Great experience with the girls for brunch. Miranda was our server and she was very prompt and knowledgeable.

This was my fourth experience eating here, and I am not quite sure what happened on this trip, but it was far below the typical excellent experience. Aside from two/four in our party being served their food 15 minutes after the others (food was lost according to server) my meal was not good, sadly. I ordered their signature dish of short ribs and there was more fat than ribs. I had actually asked the server if they were fatty prior to ordering and he assured me they were not. For $40, I would have expected more. Others thought their meals were just ok. This was a disappointing experience overall, but am willing to try again based on the excellent experiences in the past.

A go-to place for charcuterie in the metro Detroit area. They make much of it themselves and it is nicely presented.
The wine prices are retail plus a $7 corkage fee per person.

Disappointing! You have the price of the bottles of wine on the menu but when comes the check you have to pay more and a dinning fee of 7 dollars for the bottle! We took the pasta plates and the gnocchi, nothing inside the plate for the price! I would not recommend this restaurant anymore!

We had high hopes for Toasted Oak after reading other reviews, but it was a little bit of a let down when it came to the quality of our entrees, especially for the price.

We chose a crudo as an appetizer which happened to be done with scallops that day. This dish was fantastic! Really good flavours and well prepared.

However, we both ordered steak frites and these were a let down. Perhaps we shouldn't have gone with this choice, but the reviews of this dish in particular seemed positive. We both ordered medium rare, and the steak was a bit more on the rare side. Not enough to send back or make a fuss over (I don't mind it this way, so I traded the more done parts with my wife's more rare parts). The steak wasn't very well seasoned, and the description of it being served with a jus was not really accurate. More seasoning and possibly a nice chunk of some seasoned butter would have helped. It wasn't bad, but I make better steaks than this at home.

The frites part of the steak frites were really just french fries, and not thin and crispy enough to be what I'd consider a traditional frite. They were tasty, just nothing special. For the price of the entree, I just wasn't impressed. Again, it wasn't bad, it just wasn't anything special.

I will say, the service was excellent. We picked a Bordeaux which wasn't available, so the server waived the fee to drink the bottle at the restaurant - a nice touch.

Dessert was a caramel cream type dessert, also very tasty.

Overall I think I'd go back, and try something different and hope this was just an off night. The restaurant has the potential to be much better than it was!

We had a party of four who ordered duck, short ribs, and two types of pasta. The beet salad was good. The entres were just fair. Charging for bread, and a small portion at that, is just unAmerican.

They were out of Bloody Mary mix. Waitress did comp us our first mimosa and gave us a “free” top off. Food was very heavy but the menu had a nice selection of breakfast and lunch options for brunch. Food service was a bit slow. I might give it another try but not dying to go back.

Went in on a last minute, late (for me) night decision. Had to make a reservation an hour away, so we sat at the bar and had a drink. Service, from beginning to end, was top notch. Food for all three of us was amazing. While the ambiance screams "fancy", we felt very comfortable in jeans and sweaters. Very cool place.

The service was great and all the food was really tasty. Our objection is regarding the portion sizes. The entrees were ridiculously small and these were meant to be full sized entrees NOT small plates. I am not a fan of giant over-sized portions but these were really stingy. We would hesitate to go back because of this. Also, when we asked for bread, we were told it was an appetizer so we paid extra for the bread. That was a first.

I have eaten at Toasted Oak many times for lunch and dinner; this was my first time going for Saturday brunch. The service was quite slow despite not being very busy. When the food did arrive the Eggs Benedict was on toast that was nearly impossible to cut through and the dish was quite dried out. My parents both ordered this and we were celebrating my mom's birthday. I felt bad they had such an experience. My meal, the Stratta, was dense, flavorless bread essentially. My husband ordered the chicken sandwich which he said was good, and the breakfast potatoes were also good. The waiter also seemed so unsure and nervous about how to handle food allergies that when he did come back with an answer my kids (who both are allergic to peanuts, tree nuts and sesame) were reluctant to order anything. I think it will be a while before any of us return to Toasted Oak for anything more than a glass of wine.

Nothing special. Just meh. We went to toasted Oak for chicken and waffles which they are known for. Guess what? Unbelievably, chicken and waffles is no longer on the menu. Why? Because they couldn't keep up with The demand. What incredibly stupid management. Here's the most popular dish and rather than accommodate demand they take it off the menu. Maybe they are run by the government. ☹️if you want great chicken and waffles go to Root in White Lake. Better restaurant and chef owned 😄

Our food was delicious. My guest has both dairy and gluten allergies so, the chef had to prepare everything a little different than normal. The mussels were done in a broth (no butter) and were awesome. The steak was done perfectly . I don't have allergies so I ordered some sort of cauliflower entree which was kind of like a steak with a Moroccan sauce, very good.

I usually love this restaurant. This trip my sandwich was just ok (may just be me though). My business associate picked all the pepperoni off his flat bread because he didn't like the taste & cut. Service was not great. Rarely saw our waitress other than when she took our order, delivered our food and dropped the check.

I'm hoping it was just a fluke. Love the ambiance of the place.

Our overall experience was unpleasant.
The table setting was horrible. I was half sitting in the alley and my chair was getting bumped each time someone was walking by. We were sitting next to another table (like 5 inches) and had zero privacy.
The air conditioning was running full blast. We were freezing and I had to wear a cap to protect my head from the cold air flow.
My food was served cold...
The place was extremely noisy. We could barely hear each of other talking.
The atmosphere and the setting resembled more of a bar than a high scale restaurant.
Very disappointing...

The food was overall good, though a bit overpriced. We noticed the bread we were given (and told it was from Zingerman's and was being tested, was a bit overbaked and hard on the outside. The wine and the service were topnotch. Esepecially the service, we were extremely pleased with our server. Our biggest complaint was that it was cold in the restaurant. We appreciated our wine being chilled, but ourselves not so much.

I have been there a few times for a few years- it continues to go down hill in my opinion- we thought we would give it one more shot based on location etc.
We had a 7 pm reservation through open table- got our errands done early so went at 6.
they sat us near the bar - very noisy and a traffic through way for many. When asked for another table right as we sat - we were told we need to take a 2 top as there were many reservations and we could not move.


During dinner there were 6 open 4 tops available - disappointed

then it took about 10 min to get any attention - as many wait staff passed by.


in re to food- surprised -
We both ordered the Steak Frite's- in the past the french fries were true to french bistro cuisine- small and long and thin. These were your regular burger fries. it also took over 3/4 of the plate.
our steak was pre- Cut ( surprised as well ) it was a hanger steak we believe- that was not clear or we missed that part. Mine was cooked perfect- my husbands over cooked- we both ordered medium.

We missed the bread that used to come in the can - quirky but fun.

Also could not believe there was a 7 dollar up charge to the wine- the prices listed did not include it. I understand the up charge - but to not be upfront with that in the pricing was odd.
to add insult to injury - i was sent an email from open table that i did not honor my reservations- i responded that we just came early which i had advised the inexperienced hostess.

Our Waiter was Andre i believe was terrific - he just needs to work somewhere else.

thanks and hope the feedback helps

I have been here for brunch twice and both times it did not disappoint. I have had five different items on the menu and ALL of them I would get again!! The Torta is amazing. The cinnamon roll is a must try. The lemon ricotta pancakes are worth trying! The brunch poutine is something I would order over and over again. I might ask for an extra poached egg on the poutine but that is just a personal preference. The mimosa's are worth having with Brunch!!

Excellent place to have a nice meal, good conversation, special occasion. They have accommodated for me large groups as well as two for quiet dining and it has always worked out well. Always good to get a reservation though as it is a spot where a lot of business guests dine especially during the week. Favorite item - grilled Caesar salad is wonderful.
