    Beautiful room but very very loud. Food is good but too expensive for they type of dining and they sat us in a very loud section of the restaurant which made the experience not so enjoyable. The staff is very nice and welcoming.

    Essentially bar food, but good quality and nice size portions. Service is a little spotty and chaotic, and tables are way too close together for a private conversation. Overall, a good place for breakfast, and a mediocre experience for dinner.

    Hadn't been to this room for a number of years. Remember it as an elegant space. Reviews seemed to indicate this was still the case. However, we were quite disappointed at how down-at-the-heels it is now. We arrived shortly after noon and were seated immediately, which was nice. We weren't sure who the host was until she has leading us to our table. She didn't speak to us; she kind of grunted from behind her mask. (I know this sounds snarky, but it was the case.) Our waiter was fine. Not friendly...seemed a bit "over it" for the day, but otherwise acceptable. The food was okay, but was not impressive. I ordered the "petit dejeuner", which had a yogurt/muesli parfait that tasted like it had been sitting around, some fresh fruit and a croissant which were fine, and a lackluster blueberry muffin. Never was given the coffee or juice that were supposed to accompany it. My guest had a salmon pizza which she liked. My second guest had a cup of chowder, which was extremely small for the $9 price tag. We anticipated that a restaurant in the Copley Plaza would provide a higher-end experience. All of us were disappointed that this is no longer the case.

    Food was good. Our server was nice, but slow. I actually had to go to the hostess station to ask for service, because we were sitting there for over five minutes without being approached. Then, the bar made my martini with tons of vermouth and olive juice; never asked for it "dirty" and had to send it back. Great atmosphere and people watching.

    Worst service ever, got drinks then all downhill. took one hour 20 min to get lunch and then they argued with us saying it did not take that long. Manager said she “had to trust her staff” meaning we were lying about the timing. Other diners sat, ordered, ate, left and we hadn’t gotten served. The table next to us even joked we could have their leftovers! Staff never checked on the 4 of us, never brought us water refills, brought wrong order. Copley Hotel charges exorbitant prices because they pride themselves on their customer service. I will pay for a good meal and good service and good experience, but to wait that long with that bad service and then to be essentially told we were lying was horrendous. Save your money. Food was nothing special.

    Food was very good, experience and wait staff was excellent up until the very end- when the Maitre’D named Cory approached our table to tell us that they “had a table of 6 coming in and they wanted us to wrap up our meal or move to another table.” For a premium property like the Fairmont I found this to be incredibly rude- obviously in a situation like this what was I going to do? Tell him no and embarrass myself in front of my date? I wasn’t going to move to another table so we left but I have to be honest- I kind of felt like I was leaving with my tail between my legs. Not the kind of feeling I want to have when I go to a supposedly premium dining experience. Get your act together Oak Room, you can do better than this. I won’t be back.

    Food was outstanding. Our waiter, Raul, was fantastic. Drinks were great. $16 for a bottle of Bud light is why they got 3/5 stars on value. I would go back. We ordered the tomahawk ribeye, and it was everything a steak like that should be!

    Seated outside beautiful view of Boston public library. Great food - fries were unique with a little bit of vinegar and salt - reminded my husband of Ireland. There was a nice little kick to the chowder - some type of oil and when added to eggs Benedict - it also made a nice kick. Great sangria and great service
