Steak was incredible and the seafood special was fabulous! Service top notch! Beverages are always outstanding!
Love Metropolitan. Great ambiance. Love the speakeasy atmosphere. Would love to fear Louie Armstrong on Pandora being played there. Becoming our favorite place to eat. No place like it in Amarillo.
We love Metropolitan! Was a perfect place to bring my Mom visiting from Portland, Oregon! Open table helped us get our table right away! It was a splendid evening!
Food and service was amazing as usual! Mike was great and always a step ahead of us!
A quiet drink and appetizer without the teenagers. The service was friendly and helpful. Brandi did a wonderful job noticing me waiting and then seated me when she had the opportunity. The conversation made feel welcomed.
Graceful welcome, very good cocktails, very good food, and Mike was most attentive waiter.
All good BUT…. Music was too damn loud… could not enjoy visiting with friends….
Cozy and comfortable with great ambiance. Owners and staff are always accommodating.
Delicious food in an upbeat location.
Restaurant and Bar were modern and beautiful. Atmosphere was great!
Metropolitan is unbeatable on decor and ambiance. The service is amazing and the drinks exceptional. The appetizers are pretty good but the main dishes are lacking. I would return, but only for drinks and maybe some starters. (More tapas than dinner).
We ordered a chicken pasta for main, which was ok, but no wow factor. The meatloaf was bland and uninspiring. The canned mushrooms did not help the dish and while it was decently executed, (Brussels sprouts were good) it lacked panache.
I wish the chef would push boundaries more and stop with “safe” dishes. Go big. Put something more exotic on your menu like quail or elk (as entrees), etc.
If the food was as exceptional as your drinks, service and atmosphere - you’d be in Michelin star territory.
Go for it. There is the potential to be the best in Amarillo.
Metropolitan is a great place to have dinner and drinks. My wife and I celebrated our 31st anniversary of 'starting to date' there last night and had a great time. Food was terrific. Very good wine. People could not have been nicer. Bonus: we were lucky to meet the owners who also could not have been nicer. If you are looking for an upscale dining experience you cannot go wrong with Metropolitan IMHO.
Great service and food. Really enjoy the atmosphere and the staff is always friendly and remembers your name.
As always, perfect!!!
We had great service and really enjoyed the entire experience. The drinks were perfectly made. We eat here every time we’re in Amarillo.
Great food, service, drinks, and atmosphere.
Tori, our waitress, was superb. The drinks were spot on, the food is always perfect and unique, great live music and ambience. We've never had a bad experience. It's our go to date night spot. Highly recommend!
We just happened upon The Metropolitan while visiting from out of town. We loved it and will recommend to friends!
Filet and Salmon was fantastic! Loved the big chairs, flowers on the table for our Anniversary were perfect. Great service, and Atmosphere! Definitely going back!
The Met is my go to place for date nights, girls night and brunch! Amazing food, awesome craft cocktails and great live music on the weekends! Love this place!
Always outstanding food and service. Sound level could be a little lower for me.
Great atmosphere, friendly helpful staff. Weekend Brunch had a nice variety of choices. Our chicken fried steak and salmon salad were prepared perfectly. 👍🏻
The food and atmosphere was incredible. This was our first time and we really enjoyed our meals! We can't wait to go back and try other dishes!
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.
Great ambiance, great food, excellent service & reasonable pricing
Always great food and service. Cool place to hangout.
Nothing else like it in Amarillo.
Keep up the good work!
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.
Metro is our go-to for every special occasion, from birthdays and anniversaries to date nights and reunions.
Seeking an exquisite and unique dining experience with excellent food and enjoyable ambiance? Metropolitan has what no other restaurant has in Amarillo. A truly wonderful dining establishment.
This was a terrific dining experience. The service was unusually good. The food was awesome! Great atmosphere. Definitely recommend. We will be back.
Amazing food and excellent atmosphere. We love this place and the staff!
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.
The vibe was great the food was Amazing and the live music hit the spot. I took my wife out last night for an early mother's day dinner and it couldn't have been any more perfect. Thank you for making her night AMAZINGLY PERFECT.
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!
The food was delicious and the service was professional and Brandi took care of all our needs!
Great first time visit. We rate our overall experience to evenings we’ve enjoyed at Eddie V’s and YO Steakhouse in Dallas. Fun atmosphere, excellent service, good wine selection and fabulous food. Very happy and impressed to find the Metropolitan in Amarillo
This is a wonderful place for a special occasion. We can't wait for our next visit here.
Awesome drinks, awesome food and Garrett is a fantastic server.
