A very eclectic menu, but everything tasted superb. A party of two adult and two teenagers, we enjoyed a fabulous meal. I hate kale, BUT the warm kale salad was great. The ribs were small, but the best I have ever tasted and the rigatoni was delicious. I have a cheese allergy, but they worked around that and still everything... More

Another nice stop on 4th avenue. You might be thrown off-balance by their different menu, but stay calm, it's just that everything is better when it is shared. Analytic and organized people expect to see appetizers and entrees clearly segregated, but here, there's just this one list which at first seems to be sorted by price, but it is not.... More

If you don't like to share, stay away, as this place clearly advertises on its menu that all dishes are meant to be shared So my wife, brother-in-law, his wife, and I gamely chose to make this a fun, as well as an appetizing, evening. For starters, we shared the beet and arugula salad, and the warm kale and brussel... More

I have been to this resturaunt four times and each time has been an excellent experience. The burgers here are delicious and the option to order it rare to well is a big plus. The cosy log cabin feel with the fireplace makes this a great place to take a date.

My partner and I went for dinner on Saturday night to celebrate her birthday. We each had specialty cocktail; both were excellent. We then shared 4 dishes: warm kale salad/seared tuna/roast duck breast and chestnut ravioli(?), and Salt Spring Island mussels. The duck and pasta were to die for, and the kale salad was almost as good. The other two... More

I had my first oakwood experience last summer. It was for brunch and I was more impressed by the fennel salad side dish than the actual main itself - the eggs Benedict. It wasn't great and I normally don't believe in giving restaurants a second try but for some reason I did go back and I'm so glad did. 2... More
