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.
Birthday meal with girl friends
Filet mignon was cooked as ordered but could have been seared better! Service was great. Sat upstairs so it was a little bit too warm & too dark.
Great meal and the service was excellent, would highly recommend.
Great food. Great service. Great ambiance. My go to place!
My husband & I had dinner upstairs
We were on top of the tables to the left and right of us
To the point of feeling like we had no privacy
The service,food & overall experience was ok not great not terrible just ok
We enjoyed our experience at Metropolitan cafe very much. Our table was ready on time and the menu was expansive. The Sangria was perfect and i Ordered a special fish that was delicious! From apps to dessert everything was perfect. Our waiter Matt was excellent on recommendations and very personable. Will definitely be returning again.
Went early. No wait. Waiter very attentive and both meals were very good.
Delicious food! Fantastic choices, we couldn't decide what to get! The service was top-notch also! I'll definitely be back!
Upscale casual hot spot in town. It was a beautiful evening eating in a more quiet room inside the restaurant. There was a long wait to sit outside. 3 of us had the Mahi Mahi special with veggies and blended rice. It was delicious. All had lovely house salads as well. We are watching our waistlines so no dessert tonight even though it was very tempting. After all these years, I would say the place is needing a paint job but in a fresh new color...should be lightened up in our opinion.
We had an enjoyable experience with an attentive wait staff. Loved our cocktails.
The waiter offered choices that would worked great with my weight loss program.
It was ok. My first time at this place and I told the greeters that. Nonetheless, They sat us on the first floor in back by the kitchen. My seat at the booth gave me a clear view of the walkway to the kitchen area. Not very attractive. The crab chop sticks were ok. I think it needed a sauce to go with it. The ahi Tuna app was very nice. The drinks were good. I doubt that I will return though.
Go there often. My favorite restaurant.
