Contemporary American
The Metro Wine Bar & Bistro has been at the cutting edge of food and wine in Oklahoma City for over twenty five 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 seven nights a week for dinner... and every weekday for lunch. We are open all afternoon on weekdays for a late lunch, early dinner or just wine & cocktails.

The Metro almost never disappointments. The seasonal menu for the fall 2020 features their wonderful butternut squash bisque - which happily does not taste like pumpkin pie but has a more savory flavor - and a bone-in pork chop accompanied by Swiss chard and polenta. It is a wonderful paring of fall flavors! The fresh and hot crusty rolls are always a treat with the side of creamy butter. There is a nice selection of wines by the glass at reasonable prices. Service is attentive but not distracting. I do recommend reservations.

As always The Metro is the best place in town to have dinner for 2 or 3 or 4 or 50! Chris Lower and his team provide the ambience, the delicious food and the wonderful wine selection in the best possible ways.

Great flounder filet and bone in pork chop, but the wine selection by the glass and bottle with a very knowledgeable wait staff are the true assets.

The greeter/host was rude, I called to tell them I would be 20 mins late for reservation. When arriving they asked if we would be able to finish dinner by 1 hour and 15 mins. I said I think so and he replied you better be finished by then.

My favorite thing about the Metro is the service. The wait staff is always aware but tend not to intrude which is the opposite of most places where staff want to be included in the experience. Second thing is the delicious food. I had the chef seasonal special which was a butterfish. I'd never had this white, dense fish before. The preparation was outstanding! Another wonderful experience that keeps the Metro at the top of our list!

Metro is always great for date night, but they truly made us feel special on our anniversary. The staff are so attentive and welcoming. It helps that the food and wine are always on point; we’ve been impressed every time we’ve visited.

This is my friend's choice because of the social distancing and the extensive lengths to which the folks at Metro take to keep their customer's safe. Without a doubt super service, terrific french onion soup, lobster sandwich and curried chicken salad at lunch! The waffle chips were terrific and our other friend loved the French Fries. We have lunch here frequently. Just super!

We stopped overnight in OKC on a cross-country road trip. How lucky were we to find The Metro Wine Bar & Bistro! Absolutely everything about it was perfect. The beautiful decor and nice jazz playing, terrific service and amazing food. My husband and I could not find one thing to fault with this restaurant. Our server and the owner both made us feel like we were neighborhood regulars. I wish we could be regulars here. Outstanding evening.

Trevor’s service was outstanding without being obtrusive. The steak and quail entrees were perfectly prepared. It was not loud. It was not bright. It’s just a classy place that’s easy to dine in and worth the price. Add it to your go to portfolio of restaurants.

We saw all their great reviews on Opentable and thought that we'd give it a go. It's a quaint little spot right on the edge of the Nichols Hills neighborhood. Food, ambiance, and service were impeccable. It's a white table cloth place but not too stuffy. We'll definitely be back on our next trip to OKC. Highly recommend.
