Entrees not so good.
The duck lacked flavor and was presented like a school cafeteria's sloppy joes.
The Tuscan chicken was rubbery, tasteless and was served on dry pasta.
Pro: enchanting motif
Great service and atmosphere, food needs a lot of work. My wife and I went here for date night. The restaurant has great ambiance and is located in the center of the Brookside district. The service was professional. We started with a tomato and mozzarella salad. The menu specified ripe beefsteak tomatoes. When the salad came out, it had unripe (green) roma tomatoes. We sent the salad back asking for riper tomatoes. They sent us the same salad. We needed a knife and some pressure to cut through the tomatoes. We tried a couple bites. It had no flavor. We sent it back. We replaced the order with some broiled shrimp and prosciutto ham. This entry came out with the shrimp overcooked and the ham burned. We reluctantly ate it. Our entrees were not much better. Both of us ordered chicken dishes. The chicken tasted like it had been prepped earlier that day. This gave it a very dry and reheated flavor. The sauces and seasonings had no flavor and we could not taste any of the distinct ingredients of the dishes. We tried to be fair, but at this point we were completely disappointed. We did not stay for dessert. The bottom line is that we have been to many other $80 date night places in Tulsa with much better food.
Excellent atmosphere, delicious and different food, live guitar.. I was delighted with the menu and the intimate atmosphere. A great date place and interesting, upscale food.
