Our first time going for dinner. Was very good. My husband and I enjoyed The Old Fashioned drink. We are watching our sugar, and asked for no simple syrup and it was no problem and so yummy!! The rolls are fabulous! Everything was great. The french frites are so good. And we got the Chocolate layer cake with passion fruit ice cream. Out of this world! Ask for Danny, he was our server and the BEST in my opinion. Very thorough, friendly and perfection. KUDOS Danny, you ROCK!!!! We enjoyed ourselves and will be back!!

No service, and management is very superficial. Don’t expect attention unless you’re wearing a sports coat or flashy clothes.

The food was fantastic! We shared a large ribeye steak and it was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. They offer several steak sauces, but you really don't need them as the meat was perfect. We also tried the roasted beet salad and loved it. The broccolini and the mashed potatoes were great side pairings with the steak. We're definitely looking forward to going back sometime.

We celebrated my birthday at Oak Steakhouse on a Tuesday evening. This was also our first visit to the restaurant. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with great ambiance. The hostess was very welcoming and we were immediately seated at a nice table by the windows. The chairs were plush and comfortable. Our waitress was attentive, friendly and we never wanted for anything all night. We got the Parker House rolls and OMG were they delicious! I ordered one of the specials of the night - the dry aged bone-in ribeye. It was spectacular! I love steak and this one in particular was cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. It was a perfect evening all around. The attention to detail - everyone wishing me a happy birthday to the timing of the meal to the attire of the waitstaff (they even wear the same shoes) was spot on. We will definitely return ASAP!

Appetizers came out immediately and were cold. We ordered a medium rare steak and it was well done. Sides were cold and steak was tough. All this for $125 per person.

I made a reservation here to celebrate my wife's birthday. We loved the quiet, romantic ambiance. We had a little table for two by the window and the comfy chairs immediately made us feel right at home. The server, whose name I do not recall, was wonderful. We shared the cobb salad, which was delicious, as an appetizer. We then ordered the dry aged ribeye -- it was a special they were featuring. For sides, we ordered the mac and cheese and roasted broccolini. The mac and cheese was especially good, but I wasn't a huge fan of the broccolini. The steak was cooked to perfection (midrare) and tasted amazing. We were too full for dessert but the options sounded delicious. Our overall experience at this restaurant was excellent. We don't get to enjoy establishments like this one often because they are not within our budget, but for a celebration it's the perfect spot for us. A special thank you to the attentive staff and our server for a night well done!

The food and service were excellent. One thing to watch for, and the server was very clear, the meats come out redder. I did send mine back for a little warm up and should have ordered med-well.

What a great downtown restaurant! We loved the ambiance and it was a great place to spend our anniversary. Food was a excellent, though a bit on the salty side. Everything we ordered was delicious. Service was absolutely outstanding! Our waiter couldn't have been better.

Food preparation is hit or miss. The steak, which was a good cut of meat, was carelessly oversalted. Steak tartare was prepared with an overpowering kind of mayo. On the other hand, sides of mushrooms and fries were perfectly done. For these prices, the kitchen should be more spot on and meticulous.

This was our second time at Oak steakhouse. The Parker rolls are amazing as well as the hanger steak! Both times we have excellent service! I wish I could remember our waiters name. He was efficient and anticipated all our needs before we even asked. We will definitely visit again.

Oak served one of the best meals I’ve had in Raleigh! The price tag was high, but worth every penny. The rolls were amazing and steak almost melted in your mouth. The attention to detail, even down to servers shoes matching, was impressive.

Great dining experience in downtown Raleigh. The valet parking is a huge bonus if you aren’t near enough to walk over. Also, I’m not usually a bread proponent, but their fresh Parkerhouse rolls are a must.

My birthday dinner. Table of 6. Was so excited for this place. Service excellent. Ambiance fantastic. Appetizers delicious. Bar exceptional. Drinks amazing. And now the ugly. They need schooled in over salting. and how to prepare a steak. Our steaks were cold and not prepared to order. The french fries were so incredibly salty really horrible. I wasn’t sending back or complaining because It was my birthday. And we were in a group. Will I be back? Not for awhile. Please make this work because Raleigh needs great restaurants. Not mediocre ones.

This is the second time eating at The Oak. The first was a few weeks after they opened and was honestly one of the best steaks, best meals, best evenings ever. Unfortunately, the second go-around was not the same. Everything - including the apps and sides - were way over seasoned. Much too salty. The restaurant was much more crowded, too, which significantly increased the noise.
The service was great, as usual, but unfortunately could not make up for the unsatisfactory food.

Mouth watering steaks. The deviled eggs are a great started. Not a $$ restaurant like they advertise but hard to complain when the servers were attentive and everything they brought out was delicious.
