We have never had a bad meal
We have never had a bad meal or bad service at the Mantel. This is one of our favorite places to eat because of the consistency of the quality service and food.

Probably the best meal we have ever had. I had the duck, my boyfriend had the halibut special. Both were sublime, we both said over and over just how delicious it was. It was a nice quiet, romantic, fun little spot. Next time we are in okc we will be back!

Our waiter (John, I believe) was very quick, knowledgeable and efficient. We had a wonderful dinner and he had great suggestions. It is a bonus that he knew so much about the menu as well as the drink menu. We arrived early and were also seated early with no waiting. We certainly appreciate that! Our food was plentiful - we couldn't eat it all! It was a wonderful visit with very tasty menu items. Fried green tomatoes and New York strip were very well presented and so good.

OKC Hidden Gem!!!
We have been going here for a few years now. Always a great and romantic atmosphere. Ask for Jen or John as your server, they are the best you'll find anywhere. The Ribeye steak and Moscow Mules are always great choices.

Food and service never fail to exceed expectations. This place never disappoints.

Great Food and Atmosphere
Mantel Wine Bistro is our favorite Bricktown restaurant. Our family has eaten there numerous times and it has never been less than superb. We have always been happy here but the updated menu has continued to improve everything. We would also say that the chef at Mantel is truly gifted and we would recommend trying some of the new dishes-they are outstanding. I would strongly recommend the steaks and the seared tuna. Also, if you are a fan of mussels-you must have them here!!

A Special Treat
My wife and I were celebrating a "special" birthday and were not disappointed. I had the roast duck breast and my wife had the halibut . Both dishes were excellent. There was an excellent choice of wines by the glass and we both enjoyed a lovely Pinot Noir. Although the interior was a little dark the overall ambience was very pleasant -- low noise level making conversation easy. The service was excellent -- not hurried but timely, courteous and attentive. The prices were not inexpensive but were reasonable. We highly recommend The Mantel for a special evening dining experience.

On the Mantel Case
Proudly display "The Mantel Wine Bar and Bistro" on the Mantel case. We almost made a mistake by having our Mothers Day experience outside but chose inside instead. Great ambience, unique food, and service was best in class.

Everything was perfect! We were given soup samples that our Chef Garrett had created himself. It was absolutely AMAZING! I will be going back again and again & always bringing friends.

Romantic and low lit!!
Great for couples, good wait staff, great wine list and good food!

Great food and great atmosphere. Chose the Mantel for an anniversary dinner and could not have picked a better location. This is definitely one of the best places to eat/drink in OKC.

We left our first open table reservation at the Skirvin and I am happy to say Open Table got us right in to one of our favorite stand by resturaunts The Mantel. The food and service was Great.

Bad to the Bone
The bone in fillet is legendary, great wine list, awesome service, wished we lived here.

Joined up with another couple.
Mantles is not a chain. It has everything you want in fine dining experience: relaxed environment with outstanding menu, service, and ambiance.
We've been there before with friends and customers- first class operation. Glad to see it in OKC!

As always, we enjoyed our evening there. The food is always good, service is too.

Steak cooked perfectly
I ordered filet mignon (8oz) medium rare. It was cooked perfectly. Excellent sides and service.
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding Dining Experience
The Mantle is conveniently located in Bricktown. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was exceptional, and the service was phenomenal.
6/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Metal tasting lobster bisque
The staff was great, however the cooks were in a great needed of tasting their own food. The lobster bisque tasted like a cup a metallic cream, while the mashed potatoes were crusted with salt. I am far from being a god critic. But I I think I would save the money I spent on this meal and go to Logan's for a steak. How disappointing!
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night out
The server was especially friendly and curtious. He answered all the questions I had about the menue.

I was visiting a friend in OKC and we went out to dinner. The wait at our first restaurant was over an hour, so I searched Opentable for other options. I made the reservation at Mantel's and was greeted by a very pleasant hostess and waitstaff. All three courses of our meal were superb! I highly recommend Mentel's, and will surely return on my next visit to OKC.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and it was the perfect setting for us. The food was great and the service outstanding.
We were not rushed and it was great to have the parking at the same location with the restaurant.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food is inventive and memorable. Each dish has wonderful flavor .Presentation is excellent. Service staff quite knowledgeable about the dishes and wine list. A comfortable restaurant where you feel appropriately dress from nice casual to business attire to formal dress.

Wonderful food, service, and ambiance. The sea scallops were excellent.

Excellent Anniversary Dinner
We had an unbelievable dinner here. I had the 14oz bone in filet and my husband had the 12oz filet! They were melt in your mouth and cooked perfect! I had two diver sea scallops with my filet and they were the most amazing scallops I've ever had! The flavor was outstanding! My husband had the parmesean truffle fries with his and they were also very good! To start I had the Lobster chowder and it was so rich and tasty and then for dessert we had the creme brulee and it was a perfect finish to our meal! HIGHLY Recommend!!!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service!
Food was excellent and the service was outstanding! Excellent wine list! Be prepared to drop at least $100 for two people. The atmosphere wasn't nearly as private and romantic as you would expect at such an upscale establishment, but does have a nice ambiance about it. Overall, great dining experience. Will definitely go back, but only for special occasions due to the price.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent as always
We went to the Mantel to celebrate my wife's birthday. I requested a table towards the back and upon arrival were taken straight there. My wife had the filet of beef and I had the special which was salmon. Food was excellent as always.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We tried several appetizers and they were delicious!! Also I ordered the filet and it was cooked to perfection!
Wonderful night all around.

Never been disappointed
The Mantel is my favorite Bricktown restaurant. You can be dressed up or down and the place just feels like home. Only with gourmet food and impeccable service. Small and intimate and never too noisy so you can have a conversation. The wait staff is attentive yet leave you alone. Plus, they aren't snooty! Love this place!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We thoroughly enjoyed our business lunch at the Mantel Bistro earlier this week. It was my first visit to the restaurant and I will be back. Very comfortable surroundings, good service, excellent food. Thank you. Parking seems to be the only challenge.

Five diamonds for The Mantel
This gem has been at the top of the downtown to do list in OKC for years. And just like the fine wine they serve they are getting better with age. The staff caters to your every need. The management team is constantly moving around to ensure guest satisfaction as well as creating that feeling that you are a celebrity guest in their restaurant. Great job Mantel. Keep it up!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is great
The seared scallops and the pan seared duck breast were fantastic!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
this was our second visit to The Mantel, the service and food are amazing. We recommend this for special occasions and a night of just because.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I like this restaurant because it is smaller, still kind of fancy, the prices are right and the service is great! I especially like the scallops and the 14oz Ribeye. They also have a great spinach salad. I would recommend everybody give Mantle Wine Bar a try. I doubt you will be disappointed
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I spend a lot of time on the road for work, so finding a great restaurant can be difficult. This restaurant had great staff. I was extremely surprised by the 4 cheese chicken pasta I ate. It was probably the best example of that dish I have ever eaten. I was a bit put off by the price, but I was very satisfied after tasting the dish. Yes, the cost here is a bit pricey, but from the example of the quality of the food...You will understand why.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service, a bit loud
We really enjoyed our experience overall. No complaints about the food or service. Some of the other guests were obnoxious, and there seems to be something about the acoustics that makes it easy to hear what is being said around you. I guess they can't do anything about that.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favorite places!
Love the environment, food and experience every time!

Great 1st year anniversary
I had great expectations when I took my wife there for our anniversary and my expectations were more than met. The setting is good (maybe not the best), but I would sit on the curb outside as long as they kept serving the same quality. Really, the food was fantastic. Our server was very good as well.
Both my wife and I loved the lobster bisque, my steak was very good, and my wife's seared scallions were out of this world. Overall this place will be a new go-to for special occasions for us.
Expect around $35 per plate, but unlike most places I had no regrets spending that much for what we received. I would pay more.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was looking at something off
Was looking at something off the menu but the waiter told us about the specials of the night. One of the dinners sounded very good and boom....it was great. Had steak, roasted potatoes, asparagas, and shrimp to complete the plate. It was marvelous! Recommend this to those looking for a fine dining experience.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
On another level.
Service was outstanding. Food was amazing. Its cozy and dim lit. I came here for a date with an old friend and it was exactly what I'd hoped for. I made a special request and it was perfectly executed. 10/10 Full package restaurant.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Small, quaint, good location. Parking could be a problem when events are in Bricktown.
Food was great but keylime pie was too cold, like it had been frozen and thawed even though we were told it was
made there.Salad (Caeser) was fair.The dressing was a bit bland.Salmon was excellent!
We were called picky because we wanted to know what year the wine was.
We have found 2010 Cabs are better than 2011s.

Old Favorite Still Great
The Mantle used to be our favorite fine dining restaurant, but with so many new OKC restaurants to try, it's been awhile since we've been back. Dining there this week reminded me why we like it so much. It's cozy, great wine list, and the food was delicious and elegant. We'll be back soon.

Great date night
We had an excellent time here for date night. The food was delicious and the wait staff were incredibly personable. It was a wonderful experience.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our service was fantastic and our waiter was both attentive and very friendly. I think this is a great place to go if you are there to spend time with your group. Some people may characterize the service as slow (per other reviews) but I think this is really a positive in the days where get you fed and get you out is more common in the industry. I really appreciated this and it added to both the ability to appreciate the abience and the conversation with my date.
My mahi mahi was very good but slightly dry. Salmon was good. Steak tartare was excellent. The "Sicilian sauce" was fantastic. The flavors for each dish were excellent and well put together. You can tell that they care about what they put on the table.

Great evening with friends
We had a birthday dinner for one of our friends and she chose The Mantel. The food was great for everyone but the guest who got the duck. I am a vegetarian and the chef prepared something for me that was awesome. Our wait person was attentive and helpful. Overall it was a great experience. This is one of my favorite restaurants.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was great, wine selection was great..pretty crowded place for a night with bad weather. Not very intimate, but for a party of four just fine.

It was our anniversary and this was the perfect place for us. The food was delicious and the wine and drinks were perfect. The dessert was to die for! Our waiter was so attentive and on top of things We truly thank everyone for a special night.
