Had dinner with friends at Macy's Oak Grill before seeing the "Christmas Carol" at the Guthrie. We all love the popovers, which were done to perfection, plus we ordered extras for a small fee. The chicken and meatloaf were our favorites. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful in making our choices. It was a Wednesday evening at 5 pm... More

Oak Grill is typically a favorite place of ours to eat downtown but this last visit was a bit disappointing. The food is consistently good but the service was less than stellar. That being said, it was very busy but even taking that into consideration I can't give the service anything but a poor rating. Our first disappointment started with... More

Wow, this is a gem of a restaurant on the 12th floor of Macy's downtown Minneapolis. The prices are VERY reasonable, the food absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was so festive with the Christmas decorated fireplace and trees throughout the rooms. I highly recommend the chicken pot pie, the out of this world popovers and the caramel bread pudding. We... More

Love Popovers? I do, and here you will find the best! They bring them when you get there, and they are always fresh, warm and delicious! The restaurant is cozy but elegant, yet we feel totally at ease in very casual clothes at lunch. A great place for a special event, too, but nice for a lunch treat. I like... More

Macy's Oak Grill in downtown Minneapolis has retained it ambience and elegance over the years. Popovers are great. The service and food very good as well.

The Oak Grill in Macy's is the definition of class. Great food and attentive service. Book ahead to get a table near the fire place to really feel the charm.

The atmosphere is so nice with cloth tablecloths. And the food is delicious. We ordered almond-crusted walleye which came with mashed potatoes and fresh vegetable. The dinner also comes with popovers! Yum! For dessert we shared the cheesecake with brandied blueberries. The two of us couldn't finish it. The service was fantastic! I can't wait to eat here again when... More

The restaurant was a surprise. This is the first time I have stayed in the Nicollet shopping area and when looking at restaurant.com we saw that they had certificates for the Oak Grill.
