Diner Reviews
  • "I have eaten here several times and have been pleased with the food and the service every time. My last visit was with friends who had not been there before and they were very pleased with their first visit. As it worked out we all had the bone in filet and it was exceptional. I will be back the next time I am in B'ham."

  • "We went for a rare girls night out and we were completely disappointed. The server was friendly and spoke highly of several dishes on the menu. So we ordered as he suggested. The steak was good but very overpriced and overrated. The crab cakes tasted like "deviled crab" as they had more filling than crab. Definitely not the best in Birmingham. The lobster Mac was nothing to rave about and the Sweet Potato Hash came to the table burned. We will not be returning."

  • "We had the metro prime steak special again tonight which was served exactly as we ordered it. It was tender and delicious. Best of all we enjoyed the truffle mashed potatoes! The servers and management always make us feel welcome and the food is delicious. Drinks are good, too."

  • "We really enjoyed our meal, the service was excellent and the food was very up scale and really good. I asked for a to go box and they boxed up my food nicely I was disappointed they did not include your delicious steak sauce for my left over steak. glad we had the experience. thank you."

  • "My wife and I returned to MetroPrime to use a recent LivingSocial coupon. Service and atmosphere were both outstanding, and the sirloin steaks were both prepared a perfect medium rare and very tasty."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "My steak was burnt. I asked for a new steak and it was way undercooked. They took it back and cooked it to perfection! I was wonderful!!!!!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Food is nothing special. The price for a 6oz. top sirloin, one traditional side, one glass of red wine was $50. You can get the same meal, including the wine, for half that price...and the food quality is no difference. When you finish, you are left wondering why you paid the premium price."

  • "I was expecting a fine dining. It was casual at best. For a Saturday evening dinner, I was expecting the best servers. However, they would have been better suited for a Tuesday lunch. Drinks weren't ordered til 10 min after we sat down. Bread wasn't offered til the meal came. Our drinks were never refilled. We both ordered the sirloin, MR, and it was perfect in the middle, but the outside edges were overcooked and hard to cut. We also had the sweet potato bacon hash and asparagus bernease. Both sides were good and plenty to share. Salads were basics, mostly just spring mix. It cost over $100 and for 2 of us. It was our first time there, and we will not go back. I would not recommend it"

  • "The table next to us was extremely loud.They acted like they were at a bar. It was so bad we could't enjoy our dinner. Our wonderful waiter noticed we were miserable and said he would take care of it. He had someone talk to the loud,rude patrons. It did no good! They were just as loud!! We love the food,but won't be back!,"

  • "We had a great time celebrating our first wedding anniversary here. The steak was one of the best I've had in a while. I had the bone-in filet and my husband had the waygu. Both steaks were excellent. Service was great as well."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The staff was friendly, but not the most timely. The food was disappointing. We had a pre fixe meal, which we upgraded one side and one salad. The caesar dressing was tasteless and needed more salt and acid. The sirloin was cooked and seasoned well, but the house sauce was very overpowering. The truffle mash was so hot that it was inedible for the majority of our meal and was very under seasoned. The creamed spinach was decent, and the runoff cream sauce made for a better accompaniment to our steaks than the house sauce. We enjoyed a nice bottle of Freemark Abbey Napa Cab with our meal. It was quickly offered to let decant and served in proper glassware, but the temperature of the wine was off (very warm). It took 15 minutes for our valet."

  • "My husband and I went on a Friday night with another couple. Not crowded or busy at all. Table was ready at 6:30 after having a cocktail at the bar. Server was very short and rude...we were using a Living Social coupon we had. We ordered two appetizers, a few more drinks and the fixed menu dinner (from the coupon). We were incredibly rushed through dinner and were planning on having desert, but he brought our checks and asked for the valet ticket! We were also going to go over to World of Beer, but car was out front waiting! Even without paying for the steak, salad and side due to coupon my bill was still $70. Calamari was just ok, baked oysters decent and steak was good. Nothing phenomenal."

  • "3 of us met for dinner here- no drinks ( water), no apps. I ordered the petite filet ($38) and what I received was a small medallion- we joked at the table about where the rest of our food was... a side of broccoli was clearly from a frozen bag and not fresh... Bill for 3 people with no apps, no drinks, 2 desserts, and coffee was $150+. Ridiculous!!! Food was ok, but the prices were outrageous for the portions we received."

  • "EXCELLENT EXCELLENT food and service! Perfectly seasoned and cooked steak! wonderful soup and salad - superb sides! Highly recommend the bacon lollipops, sweet potato/bacon hash, and the lobster mac and cheese! I really can't say enough wonderful things about this place! We will definitely be back!!"

  • "We experienced fantastic service at MetroPrime. Everyone was incredibly polite (except one of the waitresses who was cleaning up at the end of the night, but that's not a big deal since we didn't deal directly with her) especially our waiter (who was wonderful!!) and the host. The bacon lollipops were unbelievably delicious, but we weren't impressed with the rest of our meal. The steak wasn't particularly flavorful (didn't seem to have any seasoning) and the sides and bread weren't anything to write home about. The ginger-carrot soup was great though! We probably won't go back because it was a bit too fancy for us, but we'll certainly recommend it to others who want someplace nice to go for special occasions or romantic dates."

  • "The first time we went I had the filet, sauteed spinach, and potatoes. The food was exceptionally bland this go around. Im not sure if the cook just didnt season it well or what."

  • "Bacon lollipops appetizer should come with a cholesterol medication. Delish. Lobster Mac has good amount of lobster. Filet mignon was cook just as ordered. Have porterhouse for two that's $99. Wow. "

  • "Fine dining establishments can be uptight and intimidating. That's not the case with MetroPrime. The staff was professional and courteous without being arrogant. The food and drink offerings are excellent."

  • "My husband and I went to MetroPrime for our 1 year anniversary dinner. It far exceeded our expectations. The calamari was perfectly seasoned and battered, not too heavy. The potato leek soup was amazing! My husband got the filet and I got the beef wellington. Both were cooked to a perfect medium rare. Seasoned to perfection so we didn't even need any salt. We finished it off with the chocolate soufflé, which was out of this world good! The drinks were great too. We both agree that it was the best meal we've eaten in Birmingham, if not anywhere! It's pricy, but with the quality service and awesome food, it's so worth it!"

  • "I loved the beauty of the understated decor. Low Lighting. Service was A+ and food scrumptious. We were on a married date and shared our entrees back and forth as well as desert. Food was delicious, high quality, and had a modern touch without being extreme. We look forward to trying it again for a special occasion for 2, 4, 6, or 8. "

  • "The food was very special and especially the appetizers. They were not just the current fad but unique and tasty. Each of the main dishes were very nicely presented and tasty. The waiter was very attentive, had memorized our orders and confirmed our order from memory, most impressive. We were highly pleased."

  • "Had reservation & then asked to sit at the bar to wait 5-10 mins which was no problem until we were then rushed to leave the bar to get to table before ordering drinks at the bar because they were super busy. Server was good and food tasted great, but if the table is reserved and the server is busy, I would have offered to have a drink in my hand if I'm told to wait at the bar and then get rushed to a table where my drink will arrive much later. Our service was good but looking around it seemed others were much disappointed"

  • "Not only were our steaks excellent but everything we had really was excellent. The service was very good. Our waiter told us to sit back and relax and service was at a relaxing pace. I suppose some may consider that service was slow but we did not take it that way. This was our first time at the restaurant and we had a groupon certificate which made for a very reasonable dinner at this fine restaurant. Would definitely recommend highly and would go back."

  • "After viewing the menu for this restaurant, I had really high hopes. They have bacon lollipops for crying out loud. Delicious right? Not so much. The bacon lollipops are thick cuts of, what can only be assumed bacon, covered in smoke taste mixed with maple syrup and brown sugar. If you are wanting to taste bacon, go else where. It tasted more like a roasted marshmallow than bacon. The steaks were good and the sides were ok... The best part of my meal was my drink. So I would recommend going for happy hour.. Not for dinner. If you want to spend $200 on a fantastic meal, go to Ruth's Chris and save yourself the disappointment. If you want to spend half of that on a fantastic meal, go to GianMarcos. "

  • "This was our first visit to MetroPrime and it was lovely. We were celebrating being first time parents and the food was just amazing. The steaks were seasoned to perfection and very different in their taste and presentation. Our waiter, David was so helpful and not at our table every few minutes but took grate care in our needs. It was a great experience and we will be back for sure. Be ready to spend some $$$ but well worth the cost. And only get 1 bread pudding for 2, it's in a huge bowl. Glad we went that route. Next time we might just have to have the waffles for dessert. Yum! "
