    Lunch was simple but delightful. Very few options. Service good and ambiance quiet and decor chic. Of course Marcus Samuelsson sitting there in full view helped. They really need some signs outside directing you up the stairs or around to the elevator a few yards away. Those stairs are enough to put a lot of people off who might want to try the place.

    Lovely experience. The food was wonderful. We tried the duck and the artic char. Presentation was well thought out. The space is great - unique design. It was not crazy noisy, which we appreciated as we could still have a conversation.

    While we enjoyed our time at the Metropolis, we found the menu extremely limited and the food a little rich in flavor. 2 of us had the lox which was on the salty side and 1 1 had the omelet which was extremely overpowered by the creme fraiche sauce. Excellent coffee, excellent service and a nice quiet brunch which is a quite rare in NYC. We would definitely come back to give it another try.

    Hi Meryl, Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts about your recent visit to Metropolis. We are glad you enjoyed the excellent ambiance, service, and coffee during your brunch experience. We never wanted you to leave us with an uneven impression; we appreciate your honest feedback and apologize for any disappointment. We wish you would have let our team know so they could have provided a more enjoyable replacement. Please do revisit us the next time you are in the neighborhood; we would love to show you an impeccable experience. All the best, The Metropolis Team

    Exceeded my expectations, which were actually quite high. Every single plate was superb, very creative, well combined ingredients. Meats were tender and cooked to perfection (duck, pork belly). Inventive cocktails. The place is very comfortable, it has a casual elegance, not pretentious at all. Staff is excellent, all of them. Definitely will go back. Highly recommend it.

    Get to Metropolis before the secret is out! And when you go, and you should go often, request Marcus at your table. Yes, the food is creative and delicious in every way. Yes, the cocktails are inventive and full flavored. But the crown of eating at Metropolis is the service Marcus provides. On our second visit there, we took friends to celebrate one of their birthdays. We requested Marcus, his having been our server at our first visit, and this experience was better than the first. He greeted us by name, fussed over the birthday girl, and expertly guided us through the menu, the cocktails, and the wine. Marcus is the epitome of five-star service, and as we live just blocks from the restaurant, we're lucky to have him and Metropolis in our backyard.

    Beautiful space but underwhelmed by the meal. Appetizers (tacos, franks) were good but mains (short rib, angel hair) need work to stand out. Mash potato with rib had an inedibly salty and strong glaze on it. Cocktails were good, service prompt but felt less personal with so many different staff bringing and clearing plates.

    We were booked at Metropolis at 6 pm and had a 7pm curtain at the PAC. The waiter brough water immediately--no bread on the table or on offer--and took our dinner order by about 6:10. The food arrived in 12 minutes! All of our concerns about a tight squeeze were rescinded. The menu is limited but varied. Four of us order different mains, and all were superb. Wines by the glass are eclectic, but it's a generous pour for a pre-theatre meal. If you're going to Perelman, it's a great choice, but it's a way for UES residents.

    Our party enjoyed the Caesar salad and the Tuna tacos with all the wonderful accompaniments. I never order duck at restaurants as I make a really good duck breast myself but the Duck was outstanding and I'm looking forward to ordering it again. We also enjoyed the Branzino and had so much fun with all the accompaniments, the flan was delicious. We did not have time for dessert but hope to try them in the near future.

    I sat at the bar after a performance, and it was a lovely experience. The space is beautiful and feels modern yet warm. The bartender made excellent martinis (recommend both the Gibson and the Vesper). I had a few small plates, which were each delicious. The fluke crudo is exceptional, perfectly balanced with a delicious sauce to complement the fish. For dessert, the lime tart is absolutely delicious. I look forward to coming back again!

    Outstanding meal from start to finish with terrific table service. We will certainly come back. The prices were post-pandemic, post-inflation appropriate for the quality, with 1 caveat out to the management: charging $16 for a brwD service of 2 slices of bread was absurd and bizarre, not keeping with the rest of the very fine meal. Management should strongly consider revising this decision of theirs.

    Kitchen was closed at 9:45 which we understood in advance but we might have made it had we not been kept waiting at the host station for 10 minutes.

    The front receiving desk was somewhat inexperienced and didn't have the finesse of a fine dining welcome. The wait staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Our sommelier, Evan, was outstanding. He was very informative in helping us navigate and learn about wine menu. There needs to be better delineation between the restaurant and the rest of the venue. The food was fantastic. Overall we had a pleasurable evening, but there is some tweaking that can be done.

    The front of house folks did not have it together. They sent different people in our group to different areas so we didn’t easily find one another. We told the waiter we had to be at the 7pm performance —upstairs at their co-located venue!— and the food arrived and 6:45. This place has to get the food out if it’s going to work as pre-theater. There’s was no time to eat the main course. Fluke crudo app had a thick cloying sauce that really took away from an otherwise nice presentation. Salad was nice if a bit underseasoned. And again there was no time to finish the meal. The waiter who we did not ask for recommended dishes offered many of them anyway, surprisingly reading us most of the menu. Flatware bussed from the table wasn’t replaced. The level of professionalism was quite low in an otherwise stunning venue and under a celebrity chef banner.

    The restaurant has promise, but is not yet ready for prime time. Waitstaff were inadequately trained (e.g., one saying menu items were intended to be shared; another saying they were not) and at times inattentive. Some ordered items were insufficiently explained (specialty drinks, especially), some surprisingly bland (e.g. the hamachi taco), or poorly prepared (e.g. filter coffee that tasted mostly like warm water).

    Four of us arrived at noon for lunch and were presented with a brunch menu. It was Saturday so we were surprised. My breakfast sandwich as just OK. The slab of chicken sausage was thick and dry. The bagel was soft. One guest had the Salmon "lox" gyro and liked it. One guest had the french omelette with lots of beurre blanc but no bread to enjoy it. No bread is served to the table. No dessert is available. The waitstaff arrived with the check after 45 minutes thinking we were attending a 1:00 pm performance. They never asked when we checked in. We were attending a 2:00 pm performance and yet they kept coming over to see if we were ready to pay. The place was half empty so they didn't need our table. There is work to do Mr. Samuelsson.

    The food was good, but every dish is doused in very rich sauces, even the crudo. Service is quite rushed—meals come out immediately. The staff lacks the experience and knowledge to know that they should wipe your table in between courses if it is dirty, etc. Hopefully as the restaurant matures, so will the management.
    Metropolis by Marcus SamuelssonResponded on February 13, 2024

    This is definitely a worthwhile night out. The price is indicative of the precision and care that the whole team places in their work. The server Eddie was kind, timely, and kept us on schedule while ensuring we wanted for nothing. The food is nuanced and delicate. The duck and mole were something I’d expect to have out in the country. Smoky and fresh, and served in a titillating variety of preparations. The cocktails are for adults, also nuanced, delicate, and never too sweet. Let them take care of you, and they absolutely will! Congratulations to the whole team! A well worth it addition to the PAC.
    Metropolis by Marcus SamuelssonResponded on February 13, 2024
    Hi Ryan! Perfect! The whole team is basking in your cheerful praise! The excitement in your review just made our day, and we know it will inspire future guests to give us a try. Positive reviews are the best form of advertisement! Isn't Eddie the best? Your visit is the true definition of the type of visit we want for all of our guests, and we are thrilled to read our team was successful. Come back and see us again the next time you are near the restaurant. All the best, The Metropolis by Marcus Samuelsson Team
