Cyprus Grille for dinner Tulsa

We are going to Tulsa for a long weekend and are staying at the Renaissance. Has anyone eaten dinner at the Cyprus Grille? I saw a write-up and it sounded interesting and I saw a post about lunch.

I have another post regarding breakfasts in Tulsa and have gotten some great sounding recommendations.

  1. We had dinner at the Cyprus Grille last night and it was great. We were surprised that they weren't busier on a Friday night. I guess that their main business is from people attending conventions at the convention center attached to the Renaissance. We were told that this restaurant has consistently won honors as one of the top 5 restaurants for food and service in Renaissance hotels worldwide . The service and the food were terrific and the wine list has a variety of wines and prices. I ordered a very good Cabernet and it was only $6.00 for a glass (with a generous pour) I started off with the lobster bisque. It was one of the best (if not the best) lobster bisque that I have ever had. The presentation was great. They brought a bowl with garlic chive brulee, fire-roasted salsa topped by a generous sized lobster claw. After setting the bowl in front of me the waiter poured the bisque into the bowl. The flavor combinations and the different textures really worked. My husband had the gazpacho. It was served with a large scoop of crab salad on top. It too was delicious. We both had the lamb osso bucco, which was served over mushroom risotto and accompanied by a medley of squash. It was delicious. We wanted a light dessert so we split the gelato/sorbet medley. There were 3 generous scoops: one scoop of Basil gelato, 1 scoop of Blood orange sorbet and 1 scoop of Porter Peach gelato. Each was delicious. When our waiter placed the plate in front of us and told us what each was, I was a little hesitant when he said Basil gelato. However, it was my favority. It was creamy and refreshing with a just hint of Basil. The gelato and sorbets are made by one of the chefs and we were told that if you know that you are going to be eating at the restaurant you can call in advance and request a flavor.

    I would definitely go back to this restaurant.
