The bar was closed. Web site and open table never updated to BYOB, there was no one in the restaurant. It was very dark. The menu wasn't what was represented either and they used plastic ware in little plastic bags like a to go place or Wawa. Apparently they are under renovation. Would not recommend based on our experience.
I was recommended by a friend to this black owned BYOB establishment. I will give my review from the ambience, drinks, appetizers and then the main course.
First you need to have a reservations in order to dine in. We were greeted by a gentlemen in a tshirt and jeans asking if we had a reservations. We were the seated. The music was nice and social distancing was in effect. I say there were about 4 other couples besides us that were dining in.
After we were seating we noticed no one had their food yet and my husband said we mihht not get our food for awhile. Our waitress came back asked us what we wanted to drink. The drinks were good i had the pineapple ginger lemonade and my husband had sweet tea.
We were then asked if we were having Appetizers; we had cauliflower bites and salmon cheese steak fries. The fries were not hot but the salmon was. These 2 dishes were good despite the fries not being hot.
Lastly our Main course: there is 2 seperate menus a thursday/friday one and a Saturday/Sunday menu. We came on a Friday and the menu special was seafood. I wanted Dungeness crabs but they werent serving any only snow crabs. I was really looking forward to haing Dungeness crab. So, my husband enjoyed the cajun chicken pasta.
I had the fish and grits with shrimp added. My grits were cool but the fish was pipping hot. Now for them to bring out the food as it was done, my grits or the french fries should not have been cold.
In conclusion, the ambience does not match what's on the website pictures but the music was on point. I would not be returing and im a little hesitant about recommending. I love to support but i love enjoying hot food as well.
Found out about this restaurant through IG, I anticipated certain foods I saw and got there the menu wasn’t anywhere close. The place was empty at 6pm so the food/service was fast we were out of there by 7! Now I booked for another date for a birthday celebration at 8:15 for THEM to cancel at 6:30 on a Friday! It’s on a secluded area inside of an apartment complex so it doesn’t get noticed. But to turn away the little business you do get isn’t fair nor smart.
We had reserved reservation at 6pm. We get there and we’re waiting and waiting and it wasn’t busy so we were not sure what the hold up was. Still waiting finally at 6:50pm someone came sat us down gave us some water and said they would be back with menus
We’re waiting we’re waiting and no one came at this point there was a group of ladies sitting a table over and we looked over and saw that they really didn’t touch their food my husband asked how’s the food they couldn’t tell us how awful it was now all this time were still waiting on menus. After speaking with the other table and the place was not busy and the service was just outright awful! I will never recommend a place where the service isn’t accommodating even if u made a reservation. Food can’t speak on other then the ladies in the next table but then again we didn’t even get that opportunity. We got up and left.
Short rib was under cooked. No one else was in the restaurant and the waitress lagged too much time.
Wonderful! I plan to return ASAP.
The customer service was excellent and the food was delicious.
The service and the food was excellent. I really love the atmosphere. Very relaxing.
Not even a real restaurant there was people outside smoking and made it awkward for anyone to come in . I will never go back .
Looking forward to coming back!
We cannot wait to come back. I am taking my business partners for business lunches and dinners. I support black-owned businesses and cannot wait to support with my corporate account!
Just a bad experience
Food came to my table burned
Will not patronize again
Well the food was GREAT! Can’t say anything else positive about the service
Order the lamb chops
Finding the restaurant was a little tricky as the location as to how to get in a little confusing but once in, great atmosphere. The music is lovely. The food is great but next time please have my food piping hot 🙂. Also, the place is BYOB so I wish I had known before I went but I know now so everything will be set for my next visit, especially since I was given a 10% discount for my next visit ❤. This place is a winner for me!!!
We had a great dinner ! Our host was very gracious and Maggie, our waitress was top notch ! We will definitely go back !!
I absolutely loved dining at the Metropolis Restaurant! The hostess/waitress was very polite, and she provided great service to my boyfriend & I. All of the workers were very nice, and the set up was beautiful! The food was great! I will definitely be returning soon!
The service, staff, food, atmosphere EVERYTHING was GREAT! I’ll DEFINITELY be back soon!
Food was AMAZING!!!
Went on Valentine’s Day, everything was good. Would’ve been extra special if they had a band playing. Loo
The only complaint I have is how many times they mixed up our food orders and kept bring out the wrong things ...other than that everything else was great!
Staff was excellent. Ambiance was nice. I enjoyed myself.
They cut the menu down due to Covid-19 second wave but noting was short of amazing. Very reasonable prices & awesome
The service and food was so amazing
Friend treated me to dinner for my birthday, Dinner was Amazing. Excellent Customer Service. Place was quiet at the time we were there, I assumed it was because of Covid restrictions
I took my boyfriend out for his birthday and Our waitress took long with absolutely everything from our appetizer to our bill. Never brought out our water that we asked for either, and then The waitresses and Customers started fist fighting because they took over an hour to bring out their food. Very ghetto. I definitely wouldn’t be going back.
Outstanding food and service. Highly recommend dining here
Worth the wait. I love it here.
The experience was beautiful it was a double date first off let me say the customer service from the time we walked in the door to the time we sat time was phenomenal!! The food was to die for the portions were perfect the setting was very elegant very intimate and elegant it’s BYOB and I love that overall it was a amazing experience and last but not least it’s a #Blackowned restaurant🥰will definitely give 5 stars and go again please don’t hesitate to book!!
My service was amazing! The ambiance was outstanding. My girlfriend and I went but I'm definitely going to take my husband there for a date.
The server was amazing. I ordered the shrimp and grits. The grits were cold and a bit too stiff. The garlic bread tasted a bit like it was microwaved and was too hard.
This was a wonderful dinner at my new favorite restaurant! The macaroni and cheese is sooo tasty!!!! I had to order more and take it home. This salmon is so good, I don’t know what they do!! Can’t wait to go back!! I’m in love with the yams💖
Really outstanding fish and grits. My wife's mussels were a tad on the salty side. The server and the chef were exceptionally friendly.
I came for a private wedding reception and decided to return as the food we had was so tasty. We came in for Crab Night and the crab/shrimp meal was sooo tasty and fresh! The music was on point too;Neo-Soul. While waiting on our meal it almost turned into a mini Karaoke night! Haha. I have zero complaints- clean restrooms, great atmosphere, great music, black owned business & the owners are great people! They just opened in January and are picking back up since COVID hit. Give them a try you won’t be upset!
Came all the way from De, and the Service was horrible .the food was cold and half the party that attended didn't get their food on time then it wasn't a lot of people in the restaurant . we will never go back i spend $279 for 10 people and 2 people didn't even get their food once the owner came out to speak with us they apologize on the Waitress behalf and gave us free Deserts but Didn't take anything off the bill so with that being said don't Waste your time or money to go There with that kind of service we will never be back. bad experience left a bad taste in all 10 of Our mouth you know it's bad the children don't even wanna go back 👎we give it a 1️⃣
good food and location convenientgood food and location convenient
Always enjoy the service and food! The owner is consistently attentive to her customers....Millie Stephens
Wasn't greeted when first came in.... we stood and waiting for 15 minutes to be seated it was a big tall guy walking back and forth never said someone will be with you shortly said nothing then another couple came in after us and the guy called them back it looked like they knew each other because they shook each other hands and the pat on the back but later we seen they came to look at a space I guess to rent out. I wouldn't go back the sweet potatoes was to sweet with too much cinnamon the greens was over cooked the salmon was over cooked the mac and cheese was over cooked and all the food was cold the only good thing was our waitress Khadihia (the muslim) lady her service was good but she was busy/overwhelmed with her tables and section it seem like she was the only waitress that night. No I would/we never go back!
Everything was great!
