About Park Avenue Grill - Skirvin Hilton

Park Avenue Grill is steeped in the heritage of Oklahoma City’s iconic Skirvin hotel. Through the restoration process of the restaurant we uncovered several elements of the original 1930 Skirvin Coffee Shop. This historical craftsmanship is why at Park Avenue Grill we pride ourselves on being different.

We feature a classic American grill with a strong focus on prime steaks, fresh seafood and pride in our Oklahoma food and beverage heritage. The grill will have updated menus November 1st for your dining pleasure and an expanded wine list and we will be offering 15 fantastic Oklahoma beers for your state sampling.

Nice location and dining area. We ordered the prime rib special which includes prime rib, a salad, a side and dessert for a good price. Even though we were the only people in the restaurant on a very busy downtown evening, service was slow and lacking. The waitress was friendly and tried to be helpful in a social way but her table service was only fair. Salads were ok- bacon tasted old. The prime rib and the mushrooms were room temperature. The only really good dish was the au gratin potatoes. The dessert seemed like a frozen pie from the grocery store. I want this restaurant to do well as it is in a wonderful hotel in a wonderful downtown location. Could be so good. But it’s not.

Loved the new "Grill' forward chef inspired menu. Steaks were prepared perfect and sides were creative as well as delicious. Park Ave Grill has changed for the better and is amazing!

There was no one to seat us when we got there, although we had reservations. Then, apparently, they did now show that we were there insofar as Open Table is concerned. The wait staff was friendly. The menu was limited, and the food itself was average. For three of us at lunch, with three sandwiches, two desserts and one iced tea, the bill was over $70, including tip.

We came here for brunch on our anniversary. We thought (via the open table app) that there was a brunch deal offering 2 specialty drinks, 1 small plate brunch appetizer and unlimited brunch favorite items for $30. Once we were seated we asked about the deal and they got the manager to come out and tell us that was "old and they don't honor that anymore". We were disappointed but there were menu items we still wanted to try so we decided to go ahead and order. I had wanted to try the blackberry waffle with pistachios -- as soon as I ordered our waitress said they were "completely out of waffles". Brunch said it ran from 10-3pm and this was 1:00pm and they were out of waffles and wouldn't make any more. That was the last straw. We left. They didn't try to stop us. We feel very mislead by the ratings and information on OpenTable. The deal needs to be taken off if they aren't going to honor it. Maybe our experience wasn't the norm, but we didn't feel valued there, had a horrible experience and we won't be back.

We went for dinner before Paul McCartney an hour and a half before showtime. They were short staffed and tried their best, but ultimately we rushed through dinner and the check to get there on time. They should have been better prepared for an evening event.

I had not eaten here in the last couple of years and was disappointed at the lackluster meal.
My salmon was plain and nothing special with broccoli that was underwhelming.
For the price I would expect a much better meal.

There were 5 in our party. I had the wedge salad (blt) and it was more like a mini wedge. There were 3 chunks of salad, approximately 6 small pieces of bacon and 6 pieces of tomatoes. One would have thought for $13 there might have been more bang for your buck.

The others in our party were not to terrible impressed with their lunch choices as well but none quite as unimpressive as mine. I thought the Skirvin would have had more impressive food choices than what we experienced today.

Don't believe I would recommend or return.

I have had problems the last few times I have come here. We waited at least 5 minutes after having our reservtion acknowledged. We felt ignored. The floor by hostess area looked positively dirty. We had a server in training who insisted on giving me the wrong entree. I had ordered a blt salad and she tried to give me an entree that had no lettuce or tomatoes. She apologized, but honestly why didn't she just use her eyes. The food was fine, but I don't think I'll be coming back. They need to get some better servers.

Took my mother here for Mother's Day brunch. We had more than one issue with this meal, such as my drink coming out well after my meal even though the drink was ordered far before. After a manager came to the table and asked how things were I made sure to let him know of our issues, and they compensated for everything that was wrong. They may not get everything right to start, but they definitely listen to complaints and try to keep customers coming back. Overall, a decent experience.

Pre-concert meal. Food was good, nothing out of this world. Service a little slow c side ring we were there early in the evening and there were only a few other tables occupied. Prices about what you would expect in a upper tier hotel restaurant.

We went to Park Avenue Grill for Valentine's Day. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful! Although it was great, I don't think it was necessarily $150 worth of great. That's my fault for not calling ahead of time to see if they would be serving their regular menu which they weren't. Regardless, it was an enjoyable evening.

As usual our meal at the Skirvin was lovely. I had the scallops and hubby had the rib eye, both were amazing. The champagne margaritas are nice and refreshing. Our waitress was attentive without pestering us. It is always a nice special evening out (of course we love their brunch too!!)

I had eaten here before a few years earlier, and had really enjoyed it. Since I was staying at the Skirvin, I thought I'd try it again. I waited for 5+ minutes for someone to seat me. I had to ask for a wine/drink menu, and was given maybe 30 seconds before being asked what I wanted...a little daunting considering the drink menu is pages and pages. My server was very friendly. The food was ok-the steak was a little tough, and the yucca fries were ok, but there was no sauce to go with the steak or fries. Overall, based on my previous experience and the prices on the menu, it was a little disappointing.

This was my first visit to the Park Avenue Grill in the Skirvin Hilton. First, it needs to be pointed out that this is a beautiful historic hotel and the ambiance is amazing! The service was excellent and we were attended to by three different people who were all very polite and helpful. I had an excellent salad and the pork chop. I had ordered the pork chop medium and it was great. Here is my only small complaint. The pork chop came in a large bowl on top of the potatoes and it was difficult to cut this way. I think that it would be a lot easier if it were on a normal plate with the potatoes and vegetables along side. We all had cocktails which were excellent and finished with coffee. We were all too full for dessert but the choices looked great.
I would highly recommend the Park Avenue Grill to anyone visiting Oklahoma City. It also looked like a lovely hotel and I would want to stay there the next time I visit.
