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.

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.

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!
