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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
