Awesome food awesome drinks awesome service always
We come here often and unfortunately this time it missed the mark.
To many tables for 2 waiters to handle especially since ours had more then 1/2.
So service was lacking including refills on water, drinks took forever. Very disappointed especially since we come her very frequently.
My salad with skirt steak was delicious - steak was tender and tasty. Salad with shrimp just as good. Highly recommend both.
We ate outside and had a wonderful time with delicious food and excellent service. I had the crab cake dinner, it was flavorful and delicious. He had the steak dinner cooked to perfection. Victoria our waitress was excellent as usual, very attentive and friendly.
The Metropolitan Cafe is a beautiful restaurant. The setting upstairs is very cozy and romantic. My wife and I went there for our 45th wedding anniversary celebration for an intimate dinner. The wine was superb, the food delicious and the service was first class. I highly recommend this establishment.
Good food, excellent service, nice atmosphere, friendly staff...a very nice place to have dinner.
Food was excellent! But...
1. Menu in house was not the same menu posted on open table - and some items were priced higher on site. Not happy that the steak dish that brought us in was not listed on the menu on site.
2.Woman who seated us seemed a little inconvenienced as we pulled her way from something she was doing - no smile, no welcome greeting.
3.Our server was more attentive as he was a trainer, but that was short lived once the next party was seated. In fact, we saw the busboy more than we saw our waiter.
Hoping you can work on your service because your food is really good!
Will never be back. We had a reservation for 8. I was suspect that we were served for two, upstairs.
I was told that this restaurant serves as a night club after 8. Ther service was slow and we were ignored, by our waiter. He seemed to have the entire upstairs, when a large party came in afterwards, he was more attentive to the large party. The Drinks were ok, The entre was so salty, even after I asked them to use low soy sause. Asked for a glass of wine. Had to wait, until my meal was finished. For the prices, not worth the trip to Freehold.
bread was stale. twice. food was just ok. soup was super salty.
Appetizers were delicious (baked bree and filet mignon spring rolls), table bread and flavored butter were also very tasty. Pan seared scallops with mushroom risotto was also beautifully prepared and were delicious. Baked salmon was also very good. Love the Asian-fusion theme.
We have been going here for some 5 years for special occasions but noticed this time the menu is somewhat changed and the upstairs area has been renovated making it quieter. One of us ordered the filet mignon which was excellent but the stuffed pork was much too dry and not good. The Caesars salad was ordinary, the breads in the bread basket were overbaked and therefore too dry. The dumpling appetizer was quite good. So we gave it only 3 stars when a 4 star review might have been given in the past.
Nice location. Neat room, friendly, competent server and good food to boot.
Met some longtime friends for brunch at the Metropolitan Cafe. The setting was great for us to catch up after not seeing each other for years. Our server was terrific. He personalized our orders, kept our drinks topped off and was generally a wonderful asset to the restaurant. The good was good too. We all had the Metro plate of eggs, waffle, bacon and fried potatoes.
Food was definitely not up to their usual standards.
Over cooked .
Special at 42.00 was over cooked and no taste.
Service was mediocre at best
This restaurant has a widely varied menu, from steak to sushi to pasta. The dishes we had were both delicous and beautifully plated. There’s a busy bar up front but the dining area in the rear was fairly quiet for a Friday night. There was a good selection of both wine by the glass and specialty cocktails. The restaurant was more “upscale” than many local hangouts, but still represented a good value.
They have the best crabcakes in nj!! The food is always great here. Thursday's in the summer they have concerts across the street. It us always fin to go here.
Food and service were excellent. A little pricey. Outside seating was enjoyable
The restaurant is lovely and has excellent food. Although our waitress could not have been nicer, it was evident that she needed to be trained better.
As in the past everything was very good. Victoria our server was most gracious and attentive, and pleasantly responding to our questions. We shall return.
The restaurant is a cute little spin in Freehold. Very nice ambiance. We got seated really fast. Seated close to the he kitchen. Our waitress was very nice and polite. I wanted the Safran Shrimp with Ravioli and they didn't have it. So ended up getting Vegetarian pasta. Was good no salt added which was good I added my own salt. Overall our dinning experience was really good. Services good and the food was good too.
We have been here so many times before. This used to be our favorite restaurant. A lot of that’s had to do with the wait staff, mostly Matt. But he left and the quality of service is GONE. The waitress we had so so overwhelmed she couldn’t do her job properly! Took forever for drinks. I had to ask twice for the specials before she remembered to give them. Food came out haphazardly. After 4 years years of coming here and loving it, I think it’s time to find a new place. Food was great but without great service it’s not worth it!!
Drinks are really good but the food is pretty bland and isn’t very good. This place went downhill for some reason. Used to better.
Enjoyed outdoor dining with Great service and Asian food
We have eaten at metropolitan more then a dozen times. But on this occasion the steak was below par and the chicken was dry and the vegetables with it soggy. Our waiter was inattentive and service was slow we didn’t stay for coffee and dessert because of it. We’re going to wait awhile before returning. Maybe it was just an off night.
Another great meal and outstanding service. Our server John, who we seem to get regularly, is always amazing.
Great service and food as always! Great for inside or outside dining.
Sushi was excellent, short rib ragu pasta was amazing, as was the Nutella creme brûlée!
Although there was a group eating in the rear dining area, they made sure we were seated comfortably. Victoria our server was very accommodating and made sure our dining experience was pleasurable. Our food was tasty, served hot, and in a timely manner.
I had the grilled steak salad. The salad was wonderful but the steak was inedible and totally rare. I sent it back to be cooked through and it came back impossible to chew. The manager offered a free dessert but I would not go back to this restaurant and order beef.
Metropolitan is our favorite place to dine out. The food is consistently good the service is always top notch especially our favorite server Victoria
We have always found this place to at least be very good. Usually the food is very good to excellent, the service is prompt and attentive, and drinks are excellent.
Always great at Metro. Love dining outside. Great evening tonight.
Always a good time at Metropolitan Cafe. Excellent wait staff and the food never disappoints.
Nice dinner sitting outside enjoying the weather and live music. Always something delicious on the menu.
Great food and service. Broad menu. Enjoyed it.
I've eaten here quite a few times and on the whole, enjoy my selection and service I receive. The reason I did not give the full 5 stars this time was the entree I chose was not to my liking. It was the crab cakes on top of pickled lo mein noodles. The crab cakes were decent (nothing outstanding) but the combination of them and the noodles was not a good fit. Otherwise, this place is good and I do intend to return, just ordering something different next time :)
Food was excellent!! Had such a great meal and service was great.
I was supposed to receive 1000 points and they’ve not have me 100. Check your points
You can never go wrong food, drinks,service, atmosphere, is exceptional. Great place
Fantastic meal and excellent service - only complaint was that we were seated upstairs where it was somewhat dark and not as appealing as the lovely atmosphere as the main level. Next time when I make a reservation I will note that in my request.
