Oak - Dallas Ratings and Reviews
We went to Oak for a belated Valentines’s dinner. The lighting over the tables is dim - would not be a problem except the menu type was printed in a light gray font making it almost impossible to read. We used our phones to provide extra lighting.
We started our dinner by sharing the Honeygem salad;
Neither of us liked the flavor of the dressing and we did not finish it.
I wanted to order the Tagliatelle but was informed they were out of the pasta dish. It was only 8:15 on a Saturday evening and they were out of several appetizers and menu items. I ended up ordering the chicken breast. It came with an aji amarillo sauce which saved the dish. The sauce was excellent. The grilled romaine and four fingerling potatoes did not enhance the dish.
My husband ordered the prime ribeye cap. It was beautifully cooked but an extremely small portion for the $38 price tag.
We were very underwhelmed by our food and disappointed with the entire experience.
I went there with my girlfriend and our waitress was very rude and treated us as if we were uncoth and didnt belong. She was very disrepect when we just wanted to have a good night for Valentines day. She was very unhelpful and the waitstaff sat us in the corner in the back when there were plenty of great tables in front of us. I asked about one of the booths that I saw open and the hostess said it was for an earlier reservation. To my understanding if a reservation doesnt show up on time you do not make the people whi showed up on time to thier reservation wait. I was appalled by the staff and the way I was treated and wouldnt recommend anyone to visit hear.
This was our first time to visit Oak, and we happened to be celebrating the anniversary of our first date 9 years ago. Everyone at Oak made the evening very special, even giving us an anniversary card! The food was outstanding (risotto was out of this world) and the service was great. Very nice ambiance! We will be back!
Oak is one of my wife's and my favorite restaurants in Dallas. We have frequently taken friends and family there. The food is excellent. The service is good and the ambience is perfect. Their wait staff is friendly and efficient. They always cooperates in getting us out on time if we have tickets for the theater or symphony after dinner.
Oak was terrific! We had a great time celebrating our anniversary. I don’t think you can get better service anywhere else, our server (Bruce) was on top of it and always with a smile on his face. Our food came quickly and was prepared perfectly. I had the Wild Salmon, it was very good, with a combination of grapefruit, lentils and a beet leaf! It sounds like a strange mix, but all the ingredients made it work impeccably. Great experience, we’ll be back soon.
The best word to describe the experience is "incongruous." It's a beautiful space, but why is the music turned up loud and the lights up too bright? The tartare was good, but maybe the menu should have mentioned the beets they put in there that didn't quite work. I said out loud, "why does a place like this even have Louis XVIII on the menu?" Things just didn't match up. It's almost a great restaurant, but almost doesn't cut it when there are so many good options.
We had family in town and wanted to do something special.
Oak is one of the most attractive restaurants in Dallas. The wine list is exceptional and
waiter gave us good suggestions. The food was terrific. Really really good.
It is one of our best, "go to" places.
Had a great experience here. I'm always looking for new places to try when I visit Dallas. This was a gem. Great food, good cocktails (although they need to use Luxardo cherries in their Manhattans!) and a solid place for a nice dinner event for a team meeting. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will certainly be back. My branzino (sea bass) was excellent as were the Brussels sprouts and the lentil soup. Colleagues tried the pork chop and rib eye which also got solid reviews. Plenty of parking out back but valet was also available.
pretty setting but food was all over the board. quality in no way matched the prices. mushroom risotto was terrible and the anchovies on the caesar were fishy overkill. beef filet steak was smoky and seasoned well. snapper was good but dirty rice was not. carrot cake was ok. service was pretty good.
Excellent Meal and Service. We are always impressed by the variety of options on the menu, some with seasonings or preparations that we are not that familiar with, but that turn out to be amazing choices. Trust the server recommendations and go for something a little different, although the familiar options are good too. Very good wine list including many options by the glass. And love the choice of fresh fruit for the water!
Our reservation was at 9pm, we were seated at 9:40. Several booths were open, I asked for a booth they told me none were available. While waiting for a table we went to the bar to order a glass of wine. The bartenders ignored us (there were 6 people at the bar), finally we were able to grab their attention, we ordered and had to remind the bartender of our order 2-3 times. There only a few people at the bar. The food was great! But for the price and service it was not worth it.
Extensive and interesting wine list including many choices by the glass, and a nightly flight special. Food menu has options for meat lovers, seafood fans, and vegetarians. We had a range of salads, entrees and sides and everyone was pleased with their choices, so much that we plan to go back again to try additional items. Our server was friendly and professional, and knew about the food preparations and wine options.
Fabulous all around!! We had given up on this restaurant, but decided to give it another try after 2+ years...were we ever happy that we did! The food was creative and delicious . The atmosphere has always been elegant and comfortable. The service was superb! The staff was attentive and gracious. We can’t wait to come back!!
Regarding music, wrong choice for conversation and played over the top too loud.
Everyone said that's the way the owner likes it. We asked three times to lower the volume. Nothing happened. We asked for the manager and he finally fixed the problem.
The server was REALLY EXCELLENT. The food was excellent.
But the noise was inexcusable.
