“The modern reincarnation of a Tulsa tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

In the old days (when i was a kid), the Chalkboard was that dark, classic place in the basement of the Ambassador Hotel that was expensive and had the most amazing beef wellington.

For years the hotel and the restaurant were closed. Since the reopening, the Chalkboard has rediscovered itself as modern, elegant cooking. It's become a new/old favorite in Tulsa. It has a nostalgic feel as it is still in the basement of the historic Ambassador Hotel. Even though it is no longer the old world steak house, it has retained it's high quality and elegance. Definitely worth a visit.

“Has Everything: Food, atmosphere, wine and superb service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I've eaten at the Chalkboard at least 3 times a week-lunch, brunch and dinner. Every meal is unique and favorable Josh and Shannon now run the upscale eating establishment. Most of the time I eat in the bar area. Everything is delicious. The Bloody Mary is to die for. The wine is of the best quality. I always feel like a special guest. When I walk in, they say "Hi, Mr. Cremin, welcome." If I'm with my best friend, Pat, they treat us as royalty. When you walk out up the stairs, you get to hear, in a very genuine voice, "Thanks for coming Jim."

“Everything Was Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

With a welcoming atmosphere and an attentive staff, The Chalkboard is the place to go for formal dining in Tulsa. I had the berry salad, which had the perfect blend of lettuce, berries, and walnuts. My husband had the beef wellington, which was cooked to perfection. After the main course, we had the delightful white chocolate bread pudding. Covered in fudge, it was the best dessert we could have gotten. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice meal.

“Elegant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

It was quite a while ago--but I remember the atmosphere was charming, and elegant! The staff was friendly and outgoing, and the food divine!
