Got our favorite Server, D'Ette. Along with superior service, the Bison Short Rib Ravioli were awesome.
Love the new Bar Menu. Still the best Italian food in OKC.

According to my sister who had the pork chop, it was heavenly. My husband tasted it as well and said it was the best entree at the table! I personally thought my bone-in Prime Rib steak was excellent and cooked to perfection. Definitely our favorite Italian restaurant in the Metro!

Wait staff was eager to please and give assistance when asked. I tried their seasonal soup which was superb and the dessert (Panna cotta) was excellent, not too sweet-just right. I enjoyed my first visit and will undoubtedly return.

What an experience!!! We chose to have the “Chef’s Feed”, where you don’t know what you’re getting, until the plate shows up at your table. The evening was one we will never forget. Scallops, acorn squash soup, bison raviolo and braised lamb were all paired with the perfect wine. You don’t come here to eat, you come here to dine. It’s an incredible place that is not duplicated anywhere in OKC. Robert, Jonathon and our Cosmic Food Guru to the universe, deEtte, make our evenings special every time and so very personal. Do yourself a favor and book a table. NOW!!

The staff were very courteous and attentive. The restaurant is dimly lit with an intimate feeling. Unfortunately the food wasn't as good. I enjoyed the sourdough bread... not tough like you sometimes find. But the gnocchi and my mom's spaghetti sauce were tasteless. I really had my hopes up!! I was hoping to find my new favorite restaurant.

My husband and I were downtown on business one weeknight and decided on Patrono. It was lovely. Warm and inviting with knowledgeable wait staff. We had the swordfish appetizer and summer salad. We ordered the halibut special and it was delicious! You cannot go wrong with this place!

On a busy night, no one to greet us when we arrived. Our service was somewhat indifferent but the folks at the next table were treated like they were famous.

For an Italian restaurant there were a lot of steaks on the menu, rather than sonething a bit more Italian. My octopus appetizer was good, and the gnocchi entree undercooked and flavorless. Desserts good, and wine list good but pricy.

Most customers were having a good time so maybe it was just us. We are new to OKC and will keep searching for the city's best restaurants.

The host seemed un-prepared even though a reservation was made. The server was behind for the entire meal. The food was served with little hospitality. Had to ask to describe some of the items. The server was not available when needed. The portions seemed small and looked small on the plate.

The food is always fabulous at Patrono. They use the freshest of ingredients and come up with amazing dishes. This time it was a peach carpaccio with prosciutto. They also have one of the best wine lists in town for Italian wines. I always get a recommendation for something new that we just love. This is truly a gem for OKC!
