Benvenuti's Ratings and Reviews
Our server, Katie, recommended a wine for my wife that, despite my wife NOT liking dry reds, paired so well with her food that she drank two glasses. In general, the staff was courteous, friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. Despite the volume of customers, the restaurant did not feel crowded and was not too noisy. The ambiance was romantic, which fit the occasion perfectly.
Upon arriving, we were promptly seated and wished a happy anniversary. At least three staff members congratulated us.
My wife and I decided to follow the full 5-course dinner, while sharing the appetizer and dessert. I would be hard pressed to choose a favorite aspect of the meal, while my wife says her favorite part was her final course (Filetto Rosso). All the food was prepared as we ordered it with no mistakes, and it was served promptly. The flavors were fantastic! Although I'm not overly fond of Italian food, this food was terrific to me.
I have every intention to return to this business in the future.
3rd time to this restaurant, and every time it is excellent. I always get the scallops because they are amazing! My daughter always gets a pasta, and always wonderful. We also love the nutella salad. There is no nutella in this salad, just a wonderful mix of ingredients. My only complaint is the wine is very pricey, very marked up.
The food was absolutely outstanding and the service was efficient and our waiter was very friendly and knew the menu very well. I would highly recommend Benvenuti's. My only complaint was they had televisions with the World Series on. I get it. It's the World Series but when you have older adults clapping and cheering it kills the whole ambiance especially when you consider the prices here (relatively high but worth it). I was there for my anniversary. If you want to watch the game there are sports bars aplenty.
Prior to going to Benvenuti's I had a different place that I went to for all my special occasions (my honeymoon dinner, my move-back-to-Oklahoma dinner, my pregnancy announcement dinner, etc.). But oh no. Benvenuti's wins.
Everything was wonderful. From the wine recommendation, to the bread on the table, to the dessert we took home because we were too full to eat. Our waiter, Geoffrey, was delightful and entertaining. I've never fallen in love with a restaurant so quickly. Yes.
Celebrated our wedding anniversary and wanted a nice romantic restaurant that we had never been to.
Everything was perfect! Austin made us the most amazing drinks to start our night. Tyler was the most attentive waiter, making certain we had everything we needed. Dinner was phenomenal! The Lobster Fazzoletti was by far the most amazing dish I have ever enjoyed.
This is deffinetly a place we will return to time and time again!
One of my favorite spots!! Every time I have a reservation the table is ready the second I walk in, the service is ALWAYS impeccable. I love the way my server can always suggest a wine for me. Their craft cocktails are also delicious. The food is always above expectations and I am always blown away by this restaurant every single time. I cannot day enough good things about it. I always leave here happy!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Norman. Previously I have always had an excellent experience, even when I was with a large party. Last night, we wanted to take my mother in law to the restaurant for her birthday. We were at the restaurant for over 3 hours... It took over 1.5 hours to get bread and well over 2 hours just to get our dinner. It was a LONG night and not a good experience.
I thought the food and service were excellent. We went for my father's 81st birthday and there were two very large groups nearby that were very LOUD which made it hard to visit. I was surprised they did not offer or bring out some sort of birthday dessert as I am sure our tab was pretty large although I did not see it.
My daughter, who is attending OU, wanted to celebrate her 21st birthday with a dinner and left me in charge of selecting the restaurant. I like to “shop local”, so I bypassed OKC and looked for a restaurant in Norman. After checking out online reviews and the company website, I decided we were going to Benvenuti’s. My selection did not disappoint. Everything was wonderful. Thank you Benvenuti’s for making my daughter’s birthday a memorable one.
Its a busy restaurant for Good Reason... Our servers London and Jeff were just stupendous.. they were so friendly and attentive... If not for anything I would just say they have amazing staff but the food is fresh and delicious too without doubt.. had a great time... if you dont plan and reserve well in advance you might not like the choice of tables.. i told them it was my birthday and they just worked it out somehow... great experience, would definitely be back!!!
The seabass was great again. Loved the lobster fazzoleti-not sure how to spell that. The lobster was cooked perfectly. Wedge salad with blue cheese crumbles great.
This was the first time our service was not good. I believe her name was amber or aubrey. Nice person but probably works at the local ihop. Did not know how to pour beer or serve wine. Just out of her element in regards to fine dining.
