Great night - was a pleasure & enjoyed everything
Very pleasant... great atmosphere and service, great food. I’ll come back!
Great place for Lunch.
Quiet, excellent food, interesting choices
This was our first visit and we will definitely be back. I had the vegetarian pasta dish and it was delicious. The guys had steak & both were done perfectly. The side items were all very tasty (Mac & cheese, Brussels, and the fresh bread). Service was friendly & attentive. We had a 6:30 Saturday RSVP & it was quiet when we arrived but almost full by the time we left, so go early, or make a reservation.
Great place to meet when you want a peaceful place to talk and interact and enjoy delicious food!
We had the pleasure of dining at the Oak table when we visited. This was my second visit to Oak and they food was better this time. I had salmon with the perfect sear and the RW menu was yummy. Previously, the bread was not flavorful and the sides were bland- not this time. Maybe that’s the benefit of coming on A weekend and not a weeknight. Service was attentive and delightful both times. The only negative is that although we expected to be charged an automatic gratuity due to our large party, we did not expect to be taxed on it. I later called the restaurant and was told that it was commonplace for automatic gratuities (or service fee in Oak’s case) to be taxes due to some federal rule and said that all restaurants should be doing that. Yes, server’s income is taxed but in general, fees for services are not, so IDK what to think about that other than to suggest not going with a larger party.
Great food and service was spot-on. Highly recommended
Great service and beautiful presentations. Everything had great flavor. The pasta dish my friend had was delicious but a little on the small side. My salmon was perfection, but didn't care for the olives it was served with. My husband liked his steak very much. Super waiters and staff
Took advantage of Restaurant Week to try an unfamiliar place. Glad we did— we’ll be back
Great knowledgeable service from server Canere and food mgr Kevin. Would give both the top rating for employees of this restaurant. We got lot's of good attention from both of them. Had the restaurant week steak which was $15 more, but well worth the extra price. I could have just eaten the steak and had a good red wine and the rolls they served and been very happy. Do not often spend the $$ price but ok to splurge now and then and be spoiled with the service, atmosphere and decor of a high end restaurant in the Design District.
Family was in town for the night!
I have enjoyed this restaurant over the years I have been going to Dallas but this time stood out. Not only for the food presentation and flavor but for the service. Oscar was fantastic, along with his entire team, was very attentive and professional. The food was excellent in every way. I had the halibut and it was not disappointing but perfectly cooked. The salad was delicious and the cocktail great too. I would highly recommend trying this one out for a new experience even if you have been there before...it exceeded my expectations.
Great experience with the restaurant. The staffs are super nice and professional. The managers checked on us multiple times throughout the time we were there.
We did a Dallas restaurant week menu. I was not a big fan of the chilled tomato soup. It was a little bit too garlicky to me. The tomato soup has small watermelon pieces in it and it was SOOO good.
The 60 day aged burger was delicious. There was so much food that I could not finish. The burger was surprisingly still good after being re-heated too.
A definite come back and my stamp of approval
Excelente food and service. the restaurant week menu was delicious. We are going back for sure.
Everything was fantastic at Oak for dinner. We started with cocktails at the bar and rolled into dinner right afterwards. Everything was expertly paced and the food and drink were fantastic. Can’t wait to go back!
Overpriced for quality of food. Ambiance was amazing and unique, but food lacked flavor and meat was overcooked. Servers were attentive though it took 10 minutes for a server to first arrive.
Service was top notch, which was mirrored by the amazing food that arrived at our table at impeccable speed.
I would travel to Dallas for this restaurant alone.
I have gone to a number of the "Five" Stars in Dallas over the years. The menu has a wonderful mix of options for everyone. The staff was very engaging but not over bearing. The ambiance was great. This is not a place to bring young kids though. It is an adult crowd with adult food. There were four at are table and it was the first time here. All four of us plan to come back soon.
Poor service for a high end restaurant. We had to ask for items multiple times. Ice tea, butter, drinks. It was a off night and the manager did compensate us with gift certificates for everyone at table. Nice touch. The food was nothing special for the price. Nothing really makes me say ooh let’s go back there it was so good.
We did the restaurant week menu and was not disappointed. Great flavor and unique items. Great drink menu.
Not all the food and ingredients will sound wonderful but if you're willing to venture outside of the box it's worth a visit. Our server although very quiet was one of the most knowledgable and polite people. Good experience not over the top out of this world but will certainly be back sometime.
The wait staff was excellent and attentive. The food was outstanding.
We went during restaurant week. Selections were good. Food was excellent. Server was knowledgeable and attentive. We will go back.
Fabulous meal on a quiet Monday night for Restaurant Week. We had crudo fish dish and short rib carpaccio for appetizers, beef tips and filet for mains, and shared warm brownie with smoked ice cream (seriously delicious) and peach concoction for dessert. All the dishes were wonderful and creative without being too far out, service and wine selections were terrific, beautiful restaurant and quiet...you can actually talk here. This restaurant deserves a following...we used to frequent but the chef turnover and inconsistent experience left us dismayed. They are back and deserve a night of dining pleasure. Highly recommended!
We had a pleasant evening at Oak on Saturday. We actually could have a conversation. The menu is varied with lots of good things from which to to choose. We both had the Halibut. The presentation was great. Disappointedly, the Halibut was overdone and dry...no juice.
I guess we could have sent it back...but just returning it changes the mood of the evening. I will give them another chance.
I recommend the Oak. You may not be a fussy as I about how to cook Halibut.
This visit was for drinks and appetizers. Our serve was great. He knew the menu and was able to make recommendations. He was friendly and attentive checking on us throughout our stay. We were going to have dinner but decided to try several appetizers instead. We had the charcuterie plate and the artichoke dip. The charcuterie plate had a nice variety of meats and cheeses. The standouts were the chorizo and the house made ricotta. It also came with almonds, olives and some delicious pickle slices. It was big enough to share and could substitute for a main course. The artichoke dip was tasty and not at all what I expected. It had grilled artichokes with house made rocotta and was very light and refreshing. Perfect for a hot summer day. Our cocktails were delicious and expertly crafted. We enjoy our evening and will be back to try some main courses.
We went here to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The service and food was impeccable. Oak made our celebration very special! Thank you 😊
All in all a very favorable experience. Ate at the bar, hardly any tables occupied on Monday night. Only concern was a long wait from time order placed to food delivered even though restaurant more or less empty.
We all had the filet. Well worth it. Tender, juicy, cooked to perfection. I don't recommend the steak sauce (almost an Asian flare to it with citrus and ginger?), but you do you. Brussel sprouts were delicious, and the corn dish was a really fun take on street corn.
Great place.. food was amazing. Wine guys know their stuff!!
Food was okay. A little disappointing. Service was better
Menu selection was limited. Food pricey for small portions. Wines overpriced.
Great service. Nice ambience.
The restaurant is beautiful, service outstanding and my entree was wonderful. However, everyone in my party felt the portion sizes were more comparable to small plates. That would have been fine if it weren’t for the price. If no t for that we would visit again.
Great experience, the food was amazing and the service was very good. The sommelier was very knowledge and suggested a white that paired very well with the pork brisket. Also, the filet was fantastic! One of the best steaks I’ve had in DFW. Cocktails were well balanced and delicious. For a side we ordered the asparagus (which was ok). The toffee pudding was tasty too. We had a great time and will definitely return!
What a very strange evening at Oak! We were there for a special occasion -- our anniversary. We arrived around 7:30 and there were people at the bar but no one else in the restaurant. And we left at around 9:00, and the entire evening we were the only people eating dinner. On a Friday night.
Maybe we had the wrong attitude, and maybe this was a missed opportunity. The drinks were good, and the appetizers very good. But when it became clear there was going to be no one else in the restaurant, we bailed out, ordering a cheap wine and two of the lesser entrees. Both entrees were also quite good. And our server, Oscar, was better than quite good. He was excellent.
We didn't want a noisy and crowded restaurant, where we were seated right on top of others and where we couldn't hear each other over the din. But this experience was too quiet. Alone in the restaurant, it became awkward. Staff were gradually let go for the evening, and it was as if we were on display or were making a social faux pas. Even if what you want is a quieter venue, you still want just a little electricity. Unfortunately, however good the food and however fine the waiter, this evening was special in a wrong and almost sad or tragic way.
The food was great and I liked the server but there were only 4-5 tables in the entire place and it took 2 plus hours to get our meal. I eat out 5 nights a week and this is not normal.
Oscar was outstanding!!! The food was amazing and the drinks were soooooo delish!!! Highly HIGHLY recommend!!!
Service at the bar was great really nice people. Once we moved to our table that experience changed. Service was slow, haphazard, different servers filling up water glasses with the wrong type, long wait for drinks. When we got our food both of our meals were lukewarm while the brussels sprouts were too hot to eat. It wasn’t super busy so I don’t understand the problem behind the service and cold food. Didn’t say anything since it was a special occasion and didn’t want to ruin the night but for the price I expected a far better experience. I eat out a lot at restaurants of this caliber and overall I was very disappointed with Oak. I get better service at snuffers.
A very pleasant dining experience, but a little pricey for what it is.
