“Food is consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

Popular business spot. Food is fairly basic - good produce served consistently well. Famous for steaks but all meats on the menu. Dinner is fairly expensive but good options at lunch and steak san's which one of the best in Tokyo.

The bar is not quite what it used to be but still a fun spot and good for people watching.

“Expensive steaks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Its in Tokyo and serves very expensive steaks. They are tasty, but not £300 tasty. Not that I'd know as I had the set menu which was only £80 each. Had wine by the glass also. I really don't worry about cash that much but this place taught me how lower rate tax payers feel every day. A grounding experience!

“Food Prepared to Perfection, Service a Bit Slow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

I ate at the Oak Door in June 2012. It was a Sunday evening and the restaurant was pretty deserted. The space is warm and invited, quite spacious and feeling quite American (it is a hotel restaurant after all). There is a decent bar (with a great Mojito menu for 1700 yen each), and an open counter area where you can see the cook staff.

After some drinks at the bar we were seated at a nice, private booth. Service was rather slow (very slow, as a matter of fact, despite a large number of staff working at the restaurant). However the food was exceptional.

My colleague started off with the pumpkin soup and loved it. I started with some brocollini (technically a side dish but I used it as an appetizer). For the meal we each ordered Kobe beef. This was my first time having Kobe beef and I have to say it is far superior to other meats. It's difficult to explain, but the meat seemed denser than normal beef, but more consistent and more tender through and through. The taste was out of this world. Of course, at over $200 per piece you would come to expect that. Along with our meal we had sides of mashed potatoes, and asparagus - both prepared to perfection.

They use the highest quality meats and produce so every inch of the asparagus was edible and not stringy.

We also had a delicious bottle of Malbec wine (from Argentina) that was just under $200.

All in all, this ended up being the most expensive meal of my life at over $1,600 (US) for two people. Was the experience worth it? I don't know. The food was DEFINITELY of the highest quality. The service was simply mediocre.

“Great location, nice bar, average service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

I cannot comment on the food as I've never ate here. Instead, the Oak Door has been a post-dinner drinks bar in my experience. Getting to the Oak Door, one passes through a nice, breezy bamboo garden area. Inside, there is an open kitchen and at night, the ambiance is classy (read: not family-oriented) and on the dark side. The bar has an extensive cocktail/wine/whiskey selection and I know men enjoy the variety of cigars offered. The bartenders all speak English but the service can be a hit-or-miss depending on the staff/crowd/busy-ness.
