About Cafe 501 - Classen Curve
Cafe 501, a long-time favorite of Edmond epicureans, brings its colorful, European-inspired cuisine to the Classen Curve. From its humble beginnings as a "little lunch spot" in the heart of historic Edmond, 501 has poised itself as one of central Oklahoma’s most loved eateries. A second location, at 5825 NW Grand Blvd., features the original’s eclectic "French-Californian" approach to dining with a harmonious balance between a hand-crafted menu and a sophisticated yet casual atmosphere that is true to Oklahoma.
Cafe 501 has become synonymous with a discriminating taste in good wine and great foods. From rustic stone oven pizzas, to fresh, uniquely designed salads and delicious specialty sandwiches on house-made artisan breads, Cafe 501 offers tastes delectable enough for even the most discerning diners. When evening arrives, Cafe 501 changes from a buzzing lunch spot to a romantic bistro with soft lighting, an attentive full-service staff, and an expanded dinner menu.

Cafe 501 - Classen Curve Ratings and Reviews
Food was good as always but service was poor. Our server never returned to table except when asked. The very gracious lady clearing out plates got us a dessert menu. Water glasses never refilled. It was my friends first time at this location and I hope this poor service doesn't keep her away.
501 Cafe on Classen Curve is consistently good dining. My husband and I were just in and really enjoyed our meals. My husband is hard of hearing and you can actually carry on a conversation. They just changed their wine list and we had some really great wine at reasonable prices. Their slow roasted short rib is simply to die for with these wonderful mashed potatoes and carrots. I love every item on their menu.
While the food is fantastic the staff are the exact opposite. Our waiter/bartender was too busy smoking outside to bother to take any of our order. The manager and another waiter had to handle our table. You would think the manager would have checked on us after such a poor initial experience but she seemed to care even less.
The service was terrible. The restaurant was packed so we were happy we had made a reservation. It took 20 min for our waitress to check in and then she asked for our order, and I had to remind her we didn't have menus. Took another nearly 10 minutes to get beverage. Had to ask for straws, and silverware. She wasn't informed on the menu items and the preparation took awhile. I won't be back for lunch. Drinks after work is perfect and not too crowded.
The calamari was cooked perfectly, but not very well seasoned. The chicken cordon bleu, on the other hand, was so overcooked that I was hardly able to cut through it. Based on the dark brown color and hard texture it was clear that the chicken had been burned, but they served it nonetheless. Of the two servers who visited our table multiple times neither asked how the food was. Bottom line... I've had much better chicken cordon bleu from the freezer section of Homeland, and that's not saying much. They seem to have good reviews, so I'll probably give them another shot..... may try the burger or meatloaf when I do.
The food was awesome! I had the quiche with the small salad, and they both were delicious! It was a little busy given it was Sunday Brunch, so the service was a little slow. The yummy mimosas, and endless coffee helped with the wait though. I would eat here again!
