Love Metro North. The construction is a little confusing, but the food is always good, service is great and the ambience is so relaxing and civilized. A restaurant for adults, Thank God!

I have now been a few times and the food is consistently great. Everyone I have brought there has been thrilled with their dinners. The menu has a wide enough variety that everyone, even picky eaters, can find something. The portions are quite generous. The whole place is spotless- even the bathrooms. Save some room for dessert- they are *amazing*.

Our food and service was very good. The interior could use a freshening up; it is very dark, even at lunch.

We have been eating at Metro North and its predecessor TJ's (in a different location) for something like 20 years. The food and service have been consistently excellent over all this time. I am a particular fan of their Chicken Scarpariello and the wedge salad.

We enjoy dining here. The food is outstanding, they always have wonderful drink specials. It is not easy to do but you have to save room for dessert the chocolate lava cake is one of the best you will ever have. It is worth the wait for it be made. There is always a good vibe in the place the moment you walk through the big wooden doors.

We dine there routinely and are never disappointed. The food is always delicious, service is gracious, and it is conducive to conversation because it is quiet. We love Metro North.

What a pleasant surprise. Ate in the bar area on an unseasonably warm Sunday in February, where Princeton was at full buzz. Thought the place was charming, the bartender who served us was professional and friendly (sorry I cannot remember the name). Had the burratini and oven roasted tomatoes to start. Excellent, and it was nice to have delicious heirloom tomatoes in the middle of winter. The homemade raviolis were colossal and cooked perfectly, with a wonderful sauce. Can't wait to return to try other dishes. Cheers!!!

Food was excellent. Service was a tad slow on drink refills. It was a bit loud but we could hear each other ok. We visit annually when attending a hockey game at Princeton. Will continue in future.

We had a lovely Valentine's Day dinner. Our server was very friendly and helpful. The lobster tail fra diavolo was a special and delicious. It was large enough to share. Excellent manchego salad. Also enjoyed my Cupid's Arrow cocktail. All in all, a terrific, reliable Italian restaurant with excellent management and staff.

Very crowded Saturday night, so good to have a reservation. The food has always been consistently good, and was served promptly (which was good because we had show tickets). The noise level was a bit high for talking, but there were a couple of parties in our room.

We LOVE this place, and they always take wonderful care of us. Sadly, many folks apparently think it's closed now, during the reconstruction of bridges on Alexander Road. But it is definitely open, and now is a great time to visit.

Overall very happy with food, ambience and value. However......There is something very annoying when appetizer arrives at exact same time as main course. Kinda defeats the purpose. So we ended up cancelling the starters which is just a disappointment. Last round of drinks was also forgotten about and had to be reordered. Hence my low ranking on service.

Both our dinners (Chicken Scarpariello and Grilled Pork Chop) were delicious. Bang bang shrimp appetizer was ok, however the Artichoke Francaise was not very good.

Loved the bar scene when you first walk in. Good place to grab a drink before sitting for dinner. The bar has several interesting beers on tap, along with good house wine, and small plates.
The dinner selections were amazing. Several of us ordered from the specials menu and were very happy w/ the food quality and quantity.
