Great food, however portions seem quite small. 3 scallops for the diver scallop meal really isn’t enough. Outstanding service though. Make sure to try the brussel sprouts.

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.

Enjoyed atmosphere very much. Three of us had dinner and was able to converse privately. Most restaurants place tables inches apart and blaring music. Oak places tables at respectful distances and music also at respectable volume. Stacy's recommendations greatly appreciated and service outstanding. Meal and dessert was outstanding. Management even checked on us and personally thanked us. Definitely will return!

We asked to be seated in the garden room as it was nice and quiet so we could have a conversation without a lot of noise. It was wonderful. The jidori chicken was fabulous and something i had never tried. I thought it might be like tandoori chicken, but in fact we googled it and found it to be a mixed breed free range grain fed chicken which originated in Los Angeles and has a fantastic flavor. Service was efficient but not hovering. Definitely one to go back to.

Walking into Oak, its Beautiful! Loved the decor and the service was outstanding. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and happy to help. The wine list was extensive but very overpriced in my opinion. While a realize there is a markup, double the price is a little crazy. I would have liked to see more medium price ranges available. The food was good and very creative, but not great, It was a little disappointing.

Was celebrating my mom's 85th birthday and they made her feel so special from the moment we walked in the door till desert. Food was outstanding as always and the service was perfect. Attentive but never too much or overbearing. Branzino is spectacular. This has been my 3rd or 4th time in several months. Love this place and can't thank them enough for making a special day even more memorable for my mom and family.

Food here was excellent. Their restaurant week menu featured a 4 course meal. Every course was great. The smoked vanilla ice cream with the brownie was a bit strange, but the red fish, pork, fried quail, and relleno were dynamite. The Hall cabernet was also great. Will definitely return.

We had not been here in a while and so glad we stopped back during Restaurant Week! They had a great menu posted online and we thoroughly enjoyed EVERYTHING, from the WAGYU beef creative panko crusted app to the d'auvergne cheese plate and brownie ice cream desserts! It was my husband's birthday and they surprised him with a beautiful envelope with a special handwritten note. Since we were 4 people, we were able to taste 4 of the 5 entree choices - blackened redfish, pork secreto, wagyu short ribs and the filet mignon. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The only negative was the loud music and screens, which I don't even know who was watching but they just did not fit into the "oaky" decor, with changing tree projections and unique light fixtures.

We came for a late lunch. I liked the trendy decor and quiet ambience. The service is excellent. Our server, Tyler, was super friendly and attentive. We would recommend the Oak Burger: juicy, flavorful, and topped with delicious Serrano peppers and grilled onions with a side of more grilled Serrano peppers and housemate chips. I would like to come back for dinner!

The food was as delicious as it was unique; however, the portions are incredibly small for the prices they're charging. The prices for plates are comparable to restaurants in NYC; wake up call!!! Dallas will never be like NYC!

Service was extremely slow in all aspects of dining -- ordering, delivery, refills.

The ambiance at Oak is spectacular! My coworkers and I went for lunch during restaurant week, hoping for a special menu or a selection different from their regular lunch menu, and were disappointed to find the restaurant week lunch only included something from their regular lunch menu and dessert. Overall, the service was great. The food was good, but nothing exceptional that would convince me to come back. I had the Cajun Redfish with sweet corn orzo, and felt the orzo could have used just a touch more acidity, though that is my preference. Another coworker had the shrimp poboy, which had a "vegetable side" of charred peppers that seemed better suited as a garnish than a complete side. We both had the chocolate brownie for dessert, which I loved because it was perfectly crispy like a corner piece with a soft inside. I was impressed by the food, but wish the restaurant week selection had been somewhat better for the lunch menu, where the selection was only salads or sandwiches, minus the one dish I ordered. Maybe one day I can convince myself it would be worth returning.

This was our first time at OAK since they hired the new chef. The food was absolutely amazing! It was a real foodie experience. While the previous food was good, this was seriously elevated cuisine. I had a grilled cheese with melon, crispy prosciutto and kale with a wonderful vinegar drizzle for my started. I had a wonderful redfish with a great blend of blackened seasonings that didn't take away from the great quality of the fish.

Our service was impeccable - great wine selectin too. If you've tried OAK in the past -- you must retry!!!
