Much quieter than I thought it would be. Lemon chicken was great, gelato dessert was excellent, and service was excellent. On this night, all 5 stars, even my date was, well uh 10 stars for her!

I had requested a corner table because 1 of our friends has a hearing problem. We were actually seated in an area where there were no other diners. It was much appreciated.

We ordered drinks and appetizers, which were promptly served. The filet mignon egg rolls were very tasty!

Dinners came out in a reasonable amount of time. Our friends each ordered the steak salad. The steak on each was cooked the way it was requested. I had a burger that was very good, and again, cooked the way I asked for it. My boyfriend had a full entrée of the scallops and they also were cooked correctly.

The chocolate skillet dessert was phenomenal.

Very good food... Noise level was high but enjoyable. Lounge was nice, elegant. Enjoyed a nice cocktail before dinner, not rushed which I like and table was ready on time. Serve was on point!

It was ok from what I remember. It looked a bit outdated and the service wasn’t at all very good. The waitress had a puss on her face and then she acted like a total brat when I said something about the menu and made a mistake. She had to prove me wrong about something I mentioned. Anyway it’s just ok.

Always loved MetroCafe, I do not go very often. I recently went and was a little disappointed as the menu has been reduced- used to be several pages long. Now all on one page- less choices. Ordered filet mignon- was just OK- my wife ordered scallops over risotto- which she absolutely loved in the past. She said it was good but no where near as good as it used to be. Maybe different chef the night we went??
In the past the food was awesome. I am hoping it was just a bad night for them. Still a good place but not as much as a standout like it used to be in my opinion

Bar and bar food along with service was excellent. Atmosphere very appealing.
I had the scallops and risotto. Lots of sand in the scallops. Risotto was blah. Not worth the cost. Apple strudel dessert was pretty good. Our server was attentive and excellent.

Metropolitan has always been consistent. The food and service have been very good to excellent. It was ashame that on this night a group sitting in the middle of the rear room were very loud and disrespectful and ruined what would have been a very pleasant dining experience.

Cute place. We ate outside where they had a band playing on Main Street. The service was good , but the menu and food need to be updated. Portions are getting smaller , especially the sushi rolls. (Tiny). Still had fun outside singing !!! Great wine list

Outstanding restaurant in all respects. There were 8 of us seated at an alcove table. Menu is interesting and diverse. We sampled a variety of appetizers, each one better than the other. Entrees beautifully served. The spicy crabmeat over ink linguine is to die for! The service we received from our waiter, Skylar, was impeccable. Oh, can't forget the superb cocktails. Best Sapphire dirty martini ever. Can't wait to dine there again.

Out table was ready yet they made us wait for 10 minutes. Then they sat us at the same empty table. The food is really good. A little over priced! I asked for more dressing, I never received it. Drinks are very good, again pricey.

Disappointed to find a smaller menu, smaller portions and poor plate presentation. Bar was empty even though it was 1/2 price happy hour. Dining room was empty. We were the ONLY table seated in the dining area closest to kitchen for our entire 2 hr meal. Service was very slow. No bread offered but brought when asked. Appetizers small, salad dry, Asian steak was always a favorite but not this time. New management?

Megan and the staff were amazing.

It was my 1st time here and she provided excellent recommendations which turned out to be great.

I had the Asian steak. It was cooked exactly the way that I requested.

The other 2 members of my party are typically hard to please but they loved this place.

I would definitely go back again.
