The drinks were perfect as well as the food. The steak tar tar is the best in Tulsa. If not the best I’ve ever had.

This was our firs visit here and we are so glad we tried it!! Our waiter, John, was OUTSTANDING!! He suggested that we try the chef's special which he called the Trifecta of Fajitas and told us it was a hit with everyone who had tried it, so we did. It was DELICIOUS and it was one entree that we could easily share and was very generous! All-in-all it was a wonderful evening of dining at one of our new favorite places! Thanks again, John, for taking great care of us!! No wonder Ridge Cantina is so loved! See you soon!

We had a wonderful evening at Noche, the service was outstanding. We asked the hostess if we could be seated at another table because the chairs were cushioned and not the wired, outdoorsy chairs. She couldn't because the 4-top was reserved and we were a 2 top. Minutes later she returned with a cushioned chair for my partner. It was really appreciated because he has back issues. That was just the beginning to a night of great service. It continued with our server who was friendly and helpful in addressing our food & drink questions/requests. She even surprised used with a complimentary corn bread dessert. We enjoyed our dinners. I had the marinated chicken fajitas and they were delicious - really enjoyed the smokey flavor. My partner was quite happy with the pork shoulder dinner. The portions are generous and we both left with a to-go box. The only negative is the noise level. The place was packed and with no defined ceiling the noise was almost too loud to hold a conversation. We'll be back.

Great waitress. Menu selections and preparations were unique to Tulsa, the Chef has a good thing going on. We will be back. Originally were sat at 2nd table that faced bar, the AC was blowing directly upon us, being it was 99° we felt it likely would not stop so we moved.staff was very accommodating. I suggest a cleat magnetic vent cover that you could direct air upward.
