Metzger Bar and Butchery Ratings and Reviews
I was really pleasantly surprised that there were a lot of options favoring those who prefer lesser amounts of meat. The meat that we did eat is really flavorful with interesting ingredient combinations. I felt I had a delicious healthy meal. Our waitress was wonderful. There was a runner though who wiped glasses a lot at the bar- she was less inclined to be helpful and When she carried our plate to the table, her fingertips were inside the bowl, instead of outside or underneath the plate! Despite that, I would definitely return to this restaurant. With so many choices abound, that is indeed a complement !
Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable waitstaff. Fabulous drinks and wonderful selection of wine. The highlight was the food! An amazing combination of ingredients and flavors. We had a wide variety of dishes including vegetarian, pork, fish and chicken! All so delicious! We are so happy and lucky to have this culinary gem in Richmond!
Quaint little place with a great atmosphere and creative menu. Only things I felt were off were the lighting and the menu. The lighting is a little dim, which normally would be fine, but being that the menu is in such small print and is printed so light it was damn near impossible to read. But excellent beer selection to compliment the menu and the fact that they even have underberg went a long way for me.
Terrific’s neighborhood restaurant with an updated German menu. Has a pleasing combination of creative modern takes along with some Teutonic classics Like schnitzel. Really notable for an outstanding collection of German beer with very knowledgeable wait staff who can recommend something new and/or pair with your food. The craft cocktails looked great as well although we did not have liver capacity to try any.
Metzgers consistently offers up some of the best meals in not just Richmond but the Mid-Atlantic region. For a German/Austrian inspired restaurant, their meals are creative, modern and unlike anything you'll find in RVA (or Munich!). Highly recommend being sure that your party orders different dishes and shares bites from each plate. This continues to be one of my family's favorites and never disappoints.
Too bad they got rid of the date night special on Wednesday. New three-course weekday menu isn't nearly as good a value. Food is great as always, but unfortunately will be coming here significantly less now : ( ...Plenty of other places to have a great meal during the week for a much more reasonable price.
Neighborhood bar feel, loud and kitchen table ambience.
Food was well done . The salmon had a good mix of texture and flavors. The chestnut soup was perfect for a good fall evening and the escarole salad was dressed perfectly. Quite loud , the menu was difficult to see but a nice evening!
Tried Metzger for the first time during Richmond Restaurant Week. Our meals were very tasty for the most part. The Apple kuchen, one of three RRW dessert options, was dry and nearly flavorless. Service was friendly and efficient. Other than the disappointing dessert, we enjoyed a very fine meal at Metzger.
Off night for Metzger. Each course was just not on point. The meal was just ok, not good. Started with the soup, which was not hot, missing flavor, a little cinnamon would have helped. The main course, the beans were not cooked enough, still more hard not tender. The dessert, the oatmeal cookie was hard as a rock, totally over cooked. The service was fantastic. The food was a disappointment.
Metzger is a place we've been wanting to try and we were delighted with our dinner. The ambience is casually elegant, not stuffy, with dark wood and white tile and while the room is not large we were quite comfortable and did not feel at all crowded. Wines by the glass were few but well chosen. (I'm sure the beer menu is stellar, but wine is our preference.) Beet pierogi were a delicious starter, as was an escarole salad. A soup was served lukewarm, but still delicious. Metzger is known for its chicken schnitzel and it did not disappoint. Crisp but light, mustardy and very tender. Fluke with pistachios and figs was a wonderful blend of flavor and texture. Apple Kuchen for dessert was slightly dry, but still quite good. Our server was knowledgeable and kept the evening moving at a perfect pace. We will definitely be back: I can't wait to work my way through the rest of the menu!
Is heard so much but never been. It's a pretty intimate setting. Everything was fantastic. Our server Krystle was so patient and well informed. She was so over the top it's like she could read my mind! I never had to ask for anything. The liver mousse was delightful. So savory ave fluffy. Great cheese options toI. She even brought us extra crustinis for our appetizer plate without us even asking. It seemed like each of the staff attended our table at least once. The food was incredible. The pork chop was HUGE. I'm pretty sure all the pasta was made in house because the spaetzle was the best I ever had and the gnocchi was top tier (possibly cooked in bacon fat?). The halibut was perfectly moist and I've never had cooked figs before but I could die happy tonight after that meal. Finished off with a dessert wine I've never had before. They didn't have any eiswein so I got the steindorfer instead, recommended by Krystle and it's just what I needed. Definitely going to spread the good word. Thanks for a solid meal
I wanted so badly to like this place. Oysters were ok, the Bonne Bouche cheese was amazing!!! The chicken schnitzel was fair but there wasn't enough mustard so it was dry and the fennel salad wasn't dressed so it didn't really add much. The duck was cut in large chunks and served with a grilled head of the most bitter radicchio I've ever tasted. They were out of bread, two appetizers, two entrees, and two desserts. The menu is pretty small so this was a large portion of it that was 86'ed. I won't be back and it makes me sad because again, I REALLY wanted to like it.
Metzger's never fails to impress! This is one of my favorite restaurants, so I have been here many times, but it was my boyfriends first time here. He was super impressed with his schnitzel and the Mette. I had the stuffed squid, which was equally amazing! We already said we are coming here again for our next big date night :)
