Our first visit to OAK was for Easter brunch. The meal was outstanding. Since they only offer brunch three days out of the year, this was a treat. The service was phenomenal, the food was better than anything I've eaten in Charlotte in a long time. We can't wait to come back and enjoy happy hour or dinner.

My best friend from elementary school came to visit. We had an amazing meal and great wine! The steak was the best I’ve had in a long time. The asparagus and creamed spinach was spectacular. Also the bread was just as amazing with the most delicious honey butter. I can’t wait to go back!

They could not locate our reservation, decor is just another dark steak house, mixed up our steaks when there was only two of us.

Food was absolutely amazing. I got the roasted chicken and my husband got a meal that had lamb, sirloin and new York strip and his was good as well. The roasted chicken had a crispy skin and was moist and flavorful. The corn grits are creamy but also have a chunk texture in them. There is a sauce that has the perfect level of heat, would definitely order this again. My husband's dish was cooked perfectly medium rare like he ordered. The potatoes in the red wine sauce was a flavorful bite. Also we ordered pork belly macaroni which was a whiter shade of macaroni so not sure what all cheeses are used but in too was as good as everything else. The restaurant is a pricier restaurant plates range from $24 roughly to up to $55 and some of the more expensive cuts of steak went as high as $70s and $90s but quality flavorful food that is worth the price.

I found the steaks to be unrealistically expensive, so I had something else, even though I really wanted to eat steak. Our waitress was very attentive, but the food was extremely slow coming out. The foie gras appetizer was presented in a way that it was not recognizable, nor did i get any taste of foie gras - it was OK, but didn't check the box for foie gras. I ordered a 2nd glass of wine (a different one than the 1st glass, and the waiter came with a carafe and poured it on top of what was still in my glass. When i told him, he quickly brought me replacements (for both), and was very apologetic, but i would have liked for him to ask first. I was a bit disappointed overall - I'll probably try it once more, but it didn't live up to the price points.

My wife and I went there to celebrate her birthday. The greeter and our server were very pleasant, and the filet we enjoyed was super tender and very tasty. The maple glazed brussel sprouts were absolutely fantastic, as was the creamed spinach. As a final touch, we ordered a piece of cheesecake, and it was delivered with a birthday candle and a very nicely written "Happy Birthday" on the plate in chocolate. Overall, a perfect experience.

A question I always ask myself at the end of dining is was this the experience I hoped for or was it just mediocre? Typically, when I pick a restaurant it’s likely I’ve picked the spot from many options based on what I’m feeling, ambiance and a menu to best flatter my tastes and those of my guests. This was a business dinner with an important client. The service was slow and not friendly. The appetizers were weirdly scant especially the meat & cheese board that I could have assembled for a few dollars at my neighborhood market. We had full view of the kitchen and after watching some rather disgusting behavior which I will keep private I decided to pass on eating my entre. Even though it sat untouched through dinner not once did anyone ask if there was a problem. This is definitely a one-an-done for me and I hope if they want to become relevant they step up their game and hygienics.

Everything was awesome! Only complaint was that the dry aged ribeye had a few bites where the fat could not be chewed through. A cut like that, I would hope that everything is tender with no bites that leave you chewing for 2 minutes then spitting it out.

I'm all for sitting and enjoying a nice long dinner but this was a bit too much sitting. I took some out of town family to Oak and ended up leaving embarrassed by my choice. The 2 salads, vegetarian plate, and filet {medium rare} took 30-40 minutes to arrive once ordered. I had to ask the waitress about it and also remind her that we were missing a soda we asked for when we ordered. The waitress checked on us once and then walked by several times without even a look in our direction. We had to literally flag her down for the bill and decided to do dessert some where else due to the bad vibe. My family wasn't at all impressed the the salads and I will now be checking out another steakhouse due to the poor service.

Our waitress was amazing! She was attentive and informative.
The food wasn’t the best...lacked flavor and not enjoyable. The steak was over cooked and the excuse given was the light was poor. There’s a significant difference between medium rare and well. This is my second time and both experiences were disappointing, both in taste and value.

We celebrated my husband's birthday with friends at Oak Steakhouse. It was the first time any of us had been there and we were all very happy with every aspect of our dinner. Our server, Alexis, was attentive, thoughtful, happy, and really just great! She offered excellent suggestions. Our meal began with the Foie Gras, Carpaccio, and Grilled Octopus. We all enjoyed steak dinners (of course, right?!), and were very pleased with the quality, flavor, and beautiful finish on the steaks. For our sides we selected the Brussels Sprouts, Corn, and Crispy Potatoes. While we found the wine list to offer many nice selections, we opted to bring our own (the birthday boy's selection). The staff handled the corkage professionally. We shared the Oak Chocolate Cake and the Caramel Apple Bread Pudding. It was a wonderful evening and we will be happy to return to Oak Steakhouse in the future.

Our server was Alexis and she was very sweet to my wife and myself. Asked us questions about ourselves and was very thoughtful in conversation. We ordered a salad to split which was phenomenal. The Oak burgers were cooked to perfection which speaks a lot since my wife is not a big meat eater or burgers but she just couldn't put it down. The frites that came along with were great too and we cleared our plates for sure. Highly recommend.

We have eaten at Oak more than a dozen times. We have often defended Oak from critics who complained about poor service at high prices. We received both tonight. Oak’s signature cocktail 75 & Sunny was unavailable- what? Spring is here?? You can’t make it with your sophisticated bartenders??

Dinner: We asked if the bolognese could be made or changed out for a non meat alternative. Answer: NO. Options? none.

The jalapeño corn bread served in a skillet, another fab, was burned! Yikes.

Fantastic meal! Josh was amazing! He heard we had our anniversary over the weekend and brought us a celebratory toast. It made us feel super special. He also recommended some of the new cocktails based on our preferences, and they were great. The food was delicious and everything was cooked perfectly (thanks Mike, Eric, and the rest of the kitchen crew!). The manager Aaron was very personable and checked on us a couple times throughout our meal. The hostess Amanda was very friendly as we arrived and departed. All around a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back, and asking for Josh!

The steaks were good but not the best I’ve had for fine steakhouse dining. I was most impressed with the sides and salad, had brussels and crispy potatoes as well as the Oak salad which were delicious. The atmosphere is nice. Biggest complaint was very slow and somewhat disjointed service. Because this is a pricey restaurant and our socks were not knocked off, I doubt we will go back.

Loved the restaurant, service was amazing. Very attentive. Food was really good but way expensive. I’d go back but. not frequently due to value being so high priced. Nice bar area. Would prob go back for a drink. Also wine was like three times higher priced than other restaurants.

Went out for a nice dinner with our family of 5. Started off by having no one at the host stand to great us. Finally after a few minutes a waiter comes to welcome us. Manager comes and says he needs a few minutes before he can seat us. The restaurant is not crowded and we had a reservation. After getting to our table our waiter finally arrived. He attempts to rush us thru our ordering without telling us any specials etc. takes the adult drink orders but not the kids so I had to call him back to the table. Then he disappears for over 10 minutes. Returns to say the bar is super busy. Ok things happen. Finally get our drinks. Appetizers arrived all is great. Waiter has disappeared again. He never returns to ask how appetizers were. We flag him down again to order a bottle of wine and kids drinks. He proceeds to tell me the refills aren’t free. I say it’s ok. They deliver my sons lemonade it is fizzy the 1st one wasn’t. So now we are worried their was a mistake. We have to flag the waiter again he proceeds to tell us they make them different every time and someone probably put club soda in it. I asked nicely to have it remade with out the fizzy soda please. Then our meals arrived each delivered at a different time. My one sons pasta was well over cooked. So that had to sent back. Everything else was delicious. Desserts were fantastic. Overall the food was delicious the service was horrendous. We won’t be going back.
