  • 1st wedding anniversary celebration
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/16/2014
    The restaurant is very impressive on my one year anniversary I was seated in the bar section. I was highly offended. I was moved to a nicer seat downstairs. I enjoyed the soft music in the background but the noise level was at a high. My husband ordered stuffed mushrooms and the supervisor took his plate away as our dinner arrived, he wasn't finished with his food. The server was the best part of our visit he made me feel valued, appreciated and his service was above excellent. I would go back because of the service provided.The food quality and portions for the prices was good. However I would go back to visit on a special occasion. The wine was not over priced and was delicious as we enjoyed it with our meal.

    Had reservations for 7pm, arrived early but even though we ordered PRE made food, prime rib and chicken pot pie, it took longer than 90 minutes to receive our food and when the food was delivered, both plates were Luke warm at best. Our waiter was very pleasant and professional, I believe the kitchen was the reason for our slow service. A table that was seated 30 minutes after we were, were actually served before us! Sent chicken pot pie back and had it warmed up, food was good but at the two hour mark we are starving and fed up. Could not get any reservations at any other fine dining spots on Bricktown except at this restaurant and the terribly slow kitchen and cold food might be the cause. The waiter said other cold meals had occurred.

    My husband and I ate here for our 1 year anniversary. The service was absolutley fantastic and so was the food. The server was very attentive, had a great attitude and did everything she could to make sure our experience was a great one. The food was outstanding from the appetizers to dinner and dessert. I will definately return to and will recommend the retaurant to all of my friends.

    This was my first time, and I thought I was getting a quality restaurant. Imagine my surprise when fellow diners were in jeans, shorts, and flip flops! I don't know why my date and I bothered to dress up. Moreover, why bother with reservations and valet parking if you're allowing a casual dining experience. Other diners included some sort of drunken sorority party and a bachelorette party. My impression is that we were all first-timers, and that the restaurant caters primarily to teenage boys trying to impress their prom dates and couples celebrating an anniversary. The food is as underwhelming as the clientele. Nonna's favorite is spaghetti and meatballs, for heaven's sake!

    We dined out upstairs. Our waiter gave us recommendations for wine to pair with our dinner. The food was amazing. We all ordered something different. They had live music, which was great and we were still about to talk at our table with ease. Dinner ended with our own fireworks show from the ballpark. It was a perfect ending to a perfect evening.

    Our entrees took an extremely long time to arrive. The server was very nice, but she continued to forget refills or little requests we had. There were 3 separate occasions that we had to re-request something. I asked for a coke when my food came out. I was done eating my entree by the time she brought it to us. She had the excuse that there were no clean glasses. I find that hard to believe as the restaurant was not packed at all. If it was true, she could have given the courtesy of coming to tell us that the wait for the drink was going to be longer. And, if it was true, does a restaurant of that caliber really not have staff on hand on a friday night to handle the dishwashing? She did end up not charging us for the coke.

    Business dinner here was perfect. First of all the server was well trained, knew the menu and it's ingredients, and managed our meal experience perfectly. Second, the entree's were well prepared and their presentation impressive. Both the fish, chicken and steak entrees were tasty. Third, the desserts were presented as a WOW at the beginning of the meal, with fruit coming from Nonna's farm. The apple pie was the best we ever, and we noticed most of the tables around us ordered it too. We will be back soon. Never disappointing here!

    My fiancé and I celebrated our engagement at Nonna's and we had a great experience. Amazing food, great portions and very romantic atmosphere. Service was really good as well, however my only knock against it was that they never asked for a drink order. They brought water right off the bat, then the server came and immediately asked for a food order. Not a big deal, since we didn't get other drinks anyway. Also, they ran out of chicken pot pie, which was disappointing but understandable considering they make everything from scratch. Their homemade chips are sooooo good! Overall, I would recommend Nonna's for a special occasion (or any occasion!).

    Looking over the confusing menu notebook, we asked our server to bring two of us a glass of the "house" Chardonnay and another a Moscato. The "house" Chardonnay proved to be $18 per glass on our bill. When our drinks arrived, one of the Chardonnay drinkers said that this was not Chardonnay--too sweet. The server assured us that it was and asked if we wanted to see the "wine person". The wine person never appeared but we figured out one of us had been given the Moscato by mistake. I ordered the pan-fried tilapia ($28). Very tasty but very costly. One of my friends ordered the fried butternut squash ravioli ($21) which was a little dry and chewy. We thought it was good food but terribly overpriced!

    We enjoyed our anniversary dinner in June and returned for a birthday celebration. The bruschetta was very good, as was the goat cheese salad and Nonna's Favorite. The Pot Roast was, however, a big disappointment. The vegetables on the plate consisted of potatoes (good), a little roasted onion and 2 slices of carrot. The meat, served in a Staub cast iron pot, was floating in grease - no gravy! The server, as before, was polite but not well trained for this type of a dinning room.

    Waitress knew nothing about her job - neglected the table for long periods of time, was not familiar with the menu or the bar offerings, and at the end of the meal, put a dirty plate from another table on top of my partially finished dinner so I couldn't even take the remainder home. Food was salty and my chicken was undercooked. Restaurant was so dim it was difficult to read the menu and at 2 other tables I saw patrons using their flashlight app to read it. I can't believe this is supposed to be one of the better restaurants in OKC.
