This is always a great restaurant for food. The only criticism about it is that the menu is stale and never changes. They do, on weekends, have a few specials, however, the menu needs to be updated seasonally, or once a year, etc.
excellent special of cauliflower soup; superb mussel appetizer; good seafood dishes roasted in igloo oven; very affordable good wines by glass and bottle; fun place for friends to get together;
We love the ambience and the food at the Metropolitan! Enjoy the food and drinks for a special time.
Haven’t been here in a while – glad we returned. See Cliff is a great little town, and is close to our home making it even that more convenient. We had dinner on a Friday evening of the Presidents day weekend. We were seated immediately and offered water, which we switched to sparkling. Our waiter came by quickly to take our drink orders. The menu offered something for everyone. The waiter informed us of the specials – we ultimately decided to share a Caesar salad to begin. My husband ordered the chicken Française, & I had the grilled salmon. Both were good. The chicken Française was exceptionally good as were the accompanying mushrooms. There was no room for dessert but all in all, it was A very good meal. Parking wasn’t a problem The night we were there but sometimes can be. The wait staff was very professional. Definitely recommended!
Have been there numerous times and have always loved the dining experience.
Great local place with a wide variety in the menu from burgers to seafood. Service is excellent and friendly. Why do they serve cold bread when they have that wonderful oven?
Food always fresh & delicious. Service with a smile.
The live music was terrific🤩
Our neighborhood go-to place. Welcoming, friendly environment. Casual with great service and good food.
A little disappointing. My lamb chops were very thin and charred masking any flavor. Tried this restaurant several times and probably won't go back.
I had a wonderful time at the restaurant. The service was pristine and the food was fantastic. The entertainment for the night was great and we had such a fun time. I can't wait to go back again!
My sister and I dined at 5:30 shortly after the restaurant opened. The staff was welcoming, the menu enticing, and the food was out of this world. It was quiet, but then we were the first customers. Beautiful bar. In the summer, the windows open and there is an opportunity to eat outside. Lovely restaurant
Exceptional dining experience tucked away from the noisy crowds of Manhasset and Roslyn. Well rounded menu prepared very well. Service always good. Have been there numerous times and always happy with our meal.
Live music was great but not enough wait staff- slow sevice
excellent food. service was slow. nice atmosphere.
our go to place, we are there a couple of times a month. never disappointed.
Very pleasant dining and service was very good. I was on a date and we were able to sit and talk without be constantly interrupted.
Lovely restaurant, great food , great outside in summer , quaint town
Dinner was fresh & delicious. Robert is a terrific waiter.
We can’t understand why this restaurant was not more crowded on a recent Saturday night. Food, service and surroundings are all very good. While I wouldn’t call it five-star dining, everything on the menu was well-prepared. In the winter, what’s special about this place is its location off the beaten path, where you can avoid the usual frenzy of Saturday night dining. And in summer, the outdoor space is a great place to enjoy a good glass of white and a good piece of fish late on a Sunday afternoon. This is a good, solid place for a nice meal.
You can always count on a delicious meal here. Will try to go more often
This was a great place to have dinner and drinks. Hip vibe. Definitely would recommend it. Will be back.
great food and service just an amazing local place to have an enjoyable meal for any occasion
Another delicious dining experience shared with friends. The staff is always accommodating and friendly.
Looking forward to going back!!
This was our first time here and we really enjoyed it. Went with our son and a friend. The pulled pork sliders and ceasar salad were delicious. I had the tilapia and my husband had the roasted chicken. Nice portions and both were delicious.
Fabulous meal , awesome food and great service... never disappoints, always good!!
We have eaten here many times but it was just so so this night. I had the whole fish which was flooded in sauce. I had asked for the sauce on the side but our waitress said it needed the sauce. I would not have it again. Our waitress was a tad in the zone. She was nice, just kind of somewhere else. She asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu and we said sure. We waited a long time and then she brought us the check! We just paid it and left. We tipped her well as we usually do. No hard feelings, just wasn’t her night.
Great meal in a great restaurant. Made a last minute reservation, showed up a little early and was seated right away. Had a delicious meal with great service.
We love Metro and go there often, especially in the summer when it's great to sit outside. On a quiet street and not buggy. Varied selections of well-prepared food made with high quality ingredients.
Casual, friendly environment - service is great and owners are terrific. Highly recommend.
Food and service was great
Had a very nice table on the patio
Billy--the owner--is a great guy...always comes by to say hello and check on things
Music was awesome with Chris Kinnear . Food was exceptional . Heirloom Tomato Salad, Beet & Gorgonzola Salad and the Cod entree. Dessert GF carrot cake cupcake. All beautifully done.Service was friendly and attentive. BTW, they have at least 3 GF desserts! ⭐️🍽🍷
The Metropolitan Bistro is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always fresh. The staff and service always has a smile. The owners come by to say hello.
And their gluten-free carrot cupcake is one of the best I have ever eaten...& when I choose to share with my gluten friends they love it too!
Looking forward to my next dinner with my friends.
I have been here several times. Usually it is pretty good. This past weekend was not so great.
Shrimp did not taste right. They did take the salad with shrimp off the bill. Pork chops overdone. Server must have been new.
Music is always good.
Great service , nice live music playing and delicious as always. We had the lobster sliders for our appetizer, very fresh, not too much mayo , and the bread was perfect. I had the sliced sirloin and my friend had the roasted chicken, both cooked and seasoned perfectly, and the cheesecake was wonderfully creamy and not overly sweet. Kudos to the bartender too - our martinis and margaritas were delicious and strong.
We chose this restaurant because it's local, we can walk to it. The menu is good for me because I can order a vegan option.
We have been to Metropolitan Bistro a few times. They do everything well. We were warmly greeted and promptly seated. They have a nice American Grill menu, with excellent fish, pasta and meat choices. We started with mussels, a soup du jour French onion soup, and a few salads, all excellent. Mains were gnocchi bolognese, the parparadella dish and the hamburger. All were "lick your plate" good. A special shout out to the hand made crinkle cut fries ( more like potato chips) that come with the burger. They have a lovely outdoor terrace for in season dining. Sadly for us, it even though still summer, it was not outdoor dining weather during our visit. This is an excellent neighborhood restaurant, and highly recommended.
Very nice neighborhood restaurant. Food is average+. Great atmosphere. Staff is super friendly. We put a pizza on the table as an appetizer-everyone took a slice and loved it. The beet salad is delish-there were a ton of beets and dressed nicely. Our family had a very nice, enjoyable time. Too bad it was too cool that evening to eat outdoors.
It's always great seeing different menu options at this beautiful neighborhood restaurant!
We had a lovely evening sitting outside on a beautiful evening sharing a delicious dinner with dear friends.
