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.
