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.
Love this spot! Come often before theater or whenever I'm in the neighborhood. Small, but always feels like a cozy, intimate neighborhood gathering, with great food.
Salad was too salty. Returned, but new salad lacked dressing. Good news was I was not charged for the salad.
Great food and service. Friendly and consistent. Always a pleasure to be here.
Absolutely fantastic and delicious Valentine’s Day dinner with my fiancée! Thank you so much!
The service was excellent and the food very good
AmaZing food and the sage drink was to die for. I had the veal and it was soo good. Can’t wait to come back
Amazing and yummy food, great service. Would go there again!
The food was good but not hot-sent the soup back and it kept coming back at room temperature-same for the entree -barely warm. Service was very good.
Metropolis never disappoints us - something new in terms of specials as well as incredibly good standard menu items. We bring all our out of town guests here and no matter where they are from they routinely are blown away by the cuisine.
Service is always friendly, helpful but not overbearing. The wine list is fun and the bar has some innovative cocktails.
Just fantastic. As ever. Amazing that a restaurant could stay this good for this long. Food, service, ambiance, s as ll just delightful.
A great place for dinner!
Metropolis is the perfect restaurant for an excellent meal in a quiet, intimate setting. The service is attentive and friendly, and the food is delicious and creative without being too crazy or industrial. We told them we were going to the theater and they kept everything moving so that we were able to eat three courses and never felt rushed.
Have only eaten at Metropolis once before and loved it! Perhaps it was what we ordered, but I just thought the food was average. We had the scallops, brussel sprouts, and cornbread. I liked the cornbread a lot but didn’t care for the sauce on the brussel sprouts nor did I care for the accoutrements plated with the scallops. The scallops themselves were pretty good.
Cozy and delicious restaurant. Would definitely visit again.
We had a wonderful meal, great food and good service!
Great Restaurant and Abience. Selection and presentation of the Dinner was excellent.
I like the feel of cozy spaces like this...a homey neighborhood feel where everyone is welcomed in. Since it was our first visit, my three dining companions and I decided to order several dishes and shared everything! Dieting was out as we enjoyed the the rigatoni, a mushroom pasta, as well as a potato gratin. We did start with a freshly prepared kale and brussel sprout said which was delicious. The pomegranates gave it a nice touch and colorful presentation. Scallops were sweet and nicely prepared. The service was friendly and accommodating, if not a bit lacking as the place got busier. No worries for us with plenty of time to relax and enjoy.We all agree that we will be back to try additional choices.
One of our favorite spots to relax, talk, eat great food and drink delicious wine. Never a scene but always a cool vibe.
A delightful environment, excellent food, and a great value.
One of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time. The food was superb and the service was just attentive enough. I had the prix fixe option that included appetizer, entree and dessert for $30. When you add in a glass of wine and tip, that’s about $50 for an exceptional dining experience in Boston This was a win, win !
Love this restaurant! Great ambiance! Great food! Great Service!
Great food. Better service. The best ambiance. We'll be back!
Lovely setting, excellent service, diverse menu. My some regret was ordering the veal for my fiancé. The veal was very chewy, I bitter disappointment for a very special occasion.
Metropolis never disappoints! I have not been there for a while and I'm glad to be back. It is a perfect place for dinner before or after the theater. The prefix dinner was a great bargain. The food was perfectly prepared, the waiter was great and the service was perfect.
Went here for birthday celebration with my family and was not disappointed. Food was great and service was even better .
A lovely Christmas Eve dinner with my husband; great ambience, food, cocktail & service!
Love love love Metropolis...cozy city ambiance and the food is creative with a delicious mix of vegetables and meat. I like dishes that have both in them. Unusual appetizers...loved the brussel sprouts and the sweet potato cornbread. We have brought meat eaters and vegetarians to Metropolis and everyone is happy!
