The duck was so good with the potatoes cooked in duck fat with cream!!!
Not a diet dish!
The artichoke dip was the BEST!!!
They still had the place decorated for Valentine’s Day for those of us who missed it due to the winter storm.
Thank you for thinking of the Lovebirds!!!

Even during C19, they continue to provide excellent service and food. It was a pleasure to have our annual Karnes Family Health clinic Christmas dinner at Legend's for the 3rd year in a row. Will be back next year.

Legends has always been our favorite place but since Covid we haven't been back since the shutdown in March and it was so wonderful to be back for my Birthday and see that everything is back at Legends including safety procedures and the same outstanding food and service that we have always expected in the past! This is truly a rare gem that checks all of the boxes for us.

We had the crab cakes and blackened steak salad. The salad drowned in dressing, and the crab cakes were marginal. The steak had a good flavor.

Seasonal menu was delicious. Salad bar has good options. Dessert was decent. Bartender is top notch. The tenderloin filet with marrow butter was delicious. My friend enjoyed her wasabi salmon. A great place for a nice meal in a pleasant and polished atmosphere.

Did not like their brunch menu but we tried it. Lunch and dinner much better and you can still order that. Love their salad bar. They sat us right next to the piano and we had to ask them to move us which they did very hard to hear when you are that close. Music was nice from a distance.

We had a date night there. It was very nice. Nice meal with a good environment. Long time piano player so it makes for a pleasant experience. Food was good. Deserts are awesome. Great salad bar.

I would definitely recommend it to others looking for a nice date night or to celebrate a special occasion. Speaking of special occasions, the couple sitting next to us was celebrating their 34th wedding anniversary. What makes it even more special was the fact they celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary at Legends 33 yrs ago.

That's just the kind of place Legends is. It's been around a long time so it's nice to have that bit of nostalgia as well.

Legends is still one of our favorite restaurants in Norman. The horseradish crusted Salmon and the Sea Scallops are our "go-to" entrees and the salad bar is always great.

Day after valentines. We were seated in an overflow room with much less ambiance. Food was very good and the young man who served us did a good job. Desert menu was expansive. It would help to have desert menu printed and have the specials communicated

The food was priced like Redrock & Charlestons, but the plate sizes weren’t as large. I was also disappointed that they didn’t have any beer on tap. But overall is was just OK, not worth the $100 I spent with tip.

Not a romantic date place, just a pricey place to eat in an old outdated facility. They sat us by the bread warmers and kitchen entry, close to the lack luster salad bar. The ribeye was seasoned well and very tasty. Just not a place we’d return too, nor recommend.

This is our favorite go to place but tonight we had a group of four ladies behind us who were very loud and never quit talking making it hard to talk and listen to the beautiful piano music being played. This was not all legends fault it was just one of those things that happen sometimes when people aren't considerate of others.
