Great place to do lunch. The menu had several choices of farm to table items. I had the Hanger Steak which was outstanding. The overall noise level was down so we were able to have great conversation.

OakLeaf is without question one of if not the best cuisine available within the Research Triangle! The entrees are impeccably prepared and served with accompaniments that tantalize. The staff loves their job and you feel welcomed and comfortable. Take the ride its scenic and less traveled. OakLeaf never disappoints.

I recently hit the Oakleaf with some colleagues after hearing about the place for months. It was billed by numerous folks as an out of the way place (Pittsboro isn't exactly on everyone's radar) but worth the adventure to get out there and try it. It's a foodie destination. So after months of talking about it we headed out. It... More

Cannot say enough about the unique menu with quality cooking and great specials. We went with a group and we received great attention. The choices were varied and we all appreciated the attention to detail. This place is very popular locally and it is understandable

Wonderful, attentive service, fabulous food, great atmosphere. Cozy atmosphere in a restored warehouse south of Chapel Hill in Pittsboro. Extensive wine list. Very fresh, locally sourced produce used in the dishes that were very creative and beautifully presented. Highly recommend Oakleaf!

We ate at Oakleaf on a Tuesday night. It was actually quite busy, which was a great sign. As always, our meals were terrific. The mussels appetizer has to be one of the best I have ever had. The mussels were cooked to perfection and the broth was so good, they know to give you a soup spoon to enjoy... More

I took my friend for a birthday dinner here. We ordered the cheese plate which was really delicious which had 4 different types of cheeses and 4 very thinly sliced apple pieces. I ordered the salmon dish and my friend ordered the pasta dish with sunchokes. The waitstaff put the wrong dish in front of me to begin with -... More

We were so pleased to have been given a gift certificate to Oakleaf! We enjoyed a wonderful meal, excellent service and atmosphere that reminded us a bit of our time in Europe--very relaxed atmosphere in an upscale restaurant. We are looking forward to returning again soon!

This is pretty much my go to restaurant if I want to make sure I have a really good meal. The staff is always able to answer questions about the food and wine list. They are a fine dining establishment without acting pretentious.
