I've dined at Cafe Cuvee three times and all three meals were some of the best meals I've ever had in a restaurant. I would make a trip to OKC just to eat there.

Very relaxing, clean, comfortable french restaurant with a nice but not overly broad offering. My wife and I wanted a quiet, romantic spot, and this was a great fit. Charcuterie and cheese board, pan-seared filet of sole, and the beef bourguignon were our choices and all were very well prepared. Drinks and desserts were good as well. Service was very good and the ambiance was perfect.

It was FANTASTIC! The service was impeccable. My girlfriend has a lot of dietary restrictions, and when we asked about the ingredients, Danielle knew everything we needed to know and was so so kind and sweet about it.
The food blew my mind. I had the duck a l'orange, and I couldn't stop smiling and laughing at how delicious it all was.
10/10, A+, best of the best. I definitely recommend. Bravo.

One of the top restaurants in OKC. We feel fortunate to have found it. Classical French, not really Nouvelle Cuisine.

We ate here on a Sunday morning for breakfast. Service, food, and ambiance were 5 star. Crepes with mandarin oranges and cognac sauce with house made whipped cream were wonderful. Quiche Lorraine was awesome. My husband got the 4 Oz filet with eggs and petit frites and his steak was cooked perfectly. Definitely going back. Definitely a hidden gem.

We arrived at the end of the brunch crowd (11am). It was pretty busy but were sat quickly. Food was delicious. Our table had salmon eggs benedict, garlic chicken crepes, quiche Lorraine and crepe Suzette. Everyone loved their food.

We really enjoyed our brunch on the patio. The staff was very accommodating to our puppy and we never felt forgotten like we have at other establishments when dining outside. The food was decent, though nothing very special, still we would certainly return again!

Great place and fare - very good cocktails, limited wine list. Poor server on our first visit, she’d probably be great at something that’s not customer-facing, definite detractor from the experience.

Food was very tasty and presented beautifully. Ambience was quiet and delightful! The service was above and beyond impeccable! This was our first time to eat at Cafe Cuvée and we did so due to a recommendation in an Adventure Road blog. We are from southern Oklahoma and will be back! Wonderful experience!

Beautiful patio seating for safe social distancing. My husband had a delicious crab eggs Benedict. He loves crab but has trouble finding good crab in OKC. He also enjoyed a tasty bowl of French onion soup. Denise, our waitress, discovered it was his birthday and brought a tasty dessert. All in all, this was a great meal.

Really good meal overall. Escargot was on point, duck was a touch overcooked but tasty, and the chicken crepes were weird but good. For a change of pace from the usual it’s a good dinner.

Third time dining at Cafe Cuvee. Our dinners, Rack of Lamb (chops) and Boeuf Bourguignon, were perfectly prepared and presented. If you like a classic French Onion soup, it's here. The ambiance is quietly understated and the service is top notch. From cocktail through desert is was a delight.

Pretty good hotel restaurant, but we were expecting better after reading reviews. We had an appetizer of pita bread and several Mediterranean inspired dips (served in the O Bar on the top floor - wonderful space) that was very good. I had a very good onion soup gratinee (think French Onion) and my wife had a very good salad of mixed greens. Our entrees though were both disappointing. My wife had the Crepe Forestiere and found the chicken to be dry and the crepe denser than she likes. I had the Beef Bourguignon. It was served more as a pot roast than the stew I was expecting, but the beef short rib was excellent - very tender and moist. The horseradish gremolata garnish added a nice touch. Points off though for using those pre-cut carrot sticks like you buy in the grocery store. I'm sorry, but a restaurant that fancies itself to be a fine food establishment needs to cut up fresh carrots.

Except for one hic-up with our drinks, the service was very good. Decent wine list, but nothing special.

The restaurant redeemed itself somewhat the next morning at breakfast. I had corned beef hash and my wife had Quiche Lorraine. Both were very good and we enjoyed sitting outside in the courtyard - a very nice space.

While not quite what we hoped for at dinner, still a nice restaurant and we'd definitely try again.
