Terrible. Steak cooked wrong twice. Server forgot coffee. He didn’t invest in our table whatsoever. When food came the boy goes ok what goes where as far as the steaks. And had it wrong. Terrible experience.

Best steakhouse in Charleston! We took our son for his 25th birthday! Great wine list! Our server offered great recommendation from the menu! Appetizers outstanding too! Wonderful table upstairs by the window!

Over crowded with Covid. Sat at table, got up and ordered at bar to go. Staff was not prepared for a to go order, poorly packaged, took about 6 minutes for staff to find plastic silverware.

Overall a great experience. I was a little cautious due to a small venue and remaining 6 feet apart. However, I still felt comfortable given the space. Food was delicious, and the portion sizes were comparable to similar fine dining establishments. Would recommend.

Old world steakhouse feel with a modern energetic vibe! All steaks are prime, grilled and well seasoned. Try the New York Strip with a side of steamed spinach and fried onion strings. Amazing!

Great dinner, good food. I’m not sure why they didn’t seat at the 2nd floor. In my opinion space everyone out versus in one or two rooms.

We absolutely love the steaks here, even more so than any other place downtown. This time we ended up being seated downstairs by the bar, and I will say, it was very loud and hard to have a good conversation. I should have asked for a seat in the mid level or upstairs. However, the food and service is the best! Highly recommend.

I was really excited to try Oak Steakhouse for the first time. Unforunately, there wasn't very much flavor in the steak or shrimp. It's fun to go to once, but I won't be striving to come back often.

We went during the low country restaurant week. On a Sunday. They had a great discount on bottles of wine. However there was a bit of a wait in between our courses.

I just want to start by saying the food was amazing - really top notch, everything tasted excellent, especially the Tartare. The hosts were also super friendly and we felt welcome on arrival. Ambiance 10/10. Unfortunately the service was not to the same caliber. It may have just been a bad night but our server was inattentive and made mistakes that I would not have expected at a restaurant like this.

My dining companion had an empty drink for 15 minutes, and when our server finally passed by and she tried to order her drink, he cut her off and said he had to pour wine for the larger table next to us - it came across incredibly rude and the entire night I just sensed that he didn't care much for us. I'm not sure if it was our age (we are in our 20s) or he was just having an off night but I don't feel like we were getting the same attention or treatment as other tables around us - larger parties or older diners who look like they have more $$$$ to shell out on a meal, but looks can be deceiving! Our dinner took 3 hours, but could have been shorter if we had been checked on at more regular intervals. There were times where we needed something but instead of checking on us, the staff was chitchatting in the corner.

To top things off our server came by and snagged our signed checks while we were finishing our last drinks. It wasn't like he was trying to get out of there because he still had multiple other tables. I found this incredibly rude and it put a bad taste in my mouth. I spent 6 years in food and bev and feel like I overtipped for this experience, but I would come back for the food.

I love Oak! We went for restaurant week. The food didn’t disappoint as usual. My only complaint was the truffle pasta, it was just ok. But, everything else was absolutely delicious!

Our dinner was outstanding as was the ambiance and service. It was very nice to have a delicious meal in a relaxed, quiet atmosphere. Ron, our server, was excellent with out being annoying. We had never been to Oak before and we tried it during Restaurant Week. We will definitely be going back again soon!

Great value for restaurant week -- items from their menu priced just over the entree cost. They didn't skimp or demure in recommending the value menu. The filet was large and done correctly. Service was attentive. Definitely a place to remember for our next visit to Charleston.

We came here on our anniversary trip four our special dinner of the week. The steakhouse called me around noon to confirm our reservation time and also to gain more information about my allergies so they can accommodate. I thought this was a wonderful act of customer service.
The building, set up, and staff were all extraordinary. I cannot say enough about this. The food was also excellent with one glaring exception. My husband and I both ordered the smaller filet in medium well. Same steak, same temp. When we received our food, his was much thicker and mine a thin strip. Mine was so well done the char on the outside was scraping the roof of my mouth. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. His steak was closer to a true medium well, even being slightly under. He graciously ended up switching with me so we could both eat our food.
For a steakhouse, and an upscale one at that, I felt I received a worse serving of steak than at my local $12 steakhouse at home.

Covid safety was lacking.

Bartender frequently had her mask down, GC had mask down in the kitchen area, and patrons were allowed to walk in and out (past tables) without masks on.

Food was great, but I wouldn't return until Covid were no longer a concern.
