One of my favorite places for just about any occasion!
The food, service, and atmosphere was the best that I've received in a Soul Food Restaurant in a long time. The food was hot and cooked to order, no need to add any seasoning just hot sauce. Florence's provides a true down home family atmosphere with friendly staff (Kayla) and courtesy service attentive to the small things. The group that I was with had an opportunity to meet and take pictures with the founder/owner, who still manages the kitchen. Looking forward to my next visit to OKC!!!!
I can't say that I would recommend this restaurant to anyone I know. They had the best crab cakes I have ever tasted and the other seafood was great, but everything else was mediocre at best. Prices are too high for what you get. The waiter was absolutely awful. The place was almost empty yet we barely saw him at all, he would take our drinks that weren't quite empty and leave us without one for over 15 minutes. I looked often and he wasn't helping the other patrons either so I have no idea what he was doing. After getting us the check, we waited nearly 20 minutes for him to come back to take our card to run so we could actually leave. On top of it all, they charged a 20% gratuity automatically for this "service". There was no manager or any authority figure available to address these concerns either. If you love 17.00 crab cakes and being ignored, give this place a try; otherwise i suggest you go ANYWHERE but here.
For a very special meal, this is the place to go. Try the "cookies" before your meal for a treat. Outstanding wine list and food that is out of this world! Very expensive but well worth it.
