    This restaurant is one of the BEST in Tulsa!! I always consider it a special treat when we dine there. I'm a vegetarian and I am pleased with each meal I receive when most of the choices are meat specialties. The appetizer special never disappoints! The main course delights and the desserts will thrill any taste buds!! I love the atmosphere as well ..feeling like I'm in a special hideaway in NYC or DC. The service never disappoints!! Long live Tallgrass!!

    I planned a girlfriend night. I wanted to experience a restaurant with them; one I'd never been to either. We were in love from the moment we walked in. Those chandeliers captured me, the service wowed me, the food amazed me and the chef greeted me. Go! Don't wait! You won't regret it.

    My experience was wonderful. It was a bit cold in the restaurant it would be nice with it being winter to warm it up some. Also we were celebrating our anniversary and I had that noted when I made the reservation so it would be a nice touch for the staff to say happy anniversary to let me know they are on top of things. The server did a great job and the food was fabulous. I would for sure eat there again.

    We really enjoy new places and this is a great place. Brick and wood and I want the pipe chandeliers! Cozy and clean with an open kitchen to watch all the activity. The cheese board was just perfect for 2-3 people and delicious. I had the Pork Cheek Joe and hubby had the burger, both really good. I will definitely be taking my Lunching Ladies for a girl trip.

    I had not been to Tallgrass for lunch. Most restaurants seem to either rehash their dinner menu or settle for boring lunch standards. Not Tallgrass. I had a very creative and delish capprese sandwich with roasted tomatoes and roasted squash. When I ordered this I thought it would be either wonderful or awful. Thankfully it was wonderful and probably the best sandwich I've had for awhile. There were so many tempting offerings I'll be returning soon!

    Most notably, service at Tallgrass is impeccable. Staff are friendly and welcoming while performing the tasks of their jobs. The service reflects the the overall feel of the restaurant; it's a family dinner where you eat well and enjoy yourself amongst friends. Staff seemed genuinely interested in feedback about the new brunch menu, and we're great about dealing with our requests for a picky eater. The fact that everything is housemade is an awesome perk, and the sauces, especially, left our group ecstatic. The only complaint was that the home fries being served up for far too spicy for us as a brunch item, but the chef did offer up recommendations for alleviating the heat!

    Our family really enjoyed our dining experience at Tallgrass Prarie Table. Wonderfully prepared food , all the flavors came alive in each dish. Nice atmosphere, my only complaint was the noise - our family was seated by the bar with TV and live guitar player ( which was wonderful ) and at times it was hard to carry on conversation . I love the interesting gourmet selection of entrees Would recommend

    Several friends recommended Tallgrass Prairie- we finally made a reservation and sampled it. Loved the ambiance- exposed brick, nice range of table space for couples or groups. The drinks menu had several unique selections, great wine list. The food had great presentation, we loved the varied menu, lots of salads and small plates. Looking forward to our next visit, even if for just drinks and dessert.

    Requested a booth. If there is no booth (half w/chair is not a booth) then you should notify the person requesting the reservation. Also requested a quiet corner since the restaurant is too loud you should put that in the reservation information. Too close to the people at the next table. Felt very crowded. Server did not have time to explain menu or help with any drink recommendations. Felt rushed through the whole dining experience. The fried chicken was dry the potatoes were not cooked through and because of the feeling of being rushed did not feel like waiting on another dish. Also, if there is no free parking then that should be somewhere in the reservation. Did not appreciate getting a ticket on a Saturday night.

    Had high expectations, but was just an average lunch. Sandwiches were on nice bread from Antoinette's bakery, but were more bread than filling. Egg Salad was okay, chicken was dry (needed mustard, and the waiter was rather snippy that they didn't have the cheap yellow stuff, they "made their own." Needed the cheap yellow stuff to add some zing! The daily special was a ham and grilled cheese -- we picked half the bread away because it was way too bready. Decor was rather tired barn-door chic with chandeliers and cheap flatware. Prices were kind of high, no wonder there was no one there!

    The use of seasonings makes every menu item intriguing to the palate. I've never been disappointed in my selection, and gauging the reactions of fellow patrons, neither have they! Definitely a gem in Tulsa. Besides the food, the lighting is spectacular--and made by a local artist! I loved that aspect.

    This was our first time to eat here and we're already planning to go back. The food was wonderful. We started with brisket tacos and the shrimp and grits. For our entrees we had the meatloaf and brisket with grit corn cakes. We then ended with an amazing dessert. Our waitress, Eryn, was so kind and took great care of us.

    Cute place, liked the unique lighting fixtures. Sorry to say, my boyfriend's omelette tasted like egg substitute, not 'local, farm fresh'. I got the Huevous Ranchero. The corn tortilla was way too thick...it should have been more crepe like. The sauce was very good, but that darn tortilla stole all the flavor from the eggs! Did, however, like to cottage fries. Very good. The grilled onions, peppers needed to be put under the eggs, between the tortilla, rather than on the side. This is Brunch, not heavy lunch. Out waiter seemed a bit tired and confused. I have Celiac....he did his best, but...just not into IT. Perhaps...just a bad day for him. That's okay....for now. :-)

    Our dining experience was excellent! The food was incredible, and the service was exceptional. We ordered drinks at the bar before being seated, and the bartender actually came over to our table to make sure we liked our drinks. It was a small little thing, but it was above and beyond what was expected, and it really made us feel good. I only wish I knew his name so that I could give him a personal shout out (we were there on Saturday evening - September 6th). The service was personal, and it really made our dining experience great. I would highly recommend Tallgrass to my friends and family (in fact I already have to a number of people). We will definitely be returning soon!

The meatiest part of the prawns was absolutely gelatinous... we sent ours back as well. We had been there before, a couple of times. As always, the space is beautiful and the service impeccable.

    We had heard good things about the Tallgrass Prarie Table and were not disappointed. Creative menu featuring unusual taste combinations. Makes it an interesting place. Although the hard surfaces tend to make it crowd noisy, we appreciated the selection of gentle, beautiful music. Our waiter was excellent. Answered questions effectively. When he did not know about a potential wine choice, he readily went to ask and returned with a taste.
