We attended the Valentines Dinner and I must say the food choices were well worth the $45 per person charge. We have attended many affairs in NY, FLA, and NJ: and we rate this experience right up there with the locations mentioned. Ever since Five Oaks revamped their restaurant staff, we have been very pleased with the food and service. I had the braised Lamb and my wife had the Red Snapper, both very tender and tastety. The Lobster Puff Pastry for appetizer was a very pleasant surprise. I'm sure the Duck, if chosen, would have been as delicious.There was a homemade red velvet cupcake with a chocolate center and cream cheese icing that was exceptional. Five Oaks has definitely stepped up their game and hopefully will be one of the more upscale eateries in the Nashville area.
we attended a wedding reception for 130 people. the venue decor was very festive. the staff very courtious and polite. the cocktail hour was simple with cheeses, shrimp coctail veggie platters and puff ore'derves of mushroom and spinach(Delicious). the main course was surf and turf(Steak Oscar and lobster tail).probably one of the best dishes i've ever tasted. Dessert bar was very good with bride and groom cakes, ice cream bar, fruit cabobs and italian cookies shipped from ny(presentation was very nice). Only negative was that there was not enough servers for the amount of people attending. Water and ice tea glasses were left empty, the bar tender for the open bar left to help serve meals and coffee and tea were not served with the desserts which left a lot of people dissappointed and upset. Five Oaks needs to step up their service to rank with the more upscale catering venues.
