Incredible first experience, and probably the best food I’ve ever had. My girlfriend and I attended, it was 80s night, the servers were punctual and polite, and very knowledgeable about their menu. The owner came by and spoke to us personally and shook our hands, and made sure that we felt at home. The fish and chicken my girlfriend and I shared were perfectly seasoned, and succulent. I would come here every night if I could if it were not for the price, but boy is it worth it.

We came to see a show and eat dinner. The music was so loud between the show that we couldn’t talk to each-other without shouting or speaking right into eachother’s ear. We were seated at a large table in a nook with only a blue fluorescent lighting the back mural. We are in our 20s-30s and we needed our phone flashlights to read the menus. Half of our party left early without ordering meals because the drinks took an excessive amount of time to arrive.

The show was great and we were able to move our chairs out of the table nook to see it. The food was perfect and delicious. Although any type of beverage order took very long, food was not a long wait as kitchen staff brought it out. I would recommend the food at La Brasa to anyone if it weren’t for the terrible weekend dinner ambiance.

Been to LaBrasa several times...always enjoyed the experience.

On Saturday July 28th a group of 6 of us went for a nice dinner. Everything went well...had a good server, but it was clear our table was an afterthought to him. Meal was delicious but attentiveness was lacking...he had to reminded on more than one occasion of something we needed.

Near the end of the evening we noticed they were transforming the place into a dance club...Salsa I believe. So after I tabbed out (over $400) I asked if we could have a drink and hang out...we were told absolutely...we ordered. Drinks never showed up. Never. I asked 3 different people about our drinks...nothing. I get that they were switching things up...but I didn’t think that taking care of a simple request was going to be impossible.

If I could get the delicious food and better service...I’d go back all the time. But, based on the way the night ended...at this point it’s doubtful if I will ever go back. There’s simply too many good restaurants in OKC competing for my dining dollar.

What a pleasurable experience! My wife and I decided to come for a date night. The sea bass was perfect, wine pairing was spot on, Pisco sour was delicious. Best of all, the service was amazing! From our waiter to the 3-4 people who stopped to ensure we had a great time, the service was spot on. It didn’t hurt that the strawberry cake was out of this world. We will be back!!!

We have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed it. This was one of those times that made us say we will never go back. We were seated promptly at 7 pm and were not even checked on till 7:13. The waitress was friendly but she seemed pre occupied and our food was served to each guest over a span of 5 min. So while we waited on everyone to be served others food cooled down. We were never offered dessert we were just brought our checks. It took 20 min for them to even return our credit cards so we could leave. While waiting the place turned into a night club setting with the DJ blasting the music so loud you couldn’t even talk to the person next to you. We were finally able to leave at 8:45. After signing our checks. I think an hour and forty five min is a bit long for a table of 4

Everything was great!! The only hiccup was our table itself. It was super wobbly to the point that no one could put arms on th table without causing it to tilt back and forth. Other than that, we loved it and will definitely go back!!

We should have done more research before eating here because the "clubstaurant" concept is not something of which we're interested. The food was mostly quite good, however, the paella tasted like the seabass had just turned. Not enough to make one sick, but not very tasty. Everything else was good. The service was excellent, however, we did ask to have the club music turned down a few times, and after the third time the manager/owner came out and passive aggressively acquiesced to our request. We get it. Your concept is "clubstaurant," so turning down the music was contrary to your super cutting-edge concept. That didn't give you license to condescend. This is OKC, not NYC, save the attitude for someone who might be impressed. In the end, we're not your customers, and that's fine. No hard feelings.

So, from being Greeted to the end of our meal I give this place a A+. The setting was nice and smooth, our waiter was Very knowledgeable bout the drink menu along with the food. My wife even took a drink he recommended, and Loved it. Now I’m stuck trying to mimic it. Lol. Then there’s the food, me being a Chef myself I TOTALLY tip my hat to the Executive Chef here. The blend of different cultures of food and spices is Incredible!!!!! I will definitely have to bring some friends back and try this again, and again.

I have to Thank DJ LYFE for recommending this place.

Eric M and the La Brasa team made my wife’s 30th birthday amazing. Eric did a wonderful job checking with our large party and making sure that everything was perfect. After great drinks and fantastic meals, Eric and the head chef came up with a knock out dessert for our group. We couldn’t have been happier with the whole experience. Thank you Eric and La Brasa team!!!!

Went with my parents and they both loved the decor and the food; staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, food was fantastic, and the space itself is just excellent. We’re looking forward to going back and also thinking of having bigger dinners there since there are some great big-group tables available too. Wonderful ambiance aside, Chef Vu really knows his stuff, every dish was a pleasure.

As always the food was amazing. If I could duplicate the Tuna Ceviche, I would never leave the house! I had a casual business meeting with some colleagues in from Ft. Worth and they were totally impressed (as I knew they would be). The ambiance provided an excellent atmosphere for talking business and a climate that fosters good vibes for transition to relaxed and enjoyable personal conversation. I ended my week on top!

Took Walter's suggestion for native cocktail (yum) and again for family dinner experience: got to sample 3 meats, 4 sauces, choice of 3 sides. Great food, service, and dining experience.
