The atmosphere and service were excellent. The food took extremely long to come out to the point where the chef sent us a complimentary appetizer as an apology. Out of 5 people only 1 person truly liked their dinner. The rest were ok, average but...More

WE had a lovely lunch at Oak +Rowan. The food was good, the space was interesting and fortunately because we had a booth the noise level was fine and we could really talk. Highly recommend the salads, especially the Brussels sprouts.
