A word from The Chalkboard
The Chalkboard is a cozy restaurant tucked in the bottom level of the historic Ambassador hotel. The mix of Continental and European flavors on the menu make The Chalkboard one of Tulsa's premier dinning locations. The Chalkboard restaurant offers three private rooms and full service catering. The restaurant is open breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week and 365 days a year. The Chalkboard bar is a great place to get a classic cocktail before a downtown show or enjoy a bite to eat and great conversation with locals and business travelers alike.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Service was great, innovative drink menu, lovely atmosphere, the food was subpar. I had the beef Wellington, tough piece of meat, it came with "seasoned" vegetables. Vegetables were bland. No real flavor."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I have really enjoyed bring clients and colleagues here. I ask for the cellar each time as I often have parties of 8+ if we are noise we are somewhat isolated. Excellent service. Excellent food. Especially the salads, beef wellington, and creme brule."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Incredible service and food! Would highly recommend and will go back some day!"

  • "This was our first visit to The Chalkboard, but not our last! It was a wonderful experience with wonderful food and service. I ordered their Beef Wellington, which is their specialty and it was very good. My husband got the special, Beef Marsala, which also was very good. Rachel was our server and she was excellent! We will return."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We love this place! It's quiet, romantic, the service is excellent, and they have a great cocktail and wine menu. My favorite, thus far, is the gnocchi, and my husband loves the beef Wellington."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "It is difficult to carry on a conversation with the noise level so high. Unfortunately, a male employee of the place visited the table next to us and literally carried on a 100dB conversation which made it impossible hear anything else. His idea of talking is everyone else's idea of shouting. He was not the waiter, but another employee."

  • "We had not been to the Chalkboard in a long time, but were so pleased to discover that it was better than we remembered. The waitstaff was superb, the food presentation outstanding, and soooo good. We'll be back. You should too."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We had not dined at Chalkboard in quite some time because we had found it lacking on our last visit. Well, the good food is back. The scallops over risotto were some of the best I've had in Tulsa in recent memory. My fellow diners had similar experiences with their entres. The service was at time uneven although it didn't affect our dining experience. Most notably, our waiter failed to ask if we wanted dessert although we could have easily asked if we wanted something sweet at the end. Over all, this was a pleasant visit and we plan on heading back soon."

  • "A classy but not pretentious restaurant. The daily specials were excellent, posted on, of course, a chalkboard. Erich, the head waiter, is spot on with service. They have award winning mixed drinks ans their own bourbon at the friendly bar. Great original continental fare for over 35 years!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "I love the setting of the restaurant, small and cozy feel. It has always been known for the excellent food and service, but our experience the other night was disappointing in the fact that the server did not do a great job, we were rushed for no reason, it was virturely empty with just a few tables on a Sunday eve. The food did not match the price as far as quality. This was a birthday celebration and it was disappointing."

  • "This place has delicious food and great service. It was a very romantic restaurant and had a great selection."

  • "Ambiance, service, presentation-all delightful. We had a quiet, delicious dinner before the theater. A perfect evening out."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We had great service and great food. Our server, Eric, choose the cheeses from the appetizer list, and was quick to bring tastes of different wines to help with that selection. Our food came out hot at the perfect time. This is a great place to have a special dinner."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "This is always a good place to go for date night. The food was not as good as it has been in the past but still a lot better value and quality than other places in town. Would recommend for anyone traveling into town and want a little local feel of Tulsa or looking for intimate dining experience. All in all it was a good experience and will still go back."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My husband and I dined here for Valentines Day. Horrible waiter service. Skipped 2 of the 5 course pre fixed meal. Never refilled water or bread. Food was less then pleasing to the eye and the palate. I have an upcoming physician conference and I was thinking of hosting it here...it will not happen. I have had better food, waiter service and overall customer service at the Cheesecake Factory. That states a lot. I did pay my bill of over $160.00 and then went home to cook for myself and my husband."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The meal and wine were delicious. As always the portions were just right, and the presentation beautiful. You and your team were kind and welcoming, and made a special evening extra special. Compliments toi the chef too."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "My wife and I have enjoyed Chalkboard for several anniversaries and special date nights. We find it to be intimate and friendly with an excellent menu always cooked to perfection. Coupled with a night's stay at the Ambassador Hotel, it is a perfect combination close to home."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Meh. The service was great, and the atmosphere was incredible. But the food? Meh. It was bland, cold, and overpriced."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "it was all very good, but it wasn't anything outstanding or super special. It was worth trying, but I think there are better restaurants and other things I would try first before I go back."

  • "We'd never eaten at The Chalkboard. It was recommended by a friend who owns a restaurant where we live. It did not disappoint. We started with calamari, salads were great. All 3 entrees ordered at our table were great. Highly recommend petit filet and lobster ravioli."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "We went there for an evening meal because it was open on New Year's Day. We had the rack of lamb and it was prepared just as we requested. Overall, excellent dining experience!"
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "The menu description was not what was served. The Beef Wellington was about 2 ozs of meat wrapped in phylo dough, no pate. I ordered medium rare, it was well done. Did not eat it, nor would my dog. The chicken the other two family members ordered was also not edible. The $42.00 Prime Rib looked like a flat steak, very thin, with a few sprinkles of blue cheese on the top. Ordered medium, it came rare. Worst restaurant food I have ever had!"
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "The food is always good!! A great Bloody Mary!! Love the ambience. The service was a tad less than I would expect. A little more attention would have gone a long way."
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "Excellent Christmas day brunch. Incredibly large selection of salads, entrees an deserts. The Chalkboard may become a Christmas day tradition!"
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "I had heard this was a GREAT holiday brunch. Had folks in from Texas and wanted to take them someplace outstanding. Was a little disappointed that we did not get the attention that I thought we should. Also having to walk upstairs to lobby to get food was less than what I wanted to do. Would go there again but not have such a high expectation. My fault for not checking into things further."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "The service was excellent and the food outstanding. They were helpful with the wine selection and the waiter was attentive but didn't hover. A real treasure in a world of chain restaurants. Excellent chef!"
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "This was the absolute best meal we have had in the Tulsa are in quite some time. While there are often little things that might need improvement in most restaurants, this meal was exquisitely perfect in flavor, temperature, and presentation. It was a fabulous experience and we will be returning more often. Service was outstanding as well!"
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "The Chalkboard continues to provided good food. Our service was really slow but there were some holiday parties going on at the same time. The atmosphere is nice and romantic. Will return!"
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Excellent! !! We had a very enjoyable dining experience! !"
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Rack of Lamb and wahoo dinners were outstandig! Beef Wellington & Scallop main courses selections had excellent flavor but proportions were appetizer sized. Beef was maybe 4 ounces, over-cocked (medium rare ordered, medium well received) and three small scallops. The fifth dinner, the most expensive item on the menu, was an inedible "prime" rib eye, the cut was thin and griscelly. More was expected for $300+!!"

  • "We were traveling for business and booked a res here. Great beef wellington. We stopped at a bar a little over a mile away for a pre-dinner drink and were then going to catch a cab to the restaurant. Unfortunately, we ran into issues getting the cab so i called the restaurant and let them know we were running late and we headed out. It was a cold and a little rainy but we figured the walk would do us good. About halfway to the restaurant a guy pulls up and asks us if we are going to the chalkboard and offered to drive us there. That guy turned out to be Josh, the GM for the chalkboard. He took the initiative to come out and find us and take us to the restaurant. BEST SERVICE EVER! Service and food that night were great!"
    Dined on 10/16/2013
  • "A bit disappointing. The $26 salmon dinner was delicious, but the $32 Scallops dinner left the diner hungry. Three Scallops, a bit of Kale and runnny Risotto and then they charged us the hotel tax, and we were not staying in the hotel."
