Excellent service. Very expensive for value received. Steaks were overdone and salty. Appetizers we're very good however. Sides also very tasty.

The steaks were wonderful. The lobster/macaroni was such comfort food and the mushrooms were a perfect side for the steak. Perfect evening .

Friends had suggested we visit Oak steakhouse, so last Friday we popped by for an early dinner and we are certainly glad we did! The atmosphere was lovely, the service attentive and personal, and the food was excellent. My husband had the filet, with bearnaise on the side. I had the incredibly yummy mushroom soup, and Caesar salad topped with a huge piece of salmon (large enough that I had the leftovers home and made a full meal of it for myself the next night). The wine by the glass list had an Oregon pinot on it, so that was also a positive. Hubby said that his steak was in the top 8 of all steaks he has ever ordered. We will be back, and hopefully soon!

Went for first time for dinner on Sunday after Thanksgiving so it was quiet, not too busy. But really liked the decor, upscale club feeling but comfortable. Good service. Steaks are expensive. My pork chop was outstanding, and I'm picky about them. I thought it was a fair price at $29. Will go back.

Oak is the favorite steak house in Charlotte -- and I don't eat beef. Their other protein options are equally as wonderful, the staff is well-educated, timely, courteous, and professional. Food is simply fabulous, wine options are spot-on, and the desserts..... WOW! They make every dinner special for their patrons. High recommendation!

The food was wonderful! I went with the 8oz filet and it was an amazing cut—atleast 3” thick, and it was cooked perfectly. The Brussels sprouts were tasty but I think my favorite part of the meal may have been the crispy potatoes. Great wine selection too! Looking forward to coming back!

Enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner here. Fixed menu was fabulous. Plate included both white & dark meat, traditional holiday favorites - sweet potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce - and even willing to make minor substitution for those who don’t fancy sweet potatoes. Been craving the butternut squash soup ever since. Generous portions. And even more generous service. Highly recommend. Look forward to getting back to try regular menu. Well done, Oak Steakhouse!

Went for my husbands birthday and had a great time. Food was wonderful, loved the atmosphere and would definitely try it again. Only problem we had was with service. Took about twenty minutes for any non-alcoholic beverages such as a coke or water. Would have to ask other servers for water as ours never filled ours even after being reminded multiple times. In his defense it seemed he had too many tables to take care of so may need more servers.

The place is beautiful and has a friendly staff. We had both ordered the burrata salad, filets, mac n cheese, and whipped potatoes.

The burrata salad was amazing the filets and Mac n cheese were cold. I could even touch the cast iron pot the Mac n cheese was in and it was barely warm. The whipped potatoes were hot. We did not send it back because it was 9:20pm and we had already waited quite awhile for our food to come.

I have celiac and am sensitive to dairy. I made note of this when making the reservation. When our waitress came to the table she addressed my dietary restrictions and had already discussed my options with the chef. I felt very valued as a customer and safe to eat there. Anyone with food allergies knows how much of a burden you feel when requesting accommodations, but Oak made me feel like a normal diner again. The food was fabulous and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. Thanks for a wonderful birthday meal, Oak.

I was in Charlotte for the weekend. I was looking to dine at a Steakhouse. I chose Oak Steakhouse, as it was new to me; as I've been to Ruth Chris several times. Oak didn't disappoint. Everything was outstanding . . . bartender, wait staff, food taste, presentation, dessert and drinks. A repeat for me if ever in the area again.

Atmosphere was great, not a loud restaurant which was great. Service was very good and waiter steered us to some good choices. Probably one of the best Octopus appetizers that i have had this year. Pork chop was very good as was the salmon. Lobster mac n cheese was fine...not outstanding. Server brought out a complimentary mini appetizer bite. You don't see that often from restaurants. Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert but the menu looked very good. I did think my cocktail could have been a little bigger for $14 but not a deal breaker what so ever. I will definitely be back.

I love this restaurant! Recommended by a friend, went to celebrate another friend’s accomplishment. Restaurant took note that we were celebrating and politely inquired, served a complimentary Prosecco. A great surprise.
Wonderful, outstanding service. Jennifer was our server and she was informative, kind, efficient and subtle. Cocktails were well executed, have the Saskatoon if you like Old Fashioneds. Great steak, available Chicago style, Pittsburgh style and any other way you like it. Braised octopus, which we were very scared to order, was amazing. Texture of lobster...so tender and so tasty. Will definitely return.

If it were only the service, I would gladly give Oak Steakhouse a 5+. Our server, Grace, provided terrific and attentive service. My only complaint was a snafu with the food. I ordered a 14 ounce bone-in filet. My husand's entree and our sides looked great (and were great!). But I could see there was an issue with the cut of the steak. The bone was at least 2 inches thick and most of the steak was only about a half inch. I ordered medium rare and, of course, it was well done. The server who delivered our plates should have seen this right away. Anyway, Grace came by and saw that the steak was in no way what I had ordered and she whisked it away to get another. The manager also stopped by and talked with us. To the restaurant's credit, they did as much as they could to make this right -they even brought new sides when my steak was delivered - so that I could enjoy them hot. It certainly, wasn't the worst thing that could have happened and we ate very well. Just a bit disappointed in the kitchen and the fact that my husband and I couldn't enjoy our dinner at the same time. Their was clearly a problem with how that piece of meat had been butchered and they simply tried to pass it off. I would give the restaurant another chance, though, simply due to the high service level. The restaurant also treated me to a delicious piece of cake for my birthday :) Although I am a chocholic, I couldn't pass up the lemon olive oil cake - it was delicious!

If you get a chance to go, make sure Grace is your server. Her knowledge and sweet personality made this a great dining experience. She was absolutely amazing. The food was great too. The cocktail was strong, the Rockefeller oysters were huge, their mushroom bisque was delicious and filling and their Brussels Sprouts and Filet Mignon was fabulous. We received a little complimentary appetizer that set the tone and got us excited for the main course. It’s the impeccable service that makes them stand out from all other fancy places!
