Just wish the duck was more of the star of the dish. I thought the porchetta was a little overpowering the duck flavor and wish there was more of the duck. Overall it was a fun experience for my wife and I of dining without kids. :)

They recently changed up their menu for Spring and it did not disappoint! The Kung POW Brussel Sprouts were delicious as was the brisket. Great spot for a date night!

I always have a great meal and this time was not any different. The amount they provide fills me up. And the taste is always good. I had the mushroom bisque and the wild mushroom paella. Very interesting dishes that tasted great.

We went here for my niece’s birthday and it absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to go back. The bacon wrapped apricots, foie gras, and Stanley’s meatloaf were our favorite items, but it was all very good! Our waitress was a delight and we received each course quickly. 5/5 experience!

Food was amazingly delicious! Had 3 courses, wine and side dish. Only one dish was just good. Everything else was incredible. Music speaker was a little loud and decor is not great. Prices were fine. Will definitely go back!

We had a foursome for dinner on a Saturday night. The place was packed but they were very good about social distancing. All the servers and senior staff wore masks the entire time. The food was wonderful the pace of the dinner excellent and the service was what we’ve come to expect from their staff, knowledgeable kind and not overbearing.
Overall experience outstanding!

Wonderful neighborhood gem. Always great food and great wine. Was surprised to see it so packed when we ventured out of our COVID cave for a quiet date night. Service was pretty slow because it was so busy - 4 tables that arrived after us had drinks before we'd met a server. Dividers between tables are necessary, but not the best ambiance. It's a tough time to be a restaurant. Hang in there, Oakleys. We'll be back!

We came right before the dinner rush and it was quiet and pleasant with appropriate music and helpful waiters. My date and I had lovely time trying dishes - the Butternut squash soup was a surprising favorite, well worth the money, don't think you'd be disappointed

Friday night so perhaps more energetic atmosphere than anticipated, but that was ok—could still hear dinnermate easily. Delicious entree, enjoyable waiter—just the right amount of engagement.

My fiancé and I went to Oakley’s for Valentines Day. Hands down one of the 3 best meals I have ever had in my life. Started with the shrimp corn dogs which were amazing. Then had lobster bisque which was the soup of the day. Excellent. Fiancé had the Amish chicken which she allowed me to try. Chicken was cooked to perfection! As was the ribeye filet that I chose. Finished the meal out with Dan’s chocolate bar which was top notch. Our server Emily and all the wait staff was outstanding.
