Diner Reviews
  • "The server was extremely unfamiliar with the menu, unable to describe what things were because he "didn't get a chance to try it," and he made no offer to find out and report back. Two of the three steaks our table ordered were severely overcooked and were sent back. The manager offered to comp dessert. We ordered two desserts to share, and the manager brought one of the desserts, truffles, over in a to-go box. Only problem was that there were three truffles for four people. Apparently he talked to the server, came over and tried to say that those truffles were for someone else and that our desserts would be out shortly. Overall, food was decent once cooked properly, but I expect the server to know and be able to explain the holiday menu."

  • "The atmosphere was a little loud that night due to it being immediately after a KU basketball game. We were looking for a quiet semi-romantic restaurant for our anniversary. It was a little close quarters and loud for that type of celebration....but the food was delicious, our waiter very helpful and nice, and will definitely come back again for the food."

  • "Service was friendly and courteous, but slow, slow, slow. Food was OK, but disappointing for the price. Won't be back."

  • "Service was bad. Slow; 20 minutes just to get water, an hour for the food to arrive. One order was incorrect. The food is okay but not worth the $50 per person cost. The location and atmosphere are great. However, it appears the restaurant relies on one-time patrons who are staying at the hotel. I can't see too many locals making this a regular stop. Although I can see those higher socioeconomic class patrons returning to this restaurant. The only guest we observed receiving good service was the KU football coach. This restaurant should consider that service is part of the product. For now they can probably rely on the local social elite and unsuspecting hotel guests, until the poor services compels them from returning too."

  • "I took my wife, oldest son, and his youngest daughter (my granddaughter) to an evening dinner at The Oread on Christmas Day. Our reservations were handled very well, the staff greeted us and had our table set very elegantly. My salmon was absolutely cooked to perfection and our food and drinks were all very satisfying. The price is a little high but I will return to this restaurant often. Thank you Oread for adding to our Christmas Day."

  • "I don't know were to start the service was horrible the food was cold and barely edible. I had to get up and get my own condiments the server was no were to be found!! We would have complained if we would have ever seen the server or a manager before the bill came. We had two small children with us and making a scene was not how I wanted to spend my Christmas Eve. After a extended time of waiting for the check we were just relieved to get out off of there and don't have any intentions of coming back!!"

  • "The online menu had a nice selection of veggie stuff, but when we got there it was a different menu and we didn't want any of the few veggie options. So the waiter bot the chef to come out to talk to us and see what we might like. He came up with a really nice dish of portabello and asparagus with bearnaise sauce and thinly-sliced sauteed zucchini and yellow squash with chopped tomatoes and garlic. The waiter was terrific, which added to the pleasantness of the evening. The desert --- creme brulee --- was overpowered by a mountain of whipped cream and a little heavy. We were the only customers, which probably helped the chef's and waiter's attentiveness, but we're grateful anyway."

  • "On KU game days they cut the menu in half (already small) with almost nothing from the regular menu. The website never said anything about a game day menu! I had the "French Chicken"-good, but the dish only had mashed potatoes (incomplete). Music from a wedding reception meant that we virtually had to scream at one another. Poor communication between the front and back of the house as well. Most of their desserts are also bought from a distributor, not in-house. The bread they brought us was tasteless. They do not carry most of the wines in their large booklet of wines choices. With all these problems, the manager was very nice and very apologetic. He comped the meal and asked us to return...hmmm, not sure. If so, it will most likely"

  • "While the service was good, the quality and variety of food has diminished. My husband's pasta was bland and my fish was over-cooked and greasy. On a Wednesday, they were out of crab cakes and another entrée. The desserts were the same as always although my crème brulee was smaller than last time."
