    So glad to have a seat in the newer section (previously La Baguette). It was much quieter than main room (which is really TOO LOUD). Food was great, service was spectacular. LOVED IT!

    The place is basically Whiskey Cake with a fine arts degree. The staff was incredibly rude. Waitress gave us the side-eye for asking to switch to a smaller table because they tried sitting two people at a table for eight. No one bothered to check on our table after sitting down, so we decided to go somewhere else.

    This was my first trip to Black Walnut. The food and service was top notch. It is very open concept so the noise level is pretty high. The menu isn’t very large but everything we ordered was fabulous. They only have one dessert but, like everything else we ordered, it was super yummy! I will definitely go back. If you haven’t been, go!

    We had to ask for a waiter to order our drinks after almost 10 min. The food is wonderful. We could not hear the waiter or ourselves talk very well. Too loud and poor acoustics.

    Everyone including waiter Mike were friendly. Pretty drab decor, poor acoustics so it gets loud pretty quick if restaurant is busy. Food was tasty, and the meal was enjoyable. Parking was somewhat inconvenient as had to park in parking garage. The long wait for our food was the biggest problem.

    Were able to provide our group of 6 after making a reservation that morning. They need to install some sort of acoustic noise deadening panels since it was hard for our group to communicate. Drink service was extremely slow. Food was average. Some dishes provided too much and others not enough.

    Best food in OKC. We chose this restaurant for a double date with sister and brother in law over the traditional upscale steakhouse and we all loved it! The steak was fantastic, the drinks fab, the vegetarian dishes satisfying and complex. Highlight: the walnut cake. You have to try it. Bravo! An outstanding dining experience all around.

    The restaurant was packed and they had only one bartender on duty so drinks were on backorder (as per the waitress). The buildout of the restaurant allows for lots of noise. People laughing at the end of the restaurant could be heard by us, clear as day. I got a headache from the noise level, mainly drunk people not realizing how loud they were. The food was ok, nothing memorable. I had the lavender chicken which had a serious after taste. After the 4th bite, I couldn't eat it anymore. When they gave us our drinks - water or otherwise - there were no coasters. As a result, there lots of mini puddles on the table due to the condensation of the drinks. I took my BF here for his bday and ended up apologizing. Absolutely will not be returning here ever again.

    We had made reservations for my wife’s birthday but never had it mentioned once we arrived. We were seated in a corner table next to the kiosk where all of the waiters enter their orders. We were so crowded in that corner and constantly had butts in our faces from the waiters congregating there. It got so bad that we had to scoot the table several feet away on our own. They were out of nearly every wine we asked for. The appetizers were OK. The main courses were nothing spectacular. The only thing that saved our meal was our waiter who was doing his best given what he had to work with. For this price it’s better to just stick to someplace with a proven track record. We wanted to like our experience here but it fell far short of expectations, especially for a special occasion.
