When my husband requested we try out a new-to-us steakhouse for our wedding anniversary, I made a reservation at the Mahogany Prime Steakhouse in northwest Oklahoma City.
With a reputation for being one of the best steakhouses in Oklahoma, I knew we were in for a treat.
But I remained somewhat skeptical. In a historically steak-crazed town, could a steakhouse that prides itself on getting its beef from, well, Nebraska, hold up?

About Mahogany Prime Steakhouse
What you need to know about Mahogany Prime.
Consistently making the best-of lists for steakhouses in OKC and Tulsa, Mahogany Prime Steakhouse is the creation of Hal Smith Restaurants, a restaurant group headquartered in Norman that’s responsible for some of our favorite local restaurants like Neighborhood Jam and Louies Grill & Bar.
There are three locations in Oklahoma, and one in Omaha, Nebraska.
Downtown Oklahoma City
This is the sleeker (and sexier) of the two Oklahoma City locations. While both are great date locations, this one is a notch above.
Address: 145 W. Sheridan Ave., Oklahoma City, OK 73102
Northwest Oklahoma City
Located off the Kilpatrick turnpike, this is normally the land of chain restaurants, making this first-class steakhouse the nicest restaurant in the area by far.
Address: 3241 W Memorial Rd., Oklahoma City, OK 73134
Located across from LaFortune Park.
Address: 4840 E. 61st St., Tulsa, OK 74136

Address: 13665 California St, Omaha, NE 68154
Reservations are not required but are recommended, especially if you are going to be celebrating an important milestone or hosting guests. You can book online on their website or call the restaurant.
Our reservations were confirmed via phone call earlier in the day.
If you want to reserve their private room, call in advance. The earlier you can reserve it, the better.
There are several websites that erroneously refer to Mahogany Prime as having a business casual dress code, but I have been assured by the restaurant that this is not the case. There is no official dress code at Mahogany Prime.
Mahogany Prime Menu
The menu is full of steakhouse classics. Yes, there are twists and creative attempts, but overall the menu is a well-done version of what you would expect a steakhouse menu to be.
For food allergies, alert your server. Ingredients and allergens are not marked.
You can find a gluten-free guide to their menu on their website.
Vegetarian and vegan dishes are not marked on the Mahogany Prime menu.
Vegetarians will have an easy time combining sides, salads, and desserts.
Vegans should call ahead to ask and ask for more information about certain dishes that appear vegan but may need adjustments.
Mahogany Prime Steakhouse Review
Here’s a review of our meal at Mahogany Prime.
Seating & Experience
I have to say that the restaurant went out of its way to wow us. We arrived right on time for our reservation and were escorted to our table right away.
Once seated, we were presented with a card wishing us a happy anniversary, and a server delivered a small box of chocolates as an anniversary gift.
These thoughtful touches elevated our evening and made us feel special and appreciated.
What We Drank
We ordered a bottle of wine as well as sparkling water. For the wine, we selected an Italian Maso Canali Pinot Grigio. My husband also enjoyed a cognac with dessert.
The wine service was impeccable, as should be expected at a restaurant of this quality. The wine itself was dry and crisp.
What We Ate
To start, we ordered a Chophouse Salad. There’s something about a salad with bleu cheese dressing that just hits better in a steakhouse, and this one was no exception.
For our entree and sides, we had a Bone-In Filet, Spinach Risotto, and Chive Whipped Potatoes.
The steak and potatoes were perfectly executed steakhouse staples, while the spinach risotto was a nice surprise. Not experimental by any means, but substantial, delicious, and interesting.
For dessert, we split the Mahogany Cheesecake, which features berries, chocolate, and a caramel tuille. All elements of the dish were done well and tasty. It was exactly what I hoped for when I ordered it.
Overall, the dishes were classics done perfectly. We left happy and full with a bag full of leftovers to enjoy the following day.
What It Cost
Prices at Mahogany Prime are famously high, and they have received criticism for their wine list not offering more economical options.
For our meal and tip, we spent $249.
While this is three to six times more expensive than we normally spend for a night out for two, I don’t regret spending a little more (okay, a lot more) to enjoy a special night out while celebrating an important anniversary.
The Verdict: Should You Eat at Mahogany Prime Steakhouse?
If you love steakhouses and want to enjoy classics that are done well, then make a reservation. I would go back in a heartbeat for a special occasion or date night.
