Diner Reviews
  • "First time at Oak Tavern. We showed up at about 9:30 for a 10:00 PM reservation and were greeted by two beautiful girls at the front desk - very friendly and accommodating. We were offered a table outside right away or wait for an inside table - we chose to wait and had drinks at the bar. Very friendly atmosphere and a great bartender. At about 10:15 we walked back to the front desk and they had a table ready for us - a great corner booth. The waitress was great, the food was eclectic and very well prepared. We had appetizers - the lamb meatballs and cod croquettes were wonderful, large plates - lamb chops and red snapper - and dessert - cherry pie - with a bottle of wine - highly recommended and not expensive either."

  • "Since Michael's Genuine started, quite a few restaurants have copied the concept, with more or less success. Oak Tavern is definitely a concept restaurant which does its job well. The ambience is clean and pleasant without overdoing it, service is impecable, and the food was very good. The apperizers are vey small, but delicious, and the entrees, albeit also on the small size, perfectly presented and quite filling. All in all a pleasant experience, with one little critic, if I may: why do restaurants in general, including this one, gouge its patrons with way overpriced alcoholic drinks? I know this is a great money maker, but if the prices were a bit more "reasonable" than the competition, more patrons would go and consume more!"

  • "We always feel good when we are there. Great menu, tasty food, great atmosphere either inside or outside, and always great hospitality. Prices very reasonable. The kale salad was very tasty, as well as the octopus, sea urchin, sea scallops and salmon. Can't ask for tastier food. The biscuits are addictive! We have always found that the manager, Gary, to be extremely professional, sharp and very personable. We are looking foward to going back again."

  • "the food and service are excellent. The pork and the short ribs are among the best I have eaten. The only thing to watch out for is that it can be a bit noisy..especially inside...if you want a quiet place, this is not for you."

  • "This restaurant is a longtime favorite of mine. The Pot de creme is something I talk about to everyone. I was a bit disappointed when I noticed that they had taken some favorites off the menu and limited the choices and raised the prices a bit. Also, the vegatarian options are a bit limited. I still love the place though and will have to return for the dessert and drinks"

  • "I have now been for brunch and dinner and was not impressed. The descriptions sound better than the dishes. The prices are also a bit high for what you get. I ordered the veggie pizza and for almost $20 it's very small. The description had squash flowers and I didn't see any--just a ton of zucchini. The biscuits they give everyone are good. I remember my husband saying that the brunch portions were also not that big for the prices. The outside is great for outdoor dining and they seem to have a pretty extensive cocktail menu."

  • "Tavern takes some of the favorites and ups them. The pastrami is house made. The burger has an edge. Even the ketchup is homemade with its own distinctive flavor. Recognizable food with an unexpected twist. +1"

  • "I've been several times for dinner and happy hour and recently for brunch. All I can say is WOW. We had the deviled eggs, pancakes, eggs benedict, and smoked salmon. Every dish was perfect, had it's own uniqueness, and absolutely delicious. It was my friends' first time and they couldn't stop raving and wondering why they hadn't been there before."

  • "We ordered the crab stuffed omelette, oatmeal and chicken and waffles, lots of Bellini's and Mimosa's. The omelette and oatmeal was wonderful. The Bellini's and mimosas kept coming - wonderful. However the chicken and waffles was terrible. The waffle was so hard, it was like a brick and the chicken was extra greasy and tasted like it had sugar in it. It was quite disgusting. I pulled the chicken apart and tried to eat the inside but it still wasn't any good. So I sent it back. They did t take it off the ticket, but it's ok. The service was excellent, eclectic and wonderful server. The valet was excellent as well. We sat outside and it was like an English garden scene....great....would've been perfect if my meal was good."

  • "This was not my first time for brunch but it will be my last! Food was very disappointing. Ordered two sticky buns and when the waitress brought them it looked liked one was half eaten. The burratta appetizer was so small it was only enough for one! Eggs were overcooked. Brought my son from out of town here to eat and I was very disappointed. Have dinner plans to entertain here in a week but not sure now. "

  • "We were looking for a place to have a late night dinner after the theater in downtown. So happy we found Oak. We tried a number of the appetizers, never even got to trying the meals. The Octopus a la plancha was fantastic, and there is no way to adequately describe how good the bacon marmalade and blue cheese toast tasted."

  • "I reported these people to the Health Department. I ordered the coconut crusted French toast with bananas, whipped cream and chocolate shavings. My daughter and I were enjoying it, it was delicious....until I bit down on something hard which was so strange because this was melt in your mouth French toast, nothing hard about it. I pulled the hard object out of my mouth and it turned out to be a large piece of broken glass! I was completely freaked out and didn't trust or want to eat any more of the food. Both the waiter and manager were very blasé when I told them about the glass, as though all they'd done was serve me a dish that didn't taste good. I understand things break, mistakes happen but the blasé attitude was like this was normal."

  • "Had been wanting to try this restaurant for a while and finally went for lunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. My tuna with salad was simply awful. Greens were oversaturated with oil and the tuna was overly spiced with a very unflavorful marinade. Bread was burnt and greasy. My friend said the halibut was good. The only saving grace was the coconut sorbet for dessert. Server was attentive. Way too expensive for the quality of the food. Would definitely not go back."

  • "We came here with our friends visiting from France. They loved the place....great food and wonderful service. If you can make the French happy with a restaurant, you are clearly doing something right. They loved the friendly staff and service. We started with the charcuterie platter; and the table ordered a couple of burgers, two salmon and risotto plates and the sea scallop plate. Finished with inventive desserts. The wine list is short but well balanced. We picked the Bianchi Petite Sirah, which perfect for the variety of dishes. And again, our friends thought the wine was spectacular. Between the River and Oak, you can't go wrong. Keep it up the good work David."

  • "Great casual dining. Imaginative selection of small and large plates. Casual setting, delicious and tapas-driven, and fairly reasonable pricing. Nice selection of craft beers and good off-the-track wine list. So much change in the Design District, yet Oak remains a stalwart."

  • "the ambiance and food were outstanding. We sat at the bar for about an hour prior to sitting down for dinner. The bartender was amazing, he offered samplings of the beers before we ordered and made excellent recommendations. We sat for dinner on the outside patio and the setting was gorgeous at sunset. Our food was great, our only complaint was the service outside. The restaurant was not seemingly busy, but our waiter took his sweet time to make stops to our table. Drinks ordered would arrive after asking a second or third time for them. We ordered a mixture of small plates, flatbread, oysters and large plates and the order in which the food arrived was in no specific order. The oysters were beyond amazing and very clean."

  • "Even WITH 8p reservation our party of 4 had to wait over 40minutes. When I approached the manager after waiting 30min the manager said, "30min waiting is industry standard." Not acceptable. Wine glasses had that fishy dish washer smell and our waiter didn't even apologize and disappeared for 10min before showing up with new glasses. Food was a poor version of a Famous restaurant across street. "

  • "The small plates were fantastic. We picked this place solely off Open Table's recommendations, and the food was super delicious and flavorful, the atmosphere was great and lively. We liked the cocktails as well, although the second round was more lackluster (my manhattan was watered down, and the fruity cocktails were not accompanied by fruit). The small plates were the best, and our entrees were all excellent."

  • "Couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate my birthday! Sat outside which was beautiful, felt like we were somewhere in Napa not Midtown Miami. We were a group of 8 so we sampled pretty much the entire menu and everything was delicious! Definitely recommend ordering a bunch of small plates so you can try a bit of everything. We kept the wine flowing and our waiter was excellent. Crab toast was delicious and fresh, Bacon Marmalade Toast is a must, Bison Carpaccio gets 2 thumbs up, Gnocchi were spectacular, we also had Fava Bean agnolotti, Burrata (yum!!), Kale Salad, Roasted Beets and Bacalao Croquettes-all very good! The Duck Pizza was different and Delicious! Scallop with lentil entrée was top notch and salmon and skirt steak delish!"
