Metropolitan Bistro Ratings and Reviews
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
This was my first time here and the food was great. I had the salmon over quinoa which was delicious, however, the service wasn't great. The bartender was slow and didn't know what was on the drink menu when we sat down at the bar prior to being seated at our table (even though there were no other patrons at the bar) and the waitress forgot our drinks and was hard to find. Hopefully a one-off situation & I would definitely return. The food and ambiance of the place outweighed the distracted wait-staff.
