Metropolitan Cafe Ratings and Reviews
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
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.
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.
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!
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.
Seated immediately. Service and timing of the meal was great. Food delicious. Mussels were spicy with plenty of juicy to dip bread. Short ribs were tender served with fluffy wasabi mashed potatoes, skirt steak was cooked perfectly served with lo mein noodles. Too full for dessert. Lively bar area. Will return and would definitely recommend.
Metro has been a go to for me since high school. Food isn’t incredible but it is consistently good and there is something to be said for that. Great bar scene, nice outdoor seating, good sushi and great service. If you want a nice spot to take a date that has an energetic crowd, nice bar, and good food, this is where you want to be.
The food was ok, nothing over the top however the prices were over the top! We had made our reservation for 6:00 planning on receiving 1000 pts from open table. We were quite surprised to only receive 100 pts. Reason being, without our knowledge, the restaurant changed the reservation to 6:15. We will not be returning.
