The French Hen is tucked away in a little shopping center on 71st. We visited on a Tuesday night; when we arrived at 7:00 it was a little empty but by 8:00 had filled up. We enjoyed the little complimentary "amuse bouche" presented at the start of the meal. We started with the fresh asparagus soup, creamy but not too thick, infused with the flavor of the vegetable. The grilled duck breast was served with two tasty sauces and cooked perfectly; served on a HEATED plate (this alone gives kudos to the chef, such an important touch.) We also had the Red Pepper Alfredo with chicken, which was perfectly spicy and a nice change from the traditional (it was a little too spicy for my 89 year old mother but she enjoyed it.) We ended with the tasty banana bread pudding. The owner was present and very solicitous; the wait staff very attentive. Great place for a special dinner and a pleasant evening.

Go to the French Hen! The food is as good as being in Paris. If you want to bless someone take them there. Reservations are a good idea.

I took a prospect to French Hen because it is close to his office and close to my lodging. So the location is good if you are in the Warren Place area of Tulsa. We sat at two different tables, both of which were wobbly. Why is it that nice old restaurants have such crappy infrastructure? The place was empty on a Wednesday at lunch, which was depressing.

The service was very nice - really liked the waiter. We each had a special. My guest had the special salad and I had the special catch. Both were wonderful and of nice, sane proportions. Frankly, I gobbled my food down.

I would rate the restaurant better, if it weren't for those annoying tables. I am not sure I would go back, either.

My wife and I recently returned to the French Hen for a wedding anniversary luncheon. The food and service are first rate and a made a great choice for a special occasion. The entrance is located on an interior courtyard of the Lighthouse Shopping Center and can be accessed from any of four directions. I find the most convenient parking on the west side.

The menu is French Bistro. The Fried Oysters on creamed spinach with Pernod made a delightful start and the Beef Bourguignon En Croute I had was excellent. My wife was quite happy with the Pan Seared Trout. The Espresso Chocolate Mousse was out of the world good!
