I’ve been to the Tavern on a few occasions and have always had a good experience. My most recent experience takes the cake, literally! This is for all the staff, because they are what made the experience wonderful. I planned to celebrate our friends’ birthday and requested/reserved a table that was somewhat private. They gave us the perfect secluded table next to a window with it all set up before we even got there. The male host was more than helpful to take care of the cake I brought for the occasion. Our waiter, Tanner, was exceptional, very courteous and timely, anticipating our needs. It was such a wonderful experience and we were all very pleased with our service. Of course all of the food was wonderful as well! But more importantly, every staff member I encountered was so courteous and willing to help. Top notch staff!

Nice ambience. Bison tenderloin excellent, perfect medium rare, served on bed of yummy asparagus purée and served with roasted baby carrots. My friend’s home style dinner of three generous pieces of Southern fried chicken, buttered peas, and pimento cheese grits looked delicious, also. Food-wise my only complaint is that the softened butter served with the chewy bread had been mixed with honey which, although I know many love that flavor, it’s just not my thing. Our server brought me some plain butter, but it was too hard to spread. I recommend reservations. We were there early on a Sunday evening and although not crowded when we arrived, the place was nearly full when we left. I will be returning!!

My fiancé and I chose The Tavern for our Valentine’s Day dinner and we both really enjoyed it. It was our first visit so we had to try a bit of everything. The cheese and sausage to start was absolutely delicious! They also bring out complementary bread with herbed butter. I had the filet, which was perfectly cooked and my fiancé had the salmon. For dessert we shared and apple pie tartlet with sour apple ice cream made in house. All was fantastic. The atmosphere is very cozy but a little on the loud side. Service was attentive and friendly. We will definitely go back, and also want to try their sister restaurant Bull In the Alley, which is right next door.

We went to the Tavern to celebrate my birthday. We had a large group of nearly twenty, and our serving staff was phenomenal and kept up with everything that was going on while making sure everyone was attended to. Our food was phenomenal, and the service was incredibly timely - which was really impressive as there were so many of us there. Would definitely choose to eat at the Tavern again!

I have been to The Tavern numerous times. My experience (actually, my mother's experience) on October 22 was the first time I've ever had a negative experience. My experience differed greatly from my mother's, so my rating is an average of our experiences.

Mother had the omelet, which was definitely a miss for her. She complained that the omelet was improperly seasoned like the seasonings hadn't been thoroughly incorporated into the eggs. She said it seemed like each bite differed, with some bites being bland, others being extremely salty or spicy. Mother felt the salmon in the omelet was dry, and she commented that the spinach had been added without par-cooking ahead of time. She did not like this, even though this seems to be part of the current raw food fad. Mother complained that her coffee was weak, saying it tasted like "dishwater" (her words). She did state her accompanying breakfast potatoes were delicious. Mother acknowledged that this was the first time in multiple visits to the tavern that the food disappointed her. She was hoping this was just a one-off. Nevertheless, she won't be ordering the omelet again.

On the other hand, I could not have been more pleased with the Tavern Burger. I had heard raves about the burger, so decided it was time to try it for myself. The burger came just as I ordered it, medium. The melted stilton cheese was wonderful, as was the pretzel bun. This is a large burger, so arrive hungry! The burger was so well seasoned and flavored by the cheese that I did not add any ketchup, which I usually do. The burger was accompanied by shoestring fries, seasoned just right with salt and fresh rosemary.

The service was outstanding. The server took mother's omelet and coffee off our bill, even though we never requested this. The staff was genuinely concerned about my mother's disappointment.

Despite my mother's experience, I will be back. I had a delicious burger, and I believe Mother's experience was an exception.

We had an excellent evening at The Tavern. We started with drinks at the bar, while we waited for our friends. The bar was pretty full, but our bartender was great and very attentive. In the dining room our server was amazing! She gave us great suggestions and was very knowledge. The food was 5 star!! The ambiance really just pulled it all together. Such a great evening. We'll be back.

We arrived and it was a pretty slow evening. Great service, everything came out very fast! Between drinks, apps, and entrees we wee never looking around for our waitress. My husband got the goulash and it was exceptional. I hap the grouper, which was excellent but a little salty. The kale definitely helped balance it out.

My friend and I went here before a concert and I was excited because it had good reviews and a personal recommendation. I was disappointed by the cocktail, the food, and the service. The establishment itself has a cool vibe and I enjoyed the ambiance. We both ordered a bacon infused old fashioned and it tasted like bad, cheap whiskey. There was no indication that the whiskey was bacon infused nor that it was an old fashioned. We also ordered the Sunday dinner and I got the fried chicken with white meat only. The chicken was lukewarm and dry. The mashed potatoes tasted like they were from a cafeteria and I couldn't tell if the carrots were supposed to be firm or if they were just undercooked. This experience was disappointing and I will try something else next time I'm in Tulsa.

Steak was a bit overdone as I ordered medium rare. Served medium. I still ate the whole thing because it was delicious! For a $38 steak I thought it should have been cooked to order but would still recommend this place. Comped me my martini which was super nice.
