    This restaurant consistently delivers and has an easy ambience and a great bar . I had my usual martini and my guest, a mocktail . Appetizers were the wonderful deviled eggs( yum) and the grilled artichoke ( which I have Every time I come) , we tried a new salad this time - which was the best, hands down with little strips of tortillas, a perfect blend of ingredients. We ended with the wagyu steak which came with a stuffed potato which had alittle horseradish in it - the way to my heart! 💜. I can’t wait to return in a few weeks .

    Sat outside on a beautiful night and the ambiance was great. I made the mistake of ordering the brick chicken. It wasn’t very good. Next time I’ll order steak.

    Chardonnay by the glass is expensive $20 or $40 no middle ground. Oaked or unoaked. Our waiter was somewhat dismissive after we questioned the cost of the wine as he explained it cost most to oak wine...please. The atmosphere is very nice and food was delicious and appropriately priced.

    Visually striking and posh. Exceptional menu classics are accompanied by creative contemporary offerings. The 'Cellar' setting upstairs is striking and offers a smooth vibe with 1/2 the persons per square foot and noise. Polished professional staff.

    Best Halibut ever!!! I truly enjoyed every bite of it. Husband also said Steak and Frites were very good. Wine is a bit pricy but nice selection. Great atmosphere and fun bar area. The lemon ricotta cake is worth saving room for. All in all, a very nice place, atmosphere and tasty food. Nice menu with many options.

    It was a good dining experience. When we arrived the hosts could not find my reservation. Since the restaurant was not crowded, seating us was not a problem and I was given 2x points for the slight inconvenience. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Good vibe. I order the costa masa salad with chicken. So good and perfect for a light lunch. My friend had the burger, which she found underwhelming. Otherwise, nice place and decent menu. This was my 2nd time dining and will return.

    This was my second time dining here, snd first for brunch. I enjoyed everything we ordered ( deviled eggs, smoked gouda grits ( my favorite) tuna tostadas, quiche and fish tacos). The service was great and dishes were cleared promptly, nothing lingered. I love the decor and the noise level is lively but you can still have a conversation.

    Started out lovely at the bar downstairs with a glass of wine but then The table we sat at for brunch should not have been placed where it was. It was so tight against both tables on either side. Very uncomfortable. Couldn’t move at all. Also I ordered the simple egg dish and the bacon wasn’t cooked and VERY fatty and the toast was dry and hard. No butter or condiments we’re available for the toast. Fortunately the rest of my party, that I was treating to Easter brunch enjoyed their meals.

    Our experience yesterday was phenomenal. It was our first time. Our server was GREAT... She answered all our questions and provided us with some great recommendations. She created a welcoming atmosphere that should be implemented throughout the food district. I will frequently visit this restaurant during my tenure in Chicago and tell everyone I know about the outstanding establishment. See you soon. Well done, team. Johnny

    Oakville’s brunch was so good. And my waitress Emily was absolutely amazing. She had excellent recommendations for food and cocktails and she was so patient while we tried to narrow down what we wanted to eat because everything sounded so good. I will definitely be back again, more than once. Especially for that delicious cinnamon roll.

    We both ordered steaks, and they were cold while the potatoes were piping hot. It was odd for both steaks to have a temperature issue. We did not say anything because there was a concern that the meat would come back well done.

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Oakville Grill and I must say, it exceeded all expectations. Every dish we sampled was nothing short of delicious, but what truly stood out to me were the Hamachi Crudo and the Wagyu Hangar Steak with the horseradish twice baked potato – absolute perfection! Our server Tim was not only warm and efficient but also expertly coordinated with the kitchen, ensuring each course was timed perfectly. Working in tandem with the sommelier, they selected a divine bottle of Pinot Noir that perfectly complemented our meal. While the service was outstanding, the real star of the show was the dessert. The Peanut Butter Pie is an absolute must-try, leaving us craving more with every bite. A special thank you to our server Tim, the sommelier, and to the GM Kevin for creating such a wonderful evening. Oakville Grill will definitely be at the top of my list for future dining experiences.

    We met for dinner with friends after sitting a play on a Sunday. The restaurant was very cold and it was cold outside. I saw a few men seated in the bar booths get up and put on their coats. We ate dinner with our coats on. Ask the server to kindly ask the manager to up the heat. It did go up a bit briefly. The food was fine. The drinks were expensive and fine. The service was very good. Our waitress was very responsive.
