Went there for my birthday. The unique size and space provided an intimate setting for two. The service was great and I was impressed with his knowledge of truffles. The antipasti and main dishes were delicious. The owner’s disposition is warm and inviting making you feel as if you were having dinner in an old friend’s dining room.

Super attentive service in a quite and romantic setting. Well constructed menu with abundant amount of truffles in every dish. Solid wine list to pair every course. Truffled ice cream with fig really stood out and I’m not particularly a desert guy.

The restaurant is very small, but intimate. It is like walking through a secluded walkway between buildings but the decor is very nice. The owner, Rudy was fantastic in explaining what the dishes entail, and made great recommendations of what to try. I was there for my birthday and it was a nice change of location, as I have never had an authentic truffle the way that this was prepared. But I am glad I tried this location, the food was delicious and not overpowering with truffle. The filet mignon was exquisite and the dessert was delicious! Definitely make a reservation if you are into truffles as this will leave you wanting more. The service was quite attentive and they like to make sure you are happy with your meal.

The food was excellent and it lived up to the billing. Service was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The owner greeted us It almost felt like we were eating in a private restaurant with friends. The Highlights of the meal:
• Burrata
• Filet Tartare
• Tagliolino Cacio E Pepe
• Due Uova

Nobody said eating well would be cheap, and most certainly not there

This is going to be a long review so stick with me here! It's worth it!!

I reserved a table for myself and my best friend and we showed up about 10 minutes early. The beautiful blonde woman sat us right away as they literally only have a few tables.

The decor is quite simple, black painted brick walls, a large chandelier and a few photos on the walls.

A few minutes later a handsome gentleman came over to greet us and tell us about specials etc. Everything he spoke about sounded more impressive than the first.

We started off with the Burrata Al Miele. The black shaved truffles on top complimented the subtle burrata on top of arugula and a balsamic reduction perfectly.

I ordered for my entree, the Filet Mignon "Rossini". It has fois gras, baby spinach, roasted potatoes in a Barolo wine reduction. This I think, was the best dish. The filet was cooked beautifully, the reduction blended in with the woodsy earthy tone of the truffles. Amazing.

My best friend ordered the Tagliolino Classico. It is handmade pasta with a Oak signature parmigiano dop truffle sauce. He also paid a bit more to have white truffles shaved on top. To me this wasn't my favorite but still was amazing.

We also ordered a side of Piselli E Pancetta. Sweet peas with imported pancetta and black truffles. Again outstanding.

Now dessert.

Fior di latte ice cream with figs, pine nuts and truffle honey. The honey truly brings the dish to fruition. Delicious and the figs!!

I didn't catch the name of the brownie dessert because it's a special but it was amazing as well.

TBH this is the best restaurant I have ever had in my life. Complex flavors by combining simple ingredients prepared with love. You can tell that in each and every dish.

I will be back again and again.

The food was delicious. But get ready for an extremely rich creamy buttery meal. We each asked for a glass of Prosecco, not a bottle and they made the assumption that we were buying a bottle. That was inappropriate on their part. When they kept pouring it gave us no opportunity to switch to another wine, with courses. I thought maybe it was on the house. I will stop by and talk to management. It is a new restaurant. The black truffles were good. We did not order the white, which add an additional 60. to each course. Perhaps next time. There will definitely be a next time!! We both loved the decor.

What a meal! Wonderful service, amazing food, and a really cool little space. Every dish was phenomenal, but one of the desserts (I don't remember it's name, but it was a daily special) was THE best dessert I have ever had in my life. The truffles on every dish were amazing - it was a flawless dinner.

This was a great little spot for anyone that enjoys truffle and delicious bites. The owner was very generous, helpful, and attentive. It felt like you were walking into an old friends house for dinner. A small space, really good food, and a plethora of truffle. Don't skip dessert! The ice cream with fig, pine nut, and white truffle honey was PHENOMENAL.

I understand the concept, but the execution is flawed. The risotto was thick, salty and not flavorful. No amount of truffles would fix this. The classic pasta with white truffles was good, but a well-known competitor near Gramercy Park does much better. I would not return.

Chose this restaurant based on a New York Post article about a restaurant centered around truffles which I thought would be a good date with my girlfriend. I couldn't have been more right. Immediately the restaurant makes a unique impression with its cozy, but sophisticated atmosphere. The service was excellent with the wait staff and owner Rudy attending professionally to your needs. My one worry was that having truffle on every dish would leave me overwhelmed with the taste of truffle, but the truffle is expertly incorporated in each dish that it took on a new dimension in each dish. My girlfriend and I split an appetizer, a side, a pasta, and a dessert which equates to a perfectly proportioned meal. Each dish was topped with black truffle with an option to use white truffle for $60 more per dish which we declined, but in retrospect wish we had done on at least one dish just to try, but we will definitely go for the white truffle the next time we have dinner at Oak.

the restaurant's appeal is that it serves authentic truffles on most dishes, and truffles, of course, are delicious. However, the appetizer was very mediocre and the pasta was delicious. The prices are ridiculously expensive for the quality and creativity of the food.
