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.

Paseo Arts
About the restaurant
Eating is a community experience. Like art, our restaurant is only as strong as the people who support it. We aren’t in the Paseo by accident. This place is home: filled with all walks of like-minded life that love to eat, drink and laugh the same way we do.

That also goes for our vendors. We’re not just local because of who owns the kitchen. We buy our fresh ingredients from local purveyors and farmers, too. It’s our way of giving back to the same economy that keeps us going.

Fantastic experience! Everything was exactly what we hoped for. We made reservations for 14 for my son’s graduation family dinner and they had the room ready for us. The food came out in a timely manner and was absolutely delicious. A very pleasant night with zero stress or complaints!
