    The food is excellent and usually service and ambiance are as well but service was pretty slow - took almost 45 minutes to get juice I ordered 3x and cocktails took 20 minutes and it was not busy at all. Food was really good but slow service took a toll on the experience as we had to ask for everything twice and food came out not at the same time.

    The food was good, but it's overpriced. The service didn't help - was extremely slow (must've taken 15-20 minutes to get our drinks) and it didn't seem too busy.

    Food was good, but unfortunately one of the breakfasts had several shells in the eggs (and not small pieces). The space did seem short staffed which is unfortunately is a problem everywhere these days.

    My favorite hotel bar/restaurant. The location is historic, and gives you a warm, comfortable yet elevated dining experience. Staff is always great and attentive. Food is phenomenal, the vegan eggplant piccata with a meyer lemon and caper dressing, vegan cheese, cashew cream is one of my favorites. The New York Strip is always made to perfection Something for everyone which is refreshing.

    Slow service without many tables booked. So much for the Plaza decor. Terrible food. $32 for a canned-quality clam chowder and two chewy tasteless prawns. That x2 Plus 4 mediocre cocktails. $170. Plus tip. $200 down the drain. What a disgrace Boston is.

    We were a group of six people and only two meals were served on time. Three more meals were served at staggered intervals. The sixth meal, which was the simplest, took an extremely long time to arrive. This disappointed us greatly as we have been loyal customers for a long time and this experience did not meet our expectations.

    My entree was very small, not enough for a meal. 50$ worth of food and drink that we did not order was added to our bill. We waited quite awhile for our server to return, and finally informed another staff member when they checked on our table. Our waiter corrected the check, and barely apologized for the error. Not a great ending to our dinner.

    We came to celebrate a friend visiting from out of town, and Oak Long Bar did not disappoint! The cocktails were so good we had to have seconds, and the food was equally amazing! We shared the duck, beef rib and shrimp&grits, and they were all outstanding! The only thing that wasn’t heavenly was the dessert, so consider having another appetizer and skipping the sweets!

    I ordered a business lunch of salad and grilled shrimp. There were only 2 small shrimp in the “main dish.” The food was tasty, but I was starved and the food was not worth the $32 for 2 small shrimp.

    We decided to have breakfast at OAK Long Bar + Kitchen in Fairmont Hotel. The first thing that caught our attention was the beautiful space with its high ceilings, creating a nice ambiance. However, our excitement quickly turned into disappointment. When we started ordering, we were taken aback to find out that they were running out of most things on the menu. It was quite frustrating, to be honest. They didn't have spinach, which was a bummer because we were really looking forward to having it with our egg. The espresso machine had been broken for the entire week! We couldn't even enjoy a cup of coffee with our breakfast. So, we ended up having to venture out to a nearby Starbucks just to get our caffeine fix. We decided to order a side of toast, thinking it would be a safe bet. Little did we know that they were also running out of whole wheat and white toast. The only options available were sourdough or rye bread. We opted for the sourdough, but when our food arrived, Instead of a proper slice of sourdough, they brought us the 3 tiny pieces of sourdough crust and rye bread. Talk about a mix-up! And to make matters even more frustrating, the server dropped a piece of sourdough on the floor while serving our breakfast. They didn't even apologize or offer a replacement! Honestly, we wish they had been more upfront about the limited options from the start. It would have saved us the disappointment and allowed us to make a different choice (as we are paying for that bread). This kind of experience is definitely not what we expected from a restaurant located in Fairmont Hotel. We were hoping for a memorable and enjoyable breakfast, but unfortunately, it turned out to be the worst experience we've had in a while.

    I have eaten here many times and the service is usually outstanding but this time was particularly disappointing. We were not given any silverware when we sat down and had to ask almost 20 minutes afterwards. Food was exceptionally slow coming out—nearly 45 minutes after ordering. Hopefully this won’t be repeated but I am a little wary.
