    Ludivine is an OKC gem, and the food is amazing. You will love the ever-changing menu and fantastic nightly picks. The restaurant is intimate with a great bar in the back. The service is hit or miss, but the food makes up for any discrepancies in wait staff demeanor. Highly recommended!

    My wife enjoyed our dinner very much, so let's start there. The ambience is nice, the service is very good. The menu, based on what's available locally, is eccentric and appealed to my wife, who is a more adventurous eater than I. What she found unique and adventuresome, however, felt pretentious to me. As I see it, a flap steak is still just a chewy, cheap cut of beef even if you park it atop a sunchoke puree. I like sausage -- I LOVE sausage -- but I don't want to know that it's made from sweetbreads, which stopped me from ordering the pasta dish. My wife would go back on occasion, but my tastes are more mundane and for the same price I'd be happier at Mahogany or Rococo.

    The food was good, pricing was not for what you get. We got the quail, it was very tough. Most restaurants we have to split because the portions are so big, but this was the opposite. I wouldn't say it was small, but don't expect to split a meal. The service was good. The ambiance was great, except we sat right next to the front door, so every time it opened I froze. Had to wear my jacket most of the evening. All in all it was an okay experience and i wouldn't mind trying their brunch.

    I absolutely love Ludivine. My husband and I were excited to bring our out of town guests here to experience something truly unique. Our servers were very attentive and friendly with our group. They did a great job of explaining and recommending dishes and pairing wine. The only disappointment of the evening was one of the special's being sold out before we ordered. The food was phenomenal and we appreciated that the staff did not try rush us out. Another wonderful experience! We will definitely go back and highly recommend Ludivine.

    I found this restaurant by accident and took my girlfriend there for a nice night out. The restaraunt itself was nicely furnished and decorated. I especially liked the open kitchen where you could watch the chefs. The service was very good with things provided as soon as you needed them without being obtrusive to our conversation. The server was extremely knowledgable about the menu as well as the specials. When we got our food, everything we had was delicious and was obviously prepared by chefs who are great at what they do. Their menu was adventurous without being over the top or intimidating. Overall, this was my favorite dining experience I've had in OKC. Highly recommended!

    Our bourbon club had a great evening out at Ludivine. They were accommodating for a mid-sized group, and super patient with us, allowing us to move tables when a few in the group were chilly bc of the air flow. We loved the old-fashioneds, in particular, as well as the bison ravioli, pasta special, and the brownie as well as blueberry pie desserts. Thanks so much!

    The place is amazing. Decor, music, ambiance and service are top notch. The food was outstanding... my only comment/discomfort comes from the fact that the bar shares the same menu as the restaurant. This wouldnt matter if there were unlimited supply of dishes available for both rooms, reality is that there are not. Seems to me its unfair for people that make reservations to see special dishes unavailble since people from the bar already consumed them all on a first come, first served system for the night's specials. This included desserts as well. Besides that awesome place and definitely looking forward to more visits... this time with earlier reservations to be able to appreciate the full range of their menu.

    This is a tough review to write. I liked Ludivine; it just didn't live up to our expectations on this night. Venturing outside our comfort zone, we tried the Roasted Bone Marrow. It was amazing. I struggled with the texture/consistency, but really enjoyed pairing it with the local condiments that bring out various flavors. The disappointment came in the Oklahoma Wagyu Chuck Steak. It was tough and a bit gristly. It was cooked and presented nicely; just not up to our expectations and the topping, while pretty, over whelmed with red peppers.

    I had heard Ludivine raved about prior to our visit and now I see why. The menu was richly imagined with the creativity of the dishes off the hook. Since it is farm to table, the menu changes quite often depending on what was available locally. Unless you're up for a unique, cutting edge culinary experience, don't do it. As we sat at the meal with friends...we automatically new which acquaintances would get it and which wouldn't. Not for everyone, but for the foodie hounds out there..one of Oklahoma's very best experiences.

    We had a guest visiting from out of town, and of course we took her to Ludivine! The night started out with delicious cocktails, great service from the bar, and a rundown of ludivines unique concept for our out of town first timer from our waitress. The chefs had beautiful options to choose from on the menu, including fresh fish from Montauk, NY where our guest just so happened to be from! The manager was attentive and continued to make sure we were happy and well taken care of throughout our meal. Everything was unique, delicious, seasonal and fresh- right down to the homemade blueberry ice cream for dessert. Thanks Ludivine!

    My wife and I went to Ludivine for our anniversary dinner. The food was the best I have had in a very long time. The service from our waiter (Benjamin-Christian) was flawless and definitely contributed to the dining experience and what we ordered (including pairing wine for my wife, and beer for myself). This is now the top of my list in Oklahoma City due to the price-to-value, the freshness of the food, the uniqueness of the selections, and the service. Ludivine is not a steakhouse and it does not have an ordinary menu - but that is what makes it wonderful. Can't wait to go back. Still day-dreaming about the bone marrow appetizer.

    We decided to try a place we'd not experienced for our 20th anniversary; and we were very happy with Ludivine. The staff treated us so well; and with a small message regarding our milestone during the online reservation process, the restaurant ensured our evening meal was memorable. An intriguing part of the restaurant is the ever changing menu; and the options are delectable. From the appetizer to the main course, we found every course exquisite. Our bonus was a complimentary dessert tray in which we sampled 5 wonderful choices. A very nice gesture to help us celebrate! For a special occasion or enjoying a finer dining experience in OKC, let Ludivine serve you!
