Oak- Laguna Beach
The food was pretty nothing special at a beautiful restaurant. Perhaps it is better on a less busy day
Good food ,really cute setup if you reserve ahead of time for bdays as well ! Slightly pricey but Would go for any bday or special occasion :)
Always great food. Service was outstanding. Ambience great. We’re regulars
Everything was GREAT! The Charcuterie board & the Nice Melons cocktail were my faves! The live music & view was great, too!
Nice location with ocean view. Waitress was very attentive and helped with gluten free options. The ceviche was delicious! Only negative was road noise from Hwy 1. Would definitely go back again.
Just ok. Based on the name, I thought it was going to be more upscale. Instead it was basically just another sports bar or pickup bar kind of place (sports blaring on the TV's and pop music in the background, indifferent wait staff,...). Salad had great ingredients (blueberry, walnuts, pecans, but then they place it on a a dried out bed of kale). It seems like they have an identity crisis (can't decide if they want to be a nice upscale restaurant or a run-of-the-mill sports bar and the customer is left to try and figure it out which one they are). No thanks, you need to decide that, Oak. Would not return.
Great dinner in a beautiful restaurant! Love the food and cocktails. Nice wine selection. Fun vibe with an amazing staff. Will be back!
Food was ok but the prices were way out of line.
A very fun place for dinner, but you need to be able to deal with a lot of noise. Very lively atmosphere, but so much so, its a bit hard to hear others at your table. One other "complaint" is that I ordered an Old Fashioned for a cocktail and it cost $19. Just way over priced for this type of neighborhood restaurant/bar.
Our waitress, TESSA, was fantastic! All of the staff was very friendly and a great atmosphere. Will definitely go back!
K1st time there. Let’s bed it and new go to place. Drinks amazing as is happy hour pretty CEO’s and food great. Server was so welcoming and attentive. Tacos especially shrimp ones and ceviche-amazing. Loved. And patio/ocean view so lovely. Live music at night too
Great food, great ambience. The patio overlooking PCH is perfect for having a few cocktails and passing a couple of hours watching Laguna Beach go by.
Food is excellent.
Always great experience. Everyone orders something different so we enjoy a sampling of the menu. Love the seasonal cocktails. We never leave hungry or disappointed.
Loved sitting outside for early lunch. Seated right on time, which is different than dinner... always a wait even with reservations
Food great.. share the tacos and the meatballs
Pretty decent food but not worth the price. But GREAT drinks. Would be back for fun cocktails.
The food is always great , the service team all worked together to make sure we were taken care of . It was my girlfriends birthday and they made it very special for us with a little treat ;) the libations were a great pour and server / bar tender gave great recommendations as well as a sample of chowder which was outstanding !
We have been to Oak several times Sadly numerous reviews that complain about the extremely high noise level and inconsistent sevrvice is true. We really wanted to love Oak, and after several dinners ... we are done. Oak is all about the tourists , overpricing, and under staffing. And the noise level is out of bounds!!!!!
The best restaurant ever !!!
Rosemary .... Chris.. Tony are always phenomenal!!! Food and service is great!!
Went for Brunch - They had some special plates (and cocktails) on their Father's Day focused menu. Really cute. Service was great and food was very good. Portions were perfect. Will be back for sure.
This was my first time here and I have to say I was a little disappointed because I had heard about all the great reviews. First off I have to say that this place is really cute with a great view and good service. It was pretty loud too with people enjoying themselves. We started off with the calamari appetizer which was delicious, I did not enjoy my main dish which was the fried chicken, to me it had no flavor and I didn't like the buttermilk gravy either. My daughter got the shrimp tacos and she loved them. I would like to give this place another try because all the dishes I saw at other tables looked so good.
Great spot for good food and drinks with a nice outdoor patio
Wonderful, fresh and high quality food. Creative craft cocktails. Great views and we loved the live music!
Great service and location! I was seated outside so easily had a view of the water. They brought live music in and she was a fantastic acoustic guitar player.
I had the watermelon burrata to start and it was delicious. For my main course, I had the burger. It was very large, fries were tasty and crispy, and everything was cooked to my liking.
Had the kale and chicken salad. Absolutely no flavor, not sure if there was even dressing on the salad. The strawberries were fresh and the chicken was tender. I've had much better food else where especially for $26! I will not be returning
Laguna Beach has no problem with quality dining spots
And I have had the opportunity to dine in every one of them over the past number of years
I continually return to Oak however because they have an even deeper sense of fine dining
An excellent bar, excellent service, the folks at Oak have combined haute Cuisine and comfort food
I have never had a disappointing meal, and the efforts taken by the staff are constant
When in the HIP district, get yourselves over to Oak
You will be happy you did
Love this place. We always sit at the bar if we can and the team behind the bar are lovely. Plus they mix great cocktails
Best restaurant in Laguna! Great service and amazing food!
Food has been awesome both times we have eaten here. Fried chicken dinner was fantastic and my husband had the pork chops both times. Very thoughtful how the table was decorated for my birthday and loved the donuts for bday dessert.
Food was amazing !!! Chef chris is killing it at oak !!
Our 2nd time to eat at Oak and both were amazing experiences. Great service and awesome food and drinks!
A great lunch catching up with friends and the food was just a spectacular bonus. Yum.
We enjoyed the open air dining at Oak. When we arrived it was early and the traffic noise was pretty loud, but by the time we left the place had filled up and we didn't notice it at all. Our server was attentive and friendly, and the food was delicious. Each order of tacos comes with 3 - I had the pork belly tacos and they were really good. My husband had the fried chicken and it was amazing. The duck appetizer had a good flavored glaze, but the meat itself was a bit bland. With the appetizer, 2 entrees and 2 drinks each, we spent about $150. Overall, it was a nice evening and we would return when we we're in the mood for a more lively atmosphere.
Our meals were over cooked, watermelon arugula salad very salty, Halibut was extremely dry from over cooking, pineapple salsa extra garlicy.
Outstanding selection, food and service. I’ve already reserved a table for 6 next month to bring friends. Javier was an outstanding waiter.
Wine of our favorite haunts during the week or weekends, lively vibe, great people watching, cocktails and food never disappoint. The owners and staff are always welcoming
I’ve been there before for lunch and the food was good. Dinner was a disappointment. The food was really bad. Wouldn’t come back for dinner.
We were celebrating Mother’s Day and it was perfect!
