What a wonderful restaurant!! I selected a place located between family members who live two hours apart. What a perfect selection! The ambiance was lovely and the food delicious! We definitely hope to go there again!!

This is a hidden gem! Absolutely love the way this restaurant supports local farms and distilleries. The added hospitality charge is divided amongst the entire staff which seems to make a much more collaborative waitstaff. Small gluten free menu, but still tasty options. My only slight disappointment was how pink my porkchop was. I didn't want to complain so I just cut around those parts. We will definitely be back!

Innovative, seasonal menu, most items locally sourced, is great! Service was attentive and friendly. Interesting approach to tipping -- flat 20% service charge which is split among all employees, not just serving staff. Went for Sunday brunch. Will definitely go back to try their dinner menu.

Excellent evening! Celebration of a friend’s birthday. Appetizers of shrimp & polenta, sweet potato crostini, and roasted brussel sprouts & cauliflower. We shared family style. Entrees of pork belly & squash, roasted chicken breast w/colcannon potatoes, and roasted squash with kale & quinoa. Complimentary dessert for the birthday so we split the ice cream sundae! All was excellent. Ready friendly waitresses and very quick service. Martinis & wine list were excellent as well.

Food was outstanding and did not disappoint based on reviews. The service was a little slow to start to receive our drinks, but thereafter was very good. Definitely will return on a Friday night to try their fish fry.

Red Oak is always good. They pair ingredients that I would never think to do. They always have an infused water each night. Always made with fresh fruits & veggies. Last night it was cucumber & watermelon. A nice change from plan water. Desserts were great. 5 to choose from. The menu changes weekly so it is always a surprise as to what is on menu. It is a little higher in price but the ingredients are organic, locally farmed & delicious. For the quality of the food I am so willing to pay a higher price.

A hidden local gem in the Bristol area - I can't say enough about the quality of the food, the menu, the service, the ambiance, infused water, the COFFEE! Every bite of my food was a treat. I love the local sourcing, the living wages they pay their staff (but feel free to tip anyway, although not required, the service is THAT good), the local artwork on display. If you try it once, you'll be back.

Everything I tried was uber delicious. We had a mixed table of carnivores, vegetarians and vegans so that's always a challenge. We did some meal sharing/swapping to get around dietary restrictions, but would welcome more plant based options in the future.

It’s so nice to have a farm to table option in this area. The homemade breadsticks are wonderful as was the beef tip sandwich and pork chop dinner. Our waitress was very efficient and friendly. I really appreciate that the tip is included ensuring a living wage for all employees. I’ve never been disappointed!
