 (Oklahoma City)·Dined 2 days ago

We arrived for a belated Valentines celebration. A yearly special time just for our small family. After being immediately seated, the staff served ice cold water and fresh baked rolls with ramekins filled with fresh butter. We ordered the escargot and mussels as our first course, and were very impressed by the unique style used to prepare and serve each appetizer. While the presentation was excellent, they tasted even better, and the portions of the escargot was larger than I have ever experienced.

We ordered the lobster bisque-a must and the tomato caprese as a second course, both were outstanding. Then on to the duck, elk, and lamb shank. While the duck and elk were somewhat traditional in preparation, they possessed their own unique flair. The lamb was something else intirely. Presented similarly to that I enjoyed in Armenia, there served in a type of saffron and ginger stew. The Museum Cafe served a very well spiced tomato based sauce. An excellent change from the typical lamb with mint or berry sauce.

To finish we enjoyed cheesecake with wild cherries, and a lemon crumb cake with strawberries folded into the batter twinned with fresh berries on the top. Both deserts were fabulous.

The service was beyond excellent, on par with a five star restaurant. While the prices were what you would expect from this type of setting, the portions were large with sides included with entrée selection.

We will be back, maybe to try the brunch on the weekend.

Waitress had no idea what the items were on the prix fixed menu for Valentines Day. She said the Wild Boar was steak/beef. And when we said, “isn’t boat like wild pig?” She admitted she had no idea. We ordered two different kinds of wine by the glass but they were both the same. Really really poor training of staff. We had no idea it was going to be an extremely limited menu otherwise we wouldn’t have gone. Everything seemed very pre-made. Would not go back.

We usually go about once a month but was very disappointed this visit except with the server. Autumn was outstanding through our grumbles. We had to grab forks from another table, my napkin was stained, we had to ask for complimentary muffins, which were overcooked and dry, and then for butter, had to ask for warm syrup for waffles and the portion of cream cheese and lox for the bagels was very skimpy and certainly not worth $12. It would be nice to see something new on the brunch menu, which is when we visit this restaurant.

The Museum Cafe is always a special place to enjoy good food with a nice atmosphere. It's one of my favorite places for lunch and/or dinner. It's especially handy when there is an exhibit at the museum.

The service was extremely slow. We had a 6:30 reservation and we ordered appetizers, soup and entrees. Our soup arrived at 7:00, followed shortly by our appetizers. Which was completely out of order and then our entrees were brought to our table about 7:10. I don’t understand why the wait staff did this. Our table was full of plates of food, which we couldn’t enjoy, because we didn’t want our entrees to get cold. We also ordered wine and cocktails from the bar and those didn’t arrive until after 7:00. I’m hoping this was just a bad waiter, because the food was excellent. We will give the restaurant another try and hope for a better experience.

I routinely bring friends and family to the Museum Cafe to celebrate birthdays because the ambiance is celebratory yet relaxed. One can't help be charmed by the restaurant's warm, inviting atmosphere that is elegant and cozy at the same time. The staff are always friendly and welcoming.

Have been here several times always before going to a play or musical at the Civic Center, so are always pressed for time yet they always provide the best level of service. Their food choices are always outstanding and enjoy all of their options they have available. Menu does change throughout the various season, so always something new to try. Highly recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I enjoyed a quiet lunch at the Cafe prior to our museum visit. The menu was varied and offered many delicious sounding choices. I chose the Black Bean Burger, which was served with a fresh-tasting salad of greens as a side. The burger was good and spicy, but although the ciabatta bread bun was soft, I would have preferred less bun to burger ratio. My husband liked the bowl of soup, but we were surprised at how small the portion size was for the price (almost as expensive as my burger with salad). Service was attentive and we would definitely return, especially prior to or following a museum visit.

Brought out-of-town friends to the museum and then for lunch at the Museum Cafe. We all enjoyed it very much. I think that all five of us got something different and it was all very good - salad, soups (tomato that they have every day and tortilla), Smokey Mac and cheese, crab panini, lobster bisque, club sandwich. Have eaten there many times and have never had a bad meal. The staff is always very friendly and efficient. Highly recommend the Nuseum Cafe!
