The restaurant has a beautiful ambiance, accompanied by friendly service & excellent food.
Every dish was delicious. The service was excellent and we all enjoyed the dinner very much.
Excellent food, lovely atmosphere & great service! Menu was diverse with so many good choices it was hard to decide what to order. We will return so that we can try different items!
Food and staff were wonderful. Moderately priced. Great value.
Meta, formerly Sole, is a friendly, well-run restaurant and bar. The food is fabulous. We particularly love the veal chop. It's the best we have ever had! The don't do substitutions. They are as accommodating as possible in this busy place. Reservations are a must. We never had to wait more than a few minutes when we arrived on time. Parking can be a bit tricky. It has always been worth the drive . We love Meta.
Thoroughly enjoyed the ambience had a wonderful time with my girlfriend on two dates that we went there for Valentine's Day had wonderful menu
a great neighborhood restaurant...good food, service and people.
Everything was great, the food was excellent as was the service. Would definitely recommend as well as come back for dinner and drinks myself.
META NEVER FAILS!! This place is my absolute go to. The food is outstanding every time. Get the veal sole for an absolute show stopper of a meal that will leave your taste buds going nuts and your belly going crazy! Highly recommend Meta for an occasion.
Previously known as Sole, Meta has redesigned the dining area and updated the menu, which was a nice menu previously. The food is as good as it always was, the service is excellent and the new dining area is refreshing. The specials are all fresh and the updated menu has a lot of nice surprises. For the money it's one of the better values in the area and always a nice dinner.
The old "Sole". Newly renovated interior-looks really nice and has a warmer feel. Food still delicious and not insanely expensive.
Food was quite good and we;; presented. Portions were smaller than they used to be. Baked clams was excellent and love the tuscan fries.
What a great evening my friend and I had. The service was excellent and the food was packed with flavor and love . The Manager came by the table and made sure we were having a great time. Our server was very helpful and informative . The ambiance is laid back and cozy . A wish they had more vegan options but they had enough vegetarian options which was great as well .
Fabulous service and great food. A lot of great options.
The food is always exceptional. Excellent service. Great local neighborhood restaurant.
Great local restaurant. The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly,
It's funny that you ask. I have been going to Sole for years. I order the same dish Chicken Parm Ravioli. When I got my dish this time after waiting almost 45 min it was on the cool side but I decided not to say anything. - Also upon eating my food I found a small piece of metal. Looked like the flip part to open a can of sauce or something. I didn't mention anything because I knew my kids would never continue eating there food. I wasnt gonna say anything until I received this email. I have always enjoyed the food but not this time.
Very disappointed when the busboy threw away my veal chop when I had only eaten a quarter of .
The waitress was lovely and took it off the bill but I really was looking forward to eating it another night.
The busboy didn't have any remorse and I felt he should have really made sure if I wanted it boxed or not.
In addition, it was my birthday celebration and thought the owner should have been informed.
Always reliably delicious Veal Chop and penne with chicken and sun dried tomatoes
Although crowded night, service was great. Food came at a reasonable amount of time and hot. Took our reservations on time. Really enjoyed the food. Definitely would recommend.
Overall really nice
Great place great food. Service was great. Nothing bad to say!
Great food, service and reasonably priced. Great food specials.
2nd time here and definitely not our last. Food is excellent. Servers are pleasant and not on top of you, but around.
Always have a great meal there. The veal chop is #1 in our book.
Always excellent. Actually keeps getting better and better
The service was friendly and attentive. The meal was delicious, food was hot and well presented.
My wife and I come to Meta frequently and every time is better then the next. The veal sole is still my favorite dish and it’s hard not to get along with the chicken parm raviolis. The owner is always there which is nice and he checks on every table.
This has to be one of my favorite restaurants in Oceanside and one of my favorite Italian restaurants on Long Island.
Excellent service. Food very reasonably priced and very good.
We needed to do some cheering up of a friend and what better than a great meal and conversation to do just that. It was our first time going to Meta and will definitely not be our last. Everything was very good but the Gnocchi was over the top! I expected the typical lead weights but this was light and fluffy and sheer bliss! Portions are large and meant to be taken home.
Our old standard is now our new go to.
Did not have our reservation tight seating right at kitchen, food was good waitress very nice
We all enjoyed our meal very much - we were seated immediately, waitress was very helpful with our questions and we never felt rushed.
Great meal...no complaints! Love good local
The power surge was so disturbing it was continuous the air temp was off it was warm and uncomfortable
Six family members had an excellent dinner at Meta recently. We shared Calamari, Rice Balls, Salad and soup. All delicious . Entrees included lightly fried shrimp on a bed of garlic spinach with a Buerre Blanc sauce. Mixed sautéed peppers over fresh halibut , chicken parm ravioli and short ribs were all great. Desserts were also good.
I found this visit to be average. Chicken parm a little chewy. Wasn't able to use a promotion. Did nothing for special occasion. Wouldn't seat us until everyone arrived. Will try again before recommending.
Excellent food and service
This is the second time we ate at Meta since it changed names from Soleil. This time when we went we had gift certicates from Soleil and Meta honored them. The food is excellent. My favorite appetizer is the eggplant meatballs. Our waitress was so nice and helpful with menu. Unfortunately I don't know her name. The owner (I think he was the owner) stopped at the table to see if everything was ok. Very nice staff and would definitely recommend this restaurant.
The former Sole has reopened! Can't say that I really saw any difference, but maybe that's a good thing; liked the old menu, and didn't want to say good-bye to some old favorites like Caesar salad in an asiago cup and Nana's Meatballs. This time I tried the salad special (red leaf lettuce with mango, walnuts, goat cheese and a blood orange vinaigrette) and Pop Pop's Pasta (dared to try pine nut and raisin meatballs, which were delicious). Sadly, we were much to full for dessert or even cappuccino, which I remember being quite good last time. Maybe it was the second basket of bread our most friendly and helpful waiter brought?
A nice evening out. Not the prettiest dining room -- not where I'd take a date or go for quiet conversation -- but excellent food and a charming staff.
Terrific .....Terrific.....Terrific,,,,,,Terrific.....Terrific.........Terrific........Terrific.....get it Terrific
