I had the opportunity to eat here many years ago during a business trip (20+). It made such an impression that I always wanted to return. Since I don't live in Tulsa I did not get that chance until recently. The French Hen did not disappoint. I had made our reservation through Open Table and we were immediately seated upon... More

Kambrie, What an incredible perspective and review! Thank you so much for taking the time to write down these thoughts and compliments on your (delayed!) return dining experience. We, of course, love to hear that our Chef took excellent care of you and you were pleased with the service. It is very encouraging to hear from you that we hit... More

The French Hen, once the best restaurant in Tulsa and in decline the past 10 years was reviewed by Scott Cherry, our local food critic with glowing reviews recently. My wife and I decided to give it another go----not a good move! Our waiter was very new and it showed. Nice kid, but no experience! Did not know soup of... More

Sorry to say our meal wasn't up to the standards of much long ago....food arrived late & lukewarm...the interior is truly showing it's wear and tear...and the return air vents in the ceiling really caught my eye because they were filthy....made me wonder how the kitchen was maintained.

Debby, Thank you for dining at The French Hen both now and in years past. We appreciate your business and take each guest comment very seriously. We apparently missed the mark in terms of timely delivery of your meal, and definitely understand the importance of excellence when it comes to a fine dining experience. In regards to your speculation about... More

Truly hidden, in a strip mall not visible from the street and all the surround stores around it do not scream "high dollar" restaurant. But it is worth finding and dining at. We took clients here for dinner. We tried three different appetizers, each were wonderful in flavors. We had one of our clients that was vegetarian, and our waitress... More

The place is nicely decorated. Great music. The layout is well done with. Ice flow and separation from the bar. Windows all around with an European feel. The staff was attentive. Food was fantastic. The chicken with risotto was great. I will return

My husband and I had lunch here recently. He ordered the pork chop medallion and I had a chicken entree. His pork chop was very chewy but my chicken was quite good. We shared a berry creme brûlée for dessert. Loved the crunchy sugar top and berries but the custard part was a little on the heavy side. The ambience... More

We dined here to celebrate an occasion and to see how the French Hen was doing since the new ownership took place. The last couple of times we had been here had been a little disappointing but the new owner has made improvements in food and service. We also purchased a groupon which helped with the cost. The dinner was... More

The French Hen is one of those really nice restaurants that never disappoints. The atmosphere is quietly comfortable but luxurious, the wait staff is professional, the wine list is interesting while not excessively expensive, and the food is innovative without being strange. We keep coming back.

After a two year absence, my wife and I returned to the French Hen. The decor is the same and the food as good as we remembered. We had the shrimp and crab cheesecake appetizer topped with lightly breaded onion rings that, along with the hot bread, was a great start to a fine meal. After salads, we had pan... More
