                                            Drinks were lacking. Of the 5 we ordered only 1 would get reordered. 1 was returned because it was awful (hoisin drink, couldn’t even taste the whiskey). The food was good but nothing crazy. Many other restaurants in similar price range that are superior. Wasn’t terrible but won’t be back.

                                            Was turned away from the door for no reservation. Went outside and made a reservation on my phone and walked in and was seated. Unbelievable. 1 beer on the menu which ran out halfway thru dinner. Food was very good. If you want a salad before your meal you have to order an entire dinner salad enough to feed two. Idk your call may get better who knows.

                                            We opted for dinner on a Wednesday and the noise level was almost unbearable. We ended up leaving earlier than planned because we could barely hear each other. The food is decent and reasonably priced considering their hefty serving sizes but the menu seems lacking. There are also minimal gluten free options for starters. Half the wine list was “unavailable”. Their cocktails on the other hand were delightful. Not sure I’d go back in a hurry. Maybe if they update their menu we might revisit.

                                            This was our first time dining here after several attempts to book a reservation we finally got an available slot. We were so pleased with not only the food, but also the staff. They made our first experience the absolute best and we look forward to visiting again really soon.

                                            Took 40 minutes to get an appetizer. Menu is not very descriptive. Everything we ate was just ok.

                                            This place has some amazing food and ambiance! The braised beef ribs are sooooo fall apart and melt In your mouth. The asparagus and mushrooms and sprouts in the honey and parmesan are some of the best veggies I’ve ever had. And I can’t say enough about our waitress Allegra. She is outstanding! We request her each time and never disappoints. You must eat here.

                                            Just wonderful. The staff was welcoming and accommodating of my 86 year old mother and her walker. All of our food was amazing and we truly felt like we were part of ‘the family’. Cannot say enough good things. I have also previously taken a large group for a business dinner (14 people) and that experience was just as great.

                                            What a disappointment, from the minute we got there. I was part of a party of 4 girlfriends there to celebrate birthdays. None of us had been before and we’re all looking forward to dinner. The restaurant has a very cool vibe. We arrived a few minutes early but waited 30 minutes because they didn’t have enough waitstaff. We couldn’t wait at the bar because apparently those seats were reserved. We thought we would go next door to The Gray Sweater to take a peek at their bar. The hostess actually told us that they discouraged people from going next door and that it wasn’t “allowed!” After being seated we received our cocktails, one of which was a poorly made martini in a WINE glass. The server politely told us that they didn’t have a proper martini glass!! How does a fine dining establishment with a bar not have the correct glass wear?!! The food was ok, the menu cocktails were very good. They were out of a couple of their entrees so we all ordered the cast iron steak. It took about an hour for dinner to arrive but the server was attentive with water refills. We also waited a long time to receive our check… they were already cleaning up by the time we got it. Overall a disappointing experience for such a cool environment. I don’t understand why establishments continue to accept reservations when they clearly are not prepared to handle the customer load. There were 6 other people waiting to be seated along with us. Interestingly, I received an email from opentable asking why we were unable to make our reservation and passing on cancellation /rain check policies!! So apparently they can’t even keep track of their reservations. Sorry, unlikely to return

                                            Denny's Restaurant experience at Black Walnut price! To begin with we were seated by the doors opening street side and every time someone went in and out we were treated to a rush of cold air (this inconvenience could have been solved by restricting the use of the left side door); the acoustics are so poor the three of us were not able to have a conversation at normal voice level; the waitress filled 2 of the water glasses and I had to ask her to fill the third, only one time during the over 2 1/2 hours we were there did anyone offer to refill the water glasses; menus were left of the table for the entire time we were there; we were seated for 1 hour and 15 minutes (yes, one hour and 15 minutes!!) before our drinks of wine and one mixed drink arrived, after 1 hour and 30 minutes we attempted to cash out and go somewhere else, but were assured our food was on it's way; the steak was ordered medium-rare and arrived medium-well - since we had been seated almost two hours at this time we did not send the steak back for one cooked correctly; both the steak and the pork chop were thin (maybe 1/2 inch thick), but the food was tasty, especially the salad. Am I recommending this restaurant to friends? NO! I am telling them it is the worst dining experience we have had in OKC.

                                            Ordered two dirty martini's and a starter, fried green tomatos. The starter came, and it was excellent. Still no martinis. After what seemed like an eternity, the martini' came, in a wine glass. Timeliness! The olives were the miniture type. Not what I'm used to in an "up scale" restrauant. When you try to drink a martini from a wine glass, the olive skewer rotates to the sipping point. Detail! Ordered a bottle of cab sav and the Tomahawk steak for two. The steak arrived, and the presentation was beautiful. The silverware provided was a fork and dinner knife. Serving the family style vegetables and mac and cheese was a challenge. A serving spoon would have been appreciated. The dinner knife was not up to the task of cutting the steak. A steak knife would have been appreciated. Detail! The steak was perfectly prepared, and the flavor was excellent. The mac and cheese, along with the vegetables, were very good. From the time the meal was served until we finished the meal, we never saw our server. There were three servers, and they were slammed. There were two behind the bar. We had been finished with our meal for at least five minutes when the server delivered our bottle of wine. At that point, I refused the bottle of wine, and requested the check. I provided the server with the above feedback. They comped the martinis. In summary, the food was very good. The service was poor and attention to detail is non-existant.

                                            There were no clear signs for parking or the restaurant entrance. We walked into what we believed was the front door and everyone stared at us.. we were obviously in the wrong place. We were eventually awkwardly told the hostess stand is in the back. Once back there, the hostess didn’t acknowledge us and what I believe was the manager began arguing with her. Eventually we were able to tell them we had reservations and we were told to sit while we wait for our table. 4 other couples showed up after us and were seated before us, even though we showed up for our reservation. Once seated, it was crowded, uncomfortable, and took over 15 minutes for a waitress to acknowledge us for drinks. The food was not at all worth the price and it was super slow service. The waitresses and waiters were obviously overwhelmed and understaffed. Overall, it was a stressful and unwelcoming environment that cost too much money. We will not return to this restaurant.

                                            Poor service, uninspired food except for a couple of items didn't make for a great visit. Chef Black's gone on to other things, I suppose.

                                            The wines we had were excellent and the honey lavender chicken was exceptional. My only reason for not giving 5 stars was that the menu choices were limited based on my palate. But what we did order we enjoyed immensely.

                                            Got here early for dinner, 6pm. The restaurant was clean and very well decorated and organized. The service and staff were great from the moment we arrived. Very friendly and accommodating. The server knew the menu very well and she was attentive to us, as was the manager, and bar tender. The food was incredible. Prepared perfectly, plated nicely, and priced very fairly. I will definitely be back, and plan to try Andrew’s Grey Sweater experience.
