You'd never expect Toasted Oak to be attached to a hotel. After all, hotel food isn't usually top of my list. Toasted Oak is a nice surprise. The menu is limited, as expected, with farm to table. Frankly, I'd rather have good options than more options. We started with a generous charcuterie plate (watch out for the jalapeño cheese!) Wine selections were also good - just walk into the front of the market and choose a bottle or two. Beef short ribs were a big hit, generous sized portions and delicious. Yes, we'd go back.

I’ve been here many times and this was the first time we had a bad experience. The food took over an hour to get to us and then it arrived cold. The service was not great. There were a few other things that happened too. The worst part was I sent the manager a email telling her about our experience and she said a computer generated email saying that she is sorry we did have a good experience.

Great service including pouring the wine. Great presentation of the dishes ordered. The steak was a little more done than desired but great taste and cut like butter. Made a positive impression on my lead. Terrible sound level - no sound absorbing materials used. All had to speak very loudly and lean in closely.

The service was amazing as always, and the food was even better! I had the roasted butternut squash with lentils. and it was hands-down the best butternut squash dish I have ever had. In fact, the dish was so good that I could have licked the plate clean. I wish this were a staple item in their menu, but I cannot wait to go again and see what’s next!

For reference, I am not vegan or vegetarian, but those who are can take comfort in a meal that is up to the highest standards for quality and taste with this one!

The best thing was the free cornbread and water. I understand that pork belly has fat, but this "crispy pork belly" was fat with an attachment of meat. It came with some cooked green that was impossible to cut with the accompanying butter knife. The blue nose fish special was $42 for a dried out four ounces. It came with another green that was more bitter than week old coffee. Beef short ribs were served with no knife because "most people don't need one".

The atmosphere of the restaurant is unique. It is a market and a bar and a restaurant all in one, so the ambiance is mixed. The food is outstanding! I highly recommend the cheese board starter! Our server was very friendly, but had difficulty splitting the bill and in the end, it was still incorrect. Parking was difficult as the restaurant is located in a hotel and there were other events as well as regular guests at the hotel the evening we dined. The hotel itself is lovely and once inside the restaurant, I forgot we were even in a hotel. They have done a wonderful hob of separating the two. Overall, we had a nice experience. I would recommend.

Wonderful service, selection, and ambiance. A friend and I met for brunch on a Sunday morning and the menu included a lot of classic brunch favorites including a fantastic drink menu. The restaurant was half full, but the lighting and seating made for a very intimate feel. We both ordered coffee and mimosas, both which were delicious. I believe our server said the coffee was a Samoan dark roast. My friend ordered the biscuits and gravy which I was able to try. Our waiter, Xavier (absolute sweetheart), said it was one of the top dishes ordered during brunch and it's understandable as to why. Soft, savory, biscuits with a flavorful gravy. My friend is from the deep south and said the biscuits were second only to her moms. I ordered the Michigan omelet with wheat toast and a said of sausage. The omelet was perfectly done with heaps of fresh, delicious veggies. The toast was, well, toast. The only disappointing part of the meal...was the sausage. Three (four?) dry, hard little meat patties unceremoniously dropped on a side plate. Sides were only $4 so it's not a devastatingly blow to an otherwise great meal. I am planning another trip VERY soon, ready for more.

We met our niece and nephew at the Toasted Oak in Novi on Sunday. It was the first visit for each of us. We ordered fruit bruschetta, sticky buns with cream cheese, and poutine to share. My nephew is originally from Canada and is a connoisseur of poutine. He loved the dish from Toasted Oak! My husband and I also shared the Michigan omelet and it was so tasty.
