    MetBar was relatively full and noisy. We were seated immediately; hostess and server were pleasant. Food had no flavor -- I had the salmon and tuna tartare which I always get at the MetClub in Chestnut Hill. It had no seasoning - no flavor. The entrees came before the appetizer course had been cleared and we had to juggle dishes. Staff needs to be trained better. The décor is haphazard and definitely getting worn. Carpet needed to be cleaned. Definitely not at the standard of other MetBars.

    We had made a reservation for three for a business discussion, requesting a booth located in a somewhat quiet corner. We were seated at a large circular booth area with plenty of space, and away from the crowd. Although still noisy due to the energy in the restaurant, we had a good meeting followed by a good meal. Our waitress was patient as we explained we might be there for a while, and checked in appropriately. Overall the food was excellent (Turkey Kabobs!) with a good wine, beer and drink selection. We made a plan to go there again in six months..same time, same booth!

    We ordered drinks and appetizers along with our dinner - and the dinner food came within just a few minutes of the appetizers. We really never got back to eating the appetizers because of that. Even the wait staff said the food came too quickly. The appetizers were very good - and the dinner and drinks were of top quality as well. Ambiance was nice - not too noisy - but it was a Tuesday. I'd go back again - the service was excellent and attentive.

    Guacamole was better than any mexican restaurant, very fresh, nicely spiced and presented well. Drinks were flat of CO2, sent bak 2 times and were still flat (we have had this problem there before) Burgers are truely outstanding, fresh Brioche Roll, great flavors and steaming hot fries. Chopped salade was adequate but the Italian dressing is Pink and I found that strange. Service was outstanding and the food runner was very attentive and anwsered all my questions. Noise level is high I think due to the bar.

    I'm just going to offer a quick anecdote: I ordered the lettuce wraps and the first bite I took almost shut me down for the night - it was so HOT! I was actually afraid to take another bite. I called a gentleman over (maybe the floor manager?) and he pointed out that the red mini bell pepper garnish was actually a jalapeno! And a really hot jalapeno with maybe some of the juice poured on the wrap. Anyway, the manager (and waitress who'd come over at that point) were emphatic that they would make me another minus any peppers. I just removed the rest of them and the lettuce wraps were delicious (my mouth recovered).

    Having made a reservation for 8:45 I found was unnecessary because the dining room was half empty. So even though there were PLENTY of booths open we were told we HAD to sit at a table. My mother has a bad back and even after expressing that we would even wait for the booths to be cleaned off if needed (which they did not), we were STILL told that they weren't available. So already annoyed at that point it took about 10 minutes before our waitress came over to even acknowledge us and this place already lost me. Drinks were ok, but by the time I wanted a second one, our waitress was no where to be found. Food was ok, but our custom burgers were missing choices and had ones we didn't order- WAY overpriced. I'm all set with ever coming back!

    Dined on 8/10/2014
    A friend and I dined on the patio and were rather disappointed in both the food and service. It took over 10 minutes for our waitress to greet us and take an order for water. She was really nice but I'm not sure if she had too many tables or what. We got guac as an app which was very good, but we both got the bar taco dinner special and were rather disappointed. Granted it's $6 for the meal, but I would expect more from this caliber restaurant. The waitress brought our check without asking how our food was, if we wanted dessert, etc. We'll probably opt for another restaurant at Legacy for our next visit.

    My friend and I went after a movie at Legacy Place...it was between times (3:30pm) on a Saturday and the restaurant was quiet. We were well taken care of, the service was great but not intrusive and our lunch (apps and burgers) were cooked to order and could not have tasted better. We love this place and will be back!

    My husband and I met some friends here because it was about hLfway between us. I ordered the Greek salad with shrimp as my topped and it was $22 which was a bit ridiculous for the salad. The portion was large but it was served over kale and it just threw the whole salad off and was a bit disgusting.

    Im a fan of the Chestnut Hill Met Bar and Grill - which is sadly closing this coming weekend :/ That said, the Dedham Met had the same menu and quality food - had the coulotte (round) steak which was very good. The ambiance is weak - granted I went on a Sunday night in June, but there were only a few older folks at the bar watching World Cup soccer, and a family with little wailing kids sitting outside, so between the two, the atmosphere was - frankly stale. The back of house seating was dim, and unexciting - hardly anyone there. Maybe on a Friday or Saturday night the place has more of a buzz. The server was bouncy, quite informed about the menu, and very attentive.

    The food was overpriced and mediocre at best. Four of us dined, three of us had steaks - all needed salt, seasoning, etc. however the were each cooked the way we ordered. The drinks were good however, particularly the pomegranate mojito. The MET fries were also good - lightly fried with parmesan cheese and sage and served with a spicy mayo. The restaurant was LOUD. Our waitress was great - very patient, honest about food recommendations, and friendly to members of our party who could be a little overwhelming. We'd go back for the fries and a beer or drink, but not for dinner. BTW I added the category review of good for groups only because it's required to add one of the categories to publish the review.

    The Met has an interesting brunch menu along with a unique array of your own self designed Bloody Mary combinations. They as well are very sensitive to catering to the needs of food allergies which we find very helpful in choosing where our party can eat. It was a rather slow Sunday afternoon at the Met with all of the demand for the outdoor dining on the patio and a congregation near the windows by the bar area; as such, the dining area was somewhat sparse; however, a rarity for this place and we kind of enjoyed the quiet surroundings. Always worthy of a visit.

    I've eaten here several times, but hadn't been there recently when I went out for a quick dinner. Despite the fact that the restaurant was mostly empty, the waitress acted like she was doing us a favor to take our order and that was an indication of the level of service to come. When she basically threw the check on the table without a "thank you", her tip went down below my usual percentage. Servers should not underestimate how much the service can affect a patron's enjoyment of a dining experience. I won't be back anytime soon.
