We went to Metro Kitchen and Lounge for Fathers' Day and son's (16 yrs) birthday. We decided on this place from reviews and location as we were dropping of for a summer camp in Annapolis. The place was energetic and we sat in the street facing bar area. It is very comfortable and bright. We had attentive service. We all liked our food - biscuits and gravy, burgers, grilled cheese, brussel sprouts - and we shared a plate of french toast as a dessert. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone open to happiness and good food. We'd go often if we lived close.
Father’s Day! It was a bit slow and very noisy but nothing worthy of losing a star. We will return!
The Metropolitan is a great spo for a date night or get together with friends!
What an experience! It was our first time at Metropolitan and will not be our last. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who sat us in a booth off to the side away from the bar area. Our server, Amanda, gave excellent recommendations on dishes to order. We started with the cauliflower and hummus. My mom had the fig and goat cheese flatbread and I had their taco special. My dad ordered the shrimp and grits and it did not disappoint! The manager was also very nice. They acknowledged my mom’s birthday with a candle in the dessert. Metropolitan, we will be back!
Fun spot, great service.
Went to Metropolitan before a show at Annapolis Shakespeare Theater (only 5 minutes away). My wife had shrimp and I had short ribs. Both were very tasty were delivered in reasonable time. My dish came with asparagus and corn. The corn was almost no existent so my value rating was 4 and not 5. But overall a good experience. Would go back.
We were in town for my nephew's US Naval Academy graduation. I reserved a table for 10, updated to 13 and when we arrived it was set for 10. They quickly corrected the matter and were able to put all of us together. The experience was great overall- a good location with good food, including delicious apps- brussel sprouts, homemade hummus and a charcuterie plate. The entire group enjoyed the food- a mixture of burgers, fish, shrimp and grits and the little kids liked their plates, too. I would go again.
We wanted to stay local and the Metropolitan was just the right answer. My family and I were quickly seated and Peter our server promptly took care of us. Peter was very friendly, knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed their food. Highly recommend the Metropolitan, thank you.
Food was truly delicious! Nice small place with great service from their staff. Everyone was friendly and looked happy to be there which is rare. Will return again and again.
Came for brunch on Mother’s Day. Table was sticky. Water glasses were dirty. Food tasted ok, except for the fact that it all arrived to the table cold. Not just “not hot” but actually cold, which is pretty annoying considering the place was not busy.
Mother’s Day meal - food was cold, bacon was not cooked, coffee tasted old. Server seemed overwhelmed. It looked like she had tables all over the restaurant instead of a designated section, which improves a server’s ability to be attentive and effective. She gave good recommendations. Didn’t seem like servers were supporting each other enough - not running eachother’s food if they had a moment to spare (to keep it from getting cold). They were just standing around and laughing if they had nothing to do for their own tables. The bathrooms were dirty - there was toilet paper and trash all over the place (at least in the ladies restroom). Seems like this is more of a dinner place than a brunch place maybe.
One of the best brunches in Annapolis. Great staff, great owners.
We were visiting from out of town and found this place on Open Table. We shared 3 plates: rockfish lettuce wraps, sirloin & polenta and the cheeseboard. They were all very tasty. Plus the bread pudding! I thought the pricing was very fair. All in all a nice evening; rain prevented us from going to the rooftop bar. It was a bit noisy in the room but may have been due to the other parties vs. acoustics of the place. Service was okay; not bad but definitely could use a little more polish.
I like the menu at this restaurant with many small plate to more substantial choices. The food was good, not great. Service was attentive. Good wine selection.
Always heard great things about Metropolitan. We went for a Sunday Brunch overall everything was great. The only thing I wasn’t fond of was the noise level in the dinning area near the bar. The music was so loud you couldn’t hear the person across from the table. Loved the food and service, would recommend giving it a try.
The Metropolitan always has excellent service and a great menu!
Loved the atmosphere at the Metropolitan, very casual and friendly.
The lamb burgers were amazing. Good beer selection
WOuld have given more stars but the staff seemed more occupied with each other than the customers
Food and service was excellent
My little cousin attends the Naval Academy, where I hear the food is awful. So, I treated both he and one of his cadet buddies to a late lunch at Metro. The place was nearly empty on a Saturday at 5pm. I tried to make reservations for 8pm, but there were no tables available. So, I guess it gets more packed after 6pm.
It has a diverse clientele, the wait staff is friendly, and the menu was pretty tasty. The cocktail I tasted was not strong, but it was pretty good.
Usually have great experiences at Metro (heck, we had our rehearsal dinner there), but this time not so much. The 1st floor was only half full - plenty of empty tables - but we were made to wait for a table, even though we were exactly on time with our reservation time. Our server was a bit brusque, which is kind of par for the course at Metro, but she took only half our table's drink orders before turning and walking away. Very odd. Then (again lots of empty tables), twice she tried to pick up our check before we had a chance to look at the bill. Food fantastic as usual though. Sad to give this a less than stellar review. Hoping it was just a series of unfortunate events and bad service and that next time we'll be back to normal.
The Food and Service were Amazing!!!!
This place is a win win all around. Great food, drinks, music, staff, location, value and taste.
Highly suggest them! You won't be disappointed!
Great food and great service. Great value as well.
We had an early dinner reservation and the restaurant was pretty much empty. They seated us in front of a door that opened up to the upstairs for happy hour gathering. Throughout our dinner conversation, we had people passing by us, door opening and noise level high. In addition, the server left us without ever coming by to check up on us. We had to get up to locate server for question and concern. Was disappointed in the ambiance, food was ok not anything to brag about.
Brittany was our server and was AMAZING! I come to Metro frequently and brought my out of town friends here for Sunday brunch... did not disappoint! This place is an Annapolis gem!
Food was good. Menu wasn't expansive for breakfast, but there were enough options.
Food was surprisingly good for such a casual setting. The atmosphere was as much bar as it was restaurant.
It was a slow night so we got a lot of attention. Loved the music they played. Very nostalgic. Mix of the decades.
Food was really good. We had the pan roasted rockfish, fig and goat cheese flatbread and a small winter salad which was enough to split. All were very tasty. Also had the maple bread pudding for dessert. Yum! We were stuffed!
I would definitely go back if I was looking for something casual.
Excellent brunch menu and all food was amazing! A little loud for an Easter brunch (our larger group had to be seated by the bar) but all left happy!
Food was cold, even the coffee was cold. Went here for Easter Brunch and it was not very good.
Took the parents for brunch. We were next to a rowdy bunch. They were a little to loud and disrespectful of their conversation. My three year old niece was with us. A few belligerent comments, a girl who kept singing, obnoxious loud laughing. Besides that it could of been a wonderful brunch. Was just hard to hear anyone talk over their excitement.
They have great happy hour options, and those are available throughout the restaurant, not just at the bar. There were four of us and while the food overall was fantastic and a good value, the bread pudding it was agreed, was the best any of us had ever eaten. One of the owners introduced himself, came to our table, asked how we were doing showing real good walk around management style. I had been there before in warmer weather to the top deac, and the view is fantastic. Only issue, is that parking is tight and the next door garage is the best option, after hours, a reasonable 5 bucks.
Overall I had a great experience. Great food, fun and friendly service staff. It was a bit noisy but that is expected due to the size and layout ...but didn’t really bother me too much. I highly recommend going to Metropolitan.
Awesome experience. Quick service, amazing food, and super nice staff. I can’t wait to go back soon.
Great cocktails and they have a roof top that is vibrant and fun.
Restaurants in Annapolis with several vegan/vegetarian options outside of the typical bean burger and pasta prima vera standbies are few and far between. Metropolitan's menu has a wide selection for all food preferences. Laid back, casual atmosphere.
Nice surprise of vegetarian options! Great food and service!
I came in with a large group for lunch, and we were one of 3. The staff couldn't have been any nicer or accommodating to us, even with the baby within our midst. I couldn't make up my mind with the food and I appreciated the waitress's enthusiastic suggestions ( I chose the avocado toast). We were all surprised by how good the food was. Wonderfully fresh, well executed and crave-worthy.
We were seated in the first room where the bar is and it got quite loud, but not exactly surprising given Sunday brunch celebrations and their all-you-can-drink mimosa/bloody Mary options. Otherwise, it's a really good place to go and I look forward to going again.
