nice place, good food. Liek the location because its close enough to walk to downtown after dinner and take a stroll. The staff was pleasant. Will definitely go back.

Oak City is a great neighborhood restaurant. We have been going for years, and are regulars. We like to sit at the bar and eat as do many other people. Most of the people who sit at the bar, eat at the bar. Some won't eat there if they cannot sit at the bar. It is great fun and you get to know a lot of people. One of the reasons we keep going back is the food. It is always delicious and the chef's specials are wonderful. Try it, and sit at the bar!

Oak City caters to the somewhat prosperous business comunity, and does a good job. Wood fired pizza, duck, pasta, all well done in a reasonable atmosphere. If you never leave the house in jeans, drive a boxter, get your hair cut every 3 weeks, and like decent taste, this might just be your place.

Pros: Consistancy

This is a nice place to go for "date night". We like to sit up at the bar and enjoy listening to the banter of the bartenders. Everyone is friendly and the food is good.

The service and ambience at Oak City is wonderful. The staff is attentive but not overbearing. The room is elegant and quiet enough for conversation.

But the food is just average, at least for lunch. It's not bad, just nothing special. I had cornmeal crusted calamari ($8), which was tender and not too chewy. I also had the portobello pizza with truffle oil ($9). There was literally one slice of portobello on each slice of pizza. Most of the entrees were around $9-10 at lunch.

It's a fine neighborhood restaurant but nothing to go out of your way for.

Editorial from

No place on the Peninsula epitomized the celebrity chef craze of the early '90s like Joey Altman's Wild Hare. While his wild-game fusion cuisine ultimately failed to be the right match for suburban Menlo Park, Oak City Bar & Grill manages…
