Oak and almond wood fuels our wood burning oven and stove. Imparting an earthy quality to many of our menu items, these hardwoods are at the heart of our restaurant's philosophy.

With cuisine inspired by the traditions & techniques of yesteryear, our philosophy is simple: provide delicious handcrafted food, created with well sourced seasonal ingredients with a focus on hearth & flame, Organic Farm to Table. We source the best artesian ingredients and prepare them simply with respect. The wine program highlights biodynamic and organic selections, which compliment the simple integrity of our menu.

An 18 foot communal table, crafted from local 100 year old oak floorboards anchors the dining room. Hand-rubbed walnut tables, industrial fixtures, and an open kitchen featuring a wood burning oven and stove provide a modern yet warm dining experience.

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!

Food is always delicious. After waiting a long while, we asked the hostess to find us a server. Evidently the server was not told she had our table.
Once we connected, all was good.

We have been many times here and love it, normally 5 star. They changed the menu and it was not as nice. Brussel sprouts appetizer not as good, squash soup was heavy on leeks and celery. Also, they removed the mac and cheese - how can they do that it was superb for kids and adults! We gave feedback to the chef so hopefully they will make some adjustments.

Atmosphere was very nice, but service was not. Pasta was cold and too al dente. Will give it one more try!

Really disappointed in our dinner — they changed the menu
Took off favorite pasta dish - limited in sides - also took off one of my favorites veggies
being a vegetarian- with all the reductions of the menu - it was hard making choices.

This place is outstanding in every way. The servers, managers, food and ambiance.
We had the arugula and prosciutto pizza, meatballs and rib eye. They were all fantastic.
Jason the manager was the best.
We can’t wait to return!!

My family and I had brunch at Oak and Almond. It was a very varied menu, which is unusual for a brunch. Usually, just breakfast items are offered. We had a great variety of choices. We all enjoyed our meals and the bottomless mimosas. The service was excellent. Our waiter, Ramon, couldn't have been more attentive. He was always there for whatever we needed. Love this restaurant...the décor is so inviting and the food always good.

It’s a calm ambience, with candlelight, and cloth napkins. Every dish we sampled was delicious. Parking could be improved.

Great evening with family for a birthday dinner...staff was excellent, didn't move us along but knew when we were ready! Food was terrific and enjoyed by all...nice ambiance with tables spaced out, a lot of natural light from outside and lights on trees as dusk came over us...Enjoy..

This has become our go to place since we first went there in the spring based on a few recommendations. The food is consistently good and we like the atmosphere. I've recommended it to others and they have been pleased as well. I'm glad we discovered this restaurant and plan to continue coming here.

This might have been one of the best dinners I’ve ever had. P.E.I. Mussels were so good. Pasta was so fresh, short rib required no knife whatsoever. And the bread with sweet butter was amazing. Just a great place with a menu were you couldn’t go wrong.

Everyone in my family enjoyed their dinner from Oak and Almond! There were several specials to choose from in addition to the main menu and the server was very knowledgeable. My only complaint is the flies that seemed to be hanging out in the corner we were sitting in.

I made a 5:30 reservation for a Saturday night , we got there at the perfect time not too busy at all. Our waiter was Ramon, he recited a list of about 6 different specials for the day and checked on us frequently throughout the night. The food was well worth the price and the service was excellent , would def recommend!
