OAK Long Bar + Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
We live in the neighborhood and have been longtime supporters of the Oak Bar. We were really disappointed in our meal. Has something changed? The pizza recipe has changed and the salad that was served to use looked and tasted like it had been sitting for days.
Great place of a drink, but we will not be dining there again any time soon :-(
Beautiful interior, great waiter (Shaq!), delicious bread, interesting people watching at the bar (that night), loud but fun, food delicious. Brought our daughter and her boyfriend, they really enjoyed it. If I were single, that might be the place I’d go! 😊
Really, really good food in a beautiful room with attentive service. Pricey, but we didn’t feel overly so for a special dinner. We shared starters instead of getting a main. Had mushroom toast (good crusty bread, wild mushrooms and ricotta?), lobster, steak tartare (nicely chopped, not ground) and roasted cauliflower. Drinks were excellent and custom designed for us based on our vague descriptions of taste preferences.
My only gripe concerns the televisions over the bar. The sound is off, but the bright flashing light was distracting and entirely out of keeping with the elegance of the room. I know hotel bars especially like to keep their bar patrons happy, but this is not a separate room and there wasn’t any way to avoid seeing it (plus, there didn’t seem to be a vast audience for it at the bar). This is becoming a bad American trend and I usually avoid restaurants that have fallen prey. We really loved the dinner but this is one reason I might hesitate to return. If you must have a tv, turn it off at the dinner hour.
The restaurant was nice but does not compete with so many others in Boston today. The location at the Copley is its best quality. The drinks were good and priced as one would expect. The menu lacked in my opinion. Staff was gracious. In fact, when the restaurant advertises casual, the staff are in jeans. I was hoping for the price that the dress would be a little higher end casual.
We sat at the bar and near the hearth , where yummy food is cooked .It was so much fun watching the cooking being done and the skilled and very friendly bar tenders making cocktails. The small plates were so tasty. Highly recommend the octopus, wild mushrooms tartine, avocado and crab tartine, the lamb meatballs and the pork belly!
Fantastic atmosphere. You enter a special “old elegance meets contemporary” space. Sophisticated, energetic scene all evening.
Only disappointment was the very limited entree selection and lack of thoughtful vegan or vegetarian dishes.
Great apps and outstanding desserts.
I love the ambience of the restaurant and dine there often. The service was good but not great this time around. I ordered the ham and cheese sandwich which had too much bread and was lacking in taste. This particular lunch was a bit disappointing. Next time, I'll order the cobb or I'll try the turkey sandwich.
We stopped in for something to eat after the theater. Earlier I had to change the reservations to a later time and the hostess was just great. Very accomodating and friendly. It is an 83 seat bar and it was just packed. The noise level is off the charts. We had a flat bread pizza which was very good and a few cocktails. I was given the wrong check charging me for 3 Titos in addition to the Stoly I had. She told me it was the right check they didn't have a Stoly button so it got charged under Titos. Right on the check was the charge for the Stoly. She made the correction with no apologies. I would have drinks there again but it is way to loud for dinner. More of a younger crowd.
Oak bar is a great bar and a good restaurant. Service was slow at first but picked up - and we had a big group so not the easiest to serve. Food was very tasty. Halibut special was a hit. One miss was a steak asked for medium well but served medium rare. Drinks are terrific. Great for small groups but not the best for big ones.
We took our out of town guests fro dinner. Had asked for as quiet a table as possible so we could catch up. The obliged and the meal was prepared and presentation were terrific. Our waiter had brought over an antipasto plank and said it was from the manager. He came by the table and we thanked him. He told us he knew it was our first time at the restaurant and wanted to make sure we came back. When the bill came the antipasto plank WAS ON THE BILL! We tried to find the manager to ? the charge, as waiter not aware of the gift. He was no where to be found and we were tired and just paid the bill as is.. A bit bizarre for sure.
We were here for a late lunch and shared a number of small plates which were quite nice, service was rather good until our waiter produced the cheque for us while we were half way through our food because his shift was finished. Appalling service and not what you would expect from such an establishment. We realise he wanted his tip but surely there should be procedures in place that he would still get it regardless of shift change. He was quite pushy about it too and made us feel rather uncomfortable. Afterwards we raised this to management who apologised, however we will not be back.
We went for brunch. Be aware that the Oak Burger is not really a burger - it's dense as a steak, not a nice juicy burger as I was expecting it to be. My fault for not realizing what "dry aged rib eye" meant. I couldn't eat it. My companion had the Croque Madame, which was delicious but enormous and very rich - took half of it home. The French fries are very good. Our cocktails were excellent. Splendid atmosphere. We'll go back and try different food options.
Seated on time . Then had to wait 15 minutes . Even though this is a Fairmont restaurant they seem to take pride saying they are not . Which may be the reason the service was not Fairmont quality . Neither was the food . Will not be dining in this place again . Still has hotel prices . Not good .
Waiter forgot to put in our bread order, brought appetizers out with meal, and didn't check on table- had to flag him down for a drink and the check. Didn't remove anything from the bill as a courtesy for forgetting to put the bread order in. For a restaurant of this caliber, you would expect better service. Food was good but service was not on par.
