Fun restaurant and bar. The food
is prepare in a coal fired oven. The fish and vegetables were amazing. The wait staff is very friendly. I would definitely go back again."

First let me say this restaurant
is pretty and in a charming location in Sea Cliff. The food though, needs work. My Caesar salad with 'grilled chicken' was insulting at $17. It was small, the dressing way too mustardy, and there were 5 small pieces of overcooked chicken in it. The onion soup was delicious though. My boyfriend's burger was mediocre at best. Drink prices were on the high side. Service was just okay. It's a miss."

Restaurant was packed. We had to
wait a while for a table even though we had a confirmed reservation. The Manager/Owner was apologetic and kindly offered us drinks while we waited. Food was very good and service was decent, but the room was fairly noisy and too smokey from the open oven. It seems as though the ventilation system could be much improved. Our clothes and hair smelled of smoke and some of us coughed from it. I may wait to return when the weather is nicer and the doors are opened to the outside."

Note to open table - several times
when I have booked this restaurant through open table, it will not confirm until I repeatedly request confirming on the web site. This doesn't seem to happen with other restaurants. Not sure why this glitch occurs. Maybe you could check it out. But, we love this restaurant!!!!"

The evening we had dinner there
was a fundraising going on so the place was booming. There was a terrific raggea band playing. In spite of the business that night, the food was very good and so was the service. All in all we had a really nice experience at Metropolitan Bistro and would recommend it. We sure will go back."

The French onion soup is to die
for as well as their freshly made potato chips. The burger came out cooked exactly as we had asked for it, and the service was excellent!!"

Know the place form previous
owners/restaurants and were happily surprised that the new place was very good. Looks similar inside and the food , ambiance and live music made it a very enjoyable evening."

The food is very good and is
usually not overly crowded because of the location. The wine selection is not extensive but very nice choices for dinner. My wife and I love to sit outside during the summer evenings."

were okay for the food but the liquor prices were high."

A welcoming restaurant with simple
yet elegant food. A gem!"
Dined on 5/12/2013
Metro Bistro has become one of our
go-to restaurants. The staff is always welcoming and eager to please. Summertime provides pleasant outdoor seating; winter is warm and friendly. There are seasonal changes in the menu that are appealing. Although the menu is not extremely extensive, there are good choices and the food is always, fresh, tasty and prepared well. We always enjoy Metropolitan Bistro and would definitely recommend it."

It was a pleasant atmosphere and
the food was very good. The owner Manager was very friendly. The waitress was competent but not as friendly As the manager. I would recommend this restaurant."
Dined on 10/20/2013
My husband & I had dinner here on
Friday night...a great find! We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food very much and the service was pretty good, when our waitress was busy her runner helped out by brining our desserts and the manager checked on us a couple of times which was nice. I think next time though, yes we will surely go back, we will either bring some friends or book our reservation a little later. Friday night they have live music and we missed out since our reservation was 7:30 and we were finished just as the music began and I imagine if you wanted to visit with friends it might not be the best to be competing with the music but was a great place."

Selection varied-something for
everyone. Honor reservation, pleasant staff , food nicely prepared and presented, I would rate it about 3 1/2 stars. Would recommend for a nice meal out."
Dined on 10/19/2013
The service was excellent and the
food terrific. WHen the waitress was too busy to helps, the hostess (ownwe?) jumped irhgt in there. One rarely sees that these days. The food was great. However the place was too noisy. It's no fun going out with friend to a wonderful dinner and having to shout all night"
Dined on 10/6/2013
We started with a large bistro
salad which we shared. More than big enough for 2, and very tasty. The salmon was excellendt, the roast chicken outstanding. We ordered glasses of wine to pair with the food, and there was plenty of choice of good quality wine. Prices were more than fair, the waitress was pleasant and knowledgable about the food and the wine. Can't wait to return. The noise level on a Saturday night was rough, but that's the way all restaurants seem to be these days. We just put up with it if the food and service warrent."

Great neighborhood restaurant.
Live Jazz band, accommodating and attentive waitstaff and imaginative food/plating. Only complaint was small portions compared to other area restaurants"

We went to hear Meridian Jazz,
playing here first Friday of the month. We'll be back for the food and atmosphere. Friendly, excellent service. Welcoming owner. Nice décor. It's an hour and 15 minute drive from our home and worth it!!!"

Everything was good. The menu is
not big. I have been there twice and I never leave hungry but the Entre is not BIG. However who needs Hugh portions."
Dined on 5/26/2013
We had no idea how this place
would be, but found it that we really loved it. The decor is very bright and inviting. There is somewhat of a neighborhood bar science, but it did not disturb our dinner. The salad were were excellent and I am very particular about salads. I had the salmon and it was perfect minimum all seasoning with a char grill taste. My husband loved the chicken Francais and his soup. The lemon tarte was quite good and probably their best dessert."
Dined on 5/4/2013
Lovely owner/matre'd. Very
attentive and caring. The food is excellent and the service very professional. I sometimes forget it is there but am always happy when I remember. You can often get a table there on a weekend night without much notice. Not sure why that is because it has never disappointed us."
Dined on 4/27/2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at
this restaurant. The food was very good, if you get a chance try the skirt steak special, and the atmosphere was vibrant and alive. the waiters and waitresses were very attentive and informative. there was a nice selection of wines and the mojito was very good. Bill, the owner, was very friendly and hospitable. The live music just added to what was an already great feeling and atmosphere. I will definitely be coming back to this hidden gem."

Food and service were ok. Not bad
if it is close to home. A day later Opentable took my points away....not sure why."

Love coming here with
friends--nice wine list, good drinks menu, and lovely dinner. The service was attentive and the owner? seemed to be checking on everyone, making sure things flow smoothly."

Small portions of overpriced food.
Even the salad was skimpy. Poor presentation. Waitress was more interested in talking to the bartender than taking care of us. We will never go back"

Love Metro Bistro. It's really a
neighborhood find. Food and service were excellent and Wednesday nights they have music singers and guitarists, great place to hangout."

Always a pleasurable dining
experience. The friendly greeting and thoughtful service shines. The Long family has a reputation well deserved for excellence. Comfortable decor, lively fun bar crowd.Well prepared food,interesting tastes and sides. A gem!"

I have now been there on a busy
Saturday night and a quiet Sunday evening. The food and service are excellent, but it gets a little pricey if you like Johnny Walker Red label because they ALWAYS seem to be out and offer you Black Label or single malt Scotch. Out of Red Label once, I can understand it - out twice, wouldn't you wonder? I put down moderate for noise. Actually it was quiet on Sunday and on the loud (but happy)side on Saturday. The mussels for a starter are wonderful. The seafood entree menu could be improved - as I recall Tilapia was on the menu. That is a garbage fish generally farm-raised in places like VietNam. Cod is very boring. Salmon may or may not be good depending on whether it is farm-raised.I would recommendSea Bas"
