I had a wonderful evening at Oak. I sat at the bar as I was dining alone and the bartender Cindy was amazing. Food was good and the atmosphere great. I definitely recommend this restaurant

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!

Dined at Oak on New Year's Eve. They had a fixed menu and ran out of one of the salads and one of the entrees. The portions were very small and took too long to arrive. I was still hungry after dinner.

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.

Oak is a very consistent restaurant in the 4-star category. there is a reason they have been around for a while. the four of us kept saying, "we should come back here more often!"

Not worth the money. Food was dry. Wine was overpriced. The place was nearly empty. Staff was friendly and helpful though. Would not recommend it. Have had much better meals in Dallas for far less money.

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.

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.
