We went to Oak for dinner the first time last week and we overall disappointed. The service was outstanding, but the food was quite so-so. While the menu was quite good and varied, the dishes we had were mediocre.

The food is amazing - there is no doubting that. But our waiter was a surly rude man who seemed like he wanted to be anywhere but at work. He basically served all our food and drinks at the same time - no pacing, no...More
