Fantastic dinner!We went there for our anniversary and had a lovely dinner - from the cheddar souffle to the homemade Fettucine and Creme brûlée it was all outstanding!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Date SpotWhat an amazing dinner. I knew this was a place for foodies, and obviously wine geeks, and the menu did not disappoint. As a veteran of working in fine dining myself, I can attest to the quality of both the dinner menu and the extensive wine list. My date started with a fino sherry, and I had the Argyle Brut Rose. We had the asparagus appetizer, perfect combination of flavors, even though I don't eat eggs so my date had the singular pleasure of enjoying that perfectly poached ova with his share. I chose a bottle of Crozes Hermitage, knowing it would complement both our dinners, lamb shank for him and duck confit for me. Our meal was outstanding. I haven't had duck confit that well prepared since I worked at Veritable Quandary. Well done.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMTSA-free flightsWhile our meal was quite good, what we enjoyed most at this restaurant were the several flights of wine we ordered. Metrovino offers "smack downs", flights of wines pitting different regions against one another. Fun, and also, for us, instructional.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and wine pair well hereMetrovino prides itself in selecting interesting, unusual and well-priced wines to go with inventive and well-prepared dishes. Service was excellent, the sommelier was friendly and informative and the atmosphere was stylish without being overly trendy. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and will definitely return.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter and BetterFrom the Amuse Bouche to dessert this dinner was fabulous. Wonderful drinks from the vodka and grapefruit invented on the spot for my wife and the Smalls Oregon Gin Gibson for me to the glass of Argyle rose bubbly. Very personal service from friendly and efficient wait staff. This restaurant keeps getting better and better. Very highly recommended4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely pefect for ourAbsolutely pefect for our 23rd anniversary. The wait staff was extremely accommodating and let us mix and match dishes and share portions. This restaurant is a gem!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was an extreme pleasureIt was an extreme pleasure to have found this place. The food was exceptional, the service went above and beyond. We had to wait a bit for our appetizer but they fully acknowledged this and gave us a glass of wine that paired well, on the house. Not many, if hardly, any restaurants do this. The ambience was perfect and I will be recommending this place to our friends and will be back for sure.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMost restaurants lack adequateMost restaurants lack adequate facilities for storing open bottles of wine. As a result wines offered "by the glass" are typically cheap and of disappointingly low quality. Aside from its great food, the most attractive feature of Metrovino is its astonishingly large selection of wines by the "taste" or by the glass --- many of them truly exceptional!
It is a pleasure to have their 5-course menu, and to be able to choose a different fine wine to accompany each course.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite of ours.The cheddar souffle was delicious. I can't remember what all it came with.
The endive salad was a little to sophisticated -- or bland -- for me. The radiccio salad my wife got was to die for.
I had a perfectly cooked hanger steak with mushrooms, onion rings, potatoes with pancetta. Very nice. My wife had the lamb shank, which I drooled over. We should have switched, only she doesn't like the steak as rare as I do.
The owner, Todd, is often around, and likes to chat about the restaurant business, if you're interested.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBalance of flavorsOutstanding meal. The chef has a great sense of balancing flavors and presentation. Each course made me wish I had the recipes.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough they open at 5:30Although they open at 5:30 for dinner, service at 6 was slow despite few patrons. As it filled up service improved. The wine recommendation was great - better than my choice from the "by the glass" menu. Only reservation about returning with another couple is that the menu doesn't have a lot of breadth, so if one of your party isn't into what is on offer (as one of ours wasn't), that could put a damper on things. Fortunately, the beet salad was a great starter and turned them around.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent! Our groupAlways excellent! Our group shared our food family style and everyone had portions of great tastes!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMDelicious!! Love the decorDelicious!! Love the decor - such a pretty restaurant.
