The Chalkboard Ratings and Reviews
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..
This has got to be the best restaurant in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The menu is creative and offers something for any pallet and any taste. The service and preparation is first class. It's a great find for anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion or just looking for delicious creative cuisine.
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.
The food tasted amazing and we had fantastic service. Waiters were very friendly and easy going. Not sure it deserved the price tag associated with the menu items. Ordered two appetizers and our meals (with one other person), and left satisfied with nothing left on any plates. Great date place.
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
Relatively small and quiet. The service was excellent and the food, although not cheap, was excellent. Delicious bread with an herb butter before the meal. Lamb lollipops (small lamb chops) for an appetizer and they were awesome. My wife had Beef Wellington which was fabulous. I had the filet, also delicious. Their beef is all Prime Plus so top quality. Had a dessert of lemon creme, vanilla creme, with a few berries and some meringue crumbles. We nearly licked the plate it was so good.
We went for my wifes birthday with her brother's family. We were very disappointed in the meal. My wife had the Beef Wellington, crust was soggy and undone, meat was prepared as she had requested but the sause tasted like ketchup with a little meat juce in it. I had the short rib(1) it was not tender, hard to chew, it came with gnochi(sp) which was raw dough and very gubby. This meal was only $123.00. We told the waitress but no adjustment was offered or given. Can't recommend. It was a Tuesday evening so maybe the kitchen was not their top tier but still not a good experiece.
I took my wife for our 45th Anniversary. The smell of fish was overwhelming when we entered.
I could not eat my entree the way it was prepared. My wife's filet was tough, for a $50 steak. Very disappointing. Had not been in a few years. Last experience before this was 5 star. This visit was very disappointing. The Ridge has taken the Chalkboard's spot as my choice for a fine dinner experience.
The ambiance is ok, a little cavernous and dated. The service was nice and friendly. The food was unfortunately less than average but was fairly pricey. I really love the attached Ambassador hotel and wish I enjoyed the Chalkboard but unfortunately it missed the mark for me.
The food was excellent. We ordered the flatbread entree, and it was excellent. I had the special which was Duck + Rabbit - I've never had Rabbit before, it was very, very good, perhaps one of my favorite meats I've had at a restaurant. My wife had the fish of the day, which also was very good. The only disappointment was dessert, we had the bread pudding which was ok. Our server was very friendly, but did forget to bring us bread when we asked, and also she never brought back our leftovers when she took them to box them up (we didn't realize this until we returned to our hotel).
I saw some reviews that the amount of food was small for the price; that's what you expect when you go to someplace like this, it's about quality over quantity. The price is too high for anything other than a special occasion for me, but I like to go to places like this on those special occasions. I would recommend this wholeheartedly.
The restaurant was nice, and the staff attentive. The food, however, was a big letdown for the price ($118 before tip). The appetizer was 'tea-cured salmon' for $15. The reality was basically a deconstructed tuna salad (but with salmon). There was a pile of raw purple onions, a chopped hard boiled egg, chopped dill pickles, a large smear of spicy mustard with capers, salmon, and crostini. They could have at the very least come up with a good sauce instead of straight mustard from a jar. The beef Wellington, $39, was very underseasoned (not a single grain of salt or pepper on the steak). It also hadn't been seared - just pale gray flesh. Also, the pastry was doughy on the inside. The garlic potatoes were gray and dried out. On the other hand, the scallops with cream of romaine purée, $38, was delicious. The creme brûlée, $7, was good. The 'berries and cream' dessert, $8, was ridiculous. For $8, you got exactly 2-eighth of an inch slivers of strawberry, 1 blackberry cut in half, 2 blueberries cut in half, and approximately 2 tbsps of cream/meringue. It was laughable at best. The creme brûlée had almost the same amount of fruit and whipped cream on top of it as the 'berries and cream' had altogether. And the brûlée was $1 cheaper. We will not be going to The Chalkboard again.
Premium ingredients that would justify the prices...but the kitchen simply lacked technique. The textures were mushy, the flavors were overwhelming and muddled rather than clean and balanced, everything was overly doused in sauces or butter (vegetbales). We had: crab cakes, mixed green salad, beef wellington, pekin duck, creme brulee.
For lunch I had the endive salad($12) to which I added a filet of salmon ($11). The salad came with a couple teaspoons of pate, a tablespoon of diced beets and about 6 endive leaves. It was a joke. The salmon was delicious and a normal portion size. Everything tasted great. But the portion size of the salad was ridiculous. I am a smaller size person, not a big eater. The server did nothing to inform me about the salad when I ordered and did nothing to help when I politely pointed it out after it came.
