and super loud noise. Our server was disengaged and slow. He left our SALAD under a warmer (it had grilled chicken) for 20-30 min. We watched it sit there. The burger was over cooked and the peach and burratta salad was mainly tomatoes. The manager took care of things but I don’t think I will go back.

Met some friends here for drinks and light dinner. We had hoped to eat outside but it had rained in the morning and the patio area was not set up. No problem because it was late afternoon and the bar was not crowded. Ordered a lovely bottle of sauvignon blanc, two salads (both delicious and enough to serve the three of us) and the lobster pizza which was fabulous. We sat for over two hours and the wait staff were appropriately attentive but not overbearing. It was wonderful.

Terrible service! I don’t care about service in the pandemic but I had to flag them down at 8pm to take our food order for a 7pm reservation. We asked for another minute to decide at like 7:02 when she first tried to take our order but then she never came back. I could overlook this if the food was good but it really wasn’t flavorful, just fancy and expensive. The steak and halibut were cooked well but didn’t taste great. The clam chowder was tasty but too thick and like a three ounce portion. It’s my fault for going somewhere that had a same day reservation available!

Might be that the restaurant is understaffed but I was seated at my table for lunch and was surrounded by tables containing breakfast leftovers for a long time before things were cleaned up. I didn’t feel that the level of service was what I have come to expect from Oak Long Bar and I’m a regular.

Great place to eat. Beautiful hotel. best in Boston. Your dining experience depends on what table you get. Some tables have much better ambiance than others. We had reservations and got a bad table. We asked to change and they gave us a different table with a time limit. That was annoying, but we had a very nice meal.

Stayed at hotel, thought it would be easy to have a quick dinner, especially after seeing the glorious pics of the OAK Long Bar. Did not meet my expectations, its a glorified bar, with just that.... bar food. Waiter was nice but forgot our appetizers. No mention of the the untouched food on my plate. Drinks only kind of place, have the burger if hungry.

Wonderful service and delicious food. The best part was the warm, gracious and thoughtful welcome we received when checking in with the hostess/mgr at the front desk. I believe her name is Cheryl? She is exceptionally gracious and made the dining experience very enjoyable.

The food was quite good. Service was on the lower end of what I'd expect, pretty much just asked what we want and brought what we ordered--no welcome, no reference to the menu, etc. The server did check on us once between dropping off the food and the check, but empty drink glasses were ignored. Very cool space, but it was frigidly cold--bring a sweater if it's warm outside.

The room is beautiful and the energy is great. We loved it! I had the rib eye and my husband had the halibut. My rib eye was delicious but I admit that I’ve had better at other steakhouses. Needed a little more salt and pepper to really bring out the flavor. My husband loved his halibut. But I’m being a bit picky about the food. If you love a beautiful bar/room, a lively atmosphere, and good food….this is one place that is a “must”on your visit.

My first time visiting- The Prosciutto & Mission Fig Pizza was very well done. Perfect combination and they give you a nice portion of toppings. It’s personal size, approximately 10 inches but I never felt like I needed more food. Their cocktails are superb! Ordering a Mint Julep and Irish Coffee. Expect what you pay for, however overall I was very impressed. My server even brought out an extra pot of coffee with an additional cup. The atmosphere and quality fit perfectly together. A classic vintage feel. Oversized leather furniture. My server Lydia was probably one of the best servers I’ve ever had. Attentive, extremely cordial, not pushy or up-selling at all, very informative of menu items and the area. The gentleman manager I came in contact with was very courteous as well. Asked me if I had a preference on dining area instead of “assigning” me a table, which came off as very hospitable. I’ve been in food and beverage with Hilton for four years and I hope we can learn from Fairmont! The only downside may have been the music- they played today’s popular hits that didn’t seem to fit, but it may have just been me. Overall, they do everything extremely well at this restaurant!

Burger bun was completely soaked in grease, lobster roll was fishy and not high-quality. Wine pour was embarrassingly small and a quarter of my martini ended up on the waiter's tray. Poor experience for $120

Food was ok. Service wasn’t great. Server took our order and never came back. Someone else delivered the food. My burger was ordered medium and definitely came back rare. Then spent 45 minutes trying to get our check. Building was very cool…go for a drink at the bar.
