My wife and I have eaten lunch here twice. We do prefer the dining room where the bar is located. Staff is gracious, and will accommodate any requests. Prices are good.

Atmosphere was good and feeling was jovial. Food tasted very good. I was a bit sad that it took so long for the host to recognize we were there waiting to be seated, when there was only one other couple in front of us to be seated. We finally walked in and asked if we could sit at the bar.... More

This is an average place for dinner some meals are pretty good and most are average. They make very good drinks and have dinner specials that seem better than average.

Our family weekend was begging for a dinner out but we were leery of a Portland (ME) restaurant on a holiday Friday night. A quick search turned up Oak Street Bistro just a short ride away. What a gem! Serene, friendly, calm atmosphere with the piano in the background. Attentive waitress made our visit great! Too many favorites on the... More

My family and I were going to go to our normal Sunday spot, but they happened to be closed.. We ended up here on a whim, but we were glad we did. The food was good, they made a meal for my daughter that was reasonably priced, and they gave us some complimentary pastries that were absolutely amazing. The staff... More
