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.
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'...view mores a fine neighborhood restaurant but nothing to go out of your way for.view less
