Everything was wonderful from start to finish! We had dined at Patrono once before and loved it so we were eager to see if it was still as good. We noted in our reservation that our 3rd guest would be our 7 month old, so they had a high chair ready with a little “splat mat” underneath. Trent was our server and he was so friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. He was attentive without rushing us (it’s a great place to eat if you’re going to the theatre & he was thoughtful enough to ask if we had tickets for the show). The food is delicious and fresh! Our son was beginning to get antsy so Trent bottled our remaining wine to go and even sent us home with a complementary dessert. It’s a local gem, for sure!

Service was wonderful. Food was good. I didn’t expect a huge serving but for the prices I thought the quantity of food was lacking. The almond cake was phenomenal.

Such a wonderful restaurant in Midtown! We showed up early for our reservation and were seated right away. The staff are all very pleasant and helpful when explaining the menu, food specials, and recommendations. The atmosphere is quiet with a cozy ambiance and light music. The menu includes vegetarian, meat and potatoes, fish, and pasta. The rib eye steak was so tender and melts in your mouth, oh so yummy!! And the sweat pea and asparagus risotto is creamy and filling! A wonderful experience here in Oklahoma City, better than going to New York to Dallas for fancy meal!

My daughters and I ate here before a show at the Civic Center. We had the fried artichoke hearts and the herbed arancini appetizers. Both were perfectly cooked and the aiolis served with them were wonderful compliments to the dishes. I had the Spring Pea and Asparagus Risotto. The flavor was amazing, however I believe there was only one asparagus spear in the whole dish. The other diners had the Sea Bass, the fish specia, and the Orecchiette Amatriciana and they were both pleased. The servings are moderate and pricey but the atmosphere is very pleasant-you can actually hear each other talk! Parking at that time of day (4:00-6:00) was easy and close. Rebecca, our server, was very accommodating, answered all our questions about the dishes and made great recommendations. There was a little snafu with our checks but it was easily remedied. Will definitely go again and recommend to our friends.

It had been over a year since I dined at Patrono. After a few disappointments, I had given the "death penalty." Someone close to me said, "Please try it again! You will be happy!" So, I arranged my birthday lunch there. It was just a small, family group. We ordered diverse items and all had a great experience. I can't wait to go back again! I'm a plant-based eater and was thrilled to find well-considered menu items for me.
