Cafe 501 - Classen Curve Ratings and Reviews
I've dined here numerous times with great service and food was awesome. My last visit was very disappointing. Upon arrival we weren't greeted in the reservation line so I flagged down an employee. She said there was no table available! She found a table with a waitress that wasn't having a good day! Lunch was very marginal and I had to ask for silverware. We all have bad days but I feel the whole restaurant was struggling the day I treated my family.
This was our first time there. Everything was perfect. My husband took me for Valentine's Day. The waitstaff was extremely friendly, atmosphere was very comfortable, food excellent, reasonable prices. The only negative was that they ran out of Chocolate Decadence cake. Only wanted that since it was Valentine's Day, otherwise would not have ordered dessert. We will be back!!!
Café 501 in Classen Curve is the best blend in OKC of classy atmosphere, great food and service, great value/prices for the quality of food served, and a menu that has so many great food choices that the only problem here is deciding which items to order. Take a look at the online menu and you will see how there are multiple favorites on the menu for tastes of every kind.
My husband, daughter and I joined our friends at the table, we were running a little late. The server we had didn't ask us what we wanted to drink. I had to ask for a water thinking she would ask my husband what he wanted to drink and she didn't. She walked away so when she came back I asked for another water. She didn't bother to ask what isn't daughter wanted so I let her drink out of my glass. Then when we ordered or food she didn't ask what sides we wanted. Which we didn't know until we got our food that we would even get a side, and everyone had different sides with their sandwiches. Honestly, I don't think you could pay me to go back.
came here for our usual after church brunch. there was a wait but had reservations on here so we got right in. The service was great overall, a couple times the server was a little MIA but as expected for a busy brunch spot on Sunday. Food is outstanding, lots of great choices and prices pretty reasonable overall. Definitely our favorite consistent brunch place and lots of really great items on the menu. would (and do) recommend to lots of people.
The chocolate mousse cake tastes like something I could buy at Walmart, it was supposed to have a raspberry sauce, instead we had something that tastes like Hershey's syrup.
I got the bacon wrapped meatloaf, it comes with BBQ sauce, which is actually ketchup. Food was ok.
Waitress had a tough time keeping the drinks full, this is a big deal to me, maybe not to some..
Had 8:30 reservation and walked in and was immediately told we needed to order in 10 mins bc kitchen was closing...in open table people can make reservation up to 8:45 or 9pm. I would suggest they change this so you don't make customers feel rushed. Don't know why you offer reservations at this time only to tell guests to hurry and order. Not happy about this experience and I usually eat here all the time for lunch.
Don't go on a Saturday near 11 if you want breakfast. Most comparable restaurants serve Saturday brunch until 2, we ordered right at 11 and were unable to get brunch, yet 30 minutes later see eggs being delivered around us. The morning crew management was not very friendly. I'm not sure what has happened to the Classen Curve location lately, but only 1/3 of the tables were full and it's usually packed. There are definitely better choices available now to not at least be a little kinder in attitude to hold on to the customers they have.
