Nice meal here. Salads were excellent, we tried three of the four listed and we all thought the were really great. Entrees were very good, meatballs, salmon and strip steak all satisfying. It’s loud and a little austere inside, but service was terrific and overall experience very good. We’d go back!!

Delicious as always. Thei traditional eggplant lasagna was back on the menu, along with other family recipe favorites. I highly recommend metro north. One of the best Italian restaurants in the area.

Was very disappointed. Called two days in advance to insure that veal would be available. I really enjoy the veal piccata. Upon arrival was told that it was not on the menue

The menu was not what was reported on the open table listing. It was much more limited and the restaurant claimed that open table had refused to modify the menu on your site after they had requested that you do so. Also the restaurant was lax in safety standards for COVID-19.

Great food, cocktails, and beer on tap selection. Great atmosphere. Great service. Metro North is always changing up parts of their menu which I think is great. It's a way to show that they are innovative and always looking improve. It's my favorite Italian food in Princeton. A great hidden gem.

I go here for the ambience, not the food.

The food itself has room to improve and I think the restaurant would benefit from focusing on appealing to the Princeton vegetarian market. Adding 5 solid, healthy, hot vegetarian entrees, like gnocchi, ratatouille… whatever they decide, would appeal to more people. Vegetarian options were relatively limited (to pasta or eggplant) while non-vegetarian options were diverse.

Short delay in seating to give us a superior booth, which was perfect. Great choices on the menu, good selection of wines, waitress gave us quick and ultra-friendly service. As always, food was excellent plus kitchen response was commendably fast.

Great experience.

We had a great experience at Metro North. They worked with me to plan an impromptu celebration in the bar area and our waitress Danielle was exceptionally helpful. The drinks are very tasty and pack a punch, solid draft beer selection, and the food is hearty and delicious. Thanks Metro North!

IMO, the menu was pretty conventional. I ordered the pork chop with hot and sweet peppers, which was the most exotic entree on the menu. I loved it. I thought that the clams casino and the tortufo dessert were both excellent. My date thought that her scampi was just OK. I thought her bruschetta appetizer was excellent.

The atmosphere was causal, nice, and a bit noisy. The service was very good. I will go there again.

The meal was incredible. I had chicken artichoke which was very light meal but satisfying. My wife had shrimp scampi linguine which was also very good. Our server was attentive and prompt. The host was very personable and funny. We were sat promptly and the cost very reasonable. We highly recommend Metro North. It never disappoints!

Short wait for the table, which was tucked into a quiet corner with an adjacent window to the outside porch. Very comfortable. As always, food was excellent. Don't know whose mama inspired their Mama's Meatballs, but her recipe was perfection. Actually scraped the plate to get all of the tomato gravy.

My meal was a Gorgonzola Cajun Filet. Perfectly cooked and seasoned, and tender - wow. My taste buds were gloriously happy. My wife's Chicken Piccata also top-notch.

A memorable evening.

What a wonderful dinner! The food was amazing. We were not rushed and allowed to enjoy a great time enjoyin a drink then appetizers, dinner, and dessert.

Went on half price wine bottle Monday. What a fabulous deal.

Chili Calamari some of the best we've had.

Dinners were amazing. And chocolate Lava cake dessert a perfect end to the evening.

Highly recommend.
