The Scarlet Oak was chosen by friends hosting me for a few days, our meal to be my thank you. Oh, yes, indeed. I felt good about saying "thank you" here! Although fairly rambling, the restaurant is divvied into smaller spaces and feels very festive, upscale and inviting. I had local oysters and the lobster risotto and was in heaven.... More

We had a very special 30th anniversary dinner there recently. Our son and his fiancé joined us and the service and food was impeccable. When the chef learned of our anniversary he/she sent a special pre-dinner treat. Because of their schedule, we had to order and eat fairly quickly. The server was wonderful.

We recently celebrated my Mother's birthday at Scarlet Oak (her choice). There were 12 of us, so a reservation was necessary and easily obtained. We were happy to be seated in the "wine room." The prices are a little "pricey" (in the $35-$55) range), but the food was out of this world, as was the atmosphere and service. Well worth... More

I would typically rate SOT as Very good to excellent. I have been a somewhat regular there for years and have had several functions there and have typically been very pleased. However, two recent trips have been disappointing. On the first trip we ate in the front bar area and our male server was excellent. However, I was very disapointed... More

Here for birthday dinner and then a business lunch. Both great but a bit far for me to go often. Food is well presented but often off in temperature. Dinner - sides were not included as at many steak houses but the 2 I chose were fairly burnt and overdone. Lunch - interesting fish over a bacon corn chowder -... More

Went here with a party of 8 ranging in age from 8 to 72 and everyone walked away happy. The fish dishes were wonderful and the youngest enjoyed Nutella french toast. The restaurant is located in a classic New England colonial with fire places and two bars upstairs and down. The decor is very relaxing and homey in a modern... More

very comfortable no matter where you sit, food is great no matter what you choose. Jane & I like to sit at the bar, have a martini ( excellent) and some oysters. We're older so then home and bed. However, we hear that after the sun has past the yardarm, the Oak becomes a great place to meet new people... More

My friends and I have had lunch and dinner here dozens of times. We have never been disappointed and in fact this is often the "go to " choice. The alternatives of pub seating , a bar stool or dining room allows for flexibility. The pub menu is great for later night or lighter fare and the daily chef specials... More

Always drove by this place, tonight we decided to stop in...and boy are we glad we did! Everything was tasty, fresh, reasonable and delicious. We went with a lite app (crab and cheddar dip with crackers)...it was incredible! The bread was sourdough with some pieces of corn bread...again, delicious...I had the lobster and scallop risotto (strong mushroom taste) and I... More

We went for lunch on a girls shopping day. It was a cold day in February, so it was a nice surprise to walk in and they have a beautiful double sided fireplace and we were lucky enough to get seated right in front of the fireplace at a table that had a couch on one side and two comfy... More
