The Mantel Wine Bar and Bistro
On the Mantel CaseProudly 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.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and AtmosphereMantel 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!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA Special TreatMy 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.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Bricktown spotFood and service never fail to exceed expectations. This place never disappoints.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOKC 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.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful evening!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.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMProbably the best meal weProbably 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!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have never had a bad mealWe have never had a bad meal or bad service at the Mantel.

The lobster bisque is a must!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was a young ladyOur server was a young lady named Amanda. I know Amanda from another restaurant and was always pleased with her attention. She as well as the rest of the staff were polite, attentive and yet non-intrusive.
A wonderful first date experience.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHit the area early in theHit the area early in the evening before the crowds came so sat at the bar. Nice glass of Syrah, excellent tenderloin of beef done exactly as ordered and a really good salad. No bread offered but I was watching my carbs so no problem. A pot of decaf coffee was put on for me and weakening, I ordered the Creme Brule. The dessert's consistency suggested that it was made days before and the top was not crackly like a Brule should be. That was the only negative to good meal. I wouldn't hesitate to go back but I'd skip the desserts.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMVery accommodating to ourVery accommodating to our group. Delicious food although two in our group ordered the filet and didn't like the mustard flavor in the sauce. Everything I had was super delish! For a wine bar, I've had more choices by the glass although the selections we made were all very good. OKC is fortunate to have this gem. I've dined there a few times and have never not had a great meal and dining experience.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food at The Mantel isThe food at The Mantel is always great. This wasn't the first time though, that there was a big gap of time between our salads and our main courses arriving. I know they were busy because everyone was trying to get away to go to the Clapton concert, as were we. We made it in time, but felt rushed while eating. And it was too good to rush through! I would still recommend it, but maybe not if you have somewhere to be at a certain time.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI think this is one of theI think this is one of the better restaurants in OKC. The food was delicious and the service was very good. I have no complaints.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently one of our favoriteConsistently one of our favorite restaurants.
