We had high hopes for OASIS. We arrived and within minutes the restaurant started filling up with fumes from the body shop next door. The OASIS doesn’t have walls to the ceiling of the restaurant.

You could taste fumes in the food. It started to get really cold in the restaurant and quickly discovered that they had turned on high powered ceiling fans to try and clear the air of the restaurant from the fumes.

The prices were really high for the dining experience and our waiter only came by once after having to wait over 45 minutes for our food.

I would be very cautious in dining in this restaurant!

This is a little hidden gem that's tucked away off the street. The ambiance is quaint, cute and simple. They really made use of the space. The service was on point and the food was decent and a little pricey. I loved the facts that they stayed open a little later than other restaurants. Oh, the drinks were my highlight. Yummers

The food was very good, and we enjoyed the surprisingly comfortable ambience, given the restaurant's odd location. But it is supremely overpriced, especially given the size of the portions. We enjoyed ourselves, nonetheless.

Wonderful little hidden gem in the Valley. Could not have been happier to have found this place!! Lovely ambiance, fantastic food, great service, all in all a wonderful experience. If I had to complain about anything I thought the prices were a little high but, that being said, I will definitely be back. Absolutely fabulous!!

Went for a birthday celebration. Service was good and attentive. Ambiance and appeal is great. The food was the biggest let down.

Order colossal shrimp cocktail. It was dirty and still had some matter on the meat. I ordered the surf and turf. The lobster tail was respectable but the veggies and filet mignon lacked basic seasoning. I asked for medium but received well done.

To be clear this place has an abundance of potential but for the price being charged the expectation is the price tag meets the quality of the meal.

It was our first time dining at Oasis and our first impression, as walk in, was an unexpected pleasant ambience. We were greeted and seated promptly and our sever, Brenda, went our of her way to accommodate our specific request for our dinner meal. She did an amazing job throughout our meal and we did not feel rushed. Our drinks were done to perfection thanks to the bartender and Brenda. We had the pleasure of meeting Juan who was supervising this evening and made us feel welcomed and at home.

We will be returning back soon.

We were surprised at the location, but the set-up was really nice. The food was great. I think the drinks were a bit overpriced and the way they charged for the drinks was a bit confusing. It was broken up on multiple lines on the receipt.

But overall, it was nice. We enjoyed it.

We were seated in a timely manner & given a large booth for four guests. Our waiter was patient & energetic. We ordered a Strawberry Mojito, glass of red wine, Vodka Mule & a Strawberry Mojito mocktail. Then we ordered the Smoked Guacamole ($13) and Spicy Tuna Tartare ($16) for appetizers. For entrees, we ordered two 8oz Angus Filet, one Wagyu Burger, two Truffle Bacon Mac & Cheese, Brussels Sprouts & Spinach. We ordered the filets to be cooked medium-done & my steak was certainly more on the medium-well side… Regardless, the steak was flavorful. Brussels were solid & the truffle mac was creamy (no cheese-pull) & lacked any flavor of truffle. Because it was one of our birthdays, they brought out some kind of cake with a candle in it, but we have no idea what kind of cake it was & it was not good. The waiter then said he was going to bring the check without offering dessert. We wanted dessert.. but should have known better after tasting the cake, but we went ahead & ordered the Creme Brûlée & the Chocolate Salter Caramel cake. Terrible. The cake was dry and the creme brûlée lacked any burnt sugar on the top. It was simply a layer of sugar & strawberry juice from the nasty looking fruit they topped it with. We took one bite & sent both back. The waiter removed both from the bill. Dinner was solid until dessert & only got worse after that. Once he brought the bill, he told us there was a gratuity charge already included in the bill. This is my first time having gratuity included on a table less than 6. And to make matters worse, they charged a 23% gratuity. Also, there was a $15 discount if we paid cash instead of card… weird. Finally, we didn’t realize it until we got home, but they list the Vodka mule as $14 on the website but charged $16 for the drink + $3 for the mule… what? so $19 for a Vodka Mule. Complete rip off & our fault for not digging into the bill. Overall, it was sketchy & overpriced. You can get better food & service at Mastro’s. Save your coins.

Our server was Alec and he was very friendly and high energy and gave us great advice on the menu. The food came out quickly. Our plates were bussed immediately and we loved the vibe. The valet was a little peculiar but not much they can do with the limited space. And the valet attendant was very kind and warm. We will be back soon. Thanks to our hostess as well for being so welcoming.

We spent our anniversary here at Oasis and it was a great experience! The food is super yummy and the service is excellent!
Thanks to our server Juan for being so nice to give us some wine when we arrived and a special cake for our anniversary before we leave. Totally worth coming in here! 😁😁😁😁

It was a nice hidden gem in the San Fernando Valley, Loved that it was outdoors under the lights & had late night service. So many places are closing early still during the pandemic. Great food, drinks and lovely date night. Glad we found this cute spot on Open Table—we will be back!

I love the ambiance of this place! Live music, great service, and amazing food. My fav is the surf and turf. The waitress was nice and helped me coordinate a gender reveal to my husband by having the bar tender make him a blue cocktail. It was captured on video and made for a magical night. This is one of our new fav date spots.

The $20.00 cancellation fee is worrisome. I’m almost 80 years old and never know what can happen. The rolls were warm and the balsamic butter as great. Our server very nice. Location awful, so it is truly an Oasis in a lower class business neighborhood.

This is a GEM of a place in Van Nuys. We ate here to celebrate a deal closing and the client is an esteemed dancer and choreographer living in Van Nuys. We wanted a location close to him and a little bit off the beaten path (i.e. not on venture blvd). Oasis -- so aptly named -- provided just that. A warm, friendly, open, and fine dining establishment. Drinks were delicious, apps were delectable, and the entrees (we had the golden filet and lamb chops) were outstanding. I look forward to more business dinners here in the future.
