Steakhouse
Retro Metro is 28 years in the making. After both Chef Tiny and Chef Hana crafted culinary greatness at The Metropolitan Grill in Springfield, they decided to go their own way. Southwest Springfield needed a great steak joint and they were just the power couple to bring it. Retro Metro is a “greatest hits album” of Metropolitan Grill — its legacy. But not only do they honor the greatest hits, they create innovative, new dishes, too. Combine Chef Tiny’s decades of restaurant experience with Chef Hana’s California Culinary Academy training and you’ve got the mashup of the century.

What’s with the menu names? Each dish is named after a member of the Retro family — after all, they’re the most valuable part! Look closely at the menu to see the year that each dish debuted.

Eat! Drink! And have a good time!

    Honestly, the first time we went was really good on the food quality. However, this experience was very disappointing. We had the lobster bisque and it was very salty. And the scallops came out raw. The short rib tasted like roast beef and the pasta was very oily. I will say the service was outstanding.

    Warm, welcoming atmosphere. Fun, lively vibe. Terrific food. Varied menu, special events, and private rooms. Full bar and extensive wine list. Owners are hands-on accessible and circulate through the restaurant regularly each day. Restrooms are inviting and creative with amenities.

    The service was very good as our waiter, Kevin, was very attentive. We ordered two appetizers, soup, salad, and the strip loin steak. The food was beyond delicious, as this restaurant has become a top three favorite in the Springfield area.

    Retro Metro continues to make perfect steaks after 3 visits! The last visit was for Valentines Day, so we waited for drinks and food a lot longer than usual, but the service itself was great. I wish the space was larger because if you get a center table, you get bumped and feel cramped. Food is overall just delicious!

    We ate in the Retro Room, which was quiet and comfortable. Our server could not have been more attentive, or nicer. The wine (Love You Bunches 2022} was an unexpected pleasure from Stolpman Vineyards, which we have visited and enjoyed. Both of our entrees were well-prepared of fresh, quality ingredients; unfortunately the chef was somewhat heavy-handed with the salt in both the carbonara and the risotto (served with the halibut). Creme brulee was excellent. We'll be back, of course; we'll just ask for less salt.

    Retro Metro is really good. It is also kind of expensive as well. To me it seems a little crowded and noisy for the pricing. However, the food is good and the serving team was great.

    First time here with a large party. We typically go to Flame or Char, but heard good things and wanted to try it out. The waiter we had was super short in responses when we asked questions about the items on the menu. Some of us have food intolerances and needed the waiter to clarify some things. Our water was never refilled and we had to go to the bar to get our drinks refilled numerous times. Waiter never checked on our food after it was delivered. Food was terrific, but we were not impressed for the level of service that was expected. We ran into another couple we knew and they were sitting by us, also complaining about the lack of service. Also, the payment service… do not have your waiter standing behind you when you insert your card to pay, watch you enter your tip option, and “suggest” a tip amount. Super uncomfortable payment process and definitely needs to be looked into.

    Had to wait 30 min. for a table even though had a reservation. Did not have proper vintage of wine ordered from menu. Tried to pass off inferior vintage. Ended up being offered a more expensive wine which turned out to be disappointing. Caesar salad overdressed, but steaks and sides were excellent.

    We enjoyed our dinner. The food was perfect and service was excellent. We ate in the bar area and there was a larger party dining there, so the noise level was higher, but not unbearable. Overall an excellent experience.

    Service was very slow for our party of 4 on a Wednesday evening. Forgotten drink orders more than one time meaning a 15-20 minute wait more than once. Unfortunately, we also experienced slow food service with the orders arriving significantly apart in time. Unsure if we will return or not. I like the vibe at this place so hopefully it was just an "off" night considering it really didn't seem that busy.

    Our waitress was fantastic! The food, just average. We make a gnocchi dish that’s much better than the one I ordered. If I’m going to pay that much for a meal, I expect it to be better than what I can make myself.
