    Great steaks, but my filet was not cooked to medium- slightly rare. My husband’s was supposed to be rare and it was medium. If cooked properly, it would have been 5 stars.

    We came for our 5th Anniversary, it was a first for both of us. Everything exceeded our expectations and then some, from the greetings upon walking in, to our requested seat (from prior reviews) to the server Alex, to the manager stopping in to check on us and wish us happy anniversary… the food was superb and that peanut butter pie, oh my!!! We will definitely be back! :))

    In our last few visits to Charleston my cousin and I have made this our go-to spot for the best steak anywhere we travel. In particular we like the filet mignon. You can cut it with a fork. The service of the staff from the hostess to the servers is always great. I would recommend that you make your reservation well in advance of your stay if you can. The restaurant is in a 3-story building and the main dining area is on the third floor which might be a problem for some diners, although there are tables to be had on the first floor with the bar. The first floor is somewhat more noisy however than the other dining area would be. Some additional items on the menu are just what you would expect as they are traditional steakhouse fare but they are all done exceptionally well. The signature cocktails are very good as well as their extensive wine list and traditional bar favorites. Do make Oak a MUST-stop on your trip to Charleston.

    Was our anniversary, they didn't really do much or say much for that. Thought we'd have a nice cozy dinner but we were seated right by bar. It was okay ambiance, sitting across from bar was noisy. The football game was on which was weird for a "nicer" restaurant to be playing tv during a $200 meal. Didn't think the steak was all that good compared to some other steakhouses

    My group was notably younger than the other guests surrounding, and our server made it very evident that we were not his priority. No bread service, and not that I care for it anyways but every other table surrounding us received it. We were pouring our own wine as one of my guests saw our server scrolling on TikTok in the back. Waited about 30 minutes for each course. Two of my guests had nut allergies that were expressed at the start of the meal, and were still brought out dessert containing nuts. After inquiring about another dessert the chef could not confirm or deny it containing nuts and it was taken away from him. And not removed from the bill. It was also a birthday, to which the table seating next to us was delighted with a celebratory candle and dessert. That never occurred for us. The back wait brought out dessert and our sever never returned after taking away the contaminated dessert. Incredibly disappointing experience compared to my past experiences here. Not worth the money or the time spent.

    First disappointing meal we’ve had here. My steak was undercooked, they’ve done away with several of the sauces, my husband’s ribeye was really fatty and had gristle all throughout and was served lukewarm at best (the truffle butter wouldn’t melt on top of the steak), and they no longer offer the Pittsburgh style preparation with the sugar glaze, which he loved. A bit disappointing as we’ve had stellar meals here previously. Our waiter mentioned there was a new chef, so I’m guessing that explains a lot of the changes. Will probably just go to Halls from now ion. On the upside, the service was great as usual.

    We went to Oak during Restaurant Week to take advantage of the excellent offer. We were very impressed with our dinner. The steaks are very comparable to the other high end steakhouses in town but this is by far the best atmosphere we’ve found at a steakhouse in Charleston. You don’t not feel so packed in, and you can actually hear what others are saying at the table. The service was great, too. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Oak!

    Oak Steakhouse remains one of our favorite fine-dining restaurants. We live within walking distance. The service and food are excellent and consistently so. Area Manager Michael Dunnavant and General Manager Eric Goebel recruit, train and supervise a capable staff to deliver an excellent dining experience.

    Start to finish impeccable service and mouth-watering meal! Hooray for restaurant week and adding a fabulous new place to my list! The staff truly pays attention to detail- even bringing over a "gift" of delicious scallops to start. Good knowledge of what they offer and staff suggestions for this guest which are always welcome. Not too loud, not too dimly lit. Perfect ambience for a very nice evening dining out in downtown Charleston!

    Great food but we had reservations at 9:45 and our waiter was trying to rush us out the door by 1030. I realize that the kitchen wanted to close but they should not make reservations this late if they are not willing to allow the diners to have a relaxing enjoyable experience for the price.

    My steak was outstanding. Although the sides, mashed potato and asparagus were wonderful I thought the portion size was way too small! There wasn’t three bites of mashed potatoes and two asparagus… At the cost of potatoes I would’ve liked to of had enough to eat with my entire steak. Service and atmosphere where incredible

    We went during restaurant week so the price was right to try. Our server wasn't friendly, acted annoyed with us for ordering the restaurant week menu and rushed us through our meal. Only checked on us once during our meal and never brought us bread plates so we had to keep our bread in our hand. For this level of establishment the service was very poor although we did enjoy our actual meal

    Not our first visit, certainly will not be our last! We were seated in the Bird Room and it was perfect. Vinny was our server, he was perfectly attentive and his timing impeccable. Burrata Salad was wonderful, the Sirloin medium rare, Burger well done, both cooked to perfection and melted in our mouths. Cocktails and wine equally delicious!

    We had dinner during restaurant week here in Charleston where we reside. Our server was very busy. Long wait between appetizer and main course. When my husbands steak arrived he said it was cold, it was also not a good quality. Server didn’t check back with us until we were 3/4 of the way through our entree. My husband told the server that his Rib Steak (up charge) had arrived properly cooked but cold. Server offered to reheat what remained of the steak which my husband declined. Very disappointed in whole experience. Next time we will go to Hall’s.
