Loved our waiter Mikey! Food was delicious and the ambiance was very cozy. Great for small groups or a date night
just love, love this restaurant. never disappointed!!!
I wanted a cozy intimate spot to eat with my husband before the symphony. This restaurant checked all my boxes. Lovely!
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.
Metropolis Cafe is always dependable, always that perfect combination of really good food, appropriately priced, friendly, efficient service. The right choice any time.
The food was terrific and our waiter could not have been more helpful.
Great food, great atmosphere. I thought the cauliflower leek gratin was outstanding!
Some of our food was fantastic and some was ordinary and undercooked and had to go back. The atmosphere and drinks are great. It's not cheap, so I might just go back for apps and drinks sometime.
we just love coming to this gem! Always leave happy with our experience
One of my favorite South End restaurants! Metropolis never disappoints. This visit was on a Wednesday evening--on our way to a show at the BCA--and they accommodated our schedule perfectly. The prix fixe option is a particularly good value, but everything on the menu is reasonably priced and, in my experience, truly delicious. You can't make a wrong choice.
This was our second time at the restaurant and we all raved about it. Cozy feel to the space. We reserved on Open Table and were seated promptly. Fresh iggy's bread with olive oil, garlic and butter. small specialty cocktail list. Tasted a few wines before we decided on a great bottle. I had a bisque with risotto. Top notch. So much flavor. Service excellent. Others in our group had chicken and potatoes. yum. Fresh fish and the past and sausage dish. Too full for dessert. would definitely come here again. Just like the vibe and food a lot. !!!
This was my third time at Metropolis, and it has bee consistently great! Going back there with friends next weekend.
Great food. Somewhat limited menu. They have priced fixe which is good. The restaurant is small ; hostess and wait staff(excellent waiter—can’t remember name) are accommodating.
I’ve gone both times in the winter and there’s a chill despite the heavy velvet curtain blocking the outside door. Other than that...the food is 5 star.
