The "go to" place for inovative dining in Boulder. Both the food and service were excellent. The short ribs, shrimp and grits and fruit crumble were perfect.

The food at Oak is wonderful, but most of our party of four left feeling that it was very overpriced, especially for the portion sizes in some cases. The striped bass entree for $28 is literally 3 bites. I took one look at it and just knew that my husband was going to be hungry leaving the restaurant. He termed... More

My wife and I like to try all the 5280 Top Restaurants. So we were excited to get to Boulder and try out Oak at 14th. First off, the service was ok but not great. Our server was not get with recommendations, basically just listing down the menu. Thanks, we can read. We were asking for a little bit more... More

This is by far the best service we have ever had in Boulder and we have experienced most of the upscale restaurants in town. Excellent service, great food, urban style atmosphere. We really enjoyed it!

I am a New Yorker and have gone to some really great restaurants but I would say that OAK at Fourteenth was a good as the best here. The menu is very creative with the freshest food. They have a fantastic variety of small plates that were all very creative and reflect a newer way of dining - ordering lots... More

TA has great reviews on this place and Acorn in Denver was okay so I thought I'd check it out while driving through. There is paid parking all along the street and I walked in without reservations on a Monday night and was able to sit at the bar and watch the action in the kitchen. The deep fried pickles... More

We had a large group and everyone raved about all courses. I had the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin and it was perfect. Make sure you get the fried pickles-best I've ever had. I can see this being a nice spot for a special occasion meal.

Great food, immaculate and speedy, yet unintrusive, service. I had the shrimp/pasta dish, my kids had a burger and the scallops. All were first rate and well-prepared, served hot, and the usual ambient restaurant noise wasn't overwhelming. This restaurant replaced the 14th Street Grill, is on the Boulder Mall, and I would heartily recommend. My daughter DEMANDS to eat here... More

My daughter and her husband took us here yesterday evening for a birthday celebration. It's their favorite restaurant in Boulder, and they live here, so we had high hopes coupled with the assumption that they were treating. Our hopes were realized on both accounts. The space itself is open and uncluttered, with tall windows and a good view looking up... More

They say good things come in small packages. Well, Oak has some of the best food and equally refined service all served in a relatively small (intimate) layout in Boulder. However, the Prime Rib is cooked to perfection and certainly not for the faint of heart as the large 16oz comes served on a wooden platter -more than enough for... More
