OAK Long Bar + Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
This is a breathtaking space with old world ambiance. Friendly no -stuffy service with pricey but well made cocktails. Avocado and crab toast and Brussels weee quite tasty small plates. Scallop entree very solid but I thought the healthy swordfish portion was a bit dry. Lobster roll quite solid and nicely toasted but the fries were fine but nothing special.
I have been coming to Oak Long bar for years and have always enjoyed the service, ambiance, food, and drinks. Recently, my friend and I came to celebrate Lunar New Year. The hostess seated us at the table, but then removed us from to make space for a middle age white couple. We stood around for an additional ten minutes. It was embarrassing.
Firstly, they have a very limited menu selection, it takes forever to get served. Finally, when the food does arrive two of the dishes; the chicken and the lamb meatballs are cold - not warm - cold! Combine this with low-light, very noisy background, cramped tables and high price and you see why we'll never return.
We pick this place base on my co-worker's recommendation and reserved a table for valentine's day. Upon looking up the restaurant information, I found that they had a special menu for valentine's day. I was a bit excited until I arrive at the restaurant.
There were a good choice in the menu. One item in the special valentine menu caught our attention was the 32oz cowboy steak for two. But it's a hefty $120. My wife and I are a fan of all type of steak and we decide to order that. Prior to that I saw something on their regular menu and wanted order it and the waiter said they won't make anything else other than what was on their special menu for the day.
Waiter was kind but has a little attitude(?) when we didn't order any drinks. Is it mandatory to order drink in a restaurant? Appetizer were Ok and very salty.
When the steak came, it was over valued. I could have cooked a cheap choice steak that I bought from Stop and Shop better than the one I had. Did I remind you that was $120?
Overall I don't think I would be coming again.
We went here with a Gilt certificate for brunch and it was very good. Got the mushroom flatbread, vegetable omelette, croque madame and some cocktails. It's a little pricey for standard breakfast food, so probably wouldn't have gone without the Gilt certificate. Loved the ambiance and decor and our waiter was great though!
Food was very good. Expensive. Bar is to packed. People waiting behind seats for to be at the bar. Other bars seat the first group that's been waiting the longest. Hotel should offer reserved bar seating for hotel guests, so they can enjoy a drink prior to going to their dinner reservation.
It's hard to rate because members of my group felt differently about the food. Mine (grilled octopus) was delicious - others said only OK. I think the food my have been waiting a while (as were we) because our waitress (Lydia) was very busy, so it came out rather cool. Lydia was very accommodating and delightful. It was hard to converse because the music was so loud. Overall, the atmosphere is great and it's a convenient place to grab a bite before or after the Lyric Theater but not a place I would go for a quiet meal.
This was my first time in Boston and I was staying in the hotel where this restaurant is located. Although somewhat pricy, the food and wine were very good. The George’s Bay scallops were beautifully prepared-perfectly seared but creamy and sweet. Definitely worth heading here if you are in the neighborhood
This is more like a bar than a restaurant in terms of ambiance and seating. But the food (we ordered 4 small plates) was outstanding, and the wine by the glass selection was very good. I would definitely return if I did not want a "formal" dinner, but rather drinks/app's with friends.
We had an amazing experience at Oak Long Bar and Kitchen! Food was delicious and the service unmatched. My husband and I were celebrating 6 months of marriage (and 8 years of dating) and we couldn't have asked for a better place for a romantic meal with a fun atmosphere. Drinks were also to die for. Highly recommend!
Absolutely delicious! We continued my husband’s birthday weekend celebration with breakfast at Oak Long Bar. The staff was so thoughtful and kind, and it made my husband feel very special! The mimosas and monkey bread were sooo good! We look forward to returning soon!
A friend of mine and I hadn’t seen each other in a few years so we booked a dinner reservation at this restaurant so we could eat and catch up. Unfortunately it wasn’t a great place to do so. The tables were so close together you couldn’t get by without knocking over the drinks on the table next to you (nevermind hear every word the people next to you had to say). The food came out cold. The atmosphere was upbeat but also too loud to hear each other. Lastly- I do not like it when they bring out the entree while I’m still eating the appetizer (which they did). It’s just a small pet peeve. Beautiful building though.
Brunch was great. I opted for one of my personal favorites slightly modified.
The corned beef hash with eggs can’t be beaten. Service was outstanding. The bar was crowded perhaps due to a game.
A longtime favorite Boston option where I still long for the return of their classic Boston Cream Pie.
The dining room is stunning with high ceilings and beautiful architecture, perfect for date night. We had the mussels to start, then the chicken (him) and the swordfish (me) - all was excellent, tasty, cozy. I really want to go back and sample their smaller share plates, everything looks amazing.
Nice enough place. Hostess very helpful with information about the area. Ordered Lobster Roll for me, my wife had Bacon Cheeseburger. While waiting for food, we decided to each take half a meal. Lobster roll was very good, maybe an 8 out of 10. Cheeseburger was way over cooked. Probably rated as a 2 out of 10. Can get a better burger for half the $22 price we paid anywhere. Very disappointing.
Very loud and tables are crowded together. We were staying in hotel and it was easy but we wouldn’t go again. Waitress rolled her eyes at me when I asked for a taste of the wine. She just wanted to turn the table and kept asking us if we were done. Food was just ok.
We went here for Christmas Day dinner. They were offering a Fixed price menu for the holiday. However, no where did it mention that the regular menu would not be available. When we asked our server, Jake, about the availability of the regular menu, he unknowingly or unwillingly informed us that the regular menu was not available and walked away.
This was very disappointing, and we decided to leave after paying for our overpriced, underwhelming cocktails.
Even more disappointing was when we were leaving, we noticed other patrons enjoying their meals at other tables with items off the regular menu.
Not sure why the double standard.
Won’t be back.
On Xmas Day, the staff tried hard to keep the crowds happy. Ditto for the kitchen. I love the look and feel of Oak Bar, but would rate the food average. Market salad was nicely dressed but boring, and marred by two sad slices of pock-marked green apple. The tuna tartare, prime rib, soup and dessert, however, were fine. Our server was never far, so pacing of the meal was good. I'd come back for a quick bite at the gorgeous long bar, but probably not for dinner.
