We had an amazing time at this restaurant! It's small, but has a great atmosphere and excellent service. We sat at the chef's table by the kitchen, and were able to ask about ingredients, and just generally converse with chef/owner Eli while eating. Portions are small compared to other restaurants (which they tell you upon seating), but they offer a reasonably priced tasting menu, with an option to share, that allows you to sample from a variety of courses. My husband and I shared said tasting menu, and were perfectly full after all the courses (plus dessert, of course). The menu changes daily, which may be inconvenient for some, but we found it a nice change of pace. Lacey also had great recommendations for drinks when I couldn't decide between cocktails. The honey rose margarita was what I started with, and oh my goodness it was delicious. I always find it a good sign when a restaurant has regulars to the point that the chef/owner knows their names, which we found to be the case here. We will definitely be going back!

What a wonderful experience we had! Can’t rave enough about the talent in the kitchen and the service we received. We sat at the chefs table and had the tasting menu with the wine pairings. Very knowledgeable staff could describe the wine pairing flavor notes and how it went with each dish. The food was well conceived, creative and thoughtful. Plenty of options for the carnivore or the vegetarian. All farm to table and prepared by chef Eli, who has the skills you expect to see at this level. The cocktails were next level, both embracing the flavors of summer but literally a work of art as well. I wish we took photos to show how impressive they were. We have been looking for a fine dining experience that brings a tasting menu together with a relaxed but fancy-ish atmosphere. This is our new spot anytime we want to go all out!

A hidden gem!!! All of the food was phenomenal and the drinks are homemade to order. The bartender makes her own infused liquors(we tried the pine gin and it was great). Pictured is the Bees Knees. I also had a delicious matcha drink. For dinner I chose the four course tasting option. Every dish was delicious. Such unique flavors and items( Like the boar stir fry). Overall a great experience! The service was great too. I last minute requested a reservation and they were able to seat us at the bar. Love the atmosphere here, very casual place, yet spectacular food. You can taste the hard work from both the bartender and the chef in the food& drinks. Definitely will be back if I find myself in the area again.

We made reservations at ottos but they canceled without letting us know so we walked into this wonderful place! The owner fit us right in and I tell you one thing, the food was great! Great service great food! I had the braised boar my wife got the Smoky spaghetti and it was superb thank you for fitting Us in and accommodating Us in such a wonderful day on our one year anniversary! We look forward to going back

Went there last night with 7 family members who hadn't gotten together for awhile. The concept is to choose 4 dishes from different food categories which gives you an opportunity to try things without committing yourself to one large entrée The food was all very good and interesting. The staff was pleasant and efficient. Eli was charming I recommend the Oak Table and Bar
