Service best in town-and we eat out often. Great food-good and nice selection. Dover sole is good and served properly. Usually the raspberry soufflé is perfect, but last night night not quite usual texture. But cannot have everything perfect! This is as close to perfect as you will ever have.

We had drinks at the bar before our reservation. They had an electric collection of beers, cocktails and wines. I had a sparkling Rose and my husband ordered a beer.
After we were seated and ordered we had flip cards on the table to practice our French. The cards are a cute touch!
We dined on Thanksgiving. They had a well rounded prefix menu. I ordered the French pinion soup, salmon entree and Creme brûlée for dessert. My husband had French onion soup, beef entree with pumpkin pie for dessert.
We plan to return on a regular night.

Beautiful French dining in a quaint, friendly atmosphere in a fantastic part of OKC. What more can I say? Valet parking is complimentary when dining. Wonderful. Country Pate appetizer with greens and quinoa was delicious and beautifully presented. Rack of Lamb in cherry sauce with Luxardo cherries was also fantastic. The true characteristics of French cooking comes through in the sauce, tasteful and elegant without overpowering the delicate meat. The Grand Marnier Soufflé perfect cap to a wonderful dining experience. The night we visited, the server suggested a featured wine, Beaujolais Nouveau from Mommessin. While the oaked and aged Beaujolais have hints of vanilla and spice, the new wine of the gamay is extraordinary with more brightness and more flavor of bubblegum and cherry. It is limited availability and not on the menu, so ask for it.

Birthday celebration of filets, salmon and scallops for party of 4. I’d save the filets for a Steakhouse - good but not great. Salmon and scallops were both good. French onion soup was delicious. Service was excellent. Nice ambience, although scarcely populated the night we dined there.

Had a wonderful time! Our server Danielle was extremely friendly, had brilliant suggestions, and was just dope overall. Her knowledge of the menu helped me make the right decision about everything I wanted. I had my first soufflé and it was awesome. Kudos to you guys! Thanks for the delightful service and food.

I enjoyed the lunch, since it was a special occasion, but I wouldn't go for an ordinary lunch and often. A little pricey. I think it is a great date place. Cozy.

Great date night spot however we were on the corner Pilar and caught sounds from all around us which made it hard to hear. The service was stellar with prompt food service that was delicious.

Lunch at the Ambassador Hotel and Cafe Cuvée was outstanding. Service is ALWAYS impeccable. We had the Smoked Salmon Rillette and pumpkin soup. Absolutely perfect for a fall day. I asked, and was told, the restaurant smokes its own salmon. The taste is much better than any other I have had. Paired the salmon with the J Moreau and Fils Chablis by the glass. Cafe Cuvée has the best French wine selection in OKC. The Chablis is citrusy and crisp with tropical fruit aromas. It is delightful.

Lovely special occasion meal with a friend. Wanted real, good food, quiet atmosphere and time to talk. A home run on all counts. The waitstaff was patient and understanding. I had the steak with a sub of potatoes for the frites. Excellent Caesar salad, limited but well curated wine choices. My friend had the pumpkin soup with an apricot topping (cannot remember the word) and the champagne salad. It was perfect. Thank y’all for a lovely evening.

The pumpkin soup was actually served out of a pumpkin, and was creamy and tasty. My daughter had the French onion soup, and my husband had cassoulet. Both were delicious. Entrees and desserts were very good, although the Grand Mariner soufflé was excellent.

My server was so kind! She recommended an entree that cost less when I told her that I was torn between two. She was not concerned about cost, but gave her honest opinion about which dish she thought tasted better. Boy, was she right! The
Beef Bourguignon is amazing! My husband also enjoyed his meal. He said the filet was the best that he’s ever had! I highly recommend Cafe Cuvée.

Excellent food! Chef Jeff came out to meet us at our table. The bacon wrapped quail was a table favorite and was a great beginning to a perfect dinner. The desserts were over the top and included a pumpkin tart, fresh berry soufflé, a marshmallow s’mores chocolate cake, and creme brulet. Our waitress and service could not have been better.

We had been wanting to try this restaurant since its rebranding and hiring a new chef. It was definitely worth the trip back down to Midtown. The food was all excellent -- fresh oysters tasted as if they had just been harvested and shucked ; escargot swimming in garlic herbed butter; special of the day salmon entree was delicious with a unique medley of fall veggies as a side. Creme brûlée also was exceptional. Our server, Joshua, was very knowledgeable and sociable.
The only downside was the fact that the restaurant was almost empty; we prefer a quieter atmosphere for fine dining, but it's nice to have some social atmosphere. Hopefully this was an anomaly; it's a place that deserves a following or great French food.

This is a n impressive French restaurant in mid town OKC. The service was delightful , drinks and wine great , food was excellent with fantastic details and all the flavors you expect from French styling. The parking is a block away so you might want to use the valet if you are not local.

This is my favorite restaurant. That said, all kitchens have an off night. Last night, I am sad to say was one of those nights.

Fromage was tasty with good presentation. The white bean cassoulet was the highlight of the meal. There are many wonderful flavors going on in this dish.

The disappointment came in the Duck Breast a l’orange. I had very high expectations for this dish having had it once before. In anticipation of a well prepared duck, I paired it with a Premier Cru Pinot Noir from Bourgogne. The Duck was not prepared correctly. The top skin was chewy and inedible. It had not been seasoned or scored as is needed in this dish. The l’orange was absent from the dish, replaced by some canned Mandarins. Bloody juices from the breast pooled under the bird making the mint peas a bit more like a soup. While the taste of the bird was good, it lacked seasoning.

With such a disappointment I skipped dessert. I’ll be back, but the duck is off the menu for me. The service, as always, was impeccable. The wine was outstanding.
