    We appreciated the email that attracted us to Metropolitan Grill. We liked the walleye special meal that made the trip worthwhile. The service was excellent. The restaurant was noisy but we still glad we came for this special occasion.

    Went to Metro Grill for a Birthday celebration. First time visit. The food was delicious (best liver and onions we've had anywhere) Service was great and timely. Would not especially recommend the dessert though. Cake was dry. However, we will go back for the rest of the menu.

  • Server was inattentive
    VandraVIP
    Dined on 12/2/2013
    It's always unfortunate when a lazy server can ruin an otherwise good experience. That is what happened when I stopped in for a weekday lunch. After being seated, I waited more than five minutes before walking over to the hostess stand to ask her to get my server. When she (Naina or Naira) finally came over, I told her I was on my lunch break and didn't have a lot of time. She said OK and took my order, and she never bothered to check back once I received my food. I had to flag down other servers to get refills of iced tea.This was unusual for this restaurant, and I will return because of the good deals and tasty food. However, I will never sit in that server's section again.

    Dined on 11/28/2013
    Menu was fabulous - however, we could not get a reservation until 7pm - 2 weeks out. Service when given was good but slow. Typical for Thanksgiving dinner, I am assuming. What was most disappointing that several items on their menus was no longer available when we dined. Bummer!! But, the server was courteous and that goes a LONG WAY with me. I'll go back - cause this really is not typical for their service or supplies. In their defense, this was my first Thanksgiving eating out and not at home.

    This restaurant is a good place for a special occasion dinner. The food is good and the service is good. The only criticism is that the timing of when the food came out was off. The starter took too long to get to the table than the soup and salad came out, followed very quickly by the main entrée. Dessert was delivered before we were done with the entree. The spacing of the courses needs to be better.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/17/2013
    We were seated and waited about 15 minutes to get menus and water. We had to ask the hostess to please send someone over. When finally served, the food was mediocre at best. I had sole and it was medium warm to cool. The waiter apologized for the wait saying he was catching up - there were very few customers in the restaurant. Would not recommend it to anyone.

    We had a fairly good dining experience the food was generally good, as usual. We had one issue with the salmon that did not have its sauce. It tasted very salty with the sauce to cover it up. Many people do not use a lot of salt these days and so it would be nice if use of less salt was an option or the norm.

    Waiter was fine until we finished entrée - then we got rushed to pay & leave. Dessert was never an option. Liver was medium well instead of medium. This was totally off our normal experiences here - we went there 4-5 times a year for the last 7 years. We will go back.

    For years, Metropolitan Grill has been our choice for "special occasions." But our recent experience there has left us thinking we need to find a new special restaurant. In our party of four, three of us ordered the shrimp three-course special. All of us ordered the garlic-grilled shrimp. Although there were few customers in the restaurant, the service was slow right from the start. Then, our shrimp dinners arrived, with teriyaki sauce on all of them instead of garlic sauce. We called the waitress back to our table, and pointed out the mistake. At first, she didn't believe us, but after a visit from the manager, she returned the dinners to the kitchen. It was, simply, a bad dinner.

    My husband and I just moved here the beginning of the month. Met friends for dinner. Pleasantly surprised about the ambiance, food and service. The appetizers were half priced. I think we might have had all of them. Each was very good. I would have all of them again. The waitress was also very nice and helpful.

    I had not been to the Metropolitan Grill in several years because the last time I was there the service was bad. I decided to give it another try and had dinner with my husband and another couple. Although it was a Saturday evening, the restaurant was quite empty. The service was good and the food was delicious, everyone one in our party was satisfied. Most of the business seemed to be in the bar area which was quite loud and could even be heard in the restaurant. The menu was varied with a nice selection of dinner options, although it was a little bit on the pricy side. Bottom line, I will no wait as long before returning to the Metropolitan Grill.

    We had a group of seven and the menu had enough variety that each had a different entree. The bread was fresh out of the oven and the entrees came to the table quickly. Everyone enjoyed their meals; the steak was cooked properly and the thai chicken was very good. Our server kept an eye on our table to make sure had what we needed and gave us refills on our drinks. A good time was had by all.

    We very much appreciated being placed in the extra room for our large family dinner. The dinner food had mixed reviews. We ordered two of the blue cheese and roast beef sandwiches and expected them to be hot but they were cold - our waitress said we had to ask for them to be hot. When we sent them back to be heated, which was not indicated on the menu, we did not get them back until everyone was almost done with their meal. One person ordered fish and chips and it came out 15 minutes after the other meals were served. No reason was given. My pistachio and wild mushroom plate was OK but I did not see any mushrooms and seemed to be a premade frozen entree. Two ordered the Asian noodles dish and raved about it.
