We were a party of four. Service was very good. The only thing that was disappointing was they added the gratuity in and did not tell us. Of course, we caught it. I have never been to a restaurant or hotel restaurant that added gratuity for a party of four.

Hotel Metro's buffet was a
Hotel Metro's buffet was a great selection for Easter brunch. It suited all of the dining wishes of our party with ages ranging from 20's to 90"s. The food was well presented, fresh,warm, always available and delicious! Our favorites were the dessert selections, omelettes,lamb,short ribs and salads. It was a relaxing, wonderful experience.

Great special occasion spot
We went for a late Mother's Day meal on Monday evening. Bit was not very busy so we got great service. The meal was wonderful and everyone had something different. Not a bad meal was had by anyone. We shared a number of desserts and they were great also.

It was our first experience,
It was our first experience, and we were looking for a nice place for dinner, before seeing a show at the Rep. This was a short walk, and recommended by a friend. We were seated on time, the food was remarkable, and they had a drink special that was attractive. A great dining experience, and we'll definitely go back again.

Very good food
We went for a business dinner. Both had a salad, which were fine, though the highlights were the entrees. We had a pork tenderloin and the walleye. Both of us said that they were among the best that we'd had of these dishes. The sides were also generous and prepared nicely. We split the cheesecake for dessert, which was very good. So, overall, the food was worth the reservation. The service was a little spotty, though everyone was pleasant and described the dishes well.

Pretty good, bad table settings
Restaurant was packed for Downtown Dining week. We were seated at a table near the bar where the chairs were just bar stools with no backs, very uncomfortable. Saw a few nicer empty tables with regular chairs that I felt we should have been seated at since I made a reservation using open table. Food was good, we ordered from the special downtown dining menu, which should have had more variety, i.e, two of the choices had beets and if you are not beet fan, well . . .

No one here but us chickens
We were the only diners - but it was a Monday evening, so that is probably not surprising. I suspect this spot is more popular for business lunches than business dinners (such as ours). We were surprised that several of our entree choices were unavailable, as the server had previously mentioned - before we ordered - that a couple of *other* menu items (entrees) were not available but had not mentioned these. The dishes we had as substitutes were tasty and well prepared.

I LOVE METRO!
My husband and I went to Metro for the first time on our very much awaited date night. This was our first time at Metro but had read many good reviews about the restaurant. The weather was nice so I had asked for a table outside and they luckily had one available. Our waiter was fantastic giving us the best drinks on the menu......which are amazing. We happened to be there on a Friday so my husband took advantage of their perch fish fry. ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Great tasting perch, the best potato pancakes and homemade cinnamon applesauce which was to die for. I had the lobster stuff filet. Delicious! The mashed potatoes were perfect. I have wanted to go back every Friday since just to have the fish fry.

Lively on an early Friday evening
This was not what I had expected after a corporate event at Metro several years ago.
Totally lively bar crowd and enthusiastic diners with many partaking of the Friday fish specials.
Much noisier than my wife & I had hoped, but if that's "Energetic", so be it.
The food was great, but the service somwhat inattentive as it was crowded and lively.

A Special Gem in Milwaukee
For dinner, I had the Lobster Stuffed Tenderloin with Amaretto Butter. The butter was so complimentary to the lobster and the steak. The steak was cooked exactly right, so tender, and also came with almonds sprinkled on the top. The candied carrots were cooked to perfection and the rice pilaf was very moist. I am already craving this entire dinner again.
My husband had the tenderloin medallions and just kept saying MMMMM! He had the 2x baked potato which he said was also great.
For dessert we had the Almond Cake with Sabayon Sauce and fresh raspberries. Light and refreshing!
Great food, ambience, drink specials, They had Happy Hour until 6 and $5 martinis all night.

Great food & a great mood!
I'd been to Metro before but only for after-work drinks and appetizers with co-workers. I recently tried it out for dinner and was NOT disappointed! The food was really yummy and the restaurant felt cozy and chic (without being stuffy). Our server was very helpful and informative as well!
