Food - excellent. Cocktails - well-poured. Service - absolutely, positively sucks. Waiter could not have been more inattentive or uninterested in his customers. Disappeared for 15 minutes after we asked for check. Asked second time, no joy. Had to walk to hostess station to ask another waiter chatting with her to do it. That worked. It shouldn't have to come to that. Definitely not Fairmont standards.Very disappointing.

It's impossible to get a spot at the bar here, and they randomly select tables to be first-come-first-serve. It's very confusing whether it's okay to sit down or if they're already reserved because there's no designated section. When we finally got a spot at the bar we were disappointed they didn't have a very extensive cocktail menu or nuts to snack on. Instead our bartender bought over savory mini biscuits with a spicy mayo type tip. It was all too salty, unfortunately.

The renovations are excellent. This is now a great place for cocktails and app. Watch out for the cougars and euro...

We went for Sunday brunch with 2 friends. The service was incredibly slow and not attentive (ex: our water was filled only twice, despite it being empty 90% of the meal). The food was mediocre. I had an egg frittata that's only flavor was the goat cheese on top (which the waitress confused with parmesan when I asked whether there was cream in the dish). My fiance had the corned beef hash, which wasn't very flavorful either. The servings were small, considering the price...which is okay if the quality isn't that of a well plated Denny's meal. Perhaps lunch is better, as it started to fill up as we were leaving...or maybe people were just coming for drinks and the nice decor.

The "new" Oak room remains to encompass the old Boston appeal with a new modern twist and happens to have the best $18 dirty martini...worth every penny! ;0)

While the food was delicious, the drinks were actually terrible. The chairs looked beat up and compared to the great oak bar rooms in other cities like San Francisco, the venue deserved a lot more love and care for such a special setting. The person at the door did not greet anyone who was not in a business suit; on a Friday afternoon in August 90% of the customers were not in suits. He spent most of the time on the phone or talking to the other bar staff, completely ignoring the people who came through the bar entrance, which made them (and us) feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome. Not even a nod and a smile. We were staying at the hotel and we were so disappointed we vowed not to return to the bar (we love the hotel), which also doubles as the hotel's only restaurant for breakfast and lunch. My husband's margarita came in a scotch glass and tasted terrible. My bloody mary didn't even come with celery just a lemon wedge. Vastly disappointing after all of the rave reviews from many of the travel sources; cost $ 70.00 for 2 mediocre drinks, a steak sandwich (which was delicious), and a cup of soup. Likable waitperson, but overall, just expected a more special experience, especially for the money. Not recommended.
