Awesome food with options that aren’t like the standard brunch options in the area. The staff is always super friendly and knows a lot about the menu. Our new favorite!

Many of my company ordered the Carbonara dish. It was really weird to include cream and corn. Tasted fine, but was odd for a carbonara dish.

Pizza crust was burned. Who wants to eat burned crust?

We continue to be pleasantly surprised at the food choices at The Oak. Chief Brandon is amazing. We watched him make fresh noodles for Italian dishes at the side counter. It was an fun education. Friday night we had the Meatball appetizer. 3 biggie "delish" meatballs that were a meal in themselves. WOW then our main course was the Salmon Wedge Salad with the house dressing. Could eat it all. Great atmosphere, food value and food. I recommend Lunch, Dinner or casual evenings with terrific beverages at The Oak. You are surrounded by great fun people.

We went to Oak with out of town family. A party of 10. 8 of us ordered pizzas, 2 ordered salads. After about 25 minutes, 3 pizzas came. These pizzas were all barely warm. Did not taste like they just came out of a 700 degree pizza oven, more like they were sitting on the counter for the last 10 minutes. The Margherita pizza was soggy and floppy. After another 10 minutes, 3 more pizzas came. These pizzas were hot. The Big Chair was flavorful. The waitress did not come back for about 10 minutes, and only realized they forgot 2 peoples pizzas when we told her. It took another 15 minutes for these 2 pizzas to come. And when they arrived, they were visibly black and burnt. I would normally have complained to a manager on the spot but didn't want to make a big deal with family there.
They had live music which was cool. But it echoed incredibly, making it almost impossible to chat during our dinner. Our waitress seemed distracted and too busy to really take care of us.

Our goal is to have our food come out together and hot. I apologize this did not happen. This not how we do things and I will use this to teach our team how to better serve. I believe when our pizza is done to standard it is unbeatable. I know your next visit will surprise and delight. Thank you so much for your feedback With care Brentlee GM at OAK

I was so annoyed by the noise level I'm sure I won't be back. The food was okay, but not good enough to make up for it. We also had great service with a full-time server and a trainee. I unfortunately didn't get their names, but they were pleasant, funny, and efficient.

The food is amazing. It’s a very lively atmosphere. The employees are engaging. Everything about this is a five star except the noise. Because it’s so open, you here everything. It was hard to carry on a conversation. The open seating is accommodating to a lot of people but takes away from the privacy. I felt the price was a little steep for the atmosphere. I have a girls night coming up and for the food it’s my number one pick, but to catch up with friends, not my first pick. That’s the only drawback for me. Again...... FOOD WAS AMAZING.

We love that Oak is right here in Draper!!! The food is always amazing (especially the baked goat cheese) and feels like a fun trendy restaurant that you'd travel downtown for, but it's conveniently right here in Draper!! I frequently meet friends here for lunch, been for brunch, ordered take out, and most recently took the family (with two teenagers) for New Year's Eve where there was a nice energetic crowd! It's all great! There are TVs if you want to catch a game, but doesn't feel like a sports bar. Super beer selection, too. Highly recommend!! Did I mention we're lucky to have Oak right here in Draper!?! :)

This is normally one of my top “go to” places when going out to eat. We made our reservation for 6:00 and the table was ready for us when we got in, which was great. Our server, Ryan, was decent. He is typically the one who helps us and we’ve never had an issue. However, he made us feel very rushed the entire meal, constantly talking fast and on edge the entire time. Maybe he was having a rough day, we get it, we will let it slide. However, as we wrapped up and paid we chatted for a bit as we were catching up with a friend. Ryan came to make sure we were done and said “good, there are people out there waiting”. Excuse me?... we were watching the lobby constantly to be courteous as we have all been a server at one point. There were open tables, and this family just walked in. We tipped him over 20% on our bill and sat for MAYBE 10 minutes after we were finished. This was a huge turnoff and a weekly customer is now questioning coming back. Don’t plan to go during peak hours if you want a nice meal and to enjoy yourself

The food has really gone downhill lately. We keep trying to go back and give it a try because we like the ambiance, but we have tried almost everything and the only things that are consistently good are the appetizers - goat cheese and cauliflower. So sad - I want to love it :( There was live music the other night when we went. The singer was great - just a little too small of a space - seemed LOUD.
