Stopped for lunch on a Saturday. Other than the less than average service the experience was great. The view from the dining room is out over the gardens and the Osage hills in the background. We both had Caesar salad which were great but served without the advertised croutons. When I asked the server about it she looked bewildered but the said she would check. Turns out they had run out and were making more. Eventually we got them. Then the server showed up at our table with the entrees while our salads were half eaten and stood there. Apparently it was our job to make room at the table. I have to chalk that up to inexperience. I sure hope so anyway.
But the food was very good. The salads were crisp and tasty. I ordered the short ribs, took one bite and asked the server to have the chef come out if he had a chance. I love short ribs, have made them dozens of times but never tasted anything like these. There was an ingredient I could not put my finger on. The chef was gracious and told me the secret to his recipe and how he prepared the dish. Coffee in the braise was the secret. Never would have guessed. These ribs were melt in the mouth tender and the broth outstanding. My wife had trout with a crayfish and bean ragout. She said the fish was great but the ragout a bit bland for her taste. Overall a pleasant experience and worth a visit of in Tulsa.
