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!

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.

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.

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.

I had mentioned when I made my reservation that this was a special occasion for my wife and I. The manager met us at the door and saw us to our table and mentioned how happy he was that we were dining with them on such a special night. Then the waitstaff also mentioned it being a special occasion. Such a small thing but that little attention to detail made such a tremendous difference. Love those guys!!!

The service was exceptional. The restaurant is oddly appointed for a fine dining establishment. The food was ok, the gnocchi was dense and chewy. The seafood pasta was flavorful but a small portion. For the price, the food quality and quantity was not what we expected.

Outstanding food and service. We highly recommend this Italian restaurant for a nice quiet dinner. The staff was very helpful in making suggestions which were all excellent. If you haven’t been to Patronos, then go. Try it. You’ll be glad you did.
We will be returning very soon.

Mixed review. The Italian wedding soup here is amazing. The spaghetti and meatballs are just okay. Most of their wines are from Italy. Would like to see a few more Napa offerings. This place has a cool vibe and a reputation for constantly changing their menu. Generally mysterious but I would probably try it again.

I came in for a couple of drinks and enjoyed my my time here. The atmosphere and ambience at Patrono is great for either relaxing at the bar, or out on a date for dinner. From the candles, furnishings, to the music, Patrono is perfect to experience either occasion. The service is awesome. My bartender had me very satisfied in promptly bringing out drinks I’d ordered, and carry out friendly conversation while seated at the bar. I’d definitely recommend Patrono to anyone interested in relaxing after a day’s work, or out for dinner, and will definitely be back! Thanks again.

My husband and I decided to go out for a nice Sunday supper and Patrono was the perfect choice. We both ordered pasta dishes and wine and an appetizer - all were wonderful. We were seated in a quiet corner by the bar, and were attentively served by the bartender. Highly recommended. Our visit made an ordinary Sunday into date night.

Great restaurant...great service...one of my favorite places in town. Tamara was a great server...

Only issue...we had a 6:30 pm reservation....Four different times what we ordered was not available. They were out of the Branzino, Lamb Shank, MacAllen 15 and one dessert we asked for...I travel and dine out frequently...but I'll have to say this is an experience I've never had. Of course there's the one off item not available. But 4 different items? Maybe just an off night there.

Like I said...a great place and I will be back to Patrono....and most likely soon.

This was our first visit to Patrono and we were not disappointed. We started off with the Patrono salad. I enjoyed the Chicken al Mattone -10 oz. grilled airline breast, roasted garlic parmesan potato puree, garlic broccolini, piedmontese salsa verde and my husband enjoyed the Spaghetti & Meatballs. We both had some handcrafted cocktails from the bar. We finished with the pear creme brulee. The food and the service is fabulous.
