Oasis Café was a great choice for our late Mother's Day breakfast-brunch. The patio was charming and the food verged on decadent (or maybe they just used a lot of butter—it was delicious in any case). We ended up spending just about $35 before the tip for our party of three. It was fun to people watch and we took advantage of the 20% off coupon at the bookstore afterwards. I would recommend this place for special occasions where you don't want to break the bank.
Other than my girlfriend and I being seated on 2 different patios for approximately 20 minutes before discovering each other, the meal was great!
As usual the food was great and the place is nice and welcoming, our waitress was not feeling well I guess, we had to ask other servers for the things we needed.
Come for nice get away, and enjoy the taste sensational journey. From starter to dessert. You'll fall in love
Took 30 minutes for food to come out. Very slow service
Another great meal at Oasis Cafe. Every time we go we always wonder why we do not go there more often. It never disappoints. Great food and drink.
The food was really good but the service was terrible. We waited at least 20 minutes before we were greeted by our waitress. The table behind us who had at least 8 people didn't even order their food for at least 35 minutes even though staff walked by their table multiple times. Our drinks never stayed refilled and the staff just seemed clueless. Even though I really enjoyed the food I wouldn't go again because the service was so awful.
Super dinner. Wish they had wild salmon rather than farm raised. Had the Mahi Mahi which was very tasty. Rest of the group enjoyed their meals
What a great spot for fresh interesting food! I would call the menu contemporary American with vegan and gluten free options available. Sat outside on the lovely spacious patio. The ambience, food and service were excellent!
Great food and loved the shop.
Amazing! I would eat brunch here every day if I could!
Went for work lunch with a Vegetarian person and a Gluten-free person. Each of us loved the food our food selections. Just wish I would have had time to peruse the book/gift store contained on the premises because to me, that is part of the experience.
Brought in a group from out of town. We sat outside. Great ambiance. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the dessert. I've been here many times and the service was a bit slower than usual. It took awhile to get our drink order in and another wait to get our food order in. We weren't in a rush so it was no big deal. The service just wasn't what it usually is.
I've been to Oasis before and was always impressed. This last Sunday for brunch I was a little disappointed. Service was slow, we had to remind them to bring our stuff, like coffee, ketchup, silverware. The food was cold when it got to the table. Also, the taste wasn't that impressive either. I'll wait a while before I go back.. maybe there were understaffed this Sunday and that's why it wasn't the best.
I'm never disappointed when I come to Oasis. The sesame crusted ahi tuna is delish.
Such a lovely environment. Food and service always good.
Great dinner and right amount of service
Four of us eat dinner at The Oasis before every SLAC performance. My wife and I also eat lunch here a half dozen times a year. We're big fans of the Oasis for the freshness of the food, excellent wait staff, and an inviting setting. Lindsey is a terrific server; we always enjoy this pre-theater treat.
The food was fresh and tasty. Cute cafe amazing coffee!
We love Lisa (Mimi)!!! Food was great as always.
Oasis Cafe always has good food and service. I appreciate the no corkage fee so that I can bring and try different wines not usually available in local restaurants. It was too cold for the patio this visit but that's a great space.
Marty, our server was excellent. Halibut special cooked to perfection. Mediterranean salad is huge. Roasted tomato and fennel soup delicious, as was the beet tower salad. We wish this restaurant was closer to the theaters and symphony hall, so we wouldn't have to drive to it before a concert. But it is worth the drive and time spent.
Our server, Marty, was superb. The food was fantastic, if a bit pricey for the portions. The problem we encountered was a group of young women next to us, who had a volume and mood of conversation more fitting for a bar or casual pub dining experience, which cramped our celebration dinner as we could no longer hear each other and ended up eating and leaving quickly.
Tried and true, friendly, a little quirky, with very good food on the healthy side.
The only complaint was that we had 5 in our party and they put us on a small 4 person table and wasn't room for all of the items we ordered.
There was a 6 person table that was free and later on they seated 4 people there. Kinda ticked me off.
The food and service were excellent, they make all items from scratch. Food came out piping hot and full of flavor, will for sure go back again and try their dinner items.
Great food and great service! My go-to place when I have a group of diverse dietary preferences like vegetarian, vegan and “will eat anything”! Love that we can also get adult beverages.
Great food, great service, to pricy, to noisy. Next time I will ask to be seated away from the noisy table. And turn the volume down on the music.
Lovely experience. I love coming here now! Easter brunch was really good.
Valentine's dinner was perfect.
Great food, very reasonable price, excellent service. Comfortable relaxed environment w both indoor and outdoor seating.
I normally always have a good experience at Oasis. This last Sunday for brunch, it was just kinda...meh. I got the omelette with side potatoes. The omelette was watery, the potatoes tasted stale. Not terrible, just kinda average. My glass for the tea had lipstick stains on it. We pointed it out to our server, honestly he could have cared less. He brought a new one, which was fine. No apology or even a general acknowledgement that it was anything out of the ordinary. Anyway, like i said, I normally always have a good experience here. Hopefully Sunday was just an anomaly.
Lisa our server was simply amazing.
Waiter was great -- efficient and friendly. Food was very good. I've been there before and this was another good experience.
Really nice gem of a restaurant next to a bookstore. They have something for everyone, and the food was all delicious. Extremely reasonably priced, and the patio outdoors looked like it would be really nice in the summer. Highly recommend!
The service is outstanding. The food is okay but not great.
This was my first time dining at Oasis, and I definitely will go back. Everyone in our group ordered a different lunch item and the consensus was that everyone's food was delicious! I especially liked that the Reuben Sandwich could be ordered with Portobello Mushroom rather than Pastrami. The service was excellent and the prices won't "break the bank." To avoid a wait, I recommend making a reservation especially if you have a large group.
Highly recommend! Love this restaurant! Delicious! I had tomato, fennel soup and beef salad.
one thing we always like about Oasis is browsing the attached book store before or after dining.
Great experience! We've been for brunch several times but just never thought about going for dinner. Very happy with the service, food (salmon was amazing) and price!! We will be back!
It was great!
