At first I was a little disappointed because I had made a reservation for 5 people and they tried to sit us at a table for only 4. So we ended up at the bar where Jason took care of us. To start we ordered the suppli al telefono. It was very delicious. For drinks we ordered the honey bubbles. It's a tasty white wine. Jason was knowledgeable on the wines they served. I ordered the gnocchi with grilled artichoke. The best gnocchi I've ordered anywhere in Oklahoma. It was cooked perfectly like a real chef instead of some line cook making it. I also had some of the sausage and meatballs. I was sad to here it was not bought from an actual Italian grocer. Just a simple suggestion, get your Italian sausage and cheeses from Loveras Italian grocery in Krebs Oklahoma. I really enjoyed this place from the staff all the way to drinks. Again these are just my own opinions and feel free to try for yourself.
Patrono has recently made some changes for their Spring/Summer menu, and they are fantastic. Our table had the swordfish crudo and the gnocchi with artichokes. I will be back to try the rest of the new items on the menu.
Patrono continues to impress. I keep trying different selections from the food menu and the wine menu... I have not been disappointed yet! Everyone is very helpful!
Loved it! We will be back!! Service was outstanding.
Patrono used to be one of our favorites, with very authentic Italian food. Unfortunately, last night we were disappointed. They had just changed the menu for spring/summer, and all our favorites were gone. I had the gnocchi, it was okay, a little tough and fairly expensive for not having a protein included (server suggested adding). My husband had cacao de pepe, added on protein. His was disappointing-sausage was very charred on outside (almost burned) dry on inside, pasta was very dry, not a lot of flavor. We split a salad, and a bottle of wine. Our bill with tip was $130. If it had been great, it would be worth it. Maybe the Fall will be a better menu for us. We will hesitate to risk it at that price.
The food was excellent and the surroundings are cozy.
Outstanding food and service! Great vibe! They treat you like family!
Food was fantastic, service was excellent. Only complaint was noise level. We had never been there, so was not aware how noisy it would be. Maybe that evening was unusually noisy as there was a table of 6 and a table of 8 (loud) ladies near us. In hind sight, we should have asked to move, as the staff was very attentive. We will be back.
The service has always been great. They understand the need to prompt attention on nights when there are events at the Civic Center. Small menu but the entrees to date have been very tasty. We will go again.
Had dinner here for the first time with a friend. It was very convenient since we were seeing a show at the Civic Center. We will def be back. Great food, service, and ambience.
Trent was AMAZING! Wasn’t any question he couldn’t answer and he was on top of our every need. Couldn’t have asked for better service!
We were in town for the half marathon and we were a few mins late because of parking issues due to all the other events in town. The manager was very hospitable and very nice. Our waitress was great. Would go back again and tell a friend too.
Fantastic food. Great wine selection.The gnocch with artichokes was incredible.
Great place! Great food! Great service!
This was my second time at Patrono's and as I wrote last time, we like it a lot. The Crab pasta was really good.
We were in town for a tour of OU and found this on Open Table. How fortunate for us!! We arrived a few minutes early and were warmly greeted by Robert. Instead of making us wait by the door he walked us back to a couch by the bar where he told us we’d be much more comfortable while we waited. He was right, we relaxed, talked about the wine list and chatted for a few minutes . Table was ready right on time. From there Trent took over. He was, in a word, captivating. He knew the wine menu, brought us a few tastings and, wait for it, listened to our feedback. He came back with exactly what we wanted. From there he lead us through the evenings menu, listening (a lost art). They were out of the gnocchi but he offered an alternative and recommended using a different pasta with all the same other ingredients. Our meals were amazing. Fresh, hot and delicious. Dessert was spectacular. I can promise anyone who reads this that they won’t be disappointed. I’ve been an Open Table member forever and use it several times a month. In all that time, I’ve never written a review of a restaurant. That should tell you everything you need to know about Robert, Trent and the entire crew at Patrono. I just wish they had one in Dallas
There is always a friendly face to greet you and make you feel so special. This is where you go if you know about hidden gems in OKC.
Patrono is a downtown gem, the perfect spot for a pretheatre dinner.
Food was amazing!!! Patrono is a super cute little place. Definitely make a reservation, we saw people turned away because they didn't have a reservation. Close to the Civic Center Music Hall. This place is pricey so be prepared for that, but it's worth it. Panna Cotta was the best!
Hidden gem in downtown. Great food & very accommodating to gluten allergies
Dropped in for lunch-very good!
Food was incredible. I took my daughter and she asked me “how can everything taste so good?”
Very warm & welcoming with attentive service & great food. As a solo female diner, I felt completely at ease & very well taken care of.
We’ve dined here a few times, it was always good. I had spaghetti and meatballs but sadly, the meatballs were not warm. Otherwise, it was a fun evening.
Excellent service with pre-meal Lemon drop Martini and Wine(s).
Waiter was well informed and great at table side.
He was quite attentive and got us off to the ballet ... on time.
We are planning our return now.
Took friends because previous dining experiences had been so good. I was really disappointed. Server came almost to get drink order before we even had time to look over wine list. Then she didn't come back to get our drink order until she took our meal order. Small plate didn't come out until just before the meal. No complaints about the food. But I wanted the special experience that I an used to at Patrono for my out of town guests.
Excellent service , very knowledgeable staff and exceptional Italian wine selection. Very relaxed atmosphere perfect for a date night! Food was delicious
A great spot for dinner before the Civic Center. The service was attentive and the food was delicious. Well done.
Great local hometown restaurant.
We love the food and the overall vibe of this restaurant. All of the staff is very helpful and friendly. It’s the perfect place for a romantic dinner or a group of friends.
The food was excellent. Loved the house made limoncello cocktail and the staff was very friendly. Will definitely come back
Dinnner was one of the best dishes I’ve had in ages ( gnocchi with duck rugout) and cooked to perfection ( thank you, Zach). Service is always impeccable and am always pleased with the wine selections. Will continue to return for a phenomenal dinner
We love Patrono! The food is always fresh and delicious and the service is great. Jason at the bar is a good conversationalist and an excellent waiter. And Robert welcomes everyone like they are his best friends. It is a great place to go before the theater, or just to go for a wonderful dining experience.
Pre POPS concert meal
Excellent cuisine; Excellent service; Friendly people-LOVED IT!!
They have a great wine selection, food was perfect and out quickly, the almond cake for desert was the perfect choice, and our server was very professional. definitely will be back.
Great food . Better service . Neat area . Great view of downtown.
We had a great dinner before the Thunder game. We each had one of the chef’s specials for the evening and enjoyed them very much.
As other reviewers have said, this is a great neighborhood restaurant. It is within just a couple of blocks form the OKC Civic Center, so we ate prior ro a seeing a performance. Italian food with a bit of imagination- we really liked it and will definitely be back.
Robert, the manager, and his crew do and exceptional job! They always make us feel like we are right at home.
