This was our first time at Oakwood Cafe. I had purchased a Groupon Coupon by mistake thinking it was a different restaurant. We were very pleased with my mistake. The restaurant is located in a small strip mall on Osborne. The parking stalls in the lot are quite tight. An individual was having a bit of a tough time getting... More

The Oakwood Café never ceases to amaze me. Ever since I lived in the area years ago, it's been a family favourite from their incredible fries with gravy to their spectacular local beet Borst. I love the Reuben sandwich everything has so much flavor, and the portions are huge. I would order a specialized coffee if possible, as they haven't... More

We have been coming to this restaurant about once a month over the past year and a half . This has always been a go to for good food. Sadly that is no more. Let me describe our last two visits. Last time I had ordered a main. The included side, a baked potato was mostly raw. The server gave... More

We decided to go out for Thanksgiving dinner and eliminate the preparation and clean up. My wife selected the Oakwood Café as our previous experiences were very good. There has been some remodeling and additional seating added since our last visit however they have still managed to keep the ambiance and cozy feel while adding much needed seating. They were...

Expect to pay lots for little. Portions are small. Shot glass sized soup. $15 for burger and fries. If you like looking over a parking lot and hearing traffic on Osborne go for it.

Can't believe that I have lived in Winnipeg for so long without enjoying the Oakwood. Excellent food and good value. Make a reservation. This place is busy. Highly recommend. Loved the perogies and kielbasa.

The food is really good at the oakwood but in my experience the service can be quite slow. Also it can get quite loud so if you're looking for a quiet restaurant this may not be the place. I would recommend trying the perogie burger, it's fantastic.

We have gone to the Oakwood at least 20 times-most recently on Sept 07, 2016. The food is always great and portions are generous. The breakfast special is usually an amazing deal. Lunch and dinner menus are quite varied and all items are reasonably priced. A great place for families. Make a reservation as it's very popular
