“Noise level”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Food was excellent, but the noise level is what turned me off. I won't go back (unless someone else is footing the bill).

Thank Donna M

“Two Very Different...and Very Pleasant...Experiences”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

This past month I ate twice at Scarlett Oak Tavern - a lunch for two in the tavern and a birthday dinner for 8 in the dining room. There is a lot to like here. The warm rustic atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing. On both occasions the service was truly excellent. One example - our server presented a little dessert with candle to the birthday person.....and upon request, she immediately provided 7 additional spoons so we could share. I really liked the salads (side, caesar), sandwiches and the wine. My main dinner dish, the pork, was good but a little bland and did not quite rise to the level of similar dishes at other places in this price category. I guess I appreciate somewhat bolder flavors, over the comfort food approach, especially for dinner. Nevertheless, the overall ambience, service and food made for a really nice experience both times and I look forward to returning.

“Always a winner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Whether you want a pub experience or fine dining, it is to be had at the Scarlet Oak Tavern in Hingham, MA. Two menus for whatever the occasion, you have choices from comfort food to creative expressions from the Chef. As well as date night, meeting friends, we have also had two large family gatherings there and the service staff was outstanding!!! There is a large bar, private dining rooms and atmosphere everywhere.

“Lack luster service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Had a birthday dinner on a Sunday night. not too busy and there appeared to be plenty of servers. The interactions with the servers was minimal at best. The steaks were very good as were most of the sides. Maybe we should have sat in the lounge for a more casual dining atmosphere. This was always my go to restaurant for a special dinner but for price I think it's time to pick a new favorite.

“Great vibe, excellent food, good service - will repeat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

We had dinner with another couple who live locally and loved this spot. All of our food was excellent. Would go again, just be sure to make reservations on a weekend or you will have a long wait.
