Wonderful as always!!
I understand that they are moving to a much larger location in the very near future. I will be dining there again as soon as they re-open. The food and the service were both outstanding and I highly recommend Metro 8 to anyone who enjoys a quality steak. Do yourself a favor and book reservations to Metro 8 as soon as you can........you will be glad that you did!!!!!!
Every dish I have tried on the menu has been delicious. This would include lobster ravioli, chicken, and filet with pepper corn sauce. The tiramisu is the best I have ever eaten.
The food was awesome, friendly staff. We will return. Yum yum!
Food was outstanding. Very nice place to eat for special occasions.
Very nice restaurant. It took a long time for our food to come out.
Great food! Great service! Restaurant was cute. The only complaint was the door chime
Going off every few seconds. Turn it off.
It was such a nice experience. You could tell they had made lots of accommodations for covid and service was impeccable. My husband had a filet; son had the strip and I had salmon. It was delicious and finished with the chocolate torte! Fabulous! Highly recommend!
The food was horrible
Lovely place. The food was great. Try the empanadas! Service was super.
Accidentally was late but the ladies working still treated us with the most outstanding service. The food was PHENOMENAL and they were knowledgeable about their menu and drinks. Beautiful atmosphere and professional setting. Will definitely return when in town.
Amazing food and service!!
New Years Eve prefix menu was delicious! Filet Mignon was tender one of the best I've had. Waitress was attentive and friendly.
The best service I have ever experienced. Food was amazing and perfectly cooked. The flavors leave you craving for more.
Will definitely be coming back in the near future.
We had such an enjoyable experience. Our server was attentive without hovering. The owner checked on us and we had a very pleasant discussion about food. We will be going back soon.
Very pleasant, it was me and my wife’s anniversary and we wanted somewhere to go plus we wanted lamb chops and I tell you they where good too! I recommend coming here. I will be back here very soon!!
Great meal. Food was delicious. Serving size was generous.
This was our first visit. Food was fantastic. The owners are lovely people. We really enjoyed ourselves. We'll be back...SOON!
We enjoyed celebration a birthday with great food and amazing service. I highly recommend Metro 8!!
Service was unfortunately subpar. There was no hostess for seating making our entrance slightly confusing. We ordered drinks and had a bad experience with cocktails. My Manhattan was served with a sundae cherry, not a Luxardo cherry, and the drink itself was watered down. I sent it back after one sip and was still charged for the drink. Our waiter was kind and friendly, but the manager behind the bar was clearly in a bad mood and affected the ambiance of the restaurant.
The food was delicious. Everything was cooked perfectly and was well seasoned. The food is extremely good value for money.
I would recommend for anyone coming here to either order wine by the bottle or beer for drinking and to enjoy the food
We were visiting Durham to tour Duke University and UNC. Metro 8 was found on a website. The steaks were very good. They were better than recent visits to Ruth's Chris but not quite Mastros. We had filet, Cowboy Rib Eye, and Strip steaks. All were cooked to our request. The wine list is very good.
Food was exceptional. Had a filet that was seasoned well and cooked to perfection. Chocolate soufflé did not disappoint. Highly recommend
A quiet mid week date for my wife and I at Metro 8, a new spot for us. Dinning room was appropriately social distance and we were seated in nice private corner table for 2. Our waitress was energetic and attentive. Empanadas and baked provolone apps were great. My wife ordered the filet which was amazing all around, I ordered 1/2 portion of the churrasco which was quite tasty but unfortunately I had to send it back because it was served luke warm along with my side of spinach. The staff was quick to remedy and we enjoyed our meal and wine.
We have been going to Metro 8 for two years now for special occasions and when we want a night out with friends. The food is awesome, the staff is very professional and friendly and the atmosphere is very pleasant, especially when we are able to eat outside on the covered patio. We would definitely recommend Metro 8 to everyone.
Everyone works hard to make sure you have a good dining experience. The steaks are excellent quality and the sides delicious. The room has a a good atmosphere also. Love this place.
Cassie And staff are always great. Amazing wine and consistently delicious food. Beautiful spot with outdoor heaters. Perfect during these Covid times
Everything was excellent. It was a great experience... as usual.
Churcasso was amazing.
Chocolate souffle was perfectly cooked.
We definitely found our new fancy dinner location 😊
This is my wife's favorite restaurant for a date night!
I have never been there before, the food was amazing, the service too, the only thing I would comment on is that they should dim the lights and play some music
Very nice evening! Very nice wife owner served us while husband owner prepared our meals in perfect timing. Parking easy and close by. Fun area. Great Churrasco skirt steak and Filet Mignon Au Poivre! Good wines at good prices. Great key lime pie and chocolate torte with decaf coffee were the perfect finish to a great dinner and getaway for a few hours. We do plan to return, hopefully with friends. Thank you Metro 8!
Great food, awesome service
Was really nice talking with our server and Cassie
We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Metro 8. The service was outstanding. They were out of a few items, but the server was able to provide alternates that were delicious. The meat was cooked perfectly. We enjoyed that it had great ambiance, but you were also as comfortable in dark jeans and a button down (my husband) as you were in something dressier (me). We both agreed it's one of our new favorites and going to be a date night go-to in the future.
Filet mignonette, churrasco, and pork chops were seasoned well and cooked to perfection. Dined inside with appropriate distancing and staff wear masks. Crepes for dessert were just ok; too sweet and too overfilled for our liking. Good overall though and we would return.
WOW! We are so glad we found this place! AMAZING steak! Medium rare - cooked to perfection!!! THANK YOU!
Very good and authentic food and we. We went a little bit late so they were rushing us a little bit. Overall we had a good time.
Such a great dinner. The food was excellent. We're basically bffs with the waitstaff now. Highly recommend.
How does one measure the quality of a classic steakhouse? Is it the cut of the meat? Is it the perfectly seared salt crust that delivers mouth-watering, fork-tender bliss with every bite? Yes. It is, but it also includes carefully made sides, like sauteed asparagus dressed with just the right amount of quality olive oil and freshly minced garlic. Add a piping hot roll with jalapeno cream cheese, and enjoy with a beautiful house Malbec, wafting its bouquet of violet, blackberry and mocha into your grateful and frequently masked nose. We didn't order dessert, but I would expect it would be absolutely as well-executed as everything else, even down to the lemon vinaigrette dressing my greens-as-garnish.
In theses times, one has to ask oneself, "Is dining out worth the risk?" I can't answer that question for anyone, but I can definitely say that Metro 8 is an incredible dining experience, even in these unusual circumstances. Yes, we felt safe -- the space is large, social distancing is enforced, and the service is mindful. We also felt good about supporting this locally owned restaurant that is still able to deliver brilliant food and a fine-dining experience, even while we all adjust to our reordered world. If you feel comfortable supporting local businesses like this beautiful restaurant run by Chef Francisco Pirillo and his wife, do try it!
I can’t get enough of this amazing place! The food is phenomenal, the service is exceptional. I will always recommend this place to everyone. Can’t wait to go back.
Birthday with the wife, great time, great food - no crowd
