Good food nice setting.
Food was good
Carlos was great and we had 6 kids 6 adults
Kevin is awesome
We were tired from our busy day so dinner in the hotel was a nice option. The patio was beautiful and we could enjoy the live music from next door (at the bar) without it being too loud. The food was delicious, the menu complete. It was a bit pricey but not more than most hotel restaurants. We would definitely make this choice again.
We dine at Oak Grill once a week and we are never disappointed. The great experience begins with the valet parking service, continues with the hostess, the servers and the runners who bring your food to the table. The manager , Milan, stops by the assure everything was in order. We usually sit outside so we can enjoy the wonderful patio and the music that spills over from the fireside dining area. Then when we leave - the valet parking service tops off the night.
I have to eat gluten free. They will adapt almost anything on the menu for me. But what is the best thing is that my friends and family love there food too. The waiters watch and your party sets the pace. I have been there when we were in a hurry for a business lunch. And we were our in 30 minutes. This time was a birthday for a good friend that I had not seen in months. We stayed for four hours. They did not rush us but our glass were never low. Love this place.
Had a great time with my family. Luis, our server was great and had an awesome personality which made our experience at the restaurant that much better! All of our food was amazing and will definitely come back and try their brunch!
We chose Oak Grill because it was one of the only places in Newport that we hadn't been. We were surprised to find it in a hotel but that surprise was positive. The service was exemplary. Our waiter was knowledgeable, kind and funny. He checked in on us numerous times but not too many.
We ordered a lovely seafood salad and the lamb porterhouse was delicious. I would recommend the pineapple butter cake for dessert.
Perfect for a nice date!
Great service great food!
oak grill has amazing food and wonderful customer service!
Great location for a quick one hour lunch meeting instead of dealing with the long lines and wait across the street at Fashion Island. The food is good but not a place where I would take someone with a "foodie" palate. The patio seating is absolutely wonderful and is quiet enough to conduct business meetings. Service is always OUTSTANDING and frequently outshines the food.
We eat here a lot because the patio is so pleasant. However it can be windy as the breeze comes up from the ocean so bring a sweater.
Excellent food is delicious
Went for brunch before the spa for my bday with girlfriends. Had the best time! Did not feel rushed, they accommodated all of our requests, and had the best service by Carlos. Great ambiance, even though the weather was gloom, and the rest of the staff (bartender, hostess, etc.) were fantastic.
I really love the food here, the weather even gave me a free dessert which was amazing. Definitely will be back and recommend it highly
I had lunch and dinner there since I was staying in the hotel. Both meals tasted great.
Our waiter was darling.-The Hawaiian ! We live in Irvine and came for a staycation but we will definitely come back for dinner again. And we will request the Hawaiian be our waiter!
Food took a long time to receive and when it did arrive it was not correct.
Items needed to be requested multiple times.
I would not go back since there are much better places very close to it.
Been there several times, and the food is always excellent.
This restaurant is part of The Island Hotel, the outside dining area was nice. A little chilly but we chose to sit out there. We had the tuna poke and the bacon wrapped pork chop. The food was good and the service was good but the overall experience was just ok. We had a bottle of water with our meal, we gave up alcohol for Lent. Our bill was still over $80 so this place is a little pricey.
Valentina was wonderful! Service and food terrific! Desserts not as outstanding As the entrees and appetizers
Really great food. My filet was the best I ever had.
Wonderful food and great ambiance. Highly recommend the Chilean Sea Bass...yum!!!
A great place for dinning. We love the outside patio and in general the food is quite good. This is a beautiful restaurant with a great staff.
This was our first visit to Oak Grill. We had the pleasure of dining outside which I highly recommend. The ambiance was very nice. The food was excellent and the service exceptional. We will definitely dine at Oak grill again.
Amazing experience all together! Thank you 😀
Food was very good, service was excellent and the patio is beautiful. Go here every time we’re in Newport Beach and always great.
I was traveling on my own and ate at the Oak Grill a few times. Each time I was comfortable and completely satisfied with my experience. Great food and they were attentive to my gluten free needs. The staff was very good. I saw them interacting with an very elderly couple who evidently were regulars. They treated this couple like family. Very nice to see.
This is a great place to go for a quiet leisurely lunch. I had the Ono special, and it was outstanding. The service was friendly and efficient. It was a little windy outside, so we ate inside, but I have dined on the patio before, and it is very pleasant. They also validate parking. I highly recommend the Oak Grill.
Lovely ambiance for any occasion. Quiet garden gathering place with excellent service and food.
Kevin and Justin, our sever, were fabulous! Attentive and on point! Tried the special and it was delicious - Mongolian lamb chops accompanied with cous cous. Lamb was made perfectly and the sauce was not overwhelming.
Exceeded expectations indeed! Sea bass was delish too and the mushroom risotto wasn’t too heavy.
Kudos to the Chef and team!
A must- table on the terrace. LOVED THE TERRACE! Ambiance was lovely! Will definitely return.
Have been to the Oak Grill many times and it is always excellent. This last visit, on a late January Sunday evening was pleasantly quiet. The food was great and the service was very good until we paid the check. We lingered about another 30 minutes, and the Grill had only about 3 or 4 tables, but our sever, or any other employee came to the table to ask if we wanted anything else, not even water. Very odd behavior for an otherwise first class operation.
A friend and I wanted to have brunch before a movie on Sunday. We selected the Oak Grill because my friend wanted to have waffles and I wanted something light and healthy. The Oak Grill was able to satisfy both of us with tasty and well presented entrees. My friend had the Belgium waffles with lots of syrup and I had the swordfish sandwich. The waffles were a lovely golden brown and the syrup was of good quality. The swordfish was nicely prepared with small fried pickles and fresh tomato slices. The roll looked very good but its January and starch is not in the diet right now. The restaurant was pleasantly busy but not overwhelming with activity which is just right for Sunday.
The Oak Room is always a "must" when we visit the OC. Food is very good, the patio area is very comfortable and relaxing and the atmosphere is like a mini-vacation onto itself.
All great but the loud obnoxious music from next door! A hotel is not a disco!! Awful
The outside patio is amazing. Such a great ambience! Love the trees and the lights and the food is terrific! We dined here for lunch during restaurant week and our meal was fabulous!
I love the Fashion Island Hotel! Service top notch!
Love the ambience and service. Food portion is small though
It was so good and excellent service we had. There was live music as well and it was the most beautiful date I’ve had.
