Met a friend for dinner and had a lovely time. My friend enjoyed the risotto, and I loved the Metropolis burger. The cocoanut layer cake was a superb dessert and the waitress was very attentive. We sat outside and the only drawback was that the umbrellas didn’t protect well from the late afternoon sun
Our group ordered one of each of their 3 risottos and they were all awesome! Even though we were a later arrival towards the end of the night, the service was excellent and we had an amazing time. Will be back!
The food was incredible as well as the waitress and the drinks. Will certainly will be back.
Fabulous as usual. Love the diverse menu. This is our favorite Boston restaurant...never disappoints. Lots of vegetables, plenty of choices of fish and meat, and a great choice of desserts.
My partner's dinner (lamb chops) was very good. Mine was not - the avocado/cucumber gazpacho was acid with lemon juice and loaded with something gritty and fried so that there was no taste whatever of either cucumber or avocado. The rock shrimp risotto was floating in oil and swamped with diced chorizo. Disappointing to say the least.
We will give Metropolis a miss for a while.
Birthday celebration for my girlfriend. This is her favorite restaurant
Lovely neighborhood bistro. Intimate, friendly and a menu to match.
Great highly recommend
What a treat to get to eat outside at one of our favorite restaurants (and the site of our first date!) after all of this time. Safety protocols were excellent and the food was great. Our server was kind and accommodating.
My only complaint was the length it time to receive our main courses. My husband and I were seated a few minutes before 6:00pm, and our appetizers arrived around 6:20. Our entrees did not arrive until 7:10 and the four person table next to us received their entrees about 15 minutes before us, even though they were seated 5-10 minutes later. Given a 90 minute limit for dining, this was problematic.
That said, we will be back!
We went here for a drink after dining elsewhere, and it was wonderful. We shared an order of Brussels sprouts, and I got a strawberry margarita while my friend got a glass of white wine. The ambiance was great, and the place was super homey and cute.
Such a lovely evening outside! The food was fresh and amazing. The service was wonderful. Can't wait to go back!
So happy to be dining out again. We consider Metropolis a lovely bit of Europe in Boston. Cozy bistro atmosphere, good flavors. continental portions and good value. Of course, we haven't been able to dine inside for a while, but things have changed. Prices have gone way up, so value is down. When we were there, only two valiant servers were trying to please indoor and outdoor seating, a big lift that was not so successful. Wishing for a rewind, but we will try again.
Fabulous brunch. We sat out on their patio, which wasn't especially noisy despite being right on Tremont. Our server was lovely and the eggs benedict and pancake were fabulous. Every time I've been to Metropolis the food and the service has been excellent.
Good but not great food. Had the salmon, which was nice. Did not like the duck or the hacked chicken dishes. Very good waitstaff.
Fantastic food, great atmosphere. We had a group of 4 and ordered quite a bit. Every dish was fantastic with no duds
Metropolis is a very solid 'go-to' Fantastic service and good food in a warm atmosphere.
Fantastic food, service, and atmosphere! Can’t wait to go back!
We got the table I requested and the food, service and ambiance were all excellent.
Went for Mother's Day Brunch.... food quite average, service abrupt. Would not go back and would not recommend.
Our group had an overall lovely dining experience at Metropolis. The food was delicious; I had the chicken, and it was unique but still classic flavors. The service was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone hoping to dine in a pleasing setting, excellent and terrific menu, and outstanding service.
We were met and immediately seated. The waitstaff was friendly and informative. The wine list did not disappoint and we had a delicious Malbec We all ordered the lobster carbonara specialty and enjoyed the freshness of each ingredient. Dessert was a blueberry crumble that just topped off a perfect experience. Thank you.
Fabulous..second time dining at the Metropolis. I just had to go back to have the Brussels Sprouts for an appetizer, then the Hacked Chicken Risotto for the main entree..out of this world..our server was so pleasant and helpful..we will be going back in the near future.
The only reason I’m giving this 4*s is because we ordered two desserts because the first one (the blueberry crumble) tasted powdery and so we got the coconut cake. But that tasted more like lemon than coconut? But everything else was amazing. I’d recommend and go back any day! Top service and great dinner options! Well done.
I have been going to Metropolis
for the last 25 years.
Never disappoints and always amazes!
This restaurant is truly a gem.
Make sure to start with the mussels.
My favorite waitress in Boston is Ashly
