My husband's steak was very good as were the Brussels sprouts. The steak tartare was unusual. It was good but I wouldn't order it again. The tartare was heavily mixed with aioli so it became a mayo tartare. I thought the aioli was on the side. As with all good steak houses these days, everything was very expensive.

My husband and I had wonderful evening for my Husband's birthday dinner. The restaurant was very elegant and romantic. Our Server was very informative on the menu. Food portions were outstanding. We shared a meal and it was the best steak I ever enjoyed in my life. We will be going back for another special occasion. Thank you Oaks for a wonderful experience and evening.

Reservations at 815pm, arrived at 8pm, told "running on time." At 830 queried and told my table was "finishing up, just a few minutes." At 840 queried and told my table "ordered dessert" so 10-15 more minutes wait. At 850 told table was ready, taken to a table on the "second level" a balcony area next to the bathroom, to a table that was open on our arrival at 8pm...directly above the bar and kitchen with the noise level so loud, casual conversation was not possible. The restaurant design has bar on 1st floor, and open second floor balcony that has maybe 6 tables, but is loud and warm from the bar and kitchen. The 3rd floor was a quiet dining are enclosed and well adorned, good air conditioning. The bottom line problem with this restaurant was a failure to "state acceptance of responsibility for a failed dining experience." Everyone apologized for the wait, while being seated, the hostess even suggested the restaurant shouldn't "offer dessert, because it delayed our seating." No one said, "we screwed up and you fell through the cracks." It was not the other guests fault, it was the fault of management to manage reservations. Shortly after being seated, oysters Rockefeller and shrimp cocktail arrived not ordered by our dining party, in an effort to begin to make up for the error but without explanation. The assistant manager was called, and after two additional requests, she arrived at the table after we'd made the decision to depart. She offered to comp the meal, move us upstairs, anything we wanted, but at that point our dining experience was unrecoverable and we departed. We were offered an opportunity to return and give Oak Restaurant a chance to "make it right." We are still considering.

Best cut of meat in Charleston. It beat Halls hands down. I have eaten at all the steakhouses for business in Charleston and this was the best experience by far. Great steaks, low mark up on great wine, and great staff.
I highly recommend Oak the next time you are thinking about brining business clients, or a date, out for top quality food.

This place has not ever disappointed. This time I sat by the bar so it was a bit noisier than I had been used to. However, it was rivalry week in collage football. So this can be expected. Our waiter was top notch. One advantage to sitting in this area is the food comes straight from the prep area to you. My date and I split our meal and they brought it to us on separate plates prepared as if it was supposed to be separate.

Very enjoyable Thanksgiving dinner. Squash bisque was excellent and traditional plated turkey meal was reasonably priced and very tasty. House-made cranberry sauce was quite flavorful, and Oliver and Chef honored preference for white meat. A painted dessert plate was requested and provided for the birthday celebrant, and uneaten portion was offered to be boxed. Server was very good and lots of assistant servers to aid in providing excellent service. Quiet, non-hurried pace with an abundance of knowledgeable service staff. Wished the prix fixe menu would have been available online in advance.

Wonderful dining experience. Professional service throughout. We were promptly seated in prime location _ top-floor dining room with window views _ for our 7 pm Saturday reservation. Our party of 2 had an appetizer of Oysters Rockefeller. Oysters were big and delicious. For entrees, we had sliced steak and salad, and the fresh catch of the day: barrellfish. The steak on the salad was cooked perfectly (medium) and had great flavor. First time having barrellfish. Excellent. It's a local fish caught in deep water of the Atlantic. Flavor is comparable to Chilean Sea Bass and texture is comparable to swordfish. Perfectly prepared. Upon leaving, we were given a package of two apple biscuits as a thank-you. What a nice touch! The biscuits were good, too. 5-star experience.

Oak Steakhouse is cut from the same cloth as some of the premium steakhouses you will find in Chicago, New York, or Boston. Perfect for a special occasion or to impress a client. My wife and I went for her birthday and enjoyed the filets with crab on top, with a tremendous lobster mac and cheese side. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding, with the price tag to match.

We enjoyed our dinner. With the background music, it was somewhat difficult to hear. However, that did not take away from the overall experience. My dinner date has a preference for rib-eye steaks; the one he had did not disappoint.

Thank you for your kind and attentive staff; that was very impressive and pleasant!
