I ordered the Steak Frites and it was very underwhelming. The staff was somewhat inattentive. I had the fried peach pie for dessert and it disappointed as well. The outside was nice and warm but the inside was cold.

Not your run of the mill tavern. Very well preserved decor with really good food. Can be fairly pricey for what you get. Would still recommend.

My wife and I came for our anniversary with high expectations based on a friends suggestion. We've eaten at their other restaurant "the bull in the alley" and really enjoyed it. We started with the cheese plate. It had 3 cheeses, some mustard seed spread and apricot preserves served with dry toast. 2 of the three cheeses were fantastic and the third quite bland. The toast overpowered them all. Recommend a thin cracker instead. The mustard spread was very bland.

We ordered the steak frites, and the steak was properly cooked to medium rare with herbed butter. I found it good, but not exceptional and somewhat pricey given that it was served with frozen fries and ketchup ($36).

We finished with the hazelnut torte. It was decent, but clearly not made in house as was slightly frozen.

Overall it was just okay, probably not something we'd do again for a special occasion.

We're so sorry you had a sub par meal at The Tavern. With our large staff of highly trained chefs we strive to serve amazing food every time! It's very disappointing to hear you weren't blown away. I'd love to invite you to a complimentary Chef's Table experience in our kitchen with a tour so you can see how much love and care goes into each dish (and our non-existent freezer space). Please e-mail lindsey@taverntulsa.com.

We had a great service--he got us in and out quickly. The steak was cooked perfectly and I loved the fries! They were called fritos or something similar, and were like fried shoestring fries with salt. They were probably the best fries I've ever had! The only thing we did not love is that the menu was quite limited. It may have been because we went at an off time--it was 3pm when we stopped for lunch--but I felt they did not have much variety for food offerings.

The mac and cheese and popcorn are so good! The burger is very tasty and the overall vibe is fun. Great food and scene!
