I just wanted to share my first experience at The Oak Room on Drake Street! My girlfriends and I were looking for a place to have a nice lunch to finish off a fantastic weekend celebrating our girlfriends 40th Birthday Weekend. The Viaduct was too busy due to the Iron Man and we didn't want to have to scramble for a reservation or service so decided to try out La Zeppa near Victoria Park. Not that I thought that La Zeppa was the place to go, but as a last minute option, it was a start. When we got there, the staff told us that they weren't open and that they'd be ready for us at 1pm... It was 12.45pm! You'd have thort that they'd have just said for us to grab a drink and try and keep us there... Obviously not! I then suggested to m friends that we go down the road a bit as I recalled there being a pub on the corner. On our way down to the pub, we stumbled across The Oak Room. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with a friendly smile and the Duty Manager went out of her way to make us feel super special. Such a contrast to La Zeppa! She recommended we sit outside and she arranged all the cushions, umbrellas and music (jazz) and it just continued from there. Fantastic recommendations on wine. Food was amazing and reasonably priced. Service with a smile and on tap! After such an amazing few hours of great wine, food and company... my girlfriends and I have vowed to bring all our friends there and I'm considering having my 40th here too. I'm so glad we stumbled across the Oakroom and highly recommend it to anyone! Please, please, please try them out. If you are looking for a place that offers A+ in terms of customer services, ambiance, quality etc etc... This is it! Thanks again to the awesome Duty Manager ( so sorry I didn't catch your name)... But we'll be back! :-)
I visited the Oak Room for lunch today. The place had a bit of a NY feel to it. The most impressive part was the very good service by the barman. Highly recommend!
