We are from Illinois and always stop if we are anywhere near Tulsa. Great food, great staff. When our guests arrived one of them accidentally spilled water. The staff was wonderful dealing with clean up and resetting the table. Wine selection is excellent. We highly recommend Bodeans!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant as THE place to go for seafood. Hands down - it turned out to be our favorite restaurant in Tulsa. The service was uncompromised - professional, friendly and perfect. We live on the East Coast and travel quite a bit to the Caribbean. Bodean's halibut offered on the menu was just as good if not...

We had dinner here with a party of 6 recently. We were waited on hand and foot by the friendly waitstaff. The food was delicious and served in a timely manner. We have eaten here several times in the past and it's always great. Be aware, it is pretty pricey but you get your money's worth.

Oklahoma isn't near the coast, so getting fresh seafood is difficult but not if you dine at Bodean's. Their menu is. Extensive and their wait staff is helpful and professional. The dining room is always clean and inviting.

This restaurant never lets me down in any aspect. We are in Tulsa on business one time per year for two weeks & Bodean is always our first choice. As self proclaimed foodies & restauranteurs it is difficult to please us or get us excited especially when traveling to smaller cities, but Tulsa has some VERY good restaurants. Bodean has... More

For our anniversary, we chose Bodean, a Tulsa seafood restaurant because of its venerable reputation. Although Its exterior, situated in a shopping-center, is most un-remarkable, the inside is quiet, spacious and white tablecloth, candle-lit chic. Staff members were extremely gracious, including our waiter who definitely knew his fish. We had the lobster/shrimp bisque which was rich and delicious and a... More

This is a place that when thou walk in the door, you anticipate needing a bigger wallet. The table settings are very expensive looking, wait staff is fabulous. It has the feel and ambiance of $100 a plate meals but the menu pricing is a total surprise. The redfish dinner was $25. I asked if the menu was missing a... More

Their food is amazing. Their tomato confit aioli with their calamari is beyond amazing. What I didn't like is one of their pieces had its legs and the breaking went down my front. Their crab cakes are two to an order but they will break them into smaller sizes to share. I think it's probably better, because each bite of... More

Three of us recently visited Bodean's for dinner on a Sunday evening. We had reservations, so we were seated immediately. Our server arrived to take our drink orders quickly and then we spent several minutes looking at the menu trying to narrow down our entrée choices. We finally decided on the Cioppino, the salmon and the halibut. I chose the... More
