Noise Level "Energetic" lolWe had a very nice dinner and I would recommend it to other people. The noise level option just
above moderate though was "energetic", lol, which is code for, kind of loud. :) I felt our table had
to speak with raised voices for the majority of the night. It certainly didn't ruin our experience, but
I thought it was important to point out. Nice night out.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place in quaint littleGreat place in quaint little NJ town. Always a good experience. Reservations are on time. Great hostesses4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBurgers were dry with no tasteBurgers were dry with no taste & the Asian chicken salad was good, except the chicken also had no taste & was tough. The waiter did the right thing. Place was empty & instead of seating us in a nice booth, the hostess put us in a little table in the corner. It's nice if the owner sitting with another table for 1/2 hr. would of said How's your meal?. It's a nice place for drinks & appetizers.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyed the entireThoroughly enjoyed the entire experience . Service was great, food was outstanding! We will definitely return!!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere, interesting menuWent on Easter Sunday for our anniversary and it wasn't very crowded since it was a holiday, so I can't really speak to the noise level or bar scene. We were greeted by a nice young woman who chatted with us a bit. Our waiter was polite and knowledgable about the menu. App was the mozzarella and tomato which were good, but not amazing, as the description would lead one to believe. For entrees, "spanish style" garlic shrimp with a rice with chorizo in it. Pretty good. Also, Scallop pinwheels stuffed with crab over spinach with a nice rice. It was delicious, but the spinach was a bit too oily, and although delicious, a little too heavy. No dessert but menu was tempting. Nice atmosphere. Skylights, open kitchen, nice lighting. Recommend.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCousin's ReunionHaven't been to The Metropolitan Cafe in quite a while and had some cousins coming in from out of town so we decided to meet them at The Metropolitan Cafe. The waiter was very good and didn't rush us to order and brought out our food in a timely manner. The food was also excellent and everyone in our party enjoyed our dishes. I would definitely be coming back to The Metropolitan Cafe.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food. KnowledgeableAmazing food. Knowledgeable waiter.

Definitely a better dinner than lunch place. Our server was a woman with Russian accent. She was great! They have a good wine list both by glass as well as bottle.2/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWanted to go back the next night!Went Valentines night. While waiting for our husbands my friend and i sat at the bar and had martinis.They were ice cold- and perfect. Immediately upon our husbands' arrival we were escorted to our table. On a very busy night our server was attentive but not overly so. We had the shrimp and calamari appetizer and it was out of this world. The fish was cooked to perfection and the sauce had just the right amount of spiciness. The two gentlemen had steaks which were also cooked perfectly, I had a tilapia dish. The fish was cooked perfectly, not too dry and the seasonings were delicious. My friend had a pasta dish which she also enjoyed, the shrimp plentiful and not overcooked. Very enjoyable experience.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter was very helpful.The waiter was very helpful. My friend and I ordered and sushi roll, and he informed us that this was not a very good choice and made another recommendation which was excellent. We ordered salads as our entree and they were both very fresh. Did not order dessert, but both had cappuccino, which came out very hot.
Wine list and specialty drinks was extensive. All in all we both enjoyed the evening.11/24/2012 12:00:00 AM
