Went here with a group of people for brunch. It was great. Everyone enjoyed the food and we had good service. Nice place to go.

The last time we went to the Oakwood, it was excellent, so we expected more of the same this time. Unfortunately it was slightly disappointing this time around. The salad, a fruit and nut tossed salad which is an upgrade, was tasty but tiny. The 'loaded' baked potato wasn't. Actually it was quite dry. The chicken parmesan was good, but... More

We went to the Oakwood Café for Mother's Day dinner. We have been several times before and had good service and delicious food. Not so on this occasion. We ordered prime rib that had been sliced and grilled like a steak.It tasted like charcoal and was over cooked. The baked potato had a big black spot in the middle, which... More

A group of four of us had lunch together at the Oakwood recently. The space is typical, predictable, and comfortable. It's not pretentious, and doesn't pretend to be anything it is not. Each time that I have been to the Oakwood, the food has been the same. It is consistently good. It is not amazing, incredible, or memorable - but... More

Myself and 3 colleagues went to the Oakwood Cafe for lunch. We arrived there and were seated very quickly. The server (do not remember her name) was a seasoned veteran who made the whole experience even better. She was competent, funny, and attended to our every request. We all decided to go for their delicious burger platters, everyone choosing a... More

Hadn't been to the Oakwood for a while, so I was really pleased when my girlfriend suggested we meet there for early lunch or late breakfast. It was 10:30 a.m., and it turned out that you can order a variety of full breakfast options until 3:00 p.m. Imagine that! Full breakfast on a regular week day as late as that!... More

In my last review, I said that the Oakwood has gone downhill, but I recently revisited the restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. It's back to it's old standards with a little up-class additions. I decided to go Ukranian and started with the borscht. It was delicious with just the right amount of sweetness and lots of grated beets. Following this,... More

I find the place to very inconsistent, some days the food can look and taste good but on others it looks like they don't care. I've been here when it was really busy and sometimes when really slow. Baffled by how the food is never the same twice, for the good way. Fries one day are soggy or limp (can... More
