The place is known for its Burnt Carrot Salad... For the second time in as many visits we had to send it back as it came WITHOUT any avacado. Both times our out of town guest was disappointed. How can you mess with your signature dish! Serve was slow as well.
Probably our favorite restaurant in Cincy! Unique menu, excellent service, and enjoyable atmosphere in a great location. They made our anniversary night extra special!
We came for Easter Brunch and had an enjoyable meal. The restaurant is pleasing and I always enjoy viewing the artwork in the lobby. I did not, however, love my meal. I had the breakfast burrito and found it greasy. Others in the group had salmon toast and the burger. Everything was a bit greasy. We ordered pop tarts that were very good. I keep coming back for the ambiance but keep hoping to enjoy the food just a little more.
It was the first time we had eaten at the Metropole and we were very pleased with our dining experience. David, our waiter, was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We had appetizers, drinks, and the main courses (I highly recommend the salmon). Overall a wonderful meal; we'll definitely return!
We have eaten here before. This was the first time with the new head chef. Overall, it was just ok. The cheese on the charcuterie was dry and tasteless, but the condiments were very good. We both had the mushroom gravy over toast for a vegetarian dinner. The server would do well to let you know this is a HUGE piece of bread ( think large ribeye size) with mushrooms, cheese and gravy on it. While it tasted good, it would be better served as a shareable appetizer by paring down the size. No one could eat all the bread and it became redundant to eat it all. I’m not saying it was a bad meal, it just wasn’t good overall.
Always a treat to share a meal at Metropole!
Inventive and satiating food to fulfill a variety of tastes. The burnt carrot salad is an adventure in food wonderland that should be tried.
Excellent food and services
I had high hopes after enjoying a delicious pre dinner cocktail- the Woo girl cocktail was delicious. Hopes were still high when I got my kale salad. It was tasty. The Coppa steak had much more fat than meat, a pretty ridiculous amount of fat. The flavor was good, but not much of it was edible. And then I found a hair in my food. I didn’t expect that at a restaurant of this caliber, but I guess it can happen anywhere. Management was nice and comped my dinner for that. They offered me another entree but we had time constraints and had to leave for a show. We still managed to spend a lot of money.
The restaurant was slightly crowded and quite noisy. Not a place for an intimate quiet dinner. Acoustics seem to increase the noise.
This was a last minute date dinner for my wife and I. Neither had been before but are always looking for new places to check out. With very little expectations purely, because of ignorance, we arrived. Greeted by a greasy haired host in jeans and a t-shirt, and sat by an equally represented hostess.
Our server, Jerrod, was the high point of the evening. He was very well presented and knowledgeable.
Food was nothing to brag about. My wife liked her salad the best, and nothing was extraordinary from my selection.
The atmosphere was catchy, but I was surprised by the 'hipster' quality...
We had fun inspite of not being 'in love' with Metropole, but probably won't be back.
Hello Adam, I am sorry that your recent visit to us was not a great first impression. Happy to hear that Jeremy took great care of you but the greeting at door, food and service should have combined to make a memorable evening. We would love to have you back as our guests so you can experience Metropole as we hoped you would have.

I loved the atmosphere and the food quality was perfect. Our server was as sweet
We had a show to catch and the server was very rude and said some rather offensive comments. I ordered the salmon and he said I had to switch to the rainbow trout bc it was faster. I took his suggestion and the meal was horrible. It tasted so fishy that my stomach still churns at the thought of it. I would have rather waited for the salmon. I clearly made a bad choice listening to him. I had eaten hear before with a very pleasant experience so I was disappointed that I did not have that on this occasion.
Great food, excellent service. The art exhibits next door are very nice. Three of us had dinner on a Wednesday night -- there were a lot of diners there. The noise level was very high and we couldn't converse well. They moved us to a more quiet place (very much appreciated) but even there the noise level was high. Lots of hard surfaces in the restaurant off from which the sound reverberates.
Service was great food was bland nothing special
The food is not good
The food was delicious and service was excellent! The lemon flavored cotton candy that accompanied our bill was a delightful surprise.
Will definitely go back.
Really enjoyed the service and food for Sunday Brunch. We wanted something different and unique for my family as we were celebrating two birthdays. The service is wonderful. Our waiter was on top of it and did a brilliant job, bring clean cutlery and drinks. The food is also really good. While it isn’t a ‘serve yourself’ brunch, there is a great selection of choices from the menu.
All great! Perfect event.
Great food and service. Prices in line with 3-4 star restaurant. Affordable wine choices. Metropole candy bar is a must!
The food and the selection on the menu was excellent. Our server, Alima, was perfect!
Great place to dine before a show . Service , food and ambiance were all outstanding . Highly recommend .
Enjoyed our meal, tasty, a bit on the pricey side for soup, salad.
Food was superb, ambiance was wonderful, and our waiter Dave was awesome! Enormous wine, beer, and bourbon choices.
The menu is a little limited but they have a great formula there. Service was very good and food was excellent. My wife LOVED the monkfish and I really enjoyed the salmon. We went before a show at the Aronoff and finished in plenty of time. Metropole will remain one of our choices for dinner before a show.
The tables are too close together, there was no privacy in our conversation! The food was okay but one of the entrees wasn't hot & had to be sent back to be reheated. It was our Anniversary & we told them that when we made the reservations but nothing special was said or done & we saw others getting a cupcake with candle. Not the best experience.
Amazing food, wonderful service and superb atmosphere will definitely bring us back!
Price to value ratio off—I mean it was good but certainly not excellent and the overall experience was a tad lackluster
service was excellent, food was very gd and the ppl were very inviting.
Fantastic meal, great service, an overall outstanding experience.
We arrived early and they seated us before our reservation time which was greatly appreciated. Jeremy was our awesome server and he made great recommendations and made sure we were done in time for the theatre. Food was excellent as always.
Thank you so much for the great review! We're happy we could accommodate you before your reservation time and that you made it out in time for the theater. We'll definitely relay your compliment to Jeremy. We look forward to your return visit! Emily Magon, Restaurant Manager email@example.com m W 513-578-6660 D 513-578-6680
Wait staff very knowledgeable, courteous and attentive without hovering.
Some of the food was good, but the pork chop was tough and not very flavorful. Most everything has a smokey flavor, even the cocktails, and that is not appealing to everyone. The service however was very good.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. I am disappointed that we missed the mark on the pork chop, I will share this with our Chef. I'm happy to hear the service was great & an overall good experience. I hope you come back soon to give us an opportunity to redeem ourselves.

This was my second business dinner with a group of five people, and there was something on the menu for everyone in two very diverse groups with different dietary preferences/ needs. Service was excellent and all the food was delicious, especially the brussel sprouts and Jerusalem artichokes.
Outstanding service and food. We have never had a bad meal here.
We're so happy you've always enjoyed your dining experience with us. Thank you for the review, we can't wait for your return visit! Emily Magon, Restaurant Manager T 513-578-6660 D 513-578-6680
Great lunch special combo of soup, salad, sandwich priced at $12. Gourmet food on a working woman's budget.
Hello, Thank you so much for the review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed the Queen City Lunch, we do something new for that every week, we look forward to your return visit soon for another great meal. Emily Magon, Restaurant Manager W 513-578-6660 D 513-578-6680

Took my spouse and 3 children. Seated immediately, drinks and appetizers came out promptly. The main course were perfectly made. They had kids items that was not on menu, which two of my children ordered. Had dinner and had plenty of time to see the show at the Aranoff center .
Thank you for the 5 stars. I'm so glad you & your family enjoyed your dining experience and made it out in time for the theater. We look forward to your return visit! Emily Magon, Restaurant Manager W 513-578-6660 D 513-578-6680
This was my second visit and I was just as pleased as the first. I had two 11 year old boys with me for brunch and a performance of Hamilton (which they wanted to see). I ask them what was the best part of the day. Their response, 'the brunch at Metropole'. If you know anything about 11 year old boys, they don't typically like anything.
