It was an enjoyable evening, however I found the restaurant to be a little louder than I would generally prefer for a one on one date.
All around awesome! Waiter was just excellent, bartender was terrific and food was delicious. Tip: try the crab-claw appetizer. You won’t be disappointed. 😋😋
Great dinner with friends. Lived up to It’s reputation.
My wife and I had dinner and drinks here to celebrate our 33rd ANNIVERSARY. The service and food was excellent and the staff was very knowledgeable about their drinks and the food menu.
From the hostesses, wait staff, to the food/chef....This place is top notch! Truly the best in Norman. Hands down.
Service was slow, place was crowded and food was average.
This restaurant never fails if you are looking for incredible food, incredible service, and fun ambiance !
Our group reserved the big private room months in advance for Mom's Weekend which had been confirmed many times. When we arrived there was a considerable wait to go in and when we did we met two tables full of other diners. It was awkward to ask these diners to relocate and really not our responsibility. One group politely moved into the main area with no fuss but the other table not so much. I later learned that table's full tab was placed on my bill. My bill was over $300 for my son and me including 2 bottles of wine the other party drank @ $50 per bottle. The restaurant should have paid for their meal as it was the restaurant's mistake. The upshot was a chaotic beginning with many of our group standing around with no place to sit.
As always, fantastic! Consistently the best food and best service. It keeps us coming back again and again. We waited a bit for our reservation because they were completely full but its worth the wait. Our server Logan told us that every dish is made one at a time from scratch. I believe it because its so darn good!
Always fantastic. Consistent. Best service! Great wine selection. Our favorite place. Also got to see some actors that are in Norman filming The Turkey Bowl. Apparently they really love it here too!
We attended your establishment for our 13th anniversary and the service and food were exceptional. Staff and manager were very friendly and we will be returning. Would recomend to a friend or family member.
I celebrated my birthday with a friend and my family.
Food was decent. Overpriced for the portions but flavorful. Atmosphere was great and the wait staff are amazing.
We have eaten at Benvenuti's a number of times and have always had a wonderful experience. Walking in the door, you see wonderful décor, a most friendly staff and outstanding service from the minute enter until the time you leave. The food and presentation are outstanding.
We have recommended Benevuti's to friends and family, and extend an invitation to anyone coming to the small downtown of Norman, OK. for 5 star dining.
Food always good as w had the shrimp sriracha and the cypress as appetizers and the crab cakes and veal parmesan as entrees. Server was ok but way too hurried as if he was in a hurry... because we weren't.
Allison was an outstanding server. We enjoyed the evening
Celebrated my husband’s birthday. One of our favorite spots. The crab cakes and the rack of lamb were both fabulous!
The best Italian cuisine in Norman. Fresh made pasta, great menu selections and wine. Always good food.
Excellent food and service! Veal was very good and a large portion. But, desserts and after dinner drinks were very creative and delicious!
Fabulous as always! Started with the delicious crab claws swimming in garlic butter that has a little extra spice added with red pepper flakes. There are plenty to share, and don’t forget to use the bread to get the scrumptious sauce! We split a Ceaser salad that was crisp and flavorful. My daughter had the mushroom rigatoni in a pink sauce, parmigiana and truffle oil which she loved. I had the wonderful chicken Marsala that had a unique twist as the breast was stuffed with spinach, prosciutto and smoked mozzarella. It was marvelous! One of my al-time favorite restaurants.
As always, good food. But they were packed, and we (party of 4) were seated in an uncomfortably noisy side room. Service was very slow, probably due to how busy they were. Probably we will return, but if we do we will choose our table more carefully, or go somewhere else if we can’t.
As always this place delivers. Excellent food and great service. It's my "go-to" restaurant when I am in Norman.
Lindsi was professional and knowledgeable and quick to come back with anything we needed. She was amazing!
Absolutely wonderful as usual
Excellent service and great food
Excellent food, attentive wait staff. Highly recommended for special occasions/date nights!
My 5 year old daughter and I went to Benvenuti's prior to our Daddy/Daughter Dance. Our waiter, Raymond, was extremely personable, attentive and knowledgeable. He was very sweet to my daughter (who became smitten with Raymond) and took great care of us. The food was very good (as always)...
Benvenuti's remains my favorite restaurant in the Oklahoma City Metro area.
As always, great food and service.
This restaurant had been recommended to us by a friend. We live in North Carolina but visit Oklahoma quite often. The food was AMAZING!!! I had the margherita pizza and my husband had the lasagna. Both of the dishes were big enough that we had plenty to take with us. Nick was our server and he was very friendly and very attentive. Plenty of parking nearby, so that's not a problem, and in a very nice area of downtown Norman. We will definitely be back when we're in Oklahoma!
This place is a gem. The atmosphere is very cool in an old building and dark lighting! It was packed on a Wednesday and we waited a minute to get a table but it was worth it! The food is spectacular. I got a pasta from the Chefs Menu and got the crab cakes as an appetizer. To die for! My boyfriend had the lamb. Also fantastic. Service was great! Wine list is best we have seen in a long time!
Our server Jake was attentive and the food was delicious!
Great food, very attentive staff, highly recommend!!
We got to the restaurant early and was seated right away. Our food was excellent. I will definitely return and bring friends!
Food was great!! Jake was a great server!
The mussels were very good due to the sauce. The veal was ok. The pigs and scallops were bland and disappointed my husband. Our table was in the lobby and felt very unromantic. It was our anniversary. Our waiter was excellant. Great wine list if you know what all those wines are.
We want to go back during the week and share a pizza, mussels, and salad. I would like to try some of the pastas since I've heard good things about them. The food we ordered was overpriced. The crowd was OU/Norman elite and felt pretentious. I would recommend not going on a weekend. Buy the pastas, salads, and pizza. Don't order the tiramasu-way overpriced and a very small serving, although the taste was ok..it was mainly whipped cream.
Great birthday celebration! Logan provides excellent service. The food was outstanding. We had the veal parm (which was bone in!), the filet (which you could cut with a fork) and the meatballs (which melted in our mouths). I could go on and on. From the cocktails to dessert, everything was perfect. We can’t wait to go back.
This was our first trip and I was looking forward to it because I had heard such good things. I expected it to be more pricey than your typical restaurant, but the price vs the quality didn’t match up in my opinion and the service was subpar to put it politely. It wasn’t bad, but not worth the money and the service was severely lacking, especially considering the premise of fine dining
The hostess sat three couples who came in after us, which we thought was really rude. We sat really close to another couple and it was almost like we were at the same table. No privacy whatsoever! Food was delicious though.
Very good food as usual. The service was excellent as was the pacing of the meal. Try the to Du Creme and the delicious coffee make any meal special.
