Took over 3 hours from start to finish. Took a lot of time in between drinks and ordering.

Food was okay, everything was too salty though. Wine was amazing. Service was nice but not very fast.

Excellent food, service and drinks. Nice decor. Like that the tables were not crammed together . Plenty of space to walk around tables.

our server, Angela, was AMAZING. The right level of attention to us and care about the menu. She really know how to make us feel taken care of. The steaks we ordered (filet and hanger) were just not up to par and at that price point - they should be excellent. On the plus side, the deviled egg with fried oyster on top was a surprising delight - great idea / execution!

First time customer and the experience was solid...It’s a steak house, obviously, but anything beyond that is limited...and certainly not on the value side of a dining visit...everybody in our party had positive feedback on their meals...the sides were delicious...the wine pours are minuscule to say the least...

Really nice dinner with a friend at Oak--last minute reservation was available so we were seated promptly. Our server was patient with our jabbering and we did not feel rushed. He was incredibly attentive to refilling our drinks(one club soda with lime and one club soda-cranberry). The truffle fries were a-m-a-z-i-n-g though my burger was ordered medium but came out well done(I didn't send it back or complain---the kitchen was busy). It had great flavor and the topings were fabulous---had it without a bun so can't comment on the bread. The brussel sprouts were a little greasy but otherwise super tasty. The decadent chocolate cake dessert that looked calorie worthy was a little dry and flat on flavor so we only nibbled at it but having said that, we were really full and probably should have never ordered dessert! We were sitting right next to the kitchen so I could see food sitting and waiting to be picked up so my only concern is probably the length of time it took for a few servers to grab their food---but I have never worked food services so I may be off.
I am 2 for 3 at Oak. Two great experiences and one not great experience. I will give it a 4th try.

Service was outstanding and food was great but they were out of filets and lobster thermidor?! At A steakhouse. That was disappointing but overall it was still a good experience.

Elegant yet subdued environment in the warehouse district near downtown. Easy access and parking close by. Very diversified selection of snacks, small plates, salads, entrees, steak & chops. We enjoyed Foie Gras & Chicken Liver Pate, Coq Au Vin, and Carolina Heritage Pork Schnitzel. It was all very well done. The wine and cocktail selection is copious. And most importantly, the service was quick, attentive with helpful advice. Highly recommended.

Loved our dinner here. Apps were wonderful, as were cocktails. Especially enjoyed the deviled eggs topped with fried oysters and the Vietnamese style crispy pig ears. Two of our guest got the Beef Wellington and and said it was superb. Two of us got the bone in filet out of habit and regretted it. Temps were a little off and the cut was surprisingly sinewy. That being said we had more than enough food and the service was wonderful. They accommodated all our requests and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our experience. We’ll be back but next time I’m getting the Hanger steak.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Oak Steakhouse. The meal from the Raleigh Restaurant Week menu was excellent (hanger steak cooked to perfection accompanied by a kale caesar salad and a chocolate bonet for desert). The ambiance of the restaurant is interesting and well designed accented by different light fixtures in various sections. Comfortable seating far apart enough for privacy and quiet enough for conversation. The manager stopped by and briefly chatted-a very nice touch. All in all, excellent. The Oak is definitely on our list for a return visit.

We went to Oak Steakhouse during restaurant week. It was a great experience especially from a service perspective.

The bread is amazing, it unfortunate you have to order it and it's not just included in the experience (but it is worth it.

Steaks were perfectly done. I ordered the Oscar on top which was good but not great.

Desserts were quite fantastic!

The ambiance and restaurant interior are beautiful. The service really missed the mark though. Knowledgeable and friendly staff - but the timing and pacing was really drawn out and made the restaurant feel very amateur and a far cry from proper city dining. The food was pretty good (except for the creamed spinach, which was like gum). Highly recommend the deviled egg and oysters rockefeller for starters.

I like to try a restaurant that I have not visited during Triangle Restaurant Week. My husband and I were very pleased with Oak Steakhouse from the moment we arrived until valet returned our car. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the ambiance was just right. I highly recommend this place.
