We were visiting OKC and wanted to eat close to the Sheraton and saw some good reviews. We must have been in a different restaurant or the chef took the night off, as my experience was nowhere near the accolades others have stated.
Let’s get the good news out of the way. The décor and design of the space is great, very cool while relaxing and the tables are far enough apart for conversation. Likewise the staff, or should I say our server was friendly, attentive and if she did not know the answer to a question she immediately went to the kitchen to ask. So my two “A”s go to the décor and our server.
Unfortunately the food fell completely flat. For my appetizer I ordered the “Vine ripe tomatoes” with avocado, fresh mozzarella, smoked sea salt, basil, sherry vinaigrette. There was not one component that I would serve at my house; neither the tomatoes nor the avocado were ripe, and the mozzarella was overly dense and flavorless. I did not like this dish at all and should never have left the kitchen.
My entrée was in the same qualitative category. The “Seared day boat scallops” were served with a parsnip puree, red wine reduction, and topped with pistachio pieces and dried cranberries. I did like the parsnip puree but the scallops lacked any seasoning and the red wine gastrique was much too bitter and did not work at all with the scallops or puree. Overall this was a badly executed dish.
The server sold the desserts very well and I decided to try the “Apple pie” a la mode. The menu described it as “Better than Grandmas… we promise.” Well, add one promise broken to the dinner. The pie was served in an iron mini-pot and it was basically a lot of baked dough stuffed with a couple of slices of apples and topped with a dollop of ice cream. The dough was undercooked and flavorless, the three or four slices of apple were good and spoonful ice cream was OK.
Overall it was a very disappointing meal at Flint. With another night in OKC ahead of me, at least I know where I will not be eating.
