Contemporary American
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.

Excellent service!! Food was wonderful, server was very helpful! We have a gluten allergy and chef made some very good recommendations. Ambience is swank 1940s, loved it all!

The Skirvin could be a place people fight for reservations but the entrees struggle. Are they worth the surprisingly low cost? Yes. But they don’t match the beautiful ambiance of the Skirvin. The desserts were phenomenal. But my soggy fries made me sad. The food in general was just ok. I would return if I was in the neighborhood. The entire experience is luxurious, except for the food itself. Forgivable. I hope for better things in its future.

The description of the food far out does the actual food!
Ordered the Nashville hot chicken with poached egg, the poached egg came out hard-boiled. When I pointed it out to my server and then again to the floor manager I was told that I was wrong and that they serve theirs hard poached. Guess that’s why we were practically the only diners.🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ #neveragain

This kitchen needs an intervention. Careless and incompetent. So shameful that they discounted the tab 30% and added free breakfast which was equally incompetent and careless. Maybe this was a uniquely bad experience but it was really really bad.

I came in for a lunch. Parking was a drag because I had to pay. Inside of the restaurant It's very spacious and historic. The food was kinda greasy. It was okay, and still edible.

Quiet restaurant. The tables seemed unclean because of stains from glasses? The service was great, attentive, and a table touch was done by the manager. The wedge salad was huge and the dressing was really good. The filthy martini had too much vermouth and not enough olive juice. Complementary bread was appreciated and served warm. I ordered the pork chop which was overcooked, and a little tough. Dipping it in the porcini truffle butter helped and was delicious. My boyfriend ordered the steak and didn’t care for the chimichurri sauce that was underneath. Detracted from the Great cut of meat, which deserves only salt and pepper and maybe a finishing pat of butter. The sides are alacarte and a bit pricey. The Brussels sprouts were tasty and the beau had the crawfish Mac and cheese. It was good with a little kick. Overall a good restaurant but not one of the top 10 in OKC.

We were there for almost two hours at lunch because of service. Table stained with glass rings. Server took at least 30 minutes before she took our order, and the next wait was on. All three of us ordered the steakhouse salad.
Even if the food was 5 stars, I will would never go back because of the service. Really disappointed that the Skirvin would allow this kind of service.

Our dining experience at the Park Avenue Grill was excellent as usual. I had the salmon and my husband the Prime Rib. Both were delightful choices and we would definitely recommend.

Now, despite the 5-Star review, I can't say much for the OpenTable website and its recommendations. Because of its location to the Civic Center, our first choice for dining was the Museum Cafe. As I suspected, all of the time slots were booked and since we love Park Avenue Grill, that was our second choice. We decided to dine there and then take the short walk to the Civic Center to see the production of Hamilton. According to OpenTable the only time slot available was 5:45. I didn't want it, but took it. On our way from Norman, we phoned ahead to inform the Grill that we were running late, but would be there. We arrived at 5:55. Imagine our surprise when we were greeted by an empty dining area.

During our entire dining experience, we were the ONLY ones in the entire restaurant. A single woman showed up at 7. That was it! Why were the other time slots blocked when there clearly weren't other reservations? Where were all of the people who were supposed to be there? We enjoyed our meal and the leisurely walk to the Civic Center, but am having 2nd thoughts about ever using the OpenTable website for future bookings.

We were the only people in the restaurant so nothing was because they were rushed.
Scallops were wonderful
Filet was good but no seasoning.
Mushrooms rubbery and too sweet. Base was inedible. Broccolini sauce was good. Broccoli I was undercooked.
Dessert was great.
For $119 it was disappointing

The restaurant was empty when we arrived! The bread was dry, the Caesar Salad had an unusual dressing and the pasta was bland. The Peanut Butter Pie was interesting with a very hard chocolate crust. The filling was the best part of the whole meal. I was surprised at the cost of the meal. Overpriced and we need to remember to put this on the list to not eat there again. Very disappointed.

We expected more for the location and what was presented on the menu. I believe we paid $33 for scallops and there was only three of them. By the time to rissoto came out we were all finished with the meal - and it was very al dente...

My wife and I enjoyed a St. Patrick's Day brunch at this restaurant. We were warmly greeted, seated in a flash, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole morning. We partook of the corned beef and eggs dish in honor of St. Pat and were not disappointed. The corned beef was flavorful and the Dijon Hollandaise was the perfect sauce for this dish.

The greatest thing about this venue, though, is EDGAR CRUZ serenades while you munch. Mr. Cruz is an Oklahoma Treasure. If you haven't heard him play the acoustic guitar, get here next Sunday. He plays, arranges, composes, and is simply phenomenal. I am amazed all the sound that comes from his fingers and just one guitar. We will make this a regular hang out.

Food could've been better. Waitress was awesome! The appetizers were awesome too! Steak was steak. Scallops were great. Mashed potatoes were missing some sort of extra flavor, asparagus was cooked and flavored well. Creme brulee was just ok, carrot cake tasted store bought, not fresh. But, for a hotel restaurant, its do-able. Pricey though. About $100 per person (including waiter/waitress tip), I was hoping for more.

Didn’t get our appetizer before the meal so we just cancelled it. My meal was scallops, lemon risotto and Swiss chard entree. Chose that over the scallops a la cart from the grill menu. $3 cheaper and since my hubs got a burger don’t want a large side by myself. I got 3 scallops And a bowl full of risotto. With a teaspoon of chard as a garnish. My hubs liked his. Mine was good, just seemed pretty pricey for what I got. $32 for mine. Hubs burger was $13 and was gourmet so it was worth it for sure.

We won’t avoid it, but won’t seek it out either.

This was by far the worst overall place to spend a holiday. We wouldn’t even come here again if it was the last place in OKC to eat and we were starving! Service was awful & the food was nasty, cold & expensive! (Average $50 per person + tip & tax!) Opentable should remove this restaurant from their service! What an embarrassment.
For the thanksgiving dinner you were offered either turkey or prime rib. Then they served all carb side dishes! - mashed potatoes, hash browns casserole, Mac & cheese & stuffing- NO gravy! They did also give us a green bean casserole that was gummy & gluey, just terrible, inedible. Couldn’t order mixed specialty cocktails either, just straight up whiskey, bourbon... and a very few selections of wine, no beer!!! Never could get an answer why. Desserts were only a tad better. Super disappointed.

Music by Edgar Cruz was the only good thing about our Sunday brunch/lunch experience.
Our waitperson must have been having a bad day, as her service and attitude were pitiful.
We had reservations for 11:30 and two of us decided on the buffet, but to our dismay it was shut down by 12:30 and no one told us that when we ordered. We were taking our time and enjoying one item at a time since we did not know it would close so quickly. We wound up paying $20 for what seemed like a free hotel breakfast. My husband ordered corned beef hash from the menu but said it was not very good.
Next time we want to listen to Cruz melodies, we will just sit at the bar and drink.
