    Very bad customer service when calling to verify if things was good or not. No answers Was told no event was happening from security downstairs due to floor arrangements. When we got their to ask to pay in advance there was no way to do it. We decided to go after 830 just to see if other people was there and all of sudden things was good.

    We were running late due to a 3 car accident on the highway. We were coming from Wilmette so about drive in traffic but because of the accident it was 1 1/2 hr drive. Called and spoke to Maggie who was so professional and accommodating. We arrived a the young man that greeted us was smiling and just put us in a good mood especially after being stuck in a traffic jam! Our waiter Ramon was superior! Everything was fantastic, I highly recommend going there!

    A little tricky to find - lots of elevator banks to navigate and jumping between floors. but once at the restaurant/bar, it is a great place to enjoy Chicago views and excellent food. service is top notch professional in the restaurant. the ground floor attendants and security guards, not so much. enjoy!

    Complicated to find. Food is fine but nothing special. The view is high but looking mostly west over suburbs instead of at the lake or the interesting architecture of the city.

    It was a very good view and we thought food prices were decent. However, the bill came out to almost 40% higher than we predicted for two reasons. 1) the menu had out of date pricing 2) there was a 20% charge that our server made sure to emphasize was “not a tip” The food was fine. Would only return for drinks and the view.

    If I were to describe our meal at The Metropolitan in one word, it would be “disappointing”. I found the restaurant on Open Table, and was looking for something with a view of Chicago, something as a special treat, as we were passing through the Windy City on Amtrak and were at a nearby hotel. First off, as other have written on OT, getting there requires all sort of security checks, go through a metal scanner, and the elevator drops you off on the 66th floor even though the restaurant is on the 67th. Had to hunt around for stairs in what seemed to be a deserted building. When we approached the check in podium, we found no one there and we were looking at a nice bar. It wasn’t until we started looking around did we find the host. We wanted a window view table, but none were available. However, the real restaurant portion of the venue was closed for a private event, and we ended up being seated in the bar area, but could order from either the bar’s menu or the restaurant’s. The place wasn’t very busy, but there was one window that strangely had no table in front of it. When we asked about it, they grabbed another table and brought it over, so at least we had a view. Our entrees seemed to be lacking in seasoning, and overall, the food just wasn’t that impressive for the price - that was then tagged on with a 35% surcharge, that we had to look up to determine it was something to do with Covid. Ended up with probably priciest dinner for two I’ve ever had - and I was completely disappointed with it. We expected this place to have some element of elegance, although I didn’t bring a coat and tie, but I may have well come over with my Levis on as no one was dressed up, and that included the staff. Everything just felt off. And no, I would not return and would not recommend it.

    We were received so warmly by the staff, just there to enjoy our first trip to Chicago and celebrate one of our son's success getting a job straight out of college. Wonderful memorable experience. Wait-staff, the managers, all got involved they were tremendous and we did appreciate them. Wonderful young people.

    ***Beware of the 20% surcharge!*** I chose The Metropolitan for pre-Opera dining on this past Saturday evening. I’m usually generous with my ratings, and this restaurant has the potential of 5 stars in many areas. However, have two reasons for the 3 stars. 1st, it’s a challenge finding the restaurant so please allow an additional 10 minutes to get through the very detailed security and find the 67th floor. Also, please note- there’s not an option on the elevator for the 67th floor, I had to figure out you need to take the elevator to the 66th floor and take the stairs up to the 67th floor. The second issue I have is, after enjoying the wonderful ambience of the restaurant with a great view of the city, the excellent service provided by the server, and the food was great (I had the Lobster Bisque and the Amish Chicken). Then, comes the check with the unexpected 20% surcharge (and it states on the check that the surcharge doesn’t include tip or gratuity. I paid the check (with the surcharge) plus the tip without complaints that evening, but I was a little taken back.

    The MetropolitanResponded on March 21, 2022Good afternoon, Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted you joined us and enjoyed the service and food during your experience. We apologize that finding the club was a challenge and we are working on improving the directional instructions. The 20% is a service charge and does get distributed to the entire service team. All gratuities or tips are optional and given directly to the server. Please reach out if you wish to discuss further.

    So weird trying to find the restaurant. Amazing view for sure. Smaller menu I’m sure thanks to COVID. The ravioli was too rich. My biggest problem was the wine list by the glass did not have the price of the bottle included which was quite confusing.

    Upon entering the building, I ask the agent if there was a public restroom as I had a terrible need. The agent informed me that we had to wait to be escorted to the elevator. The agent took about 5 minutes to return as he was escorting another party to the elevator. If a patron has to wait that long especially after having driven 20 miles may be they need to reopen public restrooms on the 1st floor instead of traveling to the 67th where we had dinner.

    There was a 20% service charge and then you were expected to tip on top of that. It wouldn't have been a problem if it was clearer on the menu, but it was in extremely tiny font after the disclaimer about not eating undercooked meat. Also, normally a service charge includes the tip, so it was weird and confusing what the service charge was going towards, if not to our server (who was lovely).

    Probably the best view of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan. Imressively located on the 67th floor of the Wilson Tower inside a private club. Offers a lot of privacy and good spot for a business lunch or dinner. A fantastic wine list and wine presentation for wine lovers. Also very good for gatherings and family events.

    This was my first meal at The Metropolitan, as I had just moved to Chicago. Let me begin by saying the views and ambiance of the restaurant are unparalleled. As for the food- for appetizers/small plates, I had the calamari and the lobster bisque. The calamari was perfectly crunchy- no unwanted chewiness to it. And the two sauces it came with were both delicious. The lobster bisque was served in a way that makes it seem like you’re getting a spoonful of soup, but be patient- your server pours the rest of the soup in over the creme fraiche. And the bisque was perfectly seasoned, with a buttery and creamy texture. For my main course I had the crispy chicken sandwich with fermented pepper aioli. It was a bit too spicy for me but it was a great dish otherwise, just a question of spice tolerance. Overall, I would absolutely return.

    I absolutely enjoyed myself. The only negatives were; the restaurant was difficult to find and when I arrived they said there were no reservations. I told them I had one through open table they said they no longer do reservations through opentable but will still allow us in, I thought that was very unprofessional and I would have respected more if they would have gave me a call to let me know or even honor it anyway because the reservation was placed before they stopped using opentable.

    Menu did not include allergies - so I got chicken but it came with nuts I did not know about. Food was good but much more expensive than other restaurants but I guess you’re paying for the view, which was great!
