Le service n'est vraiment pas bon. Et je n'ai jamais vue un grand restaurant déposer un bon contre filet directement sur des frites. Elles deviennent complètement imbibées ce qui les rend pas mangeable. Vraiment décevant

Def not recommended. Not an excuse to let the table next to me walking around without mask/taking picture with flash every few seconds. Mutual respect, ZERO.

Steak was overcooked, extra side of mash potato(6$) portion and presentation was disappointing.

Oysters/salmon tartare, fresh and tasty. Very well presented.
Good spot for a few drinks & oysters.. thats it

we reserved a table for my boyfriend's birthday, and I spoke to different people on the phone on what I wanted a day before. And the day at the place, my table was not ready and they were asking me again questions. So they just put my on reservation without observing the kind of table I wanted. Food was cold and service is bad.

It was a first visit to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. Everything was to our satisfaction from the moment we entered the restaurant. Attentive but not intrusive service. Justin was very knowledgeable about the food offerings and proper doneness of the steak chosen. The portions were big especially for the shrimp appetizer we had selected. It was a meal in itself. Best steak ever hands down! I couldn't finish mine. They even included a dessert with sparkler for the birthday boy and even that was over the top! We'd definitely return. For those of you wondering, it cost $200 total for our meal and a bottle of wine.

Was there from 745pm to 1015pm so an extremely long wait for main course and missed my casino reservation for 10pm. I had ordered a tomahawk instead I got 2x filet mignon after 1 hour and 30min wait. I was absolutely not pleased with the type of service I received in a place that seemed very highly rated.

Even when the waiter makes a mistake and bring you beet tartare instead of beef tartare, it turns into a surprisingly tasty discovery. The gnocchis were amazing and the wine suggestion couldn’t have been a better match.
Maggie Oakes is always a good choice!

j'ai parlé avec la serveuse pour les vins ..j'aurais preferer un vraie sommelier avec de vraie conseil pour équilibré la valeur de la facture que j'ai obtenue après mon repas.
Je suis vraiement déçu du rapport qualité /prix/service.
j'ai choisi un tomahak et il n'y en avais plu , on m'a donc suggéré un autre steak vieili sans me dire le coût réel (67$). j'ai pris la mpeine de demander ce qu'il y avais de servie avec mon steak car je voulais steak , légumes, pomme de terre et elle m'a répondu oui. cependant quand l'assiette est arrivé il n'y avais pas de pomme de terre et j'ai dû en commander a part pour 6$ et elle sont arriver au milieu du repas.
si vous allez chez Maggie et oakes prévoyer une facture de 177$ incluant les taxes et ce... par personne !

I made a reservation for my special date. Although we arrived earlier, they had no problem accomodating us to a table of our choice.

The food was delicious and well worth the price. We also ordered two non-alcoholic cocktails and they were impeccable.

My only slight complaint was the slowness of service that night. Perhaps it was a special circumstance as they apparently had fewer staff members and even asked us to move from outdoor terrasse to indoor in order to make things easier for the staff. We declined but had to wait a bit longer before we could order and get the check.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this place, but preferably when it is less packed.
