Lunch on vacation. Service very slow. Salmon not as fresh as it could have been. Despite it being an historic room, that charm is spoiled by industrial furnishings and lighting. It could be a much more inviting spot.
It’s closed but opentable shows that it’s open. Don’t book here
Even though OpenTable "made a reservation" for me, the restaurant was closed for lunch when we arrived. Very embarrassing and a big error by OpenTable!
A long-standing gem of a dining room tucked away in the St. Francis. Quiet and gracious, with excellent food. What I would call the best of "old" San Francisco with appropriate updates. I am sorry dinner is no longer served there.
The Oak Room is greatly under appreciated. We went the other day for lunch. It was quiet, dignified, and comfortable. The service was impeccable. We asked for specific wine glasses for a fine wine we ordered... they didn't have them handy, but they made a special trip somewhere in the hotel, found the exactly right glasses, and that made the wine service spot-on!
We love the atmosphere, plush leather chairs, cloth napkins, wine decanter. It's not easy to find dinner quality service and atmosphere for lunch. The Oak Room is off the street, on the Lobby Level of the St. Francis Hotel. Easy to find, yet out of the way.
The food was delicious and visually enticing. The Dungeness Crab Chowder, their signature soup, is worth the trip! The salads are large enough as a meal; bright and crisp Romaine Salad, with Chicken. The entres we ordered, fish, and their wonderful Kobe Burger.
We sampled three of the desserts, all worth of great praise, especially the Trio of Creme Brûlée, and the Chocolate Tart with Sechuan Sauce(!).
We lingered a little past the 2pm lunch hours, but the staff was still very pleasant and patient, another sign of great service.
Parking Tip: Union Square Garage is right across the street.
Muy bien lugar pero caro. Se anuncia como $ pero pagamos 65 dólares por persona.
Had lunch there..It was fine..I like to spend money on great food..But $22 for a chopped salad in a soup bowl..$26 for small portion of shrimp pasta..This was the lunch menu, but very small portions..
Our group enjoyed the lunch and service. The food was prepared well and everyone enjoyed the location. I hope to return for more group meetings.
Everything was fine
There was no butter for the rolls, we requested and received a portion of butter. And there were no bagels with the lox. Kind of curious about that... other than that we had a good time. Service was good.
Service in this charming, old San Francisco is consistently outstanding. Menu has a good selection of offerings and the food does not disappoint. Great place to meet friends for a tasty lunch in an atmosphere that is conducive to conversation.
Waitstaff & food excellent. Very courteous & friendly service. Look forward to next visit.
It was a very elegant venue...you can't go wrong with the Westin St. Francis Hotel! The Easter Brunch was moderately priced and was good value for the quality and quantity of buffet selections. Our server, Henry, was very attentive and gave us the idea of coming back for Mother's Day Brunch! We were very happy with our experience at The Oak Room.
Very pleasant ambiance. Lovely oak paneled room. Good food. Good service. Reasonable prices. And, best of all, quiet enough that one can actually hold a conversation. I only wish they were open for dinner.
The ambience and the service is outstanding
Highly overpriced for mediocre food. $6 for a can of Coke!!! The food was very bland, and I’m not a smoker and I don’t salt my food.
The food and service at the Oak Room was spectacular!
Restaurant Week selections were very satisfying and unique
quiet, Christmassy, well-prepared and served. yes, $ but its on Union Square itself in gorgeous hotel decked out for Chrisymas
This was my first time having Lunch at the Oak Room Restaurant. The menu was very nice and we had a great meal.
This lunch was for a special occasion. Perfect spot - classy, quiet and very good food. Service was great.
Went here for Easter Sunday brunch. The selections were very good with salads, seafood, traditional breakfast, omelet station, chicken, salmon and a carvery. We didn't have any of the meats from the carvery but they looked delicious. The place was very family friendly as there were a number of families with children in the place. It's located in the Westin St. Francis Hotel on Union Square. We had been expecting more of a crowd, especially with the tourist season starting up but it was not at all crowded and made for a quiet, pleasant meal. I haven't eaten in this restaurant in years but it was just as good as I remembered. If a tourist wants to have a quiet break and a good meal, I highly recommend this little gem.
THE OAK ROOM DOES NOT SERVE DINNER....ONLY BREAKFAST AND LUNCH. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE RESERVATIONS FOR DINNER AS WE DID AND FIND OUT THE RESTAURANT IS CLOSED FROM MID-AFTERNOON ON UNTIL THE NEXT MORNING!!!!
I am sorry that the Oak Room is planning to discontinue serving dinner. It is a quiet, attractive setting where I can have a good visit without having the conversation drowned out by loud noise. The food is steadily good. Service is fine. I would call it a good place for "gracious dining." None of the descriptions on your list above applies--and I suspect that is why dinner service is ending. Too bad.
Think slllllooooow. And then be prepared to wait. Patiently. Bring a book. And a flashlight. It's dark. And slow.
Like the restaurant that time forgot.
Breakfast is pretty excellent.
I was there the day of the immigrant walk out so the service was horrible! Not a good experience in any way. Food bad, service terrible, wait time over an hour. Management seemed to be clearing tables but had an angry attitude and made the experience even worse.
It was a very busy night in the city with Valentines and a conference was in the city - I was able to get a last minute reservation here, to my surprise it was fantastic, I ordered the short ribs and they we're perfect in every way, so much that I want to come back for that same dish ! Everything was great about this experience.
The service was disorganized and staff perfunctory. There appeared a lack of teamwork and connecting with customers. All staff were busy, but there appeared to be no systems in place for an efficient running of the restaurant. Food was quite good.
We were staying at the Westin and having just fought the Chinese New Year Parade traffic trying to get to the hotel didn't feel like going out. The restaurant is in house and convenient. Despite poor reviews regarding the service and food we found it OK. It wasn't a memorable experience in either a stellar or bad way. Everything in the city is expensive relative to what you can get in more suburban regions and this restaurant is no exception.
Food and ambiance was good. Service was abysmal! Had to wait for the table even though all the tables but 2 were open and we had a reso. Took 20 minutes to get a beverage. We had to ask for items we ordered. Check was delivered before they remembered to bring us dessert we had ordered! We had to point that out, too. Disappointing.
Very relaxing for a wonderful meal. Our server was "on the ball" without being under your nose. My husband and I just went to San Francisco for a get away weekend and I attended a Buddhist conference. Perfect place for relaxing, conference off property, and being in the heart of town.
We were 20 Minutes late for SF Restaurant Week réservation and they refused to serve us,they said the kitchen was closed.
They were not nice or in any way apologetic.
I'm actually relieved we didn't have to go,there was practically no one there and the room looked dated and tired,not fancy
lIke we had planned on.
One of the worst experiences in service I have ever had! It took almost 30 minutes to even be asked what we wanted to drink and longer to even get our ticket after asking for it 3 times
Unfortunately the experience at The Oak Room was lackluster. Apparently much of the wait staffed called off for the evening so there was one server for the entire restaurant. Since we weren't in a hurry, we didn't make a fuss but it was noticeable. More than the service, the food was disappointing. It is basically made up entirely of the standard Westin room service menu that you can get at most Westin's around the country. I would have expected more from what was classified as a fine dining establishment. Just not worth the money.
Food was excellent as well as the service. Ambiance was lacking and several solo diners were seated next to our table even tho the restaurant was almost empty.
Everything Was perfect
Except the Hostess that told us tô return later just because we arrived ten minutes before
Food was great but service was just pathetic specially for New Year's Eve dinner. I don't blame the wait staff since they were spread thin from what we observed. You would think the management would have more wait staff working during such a busy evening.
Elegant n festive NYr eve dinner to bring in 2017!
We went to get a good meal in advance of a play. Okay food, slowish service.
We have been to the Oak Room yearly at Christmas. This year we noticed the amount of variety was much less at the buffet. Those that had the turkey dinner said the stuffing was cold. The wait staff was very good.
