Went on a weekday for lunch - glad we had a reservation as they were very busy. Great food and exceptional service (thanks Jasmine!). Crab burger and turkey/avocado sandwich were both delicious, and there were many other items on the lunch menu that I want to try, so definitely will return!!

Scarlet oak is a staple for us. We order out often, take friends a lot and celebrate special occasions here. The steak, tuna tartare and cod are delicious. Save room for the carrot cake~ yummy. We recently celebrated a huge milestone as a party of 9 ladies and the waitresses bought our desserts! What a kind gesture. We will continue... More

Four friends met here for lunch. The atmosphere is great at lunch. The room is bright and the feel is modern. The service is good. I would not say this is over the top, best food I ever ate. But the atmosphere, the setting and the service made this a perfect place for four friends to meet, eat together and... More

This is our first time here. We went before Christmas for our anniversary on a Monday night with reservations. The place was packed !!!!! Even with the reservations it was still a 30 min wait. Not happy at this point. We found two seats at the bar near the pizza oven so we took them rather than wait 30 min.... More

I went with my husband for our Friday night date -we hadn't been in a long time-- This Friday night was a mistake, I thought it would be a nice dining experience- the noise level in the dining room was so high, we were seated in the area where the wait staff came in and out of the kitchen-so too...

We arrived early for a drink and the bar was packed at 5:00 on Saturday, no seats, slow service, bartenders were overwhelmed. We waited a while and then finally got a seat and ordered a couple of drinks and chips and dip app which was tasty, although there could have been a few more chips. Our reservation for 6:30, for...

We brought clients here for a dinner. Food was fresh and delicious, quality meal. Great wine selection. For the season the very large parking lot was full. Will come again in the future.

Although we generally avoid eating out on holidays, the Scarlet Oak Tavern did a great job managing large crowds for Thanksgiving Dinner. The best part - it was NOT a buffet - rather there was a terrific special menu for the day with several options for each and every course. My octogenarian mother ordered lobster tale/filet and loved it! We... More
