Metropolitan Café offers a unique New American Menu with a Pacific Rim flair. Whether you are in the mood for some sushi or small plates in our lounge, a glass of wine from our Wine Spectator Award Winning list, a cocktail from our lively martini bar or an exquisite lunch or dinner, Metropolitan Café offers a wealth of choices in a hip, upscale yet casual atmosphere. We would like to make our guests aware that outside dining is seated on a first come first serve basis, should we have availability on the patio we would be more than happy to accommodate you.

Very slow service considering we were the only table outside. Food came out wrong so I had to wait for them to fix it. Very disappointed

Seated outside in the back instead of the front. Ambience just isn't the same. Food was good.

One appetizer, three sodas, three main courses = $150 (prior to tip) . OK if the food quality is top-tier, but this was barroom mediocrity. The "signature" crispy calamari was soggy (still tasted OK though), one steak ordered medium rare came very medium, while the filet mignon was a mediocre cut of meat at best. Fish was OK but $30 for a small piece of cod? Not exactly a hard-to-find fish...
Service was good but I left feeling I was jacked on the price, as demand for seating is apparently outstripping supply in New Jersey these days. Still, hard to recommend at this quality and price. You may be better served here with the "handheld" menu of sliders, fish tacos, etc...

Had a wonderful time. Sat outdoors in front of a waterfall. It was romantic and private. The waitress was excellent and the food was delicious!! Definitely will come back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and drinks. It was a beautiful evening for outdoor dining. Servers were attentive. We enjoyed the potstickers for our appetizer. I enjoyed my steak salad and my husband enjoyed his cod served with rice and spinach.

Excited to finally go out to eat! Considering the constraints of their small outdoor area, they managed beautifully. We had the fillet, the sirloin and sushi...all amazing! My only disappointment was that they no longer carry Zyr :(
Great place to eat!

I had a reservation for 2:00 but they couldn’t seat me because several tables had people lingering. People should respect restaurant policy. We were finally seated at 2:30.

My husband and I had an amazing dinner with the best server. The outdoor dining was beautiful as well as the decor, it was so pleasant to enjoy amazing food and drinks with a beautiful ambiance. The Metropolitan did. It miss a beat during this crazy time and we are so appreciative to the staff, what a treat it was to go out and it’s all thanks to the staff. Thank you

The “alley” dining. The ambience is great and you forget where you are. Will definitely request a table back there every time.

The food at the Metro never disappoints! Their Sushi is ALWAYS the freshest, and their stuffed scallops are 2nd to none... They always seems to have unique cocktail offerings as well...Great date night!

Good to be back to a local mainstay. New menu additions. Always good service and fair pricing . They have done a good job adding outside seating around the building. Supporting our local businesses is so important . Try the dumplings, tacos and seafood selections. All innovative and delicious.

Went to Metro Cafe for our first outside dinning experience. They were very busy but we had a great dining experience, food and drinks outstanding. I give a lot of credit to Ryan it was her first night back to work and she did a wonderful job! Sushi fresh and tasty. We'll be back again soon!

Finally made it out to dinner after quarantine and I was so grateful for Metro being open and making me feel safe. The food was delicious and the service was great. They are following all the guidelines while still maintaining a solid dining experience.
