Macy's - The Oak Grill
Thank you...On a Friday night we were caught in downtown traffic so called to let the Oak Grill know we would be a little late. We were assured there was no problem and had a wonderful table waiting for us. The two waitresses working that evening were very busy but we were served in time to get us to the theater for a concert. We enjoyed the popovers and walleye as well as the ambiance of the dining room. It's a quiet place to dine with space between tables that provides privacy for conversation. Our waitress brought us a complimentary parking pass which was an unexpected surprise. Thank you Macy's for a wonderful dining experience.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden Treasure!Went to Oak Grill for an early Friday night dinner and had one of the best dining experiences in Minneapolis in the 4 years we have lived here! Our server was fabulous... from beginning to end, we didn't have to wait or ask for a thing because it felt like she was reading our minds! The carmelized salmon and meatloaf entrees were outstanding, and the popovers were to die for!!! Dessert is a must as well. Prices are unbelievably reasonable... we will definitely be back :-)6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMReasonable Prices/elegant settingThe Oak Grill is an elegant restaurant with reasonable prices. I had the walleye which was cooked to perfection, but the green beans & carrots were over cooked, which I can overlook due to their reasonable prices. They also validate for the Macy's parking ramp.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, mediocre service.The food was very good, the service wasn't. I don't know why I had to pay a full table service charge ($8) when there were only two of us having lunch. Also, the server forgot to give us a parking voucher (we requested it), so we had to go back and get it.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFree wine, and free parking!Lovely, quiet, with beautiful dark wood paneling, white tablecloths... yet, surprisingly reasonable prices. My meatloaf and mashed potatoes were unusual, and delicious, made with spinach and red bell pepper for flavor and moistness. The pop-overs were kind of burnt, and were not brought out right away, but oh well. One reason we ate there, was to take advantage of the voucher for free parking in the ramp, which is so close to entertainment venues. We were finished, and filling our "doggy bags" when our server asked about our plans for the rest of the evening, and then told us that if we'd mentioned it earlier, they offer a free glass of wine to each diner on her way to a show. Too late now, but we wouldn't have imbibed anyway.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic ambience, inexpensiveClassic ambience, inexpensive lunch, quick service.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed our girls luncheonEnjoyed our girls luncheon at the Oak Grill. We love those popovers and the enviroment. It also is a central locatioin to meet.
This time it seemed quite noisy but possible there were other groups enjoying their time together. Usually we find the restaurant failry quite so we can enjoy the conversation of others across the table.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a nice setting with theSuch a nice setting with the fireplace. Our

Good variety of choices on the menu4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were 5 persons on a busyWe were 5 persons on a busy day - the Friday before end of Macy's flower show. We had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation time to be seated (due to the event). I had made table top online reservations and it worked very well, as I had to cancel an earlier in the week reservation, and your online confirmation page gave me the opportunity to modify my reservations to another day! This made it easy for me to change day and time! We had to return a couple of tea orders due to cool water and a popover overdone. All staff was very busy, but did their best to accommodate our wishes. One thing especially I liked - I requested a table for 5 along the wall or in a corner and we had a perfect table for the busy day in the Oak Grill!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the Oak Grill's long-timeI loved the Oak Grill's long-time tradition of serving all diners a perfect large popover fresh out of the oven as my group of four sat down. The Oak Grill made a beautiful and large Asian Salad with fresh greens and veggies, succulent chicken, crispy fried wontons, and a great dressing. Our waitress was pleasant and efficient. At the end of the meal, the waitress brought us each a small piece of excellent German chocolate cake. If you're shopping in Macy's in downtown Minneapolis, or are anywhere nearby over the lunch hour, I highly recommend lunch at the Oak Grill.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWait staff were wonderfulWait staff were wonderful and very helpful.

They have not been brought up with this tradition but they certainly loved the ambience and remarked several times about the beautiful wood and paneling, shields, etc. They were very impressed.
