I have now been there on a busy Saturday night and a quiet Sunday evening. The food and service are excellent, but it gets a little pricey if you like Johnny Walker Red label because they ALWAYS seem to be out and offer you Black Label or single malt Scotch. Out of Red Label once, I can understand it - out twice, wouldn't you wonder? I put down moderate for noise. Actually it was quiet on Sunday and on the loud (but happy)side on Saturday.
The mussels for a starter are wonderful. The seafood entree menu could be improved - as I recall Tilapia was on the menu. That is a garbage fish generally farm-raised in places like VietNam. Cod is very boring. Salmon may or may not be good depending on whether it is farm-raised.I would recommendSea Bas

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The food was very good, if you get a chance try the skirt steak special, and the atmosphere was vibrant and alive. the waiters and waitresses were very attentive and informative. there was a nice selection of wines and the mojito was very good. Bill, the owner, was very friendly and hospitable. The live music just added to what was an already great feeling and atmosphere. I will definitely be coming back to this hidden gem.

A quaint gem
Lovely owner/matre'd. Very attentive and caring. The food is excellent and the service very professional. I sometimes forget it is there but am always happy when I remember. You can often get a table there on a weekend night without much notice. Not sure why that is because it has never disappointed us.

A pleasant surprise
We had no idea how this place would be, but found it that we really loved it. The decor is very bright and inviting. There is somewhat of a neighborhood bar science, but it did not disturb our dinner. The salad were were excellent and I am very particular about salads. I had the salmon and it was perfect minimum all seasoning with a char grill taste. My husband loved the chicken Francais and his soup. The lemon tarte was quite good and probably their best dessert.

Great food, great music
We went to hear Meridian Jazz, playing here first Friday of the month. We'll be back for the food and atmosphere. Friendly, excellent service. Welcoming owner. Nice décor. It's an hour and 15 minute drive from our home and worth it!!!

Great neighborhood restaurant. Live Jazz band, accommodating and attentive waitstaff and imaginative food/plating. Only complaint was small portions compared to other area restaurants

The food is very good and is usually not overly crowded because of the location. The wine selection is not extensive but very nice choices for dinner. My wife and I love to sit outside during the summer evenings.

2nd time better than 1st
It was our second time and we enjoyed it more than the first time. Service was better too! The filet mignon sliders were awesome!

We loved our meal here.
We started with a large bistro salad which we shared. More than big enough for 2, and very tasty. The salmon was excellendt, the roast chicken outstanding. We ordered glasses of wine to pair with the food, and there was plenty of choice of good quality wine. Prices were more than fair, the waitress was pleasant and knowledgable about the food and the wine. Can't wait to return. The noise level on a Saturday night was rough, but that's the way all restaurants seem to be these days. We just put up with it if the food and service warrent.

as always great food, great night
what a great place, wonderful food, great selections. nice staff. no wait!

The service was excellent and the food terrific. WHen the waitress was too busy to helps, the hostess (ownwe?) jumped irhgt in there. One rarely sees that these days.
The food was great.
However the place was too noisy. It's no fun going out with friend to a wonderful dinner and having to shout all night

My husband & I had dinner here on Friday night...a great find! We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food very much and the service was pretty good, when our waitress was busy her runner helped out by brining our desserts and the manager checked on us a couple of times which was nice. I think next time though, yes we will surely go back, we will either bring some friends or book our reservation a little later. Friday night they have live music and we missed out since our reservation was 7:30 and we were finished just as the music began and I imagine if you wanted to visit with friends it might not be the best to be competing with the music but was a great place.

As the manager. I would recommend this restaurant.

Metro Bistro has become one
Metro Bistro has become one of our go-to restaurants. The staff is always welcoming and eager to please. Summertime provides pleasant outdoor seating; winter is warm and friendly. There are seasonal changes in the menu that are appealing. Although the menu is not extremely extensive, there are good choices and the food is always, fresh, tasty and prepared well. We always enjoy Metropolitan Bistro and would definitely recommend it.
