I always enjoy brunch at the museum cafe'. The food is good, but the service could be a little better. I always feel like the servers disappear for long periods of time. Also, tra a fuzzy fruit, it is my favorite brunch drink!
We attended the ballet at the Civic Center. This was the perfect meal to complement this event and we truly enjoyed the flavors and new menu items that we had not seen before.
It was an absolute pleasure coming here! AMAZING!!
This is always are go to place when we have an event at the Civic Center. There are choices to please everyone. I had the house salad with salmon tonight, but I love all of their vegetarian options. I also like their wine list. It has a great range of offerings with many good affordable options. While we were there for dinner, I also recommend it for lunch and especially Sunday brunch.
Had a business lunch at Museum Cafe and really enjoyed it. Plenty of room to chat, not very loud. Easy to have a conversation. Food was great too!
On the evening of our dinner out to the Museum Cafe, almost everything was excellent. The wine, the service, and especially the food. The only thing that bothered me is that the hostess paced back and forth past our table. It was a slow night, so maybe she was bored...I don't know, but if she hadn't have done that, it would have been a perfect evening.
Shrimp and Grits and amazing!!!!!
My daughters, a friend, and I came for Easter Brunch after church. The pace was not frenetic but comfortable. We love the Museum Cafe. It's THE perfect place for a (very) nice meal for great food and great conversation. Our server, William, was attentive without being overbearing. Just the right service as we've come to expect at the Cafe. Thank you for a lovely Easter.
Overall was good. Was there for Easter. Our server was nice; could tell he has worked there for a while. The server assistant came by with muffins and said this is blueberry and I don’t know what the other one is. Probably not the best thing to say...
Took about 30 minutes for food which I understand it’s Easter but the place was maybe half full. And there were three tables around us that got food before us and they sat down after us! I can’t imagine what would happen if the restaurant was actually busy.
The hostess was very rude. She gave me a look when I walked in and never smiled!!!
Would maybe return on a normal day to see if today was just an off day.
The food was very good though!!! This would be the main reason to come back.
Jessy, the manager, is a gem.
Always a nice dinner and ambiance!
At the time of our meal (Saturday @ 2:30 PM) the place was almost empty but the service was scarce. We had been here before, in multiple occasions, this time felt like Meh! We’ll be back to see if this is the new normal or this one time was an outlier.
Excellent service! Our waiter was very attentive! Great atmosphere. Quickly in and out for lunch!
Sure wish there would be something new on the Sunday brunch menu. The meal was good. I like the melon and pineapple slices better than the finely chopped version they used to serve. Had to ask for the muffins, which were dry and overcooked and the butter we requested never arrived. Waiter was friendly but hard to find when we needed something. My friend ordered the croissant club, which was supposed to include avocado. We had to request it because it was missing from the sandwich.
Exceptional food and service! Great location near theatre and museum. Glass windows allow for people watching, but quiet enough inside for private conversation. Lovely place for friends to gather or to bring a guest to enjoy a good meal.
This was our first experience at the Art Museum Cafe and it was great! I had to mark 4/5 stars for food only because my elk was overdone, but still excellent (ordered medium rare, got medium). My wife got the seafood macaroni and cheese which was also really good. I would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for good food in a great setting, and we will absolutely return again!
We had a very quiet and meal and was able to get to put show on time!
My six-year-old great-niece, Kate, and I ate dinner at the Museum Café before attending Finding Neverland at the Civic Center. I picked the Museum Café because it is so convenient to the Civic Center and because so many other downtown spots are currently compromised by all the current construction. Still, I wasn't sure how well they would accommodate a 6-year-old. I have to say our experience exceeded my expectations. They had a children's menu that included a PB&J with lots of fruit, which made Kate happy. Plus, she loved the pre-dinner roll. I, on the other hand, could have a nice glass of wine and the restaurant's standout Lobster Bisque. Something for everyone, including sharing the ice cream with cookie dessert, which also had lots of fruit. Our server and the hostess went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. I won't hesitate to book the Museum Café when Kate and I attend future events.
My granddaughter and I were treated extremely well and enjoyed our special outing.
The food is great and the service top of the line--we love it.
we came for Sunday brunch....the serving sizes were just right and everything tasted so good. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and we plan to go back often
Great food. Best ambiance in OKC. Excellent service. Afterwards, see a movie in the theater or see great art when the gallery is open late. Very special place.
Everything was great! My eggs at brunch came out luke warm but still tasted great! I would highly recommend coming here for brunch! Great service and atmosphere. Large brunch and cocktail menu.
we were early for our reservation but hostess able to seat us. server, Zack, was on top of everything. had a wonderful Sunday brunch and birthday celebration. will return soon!
This was our first time eating here. It was me, my husband, and our daughter. We absolutely loved it! It was beautiful, fancy, and had great wine and food! A little pricey, but so worth it.
Overall it was a great dining experience. Some of the food could be hotter and our drink glasses were empty for a while at some points. This is a pet peeves of mine. The waitress and staff were very helpful and friendly. Ambiance, was nice not too loud, comfortable atmosphere. They had some interesting dessert options.
We had the crab cake, mussels and pomme frites, duck breast, and elk loin. The elk loin was amazingly tender and the Demi glace was delicious. Chorizo with mussels we're yummy. The remoulade on the crab cakes we're great. The duck breast could be hotter and the skin crispier. Creme brulee had a soft crackle, but delicious custard.
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.
I Booked Valentine's dinner at 135 dollars the first two dishes were great out of this world but the maim course Mahi Mahi was aful left a nasty fish taste in my pallet all night I could not belive I paid that much money for that to be my main meal not happy I did not feel very sexy after words for it to be Valentine's night with the wife
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.
Fantastic 2018 Valentine’s Day.
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 usually great but on this occasion we had trouble getting coffee and there was a waiter scraping plates ON the dinner table.
Messed up our order and service was terrible. Waiter never came to our table.
We ate a snack and had a drink at the bar before SCHOOL OF ROCK at Civ c Center. Always a pleasant experience
The Museum Cafe continues to be my favorite lunch option when attending local events. The food is always outstanding!
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.
seated promptly and courteously .
wait staff was courteous, attentive, and knowledgeable.
food was promptly served.
both the duck and the quail were cooked well but the sauces were a bit sweet.
Great place for a pre-show dinner or lunch with it’s close proximity to the Civic Center Music Hall.
You can't go wrong dining at the Museum Cafe. My wife had Halebut and I the chicken Curry. Great cocktails. Be sure to read the Wine List even if you don't order wine.
