The museum cafe was recommended to us by a friend who lives in OKC. We were in town for the theatre and ate dinner there. We chose from the pre-fix selections and both thought the food was excellent. The staff was very aware of our time constraints and made sure we had plenty of time to get to the performance.

We would recommend this resturaunt to anyone!

We asked for a quiet table as one of our party is hard of hearing so we wanted to be sensitive to her. I’m sure they tried their best but it was still too noisy to enjoy conversation.

I ordered the duck and it was delicious but too big a portion to be pleasing and in balance with the other items on the plate, plus I’m a lady so do not expect a large meal.

The okcmoa cafe is a special destination and will remain as such. My comments are suggestions for a better experience and I remain a huge fan!

We’ve never tried the Museum Cafe but were excited to go for brunch there as a family before visiting the museum last Sunday. Unfortunately, we were completely underwhelmed and frankly, disappointed. The servers were nice but inattentive. After we received our drinks, we were largely ignored. We waited on refills for empty coffee and tea cups, and the food took over 45 minutes to arrive after ordering with no one offering any explanations for the delay. The French toast my husband ordered did not come as described. The bread was crunchy and lacked the dates and raisins mentioned on the menu. My Eggs Benedict was fine, but nothing special, and the breakfast potatoes were mushy and visually unappealing. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but it was just all very disappointing. We will not return.

We very much enjoyed Sunday branch at the cafe. I attended with my wife and 2 young children. The food was delicious. Service was excellent. Very attentive staff. Portions are quite generous and we all had another meal the next day. Good value as well. The restaurant is beautiful with lots of natural light. We plan on going back soon.

Went for brunch and a cocktail prior to visiting the museum. View was nice, waitress was attentive food was very good. A little loud, could over hear several conversations. That was a little annoying but not the cafe's fault.

It was wonderful. The only drawback is the lack of available parking. I parked in the parking north of the restaurant and was only a few minutes late (time it took to pay our tab and walk over) and I received a parking ticket of $23.00. Made our special lunch a little more expensive than I expected.

But the lunch itself was wonderful. Service was great and we loved it.

We had lunch after visiting the OKC Art Museum. We were seated quickly and given a description of the daily specials. I selected one of the specials (a watermelon kale salad) and my friend one of their sandwiches. I was very pleasantly surprised about how good the salad was and would definitely order it again. My friend's sandwich was HUGE and she saved half of it to take home for another meal. The sandwich was full of meat and veggies and was served with a pasta salad which she enjoyed. I have eaten at the restaurant several times over the years and have always had a good meal and great service...I definitely recommend it.

I've been to the Museum Café for business lunches and pre-Symphony dinners, which are always splendid - but I had never been to the Sunday Brunch before. What a treat! The special brunch menu was creative, pairing non-typical foods in tasty combinations. The wait staff was attentive and fun, without being intrusive. The entire experience was an eye-opener....and I'll definitely add the Café to my list of favorite spots.

We always have the best food and best service at the Museum Cafe. We frequent it at lunch and this was our first dinner experience but will certainly not be out last. Ashley at the bar took amazing care of us before the rest of our table arrived, made great recommendations and excellent cocktails. Cedric served our four top and was the perfect balance of attentive while still giving us the time and space to enjoy a leisurely long dinner. He and Ashley worked together to make incredible wine pairing recommendations for our meals. Thank you for the beautiful evening.

The Museum Café has been a secondary go to for us for a long time. We've always enjoyed meals prior to the Civic Center performances or for Sunday brunches. This time we took 4 friends...expecting our prior food quality and service.
I had the Eggs Benedict and my wife had the raspberry French toast. My Canadian bacon was crispy...to the point of burned. The potato was overly cooked, to the point of being burned. The little muffins they brought around before the meal were pressed flat. The mimosa and coffee were fine. Our waiter offered nothing special for him to stand out...felt like we were at the Waffle House. Our friends meals were just ok...much less than I would have expected from this usually fine restaurant. it will be a while before we return.
