    The French onion soup was the highlight of the evening. It was amazing, super cheesy. Down hill after the appetizer. I had the chicken w/ a polenta cake. It was ok. The chicken was super bland. My friends dinner was disgusting. Her NY Strip had the strangest taste ever. Not sure what it had been cooked in, but it was not good. And her twice baked potato was so off putting. I am thinking it was loaded up w/ truffle oil. So looked forward to trying the new Oak Room. Will not be back.

    Lovely dining area and beautifully plated food. Menu featured some delicious appetizer and entree options that made it difficult to choose. The restaurant offered some nice wine selections by the glass that were reasonably priced. The almond crusted trout was fresh and well prepared, and the Pinot Gris was an excellent pairing. Friendly and helpful staff. Dessert options came up a little short. Disappointed that there was no espresso or cappuccino available.

    Our evening was very enjoyable. Our server Hannah was excellent! I made the mistake of ordering the 4 ounce filet which I know is hard to cook well. However, I would like to suggest that a 6 ounce filet be offered as 8 ounces is way too much for me to eat. Other than that we had such a great dinner at this new restaurant at Oakalawn!!

    Wife’s b-day, staff wished hurry Happy Birthday upon arriving and then it went down hill. Staff shortage,service spotty at best and food just so so. Oak Room has great potential, but need staff and a manager to oversee food prep and service to customers. Food ok, no specials and waiter had no time to work wow it’s customers. Restaurant needs a food manager to oversee preparation and service

    The service was in adequate at best. Our waiter was very slow and did not know anything about the steaks listed on the menu. He was unable to describe the difference in any of the options. I settled on the pork chop which tasted like it had sat under a heat lamp for quite some time. The side item, twice baked potato was terrible. My girlfriend had the chicken breast which was very dry and flavorless. She also had the twice baked potato, hers was awful as well. For the amount this restaurant costs I expect better than dry bland food from a heat lamp.

    Ordered a petite filet, they serve a 6 oz portion as a dinner entree, very small for the price . Server didn’t offer the side dishes that would accompany entree nor was it on the printed menu.

    We were looking forward to a nice meal at The OAK, but we left disappointed. The first shock was that The OAK was overpriced, especially compared to The Bugler, where we ate the previous evening. Our service was slow and inattentive. It wasn't horrible, but it was certainly not what I would expect from a restaurant of this potential caliber. Finally, we were seated at a two-top adjacent to the bathroom. Usually, that would have posed no problem, but your bathrooms are woefully inadequate for the traffic. We listened to patrons all night talking about how they had to wait. Nearly 100% of that was directed at a four-top that was right next to the door to the restrooms. Bless their hearts. I was shocked. I'm asked below whether I would recommend The OAK to a friend. Absolutely not! I would direct them to The Bugler or a local restaurant.

    Party of 8 & able to secure alcove seating which made visiting much more enjoyable. Service very attentive. Cocktails were expertly crafted. Everyone enjoyed their meals. My husband & I shared the ribeye & it was perfect, excellently seasoned. We did order rare & it was more medium rare, but that suits me better anyway. Truffle fries are good, but would like to see more condiment options. Friends had wedge salad & it looked great with fried crawfish on top, plenty for 2 people to share. Nice wine by the glass list. Overall, very enjoyable evening.

    Me and my wife drive from Memphis to celebrate my birthday and we had an excellent time. From the moment we arrived until the time we left, we were treated nothing but kind and eloquent service. We even had an appetizer compliments of the Chef. I had the Lamb pasta and my wife had roasted chicken and both dishes were delectable.

    First, I'd like to say that I know it's hard to find great workers right now and I can't even imagine how difficult it is to run what you would hope to be a 5-star restaurant during these times. The service was phenomenal! Renee was a pleasure and took care of us - 5 STARS for her! The building was clean and felt very high-end, which gives you the impression your food should taste the same. The food: The starter - we ordered the Ahi Tuna Wraps. My husband ate them, but visually the ahi was very large and not appealing. I also think these should come with some type of sauce (personal preference). Dinner - My steak ($35) was cooked perfectly but had no flavor. My twice-baked potato looked very pre-made/frozen. Internally the potato was cold, the slice of cheese on top was not melted thoroughly and the sauce that comes with the steak was cold as well. I personally do not like cold sauces for warm food. My husbands' pork chop ($46) was BEAUTIFUL, but again lacked flavor in the meat and sauce. He also felt the twice-baked potato looked very pre-made or frozen and again his was cold internally, cheese wasn't melted and had too much of a garlic taste. The best part of our dinner food-wise was the creamed spinach because it was the only thing with flavor. My suggestion would be for the chef to taste what he/she is putting out there. The presentation was there, and I applaud him/her on that because we eat with our eyes first, but to have no flavor in food and sauces won't cut it for the prices. I would however pay $10 more than menu price on all main courses to have a fresh potato over what is currently being served. I hope this can come across as constructive from 2 pre-wait staffers of high-end restaurants. I would recommend the Oak room once they dial in their food and flavors. Currently I cannot recommend it for the price point.

    I went with a friend this weekend after getting good reviews from some other friends who had eaten there recently. We were excited for a new, nice place to eat. We ordered the wedge salad which was fine but not enough dressing. My friend ate the crawfish on it and said they were delicious. I don't eat crawfish. That was the highlight of the meal. We had the mushroom/truffle risotto which didn't taste much like mushroom or truffle and was undercooked. We both ordered the small filet med-rare. These were paired with a small twice baked potato that had a slab of cheese across the top of it and green beans with absolutely no flavor at all. Steak was very thin and while very tender again, no flavor. The bread and butter were good and we had a nice bottle of wine. Our meal was over $200 with tip. Our waiter was fine but not great. I didn't feel it was anywhere near worth the price. I will probably return as hopefully it was just an off night.

    Service was sub-par at best. Waitress was very curt and instead of apologizing for being out of a wine we selected just said “I just work here.” My husband ordered his steak blue rare and it came out medium at best. He’s used to sending steaks back but the manager of the restaurant told him “this is the best we can do.” Extremely unprofessional. We went to the Bugler the night before and had a wonderful experience. The Bugler will continue to get our business. We won’t be back to The OAK Room.
