    First time eating here to celebrate the holidays with a friend. We were the first ones there at 11::00am, but still the service was terrible. No one was there besides us, but it was apparent that the staff was new and still in the learning curve. They were out of the tiramisu bit we waited 20 minutes for them to advise us of the fact after we placed an order for the dessert. Staff was not knowledgeable at all. Several other groups came in after us and it got very difficult to hear each other.

    Oaken Bistro + BarResponded on December 19, 2022Hi Corry, Thank you so much for taking time to review your most recent visit with us. We want to apologize regarding your dessert. We will be looking into what happened during your trip to our restaurant to prevent this for future guests. As we continue to train and onboard new teams members, we hope you give us another chance in the future. -Oaken Bistro + Bar

    The food was good. I’d recommend the bibimbap. They were very short staffed so it took a long time to get drinks and food ordered. We felt sorry for the hated working bartender/waiter he did everything he could to take care of everyone. There must have been someone I. The hotel that could have come to help him.

    I picked this place because I found it on open table and I wanted to try a new place. I was reconnecting with a business colleague after 10 years. The menu was very limited but I chose tuna fish and it was ok. But the service was non existent. After our waiter brought our food he never came back. We had to get the manager to check out.

    We like the food and drinks at Oaken, in particular this time, there was a refreshing lemonade cocktail. We just wish they would update the Oaken 5 like they used to. They have had the same 3 items (including misspellings on the menu) for 2 months now. We always enjoyed the variety they used to offer.

    Oaken Bistro + BarResponded on June 29, 2022Thank you for being a repeat customer, Gerrym. We're thrilled you enjoyed the cocktail! We'll be sure to consider your feedback for menu rotation and spelling. Looking forward to your return visit.

    We did a family dinner on Father’s Day and overall were very impressed with the whole meal, service, quality of drinks, and everything. The only disappointing thing was the kids menu; they only have 2 items: chicken fingers with fries and PB&J. Since one of our kids has a peanut allergy, our kids had 1 choice. Overall though it was very good, just not great for the kiddos unless they are old enough for adult-sized meals and have adult-sized tastes!

We're glad we were able to deliver an overall good experience. We will use your feedback and consider other menu options for children. We hope we can serve your family again in the future.

    Service was poor but the waitress did state that she was new. A fellow waiter saved the day by helping out. Our order was taken before a bar beverage was offered. Music was so loud conversation at our table was difficult. We did request the volume to be decreased, to no avail. No plans to return in the near future. Food was OK but no accommodation for gluten free or menu choices indicating gluten free.

    Oaken Bistro + BarResponded on May 1, 2022We're sorry that you had such a disappointing experience! Regarding the food, we are always working on menu changes and improvements. The music will be moving outdoors weather permitting. Hopefully you'll be back soon and like what you see!

    A very pleasant surprise. A hotel resturant that doesn’t serve eggos or banquet food. Creative food well prepared. They could go up against most high end fine dinning Resturants . Our server was friendly, informative,and generally a pleasure to deal with. We dine out often this place is a bit beyond our normal dining radius, but worth the trip.

    We always enjoy our food at Oaken. Only giving 4 stars this time because we had a long wait for food. Usually, it’s much quicker. Still, everything was tasty and my husband is now a tofu convert. The tofu in chili sauce was delicious.

    Oaken Bistro + BarResponded on March 21, 2022Thank you, Gerrym!! We're sorry for the long wait; we are doing our best to staff accordingly for our growing business levels, and greatly appreciate your patronage and patience!! We're confident that your next visit will be swifter!
