This restaurant is a convenient place to eat when attending an event in the Macy's store. The food is not as tasty as it once was, but there is a good choice of dishes.

This restaurant has been around since 1947, on the 12th floor of ur beloved former Dayton's department store, now Macy's. The warm dark woodwork and soft lighting provide lovely ambiance and if you're lucky enough to sit near the fireplace, that's the gorgeous focal point of the room. I hadn't been here in years but it's still wonderful. It was... More

I've never written a review before, but we had such terrible service the evening of 3/22/16 that I feel compelled to let others know. I brought my friend here to celebrate her birthday and I was so embarrassed by the way this waitress completely ignored us. We were seated by a nice host, then sat. It took the waitress over...

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

For those who remember that going to Macy's in the long ago was a big deal, particularly the restaurant, This restaurant is a big part of holding true to the old days without being stodgy. Service, from reception to paying the bill was very good. Food was also very good. The popovers are to die for.
