Food was mostly good. Service was
irregular with four of five diners receiving their food well before the fifth diner, whose duck--when it arrived--was partially dry. We also had to remind our waiter that we had ordered a side dish of spinach. Why the side dish didn't come more timely is a mystery to us. We might have felt interested enough to try Metropolitan Bistro again, but the restaurant was so very noisy indoors that it was hard to hear our own conversations and therefore we won't be back."

Metropolitan Bistro is a true
neighborhood gem...and we don't even live in the neighborhood! The food is wonderful and the service is friendly and attentive. The owner greeted us at the door every time we've been here. We love to sit outside when the weather cooperates. Inside is great too. The wood burning oven not only makes delicious food, but adds to the atmosphere. This restaurant has become our go-to, feel good restaurant. We love it here."

Welcomed by Billy upon entering,
the food and setting continued the positive theme. A window seat showcased the wild lightening & thunder outside, but our focus remained on the food. Delicious salad starter, amazing caramelized onion pizza, and cod broiled to perfection. Moist, gluten-free carrot cake finished our meal with just the hint of sweetness we needed. Bravo!"

We received a gift certificate for
Metropolitan Bistro from our son, so this was our first time dining here. (we had been here when it was Tupelo Honey) The staff was very welcoming, including the owner, who came over before we left to see how we enjoyed our meal. I ordred the chicken francaise & it was fantastic! The chicken was very tender & the sauce was so lemony & tasty...I told the owner he should "bottle" that sauce! My husband's meal (grilled steak) was also very good. We will definitely come back...maybe next time stay for the live music!"

They had a live band this
particular night. They were good it was just way too loud. My ears were ringing, plus I wanted to have conversation with the people I was with, which was impossible. The food wasn't great. The bread for the table was stale and the pizza I ordered was not great. I ordered the one with Rosemary and onions. It had on it ricotta cheese which it didn't state on the menu. I'm not a fan. My friend also had the white pizza and she didn't like hers either. My sister had a burger and she said that was good. Oh and the fries were good."

This is a go-to restaurant for so
many; loved for its delicious, varied, and reliable menu, cozy ambiance and excellent staff, and GREAT weekly lineup of top notch music. Favorites are atlantic salmon, crab cakes, and the duck though I enjoy the steak, the cod, so many delicious things on the menu. The Metro even makes a terrific burger. Drinks are generous, with very good wine by the glass. Last night we sat outside - a beautiful evening. After a great dinner we moved inside to hear the awesome band and (even dance a little!). The post-dinner energy inside was so friendly and "up." People come here knowing they will have not just a delicious meal, but a delicious evening. And sometimes, like last night, it's downright special."

Nice place for a week day dinner.
Service is good and no rushing."

Always our "go to" place when we
can't decide where else to go. All staff is friendly, including the owners mangers. Although, I have to say, though we have been there dozens of times, there seems to be no hint that they have ever seen us before. Food is solid, not the best, but always very good. And the place is packed up until 10pm or later. Nice soothing decor, and a good mix of patrons of all ages."

Not the best dinner I have had at
mb. Waitress wasn't trained to solve a problem except to say "I'm sorry". Dinners came out wrong, not as ordered and not to the correct person who ordered them. Small portions for the price . "

We visited for Mother's Day and
were pleasantly surprised by the special menu which included rack of lamb which was beautifully prepared and an excellent appetizer of grilled shrimp with outstanding grilled veggie mix. Gorgeous evening enhanced by lovely al fresco dining on the first real spring evening."

My husband and I brought some
friends there from out of town. We all had a very delicious pleasant meal. The food was good, not exceptional. The service was fine. Overall a very enjoyable night!"

Really awesome food, service, live
music. Just a fabulous time there. Highly recommend this gem. "
Dined on 4/26/2014
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."

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."

We all loved our dishes - salmon
and cod entrees. Good reasonably pricerd wine list. Will surely be back."
Dined on 2/28/2014
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."

My wife and I wentcout for a long
overdue dinner . Great service we both had nice dishes I had a fish dish recommended by waiter which was great."

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."

Check out on first Friday of the
month. Awesome local jazz trio plays. Food is great, service is attentive, ambiance is beautiful, and the music is the perfect accompaniment."

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 10/19/2013
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."

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."
Dined on 10/18/2013
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"

food, great selections. nice staff. no wait!"

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."

It was our second time and we
enjoyed it more than the first time. Service was better too! The filet mignon sliders were awesome!"
Dined on 9/14/2013
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."

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!!!"
