Metro is a trendy art deco-inspired hotel conveniently located in downtown Milwaukee. The hotel offers a modern dining experience with comfortable seating, interesting artwork and bright pops of color. Metro serves French-inspired and New American cuisine along with an array of innovative cocktails. Whether you're staying at the hotel or just visiting downtown, it's a great place to stop and enjoy a meal with friends and family.
Start off with an appetizer like the mini Wellingtons, spinach artichoke dip, chorizo Cobb salad or veggie hummus with fresh pita bread. Try main courses like the Norwegian Benedict, ribs with a twice-baked potato, Chilean sea bass and chicken vegetable risotto. Finish the meal at Metro with a sweet dessert like the upside-down apple walnut pie, a slice of almond or red velvet cake and the flourless chocolate torte.
My wife's quiche was cold in the center and was sent back. The eggs on my eggs Benedict where not done the same, one was done correct the other wasn't and the whites were still runny.
Food mediocre, an okay place for lunch as it is close to businesses. Restaurant was empty. Wouldn't rush back.
Love the Art Deco atmosphere and creative meals with a twist. Get ready for an imaginative meal! Yum!
Worst service ever. Waiter was not the least bit apologetic and did not even inform us our meal would take an hour. Did not come and refill coffee and had to be tracked down if needing anything. We were pretty much the only ones seated in main restaurant and were not informed about parties being served ahead of us. We were there for a birthday but will not go back. Food was marginal for the cost. Honestly couldn't believe how the waiter could have cared less that we weren't being served and didn't even feel obligated to tell us when we sat down--with a reservation--that we'd be waiting well over an hour.
Service was very friendly and considerate. Thought the table might have flowers or some decoration considering brunch and spring. Nothing really. Food was fine, nothing special and nothing I could not get at Maxfields or elsewhere. Rather plain actually. Thought there might be sweet rolls or something on the table first and passable. And thought entrees would come with a side of fruit. Just really more plain than I expected.
Bloody Mary's very spicy. Not sure I will return for Brunch, but try another meal, as in the past the food has been really good here.
Our server was absolutely amazing! Never had an empty glass and also helped with dessert selection. Couldn't have asked for a better birthday experience! Ps get the strawberry shortcake when you are here!!!!
My wife and I visited for downtown dining week. The starters and entrees were very good. We took the desserts to go. I ordered the lemon lingonberry tartlets and my wife ordered the flourless chocolate torte. We got home and we both had the chocolate torte in the two to go boxes. Granted I didn't check the boxes before we left but I feel like I shouldn't have to check them for accuracy. Taught me to check to go boxes for accuracy now I guess.
Love the brunch and lunch menus and are regular guests at Metro at those times. Dinner menu variety is limited, but the portions are large, and most of what is prepared is flavorful (haven't tried everything). Wish there was a burger are the dinner menu. The service is wonderful.
The food was ok. This was a boring dining experience.
My husband and I came here for downtown dining week, as he's never been. They're great with food allergies. I always have been able to eat safely. Our waiter was great. The service was slow, but we had no pressing plans after dinner. The food was excellent. I'd bring my husband back.
