Our friend are regulars at Oakleaf so we went there for dinner. The place is attractive, located in an old brick mill and well appointed inside. The noise level was very high on a busy Saturday night since the acoustics don't buffer sound at all....More

I've eaten here many times, and always had a great meal. The food is imaginative, uses local ingredients, is fresh, and interesting. Wines are very good, service is excellent. Not the least expensive around, but absolutely great value. This is a restaurant worth traveling to.

This was my second visit to Oakleaf, and I wasn't disappointed on my return. Set in an old textile mill, the white-tablecloth restaurant retains many of the mill's original features: a 25-foot ceiling, exposed beams, large windows overlooking beautiful gardens, a massive sliding door, and...More

The location is rustic and sophisticated. Service was great! Thank you , Ryan! We had the arugula salad and seared beef an both were amazing. Our peaceful lunch date was perfect. Stop buy to enjoy this rehabilitated mill and soak in the history and atmosphere....More

I don't eat red meat and I don't eat any dairy, so we kept bypassing Oakleaf when searching for restaurants on this side of town. But then through serendipity, we attended a dinner at Oakleaf that was a thank-you for patrons of our local NPR...More

We and our neighbors had a delightful brunch at this local restaurant.. it wasn't too crowded and that was great as the acoustics are bad if there are too many customers. We enjoyed the gnocchi, Nona's meatballs, the pasta dish and the pater charcuterie. All...More
