Food was amazing, however, for the price we paid we expected prompter service. Service was good, we did wait for initial check in for our waiter to greet us at the table for about 10 minutes and didn’t have that many check ins during our meal resulting in us waiting on drinks and refills and we totally understand the pace was busy. Other than that amazing restaurant.
Great food but they need to cut down on the salt! Please! Food is overall very rich, it would be nice to have some healthy alternatives.
This place never fails to amaze me! The service is impeccable the food is absolutely amazing from plate presentation two flavors that amaze your pallet! We had to starter course specials one was Morales with spring vegetables the other and ahi tuna combination with avocado drizzle. My wife had the cedar plank card special and I had the old standby meatloaf which is out of this world! Chef Steve truly has amazing skills and they run one of the best operations in the entire city!
Outstanding from start to finish. Our waiter Ben was excellent!
Fantastic restaurant with a diverse menu and very fresh ingredients. Highly recommend for a nice date for some quality nutritional food.
Absolutely fantastic—delicious, excellent service, leisurely paced without being slow. Think we just found our favorite date night restaurant!
We were entertaining a neighbor for her birthday. She had never been there before. She and I had the Soup of the Day (Cauliflower Almond) and it was outstanding!!!! Service was excellent and friendly and all of the food was wonderful. We will be back. Thank you so very much!
Steve Oakley has always been consistent throughout his tenure in Indianapolis. His food creations are well thought and executed, the flavors and texture of the meals amazing. Thank you for the pride and love you invest in your creations.
One of the best meals I’ve ever had in Indianapolis! Every course looked like a work of art and tasted even better!
Great menu Interesting selection Something for everyone looking for elevated dining Great service The staff has obviously been well trained . really nice spot for a nice evening
Great atmosphere and delicious menu!
Wonderful place for special dinner or occasion.
Also, the service is great!
Fabulous experience! The food, the service, the atmosphere....everything was absolutely wonderful. The shrimp corn dogs were scrumptious, the salmon tart was incredibly delicious, and the pb&j crepe was an amazing and delectable dessert! Best food and service in the city! Thank you for a lovely lunch. :-)
We had reservations but waited 20 minutes to be seated
Looking for a unique and fresh restaurant for meal with friends. Oakley's menu was excellent. Service was excellent.
Oakley's is always superb as evidenced by their James Bread nomination. This evening he Monkfish was outstanding, as was the chocolate desert.
We did not enjoy our experience. To begin, the hostess just stared at me instead of welcoming us and asking if we had a reservation, very rude. Next, our server basically ignored us. It was 20 minutes before he took our drink order and another 25 minutes before he took our food order. If I am going to spend that kind of money, I expect excellent service.
I had been hearing great things about the food so I decided to go experience Oakley’s for myself. I was amazed. The food was excellent, the shrimp corn dogs and deviled eggs were delicious! I had the salmon for my main entree and it was one of the best salmon entrees I have ever had! The staff was very friendly and provided great service. I will definitely be back and I highly recommend Oakley’s to anyone.
Wonderful meal - great experience!
Fans tad tic food will return
Awesome all around. Food was unique very favorable. Atmosphere was perfect. Server was very amicable and attentive without interrupting
Took a group of colleagues while on a business trip and everything was incredible. Unique, yet approachable dishes and there was something on the menu for everyone. Excellent wine and service as well. My colleagues are still talking about it days later.
Continues to be my favorite restaurant in Indy!! I have never tasted anything in the menu I haven’t loved.
Everything was wonderful
Wonderful as always! We have not been in a while, as we don't live as close now, but really enjoyed being back. Bartender-Carrie- was fantastic as were the drinks! Really enjoyed the lobster salad & duck.
Delicious is always on the menu! Solid wine list without the absorbent markup. Consistently an excellent experience.
This was our favorite restaurant for many years.
The food was very average to below average tasting, the portions were smaller and the prices went up.
There are so many new alternatives that are better tasting and a better value
This is by far our favorite restaurant. We have dined here for many years and have never been disappointed. The menu and wines change quite regularly but the quality doesn’t vary it is always excellent.
Made reservations same day
We’re seated at our favorite table overlooking the kitchen. It’s always great to see the chef and higg
Outstanding food and excellent service. Owner-Chef Steven Oakley's food is creatively prepared and the results are delicious.
As always, the food was creative and exciting. I had Stanley's Meatloaf and my wife the Duck Duck. We relish everything down to the last bit of sauce or piece of endive. This place never disappoints.
As always, great options, food, presentation, and service.
Food was wonderful as usUal!
Took a business colleague from out of town to dinner. Indianapolis has many upscale chain restaurants but not many chef owned restaurants that are high caliber. Oakleys is an exception. Food is always creative, service is good, specials are interesting. For an appetizer we tried the special that evening - sugared bacon covered in corn flakes. The presentation was interesting and the taste! Well, let me put it this way, there were three pieces and we quickly agreed after tasting the first bite that we would share the third piece. The only slightly negative item was that I was surprised at the portions. I had the short ribs and the portion was generous. My colleague had the salmon and we were both surprised the portion was not a little larger than it was. It wasn't tiny but was a little smaller than we expected. Overall, we were very happy with the meal. I would highly recommend this place, but I don't want it to get so popular I can't get in when I want to!
When we pulled up to its strop mall location we were Surprised at how nice it was inside. Food was good. We felt like it could have used a few more "normal" options on the menu. Overall an enjoyable evening but I think we expected more bold flavors from the descriptive menu items. For example, the beat bonby flay shrimp corndogs were very good, but as good as i expected. I would recommend to a friend, but not as good as i hoped
I am a repeat customer and love this restaurant. The food always taste great and looks like works of art. I recommend this restaurant highly.
Oakley’s is one of the best restaurants in Indy. The food and service are always excellent. No one in town does a better job with food presentation.
I think Oakley's has done the best they can with a strip mall facility but there isn't much privacy with the tables so close together. The appetizer and desert were fantastic. The entree's were just a four out of five.
This is one of ,if not the best restaurants in Indianapolis chef/owner Steve Oakley is a master in the kitchen
My meal was one of the best ever for me in Indiana. Been here >40 years.
We love this place! Great food and amazing service.
