Not aligned with star level. could be good for evening bar get together, but there is lot of room for improvement in food quality, though presentation was good. Meat preparation was sub-par, vegetarian pasta was not upto mark
Portions got tiny
Have been eating at Metropolitan cafe for many years. Over the past coup,e of years the prices have been increasing and portions have been decreasing . Not sure I will be frequenting this restaurant any more. Food wasn't as good either.
My wife and I went for an anniversary dinner. She had the pinwheel scallops which were very good. I had the pork chop stuffed with brie, apples and cranberries which was also very good.
Great experience! Went to Metropolitan Cafe for Easter brunch with family. We had never been there but chose it simply because it was conveniently located for all of us. We were all so impressed with the variety and quality of food on the brunch buffet that we will definitely go back!
Second time I've eaten here in a few months - came with my husband and another couple. We sat upstairs, which is a great place to be - out of the way. Plenty of food options from starters to salads to main courses and desserts. We shared appetizers and desserts and had our own main courses. Portions were plentiful and we all enjoyed what we ate. I will definitely be back.
My husband and I decided to give this place a try for dinner. Unfortunately we were both very disappointed in the food. I had a house salad to start which was fine. I ordered a sangria which was tasteless. I drink sangria in every restaurant and that was the worst I ever had. We ordered dumplings and fried calamari in their special sauce for appetizers and both were awful. Dumplings had no flavor and the calamari wasn’t fried and the sauce reminded me of a Chinese dish called orange chicken. It was also very chewy. We barely ate it. On a last hope we ordered sushi cause we definitely were not ordering any entrees at this point. The sushi wasn’t great either and at that point we had enough. I will say the service was good. I would not recommend this place at all. In fact none of the entrees I saw being served were very impressive. There prices were high...definitely not worth it. We will never go back.
I will definitely be returning here. This was my first time and everything was absolutely outstanding. I couldn’t be happier and I recommend this establishment to everyone.
Our server matthew was amazing! Had a late Valentine’s Day date plus it was where we had our first date and he made our night so perfect I couldn’t have asked for a better server. He suggested a great wine and came back to the table at the best times. Thank you matthew for the best date night
Food was delicious, one of the best Chilean Seabass I ever had , cooked to perfection!!
Had the braised beef this past Saturday. My wife had the beef ragu pasta, it was fantastic! My braised beef was decent, a little dry and a very small amount for the price point ($28) I would eat here again, but would choose something different.
The waiter is the best
Great place for a nice dinner! Request a table upstairs if you like it a little quieter. Downstairs is not excessively loud, but it does get busy. Service is always great! Food is reliably good and the specials are usually wonderful. The sushi is the freshest we have found in the area and very attractively served. The cocktails and wines are nicely sized pours. Selection is nice and the servers can always recommend something if you are unsure of what you want. Love their cappuccinos as well. Metropolitan is not an everyday restaurant for our budget, but it is one of our go-tos when we are willing to splurge a little, but not that much!
Valentine's Day dinner was very good. Great spot for a nice night out. Bar area is a bit small, but the wait time was not bad for a drink. The feel of the restaurant is cozy and nicely decorated. I would definitely come back.
Ate here several years ago (4+) and didnt have a good meal, but decided to give it a try one more time on Valentines day and had a completely different experience. Our food was Great, the dessert delicious and had excellent service from waitress. I'll def go again and glad i tried again
Food was fantastic! I wish i had more room in my stomach to keep eating. Waitress was superb! The dining room was a bit loud, but other than that, overall fantastic experience, so excited to go back!!!
Sunday brunch on a rainy day. Food was tasty - not as hot as it should be, and it took a long time to get breakfast type items. Desert was delicious though.
Solid restaurant. No big complaints other than the water glass with the lipstick mark on it. A little pricey for quality/overall experience. At a restaurant like this the waiters should know the specials without reading!
My wife and I have been here on a few occasions and sad to say, as the more we have eaten here the worst it's gotten. The service is as bad as the food but, they really have to do something on the kitchen. The food needs flavor and proper technique. I am not trying to be a jerk,but they deserve this. I hope they can improve?
The food and service was good. However, they sat us at the top of the stairs so everyone that came upstairs stopped at our table. Always had someone hanging over our table or banging into us. It was a terrible experience, ruined the dinner and is why I will have to question returning.
Always a great time. Great food and great service.
The food was great and the service was excellent!!!
Nice light lunch menu. We had avocado salads which were delicious! Very good sushi and shrimp tacos. We were very satisfied. Also offered a GF menu.
Always great food! Dependable service.
Nice meal but a bit pricey for the portions served. First time there and I might try it once more and give it another shot
Great food. Great service. But better with a group on the weekends. Table for 2 was tiny. Other then that always a great meal
Ask for Victoria!! She’s the best server!
Always a great meal as well as a variety of specials. Staff very friendly
As good as the food was our service was even better. Thanks for a nice night out.
The paella is fantastic. midweek special prices on wine. Great decor.
Metropolitan is a lovely spot with always good, often great food! We dine here frequently when we are in the mood for something a bit upscale. It can get busy, so reservations are always a good idea (thank you, Open Table!), but they do make an effort to accommodate everyone. During the summer and early fall there are tables for outdoor dining under an overhang facing the street. It can be noisy there as it is right on Main Street, but it makes for good people-watching!
The sushi is always fresh and well prepared, and the specials are always inviting, with something for nearly everyone. I have tried many and have never been disappointed.
The bar is well stocked, they pour a generous glass of wine, and offer several different sakes for those who are interested. The wait staff is attentive, knowledgeable, and make you feel welcome. If you are in the Freehold area this is a restaurant you should have on your dining list.
Really excellent food. Very impressed.
We’re never disappointed eating here. They made my crab cakes with vegetables only like I requested and they were delicious.
Had a great meal and drinks for my birthday!!
Both were great. Margarita crazy good😎
This was our 4th trip there! Both of us had scallops(prepared 2 diff ways, just perfect!)Servers/service again a 10+ and our fav dessert of freshly made mini donuts with 3 sauces for dipping! We dine early 5pm or so establishment quiet, comfortable and relatively intimate!
Great menu and service!
We enjoyed dining there as a family.
I would go again for sure .
We went on a Saturday for late lunch prior to college student returning post thanksgiving break. Our server Matthew was great, friendly and attentive. He recommended items he thought we might enjoy. All of our meals were warm attractive and delicious. Haven’t had a bad meal here Nd have been coming for years.
They were out of 2 things we tried to order. That was disappointing, especially since we are on restricted diets.
Never rushed..great service..good food..
