Metro Wine Bar & Bistro
Excellent food and service.Excellent food and service. The halibut special was wonderful. The cocktails we ordered before dinner were right on. An overall highly enjoyable evening.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNight of SurprisesDinner was remarkably delicious; staff was incredibly courteous and professional; one glass of wine turned into numerous glasses as the cabernet was a surprising twist to extending an evening of fun and laughter for 2 friends simply indulging in delictable food, drink, dessert, and fun. Thank you to Metro for a night that lasted much longer than expected!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent, now betterThe (relatively) new chef is hitting it out of the park. I had the daily special of soft shelled crab over a cassoulet and it was outstanding. My wife had the short ribs cooked sous vide and served over polenta (from the seasonal menu)--she moaned repeatedly during dinner.
We began with the watermelon salad--light, tasty,refreshing, and ended with the mixed berries/shortcake which had both creme anglaise and whipped cream!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA"go to" spot!The many times I've dined here, only one meal was less than stellar. It was a daily fish special ordered by all 4 at the table - staff/management was immediately responsive and corrected the situation beyond our satisfaction. When deciding on a lunch or dinner spot, The Metro always makes the short list or is the agreed to - absolutely consistent in superior quality and atmosphere!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGo there!As always, an excellent place for dinner. Good everything!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Oklahoma City classic.An Oklahoma City classic. A neighborhood institution.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great Meal!Food and service were excellent as always. You always feel at home here.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, but some disappointmentVisited for our 40th anniversary. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" by the host, but nothing else was said or done to make us feel special. The table was not very private, despite my request for that in the reservation. With the exception of the vichyssoise soup, (which my husband returned and substituted the avocado-cucumber soup, which was terrific) all the food was very good. Service overall was good, but not exceptional. We used to come to this restaurant more frequently in past years, but stopped when we felt the food quality had declined. At least that seems to have improved over time recently. We were disappointed that our anniversary was not further acknowledged., as is done in most restaurants.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellentI can always count on the Metro for excellent food, service and atmosphere. I never get tired of eating here. I have never had a bad meal and will return again and again.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, but not a great valueThis was our second time at Metro and my opinion has been confirmed - this is not the best food that can be had in OKC for this price. The atmosphere and service are great, the dessert(especially the bread pudding) are wonderful, but the dinners themselves, while good, don't reach out and grab me as they should. All in all, we were paying $50 per person for 1 glass of wine, shared dessert, and a decent dinner in a romantic spot. $50 per person will get you so much more at other places around town- so while I would recommend Metro to causal diners who can afford to drop some dough for a nice wine list and reasonably good food - If you're looking for a life changing meal, look elsewhere.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistently outstanding.Always consistently outstanding. Great staff, ownership and a good time is always had by all!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMetroI love the Metro. Sam was our waiter and he did a great job. Wish him well on his time in China. Great food and great service always.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMTraditionMetro was always a favorite when I lived in OKC. I now live in Kansas City, but return to OKC to visit as often as possible. It has become a tradition to take my hosts for a lovely evening at Metro to thank them for their hospitality. Metro never disappoints. Food, service, ambiance-----tops!! Haven't found anything in Kansas City to surpass it.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMetro lunchThis is always a wonderful place to eat.

The wait staff make you feel welcome and special, and the service was spectacular. Your rolls are the best. I tried a new wine recommend by our waitress and I loved it...she understands her customers and had good knowledge of the wine list.
Our group of eight people had a birthday and two anniversary celebrations, we agreed we will come back to the Metro for future celebrations.

It is even better if you are the guest of honor. The Metro and its wait staff made us feel like we were the center of attention. They were thoughtful and generous with their recommendations and their side notes about the wine and food. They have even tried the wines and food. It was an amazing and fun evening. Well done!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDoesn't get better than this.It just doesn't get any better than the Metro. Want a casual dinner? Go. What to get dolled up and have a special night out? Go.
