Celebrated a 50th wedding anniversary with my wife’s sister and brother in law. We were treated very nicely .

We had early reservations and Oak was still very bust. Our server, Andrew, did a re remarkable job even though he was very busy.

Great job Oak !

Had anniversary reservations for over a week and they initially tried to seat us right beside the bar which was about 90 decibels. Complained enough until they moved us to a much better location, however, we seemed to have gotten lost in the shuffle. Service was quite slow with long periods between courses. Server eventually apologized for the delay in our main course, explaining the kitchen was backed up. Food was very good but timed very poorly. They did comp a dessert however. VERY expensive restaurant, even for Charleston, and we left with a poor impression of our overall dining experience. Will never go back!

as a long time must do/go-to recommendation, OAK fell woefully short this go round. yes, the current restaurant scene is experiencing some challenges and of course we all need to be gracious and understanding(these people are working, feeding, smiling, and serving you - be kind, tip generously!); however, there are some standards that should never be lowered. the hostesses were kind and welcoming as was seemingly everyone else there - but our server. from the beginning she couldn’t have seemed less interested in what she, herself, had to say, or us. we were there for an anniversary and birthday(our youngest’s). our girls were so put off by her they didn’t speak up about the medium rare burger(ordered well done) or the ravioli (it was very strong, un-eatable for a new palate only just open to eating different foods). she seemed genuinely annoyed the entire time and disappeared once the food showed up. even more annoyed at the end of the meal when she asked how everything was and my husband honestly answered the girls didn’t care for their food. the server pressed and not wanting to make a scene my husband discreetly said the burger was undercooked and the ravioli was very strong - she pushed back and said she didn’t understand, then admitted she hadn’t tried it yet but everyone else loved it and continued to push for more specifics. no one likes to complain and our daughters were already mortified by her aggressive questioning which thankfully ended when she abruptly left muttering we should have told her earlier. well, maybe we would have had she been around. we were fine not to make an issue of it - sometimes food doesn’t suit, no harm no foul, but to pursue the matter when we were not was unnecessary. the steaks were amazing, as were the mashed potatoes and salad, the bathrooms were inexcusably awful; honestly so so bad. a bit stung from the experience, we won’t be back for awhile(and won’t recommend), but hope our next trip is more in line with OAKs reputation.

It was so so, the best part of the meal was the friendly host seating us, service was slow, I get we are short staffed, but I don’t think I would go back.

Had dinner with a group of 4. Our server was awesome and made the meal fun and enjoyable in everyday. The food was superb. I had the mixed grill which consisted of filet, ribeye, and lamb. All were cooked to perfection. I sampled a friends 65 day dry aged ribeye. It was fantastic. Our apps and dessert were keeping with the quality of the mains. Absolutely recommend

Has to be a better way to manage the noise! Good food and service are easily ruined by the noisy bar scene downstairs. We have come to expect it, but wish that wasn't the case. Always a favorite!

Food and service were outstanding however a group of middle aged men who had been drinking were seated next to our table. I made reservations 2 months ago to entertain out of town friends and the group of men didn’t have reservations. They were extremely loud, obnoxious and disturbing all patrons on the 3rd floor. Service staff and management need to do something if this happens again. I consider Oak Steakhouse a high end steakhouse for Charleston and not a sports bar. Will visit Oak Steakhouse locations in future food & table service was great but this experience was not good.

Best restaurant that we visited in Charleston. The food was outstanding!!! The Mixed Grill was extremely flavorful and lobster Mac and Cheese was very delectable as well. Larger portions compared to other restaurants also.

Our waiter was excellent! Food delicious. Our only complaint was, we arrived about 7- 10 minutes before 5:00 pm our reservation was at 5:00. The young hostess at the front informed us they weren't ready to open; come back at 5:00. We left, it was raining, came back at 5:00;they still weren't ready; we asked to at least stay inside & sit at bar, this time they let us until table was ready.

In retrospect, celebrating my wife’s birthday with you was “okay”, but not up to the level of service expected as with my earlier experiences. Our waitress, Ann, who is apparently “new”, failed to present us with a gifted bottle of wine until I asked and had already ordered cocktails. Secondly, the buttery glaze that was ordered on our 16oz ribeye was completely left off, and diminished its flavor considerably. My tip reflected her “weak points” and my note highlighted specifics. Bottom line…for $140+, I expected better. Jim Smith Charleston..,843-327-3251
