The menu was different than what was online. When we arrived we had thought that we would be able to order what we previously had seen. That was not the case. The sides for each entrée were different or they were out and the appetizers were different. Although not a big deal, the ones that they had were not a good value. We ordered the shrimp and artichoke hearts fried with aioli and cocktail sauce, they were good, but not worth $12. The salad was great and we decided to split the double bone in pork chop. They split the pork chop in half and the side that we received was collard greens with mushrooms, which was not good and rice and beans, which the beans were crunchy and hard. My half of the pork was moist and full of flavor while my husbands was extremely dry and hard to eat. Overall the meal and drinks came to over $100 and was not worth it. The black and white show they had at the bar was odd too. I know it is supposed to be a speak easy but it would've been a better atmosphere if there was something else on tv too.

Wonderful meal and great live music.

Our server (her name starts with an A), was quite new but very pleasant.

Neal at the bar served the perfect cocktails for us!

I was disappointed with the fact that the did not social distance the tables and our table was right by kitchen door that had little to no space for staff to walk by us.

The restaurant is classy and sophisticated. The menu is limited but everything on it is excellent. The bartenders and wait staff are knowledgeable and the selection at the bar is extensive. We really enjoyed it. It’s pretty pricey so the metropolitan is a special occasion type of place for us.

Outstanding as always. Extremely packed on this Friday night so service was a little slower than normal - we had to wait 20 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation, but the friendly staff, excellent cocktails, good food, and fabulous live music (Austin Brazille trio) more than made up for it. The owners were on hand making the rounds as they often are. Always enjoy chatting briefly with Charlie. By far the best dining experience in Amarillo.

What a mess. Not one employee was wearing a mask, and when we asked about social distancing, our server said, "Oh, we never get to capacity." Well, it certainly looked to be at capacity with every barstool occupied and table full throughout the cavernous, multi-roomed restaurant. Plus, our server was nice but very slow and inattentive. The $22 steak bites came out with maybe 10 small pieces of meat, a few cheese cubes, way too many pepperocinis and olives with two Hawaiian sweet rolls you get at the store. Of course, she didn't give us the bread until we asked for bread. We wouldn't have known what was with the appetizer, because there was no description of it on the menu. It wasn't worth $12, much less $22. Plus, the acoustics in the restaurant made people have to yell to be heard. This was called a "speakeasy," but obviously the only thing the owner knows about running a speakeasy is to charge $14 for an average cocktail in a tiny glass.

The space and atmosphere are very nice but this is not fine dining. Presentation missed the mark in several areas—plastic serving dishes, salad dressing in condiment cups like a fast food restaurant, and standard salt and pepper shakers come to mind. The staff is also undertrained in proper serving and clearing, and are not well-versed in the menu or its prep. The food was good but not for the price point. Everything was too heavily salted and my scallops were overcooked. At half the price, this is worth considering but it falls short of what they’re trying to accomplish and definitely short for what they’re charging.

The only reason I downgraded my rating was because I was unaware of the Valentine's Day restricted menu and the elevated cost associated with it. We went the day after Valentine's Day and booked our reservation through Open Table. Open Table did not provide information on the special menu and pricing - that information was only available on Metropolitan's social media sites, which I did not review. The meal was very good but was priced approximately double the normal price. My view is that Open Table should incorporate some method to alert folks of special events.

We loved the 1930’s vibe at Metropolitan. The brunch menu was well designed and offered great selections. The service was impeccable and all staff that we encountered was friendly and welcoming. The French toast was delicious and enough to share with all the extras included with the meal. We would love to return for dinner one night.

We went for family brunch for my grandmother’s birthday and had 2 small children with us. The service was phenomenal and our waitress was very attentive without being overbearing. Everything we ordered was delicious: banana toffee pancakes, scallops Benedict, chicken fried steak, huevos rancheros, and an omelet. The potatoes are cooked and seasoned perfectly. The scallops were cooked perfectly. We also had bellinis and mimosas, also excellent. We will definitely be back!
