Metropolitan Cafe is always a good go to place to get consistent food and service . Drinks are fairly priced. The menu offers something for everyone. From sushi to steak, everything is well prepared and tasty.
Staff is very well trained, professional and willing to make your experience a good one.
Will continue to come here multiple times per month.

Food was average. Servers were very professional though. My husband liked his burger but the shrimp and grits were quite bland. I won’t make a return visit.

Badly needed date nite w the hubs. Our server was OUTSTANDING. Never a bad meal at The Met Cafe. Apps were on fire (shrimp/calamari app is 🔥 ). Cocktails are inventive and yummy. Great time.

Excellent food and service. The short ribs entrée and lobster special were delicious. Sushi appetizer was good as well. Unfortunately the lobster bisque was not good; it tasted like a watery tomato soup. Wine, beer, dessert, tea & after dinner drinks were great too. We were not happy about our tiny table upstairs as we were stuck near a corner and the servers had to practically climb over us every few minutes to get to other tables. The upstairs mens & ladies rooms had a huge plant blocking the doors? The bathroom stall doors kept loudly slamming shut startling us in the upstairs ladies room. Downstairs had a private unisex restroom which was fine.

Stellar local restaurant that never disappoints, with a great bar for the perfect Zyr martini! The menu has great staples, but we had 2 of the specials which were amazing. The wait was a bit long for the entrees but understandably so...it was Valentines Day. This is one of my favorites!

Table for four please. We were seated upstairs in a booth. The booths are narrow and while we aren't big people, we could have used more room. Metropolitan does have a nice wine list. I am a huge fan of grilled cheese and when I saw that offered as an appetizer, I was thrilled. However, it was dry and the cheese was very sparse. The men ordered sushi and were pleased with the portion size and taste. However, my sister and I ordered steaks. The steaks had great flavor, but there was a lot of fat. (probably explains the great flavor.)

Of note: There are multiple bathrooms; one unisex upstairs and gender specific downstairs. The upstairs bathroom had evidence of being used by people with less than perfect aim.

I have been to Metro Café in the past and will return in the future. The food is excellent with good choices. The staff is friendly and attentive. It is a cozy place. The prices are reasonable especially for the portions you receive which is plentiful. As noted I have been there before and will be returning often.

Metro is one of our favorite spots for a casual meal and a few drinks. Food is consistent and menu offers meat, vegetables, seafood and sushi. They offer drink specials on weeknights. Never had a bad meal here.

Generally we dine at this restaurant about 4 or 5 times a year over the passed 15 years. It’s one of the few upscale restaurants that is close to our home. The overall experience last night was probably the best. We found the food to be outstanding and our server Ryan was very personable and attentive. I had the tomato soup special and the Asian steak. We shared the avocado toast appetizer and my wife ordered the scallop pinwheel entrée. Everything we ordered was excellent. The only negative was that there were 2 very noisy groups very close to us. Thankfully they left halfway through our meal. Obviously I will continue to return to the Metropolitan Cafe.
