This is our favorite dinner place with great food and great service and a relaxing atmosphere as well! This place is just a hidden gem that we truly love and have since we first started coming here. Another thing we like is they keep their wait staff so you get the same bunch of great service from their wonderful wait staff.

The only negative was the air conditioning was very cold and uncomfortable.

Family Wknd at OU. We took our son out to dinner and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of this restaurant. We loved everything about our experience but the pianist, Mr Kennedy, stole our hearts! He made the evening!

Excellent restaurant that has been a mainstay for locals for many years. The food is always excellent. The wine list is, however, somewhat limited. Service can be somewhat inconsistent when the restaurant is crowded. Overall, the food never disappoints.

Legend’s was fantastic tonight. Great food and ambiance. Piano player covered Sinatra to Billy Joel to Steely Dan. Our server Carrie was very friendly with great recommendations from the menu. She treated us like family. Very refreshing to have great food in a great setting served by great people!

This is the first time my wife has been to Legends and only my second time. We absolutely loved it! The food was prepared perfectly (and we're a bit picky on the temperature) and the service (Thank you, Carrie!) was outstanding!

We won't hesitate to go back and plan on it soon!!

Legends has been a fantastic Norman eatery for decades. They have great food, fantastic service , and a piano player on Friday and Saturday night plus Sunday brunch. My favorite is the Chicken Crepes with salad bar. Save room too for their outstanding desserts.

The food and service were more than we expected. By the time we finished our delicious meal my husband was swearing the water had some super filtration process done to it as well because it was delicious too! LOL. The piano music was beautiful.

We live in Texas but try to always stop by Legend's when we are in Norman or Oklahoma City. We always enjoy the food, the service and the ambiance. It is actually on of the first places my husband took me to over 40 years ago when we were dating.

We love legends but the food was not up to standard this time. Quiche was tasteless and breakfast burrito had a tortilla so tough you couldn’t cut it. Will always go back but definitely disappointed this time. It was my moms 93 birthday so expectations were high.

We frequent Legend's several times a year and my favorite has always been the Fillet of Horseradish Crusted Salmon; however, I have ordered it two times this year and the fillet is no longer "crusted" as in previous years. Each order has been inconsistent from a light somewhat overall dusting to a partial crusting, and not the previous standard. On this visit there was an abundance of oil with the entrée.

The Lemon Cream Layer Cake was two layer and I recall previously it being three and the serving was very small compared to the Chocolate Amaretto Cream Layer Cake.

Our server was less than engaged.

Couple's date night, Norman residents and regular customers. Wine: 2016 Louis M Martini - very good value. Appetizers: Garlic Lime scallop appetizer may be best scallops I've ever had - fresh and prepared perfect. Soup: summer chili - very good. Salad bar - always good quality; wife went twice. Entree 1: crab stuffed saute flounder - very good. Entree 2: vinegar pork (very good for me, wife not crazy but I felt only problem was panko crust a little soggy) Desserts: cola cake (of course) and blueberry lemon bread pudding? Both were perfect.

First time here. It was good, but delivered less than expected for the reputation. Ribeye steaks had a lot of gristle, but were cooked perfectly. It was an enjoyable evening, just not an amazing experience for the price.

The food was fantastic, though pricy. Went for Mother’s Day and had a reservation, however we were so crammed in next to another table it was hard to move. They took too many reservations. When you pay $25+ per person, it would be nice to not be so uncomfortable when you’re eating.
Service was fantastic also, but we won’t be back.
