“Perfect location for a chic gathering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

I recently hosted my father's retirement party at the Park Avenue Grill lounge area - Red Velvet Room. I planned the entire event from NYC (where I live). Logan, Kiya, Mickey and team were an absolute dream. The location is perfect for a gathering as you take advantage of the fantastic view of the lobby, the restaurant and of course the holiday decorations! The food was wonderful and the wine selection superb. To me the value of the event could not be beat (maybe I'm too used to NYC prices). No seriously...run, don't walk and plan your next gathering here. It's the best hotel location in OKC.

“Excellent portion sizes, wonderful attention to detail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011 via mobile

While the restaurant might be hard to find, the entrance being buried amidst the grandiose lobby, once found you won't be disappointed!! From the welcoming hostess (i think her name was laura?) To the laughter from the open kitchen this restaurant is a wonderful place to come any night. The food is on point, our server Kiaya was very knowledgeable, and the wine list is a great selection. My husband and i came here for our 50th wedding anniversary and we will definitely be back!!

“GREAT EVENT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

Last Friday we had an event in Red Velvet lounge for about 45 people. The food was excellent and the servers were fast and knowledgeable. We all had a great time and will for sure use them again.

“Shockingly Poor, Unknowledgeable Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

We may have just hit an off night, but what an off night it was. After 30 years of traveling the world, including twice crisscrossing the US, this became the first restaurant we have ever walked out of. Without going in to too much detail, let it suffice to say that from the moment we walked in the door it was clear this was not the place for us. When we attempted to tell the manager about the substandard service we were receiving, he was arrogant, defensive and had no interest in correcting the situation – his only objective was to defend his server. In fact, that was when we decided to leave.

While we cannot comment on the food, as we weren’t there long enough to try it, we can say that the champagne we ordered to begin was close to flat. All and all, this restaurant is anything but a fine dining establishment. We left and went about 10 minutes to the suburbs and had a lovely Chinese dinner. Let me also say that if you want to stay in the downtown area so you can walk to dinner, do not go to OKC on a Sunday.

I can't thank you enough for your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience. I think your first sentence sums it up.It was an "off night" indeed which is outside our normally extremely high standards of service and quality of food. I am very sorry you did not have the opportunity to experience our terrific restaurant as it is intended. We hope you will visit us and our awesome City again in the future. Thank you for your feedback. It has been shared with our Team.

“Great food and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

i went to Park Avenue Grill for lunch on Thanksgiving, and even though it was a holiday, you could not tell by the service. Everything was top notch, from the servers all the way up to the manager. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a quality meal in the OKC area.
