Went for lunch
Food ok. Not well presented. Service slow. Overall, meh. Hostess very nice though. Nice patio area, ruined by stacks of chairs piled up and converted by a blue tarp. Looks like a scrap yard.
Clean fun warm environment loved it here
Every dish was delicious and the service was as impeccable. Can’t wait to go back
Really great food and ambiance. Service was excellent and highly recommend this restaurant
The food was ok. Nothing great.
Great. Consistently good. One of our Go to restaurants
Had a business lunch recently and thought it was very good but dinner did not live up to expectations. The margarita flatbread was too cheese heavy while my wife’s hamburger was very tasty. Service was very good and the atmosphere is great.
I love this place! My chicken was so moist! And everyone else loved their meals. And I highly recommend ordering 2 Brussels Sprouts so you don’t find over them. The service was decent but definitely has room to improve. And I highly recommend teaching the servers how to properly open a wine bottle.
Our server cane over to us 4 times to ask if we were “ready to order”. Within 15 minutes that we got there.
Went there for Valentine’s Day last night was great!
Upon entering the restaurant, I found it a bit odd and frankly unappealing to see 2 rolling racks full of coats in the vestibule, just hanging out, unattended. Seemed a bit flea market-ish for a supposedly nice restaurant. Once seated at our table, we noticed just how dark the restaurant was. So dark, in fact, other diners relied on their phone flashlights to read the menus.
Our server was friendly, but she seemed rushed. There was also a server that was continuously walking past us, that had a strong body odor issue.
The food was good, but nothing outstanding. We had the roasted artichoke appetizer, which was probably the best thing we ordered. Seasoned well & roasted perfectly, it was delicious and the highlight of our meal.
The main courses were the Roasted Duck special, which was not very good, but it’s accompaniment was delicious (truffle risotto), and the Short Rib over polenta. The short rib very good, but the polenta was very grainy and unappealing.
For dessert, my wife had her heart set on a chocolate mousse cake listed on their online menu, but it wasn’t available in restaurant.
Overall, it was good, but I don’t feel I got enough value for my money. I would try them again for lunch service, or maybe brunch, but I will be enjoying my dinners out elsewhere
The male host at the front door was not very welcoming nor personable. The female host on the other hand, was very friendly and welcoming.
We always enjoy the food and experience at Oak and Almond.
Dinner was very good. Fresh food and interesting choices on the menu.
Food was really under seasoned and bland.
Loved the atmosphere and the Short Rib was delish!
There are also nice, healthy selections on the kids menu.👍🏻
Stopped on the road headed north to ski country and were pleasantly surprised. I could see how it could become a local hang out. There was a bar to the side but tables far removed in the dining room with kids. All were well behaved. The food was better than average and well priced. The sweet butter was particularly good and the waitstaff very kind and attentive. We would definitely return.
Very nice relaxing atmosphere. Staff is always friendly & food is excellent.. summer dining is my favorite outdoors on the patio.
Food was delicious! Service top notch! Lovely lunch for two.
Go out of your way to find this place and experience a dinner here! We hit it in the middle of a snowstorm and found it a warm and welcoming oasis next door to the Hilton where we were staying. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, and there is something for everyone--meat and fish and vegan and gluten free options! The service is top notch as well. Loved everything we tried here--the lamb burger was awesome, the organic salmon was the bomb, and the appetizers are out of this world! Homemade bread hit the spot too. We had little room for dessert, but great options there too!
Fabulous food and upbeat vibe. We can always count on a great meal and wonderful service.
So great the little gem ceasar is back!
We have gone to Oak and Almond before and loved it. Unfortunately this time around we were a bit underwhelmed. I ordered the prosciutto wrapped monkfish which is one of the more expensive items on the menu. There really was no taste to it. We asked for a pesto to add to it, which provided a bit more enjoyment. My husband ordered a lamb burger, which he ordered medium rare which came with no pink in it whatsoever and again wasn't very flavorful. We will try Oak and Almond again and chose other menu items.
Beautiful restaurant, great menu, food, ambiance, value. Everyone I take there comes back with their friends. First choice for me!
A little more expensive than I thought it would be, but food and service were decent.
We all opted for a hamburger as we weren't that hungry. All agreed that the hamburgers were mediocre at best. It was overcooked and not juicy. Very disappointing.
Excellent brunch selection with bottomless Mamosa. Food was fresh and flavorful!
Not a cozy or inviting layout. The service was fine but the food was mediocre. We were dissapointed.
My only negative was the wait of nearly half hour from when we had our reservation. I had a party of 6 who had just arrived from Europe and who were tired and wanted to get seated at our reserved time of 7:15. There was no room at the bar area to sit while we waited. They were upset. Once seated everything else was very good (food, service). The management brought us desserts free of charge due to our prolonged wait. Honestly if you have made a reservation, somehow there has to be a reserved sign on a table or tell the guests that the table was promised for another group or politely ask for their understanding in vacating prior to the reserved time as a condition of giving the table to them.
Unorganized and poor customer service. Extremely long wait to be seated.
I didn’t think it was possible, but my experiences at Oak & Almond keep getting better. Bravo to the team for consistently outperforming with quality food execution and interesting flavors! The food is fresh and delicious in a cozy and convivial setting! The wine list and beverage program is on point, too!!
Their signature drink seemed like all syrup and no bourbon. Pasts was too oily and too many green olives. Brussels sprouts excellent. Bread excellent, short ribs excellent. Waiter really really nice
The slowest service I've had in a long time.
Great service as always. Just wanted to point out that I cannot believe the menu changes that are occurring. Many desserts that were fantastic are gone. Most notably the Little Gem Caesar salad was by far the best item on the menu was removed. I am deeply disappointed. They definitely had one of the best Caesar salads out there and no longer does it exist.
Nice ambiance and good service. The food is good but I wished that they had a couple more options on the menu.
It was black Friday and I thought everybody would be shopping, but they weren't as they were all having a good time at Oak and Almond. We had a reservation so we were seated right away. We were in no hurry and enjoyed a bottle of lovely Pinot Noir. Our waiter Ramone was excellent as always and even though they were very busy, the staff was very attentive and the food was excellent!
Love love love this place. Food. Service and ambiance.
With all my allergies I was 100% confident I would be safe eating here.
Our waiter was outstanding Best service!
