    Default Cafe Cuvee

    I've been meaning to write about this wonderful addition to Midtown dining.

    Modeled after a French bistro, the atmosphere here (located at ground level of the Ambassador) offers a relaxed, Parisian feeling of sophistication.

    The menu is not very large but lovingly recreates many French classics, such as steak tartare, onion soup, Entreĉote au Poivre, steak frites, and tuna nicoise, to name a few. They also offer many off-menu appetizer options and entrees, such as the Dover sole, perfectly deboned tableside (this is an interesting experience).

    The wine list is what one would expect for such a restaurant, but they also offer many reasonably priced single pours and $5 draft Kronenburgs. The small bar area is cozy, with just a few stools wrapping around a marble bartop.

    Doting, knowledgeable service is the norm. The atmosphere is lively and talky (if even a bit loud at times) and pulsing with energy. French pop music wafts through the room, lending a feel of authenticity.

    If you previously dined in the Viceroy, you will simply be gobsmacked by the updated interior. It really resembles an intimate restaurant space you would find in Paris or New York. It also feels likes it's been there forever and is a perfect fit for the classy cosmopolitan environs of the Ambassador. Cuvee opened last August.

    On a recent dine, there were abundant tables to be had. For such a high-quality restaurant, there should be a wait virtually every night.

    This is one of OKC's best new dining destinations by far. Give it a whirl.

    Great review. We took a party of ten to lunch yesterday. The clients loved the place. None of them had ever visited.

    The cafe had some issues when it reopened. Hard boiled egg on the frisée salad. I see that Taylor has been replace by Kurt FLEISCHFRESSER on their website, maybe a second try, anybody know what happened?

    Their souffle game was also pretty poor after they reopened, hopefully they have that fixed now...

    They do. We had two and they were wonderful. Remember to order a souffle when you order your meal - good things take time!

    The interior work is light years better from when it was Viceroy. Service is outstanding and waiter said Fleischfresser is still involved and had a packed wine dinner recently with his food pairings. The boeuf bourguignon was excellent. Be advised wine list is exclusively French wines (No Oregon Pinot, no Argentinian Malbec, etc).
    Definitely a winner for OKC fine dining.
