The Metropolitan Grill
Proper AttireThe food is always stellar at The Met.
Unfortunately patrons have seemed to disregard any form of proper dress for such an establishment. Suit and tie should be the norm, and it no longer is. There were customers in t-shirts cargo shorts and sneakers. Women in jeans and a shirt. The restaurant deserves diners that will dress the part; that is part of the allure of going to The Metropolitan. Otherwise, the lofty prices and tuxedo wait-service seem a bit on the pretentious side. I hope Seattle-ites and other guests will find their way to a button down and some slacks (and cocktail dresses for the ladies) before they next go to The Met.
The food, the service, and drinks are all superb at The Met.

The waiter is very knowledgeable in everything they serve and how it's prepared, they are very friendly and personable. I highly suggest this restaurant to any one.:((6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Great ServiceThe Metropolitan Grill was great as usual. We have gone there for many years and never have had bad food or poor service. This is our favorite restaurant.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Knocking it Out of the Park!The Met has such fantastic, consistent service and the best steak in town. A great place for lunch, a delicious cocktail in the bar or a special dinner!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our dinner here.We enjoyed our dinner here.

Best service around6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steakhouse in SeattleThere's a lot of competition in the Emerald City for high-end steak, but the Met is the most consistent of the main contenders. I've never had a less than great meal at the Met; whereas I cannot say that of John Howie, El Gaucho or Daniel's Broiler. Plus I find the service to be pleasantly old-school.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Met is a FavAs always, the service was impeccable, the food GREAT! One of our favorite restaurants.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best steak in Seattle.This was my second visit to the Metropolitan Grill. It was as amazing as the first time. From the wait staff to the food to the valets, everything is top notch. I recommend the two-filet sampler-- if you enjoy beef, you must get this. I love the American Wayagu, and the Prime is an excellent contrast in taste and texture. The house Cabernet pairs well with it. I also love the onion soup. The waiter we had was perfect...he knew when to come by, knew the menu intimately and most importantly, we were never left wondering where he was. On the whole, an amazing experience.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steaks!The steaks are the best in the Pacific Northwest! The service is first class all the way!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMClassy, old-style charmWow...every plate, from the bread, to appetizers to main dish to dessert is made to absolute perfection. And lots of it! Definitely worth every penny. Felt like we were in a famous movie-star hangout that cooks and serves like the old days. Fabulous!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak Prepared PerfectlyThe calamari was okay, a bit chewy but seasoning was very good. The brussel sprouts are awesome. We (couple) split a 16 oz. NY with garlic mashed potatoes and it was plenty of food. The steak was cooked to a perfect medium-rare and tasted fabulous, tender and flavorful! Our server was pretty good but the gentleman who brought our dinner was great!
Damage: $140 after tip (drinks are expensive here)5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic and funI would highly recommend the Met to anyone looking to get out and have a cocktail. Or for a special romantic occasion. Service and food was spectacular!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness lunch meetingHad a great business lunch meeting. The Thursday lunch special, beef stroganoff, was exceptional! The service was attentive and fast.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNever Disappoints!The Met is one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle. You will never have a bad meal here. It is not an inexpensive place, but you get what you pay for. The steaks are amazing. The service is wonderful, and you will never leave disappointed. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that has not experienced it yet.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place but questionable ..Food was awesome, waiter was great!
Super disappointed that our reservations were pushed out almost 40 minutes. Your hostess was "matter of fact" about it, no apologies and not very helpful or accommodating. Told to go to the bar and someone will come get you. Later in the evening, as we were finishing up, your maitre'd, kept giving me looks like it was time to go and we were still eating, because we were seated 40 minutes late! Love everything about your restaurant and were there 2 nights that week but the front house was not providing the level of service expected.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you MetFood was great and service was outstanding. Roger kept us well served and entertained all evening.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMexpensive great food/serviceConfusion on drink menu on Manhattan choices. Shared rib-eye carved at table, cooked to perfection, extremely tender; confusion on 2 sauces (cheese and one for the steak - couldn't tell which was cheese for potato/ which was for steak.) Gigantic hot baked potato, spinach was weird; i may be wrong, but thought it was to be 'creamed'; was tasty but baked dry with cheddar topping (?) - at any rate, not creamed. Fresh baked tomato -large/excellent flavor. Shared Caesar, fresh/ good. Wonderful fresh oysters! Tons of food, took home for 2 more meals. My B'DAY; comp (THANK YOU) Creme Brule, absolutly exquisite/plenty to share! Even the coffee was wonderful. BEST/Most Fun server anywhere! SO, I could go on and on, but you wouldn't want me to (;5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Met is always a winner!The Met is one of those places where you go for a special occassion, when you want to know you are going to have a special meal. The service seemed a bit off tonight (seated more than 15min past reservation time, wait staff not as attentive as normal), but the food was exceptional, as always.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the food at the Met.Love the food at the Met. Everything from steaks to crab cakes-we love.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, average serviceThe food was great but our waiter was just ok. Lovely cocktails in the bar before dinner and the barman was awesome.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food & Wonderful ServiceThe steaks are consistently tasty and made to order. Their desserts are wonderful as well. I have some dietary restrictions, which the staff was very accommodative to.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat vibe, good foodWent in with a large group last month. Service was great, food was superb and upbeat vibe. This place surprised me as it didn't looks pretty subtle from the exterior but once we stepped in, it was bustling with high energy. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection, very tasty and flavorful. Even better that that other steak restaurant in Bravern Bellevue :) Even the side mushrooms taster delicious. As a matter of fact, everything was very tasty and delicious. Would come back again and definitely will recommend to friends.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Service!!Great food! Great service! Will definitely be coming back!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food!The steaks of coarse were amazing! But the four cheese macaroni is the best I've ever had, wasn't expecting that!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite Steakhouse!I love the Met. They continue to deliver excellent food and service every time! The waitstaff is the best that I have encountered. They are extremely friendly and knowledgeable of their menu. I love the fact that you can come and have a fancy dinner without having to dress up. The environment is fun and relaxed. Awesome steak and crabcakes!!!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial destination - amazing steakWe booked to celebrate our wedding anniversary and couldn't have had a better meal. Aaron, the sommelier, really made the evening special - great advice on wine and a special pairing to go with our dessert. Wangu fillet mignon was the BEST beef I have ever eaten. Definitely do not miss this place!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will still go again.This was our second visit. A reservation seems like a must here. The lobster soup was to die for again, and the chateaubriand was out of this world. Don't forget your leftovers! They're just as good the 2nd time by warming up in a toaster oven.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch at the MetWhen I was making my reservation to eat lunch at The Metropolitan Grill, I was thinking that the lunch will be expensive but it should be worth it. I was right. Having lunch here is an experience that I must repeat in the near future. The staff made me feel as though they were there especially to serve me for that day. They were completely knowledgeable, and extremely patient. I went there expecting to order Steak, but after reading over the fresh sheet I could not pass on the Copper River Salmon. What a delight. I remember going to The Metropolitan Grill over 10 years ago, and it didn’t seem as special as it was on my recent visit. It seems like they have up'd their game, and sit amongst the elite restaurants in Seattle.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, As UsualThe Met is our go-to special occasion steakhouse. Our dinner this time was wonderful, as it almost always is.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Great at the MetEvery time we dine at the Met the food is wonderful and the service is exceptional!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAs expectedThe Met provides excellent service, fantastic food and many great cocktail and wine options. It was a wonderful dinner, as expected based on their reputation and previous experiences.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistantly GreatSecond time I have eaten here and the food was fantastic!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMVacation KickoffMy wife & I enjoyed our time @ Metropolitan. My Porterhouse was done perfectly and the mashed potatoes were delicious. My wife enjoyed her Mac & Cheese and a salad, along with a few bites of steak.
I really enjoyed the booth's for two, they are elevated a step up from the floor for easy in/out seating and a unique dining position I've only experienced @ the Met.
We made reservations online the day before. Our experience with all levels of the staff was welcoming and professional start to finish. I'm looking forward to the next "special occasion" to enjoy this wonderful restaurant.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Birthday CelebrationA year ago we had a birthday celebration with my father (94) and brother (68). Dad is gone now, so we are keeping a tradition alive with celebrating my brother's birthday at this fine establishment. The food is very good, and the service is exceptional. We will return. We also had our son's pre-wedding party at this same establishment and the guys are still talking about it.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Great Met GrillCame for dinner on Sunday nite and had a fabulous feast! My husband touted the French Onion Soup as better than he has even had in France. I loved my lobster bisque. He had Buffalo Tenderloin and I had filet mignon, both were expertly prepared and very flavorful. We topped it off with tableside Cherries Jubilee, my favorite!!!! A delightful evening, we will be back!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday niteThe food and service were excellent. It was pricey, but that was expected. But, the portions were huge so we had three meals at home and the food was still tasty.
It was great to come back later in the evening to have a fantastic dessert in the bar. A great place to take someone special.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Dinner!We had a wonderful Dinner at Metropolitan Grill. Our server was truly charming and attentive. We had a great time and my boyfriend can't thank me enough for his amazing birthday dinner.
I highly recommend for a great dining experience.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI love that the Met welcomesI love that the Met welcomes everyone with the same enthusiasm. Great steaks and dining experience. Had a wonderful birthday! Be back soon. Thanks, again.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDate NightWe have been to The Met several times now - once again it was a great experience. The service as usual was fantastic. We arrived 5 minutes prior to our reservation, so I figured it was Saturday night and we may have to wait a few minutes - not the case. We were seated immediately. Our server (I do not remember his name) was fantastic. Answered all of our questions and provided a couple of great suggestions (almond crusted scallops, mac and cheese side dish).5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, spectacular foodAs always, spectacular food and service. Beautiful decor.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the food!The food is always exceptional as it was on the 15th. Service is always good too.
Kudos to the Met to keep the quality at the highest.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Night OutConsistent staff, quality meat, excellent managers, special events like the Sounders or SeaHawks circulating. A Seattle mainstay....all great except for the people who will pay for expensive steaks yet could care less about appearances with worn Tshirts and baggy dated jeans.....shame!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as always!For us this is a place to get a special dinner. We always enjoy the food, the service is friendly and consistent but never over-bearing. We truly enjoyed our meal here. Valet parking is getting a little pricey but for us it is worth it.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMmetropolitan grill mayThis restaurant is a must for a nice night out and I try to go here every time I come to Seattle.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner came slowIt was mothers day and the Met Grill was very busy. We waited over an hour and a half for our dinner. The Service was good and the waiter came to the table several times to let us know they were working on our meal. The food was outstanding and well worth the wait!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Except for SeatingThe food was fabulous. Had Australian Lobster, Rib eye Steaks and Escargot. All cooked to perfection. Waiter was knowledgeable with the food, but was unaware of added items to the menu including additional wines. Apparently they were added on his day off. The only real "discomfort" was the actual booth itself. They were sunken in dramatically causing leg pain and left us with wanting to hurry our dinner just so we could stand up. The seating needs to be either updated or at a minimum re-upholstered. At least add cushioning to the seats. The seat we were in was 19/1 in case you care.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!This is by far my FAVORITE restaurant in Seattle!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWorld class steak restaurantOutstanding food and service. We had the Chateaubriand for two, cooked perfectly, fantastic flavor, and extreemly generous portions. Everything a world class steak restaurant should be.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
