It was fine to try for one time. The waiter stated he would help pair wine selection with the food however when one person in the party asked a question the waiter confessed that he had no real wine knowledge or palate.

There were no complaints about the food however it did not leave a lasting impression or create a desire to return.

We ordered the lamb shank and tri-tip. The lamb shank was good but on a bed of mushy overcooked spaghetti squash. The tri-tip was overcooked, sliced the wrong way and didn't even taste like beef. It was on the plate with smashed something and raw undressed red cabbage.
The service was good, but the food was not!

Surprised family from out of town & took them here. Food was excellent. 2 of us ordered the strip steak, unbelievably tender & delicious. The rabbit leg was very different & flavorful. And the gnocchi was perfection. Would definitely eat here again when we come back to OKC.

Ludivine was a special anniversary dinner for myself & my wife after a year of being holed up inside due to Covid. We are so happy with our choice to go to Ludivine. The food was spectacular, the service was excellent, and we were seated at the corner of the bar which gave us a great view of the small kitchen while they worked. We had an amazing time & we cannot wait to go back.

The food was excellent and the patio delightful. Midtown is hopping and popping these days, making for a loud and busy evening. Our server wasn’t great. She did an adequate job, but only just met our most basic requests. Not sure how frequently we’ll return to Ludivine after this.

We had a wonderful dining experience. We have always enjoyed eating at Ludivine but this meal felt particularly special and delicious. We ate on the outdoor patio. While it is close to the street it felt enclosed, cozy and not too loud. The heat lamps helped keep us the perfect temperature as the night cooled down. The drinks and food were absolutely top notch.

Had to be a top 5 meal in the last 5 years. House made gnocci that melts in your mouth, cheese cake with a hint of lemon and strawberry compote also house made both fabulous. Wife had halibut with a lemon sauce which I tried, also excellent. We ordered the bread appetizer, I was curious why a place would charge for bread. It was all excellent with biscuits, cornbread, and a salted honey butter. Not a single negative thing to say about this outstanding eating experience. I will be back many times.

Best meal ever at Ludivine. We have been eating at this restaurant for years and have never had a better meal. The bone Marrow is a staple but the pasta literally melted in our mouths. Foi Gras on poundcake!? - Yes!

We did the chef's tasting menu, which was pretty highly priced but it was absolutely delicious. Every part of it was fabulous. I was not impressed with their available special cocktails. I tried a few but they were fairly awful and very expensive. The restaurant itself could use a upgrade, but it wasn't awful. Our server was perhaps the best I've ever experienced. She was super knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant was very loud to the point it was difficult to hear my table talk to one another. That was mostly due to the table next to us. The woman was very British and very loud and potty mouthed.

Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and absolutely loved the food.

We arrived for our reservation and was very pleased to get a two top outside in a very nice spot. A few moments after we ordered a couple with two large dogs was seated not 3 feet from our table. We could literally smell the dogs. We do not own dogs but enjoy others, just not at our dinner table. My husband is allergic to dogs. I went up to the maitre d' and explained and they did move us but that's when things changed. It felt very much like they were not happy with us and the service went down from there. My husband's prime cut steak was full of gristle not to mention it was at room termperature. My pasta was good but needed salt. Once the food was delivered no one checked with us to see how the food was.. We didn't see anyone until it was time for check. We voiced our complaint but nothing was done. We received the check with no offer of anyone addressing our complaint. The maitre d' came to pick up the check and we once again voiced our complaint. He explained to us as if we were children that this was a prime piece of meat and the best and he himself just enjoyed one a couple of days ago. We asked if his has gristle and he replied "I enjoy gristle" and walked off. I simply cannot understand his behavior. We were not looking for a discount or a free meal, but only to have someone address our complaint. We dine out often and this is the first negative review I've written. Going forward we will enjoy any number of awesome restaurants in the Midtown area but I promise we will never return to this one.

Waiter was very educated and professional. Our food was under seasoned across the board and the table all agreed. Steaks very much needed salt and the salmon was great once we added a bit of citrus. Even the purée and squash was under seasoned. We will be back! Atmosphere was wonderful!

Went on a Tuesday, few people so the service and noise level was wonderful. The food and cocktails were exceptional; we had bone marrow appetizer, and braised beef rib for dinner (we shared).
It was rather pricey for the evening, but very good food.

Amazing establishment in OKC. Being a smaller local restaurant, the modernly decorated dining room has an intimate kitchen to table feel. I sampled their weekend lunch menu. The food was top notch and the price was beyond reasonable. Being from the coast, I had the salmon and it was one the best I’ve ever had. Ludivine is no doubt one of the best restaurants in Oklahoma.

The waiter messed up our order- seated us at the bar - as two women even though there were other nice seats and I had made a reservation on open table- it was over priced and underwhelming food and service.

Ludivine is our favorite restaurant, last Saturday we chose the Chef Menu and substituted the halibut for the steak for our Main Course. The wine pairings were excellent, the salad course was a stunner, excellent flavor, spot on. The scallops were also delicious, perfectly prepared.

We always enjoy our evenings at Ludivine.

Thank you so much Deb! Your thoughts and notes are always welcome and constructive. I had the gnocchi yesterday and wondered if the problem might have been with my pairing. Certainly, it is a salty dish, but I don't think the St. Emillion did it any favors. I know the papillote is one of your favorites. I'm really sorry we missed the mark on that. That's a shame. Please let me know the next time you guys make a reservation, and I'll try to have it available for you. Thanks again so much!

My wife and I really enjoyed the service of the staff and chefs at the restaurant. The only problem we had was the limited menu for Valentine’s Day. I understand that the restaurant is busier than usual on that day but for the price, we would have loved to choose more than three items. I believe in the value quality of service over quantity.
