The Metropolitan Ratings and Reviews
Superb meal and a great view. A table overlooking downtown Chicago at night, well prepared food, and an attentive and pleasant server made our evening special. The spinach and goat cheese salad and the roasted pear salad were both fresh and delicious. Our entrees, veal saltimbocca and tea brined pork chop were very well prepared. Definitely a restaurant to return to.
We celebrated a birthday. It was a nice evening that included the skydeck. They were thoughtful for the birthday celebration. They decorated the dessert plate and gave us a complimentary glass of champagne. The 20% percent surcharge which the menu stated covered the tip was a bit confusing. At the end of the dinner the waitress stated that the 20% tip did not come to her but was instead shared by the staff. I gave a little more for her but I thought that was a bit off-putting, isn't that the normal way tipping is done at a restaurant it is shared? I've never worked at a restaurant I only assumed. The waitress was a bit slow and not as attentive as I saw the other wait staff being with others. Overall it was a nice evening. The only complaint I really had was the location of our table it was in the middle of the floor away from the windows so we could not see the view, the only other tables in the middle of the floor where large parties set. We felt like we were on display. Everyone else in parties of two sat along the windows. There were tables available along the window but we were not offered them.
Our server Victor was truly great on this visit. My husband & I were visiting Chicago and I found the TripAdvisor deal for this restaurant. This was a great deal and was a special occasion, my birthday. Right off the bat, Victor asked us where we were from and if this was a special occasion. We had great interactions with him throughout the meal. I got the mustard crusted lamb chops with a mint brown gravy and my husband got the veal saltimbocca. Both were fantastic! For our dessert, he made the night very special for my birthday by adding a candle and special birthday message!
Tout simplement surfait, la cuisine n'est pas à la hauteur. L'endroit est propre et joli, mais toutes les tables ne proposent pas une vue imprenable sur Chicago. De plus, quand bien même nous ne sommes pas près d'une fenêtre, le manager aurait pu penser à laisser un espace pour profiter de la vue sans ennuyer les autres clients ... En synthèse, nous avons mangé et nous sommes partis sans profiter de l'endroit. l'addition est salée au regard de la qualité du repas. Je ne recommande pas cette table.
The Metropolitan Club was definitely worthy of a return visit since my last Chicago trip! Rare is the opportunity to find fine high rise dining in the sky. This experience is the pinnacle of my trip and is what made it most memorable. Salmon citronella is the choice of seafood cuisine. I would do this again if I'm ever back to the Windy City for another tour!
40th Anniversary celebration with romantic view overlooking Chicago from 67 floors above. Service was OK, but not worthy of the occasion. Food was good, but for the price should have been great. My wife had the salmon and I had the veal. Did have a private club feel and was not ever full for the duration of our meal on a Saturday night. I would recommend for a romantic special occasion for the view, but would go somewhere else for the perfect meal.
I surprised my good friend with dinner here for her birthday. Not only did she love eating here for her first time but I was also amazed throughout the entire evening. The food was excellent and the service was great. Overall it was one of the nicest dinner experiences that I have had and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Well worth the money.
I was excited to go to this Private Clubby place, but I was not impressed. The space was nice and the "experience" was good and the food was ok. Had the lobster ravioli and the seared scallops as an appetizer and they were great. If I ever went back, I would have them as a dinner. The filet for dinner was tender, but the strong smell of the smoked bacon when the plate was set down in front of me totally overpowered the steak. For the $200.00+ for 2 people, it was just ok. I would say for me that it was a one time experience...great date night or to take someone out you want to impress due to the clubs exclusivity. The servers were knowledgeable and personable.
We had the best experience with Victor as our waiter tonight. He was so sweet and had the best recommendations. I love personable waitstaff and he was so attentive and charismatic. It was my first time at the metropolitan club and I took my best friend for her birthday. They made it so special and perfect it was much appreciated. We will definitely be back.
This was one for the ages! An out of this world fine dining experience. Up high on the Willis Tower in Chicago. Yes quite a pricey meal to be done. Then again this something that is done on seldom occasion. In my case an adventure/sightseeing trip to the Windy City. If you come to Chicago be sure to put the Metropolitan Club in your bucket list of dining. You will be in for a great time!
Enjoyed a very nice dinner Saturday night. All 4 in our party loved their food! Wait staff was very cordial & helpful. We were late getting up there as our Uber driver let us out at the incorrect door & we didn't know we had to go thru security before getting on the elevator... Staff was very accommodating.
What a wonderful evening! Everything was perfect from the moment we walked in until the moment we left...including the security staff on the main level. I recommend the Metropolitan Club to anyone who wants something more special than the average restaurant. We are fortunate in Chicago to have so many choices for excellent dining -- the view from the 67th floor just adds that extra something.
It was our first night in Chicago and were looking forward to a nice evening with great food. We didn't realize there was a no jeans dress code even though we were dressed California evening dining style. However, the maitre said he would "make an exception for us" I was not impressed from the get go! We had a nice view. But the food was absolutely horrible and tasteless. Coming from California, we have a very sophisticated palette, we enjoy the finer food and very very disappointed. I would never recommend dining here for a special occasion. The only thing I would recommend is going to the top of the building for the incredible view.
The dining experience was amazing. It first started with the welcomed entrance from Amanda (she's amazing). The food was very good and the service was exceptional. The wine is great and so is the view (you get to view the city lights at night opposed to blackness of water at Signature Room). Overall - great dining experience and would do again.
We celebrated an 80th birthday here and had outstanding service and excellent food. The service was above and beyond in taking care of special dietary needs and helping celebrate the big occasion. The food was very good and the presentation was lovely. We had excellent wine and the view is outstanding.
