Very good overall experience. Excellent meals (Korean Pork Belly Tacos and Salmon BLT) and Service at reasonable prices. Large drink menu and food variety. Not a big fan of the breaded french fries.

Oakwood Bistro has an interesting menu, pleasing ambience, good service, and overpriced food. The salad I ordered did not include the almonds as described and had rubbery feta cheese. $15 for a disappointing lunch salad is too much.
