Diner Reviews
  • "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. "

  • "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! "

  • "Our waiter was one of the best I ever had and took much of the teasing from our party with a smile and even deliver some witty rebuttal. Soup was good and our sides were good but the best is my Australian Kobe steak. 16oz of goodness cooked to perfection, juicy and flavorful."

  • "We first dined here about a month ago. Although MetroPrime needed improvements, we also saw great potential. We returned on a Saturday evening around 7pm. From the valet parking attendant to the manager who met us at the door, everyone was extremely pleasant and welcoming. Our waiter, Ian, was quietly helpful and efficient. He watched over our service throughout the evening, without being intrusive. Both my wife and I ordered the large filet, which comes with a salad and a (large) side dish. The filets were cooked perfectly and were delicious. The bernaise sauce that accompanied the steaks was wonderful, but the steaks themselves needed no improvement. We will return soon! "

We wasn't sure about our choice of soup or salad to start off, so the chef offered a complimentary sample of the salad......AMAZING!! "

  • "I thought you would do some sort of special dessert for my husband's birthday. The food was great except for the bacon app. Our service was great, apart from the server trying to up-sell the seafood tower. Unnecessary. I felt he was trying to increase the check for a better tip. I tipped over 20%."

  • "Despite making an online reservation, hostess failed to serve our party of three. Said they were booked, yet there were empty tables everywhere. I hope the owners read this and get rid of their manager and hostess. Cost you quite large diner tab that night. Hope you lost money on the evening."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The drinks and meals were way over priced. This is Birmingham, Alabama not New York City. The amount of food that was served was embarrassingly small. Even if the servings were doubled in size the price would have still been over priced. We will not return again."

  • "This was our second time to dine here. Food was good we all had steak, had Porterhouse for 2 steak had good flavor could have been a bit more tender. Others had filet cook as ordered. Appetizers were the calamari and cheese board. They have an appetizer the is a bacon lollipop...have not tried this yet but have been told it is fabulous....nice place.."

  • "The star of our dinner was the shrimp and grits. It was flavorful, heartyand extremely well executed. My husband's steak was non- memorable but his fries were drlicious and fresh. The salad had a great variety of vegetables. Can't say enough about the delicious bread. A cappuchino was the perfect end to our meal. The ambience was professional and the views of 5 Points were delightful. The noise level was perfect for a great meal. No loud parties or crying children."
