Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent and popular relatively small neighborhood restaurant as bar scene takes up about half the floor space with noise level from bar reaching into diners accordingly. Live music during our meal on a Friday evening. Completely full. Food was excellent as was the service, just a bit noisy due to popularity with live music. Tables a bit tightly-placed in close proximity but no matter and cant be helped. Worthwhile and highly recommended, a bit pricy."

  • "The food is always good. Although they could switch up the menu or add more specials. Service is excellent. Nice outdoor area. A bit on the pricey side."

  • "The hosts/owners , Bill & his wife, make you feel like they have know you for years. It's a energetic place with very good food. I had a Filet Mignon, reasonable priced and a very good cut, which was cooked to perfection. My companion had the salmon w/ quinoa and aruglar which was delicious. Our waitress, was attentive and we never had to search for her when we wanted anything, extra bread, water, etc. The band, which starts around 830, only adds to what was already a fun night. We love this place and highly recommend it."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
