Enjoyed a belated Valentine’s Day dinner and enjoyed both specials. It was new to us and a perfect place to splurge. We hadn’t been out in a long time.

Not as good as I hoped. The main course was great (ravioli and their chefs special risotto) but the Fritto Misto was awful- soggy, only 2 shrimp, and the lemon aioli was thick and tasteless. The drinks were delicious but it took almost 25 mins to get one drink and we were one of about 8 tables in the restaurant.

The main point is that the food was good. The only thing upsetting was having a reservtion and getting there to a we are sorry the only table left is right in front of the front entry door! I couldn't hear anyone at my table and forget about romance when there are butts backed up to your face standing waiting for a table. For a lunch I would say go for it. For a dinner if your looking for elegance this is not the place.

The ambiance is great. Our server was plenty busy doing the bar and tables. Would suggest explanation of cannoli dessert prior to ordering as we didn't realize it was for two people so we ordered two desserts. The remaining lasagna was even better the second day! We were glad to see you busy this holiday weekend and wish you success this year.

Wine dinner fun. Positives = salad, agnolotti, dessert. Negatives = short ribs just not a fit and too heavy, wine pours way too small. Still excellent establishment. We love Sherri...

Our favorite spot to sneak away locally and have the best Italian around. We have 3 little girls and when we want to have a date night away, this is our spot! Try the lasagna and the pizza bites!

This is the first time I have given a negative review on a restaurant. Especially one were the previous experiences couldn’t have been better. It started be being seated next to a table that was so loud I could only describe it as - Piercing. I understand the restaurant can’t always control a table. However, add to that likely the worst service I have received in a very long time. Start with not clearing my wife’s menu even after her entree was served? The waitress completely disappeared after the meal and we just stared at each other as the restaurant was literally clearing out except the loud table next to us of course. A manager never came to check on the table. Finally, the waitress appeared from the back to drop the check but disappeared again!! No wait staff would make eye contact to help us clear the check. Enough ranting - very disappointing experience and way too many nice restaurants to take another shot here. Again, we had three very nice experiences here so not sure what happened.

The garlic knots were fabulous; however, the 100 layer lasagna was not as good as usual. It was mainly pasta and cheese with very little marinara or meat. It was definitely not the fabulous entrée they usually offer.

First time there and I hate to oversell anything be it a movie, food or otherwise but this place cracked my top ten already. We'll see if it's just as impressive the next time I go. Mika was a great server.

Our family loved celebrating New Year’s Eve at Sparrow. The food and drinks were all fantastic. We brought our 10 and 7 year olds as well. Their kids menus was great and while it was nice, it wasn’t too nice for kids (although not an every day family dining experience). The lasagna was the best we have ever had and their specials menu delivered an amazing seafood risotto. The cocktails were unique and flavorful- and the kid mocktails were fun too. Overall, it was a great special occasion restaurant. Loved that it is here in Edmond too!

The food was fabulous, the pastas are made in house and those that are not are locally sourced.. The menu offers a variety of seafood, steak, pastas and pizzas, so it’s a great option for people with different likes.
The service was amazing.

The wait staff was extremely nice but the service was slow and terrible overall. The food was mediocre at best. The reservation process was exhausting and it took three phone calls to get it correct. Overall this restaurant needs a ton of work to be as good as it could be.

We love Sparrow... such a nice vibe in Edmond. Unique and welcoming... not pretentious at all! The portion size is generous, but not so huge that you have to get a to-go box. Everything is made fresh and can be customized. Good wine list, I wish they had more by-the-glass options, but there are a decent number of choices available. Unique and delicious cocktails that I haven't seen at other restaurants. We loved the surprise birthday cake they had for us! Will definitely return!
