    I am in OKC for my first visit. Cheever's was recommended by one of my co-workers. I made a last minute reservation and was pleasantly surprised when I arrived a few minutes late (thanks to traffic) that they honored my reservation. I could have had a table but I chose to sit at the bar. My bartender Ben made an excellent suggestion for drinks and dinner. I'll definitely go back!

    This was our first visit and it was for my husband's birthday. He had had a recent nice lunch there so we decided to try the dinner menu. We both ordered fish -- he ordered the halibut and I ordered the mahi mahi special. These entrees, priced at $32 apiece, should have been very very good. They were not. The fish was overcooked, dry, and chewy. Worse, the accompanying risotto was way over-salted. The service was quite good however and we have no complaints there. However, we have no intention of returning -- the food was simply poorly prepared and poorly cooked. A disappointment.

    Another great visit to Cheevers for a special occasion. Celebrated yet another birthday at Cheevers and was not disappointed. Tortilla crusted Halibut was SUPERB while my dates flank steak special was overcooked and so-so. You can't bat 100 every time and certainly did not change my opinion of Cheevers. Food was given slightly less TLC than normal and wait service was spotty but hey that's just a busy Saturday night in the restaurant industry. Might try to eat earlier or later next time and not during the rush, 7:30pm.

    I have enjoyed Cheevers for a long time, actually one of my most favorite places in the city. This visit I had my granddaughters and their friend from the Dallas area, as well as my daughter from the same area, my sister from Tulsa. They thought everything was fantastic! I love everything about this wonderful place.

  • Disappointing food
    OKCdiner
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    Ambience is fabulous here. This place is so lovely and romantic. That said, the food was really disappointing. The grits were clumpy, dry and tasteless. The pricey dessert we ordered was sitting in a pool of cheap Hershey's choco syrup. Ugh! I'm happy to pay upwards of $10 for a dessert if ingredients are quality but not for store-bought choco syrup. The pasta dish was not good. Bummer....as cute as this place is, we were really hoping the food would measure up.

    I took my mother there she had never been and I had only been for lunch and brunch. Large amounts of food we took a big doggie bag home! The potatoe chips with bleu cheese were a hit for an appetizer! Have not had anything on their menu that I haven't loved!

    When we walked into cheevers we were immediately greeted by friendly staff and seated at a cute table by a large window with a view of the garden. The service was great with all of the staff members being attentive to us. The food and drinks we ordered were delicious and delivered quickly despite the place being packed. Highly recommend!

    Had dinner at Cheevers on 9/11/14 for first time. In a word this place is "fabulous" and is at the top of my OKC metro fine dining list. Moderately priced with a very creative menu and nice wine/cocktail list. I had the seafood tamales which were beyond incredible. Situated in an old house just west of the state Capitol, it has long been a favorite among the Capitol crowd for lunch. Great service, not pretentious, great bar and most importantly great southwestern influenced food. It will be on my regular dinner rotation from now on.

    This is a gem of a restaurant in OKC. It is hard to pick an entrée yet even harder is picking out their unique side dishes. If you like Bleu Cheese, the Potato Chip appetizer is not to be missed. Every dish has a unique taste twist.

    Girlfriend's steak was perfect, it takes certain planet alignment to satisfy her with a steak. Molasses chicken was borderline over cooked but still enjoyable. Poor choice in music however, a bit jarring for the setting, probably more a consideration for the young staff than the patrons. I've eaten at Cheevers 3 or 4 times and I'd dine there again.

    Excellent Food, Excellent Ambiance and Interesting History. I ordered the Ribeye and the steak was cooked to perfection and my girlfriend ordered the Chicken Fried Steak which I thought was crazy at a nice restaurant. However, the Chicken Fried Steak ended up being the better meal. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. I would also recommend making reservations.

    Visited from out of town based on Open Table reviews and was not disappointed. Unique restaurant in an old floral shop with the former flower coolers now deployed as a wine chiller. Food was very good, Southwestern-accented cuisine. I had some of the best grilled salmon ever which is saying something since it's difficult to find a NEW preparation for salmon, but this dish served with corn bread and white beans was excellent. One word of caution: the portions are HUGE.

    Cheever's is always so good. The staple menu is fantastic and the specials are even better. The only complaint that I ever have is that the tables are so close together. It can feel very cramped if you dine when it is full. However, the food and the staff make it totally worth it. We try to do a girlfriend's brunch there about once a month.

    I dined at Cheevers with someone new to OKC. We had dinner to discuss some business. I booked a table for two for "private conversation". I saw two empty tables that met that requirement when I came and when we left. We had an awkward table between the front and back end of the restaurant. It was uncomfortable and awkward for business and dining. We discussed our business. I paid the bill and we left. Hosts should not assume that the customer/host is always a man. We live in the 21st century. This is the first time that I have been unhappy with Cheevers. This restaurant can certainly do better.

    This was the first time to use Open Table. All of my requests were fulfilled. What an easy process and the Cheever's staff followed up to confirm reservation. Lunch was yummy. Was concerned that the gentlemen dining with me were meat and potato guys, that they might not find the just right item but that was certainly not the case. Wait staff were very attentive.
