Ludivine Ratings and Reviews
This is one of my favorite places to eat. They were one of the first farm to table concepts in the OKC area and have continued to make it a priority. I always suggest doing the tasting menu if they have it the night you are there. But if not the charcuterie is amazing and get the lardo.
My wife and I first visited Ludivine for our 2 year anniversary and were absolutely FLOORED by the food quality, amazing cocktails, and fantastic service! We've been back many times now, and every time it's just as good.
Sometimes, we just get the charcuterie and a few cocktails for a fun and delicious happy hour. The most recent trip, we had the chefs choice 4 course dinner, and it actually blew my mind both in presentation and flavour.
My first Ludivine experience was for the NYE special menu. I would recommend this spot to anyone wanting to experience a little bit of what Oklahoma has to offer. Small atmosphere, amazing chef's table, and local ingredients!
1st Course Choice:
Salade de Chevre Chaud with golden frill mustard, bucheron pistou gratinée, pistachio, mustard vinaigrette
2nd Course Choice:
Pan Seared Sea Scallops with cauliflower, leek, radish, charred orange beurre fondue ($12 supplement)
3rd Course Choice:
Oklahoma Wagyu Tenderloin with seared foie gras, truffled potato puree ($25 supplement)
Persimmon Brioche Pudding with roasted apples, buttermilk semifreddo, calvados caramel
The salad was amazing! From the mustard greens, the tomato, to the dressing! This could have been a 3 ingredient salad and I would still excitedly tell you about it.
The scallops were cooked to perfection. The sear on both sides left a beautiful crust for a middle to melt in your mouth. The bed of leek and radish it was on top of provided a great texture contrast and a subtle buttery cream flavor tied well.
The steak wasn't as too die for as I had hoped. Ordered medium rare, it came out on the medium plus side. The foie gras tasted slightly burnt, and this is my only experience with the fatty liver.
For dessert I had the Persimmon Brioche Pudding. Whoever made this, I love you. I would put this in my top 5 desserts of all time. If you can't imagine the best bread pudding you've ever tasted and multiple it by 3, you need to call the restaurant and have the chef explain it to you.
Once again I was blown away by the fantastic food and great atmosphere. I surprised the wife with a nice Birthday dinner and it was awesome. She had the rabbit gnocchi and i swear that bowl had no ending. My sirloin was amazing as well. I have no idea how it is so tender and the crust is just amazing. The cocktails.......they are amazing as well. A little pricey but they were something I could never achieve at home. What a fantastic experience.
Roasted bone marrow to spread on the thin toasts along with either the mustard or pickled onions was awesome - very rich. It would have fed 4 people instead of just 2. I had the omelette with spaghetti squash and my friend had the Croque Monsiour which we both enjoyed.
Decided last minute to book for Sunday Brunch, we were so thrilled last summer when Ludivines started opening for brunch. We had brunch back in the summer and we were blown away by the menu, I had the Lobster and Grits which had an amazing fresh but complex flavor profile, the crowning jewel of that dish is the lobster reduction. The crowning jewel was also my greatest disappointment yesterday because I had the lobster again and it was not nearly as good as when I had it back in July. Maybe the kitchen staff just wasn't on their game yet because we were the first booking nevertheless I was bummed the dish was not as good as previous. Otherwise, the service and the side dishes were spot on and we plan to be back very soon, we love this restaurant.
The food was delicious, the presentation was beautiful, the atmosphere was perfect for private conversation, the service was attentive but not overbearing. We tied the chefs choice 4 course meal which was a wonderful decision. We were pleasantly surprised with the good price point of the cocktail menu and will have to visit the cute smaller bar at the back.
Ludivine remains one of the top dining experiences in an ever-increasing competitive market. Unique cuisine options and wonderful cocktails make this a fantastic date/business spot for anyone who considers themselves a "foodie." While the back of the restaurant continues to push out great plates, the front of the restaurant is in need of some attention. Limited staff may be to blame, but our last visit showed some lacking there. Make no mistake, however, Ludivine stays in the rotation and appears to be positioned to stay there for some time.
OKC needs this place, hip and trendy. Charcuterie plate is a solid pick 3 winner as is the French Onion Soup. The entrees really didn’t hit the mark and not sure why, $$$ without the touch that makes it ok to be expensive. I would go back because I think Ludevine is just beginning to hit their stride and, as I said, OKC needs this place.
This is perhaps the best brunch in OKC right now, and it's for sure top three. Service is always excellent. Food is creative and beyond delicious. Get the tamales! However, one sour note: a $12 French press is criminal. That needs to change. I'll be drinking water next time.
We arrived well in advance of our show time, thinking that we might have to wait a while, but were pleasantly surprised at no wait, and had a wonderful dinner, great wine & delicious dessert. The service was excellent, and we will definitely recommend it to friends.
Ludivine is a unique and upscale dining experience in Oklahoma City. An out-of-towner, it is truly my favorite restaurant in OKC when visiting. I have eaten here four times over the last three or four months and find the chef to be innovative, providing dishes that are creative and flavorful. This particular experience, however, was my least favorite. The smoked tomato soup was extremely acidic -- making it extremely difficult to eat and continuing to linger far after the meal. The salmon was cooked perfectly but the baby bok choy was tough and hard to cut and eat. The cold pear corn relish mixed in with the bok choy and the salmon just didn't hit the spot for me. I would have preferred a different green vegetable and a starch instead of the cauliflower puree. Perhaps it was just too much going on in the dish and it would have been better it had been simpler. A starch and a green vegetable with the salmon would have made it more enjoyable instead of four different flavors in the same dish--cauliflower, pear corn relish, tomatoes, bok choy. I will go back but will definitely skip the soup the next time...
Ludivine is my favorite spot for a special night or birthday in OKC. The food is on point every time. The menu always has adventurous options, but there's always something on the menu if you're not feeling adventurous. They use fresh, seasonal ingredients and the menu is always changing. The open kitchen is great fun to watch at the bar. The staff is always attentive. The cocktails are fabulous too.
Here's what annoys me about Ludivine: it's almost great. The past 4-5 times we've been there's something off about a dish that makes it mediocre. Not bad, but Ludivine costs more than mediocre. Yesterday at brunch the salad was fantastic. I got the tamales and the beans were awesome. The eggs were perfect. The verde was super tasty. The tamales had been fried in what I assume was oil that was too cold because they were greasy and hard. The meat inside had been obliterated. My husband got the offal waffle. The seeet were breads cooked perfectly and the waffle was good but there was an inland ocean of syrup on the plate. Six year ills children don't put this much syrup on anything. As the waffle absorbed the syrup it became inedible quickly. So here's the thing Ludivine: I can't keep paying what you ask for food that's not consistent. I don't know if the change has anything to do with Johnathan leaving or not but what ever is going on I'm just about over it. I hope they figure it out.
I have been to Ludivine twice. I love the fact that their menu is different day to day. Our first experience with bone marrow was delicious. My seafood stew would have been very good but was over salted. The entrees came out 50 min late which put us in a bind and abbreviated our meal. The main chef was out so this may have been part of the reason. I'm sure we will be back to give it another try. I would definitely recommend them
This was my fourth brunch in seven weeks at Ludivine. It's simply the best brunch in OKC right now. Took a friend for her birthday, and brought two other first-timers along, and all three agreed that it was stellar. The tamales are so good it's impossible not to order them, or at least make sure someone else at the table orders them so you can taste them. Great work on the cocktails by Chad, too. An all around outstanding experience.
