Oak Bar Review

Oak Bar @ Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel
My Opinions:  It was really busy in the bar tonight with a nice variety of people from ages 35 and up.

The service is formal, but slow unless you manage to finagle a seat at the tiny bar. There are plenty of table throughout the lounge - I like to sit by the windows. They sometimes have live music, but call to find out the schedule because there wasn't any this evening.

The food is good at both the bar and in the restaurant but lately the restaurant hasn't been up to snuff, so I choose to dine elsewhere, but this is a great pre or post dinner spot. I do like the dining room layout and formal decor, so I hope the kitchen will pull it together in 2011.

     Try:  Chateaubriand - Artichoke Dip
     Skip: Lamb Lollipops

Some Food/Drink Tasted:  Crab Cakes - Calamari - Beet Salad – Shrimp Cocktail – Baby Iceberg Wedges – Tableside Oak Room Chateaubriand – Club Cut New York Steak – Artichoke Dip – Panini – Center Cut Filet
