We love Metropolitan and always have a wonderful time when we go. We took our family for brunch after church. It was very crowded and therefore, it was warm. Right before we left did anyone turn down the AC. My boys both ordered chicken fried steak. Their steaks were past the point of done and bordered on burned. Being hungry and not wanting to wait for another steak to cook, they ate them. But they were wishing they’d ordered something else. Mine and my husbands food was delicious. Our waiter was very attentive and kept our drinks filled. We will definitely go back. Just a few hiccups like this won’t keep us away.

We had a reservation so no issue getting seated. Atmosphere casual but elegant, men must remove hats. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. First issue is bar service needs improvement. Our drink order didn’t arrive until well into our entree. And then they substituted our wine with one we didn’t order and didn’t tell us that it was $20 more. I started with the Shrimp Cocktail then the Pork Tenderloin with a house salad. My spouse had the Scallops with the same salad. Food was delicious, portions were decent size and presentation pleasant. At eight pm live music started and of course it was sort of noisy so we stopped all our conversation and requested our bill. Prices are a little higher than average as a little over $200 dinner for two. The movie Casablanca was playing on the television above the bar. Should have wore my hat from Casablanca which I bought in Morocco. Parking at times can be limited as there is only street parking available and we had to walk a block to the restaurant. Since we enjoyed the food we will probably go back. Maybe at an earlier time when not quite as noisy. But definitely recommend making a reservation.

We celebrated our 35th anniversary at The Metropolitian and it was perfect. Our son called them and arranged a great bottle of wine. The Metropolitian had flowers on the table for us. They made it a special celebration.

My friends and I have had brunch after Sunday School at the Metropolitan on several occasions. We loved meeting there until today. We were taken back when the hot cakes were charcoal burnt on one side. When we asked the wait staff to fix it we were told it would $5 for a new one. After further questioning I showed the wait staff on the menu where the hot cake was $3. I was unsure where the problem was but we never got the rest of our breakfast. In all fairness, we were offered a discounted price but I am just wondering if this will always be the policy of the chef to dictate who gets what and how much they can charge? I am telling you this so you hopefully be aware.

It appears to be a great place--but only if you are personally acquainted with your server or the owners. Unfortunately, we didn't have the right connections. Instead, we were treated like an unwanted guest at a dinner party -- relegated to an out-of-the-way table (with uncomfortable chairs) near the kitchen and mostly forgotten. Server wasn't fully familiar with the menu and keep forgetting items. Seems like she finally gave up on us and spent the rest of the evening gabbing and hugging the guests at other tables (must have been family and friends from the looks of it). Although the food was a bit above average, it just took too long to arrive --- apparently the server entered our appetizer order but not the entree order. So after finishing our appetizer, the meal didn't arrive for almost a full hour after - - and that was after we had to grab another server to check for our meal in the kitchen; our server was too busy with other tables. In the end, we spent almost 2 hours at a place we didn't feel welcome. And to top off the entire experience, I had chosen the restaurant because I wanted to pamper my wife on her birthday. Instead, I had to keep apologizing to her for ruining her birthday. Instead of her feeling special, she felt like an inconvenience to the staff.
I wanted to like the place so much, but regretted my decision. Next year, I hope I can find a better restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday.

Everything was great, except the food wasn’t real warm. The thick prime rib was cool in the middle, and more medium, than med rare.

You know I have been all over the world and I have one off night I had to spend in Amarillo Tx something I thought I would never say and I picked this restaurant because it was close to my hotel with no high hope and was stunned. This place was wonderful!
