Good entrees, spaghetti good, as was pork chop and steak. Still needs to add American wines, but obviously that's not gonna happen. That keeps them from getting 5 stars. Atmosphere is excellent.

We were very disappointed to be seated directly in front of the door on a cold night. Reservations had been made two weeks in advance.

Fantastic all around: informed and professional service; excellent cocktails; beautifully prepared starters, entrees and desserts. Our group of 6 spanned the menu, from the grilled bone-in pork chop to the braised lamb shank to the lobster mushroom and lobster claw special -- all superb. And best of all, having dined here numerous times, the high quality is consistent. One of the very best of Oklahoma City's growing menu of fine dining options.

Had a great time at Patrono. I was expecting it to be a great restaurant but it blew my expectations out of the water. Tamara was a great waitress. She was informative but not entirely in your business. A Chianti and a Cappuccino are a must have.

Patrono is always an amazing experience. Robert Painter, the owner, has always made sure his patrons are taken care of. He wants to feed people good food and has found a wonderful chef to do so with. The staff at Patrono is always welcoming and friendly and they know a lot about the food they serve. Their menu changes seasonally and I’m always excited to see what has changed.

We choose Patrons for our 27th anniversary. We were quickly sat and were helped making a wine selection. The couple behind our table weren't getting along but they finished and departed. The meat and cheese plate was perfect as was the French bread, and soup. We had the salmon and the pork roast which we shared. Two desserts, coffee and liquors and we were quite satisfied.
It was a fantastic evening though our servers name escapes me she was attentive, prompt and a delite.

Thank you for a great evening

This review is mixed. The restaurant is lovely: calm, good acoustics, no t.v. The service is excellent: welcoming, attentive, and with good recommendations. The wine list is exclusively Italian, which pushed us to try some new wines (with the waiter's recommendations and a taste before committing) that we really enjoyed. The mixed grilled vegetable salad was excellent. The buffalo short rib ravioli was delicious (though the pasta could have been cooked ever-so-slightly more. But the spaghetti was a real disappointment: boring, with not enough sauce and too much meat. We might give it another try, but our experience of the food was definitely mixed.

Awesome! As always! Menu changes & is up to date fresh w local ingredients. We really feel like it is a delight when we eat there. Desserts, omg! Service is good & not overbearing to let you enjoy every bite, but if you have to be somewhere soon, tell them & they are snappy quick to help. Loved Trent, our waiter. He always makes us feel like we are his favorite customers.
