Most of our dishes were really great and the service and ambiance were great so 5 stars overall. One dish was kind of missing something - the goat cheese risotto didn’t seem to have any goat cheese or tang or anything like that, kinda wondered if it was forgotten but both of the dishes were bland. The other dishes had us raving though. Cocktails were excellent. I’ll go back.

Just a great experience overall once again. Small bistro atmosphere but great staff, food and ambiance. Not great for big groups on busy night but intimate dinners or going out with a few friends.

Four of us went to Metropolis after a theater performance on a Saturday in February. We arrived a little early and it was slammed, but the hostess got us wine and helped us find space to stand in the very tight restaurant. Our table was ready 2 minutes early which impressed us, given the crowd. Food was terrific, especially the veal. the beet carpaccio was remarkable and a hit. The creme brulee was lovely.

the consensus is that Metropolis is a fun, lively, bistro and we'd love to go back.
