The Fairmont gets 5 stars for its OAK Long Bar and Kitchen. We had the best cup of New England Clam Chowder we had during our two week New England trip with many cups tried in multiple states. They also served the largest and most...delicious steamed Chatham Mussels. I like them even more than PEI (Prince Edward Island) Mussels, which I considered the standard for mussels. The ambience, service and food is top notch. I am not usually a fan of Hotel restaurants, but the Fairmont is a special exception. Highly recommend it.More

We were fortunate to spend 5 nights at the historic Fairmont Copley Plaza hotel, but we didn't anticipate how good the Oak Long Bar and Kitchen would be. This is not the typical boring bar and mediocre restaurant that you will find at so many...hotels. The Oak Long Bar is a stand-alone quality operation that is a mecca for locals and visitors alike. The spacious area beneath the tall coffered ceiling was packed every night during our stay. Drinks are strong, and the food is good. The 1/2 pound burger cooked medium and fries was a popular choice in the evening. The the pizza cooked in the 700F oven was appropriated charred on the crust and satisfying. Breakfast was excellent with a savory corned beef hash and an extravagant lobster eggs Benedict.More

My wife and I had brunch here over Labor Day weekend. We both had eggs Benedict, hers with ham, mine with lobster. Both were as good as it gets. Service and ambiance tip top.

You HAVE TO go here! First, ensure you make reservations. The atmosphere was intriguing to me: Old world charm (European feel) yet also a young hipster vibe at the same time. Intriguing, right? Serve was EXCEPTIONAL - Very professional yet friendly, timed just right from...greeting to drinks to dinner to checking on me. Food was PHENOMENAL - Selection, taste, timing of when things were brought out, and an interesting wine list. Just go!!!More

I have been to the Oak Long Bar on several occasions but mostly for business dinners or an evening drink . The atmosphere and drinks are always relaxing and enjoyable. Great spot to hang out in Boston! Extremely elegant and stylish! Their Lobster chowder is...THE BEST IN BOSTON! I wish I could get their secret recipe! The service is super friendly! One of the server If I remember right her name is Lydia goes above and beyond in her service every time she serves our diner.
