    Wow. The food and the service could not have been better. There were West Coast oysters, and my favorite wine was back in stock. It was noisy because lots of kids were there for Mother's Day. But the special Mother's Day dessert more than made up for the kids, some of whom were really cute, anyway.

    The atmosphere is very lovely. Food was top notch. Delicious and presentation was beautiful. Our waiter was ok but my party and I all got the impression he overly hustled us to the point we weren't sure exactly how much we'd end up spending once the dinner was over.

    Our friends introduced us to Bodean's. The food was wonderful and the service was outstanding. A little pricey and not something you could do every weekend, but a must for special occasions. The gentle and warm ambiance made it a perfect relaxing evening. If you like to be able to enjoy and take your time to savor a wonderful meal, then Bodean's is the place to be.

    Too much noise from the table of extra heavy drinkers. They came drunk or loud! I had a difficult time hearing my family. Incidently, never hear back from surveys unless all the responses are positive. Thanks.

    I think of it as the best fine dining in Tulsa... there is competition from the steakhouses we all know about, but there is an air of class about the place you have to experience (once you go inside! It is in a very ‘average’ shopping center LOL)

    I took a friend for her birthday. She got the sea bass and I got the scallops. The food was excellent. Fresh and cooked to perfection. They gave her a free dessert for her birthday. I totally forgot about the coffee cake they send you home with. Loved having it the next morning. Highly recommend.

    Went for our 22nd anniversary and was blown away by the food, service and the extras for our anniversary. Got a chef- signed menu with the today’s date on the menu, which is our day. Jimmy, our waiter, was the best. Can’t ask for more in a restaurant. A definite return

    The appetizers, main course, dessert, and cocktails were very good. The only complaint I have is that when we requested to move from our table to a booth our waitress (who was pleasant) did a complete about-face. Granted, we were seated and had our napkins in our laps, menus, and water so it was an inconvenience to the staff to move us and re-set that table but we requested the move due to my mother’s discomfort in the chairs in the main dining area. It was either make a request to be seated at a booth or force my mother to be very uncomfortable in the chairs. After the move (we retained our waitress), the waitress was extremely curt with us and truly her behavior put a damper on our experience. She made it obvious to all three of us that she was displeased and “put out”. The manager and bar staff were outstanding before and after the meal. It’s unfortunate the waitress could not have shown more professionalism and kindness given the situation.

    Took my wife to dinner at Bodean's Restaurant this past weekend. We shared an order of crabcakes as our appetizer and they were very light and delicious. We followed that with a salad which was also very good. Then for the entrée we both ordered sea bass. It was outstanding and the portion was very large. I have had very good sea bass at other restaurants before, but they tended to rely on sauces to provide a lot of the flavor. But at Bodean's Restaurant there was no special sauce on the sea bass, just some kind of seeds and/species on the fish. It tasted like the great flavor was actually in the meat of the fish. It was excellent! There were two fireplaces in the restaurant which made for a warm atmosphere on a cold night. We topped off the meal by sharing a chocolate dessert which was beautifully presented and tasted great. Excellent meal, atmosphere and service.

    Every week for the past 10 years I have purchased fish from Bodean’s Seafood Market. It is always fresh and good. Hard to imagine you can get great seafood in the middle of America. But they fly in fresh seafood every day. I cook the seafood every week and fresh seafood is always good even when an amateur cook like me prepares it. Well tonight, I took my wife to Bodean’s Restaurant for dine in and the chef prepared seafood. We were celebrating her recent retirement and I wanted to treat her to the chef prepared seafood. Oh my goodness, Bodean’s Chef took seafood to another level. We had the paprika salmon, encrusted sea bass, escargot and tuna tartare. There is no better seafood than what we had! I can only wish my skills approached the expertise of Bodean’s Executive Chef and Chef de Cuisine. Thanks for making tonight special for a special event and special person. 5*
