Exterior of Signature Grill in Edmond, Oklahoma City

With three small boys at home and limited budgets, my wife and I don’t get out for fancy dining too often. On the rare occasions we have a special night out, there’s always a bit of a debate about where to go. She likes to stick with places she knows and I like to try new things. Fortunately, I was able to convince her to try the Signature Grill a while back. After dining here, we both agreed we had found a new favorite.

The outside of Signature Grill is misleading. You see, it sits in a strip mall. It’s a very nice strip mall on the far north side of Edmond, but still, the exterior gives you no hint of the treasure that lies inside.

Walk into the restaurant, however, and you enter a whole new world. The small, cozy dining area is decorated in deep, rich, modern colors. A wall of windows on the far end lets you glance into the gleaming kitchen. I absolutely love the interior of Signature Grill. For me, it walks a perfect balance. It’s upscale without being overtly ornate; intimate yet still vibrant.

From the moment we entered, service was impeccable. Given the rather small dining area, I was surprised at the number of staff I saw actively working to provide dedicated attention to each table. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and made excellent recommendations. Everyone we encountered throughout the evening was extremely friendly.

Needless to say, the food was very impressive as well. My wife declared it the best meal she’s had in Oklahoma City. To really appreciate this statement you have to understand that my wife doesn’t really like to eat out much and rarely finds a place to which she would return. But this one was special. Everything we had was exceptionally flavorful, beautifully presented, and served at exactly the right temperature.

All entrees at Signature Grill come with two side items. You can even choose their side salad or Caesar salad as one of your side items if you wish. For my meal, I had the 8oz Beef Tenderloin (Filet) with Smoked Blue Cheese and Cabernet Sauvignon wine reduction. For sides, I chose the Caesar Salad and the Bacon and Crimini Mushroom Risotto. All of this for $32. Now, $32 is not cheap, but compare this to a higher-end steakhouse where the filet by itself would likely cost closer to $40. I found the value at Signature Grill to be outstanding.

The filet was a very thick, hand-cut steak expertly cooked. The smoky flavor of the blue cheese made for a luxurious flavor with the wine reduction. It was strong, but not too much in my opinion. Next time, I might like to try the green peppercorn brandy sauce which is typically served on their Beef Tenderloin Medallions but which our server told me could be used on the filet as well.

The risotto I chose was plated beside the filet. Let me just say, this side item is a must try. In fact, my fellow writer, Sarah, and her husband dined at Signature Grill shortly after I did on my recommendation, and they both agreed that “when you go, you HAVE to get the risotto!” It is creamy, delicious and very rich. Sarah said she was almost full after the two bites she stole from her husband’s plate. I, of course, ate the whole thing.

My Caesar salad was perhaps the best I’ve ever had. I don’t often get too excited about a salad, but this one hit me with the bold flavors of its traditional anchovy dressing. The Caesar dressing was just the right amount and evenly distributed over every bit of lettuce as if someone had meticulously painted it on. It’s the attention to details like this that impressed me throughout my meal at Signature Grill.

My wife chose the Pan Seared Chicken which had a wine and herb flavor. It was very simple, but cooked just right. She loved it and, again, she is not easily impressed. Her favorite side item were the scalloped potatoes, which she said were the best she’s ever had. She also had a side of the asparagus and tomatoes.

Sarah’s husband had the crab bisque as one of his sides, which he said he could eat every night of the week. Sarah had a side of stuffed tomatoes with goat cheese and spinach which she said were among the best things she’s ever eaten in her life. Their entrees were the Alaskan Halibut topped with lump crab meat and toasted panko ($32) and the Beef Tenderloin Medallions ($28). Oh, and we also had desserts. We had the Creme Brulee and Sarah had the Coconut Cream Cake which she described as “so pretty I could have taken a nap in it.”

As you can see, our two couples tried a lot of different things on two separate occasions and, in all cases, Signature Grill delivered amazing food wrapped up in delightful experiences. It’s not often I get so excited about a new local find, but as I said before, this one is special. I can’t wait to go back, and I highly recommend you give them a try when you’re looking for a special night out.

    Signature grill is our favorite restaurant. We ate there the second week open and have been many times since. Beautiful food and beautiful people! I almost hate that people are finding out about it – but I am happy to see the restaurant thrive.

    Love the tenderloin. All the seafood dishes are great! My wife LOVES the duck confit appetizer. You should try the chorizo green beans – yes weird I know – but great!

    Truly a wonderful place!

    I agree it’s some of the best food in the state. Nice small intimate setting, that was not so loud as to drown out all table conversation. We went with another couple and arranged it so that we were able to order every single side dish offered and then passed them all around so that everyone got a taste. After all was said and done I enjoyed the green beans with Chorizo. It was a perfect night of friends and great food. No one at the table was disappointed with their entrĂ©e which varied from fish, steak, chicken, pork. The wait staff was top notch as well, very helpful, attentive and pleasant, but managed to be invisible but attentive when the food was presented. Always a good trait that the glass was never empty and I was not constantly being asked if I wanted something it just got there.

    Signature Grill is my fovorite restaurant! The scallopes are seared to perfection and so moist in the inside; better that my mom’s (sorry mom!)! The Duck is my favorite though!
    The owners always make me feel right at home. The service, the food and the atmosphere are PERFECT every time! And, Craig makes the BEST Cosmo!!!!

    Absolutely love Signature Grill. You won’t find better tasting food anywhere in OKC. The chef’s wife meets you at the door and is precious. You can see the chef from your table preparing your food.

    Clay & Jess,

    So lovely to read this exuberant review of your success with Signature Grill. Your efforts have been outstanding!

    This is a great restaurant when my wife and I are kid-free for the evening as the quarters are a bit cramped and it doesn’t have that children-friendly vibe. The owners make this place special. Besides too much butter and salt, everything we’ve tried is very flavorful. We got hooked on the sea bass and rotisserie chicken but for some reason (seasonal change perhaps) they were removed from the menu. Recommended!

    My husband and I went to Signature Grill last night for our anniversary. We were very pleased with the food and prices. My risotto was so delicious, the filet just melted in your mouth, and the chocolate dessert was the perfect ending! My husband got the stuffed chicken and he raved about it the whole way home. The small size of the restaurant adds to its charm. This will definitely become our go-to spot for special dinners!

    We had a VERY impressive meal here.

    Nothing avant-garde; familiar upscale American cuisine. But it was executed with a finesse, depth of flavor, and ingredient quality that are hard to match in this city.

    Signature Grill is a sleeper! If you’re a serious foodie, you need to check it out. Highly recommended.
