    Open table book me reservations at this restaurant that has gone out of business. From the looks of things it has been out of business for quite some time.

    This restaurant is out of business and has been for a month. Your system took our reservation and sent us a confirmation and we arrived to find it shut down. You need to take this restaurant off your site

    We drove 45 minutes out during rush hour for a 4:30pm reservation at OAK on Camelback only to discover the place was permanently closed. Why did they allow me to make a reservation and why did they also send a confirmation email? And why are they now asking me to review it? Please let people know the status so the inconvenience doesn't happen to other good souls just wanting to have a nice dinner out.

    Open table allowed me to make a reservation, and still does, even though the restaurant is permanently closed. There is no sign on the door or any other form of information to let customers know this. There is some comments online that the restaurant is closed for renovations, yet there is absolutely no evidence of any construction work started or even planed so I am pretty sure this restaurant is permanently closed. RIP Oak.

    We made the reservation a week in advance and then drove all the way from the west valley only to find out that the restaurant was closed for remodeling. We met other patrons who also made reservations and were upset that the restaurant didn’t tell us they were closed. We ended up at the Yard on 7th street and had a great brunch. It will be some time before we try the Oak again after the way we were treated. It’s a shame because we loved the oak before and have filled them since they were the St Francis.

    We made a reservation for brunch on 9/10/23 to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We were so disappointed to arrive on time and see a note on the door that said they were closed for remodeling.  Why wouldn’t the owner or manager look to see ahead of time if there were reservations made for the weekend and alert us?  It’s not easy to find a reservation on a Sunday/weekend for brunch for a large party. There were many other patrons standing in the parking lot with the same issue when we arrived. We had to scramble to find another restaurant! This was a huge hassle and disappointment. I did not find this professional or courteous.

    After making reservations we arrived to find a torn hand-written note saying they were closed “for renovations “ and I should follow them on Social Media. If they can’t be bothered to stop taking reservations and ruining evening plans, I won’t bother going back. Ever.

    The reason I sent this poor review is because we arrived on time for our reservation and the restaurant was closed, there was a sign on the door that said closed for remodeling. We made the reservation the prior day and drove cross town in rush hour. Was not pleased that we were able to make the reservation on OpenTable within 24 hours and information was not current.

    Here’s an idea, maybe let’s put a pause on reservations to your restaurant when it’s not even open. Perhaps then you won’t have people confused when they show up and everything is closed down. Just a thought

    OpenTable set up the reservation but when I showed up at Oak, it was closed. There was a handwritten sign that they had a maintanance problem. Why didn’t they cancel all pending reservations? Maintaining customers informed is not a priority for Oak.

    The food l ate was really good. Had a burger & fries. However the service was very poor. Waited almost 25 minutes for my meal. I never heard a place where they ran out of ketchup ??! The place has a nice vibe but maybe more customer friendly training with waiters sorry to say. Food should be out a lot quicker.

    Several brunch menu items were not available and we went early, including the ones we were considering. Staff was not friendly. The place is amazing outside but looked cheap and worn inside. Prices were high, which is fine... if the ambience, service and menu match. We ended up leaving without ordering. This was the second time I tried this restaurant; second bad experience. The first time in April 2023 we showed up right when they opened on a Sunday and were told we could not be seated and needed a reservation. The place was empty. Literally empty. I was there with my parents. We would have been in and out, not hanging for hours. Again, it was totally empty. Go elsewhere.

    We had a great dining experience and this was the first time visiting OAK. We tried a couple of the custom cocktails (Lost in the Woods) which were excellent. We had an old fashioned later I the evening and upgraded to Angels Envy which they charged an additional $10 for each drink! $23 old fashioned? I mean, it was tasty, but that’s exorbitant. Food was very good. We shared meatballs as an appetizer and it was delicious. For dinner we shared a Thai salad with salmon and the dip sandwich. Both were very good. The sandwich could have used a little more sauce. Dessert - we shared the bread pudding which was enjoyed by a party of 4. Service was very good - could have been a little faster but not too bad for a Saturday night. Would definitely go back!!

    This was one of our favorite places but this last visit was very disappointing. The service was poor. We ordered all our normal favorites, goat cheese, meatballs, scallops and a hamburger. The quality went down on all of them. It’s too bad because this was a great restaurant.

    We went there to celebrate my daughter’s birthday, and waited 90 minutes for food! 90 minutes! It wasn’t even that busy! After an hour, the server came by and told us it would still be awhile as the kitchen was backed up. The server didn’t really give us much attention. The food was amazing, but not amazing enough to wait 90 minutes. Won’t go back.

    We had reservations for brunch for 2 people. There was about eight tables (17 people) seated when we got there. When ordering the waitress let us know if would be 30 - 60 minutes for the food to come out since they were short staffed. We decided that we would still eat their since driving elsewhere and waiting for a seat would be about the same if not longer. 45 minutes in they brought out complimentary fingerling potatoes. 90 minutes in our food arrived. We were now one of three tables (6 people) in the restaurant. Food was good, not great like normal. Might give it another try in the future due to being so good in the past.

    It took us over an hour to get our food and my eggs were ice cold. Our reservations were for opening time. They were out of English muffins for the eggs Benedict. They were out of breakfast potatoes. We were served fries with our breakfast. One of our plates didn’t have potatoes/fries at all. The sausage was horrible. Nothing was credited for our meal. It was $84 for four people and for horrible food. 3 tables walked out while we were there. We should have left. I’m sure they will be closing this restaurant soon.

    We arrived on time for reservation - waited 20 minutes to be seated and not because of a crowd. Several empty tables, few dirty tables. We sat for another 10 minutes before anyone came to take order. Food was okay- several dishes arrived cold.

    We've been to Oak many times. Here's what I will say. Come for the food, not for the service. The food is always amazing, no matter if it's brunch, lunch or dinner. The Spicy Thai salad and the pork ribs are always our go to, but we've had almost everything on the menu at one point or another, and it has all been excellent. What I find lacking is the service. We were there on Father's Day (early no less, 10:15am with not another table of people in sight). We sat down at 10:06 and didn't get drinks ordered until 10:21. The ticket times for the kitchen were easily approaching 40 minutes, but the restaurant, while not excessively busy (although more and more big tables kept arriving), seemed extraordinarily understaffed. My recommendation is to sit at the bar and order food; we always get great service at the bar, and we always have mediocre service when seated in the dining room and/or patio. Ultimately, because of the food, this is a high recommend for me.

    I can’t remember is name but the bartender / amazing server / host was absolutely amazing ! I wanted a chocolate martini , and while they didn’t have the stuff to make it. He created this amazing chocolate whiskey drink that was amazing. .. so amazing that i sent my mule back and has him make 2 for us. The curry. Was a little spicy for my taste but delicious nonetheless. My friend ordered the chicken and BABY!!! amazing the maple sauce poured over it was heaven!!! The sauce under the broccolini was a little spicy, but I just worked around it. Definitely had to come back again. Please make sure he has our new amazing chocolate whiskey drink on hand :-)

    It was our first time and the food was phenomenal, even though two items I really wanted to try were unavailable (Shorty Dip and the Honey Habanero sauce for the wings), we still enjoyed everything we ordered. The food was a bit slow to get out, but in fairness to the spot, we got there at an odd 'in-between' hour on staffing (4:20 😉), but our server made up for it with her excellent service. We would definitely go back. (I would call ahead to make sure they have what you are craving that day)

    i have been to Saint Francis a couple times and enjoyed it. But Oak was a big disappointment. server was busy busing tables and not paying attention to us at all. our meal was ordered and people that sat down after we ordered where served before us. waiter kept saying our meal was on the way and we didn’t even ask him but he new it was taking long. My wife and daughters food came out then mine about 8 minutes later. My wife scrambled eggs where hard with a shell on them from sitting on the heater and my daughters egg Benedict bread was not even toasted. Now my chicken an waffles where good and the lox pizza tasted good but the dough was not cooked through. we did get new eggs that came out as an omelette for some reason and those where edible. Sorry but this place used to be better.

    Food was sub par had fried chicken that was like way dry and tried to compensate with seasoning. The black grain it was served with was nasty please re think that pairing. The chili was good and the meatballs were to over seasoned. It’s like the chef was trying to be to fancy and really stunned his toe. The service was great

    I used to love it here, but this time was disappointing...food was just ok (French fries were mostly limp and soggy, but some were completely raw! And practically no pork in the signature Chile Verde dish) and even though there was hardly anyone there when we arrived, the service was very slow and inattentive; we waited 20 minutes to place a drink order: we could see our server just hanging out at the bar and when she finally came to the table, she said "thank you for your patience"???

    Under new ownership per the server. Menu changed and my favorites gone. Long wait then told my husband’s food was over cooked and had to redo (forbidden chicken), hence my patty melt was warm, bread over toasted and hard, fries not hot. Bread pudding, a favorite, lived up to expectations, delicious. Last time there our guests lived this place. Will not bring folks here again. It was great when it was the St. Frances and when it first became the Oaks on Camelback. We always brought guest here. Sadly, not what it used to be.

    I was recommended this restaurant by two colleagues. It was one of the worst dining experiences I've had in a long time. The patio was dirty, topped off with aluminum used to smoke fentanyl. They were out of all white wine and only had two red options - one of which was bottle only. At no point did they try to accommodate me as paying customer. The final straw came after ordering a caesar salad only to be told ten minutes later they were out of romaine. The bill for 4 people was $200 and teh food itself was fine - nothing special. I won't return.

    The place was just okay for me. We tried the fried chicken curry dish, which sounds great on paper. The chick was over cooked, and the curry although not super spicy, over powered the syrup on the chicken. It was an ambitious paring, but I just don't personally think it works. Didn't hate it, didn't love it.
