- HSPSVIPDined on 10/11/2014The Metro again was wonderful. We met another couple here for dinner on Saturday evening. Had a nice quiet table in the tapestry room so we could catch up on conversation. The seasonal special of halibut was very good and the diver scallop as an evening special was excellent. Service, as always, was very good.Special Features:

- A consistent favorite!GizmoDined on 9/19/2014Love this restaurant; it has never failed in its ability to have delicious food, great wine list, attentive service, wonderful ambience and more!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/14/2014I met a friend for our first date. That was the first time I've been there and was impressed. She had been there before because she recommended it. I will do the same. Also, I love to cook and get many ideas from dining out. That was the first time I had risotto. It was wonderful and am attempting to make it myself tonight along with Braised Beef Burgandy. I would have made it last night except the Chuck has to marinate 16-24 hours. The food was awesome, the environment was quiet, the service was great, and I will return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food and AmbienceJoannVIPDined on 9/7/2014The food was delicious. I ordered the Sunday Supper. The cod was cooked to perfection and flavorful and the Ozark pudding was terribly good and terribly fattening and I've been walking on the treadmill ever since. This is the third time we've been to The Metro and we plan to go back many times more. The room was full of people but really not particularly loud and the service was great!!! Thanks, Metro!Special Features:
- My daughters 20th birthday dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/6/2014My daughter is a student at OU. I wanted to take her someplace special for her birthday. Being from Dallas, I'm not familiar with Oklahoma City so I went on trip advisor and looked up the best of the best in OKC and hit the jackpot when I picked The Metro Wine Bar and Bistro!! The moment we arrived they wished my daughter a "Happy Birthday" and the evening just got better from there!! My daughter had the salmon and I had the shrimp and scallop risotto, both dishes were stunningly delicious!! For dessert they brought my daughter a wonderful chocolate fudge cake and I had the bread pudding, both were delish!! It was the perfect mother/daughter evening, very enjoyable and memorable!! Thanks for going above and beyond for our special occasion!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Date NightMetroVIPDined on 9/5/2014This is the place we go for Date Night ... always something special & service is off the chart!Special Features:
- DissapointedcancelledDined on 9/4/2014Our reservations were cancelled by the restaurant the morning of the lunch (even though they had been confirmed by email the night before) due to "some work that wasn't completed." Poor management performance.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- A little offLunchieDined on 8/18/2014I love the metro and have always enjoyed the food and overall atmosphere. This lunch was a little off though. I had the cod and quinoa special. The fish was delicious but the quinoa and fish were both very, very salty. So much so I didn't finish my lunch. My reservation was at 1 and our server would disappear for long stretches. By the time we left the restaurant was mostly empty and our server was occupied with turning tables and resetting. We ordered dessert as it was a birthday and it took forever. Disappointed in the Metro this trip.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best place in NW OKC!DaddydocDined on 8/16/2014This has always been a favorite of ours! Dependably excellent service and food is always outstanding! Don't pass up dessert either--best cheesecake I've ever eaten!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always greatWmanDined on 8/16/2014Some may view the Metro as a "special occasion" place, but we don't. It's just too good for that, we just go whenever an outstanding evening of dining is in order. My wife has the butter fish special and I had the flounder, both fish that require excellent preparation, not a problem at the Metro, however. Everything was perfect, the service was friendly and efficient. We will look forward to our next visit - won't be long!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A Lovely DinnerYumYum1VIPDined on 8/15/2014A friend and I recently enjoyed dinner at Metro Wine Bar and Bistro. We had an early dinner reservation (7PM), but by the time we left, (9:30PM), the restaurant was full of diners. Our dinner was lovely, well prepared, fresh, and imaginatively conceived. I settled on a wine flight with my meal because the wines were excellent and interesting. Our server was timely, solicitous and attentive, but not cloying…I would say, a perfect server. I was too full to try dessert..but I definitely will return and remember to leave room to share a dessert, to finish off another meal. I always return to Metro, because of the restaurant's consistency, creativity and inviting atmosphere.Special Features:
- Hit & MissOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/15/2014This was our first visit and overall liked it! I ordered the salmon with green beans and mashed potatoes, it was excellent. My husband ordered steak and frites; the steak was over cooked and had no flavor. Excellent wine list!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- AnniversaryokcdinerDined on 8/14/2014First time to Metro. Flounder dish was outstanding. Steak frites was just OK. We will return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- HSPSVIPDined on 8/14/2014Again, a wonderful experience at. The Metro. My wife had the diver scallop special and I had the duck on the seasonal menu. Both entrees were excellent. We shared a delicious Oregon Pinot and closed with the chocolate cake.Special Features:
- Reliably OutstandingleftyDined on 8/10/2014Have been a regular for 15 years, and Metro is my "go to" standard for a consistently excellent dining experience for business and pleasure. Out of town visitors from places with sophisticated dining ootions (NYC, Philly, London UK) are always impressed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday CelebrationEating4FunDined on 8/9/2014Anytime we make the trip to the Metro from Norman, we know it will be worth the trip. The food was fish special was incredible. We look forward to our next experience.Special Features:
- Locals love it here!CactuspalDined on 8/9/2014Excellent service, food, and wine list. Many patrons were local and new the proprietors. Do get a reservation or may be a wait.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always a favoriteVanceDDined on 8/8/2014The Metro is one of the most consistently excellent restaurants in the OKC metro. A diverse menu complimented with creative chef specials appeals to a wide range of tastes. A creative wine list additionally offers many new tasting experiences via "wine flights". Professional service, well-prepared food in a cozy, lively dining area makes for a dependably memorable experience. Highly recommended.Special Features:
- OverratedLoveGreatFoodVIPDined on 8/4/2014I was disappointed in the quality of the food. The crab cakes were deep fried, and it didn't indicate such on the menu. I never would have ordered them. Then, there was insufficient sauce.
- A1 serviceJackstaDined on 8/2/2014Service was impeccable, Brandon was on top of his game. The food was also great even though I ordered a medium well fillet and it was well, it still was tender. Great bar !! We will definitely be back. Note my waiter offered to get me another steak.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Was a great experience...iamafoodieDined on 8/2/2014Loved everything about this place! Great food and service!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very nice eveningTulsairishVIPDined on 8/2/2014The location is easy to get to, parking was easy. We were pleased with the service. Knowledgable staff, very attentive without being overbearing. The meal, as always, was very good. We have never been disappointed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- It doesn't get any better1stTimeLastTimeDined on 7/31/2014My business partner and I were fortunate to find this place. As foodservice design consultants, we travel often and are always seeking out restaurants that are both local and, hopefully, exceptional. We are not always successful in finding these gems. However, for this dinner, we cannot give higher marks for the great wine list, expertly and creatively prepared foods, and attentive service. We arrived, on a Thursday evening, and found the place intimate and busy. This is the sort of place that made me wish I had been in the company of my wife, instead of my biz partner. It's just that good. When I am in Oklahoma City, again, I will be back here, again. This place really "gets its right."Special Features:
- Metro is always great..FoodieDined on 7/26/2014Chris and LaVeryl (and Sam) always make you feel welcome!Special Features:
- jakeeatsDined on 7/23/2014Excellent dinner and excellent service. Some in our group had food allergies and our server was extremely diligent about checking with the chef to ensure compliance with our needs. This is our go-to restaurant when we want to be assured of great food and service.I would recommend this to a friend.
- CelebrateHaroldDined on 7/23/2014We had a party of 6 (4 adults and 4 children), celebrating a significant career accomplishment for our son, one of the adults. Our table was ready for us, with a high chair for the toddler, when we arrived. The food was excellent, and the service was very good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious!VIckieH22Dined on 7/19/2014My first visit there and I was pleased all around!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great nightGeorgeDined on 7/18/2014Great meal and service. Friendly waitstaff. Had the opa special-fantastic.Special Features:
- HmmmmmmOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 7/14/2014I usually enjoy the Metro and am hesitant to give a poor review but my meal was really not up to the standards of the Metro. We were seated at a booth at the end of the bar. I was worried that it would be noisy but this wasn't the case. I was disappointed in the service, however the place was packed for a Monday night. It was French Independence Day; perhaps this was the reason. My steak was overcook and tough. Had it not been a very long day I would've returned it to the kitchen. I just didn't have the energy for the battle, nor the patience to wait for a replacement. My husband's meal was also below what we've come to expect from The Metro. We will be back, of course, but OKC is full of great places to eat and competition is fierce.Special Features:
- Always wonderful!Maddog1Dined on 7/14/2014You can always count on The Metro for a wonderful evening. The drinks are great, the menu is diverse and the service superb! And, they have the best rolls in town. My FAVOR8!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
