Excellent menu with unique and interesting options, plated artistically.
Service professional and prompt.
Open floor plan, not very conducive to private conversation.

Thank you so much to Jessie ( spelling?) for arranging a table for 6 for us the day after Thanksgiving. She was super sweet to call us to confirm, and we felt so welcomed by her when we arrived. We had a wonderful time with our family. The food was FABULOUS. Frida's is quickly becoming our favorite restaurant in OKC.

Food has been good and consistent, a bit overpriced for what it is, but it’s a more nicer restaurant. Make sure to ALWAYS have a reservation when coming here, because we made the mistake the first time coming here without a reservation and had weird service. Almost forgot! Our server we had recently was amazing! Best service we’ve had here. I forgot his name, but he’s probably the best at Frida so.. I am sure he knows who he is! Thank you!

Nice restaurant and we will try again. However, I felt the service was rushed-server not familiar with the wines. Also, the appetizer and my main course were not hot.

OMG, Frida SW is AWESOME!! Our journey started in the bar, with one of their handcrafted cocktails and we were served by Kate who was fantastic and very helpful. We then went to our table, where we began to browse the menu. Each item we read about sounded so great! For appetizers, we shared the green chili tamale, which was excellent. We also shared the tuna tartar, which was very good and the shrimp and grits, which I loved. Then the table shared their roasted carrot salad, OK, on this one I'll be honest, I've had much better carrot salad elsewhere, but that doesn't mean this one was bad, but my expectations were high, and I've had better. Next came the entrees. Two of our party had the scallops and pork belly. I had a taste and it was most delicious. My son ordered the duck and he said it was excellent. I had the strip steak oscar, but I substituted the strip steak for a filet, and it was excellent. The service was EXCELLENT!! Our waiter, who I cannot remember his name, was fantastic with his knowledge of the menu and provided excellent recommendations based upon our tastes. We did learn, a bit to late for us that day, that they have a secret whiskey bar in the back. My son, who is a self-proclaimed whiskey aficionado, had our waiter bring him the whiskey menu, and said it was a great menu with some rare whiskeys on the menu. So something to consider if you like whiskey. Frida SW is a modern restaurant in the Paseo area of OKC north of downtown. It had a great atmosphere, great service, great drinks, and great food!! We thought the prices were very reasonable. We can't wait to go back again! `I HIGHLY recommend Frida SW!!!

We were part of a party of 8 (that shrank from 10); the service was great, the food was spectacular, and the knowledgeable staff was very helpful.

It was the second visit for my wife and me, and there’s no question - we WILL be back.

This was our first visit for my son’s 28th birthday and the total experience was great. The smoked chicken pasta had the right amount of heat and chicken in every bite. The lamb dish had an empanada that was amazing. Then we had the wedding cake cookies and jelata & cheese cake that were both amazing.

We have visited Santa Fe and Taos on numerous occasions, and found this New Mexican cuisine to be some of the best examples of Southwest food we have ever had. We will tell everyone we can that this is an excellent addition to the OKC food scene and have already designated this as our go to place for fine dining. It was AWESOME....

The seafood tamale was excellent !! It is a little pricey on the menu but the taste of the tamale and the amount of seafood make it well worth the price. The seabass was seasoned and cooked to perfection. We had the Mexican chocolate cheesecake for dessert. It was VERY GOOD !! The service was very good and not rushed from course to course. The manager came by our table twice and gave us a tour of the speakeasy after dinner. The price is a little bit on the high side but well worth it especially for a special occasion.

The food was fair, the service was pretty good, but it was less than I expected.
The cocktails seem to be poured a little short.

Excellent service. My water glass, nor cocktail ever reached empty. The Seafood Tamale was outstanding. The steak Oscar was excellent and the sea bass was sublime. Be sure and visit the speakeasy prior to or after your meal. The manager gave us an excellent table and we shall return.

My wife and I had dinner here for the first time and were completely amazed by the experience!! All of the staff we encountered were genuinely friendly and attentive. The food was amazing in presentation and delicious and the owners actually spent money on acoustic noise control. Unlike most other new restaurants in OKC. Our evening was 100% delightful!!!
