Visiting the Oak Room is always an experience so it was rather disappointing when 2 nights in a row the service was slow and we had to go to the bar ourselves to get drinks.

My wife and I stayed in the Fairmont Copley Plaza for a week in April 2017 and used the Oak Long Bar and Kitchen regularly throughout our stay. We visited the bar for breakfast, lunch and evening drinks several times whilst at the hotel and each time we did we experienced excellent food and drinks with a real friendly and... More

Our party of four opted to be seated in the wine parlor so we could hear one another. Our drinks and food were excellent, and the server went beyond my expectations to make recommendations. We shared appetizers and entrees ... then a party of a dozen or so settled into the wine parlor. Conversation ended for our party, as we... More

I had lunch here when I was staying at Fairmont Plaza hotel. The food was average, the venue looked very nice though. The service was very average, the bartenders/waiters were a bit unprofessional.

I was here for a work dinner and found the interior of the restaurant absolutely beautiful, intricate with fine attention to detail. I don't know if they offer it, but I would have been interested in a tour. It is beautifully renovated. We had a set meal with a wide variety of menu items. The food was very good and... More

I recall this place years back - when it was the Oak Room - heavy oak walls and an old school Boston look made it a place you'd expect to see James Bond ordering a martini. Dated as it may have been, I liked it and was not certain I'd like this trendy version of the same space. I was... More

We stayed at the Fairmont Copley Plaza where the OAK Long is located so eating here was, at first, a matter of convenience. However, I would recommend the restaurant even if you are not a guest. The staff was very accommodating and friendly and the breakfast was very good.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
