Diner Reviews
  • "Enjoyed a very nice late-morning brunch on a gloomy spring Saturday. The restaurant was quiet and we were seated immediately in a nice 4 topper. The ambiance is dark modern retro (If that makes sense), with seating options at various heights and on different sitting arrangements (chairs, couches, etc). Our service was impeccable and the for was delivered in just the right time. The four of us had different dishes ranging from fresh toast to omelets specially prepared. Everything was appealing to the eye and very tasty. The coffee was excellent. This restaurant is very reasonably priced for the food with many dishes in the $10 - $15 range. An excellent value for sure."

  • "$50 package through Living Social included dinner for two with an appetizer (we chose asparagus and lobster crepes) two entrees (we chose a rib-eye and risotto, and a dessert (we chose flourless chocolate cake). The meal also came with a bottle of wine as well. All the food was excellent and the service was friendly an prompt. Would highly recommend Metro"

  • "My husband and I went to Metro on a Living Social deal. Got there early for their happy hour. Good choices of half price appetizers and drinks. We were surprised though that the restaurant seating was actually just to the rear of the bar/lounge. Food was very tasty. The bottle of wine was their house wine, it was fine. We had the individual salads, the ribeye with spinach, mashed potatoes and the chocolate torte with raspberries for dessert. The only other time we were at Metro was for a private party in the rooftop lounge. When weather warms, we will be back. Enjoyed our dinner."

  • "The food was good, but I was not happy that I almost did not receive my open table points because the person who greeted me did not put in."

  • "If ever there was a restaurant that fit the bill for a relaxed atmosphere, yet classy and warm all at the same time, this would be it. The only concern would be it was a little noisy...but, with any eatery with people...it's a sign people are enjoying themselves....so one needs to accept that...if not stay home. A vibrant atmosphere smoothly done with the ease and comfort of a private club. Enough about the atmosphere. The food is terrific. We expected a modest salad before dinner....no....a full and respectable salad with a luscious rich dressing. The same with the entre...we had the rib-eye steak. It took the entire plate up with a generous portion of vegies, a not so shy portion of mash potatoes and an unexpected egg on top of the steak."

  • "We visited on a Thursday, so were able to enjoy the Thursday deals (half price bottles of wine and $5 cheese/cracker/fruit platters). For once, we actually paid less for a bottle of wine at a restaurant than we could buy it for in the store! The food overall was very good; however, my filet mignon that I ordered medium came out as well done. That takes a lot away from a steak of any kind, but especially a filet. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful, and the ambiance was excellent. The restaurant was a modern "metro" vibe, and we sat side by side on a love seat with a long table pulled right up to us. We would definitely go back, but next time I may send my steak back for actual medium, or avoid the steak all together."

  • "I have been to METRO many times but this last time was truly outstanding. We went there for dinner for our anniversary and it really was a special evening. The food was absolutely delicious and the service excellent. They gave us a table in the corner with a sofa. Truly the perfect spot for a nice romantic dinner."

  • "I went here with a small group for a birthday brunch. Our server was very nice and personable. The food was very good and everybody seemed to enjoy their meals. The vegetarians found options just as easily as the meat eaters, and we were very pleased with how quiet and private our meal felt. We plan on dining here much more frequently."

  • "Nice choice for a not-so-private Valentines Dinner with my spouse. Food, Service and Ambience were great, and we had a terrific price-fix meal for the two of us. Very satisfied, and we will return."

  • "My wife and I both enjoyed the tenderloin filets stuffed with lobster. They were prepared perfectly and were accompanied with the very tasty mushroom risotto and perfectly prepared broccoli. We enjoyed a bottle of Similar cab, and believe it or not, had room for the ever-delicious chocolate mousse. My wife didn't finish her meal, and even couldn't finish it all at lunch the next day. The wine selection is very affordable. The ambience is very nice: quasi upscale club/bar and romantic dining."

  • "We used Amazon Local deal they had as a promotion and paid $50 for it. We expected better food. Our appetizer was a mini beef Wellingtons and the beef and mushrooms inside the pastry was not seasoned at all and it tasted flat. We had the chicken risotto and the ribeye. The risotto tasted ok, but the chicken in the dish was dry. My ribeye was dry aged and the cut was grissly. A high end place should choose their meat with care and not serve steaks with grissly bits running in the middle of the cut. The strawberry short cake was good even out of season. We were a bit surprised at the lack of quality as the menu items would have cost otherwise $133. It was definitely not worth that price. I would only go again if I has another deal."

  • "I'd been to Metro before but only for after-work drinks and appetizers with co-workers. I recently tried it out for dinner and was NOT disappointed! The food was really yummy and the restaurant felt cozy and chic (without being stuffy). Our server was very helpful and informative as well!"

  • "I used a voucher for my meal here, but I don't know that I would go back. The food was fine, but I felt the price was too high not just for the quality of the food but because the atmosphere was more like a bar than fine dinning. Service was Ok."

  • "For dinner, I had the Lobster Stuffed Tenderloin with Amaretto Butter. The butter was so complimentary to the lobster and the steak. The steak was cooked exactly right, so tender, and also came with almonds sprinkled on the top. The candied carrots were cooked to perfection and the rice pilaf was very moist. I am already craving this entire dinner again. My husband had the tenderloin medallions and just kept saying MMMMM! He had the 2x baked potato which he said was also great. For dessert we had the Almond Cake with Sabayon Sauce and fresh raspberries. Light and refreshing! Great food, ambience, drink specials, They had Happy Hour until 6 and $5 martinis all night."
