    Our waiter was very nice and the food was very good. A bit overpriced, but that is typical for a restaurant located in a hotel.

    While the service was polite and professional the food was subpar. I ordered crab cakes for an appetizer and they came swimming in a mayonnaise base and didn’t resemble crab cakes at all. The market fish was over cooked snapper. My husband sent his snapper back but did settle on a burger. Not great. Wouldn’t recommend.

    We came for New Years Eve to try something different. We weren't disappointed. The food was excellent. The price was very reasonable. We stayed at the hotel and came back for breakfast. It was on point. Looking forward to visiting again.

    The resturant was what you would expect from a hotel restaurant. It was okay but there are better options in town. The service at the restaurant and bar was not what I would typically expect and I did not feel any southern hospitality. Overall it was fine but I do not think I would go again. I will say, the hotel overall is very lovely.

    The restaurant was closed so we had to sit at the bar section. This should have been stated when making reservations. The limited menu items were good but there were missing items in that menu as well. The food was good and service was friendly as it was almost empty. 99% California wines. Was it worth $450? Absolutely not.

    Mr. Orthoram, I am very sorry to hear about your experience and appreciate your feedback. It was not our intention to not have the restaurant available for our guests and I will ensure that this is prevented in the future. We will be reworking our wine list in the very near future to include more of a variety of wines as well. We do hope that you visit again, we would appreciate the opportunity to have you experience the full atmosphere of Southern Oak. Please reach out directly and I will personally ensure that you have a great experience. Sincerely, Chris Brown

    I went her for my anniversary dinner and I must say this was an outstanding dinner experience! We had a great waiter who was super polite and made us feel special! This was an upscale experience. The food tasted soo fresh and delicious! It was full of flavor and cooked to perfection. We were thankful for the complimentary cheesecake dessert to help us celebrate our special night. The cheesecake was perfect with a great balance of sweetness. I highly recommend this restaurant for top notch experience.
