Everything was delicious!
We sat outside and had a lovely dinner. We had the kale salad, mussels, burger, salmon, and truffle fries.
Actually quite average food, based on this one visit. Nothing special. Service was very polite and responsive to our requests. Presentation of food was on small plates, and could have looked better too.
The pancakes which is my fav at metropolis was dry and burnt
Perfect little neighbor spot! Best Sat/Sun brunch. Yum....blueberry pancakes. Yum YUM YUM, huevo rancheros!
We ate outside and it was a little cool and windy, but we enjoyed our meal. The restaurant is quite small, but it might have been better for us to be inside. The service and food were great!
Metropolis never, ever disappoints. And on top of the great food, the service is amazing!
Metropolis was a great dinner date spot in the South End neighborhood! It is fairly casual but has a very nice and friendly vibe. It is a small restaurant with tons of energy. The food was delicious, and although the menu is small there seemed to be something for everybody.
As always, perfect friendly neighborhood joint
Rock shrimp risotto and pan roasted chicken were excellent entree choices! Love the food and service!
Amazing food and great service. Will definitely be back!
Loved the grits. The avocado toast looked great
Metropolis is one of our go-to's. The food is always outstanding, the ambiance cozy and fun and the service is great. The menu changes but you really can't go wrong!
Metropolis never fails! Charming little place with superb food, excellent and friendly service, and a delightful energy.
Delicious, fresh, creative!
Sat on the patio with a friend. He got a cosmo and I got a strawberry margarita. Both were delicious and very alcohol forward. He had the rigatoni. I opted for the appetizer crab cake and brussel sprouts (which were incredible) as a meal. Great portion sizes and the food was excellent. We were too full for dessert, but I will definitely be back.
Their precautions were excellent but the inside space is very small. I would definitely sit inside once covid numbers are back down.
My husband and I have always loved Metropolis and returned to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. We have been taking COVID precautions quite seriously since we have a 17month old son who is yet unable to be vaccinated - Metropolis went above and beyond to confirm outdoor seating and provided adequate spacing, as well as hand sanitizer at each table. Our waitress Isabella was wonderful and surprised us with complimentary champagne to celebrate our anniversary. Being able to safely and comfortably spend time to celebrate and dine as a couple meant the world to us - thank you Metropolis!!!
We enjoyed our dinner even though the food was a bit disappointing. The chicken-truffle mushroom risotto started out delicious until we realized it was over-salted. The trout was tasty but a bit overcooked and dry. However, the crab cake appetizer was very good. It's a friendly place with good service and menu variety but the food can be improved.
Food was delicious and service was great.
Amazing food - quality, volume and price, and warm, knowledgeable service as always.
Great staff and wonderful ambiance. Food was wonderful.
These may have been the best pancakes I ever had - everyone at my table cleared their plate!
Music, ambiance, service, and friends to the table next to me were all so fun. They honestly need more servers to bring more fun
Had the prix fixe menu. Loved everything from the PEI mussels/tomato and watermelon salad apps to the shrimp orecchiette to the mango panna coota dessert. Can’t wait to go back and do it all over again.
I was happy with my meal, but my mother was disappointed with hers, and I can understand her reasoning. The mussels on the menu and on the restaurant week menu were both very spicy because of the jalapenos, and this ingredient was not listed in the description. They were so spicy that she could not enjoy them or eat them, and the restaurant didn't do anything to accommodate her or try to replace it with something else. The untraditional strawberry cheesecake was also a huge disappointment. It is not a cheesecake by any means. It is a cake. Several members of our group ordered this, and no one was impressed! I was bummed about this meal because I have enjoyed Metropolis in the past and was excited to take my parents to show them, but in the end, I wish we had gone somewhere else.
Risotto is soo delicious - Highly recommend eating there
Fantastic meal filled with great flavor and wonderful service. We had a later reservation and ended up closing down the place but we were never rushed and had to finish every bite. Will be back!
Metropolis never disappoints, the food is incredible.
One of the most consistently good dining experiences in Boston.
Delicious food, wonderful drinks snd friendly staff
Delicious! Friendly staff! I cannot say enough about the flavors !! Quaint little gem! Must try!
HUGE fan of Metropolis Cafe. Great food, great service, great ambiance...truly one of my favorite spots to meet up with old friends to reconnect.
Delicious food in a quaint environment.
Patio tables are lovely. Delicious Bloody Mary’s.
We were impressed above and beyond by the brunch at Metropolis. The best one we’ve had in a while! We reserved the terrace, and the ambiance was perfect for brunch- sunny, pretty layout and feeling that you’re somewhere in Europe. I ordered a cappuccino which had a lot of fluffy foam as I like it and was balanced in taste, not too bitter or strong (although they only had whole milk, it would be great if they had non-dairy options). For the food I went for cheesy grits and eggs, with eggs poached, and my date was thinking first of pancakes with bacon (smoky stack I believe was the name), but the table next to us convinced him that huevos rancheros that they just got was the way to go, so he got those. And were they right! The best huevos rancheros I tried in Boston, he loved them! They weren’t very traditional, but instead a very delicious and original interpretation. My grits were tasty too, and the chorizo they came with was very good. My eggs were cooked perfectly. We also ordered a side of pancake with caramelized bananas which was also amazing. I got also a glass of grapefruit juice which was good but I had to remind of after the food arrived. The service was friendly and the order was correct. Overall a spectacular experience- we’re looking forward to coming back for brunch and also trying out their dinner!
Outstanding food. A bit tight inside but worth the visit.
It was great all around. Will be back!
We brought our granddaughter (18) and a friend. They loved it.
We had an absolutely fantastic time at dinner!! The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and when it started raining, our waiter quickly moved us inside to the bar for dessert & a final cocktail.
We will be back soon! Please, keep doing what you’re doing! Thank you, Robin
The food was outstanding-there was just 2 of us eating and we still got 3 apps as we didn’t want to pass on the great choices - the mussels were the best in my life- I always order mussels whenever they are on the menu and you will be blown away by the unique tangy flavor and the fabulous bread to dip with- we both got a risotto dish-a chicken and truffle for my partner and I got the rock shrimp risotto-I’m just blown away by the flavor
I’m chomping at the bit to run back here again and again!
I kid you not-they will knock your socks off here!
Wonderful experience; great spot!
