The Oak reviews

By G.

The Oak does pizza. Which is good if you like pizza but hate all the chains, but bad if you wanted some culinary masterpiece. Oak is in Notting Hill and is fairly cheap though, so for that it deserves a round of applause anyway.

We had my husband's birthday lunch downstairs at The Oak last week. It has a great atmosphere, the food really yummy - perfect pickie starters and delicious wine to go with it. So glad the Oak is back after the fire last year and it's better than ever. Can't wait for upstairs to open again this week. We will definitely be seeing more of the The Oak.

I am a regular at The Oak and last night was really bad. The seared tuna was terrible and the pudding tasted uncooked. They should stick to making pizzas.

Finding myself with a free Saturday night is a rarity so I decided to grab a girlfriend of mine and take ourselves to one of my favourite places in Notting Hill, and somewhere I haven't been for a while, The in is 12th or 13th year is really a success story for London Restaurants! Always busy on the weekend we knew we would be waiting for a table but the lounge come cocktail bar upstairs is a lush place to sit and enjoy cocktails or a bottle of wine before dinner - we choose a gorgeous Cotes du Provence Rose wine, far too easy to drink but the guys upstairs were so lovely and charming we almost didn't want to go downstairs for dinner! The hostess/manageress was totally in control of the evening if a little flustered - it's a super busy restaurant so I don't envy her at all and the restaurant staff were chatty and attentive. The food as always was delicious, I try so hard to not just eat pizza but they are some delicious we ended up sharing one pizza & one main course both exquisite! I'm glad The Oak is still successful, still busy & still providing excellent food and service! Definitely an example of how it should be done!

Not great and extremely rude management - plenty of better options on Westbourne Park Road, and much better options in Notting Hill. Underwhelming.

It looks like a pub from outside, but inside it is a nice restaurant with italian owners. Very good wood oven pizza. I ordered the Pizza margherita, which is huge. Will come back again at The Oak!

This place was great if you do not mind having money stolen out of your wallet as your friend gets physically assaulted by the DJ. Then, as you explain this to the manager, you get security called on you as if you were a criminal. Do not support this kind of behavior/service by giving this restaurant your business.

If you are in a group, don’t even think of coming to this restaurant, the food is excellent, but the service is the worst I have experienced in London for a long time! The manageress on our visit was by far the rudest person I have ever encountered. Even to the point of hostile! You would hope that a restaurant in this neck of the woods would pride itself on service but clearly not. As a birthday lunch, we were treated to ‘a hands on hips’ stand-off shout in the middle of the restaurant when additional members of our party arrived. Although the restaurant was empty (3.30pm towards the end of service on a Saturday) when the final members of our party arrived we were told off for sitting 3 people at a table for 2, not allowed to join the tables in an empty restaurant and made to sit on separate tables apart from each other! All of this would have been fine but even after trying to talk with the manageress she proceeded to conduct a stand up row with us in the middle of service. No apology was issued and no compensation was offered. When we asked to take the service off we had to explain ourselves again to the next shift manager, who seemed at least to take an interest in our situation, but again offered no recompense. In summary good food but not somewhere I would ever recommend or come again. Neither would any or our 15 strong group. A blight on an otherwise lovely day, such a shame.

By Marguerite G.

Forget it! On a Friday night, the two of us we go therefor dinner after 9pm and we're told to wait 45 min at the bar, which we do, however after 1h and 15 minutes we are still waiting (and starving!) so we inquire with the restaurant staff and see plenty of free tables. But they refuse to sit us down as they have to wait for the manager to opine. Another 10 minutes wait, and still nothing : we had to go somewhere else to eat! So much for the expensive pizza - really not worth all the fuss.

By Rajen M.

First time visiting the Oak on recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed it. Sat downstairs and it had lovely warm friendly atmosphere. Reasonably priced after having a three cause meal plus wine. Monk fish and fungi pizza were lovely. Offered a new desert free of charge after we disliked the one we ordered...topped off a lovely evening. Will be visiting again soon.

By Vish S.

Have been to the Oak on a couple of occasions and on both we had a fantastic time, the food and service was fantastic, good value for money, very nice friendly atmosphere.

If you wanted a culinary masterpiece, you should have booked upstairs at The Oak. The downstairs is quick service with a good atmosphere fix. Whilst upstairs at The Oak is a totally different league.
