MET Back Bay
burrata / chili flake / 7 grain
The food was delicious. The atmosphere was great; the bar filled mostly with young professionals.
Brunch was amazing! Lots of options, very affordable. The ambiance was great for a nice Sunday brunch. Highly recommend!
Not good. Waitress never asked if we wanted drinks, failed to check on us during dinner. Food was average and my steak so tough to cut, decided to stop eating it. Too bad - great location and had good reviews. Sorry I canceled my alternate reservation.
Lunch was terrible!
I made a reservation here to have a business lunch with two business associates. When we arrived at the restaurant there was a sign up that said it was closed for renovation. At no point did anyone call us to notify us, or communicate with us otherwise. It was very embarrassing and very inconvenient my two associates and I stood out in the rain scratching our heads figure out “OK where do we go for lunch now?”
And OpenTable your point system sucks. It’s confusing makes no sense and you don’t give out rewards like you used to. The only reason why I use your app now is so that I can make reservations at the restaurants that I like to go to. But I’m finding that the prime times are never on your platform because good restaurants don’t have to be on OpenTable to sell seats during prime times.
THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS! WE WENT ALL THE WAY OVER THERE AFTER MAKING A RESERVATION THROUGH YOUR WEBSITE. WHY WASN'T THIS INDICATED PREVIOUSLY?
Open Table confirmed this reservation. When we arrived there was a sign on the door CLOSED. Not a good result.
We showed up to the restaurant for a reservation for my 21st birthday brunch for 10 people and it was completely closed with no warning. Ridiculous that no one would have told us that it was going to be closed because we spoke to people on the phone about the reservation multiple times.
The service was incredibly slow and the general experience disappointing. It took upwards of 25 minutes to receive our drinks. The order came out wrong and the waiters were completely understaffed. The wine for the meal did not arrive until after the entree was served and finished. People around us were getting up and leaving because waiters were not coming to their table. Overall we were very disappointed with our meal.
Wonderful staff all around, delicious food, beautiful decor.
Valentines date! Very friendly staff. Well sized menu, both food wise and drinks/wine. Priced accordingly. Would come again!
Music playlist was strange for occasion
Excellent food and service in a beautiful, sunny setting. Wonderful place for lunch with friends.
My team had a fun lunch there last week. Restaurant was very busy but everything went fairly smoothly.
The hostess was great and saved us a table by the window since it was my birthday. Service was a little slow, and the elevator did not work (had checked beforehand to see if they had an elevator for my Mom who doesn’t do stairs well).
Great food. Oysters where amazing. Burger was fantastic too. I see why it’s a 30 dollar burger. Steak tips for the win though! Amazingly good though.
Great meal and the service was outstanding
Always way too dark
I love the ambiance here - nice windows overlooking Newberry street but the food was awful. Chicken Caesar salad was so mediocre and the chicken was hard as a rock and not not fresh. Tuna sandwich tasted very fishy. Not a good experience unfortunately. They did reduce the bill for the chicken problem. Appreciated.
We received very friendly, attentive service.
I had the Bolognese. It was good. My friend had the massive burger. He seemed to enjoy it. Dining room is lovely.
Great experience here at Met... servers was knowledgeable and friendly and the food was fantastic and tasty!
We love The Met Back Bay and usually experience better. Food was just ok and service was slow so not one of our better dining experiences here.
Delicious brunch with views of Newbury Street.
Our server was really great and handled our larger party very well. The food, however, was not what we were expecting and definitely not worth the prices that we paid. Two of us ordered the corned beef hash and the root vegetables were undercooked, but the corned beef was overcooked and hard.
the food and service were great! I highly recommend building a custom bloody mary if you go for brunch!
I always enjoy this restaurant. Speed of service is impressive for lunch time and the service is great. The food is awesome.
Delicious food. We all had something different and our waitress was kind enough to make us aware of options available. Would definitely go again!
My boyfriend is An executive chef and we both put this in our top 5 burgers in the country. Beautifully cooked, amazing sauces that don’t overwhelm, outstanding presentation! Get the MET burger, I always will!
I have worked/lived in Back Bay for many years, but returned this week after several years since having lunch with you. The food was excellent; the service excellent; but it became almost impossibly loud with music and a full room of guests by 12:15 pm. Our conversation was very difficult to hear and we had to leave to talk elsewhere. I'm not certain I will return.

I live in Austin and frequent the Met when in town.
The only critique I have is that the Coconut ice box pie should be served closer to room temperature to enjoy the flavor. Only as it warmed up was it the enjoyable treat I . When served it was too old and lacked flavor.
3 out of 3 meals wow not good at all. Sorry, was so looking forward to going there and won't be back.
Glad to have gotten a last-minute reservation on a Saturday night! Service was good (nothing crazy but no complaints) & food was delicious & reasonably priced. would have loved bread or something to start but not a dealbreaker by any means -- would definitely return!
I dine at the Met frequently but food was sub par tonight, ordered the chicken parm for 2 and it was slightly tough and salty. Had to send a martini back, tasted very funky. Guacamole was good!
I’m here to save the rest of you from a wasted and overpriced evening. Went with grown son and husband for dinner. We live in NYC, a great restaurant town - but are frequently in Boston so I know there’s good food there - just not the MET. First, the noise level is intolerable. You cannot have a conversation. Tables and seating are cheap - just functional. The server rushed us from Minute 1. I watched and they were all doing that - trying to clear tables as fast as possible. You barely finish a course and the next one is on the table. The food is mediocre at best. Forgettable and dull. We all had different mains and they were just...average. Which would be fine if you were at Applebee’s. Oh and please don’t order the “winter salad”, a heaping bowl of large kale leaves with almost nothing else. It was inedible. My glass of Sancerre was priced like a good Sancerre - $16 - but was most likely a cheap white. On a positive note, the bread was warm. How anyone gives this place a good review is beyond me. Trust me - if you care about food or a “nice evening” out, keep looking. Shame on these owners for the rip off that is The MET
Open seating in bottom floor for Sunday brunch—all went very well with food just what we wanted.
Server was slow and forgot several items. Wine was served after the meal andonly after my husband left the table to find the server. The tuna and salmon tartare and the bolognese were good.
Good food, good service. Avocado toast did not have avocado in it, and ginger ale didn’t taste like it had ginger. Otherwise all good.
Lack luster not a recommendation for breakfast.
Very slow service. Were at the restaurant for just over two hours and had a salad, a pasta dish, and a desert drink.
