    The food was good but not great. I ordered the spinach dip and it was kind of bland. My lamb chops were cooked the right temperature, medium rare but they seemed tough. The service was excellent and the wine list was good. I especially liked the Malbec.

    The food was ok. The steak was average. My wife did not enjoy hers. The sweet potato fries were good. The Malbec she had was good. The desserts were sub par. They had a taste like the chocolate tort had been in the fridge too long. My wife’s soufflé tasted watery. Like if the chocolate was mixed with water.

    Awesome as always! We've eaten here repeatedly for years, including their former location. I have never had a steak that wasn't cooked perfectly as ordered. They also do the best and most consistent job cooking asparagus. Prices are reasonable enough for a "regular meal" but the service and food are deserving of a special occasion. Never pass up an opportunity to dine at Metro 8!

    This was our 2nd time here, it was almost 2 years ago that were were here last. We've been wanting to bring friends of our with us, but just couldn't get our schedules in synch. First off, they've moved, they have only been in their current location for a few months. It through me off when we first pulled up, because I knew I hadn't been to this spot before, but was sure we had eaten here. We walked in and were seated immediately and our drinks ordered. We looked over the menu but we were pretty sure we know what we were going to get....the 8oz Churrasco steak. It was soooo good last time we wanted to get it again My wife also got a Caesar salad and a loaded baked potato with her meal and I just got fries. He salad came out quickly, but she forgot to ask for no croutons. I tired a few of them and they were VERY good, not too hard and they had a really nice flavor to them. Our entree's came out and cooked to perfection. The steaks were tender and so delicious. The dipping sauce that comes with it adds to flavor but doesn't over power the taste. About half way through the meal we ordered a chocolate soufflé, they make fresh so you have to give it 15-20 minutes to cook. Neither of us could finish our meal, just too much, please we had a lot of freshly baked bread and whipped butter...you just can't eat one. Just about the time we finished out meal, out came the souffle'. It was very good and light, so even though we were full, we were still able to eat and enjoy. Try Metro 8, you won't be disappointed.

    After receiving a warm welcome from the owner we were led to a nice table near a wall which helps with any noise that may be around. Our waiter was very attentive and was always there just as we needed something. We did ease him when he came back and said they ran out of sweet tea. LOL. The mushroom soup was wonderful and could have had several bowls just for my dinner. Our steaks were all cooked to perfection as we had requested. We didn't have dessert this time. Small parking lot but still easier to find parking then at their old location.

    Explanation of the menu, wine specials differed by multiple servers. It appeared that the serving staff was inexperienced on how we were served which is the responsibility of management to train them. Font size and type on the menu was not legible.

    We went for a birthday celebration, just 2of us. The service was very attentive and helpful. Most of the wait staff stopped by to wish happy birthday. The steaks were awesome. They do have a number of other choices besides steak. The cocktails were yummy to. I thought the price was reasonable considering what we ordered.

    We dined here before a show at DPAC. Appetizers were creative and tasty. (No crab stuffed appetizers were available, which was a disappointment as our reservation was just as they opened for the evening.) Churasco was very delicious. Filet was tender but Au Poive sauce did lack flavor. Service by Shane was on point throughout. Would definitely recommend.

    The waitress must’ve been in a terrible mood because she was really unfriendly the entire time and acted like she was inconvenienced by showing up to work. The tapas and soup were delicious. The porcini fettuccine and steak that my friends had looked very good. I ordered grilled chicken and it was extremely bland, pounded thin with only salt and pepper. Bread was store bought rolls.

    This establishment is fantastic. Everything was amazing. The filet was the best I’ve ever had. Better than anything I’ve ever had at the Angus Barn. The mushroom soup is to die for! Drinks and service was phenomenal. Quaint and quiet place perfect for date night.

    The Churrasko steak was excellent. Chimichiurra sauce was phenomenal and steak was done perfectly. Server was great and very attentive to our needs. Only criticism is they could do a much better job with the wine list. If you are a serious wine drinker I would ask if they have a corkage fee and bring your own. I will do that the next time. Overall would definitely recommend it.
