My wife and I really like and appreciate this restaurant and the service we have there. Our waiter was one of the best we have had in Indy, and the food is always excellent.
dinner as always was excellent. Service was just ok. most shocked that our waiter cleaned the table next to us brushing all the leftovers onto the floor. Caused me to look down and was kind grossed out by all the food on the floor. A shame as this has been our go to place!
Awesome food! Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. The featured wines were good and not too pricey. The only negative was we had to wait 20 minutes for a table after our reservation time and we waited a bit for our server to show up after we were seated. There was a large party that we think got things a bit backed up. But once started, service was fine and we had a lovely, relaxing meal. Definitely going back!
A great meal, fresh, seasonal ingredients, masterfully done. Good wine list. Excellent service.
One of my favorite restaurants!!
Nice to have interesting and delicious food options! And the music at a level where you could have a conversation.
Great place for lunch. Delicious food, excellent service, as Oakley’s provides at dinner.
This is by far our favourite restaurant in town. Everything is consistently good - quality of food, service and ambiance. The menu changes with the seasons and quite often there are special dishes too. We never tire of eating here.
Great food and service. Excellent t recommendations from wait staff. Will be back soon!
Always great food and service.
Service is always excellent, selection and flavors outstanding. Best soups ... heck, best meal in Indianapolis.
The food was amazing!! The plates were small, but given the fact we were there for lunch, it was very acceptable. Cannot wait to try dinner there.
Great food, great waiter. Haven't been to Oakley's in many years and now I'm wondering why I haven't? Really fab
Great attention to detail high-quality ingredients results in great tasting meals
Excellent as always! Such creative and complex dishes. We will be back!
Lived in Carmel for 30 years... How have I not eaten here?!?! Wonderful meal! Felt like I was a Judge on Food Network ... This Chef is so good that he did "Beat Bobby Flay"
Food presentation was incredible. Just like you see on Food Network... so many unique ingredients but not crazy or weird. Had their salmon dish & it was amazing! A little pricey but
great dining experience.
Greta food and great service
This was our first time to Oakleys Bistro and I wish I knew why it took us so long to check it out! Everything was delicious! From the Shrimp Corn Dogs to the Fish specials... amazing! Our server, Jack, had many great recommendations and he put up with our corny senses of humor like a champ! He made our evening perfect beginning to end! Can't wait to go back again!
Food was fantastic. First time I have been there and cannot wait to go back. It is my new favorite restaurant in Indy. Loved it.
We visit Oakley's for special occasion dinners as was this one. We made reservations via OT about 5 days in advance for a Friday evening. We were seated in the back (fine with us) except our 2-top was rather squeezed in between two other 2-tops. Conversations between tables remained mostly private, but we do not particularly like this seating arrangement that is now popular in many restaurants. I've been to group dinners with six people where I was farther away from a friend than I was to the strangers at Oakley's. This will not serve as an obstacle for future special occasion dinners, but it will be taken in to account as we contemplate our options. Food is creatively different and delicious, a compelling reason to return.
We dine here often and are never disappointed. The food, service and ambiance are always excellent.
We can count on Oakley’s for delicious and creative food, wonderful service, a relaxing evening, and a unique meal.
The food was simply amazing. We went for lunch and it was a great value. Would be an excellent place for an anniversary dinner. We will definitely be back even though we were from out of town.
Whenever anyone asks what is my favorite restaurant in town, I always say "Oakley's". I've never been disappointed.
Excellent food and service, you can't do much better than Oakley's
Fabulous food. Everything is wonderfully prepared and presented.
We had the sole special, and it was amazing! I couldn't make that even if I had all day! It is amazing that Steve Oakley is right on site and preparing these gourmet meals. He is truly an artist. This is our favorite restaurant in Indianapolis.
the food at Oakleys is good and maybe overly "creative". i wish they had some beef on the menu aside from short-ribs. i had meatloaf, an old standby item and others had fish. We all enjoyed our meals. AS is usual the service is no that great. The waiter planted himself at one end of the table and reached across all four of us to serve and clear. A small bit of movement and he could have avoided that . It has been that way at Oakleys as long as i can remember so i don't expect any changes. They were out of two wines that we wanted, I never understand that in a restaurant. The waiter had an alternate suggestion, which my companion liked but i did not.
Generally a good experience. Still hoping for more.
Service was exceptional and the Dinner was outstanding. Wonderful melding of tastes.
Try the duck!!
Always outstanding! A trip is not complete without the shrimp corn dogs but they had some great specials as well!
Oakley's is one of my personal favorites for quality time with friends I don't see often. If I lived closer, I would be there weekly! Great service, creative menu... no downside to this place. Just the best of the best! If you haven't done it... DO!
Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to OAKLEYS bistro. Exciting menu with great flavors in every bite.
A new favorite!
We went for our Anniversary. The menu was fabulous. The service was good and our server helped with choices well. The dessert was amazing and really unique.
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!
