On a recent trip to Tulsa, where my bride and I used to live, we had the pleasure of having supper with another couple at The Chalkboard. It is one of Tulsa's most venerable restaurants. And, in an industry where competitors flame out on a regular basis, it has true staying power. This was our first trip in 25 years.... More

We started with some very creative greens salad. Spinach and arugula was tasty and the organic spring mix was great as well. The bread they served was warm with a good butter mix. I had Ahi Tuna with asparagus that was excellent and my wife had seared scallops that were very good. The service was good and the waitress well... More

The atmosphere was very intimate and quiet. Perfect for a date night. The service was the best I have ever had in Oklahoma. I am very particular to the pace of service and The Chalkboard had it just right. We were never left waiting but we were not rushed either. After the meal we were not rushed from the table.... More

This is my 10th time staying at the Ambassador Hotel in Tulsa and dining at its in-house restaurant (The Chalkboard). The food is fantastic. Mellow atmosphere. Un-rushed, enjoyable dining experience either at the bar or at a table. Very knowledgeable, informative and friendly staff. I really like the GM - Tracey. Great guy. Highly recommend this place, whether you're traveling... More

I expected muchmore form this place great atmosphere cute setting slow service and very disappointing entrees. The appetizer was good service started out good and went dow from there. When one of the entrees could not be consumed they did remove it from the bill. Two visits in one First and last.

Very nice atmosphere here - dim but not too dark. Service was very slow. Appetizers were exceptionally small and expensive. They ran out of rib eye steak. Most food was Way over seasoned and vegetables grilled to charred. Dessert was the saving grace.

My first experience at The Chalkboard was back in the late 1980's. I loved it then, and it has gotten better with age; much like some of the fine wines on their menu. When the weather permits, dine outside, it's a great place to people-watch. May I suggest the Tuna Tartare for dinner? Good stuff. However, my favorite meals from... More
