About the restaurant
The Metro Wine Bar & Bistro has been at the cutting edge of food and wine in Oklahoma City for over thirty years. While always evolving and changing, the one constant at The Metro is the world-class food, service and a focus on fine wines paired with our wonderful cuisine.

Drop by for a glass of wine and an appetizer at the bar... or come to spend an evening of great dining. We can be as casual or as formal as the occasion demands.

We are open for dinner Monday through Saturday... and every weekday for lunch. We are open all afternoon on weekdays for a late lunch, early dinner or just wine & cocktails.

The kitchen executed the dishes to perfection. Our group of four had six plates, each had great tastes that were different than the ordinary. The server was knowledgeable of the different dishes, which was helpful. Very enjoyable experience
