Oak Steakhouse- Alexandria
Great food, great service.
Such a warm and welcoming staff who handled a food allergy incredibly well too
Nice to return to find Oak Steakhouse as spectacular as it was when no one needed to wear a mask. The restaurant has taken every precaution in service, spacing of tables, etc. While many of my regular servers were no longer at the restaurant, Mike was an incredible server and went above and beyond to make our evening truly special. This is still my favorite steak restaurant in the DMV, and it never disappoints. Make your reservation today or just carry out to keep this jewel of a restaurant alive and well.
Lee was by far the best waiter we’ve had! We will definitely be back 😍
The food is wonderful, steak prepared perfectly and the Brussels sprouts were delicious! Our waitress was spot on attentive! We will return. Definitely a special occasion restaurant!
There were 4 of us celebrating a birthday on a week night. It rained that day so we dined inside. It was a top notch experience and the birthday girl was very happy with the selection of place. The food was delicious! We shared the ceviche and short rib for appetizers. For main course we all had a variety of steak cuts and the halibut. Let's just say there were no leftovers. We finished with the sundae and the birthday candle it came with was a nice touch. Will definitely be back again!
We had a great dinner and great service! We will be back.
One of the few places still open and doing a decent job operating under the current circumstances.
Best steak in the DC metro area!
The restaurant was beautiful. I took my husband for a special birthday dinner. We had a great time. The service was impeccable and so was the ambience with dimly lit modern lanterns. We had the Australian Wagu steak. Pricing at $160, it was well worth it. Perfectly cooked medium, melt in your mouth tender. The hot rolls were also very special with flaky salt and butter. We also order the double fried potatoes, eggplant, and Mac and cheese. The sides were less then underwhelming. The potatoes were undercooked and the Mac and cheese was inedible. I would definitely come back but stick to the drinks steak and salad.
Sad to say but Oak was a big disappointment. We've eaten there before - pre-covid - and it was great! Saturday night at a steakhouse is a big deal but the meat was tough and the only taste was pepper - no meat taste just pepper. We know it's hard for restaurants during this time but some like Bastille are going a great job. Oak, isn't and we won't be going back.
Beginning to end great night. The ladies at the front were wonderfully conversational and set us up for success. Kaitlyn (sp?) was equally as wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed. The filet and fried chicken were delightful. Not a single issue throughout.
We stoped in for a drink and a few appetizers. We starred with the ceviche, what a burst of flavor, the citrus and heat awoke the palate without overwhelming the seafood. We followed it with the crab cake and short rib with mash and garlic scapes, both were wonderful. We have always had a great experience at the Oak and can’t wait for our next visit.
The food, service and overall experience was excellent. Thank you for making our anniversary dinner special! We really appreciate it, and we’ll be back soon!
Took my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday and everything was absolutely wonderful. We have lived in the area for a little over a year and feel this is the best dinner we’ve had dining out yet! Paris was our waitress and she was absolutely lovely. We mentioned how we like to take our dinners slow and have drinks at certain meal intervals, etc. and she timed everything perfectly for us. We received a free glass of champagne for the celebration, our meals were cooked perfectly, and everything was so delicious! We had a very pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend!
Great place for dinner. The outside dining was excellent.
We have been to this restaurant numerous times and it's always great.
The service and food were amazing. I cannot eat gluten, and the staff made sure my food was properly prepared and that there would be no cross-contamination. Excellent in general, but also great for those with food allergies!
We ventured out for our joint birthday + anniversary celebration after 4months of self isolating. Oak did a superb job of having tables / seating at least 6ft apart. Staff wore masks and gloves. I felt very comfortable with their level of detail and efforts to protect diners and staff during this new normal. Beyond that, the food was excellent and they made our special outing eventful. Thank you Oak!
Steak and drinks were fantastic. Service was great.
Oak has done a great job during these tough times to make patrons feel comfortable coming in and having a steak dinner. They have not only outdoor seating but have efficiently spaced the interior tables to account for having a full restaurant and still adhering to social distance. The menu was excellent with all dishes cooked perfect; staff were excellent, professional, and personable even while wearing face masks. Definitely worth paying a visit!
Everything was amazing! I’ll definitely be back!
This was our second visit and it was equally good as our first. Our server (Lee) was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and charming. Our steaks were perfectly cooked and the sides and dessert were wonderful as well. Would highly recommend for a special occasion, but it is pricey. Sometimes it's worth the price!
Thank you so much for returning and the 5 star review. I'm so glad you enjoyed Lee's service and the steaks. See you next time. Dom
Excellent service. The booths in the bar are in a steel and glass environment, not in the typical dark wood tone. But they are comfy. And food and service are great. Also, here you get to try Wagyu beef (A5), which is quite an experience. If you try it: It comes covered with sauce. The sauce is tasty, but if you order it only in order to an idea of the taste of the meat itself, you might want to ask for it on side.
Excellent service and outstanding food!
Thank you for the 5 stars and kind words. We hope to see you again. Dom
Very nice evening! Glad to see so many of the staff returning.
Hi, Thank you for being a regular and the 5 star review, and yes, we are very lucky that our team has stuck it out with us during these most challenging times. See you soon, Dom
There are quite a few good restaurants in Old Town and a wide selection of cuisines. Oak happens to be my favorite. Hands down, I’d say it’s the best. Here’s why:
1. The food is terrific and fresh
2. The staff pays attention to details and they treat you like your patronage means something - because it does
3. The atmosphere is nice and the place is super clean
Yes, it’s a bit pricey, but I’d rather drop a $100 for a perfectly cooked meal with all the fixings than $75 somewhere else that’s just ok.
Keep up the great work!!! I will be back!
Keep up the good work!!’ I will be back!
If this place was on King Street you wouldn’t be able to get a table. It’s well worth the 10 minute walk.
This was our first attempt at dining out since the COVID-19 pandemic, so we were a bit apprehensive. We did have the opportunity to sit outside, so I was glad about that. The wait staff were very professional, following all necessary guidlelines and minimizing time at the table. The food was phenomenal, steal (filet mignon) was cooked perfectly and was so tender it barely needed a knife. The fried baked potao and roasted brussel sprouts were also delicious. I am happy to see Oak Steakhouse back and will likely return again for a special occasion.
Excellent evening we felt very safe and service and meals were perfect
This reliably outstanding restaurant had the added plus of being pleasantly quiet due to seating restrictions. The service was smooth and well paced. We had an excellent anniversary celebration in terms of food, service and ambiance.
They take your temp before seating you. I loath this invasion of my privacy, but I also want a steak in steakhouse. The menu choices are few, which is understandable - restaurants are hit hard by the Chinese virus...so, no raw bar and out of many items like spinach (for real). Don’t look at on-line menus and expect that when you arrive.
The service & steaks are awesome! No complaints.
The noise level is obnoxiously loud.
In reality...it’s the only steakhouse in Old Town.
Best steaks in DMV! Superior service!
Awesome, great service!
Great atmosphere, food and service! Definitely worth it!
It’s a little louder sitting outside because there’s a fair amount of traffic going by (not awful, though). Otherwise, this was a really wonderful experience. Perfectly cooked steak, knowledgeable and helpful staff, excellent side choices. We will definitely be back!
Excellent service and meal. A little pricey but it’s the only steakhouse in town so that’s their game
The one thing that tells me it was a great experience is that right after I leave I cant wait to get back. Overall, very good service, excellent food and a great wine recommendation. And a really nice interior and layout too!
As usual, the food was great. Oak has done a great job re-opening since the pandemic. Looking forward to going back.
Wonderful cocktails and delicious food! My husband and I enjoyed ourselves.
