There were four of us for dinner. Four different entrees and all decidedly meh, just okay. Sides were cold and mushy, chicken dry, calamari soggy, frites ice cold and soggy. Good service but we won't be back !

I'm most fond of the bar/pub area with cozy tables and lovely fire, but the main dining room offers an elegant experience for dining and special occasions. Menu is broad enough to serve many moods and tastes. On the pricey side, but you can expect good quality food, prepared well, with good service.

Love to sit at the bar and have either a full meal or just apps and a couple of drinks. Great atmosphere and service.

Excellent food- both in the bar and restaurant. Great pizza made in a huge 750 degree oven. Wonderful menu with a wide variety of food options.

Recommended by friends we visited on Thursday. Excellent food and service, very varied menu and we were warmly welcomed by a bar tender we know from another establishment. Can't wait to go back!

Had brunch at Scarlet Oak with my wife and it was fantastic. Having been to Gibbet Hill (owned by the same folks) many times and expecting the same level of quality and excellence I can say that I was relieved and very happy! Avocado eggs Benedict was done perfectly filling. My wife had the goat cheese and asparagus omelet which... More

Nothing better than having a drink and splitting an appetizer next to the fireplace in the lounge area. Flatbread pizza right out of oven is as good as it gets. Charming, warm and friendly, you can't go wrong at the Scarlet Oak.

I have been wanting to try the Scarlet Oak Tavern for years, finally got a chance last weekend with my husband for Sunday lunch. The decor of the Tavern is exactly what I was hoping for, casual and comfortable. My husband got the seafood appetizer which consisted of lobster, oysters and shrimp, how can you go wrong with that!? He... More

If you want a consistent martini or glass of great wine, with a not-too-loud atmosphere, good for kids, families, first dates, blind dates, impromptu dates, girls nights, couples night out....this works for all that! Great for a couple to sit at the bar. Try to snag a table by the fireplace if you're eating and a group of 4. The... More
