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.

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.

We were there for Newport Beach Restaurant Week. The pre fixed menu had some great items at such a great price. But had we had to pay the normal pricing I don't think I would have come here. The food was good but nothing super special. The service was not bad but it was not exactly on point either. I would probably only come here for Restaurant Week.

We went to Oak Grill on New Year's Day - that may have been our first mistake. Although we sat inside, the room was freezing. The waiters kept making things worse by leaving the large sliding glass doors to the patio open every time they went in and out. Our waiter was pleasant enough but very inattentive (maybe he had a hangover?) and couldn't tell us if there were any specials . Two of us ordered the lobster salad, which consisted of a few bites of lobster, lettuce and a few kernels of corn. It was okay, but it didn't seem like an entree-sized salad. Because we were still hungry, we asked for some bread. The waiter said he had to put some in the oven. We never got our bread, and when we asked another waiter about it, he said they didn't have any bread! What restaurant doesn't have bread? Anyway, I don't think we'll be back - it was a mediocre experience.

We went for christmas eve for the prix fixed meal with my parents that traveled to Ca for the holidays. The food was horrible and $90 per person. Plus there was no wine pairing option. The salad tasted like the lettuce was not rinsed at all and had nothing but 2 nuts and 3 cranberrys in it and a dab of dressing. The soup was completely flavorless and loaded with salt. The prime rib they served with no au jus. The steak itself was so bland that you had to ask for salt and pepper shakers to eat it. The risotto had squash in it that was so undercooked it was almost unchewable. Dessert was good. I am so embarassed to bring my family there for what should be a very special dinner. On top of all of that it seemed like they hired new waitresses and buss boys for the night. Nobody new if their was a wine pairing. I had wine spilled on me. A spoon dropped on me. The waitress was trying but really did not know what she was doing. The good thing was if we asked for au jus, salt, pepper, etc she made sure to have a runner go and get it asap. At the end of the night my parents bought the $650 dinner for our Christmas gift and I was mortified when they were signing the check and it looked like my dad was going to pass out because our family is not well off and this was supposed to be a special treat but turned out to be a complete flop.
