Excellent food and the outdoor seating during Covid in the fall is great. They have plenty of warm propane heaters and extra space between tables without feeling isolated. Thanks for an awesome dinner and for making us feel safe!
Excellent food, great service...only disappointment was they didn’t have my favorite dish...veal..,,
Always wonderful food, wine, and service. And great space heaters for fall outdoor dining
Foos was fantastic. Mussels app was 100% heaven. Ture feel of a Parisian cafe and the service was terrific. Also a nise selection of wine - not extensive but good choices. My only caution is avaoid the booths. The connected backs rock so if you have a hyper millennial in the next booth (area is full of them) you are in for a bumpy ride
This is my wife and my favorite place . The food and service are always excellent and the restaurant reminds you of a French bistro .
Metropolis was my go-to restaurant during the peak of the COVID-19 outbreak since they had take-out. This was my first dining-in experience at the restaurant this year. The food was wonderful! In fact, so much better than take-out that I was instantly spoiled. My swordfish medallions were terrific, and the entire dining experience was really wonderful. I gave 4 stars only because we couldn't be accommodated at an outside table and I was worried a bit about the rather smallish inside quarters. Anyway, highly recommended.
Peach and cucumber salad had 3 slices of unripe peach and LOTS of cucumbers cut into slices. Risotto had peas which was my bad for ordering because peas are gross. Truffle fries are ridiculously good. They have two rosé wines. Tried both and liked neither. The French wine is too bitter for a rosé and why would the Spanish one be bubbly!? Coffee creme brûlée had a thick brûlée which I didn’t mind. Went well with the coffee custard since sugar was bitter. Chocolate cake was super under done in the middle - maybe that was intentional but not my taste. They had gas lamps outside which made it very cozy on a cold night. Location is nice. Saw lots of cute dogs. Overall food rating: meh
Eat there frequently - excellent food/service and ambiance.
Great neighborhood establishment
Nice outside area, food always very good and reasonable wine selection, always great service.
One of our absolute favorite spots in Boston. Food & wine is always excellent as is the service.
Ashley was great! Food was great! Everything was wonderful! Dined inside and all precautions where taken, felt very safe!
Delicious food, great service fine wine selection.
Mikey and Stephanie are awesome and always friendly and accommodating😊
I could eat Metropolis's mussels forever - so good!
The food was great, waiters were very accommodating, and the noise level was very low, so we could easily have a conversation inside.
Would definitely go back again.
Excellent food and service!! Brussel sprout app was amazing. Rigatoni dish so good!!
We had an excellent meal at Metropolis. They never disappoint!
Metropolis has been my favorite restaurant in the city for three years now. I was thrilled to see them reopen after covid and enact all the necessary precautions to do it safely, particularly in time for me to go before i moved out of Boston.
Had a great meal at Metropolis. Delicious food, great value, interesting wine list. Our server had some great recommendations on both food and wine. I had the veal and my boyfriend had the chicken and truffle risotto. Crab cakes were delicious for appetizer. We had the creme brûlée for dessert, delicious. Will be back as soon as we can.
The veal was excellent and I tasted my dining companion's swordfish skewers, also delicious. Their outdoor dining setup was very well done; more than 6 feet separated our table with those adjoining. We didn't order dessert because I had ice cream at home to celebrate my birthday. Only minor point is I'd indicated the dinner was to celebrate a birthday but there was no mention made of the fact. NOT a major deal.
Favorite restaurant for food, service and ambience!
One of the best meals I’ve had in a while. Highly recommend the Brussel Sprouts, mussels, the chicken & mushroom risotto, and the veal. Every dish was unique and full of mouthwatering flavor.
Fav neighborhood spot. Glad to see them during this crazy time. :)
My experience was SO PLEASANT! From the moment I walked in the door I felt welcomed. The energy was so positive I felt like I was at a family members house for dinner! The food was amazing to match. Thank you guys!
Great service and the food was spectacular. The outdoor seating is cute and comfortable.
Waitress was super nice and friendly. Food was very good and I pricing was fair. Outside space was helpful.
Cheerful and attentive service made dining at Metropolis during the COVID era almost seem normal. Nice to sit outside and food was, as usual, delicious and interesting.
Our favorite restaurant in Boston ! Always friendly, great food and nice French atmosphere.
Metropolis has done the very best to reopen during Covid-19 by spacing diners apart by over the 6 Foot rule inside. Service was excellent, the food delicious, ambience was pre-Covid-19!
My favorite restaurant in the South End.
It’s one of our favorite spots in Boston. They have a consistent menu that they do well and the service is always amazing. The waitstaff is especially great here.
My favorite spot in the South End! My partner and I have been going to Metropolis for years. The rigatoni is my favorite dish on the menu. Great spot for a romantic dinner.
Always great food, good service and wonderful environment. It’s my favorite south End restaurant.
We were there for the Dine Out Boston promotion . Excellent 3 course meal for $33.00.
The service was professional and thoughtful and my companion and I really enjoyed the ambiance and our meals too.
As I keep saying, a “go to” neighborhood gem!
Nice little restaurant with nice atmosphere. Food was good, I wasn't blown away, but definitely worth trying. Good for a date/girls night.
It is a gem. Might be time to change up the menu
Wouldn’t come back very quickly. Service was poor and food was very average.
We love this restaurant...consistently very good food, great service and fun atmosphere.
