    We went for lunch and this really isn't a lunch place. Don't know why they open. Very strange to be in large space with barely one other table filled. Menu is very limited. Beautiful day but terrace not open. With that said, food & service good. Go for dinner!

    Hi Tahoegal, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your recent lunch visit to Metropolis. We appreciate your honest observations; please understand that our lunch service can vary in activity depending upon the day of the week. We always strive to create a great ambiance and offer quality food and service regardless of the time of day. Your comments about the limited menu and the terrace being closed during lunch (right now, we only offer dinner service) were well received, and we will look into ways to enhance the lunch experience. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and service, and we hope you will join us again for dinner. Warmly, The Metropolis by Marcus Samuelsson Team

    Metropolis was well worth dining at. The ambiance and service were good. I ordered fried chicken and a biscuit and I was not happy with it. The chicken barely had any meat (it was mostly fat) and the biscuit was just okay. I definitely recommend stopping in before a performance.

    The entire dining experience was wonderful and classic. Our wait staff person was new (2nd day?), charming, and incredibly attentive. The food was remarkable, with a few memorable dishes. Presentations spot on. Lovely place to dine, even without a show at the PAC NYC after, but perfect for pre-theater.

    Although I enjoyed the ambiance and the food, I would not return because of the difficulty of reaching the restaurant by vehicle. Their website provided detailed directions about arriving by transit, but is silent on arriving by vehicle. There is absolutely no warning that no vehicle can get within two blocks of the restaurant because of the street blockages around the World Trade Tower. I use a walker and ended up having to walk two blocks in the rain before and after dinner. I feel that it was negligent of the restaurant not to share this information on their website. Instead of feeling good about a nice dinner, I was left with feelings of frustration and anger.
