Bodean Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We love fresh seafood, we were spoiled when we lived in Destin, FL! Considering that Oklahoma is landlocked, the seafood here is about as good as it gets. Very good flounder and swordfish entrees. Salad was crisp and fresh. Raw oysters were tasty and fresh(horseradish was a little weak). They sent home a tasty coffee cake to enjoy for breakfast or midnight snack. Very good, attentive waitstaff without smothering us.
The two you ladies at the check stand and reservation center, next to the lovely salt water aquarium were very cordial and set the evening on a proper note of positiveness. Tammy, our waitress was very accommodating and greeted us with a cheery "Happy Anniversary." The clam chowder was excellent; the cheese plate was extraordinary. The only less than sterling thing was that the salmon ( cooked to perfection) was covered in a very, too salty, sauce. But then some people prefer copies quantities of salt. Over all the experience was delightful and we will be back.
Bodean's always has fresh fish. We try to eat healthy when we eat out and fresh fish is a great choice for us. We love to celebrate our anniversary at Bodeans. The staff is always super friendly. I love the special touch of giving us a menu signed by the chef with our anniversary date on the menu. Also the dessert was fun, creative, and melt in mouth delicious. We will be back again. Thanks for a special evening.
Upscale. Management and staff are well trained and top notch. The entire operation runs like a Swiss watch, food and service are both more than excellent. Ambiance and decor outstanding. All this and yet a pleasant and relaxed environment is provided to the customer. BODEAN has prospered all these decades in Tulsa by providing THE unsurpassed seafood encounter.
I got the Chilean Sea Bass. It was very good. It was presented beautifully. The lobster bisque was delicious. And I would highly recommend that! We also ordered the crabcakes. I heard they were known for them. Possibly because of the high expectations, but I wasn't all that impressed with them. The sauce they came with was very good, but I liked the sauce more than the CC itself. I think it's a nice restaurant, but pricey IMO. We went early, because of a movie afterwards, but we were the ONLY people in the restaurant for at least 30 minutes, so if you are going around 5-5:30 pm, don't worry about making reservations.
We have a family tradition at Christmas of taken our children(grown adults) out for a nice meal and quiet conversation about Christmas past. Our children had never been to Bodeans. My wife and I really enjoy the food and atmosphere there so this year we decided to introduce them to Bodeans. Everyone had a great time and the food was excellent. Our server, Jimmy, was very attentive to our needs and answered all questions our guests asked. My kids just raved about the food and service. It was agreed amongst us that this will be our restaurant of choice for our annual Christmas dinner.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Having traveled frequently, I am always looking for good seafood and this was nothing short of impressive. For those who enjoy oysters on the half shell -- Bodean has a great selection from all over the country.
Superbly knowledgeable waitstaff who strive to make the dining experience perfect for the patrons. The wine list is extensive and wines are expertly paired with entrees. My date was new to seafood and was apprehensive about coming here, but the chefs prepared an amazing sea bass entree and suggested a magnificent wine to complete the dinner. She was impressed and will visit again.
We recently enjoyed a wonderful meal at Bodean's celebrating a milestone birthday. Service was impeccable; food was absolutely delicious. From the oysters and crab cakes to the scallops, alaskan king crab, to tuna to filet and ending in wonderful desserts of Chocolate dome and cheesecake - - everything we had was wonderful!!! Staff is so attentive - - they make a special event even MORE special! Such a great place! A true gem to Tulsa!! And worth any drive you have to make to get there!
Took my son and his girlfriend to Bodean to celebrate his birthday. Could not have been happier. Exceptional service - appetizers and meals were outstanding. Free dessert for the birthday guy, and everyone received Bodean’s “gift” - each of us received a beautifully packaged breakfast muffin. Thank you for making the evening so very special!
When our travels take us anywhere near Tulsa we NEVER miss the opportunity to dine at Bodean. Exceptional, big city, fresh/ coastal, seafood cuisine..... in Tulsa. An elegant, quiet, grown up ambience is matched by very competent, affable staff. Don't miss it.
