Benvenuti's Ratings and Reviews
Another fantastic evening at one of our favorite Norman restaurants. Consistently checks all the boxes. Great food and drinks (peach infused vodka Moscow Mule was a surprise) great service, classy-cozy ambiance and the Friday art walk always ads a cool injection of life and activity to the place.
Every dish from the appetizers to the entrees were delicious. Specialty cocktail was a flight of mules enjoyed by 2 at our table of 4. One guest was from Houston and stated this was one of the best meals he has eaten. Rivaled the upscale restaurants in Houston.
Celebrated our anniversary and the staff wished us happy anniv. upon our arrival and we recd the best service from CORI and the best HOMEMADE ITALIAN FOOD we have EVER BEEN SERVED!!! And yes the food is not cheap BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! AND IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!! We are already discussing what we will order next time! Must try meatballs and calamari. This place has a 5 star chef AND you can tell! EVERYTHING was 5 STAR!
The back dining room was quiet and comfortable, the main dining area was cozy and more vibrant but equally appealing for all patrons. The outside patio was partially shaded and looked very pleasant. The food was fresh and very tasteful. We all had appetizers and a main course - the gnocchi was excellent and definitely made from scratch! The bruschetta was outstanding as well. Very large wine selection and the servers are knowledgeable and recommend pairings. We will definitely return again.
Had not been to the restaurant in years and decided to try it again for our anniversary. Food was good. A bit high in price, but we knew costs before going. For us a place to save for a special occasion for the ambiance. Main dish was not as tasty as I would have expected. Nothing really special, but it may have been our choices. No offer of a free dessert for our anniversary, as other places we have been in town, but I could have asked when we made the reservation. Overall, a pleasant restaurant and good desserts.
I cannot say enough about this restaurant. It's staff, it's feel, the unbelievably good cocktails and diverse menu make it a stand out in my opinion. We went for my wife's birthday and we both thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We were greeted by our wonderful server who recommended everything that we ate and drank. His knowledge of the menu and his ability to communicatevthe flavors and feel of the dishes, cocktails and even down to dessert were on point for us. We started with crab fingers, which are to die for! Save the buttery sauce from the bottom of the bowl to dip the crusty warm bread that just magically keeps finding it's way to your table. We then enjoyed savory Sage Advice cocktails and Long Island ice teas. The main course was chicken marsala for me while my wife had the lobster pasta. Both dishes were absolutely fantastic. We concluded our birthday celebration with the flourless chocolate torte and coffee. It was a gorgeous evening, with great food and service.
If your going to dinner to visit, it might be tough. We are regulars but lately the noise has been overwhelming. Too many people are being set in the somewhat private dining room area. Opt to sit in the main dining unless you are a private party and have the entire room
Were visiting from out of town looking for nice dinner options and B's was just what we needed. Great wine list. Great food and fantastic service. Lucas was great. Give that man a raise. The sea bass was (far) better than the sea bass we had at a (5star) resort in costa rica recently. Seriously. Was very good! Reccomend it without a doubt
The only glitch was that out res we made on open table didnt go through at the restaurant end. So just make sure you call. They were, however, very accommodating and it was not an issue at all. Kudos to the hostess staff
Benvenuti's does not disappoint. We love the atmosphere and Tanner our waitstaff was superlative in both his attentive nature and choice recommendations. He was super friendly (as was all of the staff at Benvenuti's) and made our night special. I highly recommend the Lobster Fazzoletti and Rack of Lamb. The big sheet of pasta on the lobster is exquisite and the Au Gratin Potatoes are a special one-of-a-kind.
We went to Benvenuti's for our anniversary. Both of us had one of the specials, which was remarkable. Our only complaint is that, despite making reservations, we were seated in a room with three very noisy groups of 9 or more diners. If you dine at Benvenuti's as a couple, be sure to ask for a quiet room if you want to hold a conversation.
