Consistantly DeliciousWanted to venture from my standard butter fish with crab meat and artichoke hearts but alas I was glad I didn't. Their signature dish was as tasty as ever. Others had Francais, Milanais and Red sauce. All pleased. Desserts prepared in house! Well worth the trip to the Princeton area.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily FavoriteOur family always enjoys eating at Metro North. The service and food are consistently great.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty but priceyGood food, and our server was excellent--she didn't hurry us.
But, it came at a price.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorites!Metro North is one of our favorite places! We going here probably once a month with our two year old and always have a great meal.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, nice settingHave been here twice for lunch lately. Nice lunch menu with good variety. I had the summer berry salad both times, first with hazelnut tilapia and next it was offered with Cajun salmon. Both were delicious but I had a slight preference for the tilapia. The restaurant space is nice but not fancy. Different rooms and seating styles add to the ambiance. The intentionally worn chairs did not go with the decor in my opinion. The waitress was cool at first but then ended up being nice and helpful. Will try it for dinner and would recommend it. Plenty of parking available.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMe and my husband went toMe and my husband went to Metro during Reunions and we had a pleasant time. We were able to sit outside which was what we had requested on the reservation, so I was happy to hear the receptionist immediately directing us to a table outside on our arrival. The service was friendly, simple and quick: we did not have to wait long for a waiter to find our table. Metro serves good beer (always a plus with me) and the food is, again, simple but tasty. My ravioli with crab was homemade and accompanied with a nice sauce. I wouldn't think Metro is a 'foodie-'restaurant, but it is definitely a nice place to go to when you want to go out for a satisfying bite, in the company of good friends. We will surely come back!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Meeting PlaceI have been to Metro North many times. I appreciate their varied menu, most times of exceptional quality. The service is also friendly and efficient in most instances. I have qualified my coments because at one busy lunch time around the holidays we were shoved off to an undesirable table (and my lunch companion was disabled). On this last visit, I didn't think my lunch was as good as other choices, but again it may have been the choice I made. Everyone else in the party thoroughly enjoyed their selection.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed outdoor dining!I always enjoy the ambiance at your restaurant. I brought my Brazilian coworkers for outdoor dining and they couldn't stop raving about the food and decor. Of course, I am a regular here!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good. Our waiterFood was very good. Our waiter was excellent. This restaurant never disappoints and we eat here often when attending cultural or sporting events in Princeton.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceIf you haven't tried Metro North, what are you waiting for? After hearing people rave about it on many occasions, I finally decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did. The food was served in a timely manner, giving a relaxed feeling...not a hurried one. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and made sure that our water glasses were always full. The food was great and plentiful! I had the Veal Francaise and it was the best I've ever had - so tender I didn't need a knife to cut it. I will definitely be back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful location. Food wasBeautiful location. Food was very good and a huge value. Large portions...I took half home for the next day. Lots of kids even later on a Friday night so noisy.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated promptly atWe were seated promptly at our arrival in an area that I had requested due to my loud guests. The service was very good but the food was fantastic. My guests were from California and they raved about the food. I found Metro when it first opened and was impressed and have continued to be.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner Before the McCarterWhen we come to Princeton and the McCarter Theatre, Metro North is a delightful place for dinner before a show.

And we were pleased that despite those groups our service was excellent. Food delicious as always.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been coming to MetroWe have been coming to Metro North for a few years now. It is always very friendly with good food. There are two menus, one the specials and the other a standard menu. My husband and I always split a salad - their manchego is wonderful and quite large. This time I tried a chicken dish off the special menu. It was good, not the best I have had there, but certainly an excellent choice. My husband had a hamburger which was equally good. The attractive thing about Metro North is that you can have a burger or a full course meal and their prices are reasonable for both. This restaurant is located within easy driving distance of downtown Princeton, NJ. Without the Princeton prices but with a wonderfully casual ambiance that can suit anyone4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful dinnerWe had a wonderful dinner at Metro North.

Choice...something for everyone4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, just like my lastThe food, just like my last time here, was excellent. Started with wings, quite tasty (although messy - they really should give you a little bowl with water or extra napkins without having to ask). My wife had the Salmon Florentine - a large, tasty portion of salmon (I stole a bit). I went with the NY Sirloin, which didn't disappoint, and comes with a decent portion of vegetables.
We did feel a little rushed - our area of tables were seated, and served each course at the same time. But only a little, overall we had a great dinner. It's also good value for a restaurant of this type in Princeton.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI ate at the bar and had wonderfulI ate at the bar and had wonderful service and a great meal.
