Museum Cafe Ratings and Reviews
We have been a regular for awhile. The vegetable plate is less then desirable since the bean patty eliminated. Two types of squash that were undercooked and lacked flavor. The server although sweet was clearly not used to serving in a higher end restaurant. Did not offer desert or clear dinner plates when we ordered desert. Very disappointed in the meal.
Our occasion at the Museum Café for lunch last Friday (11-10-17) was enjoyed by all. The atmosphere was quiet, comfortable and exceptionally clean. We all found our food to be delicious and served promptly and courteously. It was a very pleasant experience for all and one that we would recommend to our friends. Personally, it is my favorite place to dine in OKC.
Busier than usual we were told the night we visited as there was a theater event. However, we were greeted promptly, seated, and with a drink in hand in just a couple minutes. Food (lobster bisque, huge house salad, duck, scallops) was excellent and service was good. Quiet enough for conversation even though the restaurant was full. When we're in OKC again we'll certainly return.
The Museum Cafe did not disappoint! We have eaten there several times. Had seen some recent bad reviews about service. But our service was outstanding. We were running a few minutes late after getting in a traffic jam. We were going to the Pops after dinner. They made sure we got our food and out in time for the concert. The food was delicious, as always!
As usual, the food was good. The service, however, was what I would expect in a fast-food restaurant, not in a white table-cloth restaurant. The hostess acted as if we did not have a reservation and the designation of one of the guest's birthday was not acknowledged at all. (Don't ask the question if you are not going to acknowledge the answer.) It took quite a while for the server to greet us. My guest did ordered a cocktail and I ordered soup. I asked that the two be served at the same time and that when we were done with that "course" to place the order for the entrees. The soup arrived first, then the cocktail, and by the second spoonful of the soup, the entrees arrived. I commented that I wanted the entrees to be served after the soup, the manager offered to keep the plates warm - which, of course, I declined because I don't want to have my meal sitting under a heat lamp as would happen at McDonald's.
When we were done eating, the server asked if we wanted one or two checks (something that could have been avoided if the original reservation had been consulted). My guest asked for coffee - but it was never offered. We were not offered nor shown a desert menu. Though the restaurant was open for at least another hour, and though there were no other diners waiting to be seated, we were rushed out of the restaurant.
The food was good, but the entire experience was greatly disappointing. I will recommend the restaurant only with a strong disclaimer about the service. Right now, I doubt that I will return to the Museum Cafe, a place I have been patronizing for the past 12 years.
Dining out pre-ballet and for a friend's birthday, this was a lovely and quiet, elegant evening. The lack of noise from a younger crowd is refreshing. Our meals, salmon and chicken, were delicious and did not taste the way every other restaurant seasons them. Service was spectacular and personal!
The service was slow and inattentive. The lunch took two hours and it should only have taken one and a half hours. The server left our tabs for a long time at our table and I could not find her to get her to pick up our tabs so that we could pay. I had to ask another wait staff person to get our waitress. It took a long time to get our food and to pay out. I was disappointed in that. I expect for a lunch at The Museum Café to take at least an hour and 15 minutes to an hour and a half but not two hours.
Such a lovely spot. A little short handed for brunch on Sunday morning. Quite a bit of a wait. Never received the appetizer we ordered. Food was a little better than average. Have never had a bad meal here but got the impression perhaps it was an off day for them. Still will go back.
The kitchen staff was rather slow. My dinner took over 40 minutes to arrive, and the salads never came. The waitress was able to keep the glasses refilled, and the food that did arrive was good, but the kitchen couldn't produce the food in a timely fashion. The waitress never realized that the salad course never arrived until I reminded her when the bill came. She fixed the issues promptly and apologized for the error.
My best friend and I decided to have a Saturday girl fun day and we chose Museum Cafe for our lunch. We ate around 1:30pm so the place was near empty and we enjoyed our time very very much. No one rushed us so we took advantage of lunch, dessert and coffee and had a very enjoyable meal with a nice bottle of wine. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
The OKC Museum Cafe never disappoints. Beginning with the cocktail and wine selection through the meal and finishing with dessert and coffee, everything was tasty. Service was above expectation, as one of our party was gluten free. If there is any challenge, it is that there is only one vegetarian entree option and it feels more like a snack against the other entrees. Not that the portion size is too small, but the food option is not an entree. As was mentioned in a previous review, even though this is Oklahoma, it *is* the 21st Century. More and more people are vegetarian or even vegan.
Would not recommend Pre-theater. Even though we mentioned that we were going to the theater it took the waiter longer then I thought it should have to deliver a glass of wine so I made sure and asked for our check as soon as our food was served. Other than that it was all excellent.
