Good combination of small plate and entrees, decent wine list. Very crowded place, great roof garden. Good beer scene. It's a good local place.

The food was very tasty and the service was quick and very friendly. To the latter point, my father-in-law tripped on his way to the restroom and staff were right there, wanting to be as helpful as possible. I hope to go there again on upcoming trips to Annapolis.

We chose this restaurant because of its Saturday night availability and location for a group of 10 people to go after a Navy football game. We were very pleased with the menu selections and enjoyed a delicious meal - salads, flatbreads, chicken, salmon, burgers, creme brûlée - everything was amazing! And the service was outstanding! We highly recommend!
Note - There is a parking garage right behind the restaurant which makes parking easy.

Chill scene, great acoustic vibe, gourmet menu that did not disappoint, relaxing atmosphere that upscale minus the pretentious... Cajun chicken sandwich was the best sandwich I’ve ever had... wife had seared scallops that were cooked to perfection... you can’t go wrong!

Based on the reviews we opted to go to the Cafe and were quite glad we did. A very nice young bar scene of professional class in Annapolis. The quality of the food for a cafe Bistro was excellent. The drinks were very good as well as the service.
Highly recommended

The waiter seemed as he was doing us a favor by taking our order. He clearly wanted to be somewhere else. Only 1 draft beer. All others were cans. The flatbread was terrible. It was tasteless and akin to microwave pizza.

My father and I went there on a Thursday evening. The noise level in the back room was FAR too loud and people were having exceptionally loud conversations. Way past the conversational tone. Our server was a low voice person. With both of those issues combatting each other my father had to ask her to repeat herself several times. The food was great. The noise level took away from completely enjoying the meal.

Chicken and biscuits with gravy is amazing, just be prepared to be full the rest of the day. The bottomless Bloody Mary's were weak on alcohol and not that interesting in flavor.

The happy hour menu rocks! Flat bread pizzas were all great (we ordered 3 different ones and couldn't finish them all). Cucumber drink special was refreshing, but weak (switched to wine). Staff was incredibly friendly and attentive, but not in our face all the time. We were dining at an earlier time for dinner, so we didn't see the live music or night crowd this time.

Best part was the rooftop bar setting, with comfy seating areas and excellent layout. We were close enough to the other patrons that we felt a part of the crowd, but not so close that conversations couldn't be kept private. Surprisingly, we couldn't even hear the street noise below! We are definitely going to be making Metropolitan Kitchen & Lounge a weekly thing!
