Very good food and service, but very loud. We always enjoy the diversity of the menu and the eager-to-please wait staff, plus the chef is willing to accommodate dietary restricitons. We look forward to going back when school starts back!
A unique place where the students make up the menu, cook and serve it. 4 course meal is perfect size for lunch. Been there 4 times always good and different. Love to take out of town guests as special gourmet spot.
food and service is always excellent
Enjoyed the experience and will be back again. It's fun trying a new menu that we would normally never try. Looking forward to bring friends to share this experience. The wait for the different courses is fast service so you can enjoy the new experience.
We've eaten at the Oaks several times over the past two years since we first learned about it and taken friends there. In the past we thoroughly enjoyed the food. I made the reservation to celebrate my husband's 83rd birthday. What a disappointment. No choices this time, just the set 4-course meal. The best thing we had was the coffee.
The bistro has changed its menu format from previous years, but as always, they never fail to please. Now serving a "tasting menu" of four smaller courses, the food is just the right amount... Filling, without the heaviness. The meal was flavorful from start to finish, and the presentation was detailed and lovely. What a phenomenal place to eat, especially considering that the entire bistro is operated by high school students. Worth a visit...
All 4 of the people at our table were impressed by the food and its presentation. We'll be back!
Bistro at the Oaks is a great place to eat. The food is always wonderful.
This was our first time at the Bistro. We had heard wonderful things about it and were not disappointed in our food. Our reservation was at 11:45. Everything went well until we had finished our entree. Our servers had vanished. There were three servers in the dining room and they all seemed to be waiting on other tables. No one checked on us to see if we needed anything. After quite a long wait I finally flagged down a young man man at the register. He removed our plates and someone brought us dessert. She sat the dessert down and walked away without any comment. I had to call them back to ask for coffee for two of our party. No one ever came back to ask if we needed more coffee or anything else. I would have loved a second glass of water,
As always, Chef Dara Lavallee, Chef Hester, and all of the students put on a great spread. Everything was absolutely wonderful!!! A definite hidden gem - too bad they are not open year round - only during the school year!!!
We are fortunate to have this training facility in our community. My guest and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. This was my guest first visit and she said she would definitely return.
Love this place. The food is always good and the service is great.
Excellent food - taste, presentation, service all excellent!
Always professional and always done in a top notch manner. The students at the school are learning so much about how the world operates by being able to be a part of this element of life. The care and effort put into my meal and experience is always better than I could have hoped to have.
This is a wonderful way to help students learn the restaurant business and they do a great job. The value is very good, you won't be disappointed.
Spectacular food. This is a wonderful way for teens to learn the restaurant business from all aspects.
We have eaten her several times and it's always a treat!!
Enjoyed it very much! Great experience. Glad Hall County has this. The food was wonderful and the price is affordable.
Everything was absolutely outstanding!!! What a wonderful gem!!!
Bistro at the Oaks was a wonderful fine dining experience on a fast-food budget! Everything was excellent and top-notch! Not only does the patrons get to enjoy a wonderful meal, but the students gain experience in all aspects of the restaurant industry. What a great opportunity for everyone involved. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone!
As always, Bistro at The Oaks gets a thumbs up, way up! Students and teachers planning, preparing and serving people in the community. This is such a great place. Bravo!
Lovely luncheon with delightful food.
My three friends and I enjoyed the experience of dining at the Bistro. All three began to make plans to bring other friends or family members to lunch. The food was delicious, the service attentive, and the ambience very pleasant. Thank you for providing this wonderful opportunity for the Oakwood-Hall County area.
Great place, food served and prepared with help from students aspiring to become chefs.
We have been to the Oaks several times. The latest gourmet lunch was well received. One visit last year recalls a "new" waitress that unfortunately made the afternoon unpleasant by forgetting us, the food, & everything else. Even a smile was disappearing. I commented about the service, she apologized. but it continued. We held back a visit, but decided to return and glad we did! Thank you. It was a very charming & elegant afternoon for my wife and I.
Service and food was very good.
Fantastic food, service, and atmosphere. I have already strongly recommended The Bistro to numerous people. Can't wait to go again.
This is an excellent restaurant operated partly by students who do a wonderful job. What an opportunity for high school children!
We all found the food to be extremely good and reasonably priced. The service was impeccable.
Loved it! The food was awesome and the staff was very professional. The atmosphere was a pleasant enviornment. I would highly recommend this place and we plan to go back very soon!
Incredible food! I love taking new people here.
Lunch was awesome. Service was the best it has ever been. I recommend this place to everyone I meet. Congratulations to the Bistro for a resounding success. The Italian Wedding Soup was incredible!
We had a wonderful experience and can't wait to go back again. there were 8 of us.
You provide a lovely up-scale dining experience in a small town that fills a void I find here, and for a reasonable price. The atmosphere is inviting and quiet enough to talk. The servers are very professional, and friendly.The food is lovely and beautifully presented. I will definitely be back!!!
Each visit has been so pleasant. The stuents are delightful...wanting to make sure everything is perfect and of course, the food is outstanding. We look forward to our next visit.
Food was very good. Servers were very friendly and prompt.
We've been there many times now, and all other visits have been outstanding to excellent. This one was the first time I've had anything to complain about. They seem to have been a bit understaffed this time as there was too long a wait between being seated and having anyone come to our table with water and menus, then too long a delay before having our order taken. As usual, the food was excellent by any and every standard -- quality, taste, variety, presentation, etc. Loooking forward to my next visit as I'm sure everything will be up to their usual standards of excellence. It is hard to believe that so many of the tasks are performed by high school students. The faculty does a fantastic job, and these young men and women are great.
A great gourmet meal for a fast food price!! How good can it get-- Service was very good and presentation was excellent!!!--I'm coming back -already booked a large group.
The food was awesome and the price is amazing! The student/servers did a fine job and were very curtious.
Lovely lunch location in Oakwood Georgia run by Hall County School High School students who receive school credit while learning a trade. School Principal Cindy Blakley gave my group a tour of the facility and what this location has to offer to the community. Check it out !!
