We had the veal chop and rockfish both outstanding!

Service from manager to busboys all very professional
the food was delicous and the service was very good -Pete was very attentive and professional - will continue to visit Meta - always enjoyable and well priced
We Loved the food! Our waiter was a bit rude and short tempered with us but besides that I was extremely happy with my experience here and I will be returning :-D
Excellent food and service!
Food was outstanding as usual. Outdoor tables were socially distant from each other. Wait staff were friendly and professional . Overall experience was excellent. I highly recommend Meta for the wonderful food and outdoor seating!
A wonderful dinner at a new find. I had been to Sole many years ago it was always good. Now Meta has taken it's place. The environment was extremely safe and comfortable. Great outdoor dining, but we sat inside. Very delicious baked clam appetizer followed by braised short ribs! Good wines as well. Worth the trip!
Meta is my favorite. Jackie makes sure I get a good table and then I am home free. The food is consistently great and everyone I bring with me becomes a loyal customer.
A+ restaurant. Friendly atmosphere, great flavorful food. We loved it....
Food was great but lights SO bright and kitchen door left open which you can see from the dining area we sat in.
Considering that we are in the middle of this pandemic time everything was handled very well. We were seated outdoors. Food was delicious. Definitely we'll return.
Great food, outstanding service - always a pleasure.
Once again always fabulous 🥂. We’ve been dining here for over 20 years back to the days it was Sole. Service is outstanding, food is GREAT. Sitting outside curbside is refreshing. It’s wonderful how after being on lockdown for so long we can finally dine with our restaurant families 😷❤️😷❤️
Meta is one of the best restaurants in the area. They have a nice setup for outdoor dining and the only thing that can slow them down is weather. Food and service were excellent!
Service was great and food was delicious as always - good value - great meal
My first time here. All over excellent! Definitely going back
Tough to get the noisy motorcycles going by, but that’s what you can expect weekdays at the end of the work day.
Great location whether indoors or out. Food is always on point.
Rice balls, bag of "donuts", Caesar salad, pappardelle--old school, hearty, absolutely delicious!
Took our grandkids for dinner, first time and they loved it. Nothing negative to say. 😊
The food was amazing, presentation amazing, service amazing covid protacal amazing
Excellent home style Italian food. We sat outside and they did their best to create a nice atmosphere, but it’s hard when the restaurant is on the corner of a busy street. I’m sure it’s a lot nicer inside. Food and service were excellent. I had their special no noodle lasagna and it was outstanding. My husband had the chicken Parmesan and whike many places pound the cutlets and bread them heavily, they had a large juicy cutlet breaded to perfection in a delicious red sauce.
Delicious meal. Good service. Followed social distancing.
Food was delicious! And they did a good job with out side dining.
Will definitely go back.
Delicious as always, excellent food and service. It’s our favorite place.
I Have Never Ever Been Disappointed With The Food at Meta ! Every Time Always Delicious ! OH And The Dessert - Ta Die For !
Meta is a favorite of ours and we have been eating here for years, it never disappoints!!
Great food, wonderful service. Always enjoyable.
Easy outside dining. Courteous service. Mindful of COVID protocols. Delicious food. Great selections
Food and service are always good. Love Nana’s Ragu!
Service was extremely slow. I took a while to get our order in . My husband ordered a second drink and it took quite a while to come and the waiter said better late than never. The food was ok. We had the burrata and baked clams which were very good and tried the chicken parm ravioli which wad just ok. We go out often and this was definitely not a contender.
They are family, they take care of your needs, and when its not right, they make it right. Much appreciated. We love you back!!!
A nice family dinner was enjoyed by 6 of us. Attentive staff, food well prepared and layout of dinning room was comfortable for these trying times.
We have been coming to this restaurant since it was Sole. We love the food, staff and ambience.
A restaurant that is managing the “ new normal” with professionalism and clarity. Social distancing is nicely handled, rules of the road are clear and fair.
Oh.., the food ?
Amazing as always.
As usual the food is always outstanding here. Never had a complaint yet and I've been going here for years.
Food was fantastic, service was attentive. We sat outside which was so nice to do with the beautiful weather. They created such a beautiful ambiance, even if it is on the edge of Oceanside Road.
I’ve been going to Meta for over 20 years (used to be Sole) we’ve been dining there for this amount of time because it’s always been fabulous. Never a bad dining experience. Service is impeccable, staff is great and welcoming and I feel safe going there during the current state of Covid. Eat up people those hard working restaurant people need us 😷
Enjoyed a delicious dinner.
