There is a new Italian Restaurant in Oklahoma City that is very modern, mixed with an air of old-style charm; Tommy’s Italian American Grill. The restaurant opened in May, and is locally owned.
When you walk through the door, you are immediately greeted by a friendly hostess. The young lady on duty the night we visited the restaurant, truly made us feel welcome, and it showed that she liked her job.
The décor was upscale-casual. You would feel comfortable dressed to the hilt, or in blue jeans.
As we were escorted to our table, we passed a lighted, glassed in case, which went from floor to ceiling. In this exquisitely designed piece, were cradled, at least a hundred bottles of wine. The display will get you thinking about your wine choice before you are even seated.
The tables were nicely set, and the lights were dim, but bright enough to read your menu without a flashlight. The foods were all typical Italian fare, but when a customer goes to an Italian restaurant, they usually go because they are craving traditional Italian dishes.
We were seated at a table in the section where some large groups were sitting. They were enjoying themselves, and laughing, but it was a bit noisy to hear the conversation with my dining companion. When we asked to be seated elsewhere, we were accommodated immediately, in a courteous and professional manner.
Our waiter tried harder to please us than any waiter I have had in a long time. His drawback was he was very nervous, and it showed he did not have the proper training as how to serve in an unobtrusive way. When I asked him about the wine selection, he attempted the best he could to help me, but it was apparent he had not been educated on the wines they were serving. That is the only complaint I have about the restaurant, but it is not much of a complaint, because he was trying, and doing the best he could. With a little more training, that will be an easy problem to solve.
Our food was presented in a very eye-appealing arrangement. It was served hot, fresh, and very pleasing to the palate.
Tommy’s Italian American Grill, is located at 5516 West Memorial Road, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. For a pleasant and welcoming dining experience, try it, you will be glad you did.
