Really thoughtful covid accommodations. Felt very safe- paid and ordered via QR code. Heat lamps kept us warm and the makeshift roof kept us comfortable from the drizzle.
Food was delicious and well-priced and the service was also very accommodating!

Brunch was good. Price was good. Seats are limited. There are some COVID 19 safety measures, but there is room for more safety measurements. Wish the utensil/napkin was plastic wrap air sealed because there is possible cross contamination if the server touched other items. Also, it would be nice if they had hand sanitizers at the front entrance for the patrons. Overall, good first time experience. Will probably order to go here and try out their other items.

Thank you very much for your review. We wish Plastic sealed silverware was an option, but unfortunately is not an option at this time. However, we diligently change our gloves EVERY time we touch something new — including the silverware. In terms of your concern about hand sanitizer, Oak has 4 hand sanitizer stations, including right at the inside of front door (which has a special foot handle to open the door.) Thank you again for visiting Oak. We really hope to serve you again soon!

The Oak is always amazing with their food, attitude, service and drinks. Best chill spot on Beacon Hill that never disappoints! Also they have a rad vegan menu for those that need to know.

Tried Oak for the first time while they’re offering outdoor seating only, and I was very impressed with the level of care and attention that went into creating a safe dining experience as we re-open.

Covid aside, the food is great! Oak’s diverse menu easily accommodates meaty and plant-based diets alike. Flavors are savory and portions are filling — I’m so happy to have found a bar that offers more than fries and Brussels sprouts as vegan options :) We’re looking forward to coming back for dinners at the bar when we can linger and explore the craft beer selection.

10/10 recommend the mushroom gravy + biscuits (brunch)

the Oak is such a great choice. We were a party of two and went for sunday brunch, easily made a reservation the night before just incase but there were parties that came and went without one throughout the time we were there. Our server, Jeff, was so polite and conscious about contact/keeping distanced and wearing masks. The food was awesome, we were both pleased with our vegan french toast and chick'n and waffles. The best thing by far, however, was the Cloud 9 coffee cocktail. By far one of the best drinks I have had ever!! will absolutely be going back again.

A rare gem in Seattle, highest quality ingredients and menu items that hit the spot, whether you're a vegan or a meat eater. Amazing cocktail and draft selection, including the best hard kombucha beer on tap. Friendly and attentive service. A neighborhood joint at its finest. Covid safety is top notch as well. Fries to die for. YUM

Oak's menu and service was phenomenal. They are also very very adherent to COVID cleanliness standards. Unfortunately, the food itself was kind of bland. I don't know if it's the type of salt they use or if their definition of "spicy" is still super bland but the food itself didn't pop.

Still awesome place though!

A great experience! Sidewalk tables are in the shade during the dinner hour so we were cool, noise level outside is low-moderate but not enough to interfere with normal conversation, food was delicious (recommend the vegan burger), friendly staff and easy street parking! All around great, will dine there again.

Oak has AMAZING vegan options, great staff, and large portions. We went for my birthday brunch and were so pleased! The tables are all outdoor, you have to make reservations, and the staff is very conscious and courteous of keeping distant -- the menus are on barcodes and you scan another barcode to pay! It's basically no contact dining. We got the brussels sprouts (AMAZING maple balsamic sauce), vegan breakfast sandwich (Just Egg is amazing, and they make their own delicious smoky tofu bacon in house), and the vegan chicken and waffles (again, chicken made in house -- surprisingly chewy and crunchy! perfect for the waffle combo). Oak has quickly soared into my favorite Seattle restaurants, and I've only been there twice!

You guys, Oak is the best. Great staff, great food (with thoughtful and tasty vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options), great drinks. They are extremely diligent about ensuring diner and staff safety - outdoor seating with appropriate distance, masks required, no shared condiment bottles, no-touch payment. Oak is a small biz, please support them! You'll be glad you did!

Oak is the most conscientious restaurant in town during this time. They go over and above to provide a safe dining experience. The food is delicious as always. They are the only restaurant that equally pleases vegans and meat eaters! The brunch was outstanding. They have an egg substitute that tastes like real eggs. Amazing. Best fries in Seattle.

Oak is exactly what you want it to be, cool socially conscious comfort foot with tons of vegan option and a truly wonderful staff. Our visit was right at the start of re-opening for table service and they went above and beyond to accommodate a safe restaurant space. How can they possibly stay in business with so few tables? It's sad to think that this place someday might not exist because that would be a loss.
