“A local favorite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Very flavorful menu with an emphasis on foods in season. We had a wedding rehearsal dinner here & everyone really enjoyed it. Friendly staff can advise you about menu choices.

“Who are you trying to kid?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

This place is a joke! Is Kalamazoo that ignorant that they think this is a "cool" place? It is horrendous! Poor service, overpriced crap. The "caesar" salad was four large, heated leaves, not tossed romaine. The Margharita pizza had chicken on it.. c'mon idiots! Margharita is vegetarian!!! Seats in the back are subject to loud door slamming by employees and seeing every patron's trip to the bathroom.

What do they make here that isn't imaginative and delicious? The coffee? Nope...that's great too. Man we just love this place.

“Oakwood for consistently excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

We go to Oakwood Bistro for the consistently excellent food. Their Mac n Cheese is not your mommas average MacNCheese. Top shelf. Great soups. Great service all the time.
