The food was all delicious! We split the southwest eggrole appetizer and the kale/brussels salad. My wife had the short ribs and I had the bone-in pork chop. Since it was my birthday, the waitress brought us the Mexican hot chocolate cheese cake. We will be back and have already told some friends to check it out.

The meal was delicious. The service was impeccable. We will definitely be back. I had the Frito salad, it was great. My husband had huevos rancheros and he loved it. Our server was delightful.

Current favorite dining experience in Oklahoma City. I do wish there were a few more healthy options (especially on the appetizers) and menu transparency as far as meat and vegetable sourcing (organic, grass fed, etc).

This restaurant never disappoints! It’s become our favorite restaurant. The service was perfect. Stacey’s recommendations were spot on. The 2 appetizers spring rolls & queso cheese was amazing. The filet has the perfect flavor and cooked perfectly.

We were seated next to the bar in the outdoor seating. First time, normally have set indoor. Very comfortable. Restaurant practices social distancing, servers and all employees are masked. Jessie, the hostess visited our table several times, our server, Lindly(sp) was exceptional. Very knowledgeable and her recommendations were spot on. All in all a great evening. Frida is definitely one of the best venues in OKC and has been since its debut.

Frida southwest is an AMAZING restaurant. The food is exceptionally fresh and well crafted. The chef puts a lot of thought and care into each dish. The wait staff is phenomenal too. They remember my name and welcome me each time I come in. The waitress Tamera is especially amazing! I could not recommend this restaurant more!

5 stars for frida. Restaurant was very accommodating when I made a mistake with the time of my reservation. Party of 4, greeted promptly, waitstaff was friendly and attentive all while being very comfortable and laid back. Beautiful interior, spacing was perfect considering covid. The real star of the show was the food, scallops, seabass and pork chop were all amazing with the scallops getting the gold medal. Appetizers were also excellent, fundido, spring rolls and tuna tartare edging out the win. Key lime pie and chocolate cake were both excellent and the winter cocktail list was well made. Can’t wait to go back!

I picked Frida Southwest for my birthday celebration dinner after having such an amazing dining experience here on Valentine’s Day this year. I didn’t think it could get better than that experience, but they out did themselves! This place is amazing! They had only been back open a few days due to being without electricity from a historic ice storm, but they did not miss a beat! The food exceeded our expectations, the service was outstanding! This is a new “Fav” for fine dining!

Great service, good food in a great outdoor atmosphere. We started with the spring rolls, which were served hot, crisp, and tasty. We enjoyed the salad and tortilla soup and the creekstone short rib. All very well prepared.

Hate to say it , but awful experience this time around. Paid 40$ for about 3oz of fish. The table next to me had the same dish and the fish was double the size . I ate mine in 2 bites (for reference, I am a small woman). It’s hard to digest spending LA prices when you don’t receive the same quality . The waitress even agreed it was ridiculous but did nothing to fix. The service was SLOW and server was unresponsive and not pleasant in the slightest. I want to come back but paying $150 for a meal, leaving hungry and having a sever agree that you got ripped off isn’t a good feeling !

After living in Chicago for 2 years with great dining experiences I was not expecting to have one of my favorite dining experiences all year in OKC. The server went above and beyond for us with champagne and cake for my friend’s birthday. The food was phenomenal. The atmosphere was COVID safe and we felt at ease. I cannot recommend Frida enough!

The food is always great and the service is always good. I wish they would expand their bar offerings. Very few selections of ryes and tequilas. Seems strange because it is a beautiful bar and seemingly an important aspect of the restaurant.

Fridas always has delivered an excellent meal. This time was even better! Our waiter Zack, was extremely professional and very aware of spacial distancing. He would move in to place food and drink and step back, with out making the additional effort come cross as exaggerated. The halibut special really needs to become a regular menu item. All meals were excellent, but halibut stood out even above the standard high quality we’ve come to expect. The patio offered more distance and made the full experience a joy. Thank you everyone at Fridas. Keep doing what you do so well.
