Loved the service, ambiance, and food.
Our server was very friendly and attentive!
Brunch at Metropolis is always spot on!
Great food and ambiance
Fabulous! Wonderful food and service!
Pan fried chicken is one of my favorites but it was a little dry this time. My wife's salmon was perfect and delicious. Overall still one of my favorite places.
My favorite restaurant in the South End. Food, wine, service, ambiance always outstanding. Intimate and welcoming.
Great restaurant, quiet. Waitress was attentive, food delicious, hot, served nicely. I would recommend to others! They are following COVID precautions, and feels safe to be in the restaurant.
Delicious food, and the same lovely atmosphere as to what could be found a Metropolis pre-COVID. I appreciate their mindfulness of safety and protocol, and we thoroughly enjoyed our brunch here. Thanks!
My wife and I have coming here for over 20 years and celebrated Valentine Day. It's been at least 10 since we were back and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely awesome and the layered potatoes were worth getting a takeout order for the next day!
Outstanding cocktails, dinner and dessert. Thank you Metropolis for such a great meal!
Staff was friendly and very attentive. Food was delicious. Great atmosphere!
The food is delicious and ambiance is so cozy!
Excellent service and food, the ambiance and natural light was perfect for brunch
I used to loved this place but last time the hostess/waitress was very rude and got my order wrong twice and it wasn’t even a lot of people that day.
Best roast chicken we ever had! All else great too!
The most delicious food ever. The vibe is amazing and service was perfect. 10/10
Consistently great service and delicious food...despite the restrictions still a great place to visit..one small question, why they don’t have martini glasses to serve cocktails in ( this was pre Covid though too) I don’t understand?
But a small blip in an overall wonderful experience
Was actually quite pleasantly surprised. Dined in with 2 others. This was my first time at Metropolis Cafe. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend!
The food is always so good and so is the service!!!
Warm, cozy, romantic restaurant with great food and attentive (but not overly so) staff.
Great brunch, great atmosphere. Would highly recommend!
Amazing food, service and decor. Would be a go-to spot if I lived in the neighborhood!
They are the best!!!!! Made it so comfortable in weirdo Covid times. Love this place
Metropolis is truly a South End gem. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is cozy and the service is superb. Perfect for a dinner with friends or a date night.
Love this place. The food is amazing and the staff is wonderful.
It felt so great to be back at the restaurant. We hadn’t been to the restaurant since March. We are outside between the heat lamps and had the usual delicious Metropolis food!!!
Food was consistent as always. Service was great -- we were outside under heat lamps, but service was very attentive and spot on.
This restaurant is one of our neighborhood favorites...always consistently good food, friendly, professional staff, and immaculate environment.
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.
