    The service we had from Joe was top notch. He was able to recommend the perfect bottle of wine and was incredibly knowledgeable. It was my dad’s 82 birthday and they gave us the perfect table to see the sunset. Thank you!

    My husband and I had dinner at Angel Oak while staying at the Ritz for an anniversary weekend. It was an underwhelming experience overall. In particular, the service was not to the caliber that the restaurant portrays. Although the server was friendly, it was clear he was untrained in wine service and in fine dining service. Regarding the food, my husband ordered ribeye, which was excellent and flavorful. But, the other items ordered were nothing notable. In particular, the lobster coconut bisque was more a broth than a bisque. Sadly, it did not feel like a particularly celebratory evening. It is unlikely we would return to Angel Oak.

    Hi Service and ambiance first class. Do not order the pepper rubbed steak. It isn’t ready for prime time. So much pepper imbedded in meat even when we scrapped it off it still wasn’t edible. Drinks were fine, salad and sides good, just order the meat without pepper. From an experienced meat eater!

    The food and service were exceptional. We got the octopus to start, which was cooked to perfection. My husband got the scallops and I got the truffle tagliatelle with lobster as our main courses. They were exquisite!

    The view was amazing and the service was stellar. We sat outside and the ocean was spectacular. Very much appreciate the personal touches. Had a perfectly prepared steak and yummy oysters (though would have preferred west coast ones). Great wine selection including many local ones.
