Oak- Laguna Beach
We were celebrating Mother’s Day and it was perfect!
Great service decent good, great for two or a large group. Crafty cocktails.
Good restaurant but they had a party booked during business hours. They were very loud and made it hard to have a conversation. We should have been informed of a large party during our booking. We would have chosen another time. The party blocked the view too. The experience was ruined.
Great place! Went there with some friends to catch up, and the food and drinks did not disappoint. We shared the charcuterie platter, ceviche, clam chowder, and Brussels sprouts and it was all delicious. The drinks were fantastic as well! I will definitely be going back soon!
I took my wife and daughter out to Oak for Mother's day. We wanted a place we have never been before so I was a little nervous. But I did the research and read the reviews and when we got there, it exceeded our expectations! Great atmosphere. They seated us on the patio where we had a view of PCH and the ocean. Our food was amazing. We had Calamari for an appetizer and that was the best I ever had.
Amazing bloody marys! All the food was wonderful and the service was top notch.
We’ll definitely be back.
We had the best Mother's Day brunch ever! The food and service were excellent - shout out to our waitress Kerry! I have already recommended the restaurant to friends. Thank you again.
We went to Oak for Mother’s Day Brunch and my food was served ice cold and my daughters omelette was missing the avocado. The service was mediocre. I would not recommend and have no intention of returning.
The food was so good! My hubby was stoked on his bday dinner
Oak has never disappointed; it’s always top-notch. Out waitress Kerry was friendly yet professional, and her recommendations for cocktails and dinners were spot on. Highly recommend.
It was a good experience to eat at Oak, but the food left me thinking of other places to eat. I wanted to think about returning to Oak to try something else, but I just didn’t. Great location, good food.
We had the most amazing lunch today! Although it was cloudy we know how great the view normally is. Here’s a few pics of our drinks and meal bc they were so good!
The food was outstanding. We had reservations and got seated outside in the cold. Then they tell us if we wanted to wait another 45 minutes we would be able to be seated inside. Wow! What’s the point of reservations. It wasn’t a busy night at all maybe one or two people waiting. We been following Chef Chris for a long time that’s the only reason why we decided to go. Other than that it was good.
Fantastic meal and loved the cocktails. Great staff and service was excellent!
Vacation dinner wonderful
They had party hats and banners out on our table when we arrived! How thoughtful!
Amazing dinner! Food is delicious. Great service and awesome vibe!
Host and servers very friendly and accommodating. Atmosphere upbeat. Nice view to street and ocean. 3 of us ordered crab omelettes which were bland and dry. Another got the spinach Benedict.
5th person got the sausage omelette. Both were delicious. Food & drink prices were over priced.
The service was amazing. I was a little cold on the patio due to my Easter outfit. They gave me a blanket and put the outdoor heater next to our table. They had an Easter Bunny there for pictures and passed out homemade organic pastel colored soap. The food was fantastic! We had the crab omelette, spinach benedict, the bacon sausage omelette, a fresh fruit bowl, blood orange mimosa’s and the donut dessert! Outstanding!!!
Bday Doughnuts & complimentary blankets on the patio!
I wish wine and cocktails were not $14.00 a glass but food is actually priced well. You for sure pay for eating on the strip in Laguna Beach. Lots of birthday parties and anniversary's being celebrated there. Free dessert if you have one of those.
Missed Live music tonight :/ great service and food! Prices could be better
Great service and wonderful food! Would recommended and go back!
It was great, food was excellent, and the donuts and ice cream were superb! I can still taste them...
The place was hopping as we went for our anniversary. They greeted us kindly and we had a very nice table. Appetizers were fantastic and the service impeccable. Main courses, however, were dry and lacked the pizzazz that we experienced before. However the wait staff and hostess were very professional and made us feel very special.
Food was pretty good, front of the house and waiters were awesome. Couldn’t have asked for more. But the accoustics along with the two groups of super drunk “woo-girls” resulted in such a loud atmosphere for the first hour or so we were considering attempting to move seats or do something to get away from the cackling. Also of note, the live musician was really good and added a nice ambiance to the place and also helped drown out the cackling. I’m always down for a good time but those two parties there were going overboard. A cry for attention perhaps? Lol. Would go back again. But maybe would sit outside in the summer to escape the noise.
Again overall a good experience. Would revisit again. I recommend.
Food was excellent. We started with the Wedge salad, which was probably the best one I’ve had! My sister had Chef Z’s hot chicken sandwich (amazing!) and I had the pork belly tacos (also delicious!) . Cocktails are great and our server was friendly and attentive .
Love the brunch! have been twice and will most likely go back soon!
I should preface my review by saying that it seems OAK does breakfast as a side venture so somebody elses experience might be much different if they go for lunch or dinner. When we arrived at 10 am, we were literally the only customers in the place. We were seated promptly and greeted by our waiter quickly as well. After that, it seems we were always looking for him to show up again. I'm not sure how it could occur when we were the only people in the place at the time but all of our food came out "less than hot". Luckily is warm enough to still be enjoyable because I felt the food quality was very good.
Oak was truly such an incredible experience. They went ALL OUT to celebrate my birthday - we were greeted by fun hats, table decorations, and customized menu header! Thank you for the wonderful food and making the night so special
This is not the place to go if you are interested in a quiet evening with a date. The place is jumping and very very loud. Perfect for larger parties and groups of 4 or more who do not mind the noise. Service and food are excellent.
Went to Oak for the first time for my wife’s birthday. The food and service were excellent! Will definitely be back :)
Great service and delicious food! We had a great time.
One of my fav restaurants and it never disappoints. First time going to brunch and it was delish! I highly recommend the chilaquiles (sp?).
Nothing special food and service was good
The staff is alway so courteous! The food is impeccable . The drinks can be pricey but with the service food and vibes it’s worth it ! I have been for dinner and lunch . Get in soon and enjoy because he does fill up . Even when the tables are all sat the service does not stop . I would recommend this restaurant to friends !
Great experience as always. They Sunday bar crew always make us feel welcome. Layla, our host, told us she was pleasantly surprised that we came a second night in a row. Always a good time at Oak!!
One of the partners of the restaurant management team spent several minutes with us and her attention to detail was amazing! She decorated a table for a party that a birthday with little pieces of decor without them asking. Apparently, they have a closet full of goodies to help celebrate their guest's special occasions!
If you like so much noise that the waitress has to bend over and shout in your ear to announce the daily specials, then it's okay. Or, if you have to virtually shout at the person sitting across the table to have a dinner conversation, then this is the place. I feel the noise level is so intrusive, it ruins the dining experience. Liked the food and service but the incredible noise makes it a place that I will not go back to.
Good food, good service. A little noisy . Nothing really stands out but will definitely go back.
