Oak is by far the best place to get C.A.B. filet mignon in Charleston, period! The serve is top notch and they are always on point.

When we first arrived the hostess was on the phone for about five minutes before she was able to address us. We were seated on the second floor near the balcony. Our waiter was excellent at his job. He guided us in our dinner selections. Ice water and bread appeared immediately. I was disappointed in the bread because it was not very flavorful, a weird texture, and dry. The only time we eat bread and butter is when we go out, so I was let down in that category. We decided to share the dry rub ribeye that was priced at about $100. It was good, but not outstanding and had an aftertaste. We had a couple of oysters each for an appetizer. My Oysters Rockefeller were excellent,, but my husband’s raw oysters were a disappointment. Both of our sides were excellent- fries and bacon mac and cheese. We enjoyed our dinners but Oak will not be on our top ten list.

Took two hours to get our food. NBD if delays are communicated, but our server didn't do that. They did eventually help make the issue right by giving the table free dessert, but still not enjoyable. Once we did get our food though, it was incredible.

We celebrated a friends birthday that doesn't dine out much. The setting and the ambience were beautiful. I brought her to Oak purposely, because she's an incredibly picky eater, but loves a good steak, and I know the steaks are always top notch. We weren't really in the mood for wine, but our server kept trying to push wine on us. We ordered cocktails instead. We had mentioned maybe a glass of wine with our meals depending on what we ordered, and again, he kept trying to upsell us a bottle of wine. It got quite annoying. He tried to upsell everything, but in a pushy way, not a suggestive way. Even my oysters rockefeller. I ordered 2, he brought and charged me for 3. When he tried to again sell us wine, I finally just said ok to a half bottle. When he left the table my girlfriend said she really just wanted to drink bourbon, so I called him over to cancel that order almost immediately. I said we changed our mind on the half bottle, and his reply was a very sarcastic..."I figured you would". I decided on a burger, because I personally think Oak has the best burger in town, my girlfriend said that sounded really good to her too, so she copied my order. That didn't seem to set well with our server either. Once we ordered burgers, his attitude changed even more and we barely saw him after that. I guess we weren't a high dollar enough table for him to worry about, even though our bill was still $200. The rest of the staff seemed wonderful and filled our waters, cleared plates and were very friendly and fun. The food was outstanding, (still best burger in Charleston), and the oysters can't be touched (THE BEST).

First the good… food was excellent.
However, and maybe we don’t go downtown Charleston as often as we used to but for people who used to frequent Oak pre children it is awfully hard to justify a $71 a la carte filet mignon. Add to that we had a 5:45pm reservation because we had 7:30pm theatre tickets and the food took so long we had to wolf it down to make our show.

It was not amazing.
First, they tried to sit us at the bar for my birthday dinner.
I asked to be moved, and they moved us to the third floor next to a wall next to the doorway. Wasn’t amazing but that was okay.
The Oysters Rockefeller were not flavorful.
The Cowboy prime rib was so chewy I couldn’t actually swallow most of the meat, it also lacked flavor.
Our server Andrew was very pleasant, but had a bigger party so we had him and then another server who helped out.
We did tell Andrew that we were not happy with the steak, and they did end up taking it off our bill, as well as giving us a couple desserts but no manager came over to talk to us, nothing.
We usually go to Halls where they treat you like royalty, and we just had higher hopes for Oaks.

Anniversary. Too noisy. Last time for our anniversary it was wonderful, they seated us on the third floor, very quiet, so nice. This time was so noisy on the 2nd floor, we couldn’t hear each other talk. No linens on the table-not worth the money. Besides that the food was excellent.
