    We go to Oakville pretty often and usually sit at the bar. We had planned dinner with friends so we decided to get a table. I've written an earlier review of Oakville and honestly I think they have some of the same challenges they had in the beginning. When the bar is busy, table beverage service suffers. We waited at least 10 minutes for our wine because the sommelier was busy. Why does the som have to serve all the wine? And in the end, the waiter ended up bringing it to the table. Even longer for our next bottle. I drink a lot of water, so I often sat without water and had to keep asking for it. When floor managers are walking around and don't notice empty water glasses, that's an issue. I ordered my salmon rare to medium rare and made sure what that meant to the restaurant. The waiter confirmed it would be red in the middle, which is what I wanted. I got a well done salmon with a very mediocre BBQ sauce, which actually didn't really go with the dish at all. Good notes: The grilled avocado is always amazing and the house salad is delicious, although way too big. It's enough for 4 people. The dressing is delicious. So I will keep going to Oakville, but maybe not for dinner. The apps, salads and pizza really are the best things on the menu. And I really think they need to pay more attention to basic service. Overall the service staff in the dining room is just okay. The bar staff is much more attentive, polished and personable.

    Honestly, we were really disappointed. My fiancé and I’s first Valentine’s Day engaged we were so excited to celebrate at Oakville. We went on Thursday (2/15) but still were excited to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I got the surf and turf valentines menu and the food came out cold and honestly like it was sitting there from yesterday ready to be reheated. My steak was not how I ordered it and the lobster was cold. I am rarely someone to complain about food and I recognize how hard chefs work especially around busy holidays- but for the price point of my meal I was extremely disappointed with the quality. Very bummed that this happened on us celebrating a holiday.

    I’ve been looking forward to trying The Oakville and I’m sad to say it disappointed. The biggest let down was they were out of majority of entrees and the items I did get to try weren’t very tasty. To make matters worse my server/bartender service was not outstanding

    Everything was amazing esp wine list. Somehow we seated in worst table in the restaurant even though I put a note that it’s valentines date night for us. The table was almost front of the kitchen door and we can see who’s goin in and out. I switched chair in same table but I can still feel people keep going in and out behind my back.

    Beautiful restaurant. We had great seats in a booth. The sourdough bread was disappointing and my fiend’s truffle Entree was very small and she was still hungry. Caesar salad was delicious my salmon was yummy! It is a hike up stairs to restroom which is annoying but overall good spot! Would return

    Had a great time! Food was great! Wine was great! The only bummer was we had a reservation, but they didn't have our table ready until about 10-15 minutes after our reservation. We had plans after dinner, which made us late b/c we sat down late. That was the only disappointment, otherwise we had an outstanding experience.

    Brunch and lunch was delicious. The staff was kind, patient, and courteous; a friend of mine and I were catching up after a year of not being in touch. We stayed longer than either of us anticipated but the staff did not complain. They allowed us to order more food and drinks without once mentioning the need for us to move from the table. They did not have to be so considerate and we really appreciated it. I tipped both waiters 25% and hope that showed our gratitude. I recommend The Oakville Grill and Cellar to anyone!

    While our waiter was charming and informed of menu options, it was exceptionally SLOW. Dinner was at least an hour longer than it should have been. Thank goodness we ordered the sourdough bread so we weren't starving before our main dishes FINALLY arrived.

    Lance was a very good Waiter. Loved the ambience. Beautiful restaurant. Wine list way too esoteric for my tastes. We did restaurant week menu and off of the menu. The Branzino was very good, but the portion small for the price. Other restaurants full fish for the same price. Truffle fries good but an after taste on the truffle oil. I tasted it when I got home and I had the fabulous oozie lemon cake. Go figure. Salmon great, did not like the glaze with the grits. Everything else very good.
