Oak & Ember Mashpee

A co worker asked if we had tried the latest incarnation of the place that started out as Restaurant Heather, then Bistro 36 and now Oak & Ember. Has anyone heard anything about this place? TIA.

  1. I was across the street today at a neighboring business. I asked the owner about the place. She said it has potential but they have a lot of kinks to work out. It looks pretty. So many dining spots in that area that are consistent according to this business owner. She loves Soprano's, Sienna and Wicked. Mashpee is far from where I tend to dine so cannot personally comment. I have dined nearby at Bleu and liked it very much. Let us know how it goes when you try O&E.

      I've heard good things about Soprano's, especially since the move into the new location. Never a fan of Sienna and I've been several times. Just nothing stands out to me and some meals have been pretty pedestrian. Wicked is okay, but wouldn't travel for it. And my experience at Bleu was off also. I do like Asia in the Commons. Pretty good sushi and the only bibimbap I know of on the Cape. Strange that the location of Oak & Ember has had such turnover. It is indeed a lovely room and each previous owner did a great job with the food IMO.

        My in-laws live nearby, and they've frequented all of the places mentioned here, and I've been to all of them as well, except for the latest incarnation of Oak & Ember. They tell me it's "meh"--they liked Bistro 36, but that place seemed to run out of steam near the end. Soprano's is good, but can be heavy. I agree with CCG, Siena isn't very good, but I'd really like it to be--I love the space. Wicked is fair, I actually prefer the sandwiches to the pizza. Also agree that Asia is good for sushi, but I don't love the ambience.

        I do, however, love Bleu. I've had 3 great meals there in a row, and their potato crusted halibut is one of the best fish dishes I've ever had on the Cape (only Blackfish has been better)
