Understaffed a bit. Surprised staff weren’t wearing masks...many restaurants have chosen to mask staff despite the governor saying it’s not necessary

decent food but didnt like the waitress trying to hurry us into ordering everything quickly. I like to sit snd have a few drinks and appetizers and then the main course. I was told the place closes at 9pm...which is early for a saturday evening

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.

What a great find near Princeton University. Excellent food, service was quick and friendly, perhaps the only miss were the house special cocktails, but that's a quibble. Very happy--and they have a spacious outdoor patio.

I was shocked at how bad of an experience we had. Our server took a while to come up to us with a drink menu, and the second she handed it to us, she asked what we wanted for a drink. Or appetizer came out and was consumed before we could even order a drink, and my wine was completely stale and disgusting. On top of that, our server lost our credit card when we paid the bill. She returned the receipt for us to sign without the card in it. When we tried to scan the inside floor on our way out for it, the manager was rude and yelled that we weren't allowed to stand at the bar (which we were not doing). The food is also completely over priced. I will likely never go back.
