Kevin is a very good attentive waiter. The bruschetta was a special when we were there an it was excellent as well as the Beef Wellington. My friend had the Beef Short Rib and it was also very good. I wish that I lived closer to this restaurant.

Kitchen was unbelievably slow. We waited over a half an hour for our food. The wine pours were very small. Very disappointed in it and this is been a long time favorite. We dined there last month also. The kitchen lost our order. They did buy her drinks as compensation. That’s why we returned.

We have always loved Chalkboard and recommended it to out of town friends. This visit, however, was a little disappointing. We understand it was brunch hour and difficult to know about the crowd, but we waited 30 minutes for our food to arrive. Our waitress Kaylee was sweet and came by once to let us know a large party had just put their order in ahead of us, but we had even made reservations for our lunch and it became irritating to wait for our food that long. Food was ok, but not super creative or what we have enjoyed at Chalkboard previously. We are hoping that this was just an anomaly and the kitchen just got slammed at the exact wrong moment for us.

What a disaster. Arrived early for dinner before a concert. Notified the waiter that we were attending the concert. At the same time another couple was seated next to us but a different waiter. Ours was non-existent, waited to get drinks, order, salad was late and no entrée. The other couple had drinks, appetizers, salads and entrees before we got a salad. By the time we needed to leave for the concert, the other couple had paid and left. We were still with no entrée.
If you have a deadline, such as a concert, do not go to the Chalkboard.

We went for Sunday brunch - it had been a few years since we ate here. I've always loved the atmosphere. The food quality was good, but not outstanding. I was disappointed with the service. Only one server plus the owner/manager were working, and they could not have been nicer people - I really liked them - but the actual service was erratic after a few more tables were seated. A place this nice should be on point for serving drinks, taking orders, delivering food, making sure food is satisfactory within a few bites, and checking regularly for empty glasses/refills throughout. Feeling neglected as a customer ruins the experience. I would like to go back and try other dishes if I knew they wouldn't be short-staffed.

Wow, what an unexpected and plesent surprise. Housed in the basement of a hotel blocks from Tulsa's nominal downtown, you would not expect much and you'd be wrong. Wife and I had a terrific meal, beef wellington, house specialty, and beef shotr ribs, both terrific. place is small and serivce is intimate. Basement location is peculliar, but they make it work. Worth the trip downtown.

We were in town going to see Blake Shelton and wanted some where close to eat and found this place. At first i thought it was going to be to fancy but turned out to be a great place,loved the food and the atmosphere, the people we're great And very friendly i made our reservation on line 10 min before they opened and got right in. One of the best parts about this place is it offers a trolley that took us back and forth to the concert so we didn't have to fight the crowed looking for a parking spot they dropped us off right by the door and picked us up right after didn't Have to wait long... i highly recommend you try this place out..

I was hoping and expecting a 5-star experience but was disappointed. We found The Chalkboard via Trip Advisor and chose it for its top ratings in Tulsa. We took some friends who were visiting us.

I had the Beef Wellington because it was suggested by our waiter as their most popular dish and what they are known for. The pastry was tough and thin. The pate was not noticeable. The beef was medium rare but not tender. I requested the mashed potatoes be exchanged for roasted small potatoes and butternut squash. They tasted as if they were pre-cooked and then warmed up.

The Caprese salad had a small piece of basil about 1.5 inches long...about 1/3 the basil needed for that size salad. Nothing notable or special.

We had the Espresso Creme Brulee. The top layer was an espresso gel substance instead of the burnt sugar signature texture. The Creme Brulee itself was cold. Our friends tried the bread pudding and it was nothing special.

The service was excellent.

I would not recommend The Chalkboard.

I wanted to eat more of the acorn squash bowl that my vegan chili came in so I would have cooking it longer. Everything was great and the local flavor excellent. We’ll be back.

Returned to the Chalkboard to celebrate our 31st anniversary at the restaurant where we had our first date. The bruschetta was just right and the swordfish was well-prepared and imaginatively presented. Nice wine list. The crowd was a little noisy and casual for a fine dining experience, but that is coming from an old guy who still thinks dinner in a white-tablecloth restaurant is a special event.

The Chalkboard never disappoints. Their menu is varied by season enough that we can return again and again without getting bored. There are also some classics that always please, like the Beef Wellington. As usual, everything was perfectly cooked, service was excellent and you just can't beat the ambiance. The staff is attentive but not annoying. We also enjoyed our perfectly mixed drinks. There's not a better place to eat in Tulsa.

Literally the best steak I've had in my life. No exaggeration. I love meat, but I didn't realize it could be THAT good. I highly recommend the Beef Wellington (they say it's their signature dish). The steak was almost as tender as the mashed potatoes it was sitting on top of.

The cheese platter was also pretty darn incredible. As was the wine.

I can tell they are big on serving food with "opposite" flavors on the plate. Sweet to complement savory, etc. As a result, I really experienced a lot of creative flavors I've never experienced before.

It was also literally the most expensive meal I've paid for in my life. Though I will remember the way that steak tasted for years to come.

Unfortunately, cant give a good review...Service was slow and took forever to get drinks and food (with the exception of the appetizer). After we ordered (4 people ordered steaks), we were informed they only had two steaks left...Wow, this was a Monday night and we were literally the only table in the restaurant... food came out lukewarm.

I am sure they can do better and am sure it wasn't their best effort... Disappointing
