Love the food, our waitress the best, everything was perfect
Fantastic food and drinks. Really great whiskey cocktails with a lotta complexity and nuance. Great bartender and servers too. Wish we could go again soon.
Food was good. Service and experience lacking.
Always amazing and a wonderful experience! I love coming here with friends and experiencing the unique vibe that the restaurant and staff brings to OKC.
Loved the variety and uniqueness of the food and cocktail menus. The waitstaff was very friendly and offered great suggestions. Our food was timed perfectly. We tried the fried green tomatoes, lamb ribs and oysters as well as the tomahawk steak. All were wonderful!
The absolute best part about tonight’s experience was the drinks. I had a “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” and the mixologist went easy on the sugar at my request and I loved it. It was a work of art for the eyes and palette.
My second drink was an espresso martini and it was exquisite.
Lastly our table discovered a new wine: Rombauer Zinfandel. Omg - I will be ordering a case to my house.
The scallops were underwhelming, the cast iron steak had a lot of fat and grizzle. The flavor profiles of both were nothing to write home about.
The Peruvian potatoes and crispy sprouts that came with the cast iron strip were the stars of the dish.
The goat cheese appetizer was A+.
The dessert of the day was a thumbs down.
My friend enjoyed the lavender chicken.
This is undoubtedly one of the best culinary experiences in OKC. The service was excellent, the environment is tremendous, and the menu is unparalleled!
Noisy crowd but the food was delicious as always! We will be back!
We weren't prepared for the decadent culinary experience we enjoyed. My taste buds fantasize about the smoked mac and cheese bites.
William the bartender really dealt well with my mother's request. Our waitress was knowledgeable, courteous, and timely! !!! Couldn't have asked for better!!!! Thank you so much for a grey Mother -Daughter Day!!!!
Outstanding food and drinks. Everything from starters to entrees was excellent. Didn’t have room for dessert this time but will definitely return.
Fabulous food and service! Great gluten free options. Highly recommend!
Great food, good drinks with a twist! Fun date night restaurant.
Appetizer was great. The steak was not a New York strip steak like presented in the menu. The sauce on the steak was delicious. The steak itself was a tip sirloin cut. It was very tough and chewy. Half my steak was gone because I had to cut the gristle out. The sides of the entre were potatoes. They were too sweet. I expected more from a prestigious restaurant. The tropical drinks did not balance and were overloaded. (Missing Pineapple) In honesty it was overpriced for the food. I could have gone to Salt Grass for a melt in your mouth fall apart steak, but I figure Black Walnut sounded fancy and refined. On a lighter note, the location was great, the ambient was awesome, and the service was perfect. The staff was on a level I have never seen before. Excellent teamwork. I cannot recommend unless you want to impress a date or like to over pay for drinks and have a quiant evening.
The food was very good as were the cocktails, especially their espresso martinis. I didn’t have my socks blown off but I would absolutely eat here again.
The food was fantastic and the service was great. We had the tomahawk steak and the flavor was great and so were all the sides
Always a pleasure to dine here
This was our second trip to Black Walnut and the staff is very friendly. Our waitress gave great drink recommendations and didn't rush us through dinner. We love the fried green tomatoes for a starter and the cast iron strip was cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back.
A different menu but delicious food!! Great atmosphere.
Great experience, food was some of the best we have had in OKC
It was our first time at Black Walnut but I will be back. The ambience and service was great, and the food was amazing!! We got the steak tomahawk and the pork tomahawk with a variety of shareables from the menu, and we loved it all. 10/10 it’s one of the best restaurants in OKC
Totally LOVED no sleep till Brooklyn!!!
The appetizers a.k.a. small plates were absolutely to die for!
It was a great experience. We will come back for sure. Our waitress was so kind. I really appreciate her professionalism and kindness.
A completely unique menu with so many great choices. The food itself was fantastic. Great service, great atmosphere. Can't wait to go back.
This was an experience. My dinner was amazing. I can't wait to come back with a few girlfriends who like to eat as much as I do so we can try it smorgasbord style.
Valentine’s Dinner. Still our favorite place. Food wasn’t up to par this time around.
Galentines day dinner with my friends!! It was a success!! I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Foood was bomb!! Service was exceptional! Our waitress, Allegra, was wonderful as well as the other staff! We had oysters, the lamb ribs & hush puppies, and mac & cheese bites for apps. Must try! The peruvian potato & brussel blend that was paired with my strip... *chef’s kiss*. We will be back.
Went for dinner with my husband, wonderful food, drinks and atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Great service and interesting menu. We had the Mac and cheese bites, cast iron strip and pork tomahawk. All the food was delicious. The drinks were interesting and well done, just not my favorite. For dessert we got the red velvet cake - we could have skipped it. It was ice cold and didn’t have much flavor.
Above what we had expected. Very good food. Staff was excellent. Great for special occasions, date night, or just an intimate evening.
Service was bad, 1 out of 3 apps was cold.. not the worst but expected more.
The veggie options were excellent. The ingredients need to be spelled out a little more as the veggie balls both had goat cheese in them and some folks really dont like goat cheese. Service was excellent.
Amazing food.. amazing service.. can’t wait to return
First time dining at the Back Walnut. I made reservations for my birthday on a Saturday and we were sat right away. The girls at the check stand were very sweet and personable. One was in training and was doing awesome.
Our server Ryan was running nonstop but never failed to check in with us or fill our glass. Ryan is a Rpckstar!!! The manager came over as well to check in on our experience which is always a plus for me. Our meal was so good, I wanted to order it again and take it to go🥰. Also, if you would like desert your options are their Black Walnut Cake OR just step over into LaBaquette, select another kind of desert(tons of options) and they’ll have it brought to your table.
10/10 would recommend, WILL RETURN, and will think about that meal until I enjoy it again. 😁
Great as usual!!
Fantastic restaurant. I’ll be back without a doubt!
Tomahawk was amazing.
Amazing food, great dining area, and great service. There are definitely some unique recipes and cocktails that are worth trying.
Wonderful experience! The food was amazing. A great blend of flavors and and ingredients made the menu very interesting and enticing. We selected multiple different plates from all the sections of the menu and were very impressed with each dish. The bar menu was equally exciting. We tried five different cocktails and each was so unique and satisfying. The ambience of the room was low key, relaxed, and elegant. I cant say enough about the professionalism of the staff. Our waitress was outstanding, she was so knowledgeable of the menu and offered many suggestions and reviews of her own. She was prompt, very courteous, sweet natured and friendly. I think of her as the quintessential Oklahoman. She is a super star! It was my first visit to the restaurant and it will not be our last, we discovered a new family favorite!
