    This place is cute but every single person in our large group said their food was extremely over salted. I want to recommend this place because everything else was great, but the food was just not good and definitely not worth the price.

    The experience overall was good, but half of the items we requested from the bar they couldn't do because they didn't have the alcohol to make the drinks.

    We love coming here for date night. It never disappoints. The burger is always fantastic but this last trip the fries were too salty. The pork chop was on point, though. Service was impeccable as it always is.

    I love the Tavern. The food is exceptional and a few of the waiters really have customer service down to an art. I have been coming here for years and will continue to do so. The only critique I have is some of the waiting staff and the restaurant manager in particular behave like snobs to some patrons and sycophants to others. It’s Tulsa, not Monaco. Humble yourselves and realize that all business is useful to you—not just the business that has a few extra zeroes attached to it. 👍🏼

    We chose the Tavern because it was close to a concert we were attending. Ordered the special steak. It was very thin, tough and had the flavor of a piece of jerkey. My drink was good and server was sweet. I think they should just stick to burgers and drinks. Do NOT ordered their Special Steak. Seriously the worst I've ever had.

    My chicken entree had all the flavor of a brown paper bag. My wife's dish (duck pot pie) was good. Whiskey sour drink was way to "sour." Expensive for what we got. We will not go back.

    With only 5 choices for entree's, the menu was limited to say the least. Apple martini was ordered but they couldn't make one. Complete ala carte menu was pricey. Although the food was delicious the value was for dinner was not.

    Uncomfortable, inadequate wait staff, overpriced average food. Granted it was over 100 degrees outside and my friend did not like the available tables in the dining room, but the table where we were seated in the bar area was HOT!! With only the bartender to serve a fully seated bar/counter area, plus being responsible for our one table and making drinks for the entire clientele, he was overloaded with work and simply could not get to our table in a timely manner. That being said, he was professional, did the best he could under the circumstances. I am disappointed in the recent menu changes. There was a time when I could count on excellent food st The Tavern. It just didn’t happen this last time. And the bar was NOISY!

    I ate here with a colleague on a Sunday night, we were in town for business, and this was one of the better reviewed restaurant that was actually open on Sunday evening. My colleague, a vegetarian, found something on the menu she could order and I order a white fish recommended by our waitress. We started out with a cheese plate that can be ordered from a list of 7-8? cheeses. The ones we ordered, a blu, a brie and another cheese recommended by our waitress were tasty although I must admit I prefer a prepared cheese plate with all the trimmings while this was just three cheeses on a board with a side of bread. My colleague liked her dish and I, for the most part, enjoyed the fish main course although the waitress did ask if I would change anything and I told her I thought there was a little too much curry in the dish, but I was glad she asked and she genuinely seemed interested and said she would pass on to the chef. Our waitress was top notch and very professional. The ambiance is nice, low lit, and wasn't too loud. I would definitely return to The Tavern on future visits to Tulsa.

    For the amount of money we spent - over $250 - was very rushed. The waitress had zero personality clearly had better things to do. Other tables I noticed had much more engaging service. We will not be going based on numerous factors. And we were from out of town but visit Tulsa often

    Fantastically creative chef-inspired cuisine, skillfully prepared and confidently executed. Comfortable, knowledgeable service. Vibrantly energetic ambiance. This has the feel of an institution. Zero stuffiness and no pretension despite the ambitious gastronomic oeuvre of the chef. The Tavern delivers in every way. Easily one of the top five restaurants in Tulsa.
