Great drinks and food! With few people in the restaurant, took a while for food to come to table. I thought value for food and drinks was great though. Definitely found my new favorite drink there!

The food was wonderful- we had a great variety of foods and my vegan and vegetarian friends were thrilled by the options. Towards the end of the evening the music was raised where it was harder than optimal to hear each other but I am absolutely going to return again and again.

Nice low-key place. Sliders were overdone hockey pucks. The chicken pot pie was dry as a bone. No gravy sauce whatsoever.

Such fun thanks to our server. A little in Siberia on the side but they did honor the outdoor request so that’s what counts. Food was great if not as earth shatteringly original (though kumbucha cocktails were new to us). Mostly we loved our server who somehow made it memorable. Recommend!

Food was good, though the burger patty was too thin compared to the thickness of the bun.

Also an easy -2 ⭐ for charging for soda refills.

So unfortunate.. went for brunch and arrived shortly before our 10:45 reservation. After waiting for over an hour for our very straightforward order we still did not have any food and with no real sense of when it would arrive. After waiting 45 minutes for our order we told the waitress we had to leave for a baseball game. 20 minutes later still nothing. We paid for our coffee and had to leave . We never tasted food and there was no explanation for the lengthy wait nor was there communication that the kitchen backed up. Very disappointed..we were really hungry and looking forward to a nice brunch.

I love that Oak has great outdoor seating and requires proof of vaccination! Unfortunately the food overall wasn’t that great. Highly recommend the Brussel sprout appetizer. The vegan ceaser salad was meh - not super fresh greens, soggy croutons and cold vegan chicken strips weren’t that enjoyable. Fries were cold - but vegan burger and tofu bacon was pretty good. Good service, but one final quality push with the food would make this place easily 5 stars and worth the cost.

I’ve been going to oak for almost 7 years now and I have never once ever had food this bad from them. the fries were hard and dry and had no salt or anything. the burger was alright tho over cooked and the bacon on my burger was so undercooked it was chewy which i’ve never experienced before. the only thing to redeem the burger itself was the CBGB sauce which thankfully hasn’t changed along with everything else at oak.

Made a reservation for an outside table for 1130 brunch. Had to wait about ten minutes for our table. Outside tables are along the street which is sometimes quite noisy with traffic. No shade at our table and it was hot. Server was friendly but obviously not experienced and a bit clunky in her communication. Menu was limited, but there were lots of vegan options. Confusion on what was available. It took at least ten minutes for her to take our order and then at least 30 minutes before our food was out. Once we got the food I was pleased. I had the Beacon breakfast which was very tasty. We shared the waffle dippers which were standard, but good. Everyone seemed to enjoy there food. I’d give it another try, hoping for a smoother service experience.

The three of us found the quality of the food to be excellent. We had their fried chicken, oak salad, broccoli, and their burgers and fries. One of us ordered a burger and fries sans gluten and dairy (but had their special vegan goat cheese) and it was yummy!

We enjoyed a leisurely weekend brunch at Oak. The food was great. Service was friendly but a little slow - which seems to be the norm for post pandemic dining.

I loved the ambience of Oak and the music they were playing and our server was super sweet. The food however was not that great. I ordered the chicken sandwich and it was very bland. I did however love the homemade tartar, just beware they charge you for it!

Service was GREAT. Super attentive and nice staff. Food came out quickly and was delicious. I love their vegan options and I was so pleased that Oak has been able to retain (or hire) such a wonderful staff in the wake of the pandemic.
