    We had a wonderful dinner, service was impeccable - professional and informative yet warm and not intrusive. Starting with the Sesame Manhattan cocktail was a great start, and my husband loved the bespoke martinis menu. Our favorite food item was the hamachi tacos. The arctic char also was nicely done. The architecture of the PAC and interior design made it a perfect evening.

    Metropolis is phenomenal. The food is creative and delicious. Although prices are somewhat high, the food and ambience justify it. The service is impeccable. We had the Parsnip Agnolotti and the Arctic Char as mains and both were phenomenal. The cucumber salad to start was equally creative and wonderful. It’s a beautiful space and great for date night or any occasion. The restaurant is inside the Perelman Performing Arts Center.

Every dish that came out was beautiful to look at, every single one of the dishes tasted delicious. This will be my new "go to" spot, when I like to take out visitors to NYC.

    Absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. We listened intently to, and took a lot of our server’s (Marcus) suggestions, all of which were top notch. It is nearly impossible to rank the various aspects of the meal, so indulge yourself by ordering any mix of the following: Sesame Manhattan cocktail, Caesar salad, the Metropolis version of pigs in a blanket, hamachi tacos in cilantro crepes, duck, and the Metropolis version of pasta carbonara. We topped it off with a delectable donut dessert, and could not have been happier with our entire evening. A+!

    The restaurant is a lovely, serene venue located within the PAC. As part of a larger institution, my expectations were modest. What a wonderful surprise! The brunch menu is short, but every dish seemed creative. The fried chicken and biscuit dish was exceptional- so interesting, made with a Japanese chili rub. Likely the best fried chicken I’ve ever had. The service was attentive and every server was friendly. Even the espresso, offered with a lemon peel, was perfect. Will certainly go back!

    The food was good but the staff was not warm and not flexible. It was my daughter’s 21st birthday and one of the staff said they would have to charge me a $5/person cake cutting fee if we didn’t use their breakfast pastry. I had noted in my reservation this was a birthday celebration and we’d like a cake or something to put candles in. No one seemed to have read the comments or even cared. I had a tiny grocery store bought mousse that I offered to bring as I live nearby but paying $5/person would have been twice the amt I paid for the tiny “cake” and they would not waive the fee. In the end they bought out a small scoop of ice cream and put the candles on the plate. I’m not sure I’ll return which is a shame given I live in the neighborhood and like their dinner menu.

    Hi TMNYC, Thank you for being our guest and sharing your visit here on Open Table. We apologize for the disappointment you experienced during your daughter's 21st birthday celebration; please trust this was never our intention. We want to clarify our cake-cutting fee policy, which is a standard practice in many restaurants; it is applied only when guests choose to bring their own dessert instead of ordering from our dessert menu. We understand your frustration, especially given the special occasion. We cherish your support and look forward to the opportunity to deliver a more positive and memorable dining experience. Warm regards, The Metropolis by Marcus Samuelsson Team

    Overall, this was a very pleasant dining experience. The ambiance of the restaurant was outstanding. The food was tasty, and presented well in generous portions. We were seated next to the kitchen door at a time when the venue was mostly empty. Several menu items were not available for Sunday Brunch (e.g., the oysters). Due to the convenient location in the same building as the new PACNYC, I expect I will return.

    I ordered a cappuccino and babka. The babka was delicious. The cappuccino was delicious also but extremely small for the price. It looked to be about 2 ounces for $7.

    Very nice space and decor. The brunch menu is rather small and not well balanced yet. I appreciated the expanded services of PAC and what it will be in the future. A nice spot before a show.

    We loved every single thing we had, but they need to work out service issues, which I think were largely related to the restaurant being relatively new. Mains appeared before we were even finished with our starter, which made me feel very rushed. Also, we had told our server when we ordered our cocktails that we would want wine with the mains, but we had to flag her down to place the order, which didn’t appear until we were halfway through the mains. But the overall experience was very good; although it’s a little pricey, portions were generous and the food was excellent. I would definitely return.

    Another outstanding Marcus Samuelsson restaurant. Cocktails and food were both first rate. The ambiance is exquisite, and it integrates perfectly with an evening of theater at the glorious new Perelman PAC NYC. A great overall concept. FIVE STARS

    We had appetizers before the show…Smoked Hamachi Taco & Blanketed Franks. The taco components were served separately, 4 small slices of hamachi came in a small rectangular box that when opened, billowed smoke pleasantly into my face. Assembly was a bit messy but all the components blended into a delicious bite. At $32, it was pricey. The frank was tasty but did not compare with the tacos. The dining room is a bit generic but tastefully done.

    Hi Jann, Thank you for joining us and sharing your detailed thoughts. We appreciate your highlighting our delicious and unique Smoked Hamachi Taco. Assembly can be a bit messy, but it's so much fun! We also loved your description of the beautiful presentation. We hope you will join us again the next time you visit PAC NYC or are in the lower Manhattan neighborhood. All the best, The Metropolis Team

    On the plus side, the food and service are excellent. The downsides, the atmosphere seemed sort of slick & sterile; the menu is quite short; and the pricing is somewhat aggressive.
    Metropolis by Marcus SamuelssonResponded on March 26, 2024

    Food was okish. My pasta was absolutely delicious but my friend’s salmon sandwich was nothing but ordinary. I choose this place to celebrate our friendship and one year far apart reunion. At 2:00 the waiter started telling us they would close soon. It was so annoying. I would not come back. Too expensive for its service.

    It is such a beautiful space! I love going there, and will do so often as I work nearby. I do wish the menu were a little more varied. BTW, it was lovely to see a group of children learning about the restaurant/food at the time we were there.

    Eddie made our special evening spectacular by recommending a table by glass. The Bronzino was superb however, the highlight of the evening was the tartar. The overall experience was well worth it. It is a must try for foodies.
    Metropolis by Marcus SamuelssonResponded on March 19, 2024
    Thank you for your recommendation! We are thrilled you loved our Steak Tartare and Whole Grilled Branzino. Thank you for the kind words about Eddie; we are ecstatic that his recommendations enhanced your experience. Please come back and see us again! All the best, The Metropolis by Marcus Samuelsson Team

    My husband and I traveled here from Long Island to dine before attending Laurence Fishburn’s amazing one man show at PAC. We enjoyed the ambiance, the food, the cocktails, and the service. Such a beautiful restaurant!
