From the valet parking, to the friendly bar, to the efficient and knowledgable service, to the high quality tasteful food....everything about this experience was perfect. Thank you Oak for making our “post Valentine” night very memorable.

Highly recommend this place. Bone in rib eye was simply top notch as were the appetizers and sides we ordered. Solid and friendly service. Best to book in advance.

We go to Oak almost every Valentine's Day and Restaurant Week. We had an 8:30pm reservation and were seated reasonably on time. Our server was prompt, friendly, and professional. The food is always high quality. We will be back again.

Our second visit was just as great as the first. The Mixed Grill was delicious from the first bite to the last and it was large enough to share. Service was excellent and we really enjoyed sitting in the front room on the 3rd level. You can experience three levels of dining and we prefer quite dining and conversation. I can't wait for our next visit.

We've eaten at Oak many times over the past few years and have never had a bad meal. Our waiter Sam and the others in the waitstaff were attentive, but not intrusive. The floor manager (?) Herman checked on us occasionally to ensure everything was acceptable.

The steaks were seasoned and cooked to perfection. The salads were fresh and tasty. The sides (whipped potatoes and roasted mushrooms couldn't have been better.

Oak is one of our favorite restaurants and I highly recommend it.

While my steak was cooked as ordered, my wife was overly done...looked like shoe leather.
Vegetables not very palatable, Broccolini way too tough. Desert while presented well, was only fair at best. cheesecake crust was too thick and hard.

We were a bit disappointed with the service. Definitely not somewhere we’d want to come visit again. If you’re idea of going to a nice steakhouse includes being catered to and feel special, you won’t find that here.

From out of town and here for anniversary weekend. Friends recommended Oak. Oh my! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend. Everything was wonderful. Best meal I’ve had in years - maybe ever. Truly an experience. Entire staff is on top of every detail - from host exchange up front to dessert at the end. Andrea, Asst GM, personally checked on us and made sure we were enjoying our special occasion. Could tell she’s a natural at her job. Can’t wait to come back to town and eat here again.

My husband thoroughly enjoyed our first visit here during Restaurant Week where we dined from the special prix fixe menu. I began the meal with the tomato basil soup, followed by the filet mignon and ended with the trio of sorbets. Each course was nicely presented and full of flavor. Service was spot on being appropriately attentive and friendly. We plan to return in the future.

Oak Steakhouse was great for the occasion and had a decent menu for Restaurant Week. We were celebrating us just getting married and decided to give Oak a try.. It was a nice ambiance and the filet was delicious. However it certainly isn't worth the money. If we would have not went during restaurant week it would have been at least 200$ for us both to eat. Granite, you are paying for the atmosphere and fancy food.. But the servings were small, over priced and the sirloin at Texas Roadhouse was better flavored and cooked. The only thing about our visit that I would suggest was the Samoa Cookie Pie. That was delicious! The service was okay; I think the server though because we were young he didn't need to pay us much attention.. which as a former server, everyone should be on the priority list!

Great for restaurant week, but certainly not comparable to Ruth's Chris or Halls Chophouse!
