I'll start by saying I think it is a little outrageous that they charge over $4 for butter to add to your bread. We were 2 people. I ordered the shrimp and pork risotto which was very soupy; not at all the texture I would expect or want with a risotto. I ended up eating the proteins and basically leaving the overcooked rice untouched. Other diner ate a fish dish, which he seemed to enjoy. We shared a dessert, the creme brulee which was OK. Overall, we liked the drinks, the ambiance, and the service but the food was underwhelming for the price.
Food and servers great
Theatre “crowd” presence drove them to be a little pushy all around in terms of rush effect
Best to go, if possible, on nights when no shows running nearby
Welcoming atmosphere. Delicious cocktails. Wide-ranging menu with a prix fixe option. Get you out in good time for the theatre! Friendly service. Desserts sometimes almost too large! We go there again and again because it’s a comfortable experience and close to the Calderwood Pavillion.
Charming little spot. The booths are very tight or cozy depending on your girth. The prix fix menus befor 6:30 is a great value. Service seemed in one case was a bit unfriendly but they might have been having a bad day and all others were delightful. Menus was interesting and well prepared.
My cocktail was delicious, bread was good too. Food was fine.
I was really excited about the food but everything I ordered was cooked in a less than exceptional way. I was disappointed.
Always good food and service
Superb evening out! Everything was terrific but the sriracha Brussels sprouts app is stellar. Order two!
Always amazing and super delicious with a wonderful staff!
Best duck I’ve ever had. You have to try the brussel sprouts!
Just another wonderful meal at Metropolis! We had Ashley as our server, smart, personable, friendly, and informative. We ordered several appetizers and the scallop entree. All were delicious. It was a wonderful evening!
Always great food and service. Our waiter, Mikey, was excellent; not in your face but appropriately attentive. Smaller restaurant so very comfortable feeling. One of our favorites.
Everything was great!
Would not recommend to anyone. The only thing that made up for how poor the food was was our fabulous server. The food was almost inedible, the only good part of our meal was the truffle sea salt butter. Especially for that area, there’s SUCH better options in restaurants.
Shared dinner and conversation with family from Arizona... food was delicious and we never felt rushed. Although we had requested a booth.. keep in mind it can feel a little “tight” especially if you are not on the small side.
The food was spectacular. Really really delicious flavors and fresh seasonal ingredients. Definitely plan on returning.
We visited for the first time for the Dine Out Boston. The prix fix menu was outstanding. I had the flatbread for the app, pork chop for the main and bread pudding for dessert. All were excellent. The wait staff was highly attentive and let us dine at our leisure. Only downside is they didn't have our first selection of wine. Overall it was a great experience and we'll be back.
Great price fixe menu during Boston eat out week!
If you want excellent food
in a quant non scene restaurant
this is the place in the South End for you
Food was good. It was a HOT night and the A/C didn’t seem to be working well. I was warm and uncomfortable. I
Mikey was an awesome waiter and the food was good as well. We will definitely be back!
The food was delicious and fresh. Our server was knowledgeable and very helpful as she shared a good allergy with one of our party. It really made navigating the menu easy and added to an overall great experience.
Enjoyed my meal. Very low key, friendly place with high quality food.
Reunion with old out-of-town friends. Our server was delightful and dinner was, as always, perfection!
Great service, cozy location, and lots of variety to please vegetarians, carnivores, and fish fans alike. And entrees all include vegetables as well so is a well rounded meal.
Love this place! Dinner was amazing! We have eaten here for brunch and dinner on multiple occasions. Small enough place to feel intimate and exclusive. The staff are attentive and very friendly. Can be a little loud if you are seated by a larger party but not nearly as bad as some other places we’ve eaten around Boston. The truffle butter with sea salt is fantastic!
We really enjoyed this restaurant. We had reservations, but it was a slow night so they weren’t necessary. The staff was attentive and the food and drinks were outstanding. We dine out a lot and 5 star reviews have to be earned. They definitely earned them here. Highly recommend!
This place is such a hidden gem. Don't waste your time on Newbury street at mediocre restaurants when you can go to the South End and find a place like this. The food quality is amazing, they frequently change the menu and use fresh ingredients. The ambiance is also lovely and cozy, perfect for a romantic night out. Great cocktails as well. I highly recommend this place!!!
This is one of our favorite places . It’s a small Parisian style restaurant with a small bar . Food is consistently excellent as is the service.
Excellent food! The service was excellent and the ambience was very nice. Highly recommend. The waiter made a great suggestion for wine to pair with my dish. I cannot wait to go back!
Food and service was incredible, but the AC wasn’t really working and that made the overall experience tough. Will try again on a cooler day.
Consistently good food every time. A great neighborhood gem!
Quaint and welcoming European restaurant with delicious food and upscale pricing.
Our go-to neighborhood restaurant for overall great quaility food and drink, excellent service and cozy venue. We have NEVER been disappointed!
Excellent food and service!
Cute little spot in the South End. Food was much heavier than expected...they use a lot of heavy cream and butter in the dishes. We sat at the bar which was nice but the bartender was clearly at the end of his shift and seemed to rush us out, though sort of politely, but also very blatantly. I’ll go back, but I won’t rush there.
Wonderful in every way!
The food was excellent and generous.
Consistently excellent and creative food. Lovely and comfortable setting. A gem!!!
