Oak and coal slaps so effing hard!!! I’m telling you. I moved back to nyc and even w all the top tier places I have access to, I miss this place. Just had it while visiting and impressed as always

A wonderful Japanese Yakatori, and other great sharables like the garlic noodles. Ambience is great, especially in the bar section. Service is friendly.

I’ve never written a review before. I’m one of those lazy ones who has read hundreds of Amazon & Yelp reviews to help me make purchasing/ dining decisions but I’ve never taken the time to actually write my own review. Well Oak & Coal deserves the exception! I’ve just been absolutely mind blown by the quality and freshness of the food (please try the Salmon Crudo…it’s straight butter 😍) , by the creative and delicious cocktails (the Tokyo gimlet is so refreshing and fragrant..absolute perfection!) but really the reason I’m writing this is that, even though I would have returned here for the food alone, the staff went absolutely ABOVE & BEYOND for me this evening. I’m dealing with elderly sick parents at the moment who are in hospital and Hailey (sp?) was so incredibly kind, thoughtful, generous and supportive…literally made me cry! And I don’t cry easily. Incredibly moved by how strangers (the staff) decided to show up and give me a bit of hope in humanity this evening. Thank you for running an amazing business! I’ll be back 🙏

We ordered take out today. 6 different dishes 1.Steamed Chicken lemongrass dumplings 9/10 The noodle around was so delicious. I loved the texture and flavor. The lemongrass chicken was well seasoned and also really good. 2. Bao Buns 10/10 These came with a twist. I somehow thought of Bao, round, steamed dumpling. But these were more like little Tacos , except the shell was a Bao Bun. Flavor was amazing. The little sprouts added a little tinge of spice , the ginger was pickled and sweet and a little sour. The pork belly tasted smokey and juicy. Overall perfect! 3. Kurobuta Pork Belly Skewers 12/10 Omg!!! This! Coming from germany I am used to grilling pork belly. We call it either "belly-rag" - "Baulappen" or a "grill-torch" - "Grillfackel" (name explains itself, since they love to light on fire due to the high fat consent. The smoky flavor and seasoning was on point. I loved that they weren't dried out. Just pure deliciousness . 4. Plain Garlic Noodles 8/10 The noodles were ok , overall really greasy and sloppy. The flavor was good , but I wouldn't order them again, others loved them. 5. Blistered Brussle Sprouts 8/10 Generally really good , crispy and a mild spiciness. What we noticed was that a lot of the dishes included lemon flavor. I liked it but others commented that it was generally too much 6. Chicken Karaage 6/10 We somehow expected something totally different. The thighs were jucy , but not as crispy as we thought they would be. The batter reminded me of calamari and my brain tricked me and said - that's calamari! It somehow weirded me out and I didn't want to finish the chicken. But this is my own opinion someone else's brain might not play mind games. The ordering happened over the homepage and was super easy. We didn't even wait 30minutes. The food was hot and fresh. This was definitely not our last time. Thank you for making dinner for us ❤️

Not a bad thing on the menu! Salmon Krudo and Chicken skewers are highly recommended.
