Brunch at the Oak Long Bar is always a favorite for our family. The Bloody Mary’s are fabulous! The hash and eggs and eggs Benedict are scrumptious and filling.

My feedback from my first experience of the OAK Long Bar is that the ambiance instead of being one of vim and vigor was more frenetic bordering on chaotic.

In all fairness, this was my first time there so I didn't know what to expect. The Food was good and our server was fantastic! I would recommend OAK Long Bar as a good establishment to pick for some drinks and maybe some apps. For a dining experience, I would recommend somewhere else.

This style of eatery is not unique, however the lack of any type of separation between the bar and dining section is. Walk-ins are welcome, probably the majority, but there is no waiting area so they naturally head to the bar. because there is literally no separation between the bar and the dining section, the bar patrons spill into the dining area closest to the bar en masse. This makes for a lot of noise, chair hip checks, yelling over tables, etc.. For a period of time one bar patron was so comfortable in his surroundings, he decided to utilize my fiancees chair as a leaning post while he shouted back and forth with other patrons...

Beautiful experience

Pros:
1. Table was ready for us.
2. Server was always present and willing to explain dishes
3. Hostess- phenomenal. Asked how we were and genuinely cared.
4. Ample parking on street or at multiple lots.
5. Beautiful area near everything including T Station.

Cons:
1. A little loud and pending what day you go you run into corporate drunks. (Our server was nice enough to move them away from our table).



Will definitely be returning!

First, the service was outstanding. Junior was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was excellent as well. I just wish there were a few more entree choices, as there were no specials on the night we were there. It was also much noisier than I remember, and at times it was hard to hold a conversation.

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.

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!

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.
