    Steak flavor was good, quality of meat was avg. nice cheest plate, nice Charcuterie plate Wine selection was good Salmon very good Rissoto was amazing I would say one of the top 5 Restaurants in OKC. Creme Brulee gets a 3 out of 5 which is pretty good, I have only had a 5 once (in Detroit) and have never had a 4 , I will eat here again Definitely ,

    We were celebrating our marriage and had requested a cozy corner table which was just right for the two of us. For special occasions this is great. Food and service was wonderful and we even had food left over to take home as well as the delicious bread pudding which we requested it to go. We ate it the next day, and with the server's suggestion on how to reheat etc. it was just wonderful. Thanks for making our experience very memorable.

    The staff reserved a table (for six) for us in the upper level of the dining area because I requested a table to be in a quieter area of the restaurant so we could hear each other without shouting. The table was perfect for us. I had soup and halibut. Both were delicious. I liked the warm crusted bread and the rosemary-infused butter. The complimentary birthday creme brule was both artfully presented and delightful. It was a wonderful setting for a special occasion. Last but not least, our server was very pleasant.

    I love this restaurant! Its lighting is low, ambiance awesome. It is possible to chat with your table and not feel like you're shouting to other surrounding tables. The menu does not change all that often, but the specials are always spot on.

    The menu was limited and surprisingly the wine selection was also. Wine by the bottle was expensive, but if you like to purchase wine by the ounce this is the place. The food was quite good and the atmosphere and ambiance were nice.

    Our experience was perfect!!!! I tried a wine and didn't really like it, so the manager brought me a taste of another so I would be happy! He knew exactly which one to bring when I told him what I liked. Also, the bar tender picked a beer for my husband and he loved it. The food was amazing, very different and full of flavor!!! The wait staff was very attentive and took very good care of us!!! Wonderful visit!! Will be back!!

    My wife and I were searching for a place to take our daughter for her 21st birthday. The TripAdvisor reviews did not steer us wrong; Metro Wine Bar was fantastic. To begin with, we liked that it was small and we didn't have to walk blocks to the restaurant and/or fight for a parking spot. We were greeted immediately and our table was ready. It took a few minutes for our waiter to get to our table but after that the service was great. The wine, the food and the dessert were all outstanding. The evening was exactly what we wanted it to be and personalized dessert plate topped off the dinner; my daughter was beaming. We'll return to this restaurant again.

    The 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.

    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!

    My 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!!

    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.
