The only reason I didn't give this restaurant 5 stars is the food was so spicy that I couldn't eat it or really taste it. I wish there had been a warning about how spicy it was! The service was excellent and the wine list was fantastic.

This was a preconcert dinner for friends. We were seated immediately (we had a reservation which is mandatory on concert nights). Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. I had the fish special - lump crabmeat and linguine in a white wine, garlic, and caper sauce. Absolutely fabulous. The others had spaghetti one with meat balls and one with sausage. Good reviews on those as well.

We had a fantastic time celebrating our anniversary. Thank you to our waitress T and the manager Robert for making it memorable and enjoyable. I had the fish special and my fiance had the lamb special, they both were superb. We will definitely be back to try different items on the menu.

We love the homey atmosphere and excellent service at Patrono in OKC. It has a sophisticated yet casual ambiance. Our waitress, Tamara, is personable and very knowledgeable about the food and wine offerings. The food was excellent. We have always had a great dining experience at Patrono.

Delightful! Attitude makes such a difference... Patrono bursts at the seams with genuine enthusiasm for food preparation, wine, service _ just plain getting it right. Robert, Garret, and all the staff are great support team to work with Chef Jonathon Krell! A small cozy welcoming place - fine dining doesn't have to be stuffy!! We had a wonderful dinner and are thrilled by the nice variety of choices that we hope to work our way through on future visits. My wife and I are thrilled with this very worthy addition to the best of OKC cuisine. Be prepared to have fun experiencing legitimate Italian preparation of a number interesting entrees (and finding some nifty little surprises like white Sicilian anchovies as a starter).

So appreciate a great restaurant having reservations after 10pm in OKC! Food around our table was delicious, and their seasonal menu updates always ensure fun options. Good Italian wine selection! Service is great and always helpful when deciding on wine and food options. Always feels like we’re part of the family!

We love Patrono restaurant, the food is excellent, and has a wide range of offerings. I have had the pork chop, the clams, the Rabbit, and my wife has had the scallops, spaghetti with Italian sausage, and the steak. All excellent dinners.

The only thing better than the food is the service and the wine.

We highly recommend this restaurant.

The starters were wonderful, Imported 3 cheese plate with the Vino Rosa cheese was incredible, the Patrono salad was the best salad I've ever paid for and the Sea Bass was perfect. A little small in portion but still a fantastic meal. I definitely recommend dining there and will be back very soon.

Food was exquisite! Everything was full of flavor. My Chilean sea bass was like velvet and the husbands rabbit was infused with several different flavors. I have a friend with a gluten allergy and she can’t wait to go try your gluten free dishes. I can’t wait to come back! The best part.... the Honey Bubbles moscato. Honey bees are essential to life for everyone and everything so we did not flinch at ordering 2 bottles since part, of not all the proceeds, go towards saving the honey bees.

while the experience was average for a Valentine's day dinner with my wife, it fell far below expectations. The reception upon entry was cordial, seated promptly and turned over to wait staff, that's where the night started to go off the rails. The communication was fragmented, the staff direction was lacking, hurried, forgotten at times, and beyond that there was a lack of follow up and follow through. It was almost as if they were understaffed for the big evening. selections were made, long periods of no follow up began, some appetizers never made it to the table, the wrong desert was delivered to the table and not identified until we called it to their attention, the food was good, average at best, and the described sides for the dishes selected were changed from what was stated on the menu. wanted to try because the buzz on the street was great, this was not the case tonight, lacking personal touch, would not recommend to others and will not return.

We dined here with friends after reserving a table for 4 on a Wednesday evening. We were greeted and seated promptly, but after placing our drinks order it was a long time before the waiter returned to tell us about the specials and the soup of the day. She ordered the fish special (crab with pasta, $38). He, a vegetarian, found few vegetarian items on the menu and inquired about a vegetable risotto, which wasn't available. He finally ordered the baked ricotta and sweet potato appetizer ($14) and the roasted vegetable salad ($11). Her dish had very little crab meat and was mostly pasta. His dishes tasted okay, but nothing special. He requested a decaf mocha latte after dinner and was told they didn't have chocolate syrup, so he had a regular decaf latte ($6). Service was attentive, but not particularly helpful. All in all, we felt our meal (which came to $75 before tip) was a below average value. This was our second visit within a few weeks and neither experience was particularly satisfying. We did appreciate the fairly quiet environment, which seems to be more and more difficult to find in Oklahoma City restaurants.

This is always a good place for a quiet, intimate, comfortable dinner. That place you go when you've had a bad day and just want to feel better. The service is always very good, the food with regular little surprises, and the ambiance gentle and relaxing. I recommend Patrono for any occasion.

I visit often, and am usually happy with the dining experience, but this visit left me disappointed. The most disappointing aspects were, our waiter and the food I ordered. The waiter was cold and rude. My guest had food allergies and had some questions. He seemed annoyed and bothered. (The fella who seated us, was kind and helpful, so we chose to ask him for suggestions and information.) My guest’s food was delicious, as were our starters, but my choices were not as expected. The cheese didn’t taste fresh, and the meatballs in the Italian soup were dry and lacked flavor. The broth was delicious, though.
I will return, but will ask for a different waiter when I do.

Patrono’s is First Class. Small, but that allows for the extra care given to each diner.
Great specials always on tap. Also great in house Lemoncello. Very nice.
