Benvenuti's Ratings and Reviews
Went there with my wife for Valentines day. Our server was "on it" we didn't feel like we where waiting to leave our order note did we feel rushed. Food was good a little more on the pricy side but the atmosphere and service that you get was worth the price.
Absolutely wonderful!! We went to celebrate Valentine's Day but would go here for any special occasion. If you choose wisely, you can get by with a bill for less than $50/couple. With that said, they also have some meals that you just don't see in most restaurants that could add to your bill...but they're worth it!!!
We absolutely loved this restaurant! Wonderful ambiance, excellent service and superb food. From the crab finger appetizer to the delectable desserts, the meal was just beautiful. Delicious salads, and the entrees were so well presented. A truly delightful dining experience where's the driving to Norman for!
We patron Benvenuti's a lot. They provide a really great consistent dining atmosphere. We made reservations early because of a local event that we knew would cause Benvenuti's to be packed. Sure enough the lines were out the door. However, I arrived a little earlier before my reservation time and the maître d worked hard to get a table ready. By the time the rest of my party arrived we were sat down in a prime location. In all, the wait staff treated us famously, the food was fantastic, and the price was very reasonable. My hat is off to "Raymond" our wait person. He was upbeat, patient, and fun. He provided lots of advice in describing the menu and helped to make choices. We definitely will be back! Thank you for a great night!
Pasta from hell dish had good flavor, but was drowned in sauce. And sausage in the dish was tiny pieces. Really over rated dish. Salads were average. Best thing was the bread. Glad we tried so we could cancel our 8 top for Valentines. Only Ribeye on menu was $70 Wagyu? At an Italian restaurant? Will not be back.
This was the absolute best Italian food I have ever had. Our experience was one of a kind. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was enjoyable. We will definitely be going back for another date night or special occasion.
The server was full of suggestions (amazing ones) I loved the wine he suggested for us! He told us about an “off the menu” appetizer special, we ordered it and it was delicious! He didn’t hover over us, but he was there to refill and check in on us regularly. We had a table in what I would call the wine room and it was perfect. We will definitely be going back again!
We came here at 6:15 before a 8:00 concert assuming we had plenty of time. Everything was very slow to come out to the table including drinks. We ordered and waited over an hour for our food. The manager was very rude and argued with us about when we had placed the order when we were just trying to eat the food we ordered and make it to the concert on time. By the time the food came to our table, it was already 8:00 so we had them immediately box it all up for us to take home. Between the 4 of us, we spent quite a bit of money at this restaurant, just to have our nice dinners boxed up and not even touched because they were so slow. We were appalled by the manager's handling of the situation. She was rude to us, didn't even acknowledge the fact that we had spent over $300 on food/drinks and didn't even get to eat it and then told us to enjoy the concert when we were leaving even though at that point it had already started without us and we didn't even get to eat our dinners! I heated up my expensive steak the next day and it was okay. I am sure it would've been good if only it had come to our table in a timely matter. If we hadn't been trying to get to a concert, we would've thought the service was slow but it wouldn't have been a big deal. But the fact is we were trying to get to a concert, we ordered as early as we could because of that, told our waiter and the manager the situation and still didn't get our food and were treated very poorly by the manager. We will not be going back to this restaurant ever.
The food as always was good, although my lasagna was burnt on the bottom the first time around, just wish they actually treated you a little bit when you specify its for a special occasion. We went for my husband's birthday and were seated at a table right in the way of the front door and next to where people waiting for tables sit, not to mention it was in the bar area. So much for a nice romantic dinner. I assume they don't actually read anything if you put in a request because no one acknowledged that it was his birthday either. I'm not even asking for anything free although with the prices they could definitely afford it but a simple happy birthday would have been appreciated.
First time dining in at Benventi's. Celebrating just 9 years together. We had an amazing dinner.
Started off with Calmari, followed shortly after Clam Chowder (Sherry sauce is magnificent) Caesar salad.my main course was a Rack of medium rare Lamb, he had Chicken Marsala. I had a merlot with my lamb. The service was great. The lighting was romantic. We also sat next to Berry Switzer which made it fun also, he saw us kiss and made the night better by saying "I saw that, congrats!"
We will definitely be back, also would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for finer dining with an energetic atmosphere. Nicer casual wear.
