    I 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.

    The 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!

    Our 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.

    Lunchie
    Dined on 8/18/2014
    I 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.

    Some 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!

    A 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.

    The 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.

    I 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.

    My 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."

    I 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.
