    Comfortable taking a friend who is very picky about his burger. Of course he gave it a thumbs up! Delicious, char-coal flavor on a brioche bun and the soft bleu cheese on mine was a great topping. Happy to have salad as a substitute for fries on the side. Service was friendly. Our request for a four-top at the bar was not a problem even tho the bar was bustling. Espresso martini a nice ending to a good meal.

    Going to Metro Grill on Friday was the perfect ending to a hectic week. Our service was efficient. The star of the show is and will always be the food! There are many selections to choose from and a very nice wine list. My experiences are always satisfying. If you're a foodie, this is a good choice.

    The Metro Grill has a full bar with decent wines by the glass. The food has an Italian focus with some fish and steak. It is simply prepared, very fresh and plenty of it. We split the mussels in a white wine sauce with lots of garlic. House salads were crisp and the dressing was light and tasty. The chicken parmesan was very lightly breaded, big and juicy, with lots of cheese and a good red sauce. The steak was nicely grilled and also very tasty. The staff is always very accommodating and there is usually a good crowd, even on Monday and Tuesday nights. Great neighborhood spot.

    Salad was served on cold plates, which was great. However the salad was made with too much spring mix. Just mix in some romaine or iceberg. Dinner plates should be served on hot plates. Food was warm but not hot. My husband is a big eater and there was just the right amont of food.

    We live and a target rich environment near Princeton New Jersey. Literally hundreds of restaurants compete for your dollars. We were looking for something a little outside of town and stumbled across Metro Grill. I was familiar with Metro-North their sister establishment in Princeton and though I always enjoy their food, their service was somewhat measured. This place is a gem… We will absolutely return there again and again and again…

    They sat us at a bar table despite having reservations. We waited 1hr 15 min for our dinner with no explanation or apologies. When we were done, the waitress came over with the bill and at that time asked if we wanted dessert/coffee etc. We have gone to Metro North and have had much more pleasant experiences.

    My cup of tea tasted like coffee. Obviously the water source was a coffee pot. The Margerita pizza was good. I would eat there again for a business lunch but it is not my first choice be cause of the tea water.

    A great place for locals, established. I would recommend Metro North in Princton if you were willing to make the drive and we're looking for a more eclectic upscale scene and menu.

    We were a party of 8 on a Saturday night. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and attentive. Loved the eggplant tower appetizer, the sea bass entree as well as the shrimp and scallop carbonara. Everyone at the table enjoyed their entree. Can't wait to go back.

    My husband and I have been going to this little neighborhood bar/restaurant for years. We always sit in the bar area to eat, because the vibe is always very friendly and lively. The big surprise here is the food. The food is really very, very good. In fact, their Italian food is among the best I have ever had (and I'm Italian and a foodie!). Their tomato sauce is fresh and the ravioli are homemade and light as a feather. If their eggplant parm is on the large daily specials menu get it! I have never had a dish there that I was disappointed in. They do fish well too. Of course, they have the usual burgers and handmade pizza's, which are always made with the freshest ingredients and are top notch.

    Let me qualify by saying that I am used to eating in excellent restaurants in San Diego county. This restaurant wouldn't last long in the San Diego area. The food was very ordinary. The sauce on my fish made it inedible. The restaurant was a refuge from the ice storm for the local residents without power, but I can't recommend it for any other reason.

    This was my first time, here, after dining occasionally at the Metro North in Princeton. This is a cozier place with a different clientele. I found the food to be just as good, I'd say 3 1/2 to 4 stars, and the wine list, if less extensive, provides a good variety at attractive prices per glass ($7 to $9). My waiter, Ray, was both very attentive as well as very knowlegeable about the food. Certain things are homemade and I tried to select them. These include a sausage escarole soup (good, but a bit too salty), the ranch dressing on the salad, and the lasagna bolognese. These were all good to very good choices. If not fine dining, this is good choice for a casual meal or pizza. From what I saw, I'd say they are also kid-friendly.
