great that the outdoor dining area is generously covered yet the garden-like ambience is restful with little road noise.
A little pricey, but always a good meal and experience.
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.
Excellent service and food, highly recommend. great for outdoor or indoor dining. You can't go wrong with whatever you order, from starters, main dishes or desserts. Excellent choice of wines, beers and cocktails. From the moment you arrive it is a great place.
Last night we had another great meal here. I had Chicken Artichoke which is always so good. My wife had shrimp scampi also a great meal. We love this place absolutely the best.
Absolutely perfect evening for outside dining! Two people had the salmon which they said was perfect. I am GF and requested the crab and corn over the parmesan risotto which was delicious. Definitely a repeat 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!
We sat outside on a quiet Monday evening. It was ideal.
Food was great. I have some dietary issues and my food came out perfect. The waitress was very accommodating and it was a great experience.
Great back to school dinner with my daughter
Nothing was quite as nice as I remembered it being pre-pandemic. Nothing was particularly bad... but nothing was exceptional either.
drinks were amazing!
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.
It was a pleasant experience. The staff was attentive and friendly. The food was good and so were the drinks.
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!
Our server Mary was awesome!!! Food is always consistently great! Great spot for any occasion!!!
Food is fantastic, drinks are delicious. Atmosphere is calm. A+
The new menu is very different than what is on open table, and much more expensive.
Excellent. Enjoyed the experience. Will definitely come back
1st timer at metroN ;had heard good things & as turned out, justifiably so.
Went on a thurs nite,good sized parking lot. Interior warm colors very cozy decor.
Seated outside w umbrella table nicely decorated/landscaped patio w heaters for chilly nites. Our waitress Joanne, pleasant & attentive. Good selection of wines..3 of us had crab stuffed shrimp w risotto, the best I've had in ages..don't change a thing! Hubby had a dish of pasta w seafood,sausage ,peas I don't recall the name but he enjoyed it as well..prices were reasonable.
Had dessert martinis at the bar , Espresso & chocolate ..very tasty! Will definitely return !
I have eaten at Metro North before and enjoyed it, so brought out of town friends. Tgey loved it!
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.
Good food, great service, plenty of parking, outdoor seating in a nice setting
Good was good. Service a bit slow. Overall value is worth the quality. Good selection of appetizers. No complaints really
Never disappoints! Food is excellent. With staffing shortages & CoVid , this restaurant never misses a beat in delivering a great dining experience.
Excellent- our favorite restaurant in the Princeton area.
Amazing as always!
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.
Reunion of women who hadn’t seen one another in decades
I love MetroNorth and will continue to return for the delicious food, excellent service and welcoming atmosphere - MetroNorth is a favorite and I will continue to enjoy this wonderful restaurant as long as I and it are in Princeton, NJ- Bravo!
Food is excellent, relaxed atmosphere, service is very on the mark. Just sit back and relax.
As always, a very pleasant dining experience. The food was well presented and delicious.
The service was excellent. Our waitress was always there when we needed her, and yet she was never hovering. Tables are well spaced so you do not hear the conversation of the guests at the next table. Always a good dining experience.
go to place for dinner, consistently good food, good drinks, and plenty of parking!
We had an excellent dinner with great service from our server.
Excellent menu, courteous service, three of us in a semi-circular booth allowed easy conversation. Wine list not large but very adequate in coverage; wine selected was quite good. Looking forward to the next visit.
Dinner was very good and the help was Excellent: Sitting outside was delightful.
It was pur first time dining at Metro North and we had a fabulous experience. Food, space, service - all on point. We definitely plan to go to Princeton again. The food was absolutely delish!
