Oak Steakhouse - Nashville
One of my top favorite steakhouses ever
My wife and I were in town for a long weekend. We chose Oak based off other reviews and the price point, expecting it to be an exceptional experience. It was not. The starter was ok, the side was average, but where they should have shined with the steak was the most disappointing. My wife’s was brought out cooked properly but mine was brought out almost blue when ordered medium rare. I tend to not complain if it’s in the same ball park of what I ordered but this wasn’t even the same sport. Unfortunately I had to send it back and by the time it came back my wife was finished with her meal. When it came back again it was simply more charred yet somehow still blue. I had to send it back a second time and this time it came back as a dried out piece of shoe leather. It was almost like it was thrown in the microwave. The only saving grace was our waiter who was very attentive, pleasant and understanding.
We were quickly seated, our server Katie was amazing, the food was super delicious and the steak might have been the most tender cut I have ever eaten. This is a great place for an amazing dinner and romantic evening.
We actually had dinner 2 nights in a row. The food is spectacular . The manager was so nice and on the second night we returned everyone remembered us on that night. This was like our 5th time to dine there. Everything exceed our expectations!
Top 5 dining experiences of my life. Food, service, ambiance....all amazing!
We had a large party of 11. We were seated on time and had several servers to insure that the meal was a success. My steak (filet) was cooked perfectly! The mushrooms and the mac and cheese were fabulous as was the bread. Very nice wine selection. I definitely recommend and look forward to my next visit.
Great service and amazing food! We went for our anniversary and it was so special!
The service was great. It took a while to get our food managers came out and said he was sorry and it would be right out. When we receive our food stack was dry potatoes were cold and also carrots. We eat at Roth Chris often and this was nothing close. I never right a review but really was hopping to take my wife out while in Nashville to a great dinner for her 50th
Best steak we've had in town! Outstanding service and lovely ambiance. Great for a date night or night out with friends.
The Oak continues to be the best steakhouse in town! The food and service are consistently and always stellar.
Very good food. Wine prices are high for what they are but our service and food was great.
Wonderful!! Food was delicious and it’s beautiful inside.
I thought I was hungry for steak until I saw all the other options. I ended up with a beautiful, and huge, bib salad and the scallop appetizer which was more than adequate for dinner. My nephew had a selection of East and West coast oysters, delicious, and a juicy strip steak with crab and hollandaise. The service was excellent and the atmosphere inviting. Oak is convenient to the stadium and down town.
Food was outstanding! Our waiter Ross was attentive, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of...highly recommend if you're looking for a good meal with a great atmosphere. You will not be disappointed!
Great steakhouse with a unique menu. Everything we got was delicious. Prices could be slightly lower, but the quality was top-notch.. So you get what you pay for.
Exceptional experience with our Server Sam. Everything was great, packed restaurant. Super comfortable seating. One of the best restaurants I have eaten at in Nashville. Strongly recommended. Food was excellent.
Jordan our waiter was one of the best waiters me and my wife have ever had the cook that made my steak was cooked perfect and everything was 5 out of 5 stars
Jesse was an amazing server. Her knowledge of the food and drink made our anniversary wonderful. This was a great dinner.
Food was amazing, and our server was top notch.
Outstanding, Madelyn was wonderful. Steak was fabulous, everything was fabulous.
I’ve had much better steak for 1/2 the cost. Not impressed by menu options either.
Was awesome on all counts. Four of us ordered across the menu and it was uniformly top notch. The service was nice, knowledgeable , and helpful
The service was really great and normally everything
I order at this steakhouse is excellent. On this trip, I ordered the short rib and while the root veggies were good, the char on the short rib was overdone to the point of tasting bitter (much like the taste when you burn toast) and the polenta was super lumpy and not a great texture. The part of the short rib that was not over charred was tender and had excellent flavor near the bone, but much of it was left as the char was just too excessive to be good. It will not deter me from dining here again.
Excellent decor. Loud but the food was excellent. Recommend the short ribs, asparagus.
The food was excellent. I’m not crazy about the sides being per table rather than per individual but my wife and I decided on the asparagus and it was perfectly prepared. I had a ribeye and my wife had filet with King Crab Oscar. The entire bill with tip was about $200 so it’s definitely on the pricey side. Both steaks were USDA Prime and perfectly cooked.
Enjoyed the meal
Great Steak house. The food was perfect, service was perfect. A must-try if you're in the Nashville area.
This place is amazing. They are known for their steaks and offer a wide variety to choose from. My husband had the ribeye which just melted in your mouth. I opted for the short rib which when presented had a beautiful char on the outside yet succulent on the inside. By far the best short rib I have ever had!! I have never seen a short rib as big as this one. We ordered the Aligot potatoes that were silky and rich. Great steak house!!
The food was great.... it just took over 3 hours to eat. We had reservations and were seated upon arrival..My husband promptly ordered our drinks and an appetizer. 45 minutes later we received those. We had by this time already placed our entree orders. Well the appetizer came out and was good.. but then we waited an additional hour for our steaks and sides ( we had medium cooked steaks). It was his birthday so we decided to order a dessert and final drinks. We never received the drinks, and we were seated near the kitchen and watched as our dessert sat there for over 25 minutes as servers ran past it over and over... Food was great but not worth the time and the price. If they could get it together it could have a chance.
We have visited the Oak Steakhouse in Charleston, SC, Alpharetta, Ga and the last night the Nashville, TN location and by far the Nashville location is my favorite. The ambience was very nice, service was stellar and the food was amazing! It was my husband birthday and he ordered the A5 Wagu and he was incredibly happy with his selection. The only drawback he had was that he wished they didn’t cut it for him. However the taste was so unbelievable. Each bite melted in your mouth. I had the dry aged NY strip and I was very happy with my selection. Dry aged steaks is the way to go! The sides didn’t disappoint either! We had the crispy brussel sprouts, which had a pleasant sweetness to it. The Mac and cheese was so creamy and cheesy....we add the lobster and that really set it off. The restaurant gave us an addtl side on the house, the sweet potato hash with blue cheese and bell pepper and it was great as well. I can’t forget the appetizer, we ordered the steak tar tar and it was amazing!!!! Definitely a must try! We ended with cappuccinos and a salted caramel chocolate crumb cheesecake-very decadent. The small slice was perfect and ended off a wonderful dinner! I would totally recommend this place and our server Richard. Very straight up and attentive!
We went to oak to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and could not have asked for a better experience. The restaurant is beautiful, our food was delicious, and our waiter was excellent!
Fantastic Service and food was phenomenal
Thank you for the 5 stars! We look forward to seeing you next time. Dom
My wife and I came to Oak while staying in Nashville on a mix business and pleasure. Restaurant was rated well and we were looking for a steak. Overall, the service was very very good. However the food left a lot to be desired. We both asked for a small filet done Pittsburg style. When the steaks arrived, they looked amazing!!! The temperature and slight char over a medium temperature were literally perfect!! However when we cut into them and took that first bite, there was virtually no seasoning/flavor. Was like not even salt and pepper. Maybe this is how the locals like them but just was not to our taste. Also the mashed potatoes had Asiago cheese, added to appeal maybe to foodies or something but ultimately, the taste reminded me of my workout shoes. Not appetizing. The drinks were great and again the service was outstanding but the meal was a miss for us.. Maybe it was early or just catering to a different client but didn’t work for us.
The OAK STEAKHOUSE was a very nice venue....the food and service was good...but THEN we received the bill, and WE were shocked at the HIDDEN TAXES........an already hyped price on a bottle of wine, was an ADDITIONAL 17% that was unknown or never explained, and when questioned, with the 'manager', WE got this basically, "OH WELL".......and I would highly recommend finding 'another venue' before setting foot in this place again........'great steaks' but after WE pay this bill, I could have bought the 'cow', the 'whole cow'........NASHVILLE really 'sticks it' to the tourists......so, think twice about going there......
Hello, Thank you for visiting us. I'm sorry about the taxes in Nashville. We disclose the additional 15 percent liquor tax on each page of our cocktail/wine menu , however, I understand if guests don't look at it since it's something most cities do not incur. It's our attention to be as transparent as possible listing each line on the receipt and on the menu as well. I appreciate the feedback and we will consider other options for clarity with these taxes. Dom
Very interesting environment, excellent service( had gluten free bread for one in our party) food was outstanding, good portions of ala cart sides.
Matt, our wait staff, was exceptional.
Hi. Thank you for the 5 stars and comment about Matt, I'll be sure to share this with him. Dom
Nice steakhouse in Nashville. Went on a Sunday night and wasn't crowded. Service was very good. Prices are fair and food was excellent. Would definitely go again.
Hi Joe, Thank you for the five stars. I'm glad your dinner was excellent. We look forward to seeing you again. Dom
Very clean and beautiful decor. Food was delicious, drinks were great! Espresso martini was one of the best I’ve ever had. Steak was off the charts!! Brussel sprouts were my FAV!
Hi Elizabeth, I'm so glad to read you had a great time! Thank you for all the kind words. Dom
Steak ( medium) was brought out rare. So they took it back to the kitchen- waited 15 minutes while my guests finished their meals. Then they brought the same steak out charred so bad I couldn’t eat it
Hello Jed, I'm so sorry you didn't get to enjoy your steak dinner. I would be happy to buy you a steak on your next visit and make sure its perfect for you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org I hope to hear from you Dom
