Chocolate creme brulee, OMG

The French Hen is an old Tulsa institution, but that doesn't mean they've become lax in their offerings. This charming little restaurant has some of the best French food I've ever eaten.

I made reservations for my husband and I around last November for Valentines Evening. Somehow our reservation did not make it on their books. When I called Valentines Day to confirm our reservation they said they did not have one for us and would I like to speak to the owner? I said yes.... I was so upset and and... More

Beef Bourguignon En Croute... ... with crimini mushrooms, pearl onions and lardons. Absolutely delicious. The fried onions ladled atop gave it that balance in textures that was crunchy and succulent at the same time. The atmosphere is perfect for a business lunch or just lunch with friends. At night, if you're wanting a romantic dinner with amazing food, this is... More

Very good in all respects. Nice setting; fantastic seafood cheesecake app; osso bucco was very good but served over pasta instead of risotto; brown trout was very nice; creme brulee to finish.

Last year, we were spending a family weekend in Tulsa and I had heard about French Hen. French food is a serious weakness for me. I visited the website and two things occurred to me. 1) I HAD to eat here. 2) It would NOT be fair to their other customers to dine in that atmosphere with a two year... More

We ate here last month and found the food to be fantastic. The duck is particularly good. I recommend the place if you are in the mood for a French meal in Tulsa. The ambience is very nice as well.

We moved away from Tulsa in 1998. At that time The French Hen was one of our favorite restaurants. On a return visit we were delighted to learn that the French Hen was still in business. We set up a business luncheon with our accountant and were hoping for the best. And, the best is what was delivered! We had... More

French Hen is one of the very few French restaurants left in Tulsa, and French is our favorite. We try to get by there a couple of times a year, though we live in Tahlequah and that's often difficult. The cocktails are good and comparatively inexpensive, and the ambiance perfect. We've never had a bad meal or bad service. I... More

A quaint, cozy place. My first choice in Tulsa. The wine list offers a wide selection including several good choices by the glass, all reasonably priced. An excellent baguette with generous butter came promptly. A bon bouche of prime chicken salad on crostini with a balsamic reduction teed up my palette. The fried oysters in creamed spinach appetizer was listed... More
