Food and service were excellent! This is a small bistro still restaurant with excellent food and service . We will be back soon!
I was relieved to have a great experience at metropolis because the last time i was there, the service and food were both good, but well below the previous times i had been there. This time, the service was great and the special dish--a pasta with seafood--was terrific. I think the kitchen does get overwhelmed sometimes, so try to go at less busy times.
Great service. Friendly staff. Quiet yet chique ambience. Prixe fixe menu was great and also great value
Neighborhood gem. Great food & staff. Everything on the menu is great.
I had the three-course prix fixe, with the wedge salad, rainbow trout and blueberry ricotta cake. If ordered a la carte, it would be $46, but it's offered at just under $30. Not only is it a great value, but everything tasted wonderful. The only downside was that with 5 people to two fairly small tables it was a bit tight. Still, it is highly recommended. We'll definitely return to order other items on the menu.
Great neighborhood spot you'll want to come back to!
Metropolis is always a wonderful experience, the knowledge. And the wonderful food always make it a great evening!
Great good. Would definitely go back. My black bass was outstanding. The mussels were huge and the sauce delicious.
A very regular go-to favorite. The best veal scallopini in town. The best brussel sprouts anywhere. Terrific bread and garlic-laced olive oil. Unpretentious neighborhood bistro, friendly service. The only possible improvement - a small selection of dry sherry and Lillet.
Fabulous meal at a restaurant that feels "local". Nice assortment of European-inspired dishes (I had the veal medallions - delicious) and a really good list of wines by the glass (I had a Gruner Veltliner). Excellent service, too.
Four of us enjoyed the Prix Fix menu and everything was so delicious. Our waiter was great and the noise level was such that we could converse easily but the place sounded happily full of contented diners.
A true South End neighborhood gem!
Fantastic! Delicious and nutritious options, great portion sizes. Gracious service. Comfortable environment. Consistently a favorite.
Duck Trio was fabulous.
Outstanding service, delicious food and great value. Quaint atmosphere. Perfect spot for any occasion !
everything delicious from start to finish, lots of attention put in each dish-
Amazing restaurant! What a great find in the South End.
Excellent service. Michaela, Ashley always deliver excellent customer service.
Always delicious and welcoming. Great new spring menu.
This is my go-to for a Boston small-group-of-friends brunch or dinner. The food is always delicious. The wine selection on point (spring for their Sancerre if you can), and the mixed beverages are limited but super tasty. The entry way is small and abrupt, the booths and tables on the smaller side, so if you're a wide-framed person, be prepared. Dining at the bar is a lovely option. The wait staff are super knowledgeable. Overall, not an overwhelming number of options, but everyone who dines with you will find something they like. For Brunch, try the BBH.
As usual, an outstanding overall experience
If you want to explore a true French restaurant, this is it . From the salad to the desert everything was excellent , especially our server Ashley . We will be back soon.
Intimate bistro style restaurant, with excellent service and delicious food
Loved this spot! We had a group of 6 and decided to do family style dining and order a bit of everything. Every single dish was delicious, but the risotto was a crowd favorite. Really cool ambiance to the place, excellent spot for a date night (although hopefully you don’t get stuck next to a table of 6 that has the wine flowing like us ;))
A really nice meal. The place is very cute and nicely decorated. Very good service. Cute neighborhood to stroll before or after dinner. We would definitely return.
Still my favorite restaurant. I'm never disappointed. Their veal scallopini with capers is the absolute best anywhere.
Always great service. Delicious appetizers and entrees. Ambiance reminiscent of being in French cafe. Look forward to going back.
We had the prix fixe menu and between the four of us, tried all of the offerings. Everything was delicious.
Great and friendly service and delicious food! Can't wait to go back!
We both got the prix fixe menus, and that was a very good deal. Some of those choices were outstanding (the salad, soup, salmon and the cake), and others were fine. Service was very friendly but could have been a bit faster. We needed to remind the waiter one time that we had asked for more ice. Ambience and noise level quite fine.
Great, reasonably priced restaurant. A great place to go before a show at the Caldwell center in Boston.
Great wine selection, our appetizers were great, my husband’s ribs were great, the trout was a bit underwhelming. Great dessert. Our main complaint was the tiny tables and sitting space.
First time and everything was terrific. We all loved our entrees...excellent service and cozy ambience on a cold Boston evening.
Metropolis Cafe was a wonderful spot! We started with bread and fresh hummus with a bowl of cauliflower soup. I am a vegetarian so I was very impressed with the veggie friendly offerings. For entrees I had the butternut squash risotto and my boyfriend had the short rib. Both entrees were excellent and very well prepared. We were too stuffed after those two courses to try their dessert menu. Cocktails were delicious as well as a great wine selection. Also important to note that the prices were extremely reasonable for the area and the portion size.
But only to a very good friend. I don't want Metropolis to get so crowded we can't get a table on somewhat short notice. Micaela is a magician, and our favorite server outstanding!
The Brussels Sprouts appetizer as well as the rigatoni entree were plate licking excellent. The cauliflower chowder not so much, it was served room temperature and didn’t have much flavor.
this was a remarkably busy night -- Sunday at 5:30 PM -- with a dine-in Boston menu for $33 apiece that was well-chosen and quite good. The wait staff was pretty busy and initial service was very slow -- but then things got going. This is a fun neighborhood-type place which we always enjoy coming to.
Excellent as always.
My husband and I went to Metropolis after a matinee at the Lyric Stage. Metropolis has a varied vegetarian, seafood, and meat eaters menu that appeals to both of us. Metropolis also has a decent list of wines by the glass. It’s a small space so you do feel a bit cramped, or you can decide to feel cozy and intimate instead. The service was attentive, and the food was extremely good. The duck breast was rare and also tender. The beet and pear salad was wonderful and the cauliflower chowder was complex. We will be back.
