This restaurant is dated and so is the limited menu. The waitress was very inattentive and the food was ordered incorrectly. The steak was over done and the kids did not even eat. It was a
disappointed meal. We will not be returning

We have been dining at Metro North for a number of years, and have always enjoyed our dining experience, but last night was we were very disappointed. We reserved a table earlier in the day and requested an outdoor table. When we arrived we were told by the host that he could not seat us outside because those tables are not reserved. This was the first time that has ever happened, and began our night on a down note. We were seated inside and waited approx. 15 minutes before a server came to our table. Overall the serving staff appeared to be very disorganized and lost. One positive from last night was that the food was very good as always, but it will be a long time before we return.

The food was great as always but the service was very poor. The host John (not the normal host) was the main issue. He was rude and unprofessional. Other guests reported the same experience. We have dinner weekly at Metro North and will, unfortunately, need to consider other dining options.

Solid food. Creative menu. Old standards still there, such as seasaoned chicken and manchego salad. A tad pricey, but again quite solid.

Great food and service as usual . However, patrons should know that at the present time the restaurant is serving a limited menu and is asking customers to vacate their table after 90 minutes. We did request a salad that was on the menu pre-pandemic and they were able to prepare it. The salad was as delicious as we remembered it. Glad to have you back Metro North!

First time here. Went for a birthday .
Had meatball appetizer .they were very good moist & very flavorful
Taste like your Italian grand mom made them .
Arugula Salad next light & refreshing .
I had the chicken piccata one of the best I’ve ever had
My date had the Gorgonzola filet mignon
with Demi glaze steak was like butter had a wood grilled taste
Very good
Brownie cheesecake for dessert perfect balance of cheesecake & chocolate
Would definitely recommend
Will be back for date night again
Unlike most places they had plenty of staff
Courses were well timed
Waitress was attentive without being intrusive

I have been to Metro North many times. They never disappoint. We sat outside this time, looks like they recently added a new awning with lights built in. It looks very nice. Food is always delicious. Service is good, everyone is very nice.

I usually always love the service and food here. Yesterday, another table that came in after us, got their food before we did. I asked for vegetables instead of potatoes and I got potatoes and no vegetables. I asked for no broccoli and I got broccoli. I asked for a little bit of sauce and the rest on the side and I got no sauce on it and none on the side.

The next thing that happened was a moth flew into my hair indoors while I was eating. I was not happy with that.
