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. The restaurant is cozy with a fireplace. The food was decent price, quality and quantity was excellent. Our waitress was friendly and knew how to do her... More

This is a nice place to eat for a shopping break. The atmosphere is super nice, dark paneling with a fireplace. They take reservations and has great food. They are know for their popovers which is served before your meal, coming out hot with butter...YUMO! It's worth it just for the popovers. We both had the mandarin chicken salad and... More

I visited after a trip to Santaland at Macy's. It made for a lovely evening. The food hold up to the Macy's, Field's tradition.

Great holiday tradition. Oak paneled room dates back to 1947. Nice ambience with roaring fireplace and great menu. Wild rice soup and most menu items are outstanding including the pot pie.

They don't take reservations, it's way up on the 12th floor of Macy's, it's downtown so parking is a challenge, but that doesn't deter anyone. Is there an old-school restaurant where everyone can take mom or grandma or both during the holidays? This is it. Good food, they serve beer, wine, and cocktails, and the food is great.

The Oak Grill is located in the upper level (12, I believe) of the Macy's on Nicollet in Minneapolis. Entering this beautiful dining room is a walk into the past of very fine dining. The service was excellent in every respect for our party of four and service dog. The food was simply outstanding beginning with the mouth watering popover.... More

First of all, let me explain that my wife and daughter accidentally discovered Macy's fabulous store on Nicolett Mall in downtown Minneapolis last summer when we were attending the annual meeting of my company (Lifetouch). They have raved about that restaurant ever since. So this year, my wife and I stayed over the day after the meeting ended and explored... More

We were there to celebrate my father-in-law's 80th B-Day. It's one of his favorite restaurants. There was nine of us in our party. Ok, here it goes: delicious fun drinks (hibiscus mojitos.) Our server (Gonzalo) came to apologize that our food would be another 3-5 mintues longer due to the kitchen preparing for a party of 40. Ok, no biggie,... More
