So, my wife and I venture to Oak Oven on the anniversary of our moving to Harahan, when we 1st experienced their cuisine. We order our wine and our meals (mine was a shrimp and crabmeat spicy pasts dish) and when our orders arrived I...examined my bowl ($27.00 price tag) and there were 5 shrimp and a scattering of lump crabmeat, the majority of the meal penne pasta. I called the server over and informed her i was not pleased by the amount of seafood administered. The manager approached and asked what the problem was. I reinterated the shrimp count and the poor sampling of crabmeat and his initial response was "Well how many shrimp do you think you deserve?" At that point I told him our conversation was over and to please leave me alone. And repeated my request. 5 times. He finally left, and not 45 seconds later returned and attempted to engage in conversation AGAIN. When I ordered him (I was angered by this point) to go away once and for all he replied "Well I did my job and tried to satisfy your complaint but you're to ignorant to realize that". I bit my tongue, waited for my wife to finish her meal (I wasn't going to touch another bite of mine) paid my bill (nothing comp'ed I paid full price) and left. I will NEVER return to that restaurant. EVER.More

Great place to eat. I wish I was able to come here more often, but alas, I am not. My wife suggested coming here because we had not been in over a year. Really good food (I got the veal). I highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent pasta dishes, freshly made. You can taste the difference. A real delight. The staff is friendly and the prices are very reasonable.

So I had such a yummy, terrific experience during Jazz Fest that I thought I’d send my local friend some Oak Oven deliciousness tonight while she was recovering from surgery. I live in Florida so I ordered a delivery service... I DO NOT recommend Uber...Eats...in fact after tonight, I may cancel my Uber account😡 However, Michael at Oak Oven came to the rescue and made the delivery happen!!! What customer service❤️❤️❤️ Thank You sooo much!More

This establishment has been in Harahan for many years. The contemporary Italian food is prepared very well. Unfortunately, the serving sizes are almost laughable, compared to other similar New Orleans eateries.

I had the veal parmesean and my wife had the chicken picatta. They were both excellent. We had not been here in years. My wife was looking to go back and we happened to be in the area. Would definetely recommend and return.

Wow is all I have to say! I live 3 blocks from this place and have never been here until today! Now I know why the parking lot is always crowded! Our server Alicia was super attentive and friendly and the food was excellent! The...marinara sauce was probably the best I have ever eaten! We will certainly be regulars here from now on!More

This is one of the best Italian restaurants in the New Orleans Metro area. It is the best in Harahan. One dish is better than the next. We dine there at least once a week.

Six of us for dinner. Everything was delish. No pizza. The salads were fresh. There was a Caesar,Parmigiano, and Spinach salads that were a terrific way to start the meal. We had Veal Piccata, several orders of Beccafico, and Paneed Veal. Everyone was a member...of the clean plate club and wanting more. These were plate licking entree's. Our service was extra special because of our server Mike. Mike was passionate about every selection on the menu. He was always on-the-spot and never over-bearing or intrusive. Wow, Oak Oven is lucky to have such an ambassador waiting table for them.More

This is a great Italian restaurant. Be sure to try the homemade pasta. We recommend reservations for busy weekends. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend them for catering orders. Our order was incorrect and when I had 25 folks at my home for about baby shower, the...order was only enough for about 8. They relunctantly made more food, complaining that the extra chicken used for our order would cause them a problem filling restaurant irders.More

This was our first visit and definitely won’t be our last. The atmosphere was elegant and comfortable, service- one of the best, and the food -extremely fresh and tasty. We all ordered different dishes and one was better than the next. The margherita pizza and...crawfish ravioli were just delicious. Our waiter, Jarod, was attentive, polite and never missed a beat. My new favorite place. It’s a must try, great go to place for locals and definitely worth the drive for others.More

A friend and I visited here for the first time, I have the paneed veal with homemade Alfredo and asparagus... the veal was excellent and the homemade fettuccini was delicious! Very fresh. My friend had a gulf fish stuffed with crabmeat over angelhair pasta which...was amazing as well! I wanted bread pudding but didn’t have room! Will be back.More
