The food was good, served in a timely manner. Kind, helpful wait staff. The sea bass was overlooked, which was disappointing for the $38 cost. The appetizer, dessert, wine selection were all good.

We went on Sunday before going to see Phantom of the Opera. Arrived a little before our 5:15 pm reservation and they seated us right away. Everything was delicious and I loved their all Italian wine list. We had appetizers, wine, main course, and dessert and had time to spare before the show started at 7 pm. I hope to have a reason to go back soon.

The location is great if you are going to the Civic Center or other area plays, but the food is the star of the show. I had the fish special, Chilian Sea Bass and it was excellent. No overcooked, not undercooked. My husband had pork chop from the menu and it was equally as good. Our service was spot on. It was a very enjoyable and delicious dinner.

We had such a great time at Potrono. The service and knowledge of the staff was second to none. We had one of the best tasting meals I have ever had and look forward to going back! I especially enjoyed the Chef bringing our meal out to us...it made us feel very special!

The “ITALIAN” restaurant smelled like fish. The food tasted as if it was made with Walmart Prego pasta sauce. More than over priced. The meals were the size made for a small child. Overall we were very disappointed. Olive Garden would have been a better choice.

Very simply, Patrono’s is excellent. From easy access to dessert, the food, atmosphere and servers were all exceptional.
We had a very short walk as parking was readily available. We were nicely greeted then seated immediately. The food and suggestions were all very, very good. This is an Italian jewel. You can’t go wrong with this choice.

Patrono was the best dining experience my wife and I have had since moving to the OKC metro from LA. The staff was warm, friendly and helpful.. attentive but not smothering. The food was unbelievable. Not only that but we left full. The portions were perfect. No postage stamp size portions. Couldn’t have asked for a better evening. Kudos to Robert. We will be back again and again.

Food was outstanding. I want to eventually try everything on the menu. Chef came by our table and so did the other owner to make sure we enjoyed our meal. All wines are Italian, some of the best I’ve ever had. We will be back again. Make reservations at least 2 weeks out, they book up fast and now we know why but you can always attempt a seat at the bar!

If you are looking for a creative, innovated, and unexpected surprises, you have found the gem. The cuisine is authentic Italian in an upscale atmosphere. Robert greets you at the door with a big grin, a warm and friendly handshake or a hug, if you eat there as often as I do. They have a vegan dish I love and the best pesto is the states. Every time I eat there, I swear it gets better, and I do not know how that can be.

Could have been better . Service is good . Kitchen need to focus on not to over fry / cook tender meat / fish . Scallops we ordered were almost burnt to carbon and had a distaste as a result . Pricy compared to similar restaurants in Dallas area if you are comparing city to city .

Overall a decent experience. Pork Loin special was awesome after being sold out of Halibut at 7:15. Spaghetti was average meatballs were really good Italian sausage was poor. Wine was excellent waiter had a bad attitude that really hurt the experience. Maitre’D was awesome he almost made up for the lousy waiter.
