Just took a chance and booked
Just took a chance and booked through Open Table to find a restaurant. Very happy with the MET Back Bay. Service was excellent, food was really tasty, and the restaurant was charming - kind of old but with cool modern touches. We tried the pasta bolognese, chopped salad, and fish and chips - all excellent.

Great experience! Made a reservatio
Great experience! Made a reservation for 9:30. The waiter was extremely accommodating and friendly given that the kitchen closed at 10. Loved the fun cocktails and will definitely be back in the future!

Where is Dessert?
We have eaten several times at the Met and no doubt will continue to do so. The only complaint we have is the advertising (at entrance register) for a delicious chef dessert with proceeds going to breast cancer. We asked our waitress about it, and looked forward to enjoying it. However, our visit was Friday night., and we were informed after dinner that they were not serving it until Monday. Why not say so on the advertisment or least inform your wait staff? It was very disappointing.

Upstairs Dining Room
Met up with an old friend so we wanted a table upstairs so we could catch up. We ordered the ham and cheese app, but the slicing machine was broken so we got the shrimp cocktail. It was yummy but the shrimp was not as large and fresh as an Abe and Louis or Atlantic Fish. My salad was a 3.4/5 stars. Wine was great and the room is lovely. I would go back for sure. The waitress was awesome!!!!

MET Back Bay hosted a small
MET Back Bay hosted a small group of us for the evening. While we did not order anything terribly complicated (tartare duo - delicious, burgers - tasty, salad with salmon - large serving, well prepared), we were treated to very good food, delectable drinks, and excellent service. A surprise had been arranged ahead of time and working with the staff at MET Back Bay was straightforward and pleasant. Thank you for helping to make the evening an enjoyable one, MET Back Bay!

We had brunch at MET and really
We had brunch at MET and really enjoyed our meal and the view of Newbury St. The special BLT Madame sandwich wasn't that memorable, but the other dishes were good. The fruit/yogurt/granola plate was very well-presented and more fresh and varied than most fruit plates.

First time at Met restaurant
I went with a group of 4 and we all really liked Met. We all got the Mac-n-cheese and loved it. Also, the wine I got was good and the calamari app (though small for 4 to share) was tasty. The Mac-n-cheese was creamy with bread crumbs. There seemed to be some parmesian baked in with the bread crumbs which was a nice change. I'd definitely recommend this dish!

Nice place for brunch
Good service, good decor, and unbeatable location in the heart of Back Bay. The lightly-dressed arugula salad with hazelnuts, pecorino and mushrooms was excellent and generously portioned. The omelettes were not quite up to that standard, but this is still a nice place for brunch with an outdoor seating option.

Tried and true !
Always can count on great food and service, bonus when you can eat outside !

We were a big group and because of the heavy rain and traffic most of the group was running late...
They sat down us and treat us extremely well!!!

Great outdoor dining
Midway on newbury st. It is a hot spot to people watch and enjoy lunch.

Quiet midday lunch - A+
Great spot for a quiet midday lunch. Server was extremely friendly; wide variety of lunch options.

Fantastic Night Out at the Met!
We had a wonderful evening at the Met. The food was out of this world. Try the ribeye, the swordfish, Paris Burger, the teriyaki broccoli. This is comfort food par excellence. Left feeling so satisfied.
The people who work there are great. We started downstairs at the bar for a cocktail and Lily and Tito fixed us some great drinks: try the Lemongrass Capirinha. Dean the manager was very personable and gave us a tour of the restaurant, as we were admiring some of the artwork, and we didn't know which dining room we wanted to sit in! We ended up eating upstairs. Jamal waited on us and recommended a Langhe Nebbiolo to go with our food. Bravo to the staff and kitchen! A job well done! We will be back.

Good but usually better
This is a restaurant with a good attitude. I was disappointed with my "chopped" Cobb salad -- the concept just doesn't work -- but everything else was excellent. There's no doubt in my mind that if others make a similar comment, the management at The Met will take action.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The upstairs dining rooms are elegant and thoughtfully laid out for privacy. Large windows overlook Newbury street brunch was delicious. Eggs Benedict and Bloody Mary a fine way to spend a weekend morning. Service was attentive. Our neighborhood fave.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not too shabby!!
Came in for lunch, the bartender was very attentive, the salads were great (hada little issue with the chicken but they were on top of it) everyone was friendly and inviting. We'll be back soon! Thank you and keep up the good work.

We sat outside on a beautiful evening. Great for people watching or enjoying the company and conversation. The only reason I gave it a 4 star instead of 5 is the valet parking is $16.00 and when I gave the valet $20.00, he kept the change. I had to ask for it and he was unhappy about it. I would have given him a tip when I left anyway.

Great dining experience particularly because of MET's hideaway feeling on Dartmouth st and Newbury!
They're best for the burgers! And have an intricate list of cocktails and beverages. Love how the dining experience can be casual to more business casual with their various setups of a more formal restaurant and bar dining experience to a more laid back bar area and restaurant scene. Really shows that they put their thought into the design of their restaurant concept .

We had an extremely attentive waiter who helped make our night so special. Great food, great service, great view of Newbury street. Would definitely return.

A delightful surprise.
We had been to the bar before which is below ground and does not have the best ambiance. What a difference upstairs! Lovely view overlooking Newbury Street. Terrific menu, great service, easy to have conversation at our table but still a lively place. The hosted was friendly and smiling too, an increasingly rare event at restaurants.

Great place for dinner!
My parents were in town for the weekend, so my wife and I took them to MET for dinner. We all had a great time. The food was exceptional and they had my dad's favorite wine on their wine list. We will definitely be going back.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best on the block
Anoher fabulous lunch at metbar! We like to sit upstairs and people watch over newbury street in the very comfortable and well appointed dining room. We had eggplant mozzarell sandwiches which were delicious and plentiful. Gluten free is always available and theyserve great cappuccino! Athough place was packed we werent rushed. Great drink and wine list.

Terrific for Brunch!
We had a fabulous Sunday brunch! Excellent service, great food, a nice view of Newberry St.! We even ended up chatting with our neighbors, who were visiting from New Jersey. We'll be back!

Great food & cocktails
I've eaten here before for brunch, but this was my first time having dinner here. The Met Bar salad was fresh and delicious.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Brunch so hard
Came for brunch... I highly recommend the Eggs Benedict... Delicious! I was here for lunch the other day and the Met Club sandwich with sweet potato fries is also to die for. Be sure to make you reservation before the weekend though for Saturday brunch otherwise you will wait!!!

Great food in the Back Bay
I've been here for brunch many times as well as dinner. The food has always been delicious, particularly the brunch items. The breakfast fries are delicious as well as the pork-stuffed hash. For dinner I ordered the chicken entree and some friends got steak - both were very tasty and satisfying. The vibe is good, upscale and yet relaxed. Service is good, too. Would highly recommend a visit!

slight hitch with the cheese
met bar is our go to. we visit the natick one frequently and the boston one as well. the burgers and salads are outstanding as are the drinks. i consistently order the arugula salad, but this last time, the cheese was so salty, it was practically inedible. might be this particular batch, but it seemed the shavings were heavier and saltier. we both had leftovers, but did not eat them.
still we'll keep coming back- it's a keeper.

Brunch surprise at the MET
Brunch tables fill up quickly in Back Bay. With guests we wanted to visit with, the goal was relatively quiet environment, good food and a free table. Although omelets and pancakes were offered, there were a number of surprise offerings. The hash with pulled pork, fried egg and spinach was hearty and AMAZINGLY delicious - good enough to bring half home for a later snack. I'd highly recommend MET for weekend brunch and will also consider it for the early morning breakfast it offers during the week. Breakfast here is clearly not just an restaurant afterthought!

Friendly staff, great service and the food is delicious! Never has disappointed us.
