One of The Oakroom's Favourite Reviews What's This?
Such relaxed, homely service – something I don’t see often in most bars and restaurants. Really impressed and will definitely be back!
The food was amazing, we had breads, the cheese trio and olives with feta. The cheese plate was Deliscious with persimmon to accompany. The olives and feta went extremely well with the cheeses.
The service was incredible. Quick to help and knew the answers to all our questions about the menu.
We recieved complimentary chocolates to finish off which I would highly recommend.
I will be coming back very soon.
Also generous & warm was the service. Because although the small plates were a little slow to arrive… the maitre d’ was attentive & kept us informed. He also followed up our meals with a couple of complimentary chocolate truffles (one whiskey – yum! and another limoncello).
Regarding the food: My watermelon with mint, ricotta & rocket with balsamic glaze was refreshing – and had a lovely clashing of sweet and sour and creamy and salady.
The smoked fish remoulade & lemon that came with garlic toasts, was beautifully moreish, with a lovely texture.
A Corona w slice of lemon topped off the summery autumn lunch. It was a lovely relaxed social place where I’d definitely be keen to lounge (and eat) (and drink) for hours!
[20 July 2012 **] Returned to give this place another chance after seeing that they now have a limited lunch menu. Not that impressed with my salad, and two colleagues ordered seafood chowder only to be told a few minutes later that the chowder was not yet ready (we were eating after 1pm).
with is high ceilings and long bar this venue has placed itself well ready for high volumes of cocktail drinkers looking for a wind down. Then… There is outside, overlooking Vic park its is open ensuring all around day time sun, and with the patio heaters primed for the darkers hours will easily slide into a cozy evening escape come the darker months.
As far as service goes, sometime this aspect is over analysed, you cant go wrong with a smile, friendly chat and attentive knowledge of the customer experience… And thats what you get here. Spot on.
so far so good for this new kid on the block, the foundations are set…
