Service and ambiance was great....the food was nothing special. We had the Scallops and Cracked Pepper Pasta for our entrees and both were just ok. We also got the tuna tartar and octopus as our starters. The octopus was great but the tartar again was just ok.

Great cocktails though, good spot for a drink! And again, great service

Perfect for a Sunday mid winter light dinner. Getting a table near the warming fireplace is extra special. The clam chowder was nearly perfect and the avocado and crab toast delicious. Servers were attentive and very helpful selecting wines. Can wait to visit again.

Late lunch meant a shift change otherwise it would have been 5 star. Great table and fantastic host staff. Waiter was not as attentive. Food was great. The brunch menu is limited but has breadth from eggs to salads seafood & burgers.
Love this place & will return!

I wrote the manager about the terrible service we had and have yet to hear from him. Waiter apologized at least ten times for all that went awry, but apologies became very old when we were presented with the wrong check, served coffee instead of tea, had to wait inordinate amount of time to get servers attention, and finally, the valet couldn’t get our car key which had been locked in a box and the key holder to that box was attending a meeting!

The dishes are quite expensive. Even the smaller dishes are around $15. The price is definitely not worth the quality. The food is not bad, but you’re better off throwing away your money elsewhere.

Nice ambiance, bizarrely slow and inattentive service for the price point. Most of the food was good, with the exception of the croque madame, which was dry.

We do have to give a shout out to manager Chris who helped us with our issues. Our party must have been caught between changing shifts as our original waiter never came back to take our order. When a server finally approach us, she was incredibly rude. We were told we could no longer order from the brunch menus we were given because it was 3:09 and brunch stopped at 3. When we explained we would have ordered if someone had come back to out table; she rudely told us to pick from the other menu because there was lots of good thing on it! And she added you people were eating food so what is the problem; it was a fruit try we ordered earlier. The bar tenders & atmosphere is amazing but Oak Room could use some work on their servers.

First time going to the Oak Long Bar. The breakfast food was very underwhelming. It is expensive, but you are basically paying for the ambiance.

We went for brunch on New Year's Day and it was FANTASTIC! Everything we ordered from the cinnamon roll to the pancakes to the eggs benedict were top notch. This was easily one of the best brunch/breakfast meals I've ever had and I look forward to going back. I will say service was slow and we did have to remind our server to bring us a few things, but he was pleasant and the food out weighs any service issue.

Was disappointed, as last year we went had such a great experience at this restaurant. Last year the oak-bar staff gave out hats and horns and complementary sparkling wine , this year nothing. Also food came out cold and sides did not match the menu online . It appeared that some items ran out , but nothing was said.

Great food and wonderful service. Was wedged in between two tight tables however, even though there was plenty of room in the restaurant. That was dissatisfying for the price you pay to eat there.

Hostess was awesome! I really appreciate her manners and she was really welcoming, friendly, and helpful. We were dining with a couple of teenagers and that’s what I would like for the teenagers to learn from, to treat others well and to be respectful. Our waitress however was a shame. She was rude from the beginning to end, came to take our orders in a haste, didn’t even bother to allow me to order a drink, didn’t even bother checking on us in between. When she came to give us our check, didn’t even bother asking if everything was alright and if we needed to box anything. I had to literally hastily asked her to box my half leftover pizza, which was quite good, as she was hastily turning away. Such a shame for such a nice establishment.

Your hostess was really amazing. I wish the tips would go to her.

I love the atmosphere and the food was terrific. We were there for breakfast/brunch and the coffee was lukewarm but tasty. Cocktails were excellent. Our server was good but a bit disinterested. I love the experience overall and would go back again as I've had several other wonderful experiences with excellent service.

The Oak Long Bar never disappoints. We shared a number of small plates and the food was delicious and the service superb. My only very small complaint was that it was a bit noisy, but it was busy and I think that is to be expected.

The monkey bread is AMAZING the staff is very accommodating and nice. The Fairmont Copley is a nice hotel, so naturally the food and drinks are pricey, but on an occasion this place is worth the try. Try it once and you will go back. It’s a very popular place for drinks and dinner.

My fiancée and I like to go for brunch (monkey bread ;)) we’ve been 2 times and it’s been great each time. We will be back!

It was terrible. Waited almost 45 minutes for our appetizers (bread took longer) and then they brought the wrong app. Waiter came over and was indignant that we sent the app back. Had to let him know it was not what we ordered. Service was so bad we skipped dinner and went somewhere else. Never going back for dinner. Really disappointing.

The food and service here are always excellent! This time, we loved being seated in the little area off to the side as it was a bit quieter than the main seating area. It was very relaxing both to be over there and to have well-timed service from our server who was attentive but did not rush us. I will request this seating area in the future. (I also love the cozy little tables by the fireplace, but when I am with my mom it is better for her to have a regular height table.) Anyway thank you for making this a great experience again!
