    Mixed bag. Fish and chips was too mushy; they should use haddock instead of pollock. My buddies had good dishes, expecially the lobster roll. The short rib taco was great. Our server was great.

    Awful service and mediocre food. Our waiter forgot about us for a good 10 minutes. When he finally showed up he said sorry for the wait are you ready to order. Food service felt rushed even though the place was half empty (and no wonder it was empty )

    We usually enjoy this restaurant, but this time our waitress decided to ignore us for the entire meal. No one checked on us after the food was served and the person who cleared the table didn't take any notice that one meal was untouched. We couldn't find anyone to help resolve the problem with one order. Too noisy to hear our own conversation. Terrible evening.

    We took my niece there for dinner on a Sunday night. The food was great, and we all enjoyed our dishes from appetizer to dessert. There is a nice variety on the menu- something for everyone- without so much choice that one feels overwhelmed. The prices are moderate, and I think on the low side for the quality of the food. I have paid much more for food far worse! The restaurant was not busy (Sunday night, after all), so it was quiet enough for conversation. The only flaw was that our waitress brought the check before asking us if we wanted dessert, and we had to ask for the dessert menu, giving us the feeling that she was rushing us out the door. I have been there before and will definitely go again- nice evening out!

    Love the met bar in chestnut hill so decided to try the one in legacy place Dedham. Same menu but food was vastly inferior. My favorite item (tuna and salmon tartare) was only average. Salon burger was just okay. Friend had chicken club that was quite greasy. Very disappointing. I'll stink with the chestnut hill branch

  • After several less than stellar
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/4/2013
    After several less than stellar previous visits for Sunday brunch, sadly the service is still sub-par. I arrived with 3 others for an 11:30am reservation and there was only one other table occupied. Coffee took almost 15 minutes, food almost an hour. 'We are brewing a fresh pot' seems to be a consistent excuse for why you have to wait for your first and subsequent coffee refills. Slow food service might even be tolerable if you could at least be served coffee in a timely matter. It is a shame that I cannot recommend Met Bar and Grill because of consistent slow service for Sunday brunch. Maybe they don't care as they never seem to be busy, however, if the service was better, or if there were better management, perhaps they would be busier.

    This happened to be a central meeting place for friends I have not seen in a while. I have been there but they had not and really loved the place. The service was excellent. Our waitress really was attentive, checked in often enough to be doting but not obnoxious. The food was good and selections were plentiful. I recommend it for a one on one dinner, group, or just a quick snack out at the bar.

  • Avoid the salmon burger...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/13/2013
    Went w/ a group of 5 adults, 2 kids. Really impressed with how the waitress responded to the kids - very patient, offered them kids menus to color on and crayons, asked them for their own orders (w/ some backup from their parents). Food was decent. I ordered the salmon burger, which I will not repeat - not nearly as flavorful as I had hoped (despite getting it "Tokyo" style which includes a soy glaze), and it was very difficult to eat - the "burger" did not stay together at all, so every bite resulted in salmon bits being squeezed out of the other end of the burger. Husband also expected a higher quality burger from a place supposedly renowned for their burgers. Truffle fries are delicious (but extra).

    The Met Bar has a varied and impressive menu of food and drinks, but what makes it stand out for me is the burger bar. These burgers are ALWAYS outstanding. Our waitress, Alessandra, was a gem; friendly yet sassy, and knows her wine selections. I am never disappointed here at the Met Bar in Dedham! Always a great dinner and good service!

  • Disappointing food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 6/28/2013
    We were a group of five: three adults, two teens. We each got some sort of burger and fries, including one person who got the vegetarian burger. The cheese on the "Met Fries" was one ingredient too much. A little truffle oil and the pan-fried sage would have been enough. The onion strips were too garlicky. The burgers - meh. One person ordered a salad but what arrived was very different from what the menu described. It was a pile of arugula covered with some sort of (in edible) sauce, and not the cornucopia of greens and fresh tomatoes that were promised. We sent it back. Overall, the ambience and service were fine. We were just disappointed with the institutional quality of the food.

    I ate here on a Friday night after seeing a movie at the Legacy movie complex. We arrived earlier than expected and were easily accommodated. All of the waitstaff are college kids (summer jobs) and they are bright, attentive and personable. My friend had hummus and then tuna. I had onion strings and an arrugala and goat cheese salad with a Sauvignon Blanc that was excellent (waitress seemed very clued in about the wine and she was very honest about food recommendations and descriptions.) She was attentive and talkative but respectfully so, A very enjoyable meal. The food was very good as was the service.

    I had not eaten at Met Bar & Grill because I thought it would be like its sister restaurant, The Metropolitan, in Chestnut Hill. This was a welcome surprise. Much more casual. Loved the menu feature of building your own burger, with all kinds of different burgers, either as a salad or on a roll. Looki g forward to returning.

    How can you ruin a grilled hot dog? Ask for the recipe from the chef at The Met Bar in Dedham to find out. The menu selection and the ambience falls way short of the Chestnut HIll location. Too bad cuz it's a great location to meet up with our kids.

    My husband and I received a gift certificate here. It is a good distance from our home, but we went on a Friday night. Everyone in this restaurant was smiling and pleasant. Traffic had us a bit late for our reservation but there was no question about whether they would still be able to seat us or not. The food was fantastic -- we had burgers. I highly recommend the MET fries. I know we will be back again.

    The wait staff seemed to outnumber diners by 2-1, which was great as far as getting drinks and food, but they seemed to linger in a group just feet from our table and it felt like I was part of two groups of conversation. We all had burgers and salads which were very good, and the prices were fine, but when the tables around you are empty and the staff seems to be loitering, you kind of get the feeling you're in the wrong place.

    We live nearby and always enjoy our meals or just drinks. Sunday brunch menu is a good value, fun too. Outdoor dining is best in the daytime as the sun disappears before dinner at this corner of Legacy Place. We love the burger bar. I get salmon, husband likes beef. Big salads easily serve 3 people. It's a super menu with variety and pleasant staff eager to please.

    While I appreciated the flexibility and courtesy of the front desk when I changed my reservation time, I'm not eager to go there anytime soon. I'm not a big burger fan and found the menu choices lacking. Great for folks who like burgers. Food came out of the kitchen efficiently. However, I felt rushed when the server came to clear plates and I was still eating. The cheese on my "Manhattan" burger was a bit rubbery. Would recommend "Yard House" (better food) at Legacy Place over Met Bar.

It can be noisy when it's busy, but they do have some quiet corners, if you remember to reserve those tables in advance.
