We enjoyed. Father's Day brunch. The staff was quite welcoming and very helpful. The pianist was a nice touch. The food - both the choices and the quality- was as nice as could be. Thanks, Oakroom, for a great Father's Day
Fine Dining in Louisville, KY
We were in Louisville for Muhammad Ali's memorial service, and figured we would take the opportunity to try KY's only 5 Diamond restaurant. We both had the 7 course tasting menu, without the wine pairings. We decided to choose wines on our own. I can say that this meal was one of the best meals I have ever had. The food was beautifully prepared, unique in it's use of local ingredients, and had fantastic flavor profiles. The staff is knowledgeable about every dish, prompt, attentive, but not invasive. Their wine list is extensive and well planned. Recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.

I very much like the relaxed feel of the restaurant. Our party was made to feel at home immediately. This was not a stuffy restaurant where everyone was over dressed. It was informal
and we were all appreciated from the beginning. The food was so very good, even the ordinary dishes(such as scrambled eggs) was so very good. My group was very happy with the food and the hotel. This was the first time to visit the Oak Room for four of my group and they were impressed. We shall be returning again.
A special treat
First time at the Oakroom, to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary. Impeccable service, delicious food, all capped off by dessert with a congratulatory message written in chocolate on the plate. Had a memorable evening. Yes, it's pricey, but you get what you pay for. Just wish the hipsters at the next table had been able to put away the tablets and phones for a couple of hours.

I don't know who gave this restaurant a 5 Star Rating. There is no way this is a 5 Star Restaurant. The service was terrible! The waiter had no personality at all and no sense of humor. Although the food was good, the menu was something less that memorable. The food was in no way the same as it was described on the menu. To top it all off the cream curdled in the coffee! Overall this was not a good dining experience!

I usually really enjoy my experience but this is the 3rd time I have came and there was no crab salad. I was promised each time prior that you all would have it next time. Also there were some rude guest that kept asking the party in the private dining room to leave. I was shocked but I guess there was little the staff could do to prevent.

Poor service. Small portions. Decent food but not at all worth what you will pay. We love a high quality, upscale meal, but this was a disappointment. The building and setting is beautiful, but the service was sub-par and food was just OK.

The derby brunch here was amazing. Food was excellent, shrimp, crab claws, smoked salmon, oysters, and prime rib. Plus all the usual breakfast items and great derby specialities. The service was fantastic and people watching at its best. Will definitely do this every year.
First time at the Oakroom
This was my first time to the Oakroom and I was in town for a pre Ky Derby dinner. The meal did not start out well in that we waited 20 minutes just to get our drink order taken. In the end a three course fixed meal took 3.5 hours to serve. The staff explained that they were short handed I and our party observed that the restaurant was never full and the staff struggled to manage a load that should have been manageable. The food was quite overpriced and lacked taste and presentation consistent with the price attached. The wine additionally overpriced in comparison to other area restaurants. Perhaps better on a standard night but definitely not recommendable for special or high traffic occasions. Not sure I would "role the dice" again here
The best in fine dining bar none. Ther service was flawless. The food simple, fresh, innovative, and heavenly! The chef took the time to come speak with us and talk with us about the food. The food again, was the best I have had the pleasure on which to dine. His choices for the five course meal were superb. The sommelier knew what he was doing. Each course was perfectly paired. The matre'd, the chef, the hostess, the waiter, everyone was respectful, welcoming, and accommodating.
This was our last time
Have frequented Oakroom Sunday brunch quite a few times. Had not been there in about a year. Had heard they had new chef, didn't know what to expect. Well, believe I liked the former chef food selection, preparation, etc. better. Service was lacking, which we didn't understand because just few tables occupied. Dishes were moderately cleared, but since water was my drink of choice, would have been nice to have a refill. My goblet was empty about three-quarters into the brunch. I am not the type to have to flag-down a server. Actually, on a previous visit in 2015, table of 7, we were all but ignored by the same server.
Brunch at the Oakroom
To put together an outstanding gathering for family and/or friends, I choose brunch at the Oakroom. It has never failed to please everyone in our party. Thanks for the wonderful Sundays. Our recent server was so gracious. A gentleman and very attentive!!

The Oakroom brunch never disappoints... The set up was beautifully done..the food was superb ...the preparation was perfect. As usual the service was excellent.. Troy has been out Waiter on several occasions & is very attentive and kind.

We tried both the dinner and the Sunday Brunch. The dinner was merely adequate, but the Sunday Brunch...? DIVINE!
The presentation alone was gorgeous and made you want to devour everything put in front of you. From fresh oysters to fat shrimp to fanciful desserts to a house-invented morning drink to the savory dishes laid out like they were plated rather than catered and lumped together.
The price is right in line, about $36. Children are welcome and they all seemed delighted by the men behind the omelet take less who flip and cook and dice right in front of them.
Lovely breakfast, absolutely.
My husband and I dined here for his 38th birthday dinner. The table was decorated with rose petals when we arrived. They have an excellent selections of wines and bourbons.
We had the langoustine for our first dish, amazing. I had steak and my husband had pork and both were perfect. For dessert we had the milk chocolate and it was awesome! They even decorated the plate for his birthday. Wonderful place to eat. Great service and beautiful restaurant.
Spent a Saturday evening in the Seelbach and visiting downtown Louisville. Great place to experience the city . Decided to set reservations for the Sunday Brunch and what a treat! Great service and the food was spectacular. It isn't often that the diners are pulling out their phones to take pictures of the wonderful displays. Service was on top of things , but not intrusive.Great entrees and cold selections, but the deserts are worth the price of admission! My wife and I enjoyed the entire experience and hope to return and check out dinner in the Oakroom,
Repeat of an Excellent Experience!
The Oakroom brunch is not something you would do often but it is a great culinary experience. The price is high but the layout of food will leave you wanting for nothing. I've been twice and will definitely go again. It's a great "special occasion" experience. If you're planning on Mother's Day - book very early!
Oakroom is Awesome
The Oakroom, located in the Seelbach hotel, is a great place to have a quite Sunday Brunch. The food is outstanding and you get a LOT of choices....therefore, you need to come HUNGRY. Our server, Troy, is absolutely the best. He is kind, very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend making reservations for any Sunday, regardless if you are celebrating a special occasion. It will be worth it!

Poor and slow service. It took forever to get seated as the hostess was in the dining room dealing with table setup or clearing. It took her four to five minutes to come to the hostess station, then she left again to finish her duty in the dining room. Once seated, nobody came to get our drink order . We had to grab someone and request some water and drinks. Then a waiter finally came and took our order. We were almost finished eating before our drinks arrived. We ordered water, coke and iced tea. Totally unacceptable! This place was totally under-staffed.
