    Do not order the lamb dish, it is way too overcooked and ruined my meal. I explained that to the waiter, but he did not offer a discount or any other remuneration. My partner’s food (filet) and the other food were very delicious.

    Although our server, Joy, warned us she was brand new she proved to be knowledgable, attentive, and beyond capable of providing an overall incredible experience. The food was very surprising—in a good way! Nothing we ordered came out looking or tasting as we expected. We were absolutely delighted from start to finish! We started with the complimentary house bread and butter. Do not skip this! The specialty flavored butters are a surprising treat with the warm, fresh baked bread. We then enjoyed a harvest salad and ahi tuna wraps, both fresh and flavorful. As our main, we shared the catch of the day, etouffe, which came with corn, scallops, and the main dish over rice. The scallops were perfectly seared, the cream sauce with the corn was amazing, and the dish itself was delicious. By this point in the meal, we were positively stuffed! The portion sizes were big and overall such a great value given the quality of the ingredients and flavor profiles we experienced. We wrapped up our meal with the bananas foster bread pudding which, sadly, was the only thing we actually paused and took a picture of. This dessert, like the entire experience, was exquisite. We will definitely be back and can’t wait to try everything else on the menu. Highly recommend!!

    The appetizers and salad were good. Our brand new waitress did a great job. Dessert was good. Unfortunately the almond crusted trout was extremely bland. We don’t think they used any seasonings at all. We had to wait in the bar for a bit as they said our table was not ready yet. The bar has a great vibe and the bartender was wonderful. When they alerted us our table was ready we asked if we could possibly have a booth, the manager told us no, the two booths that we could see were empty , she said they had to keep open for other people coming. Also, not sure why we had to wait as when we walked in there were 8 tables all the same size available. As we were leaving (close to closing time) the two booths were still empty. Service begins at the top and trickles all the way down through the entire staff. If a manager is not interested in assisting diners have a great experience the staff is going to pick up on that and follow suit. We will not waste another dinner at The Oak Room.
    The OAK room & barResponded on March 29, 2024
    Hello, I do apologize that i was not able to sit you at a booth. I had requests for booths with our reservations and one cancelled due to unforseen circumstances and the other party went up in size and could not fit. Open table does allow requests for tables/booths as well as requests are taken by my hostess when making the reservation on the phone. I am sorry that we could not seat you right away even though we had the tables available. Unfortunately, I did not have a server available until we sat you. Hopefully we see you again and i will make sure you have a better experience. Amanda

    Found the food subpar for the price. Smoked Mac and Cheese was too smokey, filet with regular seasoning was so salty, I couldn't finish. Glass of wine was sour and sent back. Area was too noisy and hard to carry on a conversation between two people. Unfortunate that I can't recommend.

    Ambiance was great and service was great. The menu was unimaginative. I think they forgot to put onions in my onion soup. Other food was ok but way overpriced. Cocktails and wine also way over priced. Only chardonnay by the glass was $19 and the pour was poor. We will never go back as there are many good restaurants in Hot Springs to go to.

    Let me apologize again for your food taking longer. There is no excuse, absolutely. I am going over a retrain with your server and I have spoken to the Chef about the time your food took to come out of the kitchen. It was the least I could do to comp your table of 4 in its entirety to try to make your dining experience more enjoyable. I appreciate your feedback and would like to welcome you to come back so we can treat you to the best of Oaklawn service. Amanda

    The pork belly is amazing. Steaks are very good. Excellent overall food quality. It’s moderately expensive so I gave it a 4 on value. But that’s like complaining about the gas mileage on a Shelby mustang. Will go back.

    Worst food we have ever had at a nice restaurant. We ordered a 6oz fillet mignon, brine chicken, cap ribeye and the salmon. The 6oz filet was no more than 2 ounces, I would have been embarrassed to put this tiny steak on a plate if I was the chef. My husbands chicken was way over cooked, he did complain and got it taken off our ticket but when he showed the waitress she could clearly see how dry it was. My steak was in noway a ribeye, it had zero marbling. The salmon wasn’t bad and our baked potatoes were good. We sat here from 7pm-9pm also which was way too long for dinner. We are all disappointed and will not be back.
    The OAK room & barResponded on February 22, 2024
    I apologize for your bad experience at our establishment. I have spoken to the Chef about your experience so these issues do not happen again. I will say that our Cap steak is both the ribeye and the tenderloin that is beautifully marbled when raw and the fat melts once cooked with high heat. That makes the steak tender and flavorful. Also, the 2 hour time frame is the minimum dining time for our coursed out fine dining experience. When prompted by our guests, we can speed service up as we are here for you. Thank you so much, Amanda

    I apologize for your experience in Oak room. For a larger group, the noise level was on par of what we anticipate for the size. Had I known any of my guests had an issue with the level, it would have been addressed. I will let the kitchen know of your feedback on the presentation of the food and will have a training session with everyone of my Front of House employees about not being attentive enough. Our service is a slower service due to being coursed out. I thank you for your visit and hope for your return. Amanda

    Oak room was such a let down. 0/10 don't recommend. Ambiance was beautiful. Food was 0/10. We went for our 10 year anniversary, but unfortunately my husband had to send his food back and my scallops didn't have a sear on them and were $65 for 4 scallops and Cajun risotto. We will not be returning or recommending this restaurant to anyone. $175+ for 2 entrees and a split Caesar salad.

    The decor is nice, however the chairs at the table are wobbly. The cocktails were good. We did have to wait for our waitress to have manager unlock wine cellar to get our requested wine, this took 20 minutes or more. Our waitress Amanda was very polite, yet was soft spoken in a noisy atmosphere. There seems to be an opportunity for training. The steak was fine, nothing outstanding compared to price versus quality issue. Maybe I am being too picky, however, if you are portraying yourself as an upscale location, then really examine all aspects of your operation.
