There is something special about Calgary. It is different than other Canadian cities. You can feel it when patio season starts, when a chinook rolls in, or when you get a high five from a stranger just after the Flames make the playoffs. It’s a small town at heart.
At its core, The Metropolitan, has always aimed to embody that spirit. Over the past 16 years we’ve grown with the city, for the city; forever evolving in constant pursuit of being the place where Calgarians gather.

It was really good food! Love this place.
Was not happy with our experience Firstly once our waitress took our drink order she didn’t check on us for almost 30 mins to see if we were ready to order food. Then once she finally did come I was about to say we’re ready to order and she just walked away. We thought maybe she just didn’t hear us so my friend called to her saying we’re ready to order but she just looked back at us and walked away.
Then my friend asked her for salt because her food had no taste and she took another 20 mins to bring it to us! Was definitely one of the worst experiences and definitely won’t be returning
Went there for a business lunch with a colleague. We sat on the patio. The patio Heather was on even though it was a hot day. My arm was burning hot and was turning red. Our server was not very attentive and looks like the manager was berating staff in the middle of the patio. Horrible experience. Will never return.
The service was excellent, but the Tuna Salad was outstanding. Nice "Asian Kick" Dressing, with a healthy portion of lightly seared Tuna. I will definitely be ordering that again!1
Great food and service! Awesome to be out, hear noise and have delicious cocktails!
Booking was easy. Staff were great. Service was decent. Food was a miss but the restaurant handled it quickly and professionally. Drinks were crazy expensive. Overall had a good experience.
The Met is my absolute favourite spot on Stephan ave! Such a great venue, amazing food and drinks with the best staff in the world, they are all so amazing and make for the best experience every time! I go at least once a week and find I am always coming back. Can’t say enough good things!
The service staff are amazing.
Our service was impeccable and the food tasted delicious.
Pretty good, my soup arrived cold, but when I told the server, they replaced it with a hot soup and my lunch meal was free.
Thanks, I wasn't expecting that, but it would not have been a great review otherwise.
Hi there, Thank you for your feedback and we apologize again for the cold soup. We hope that you still enjoyed your lunch with us and can give us another chance in the future as we are certain we can give you a perfect experience. We hope to see you again soon!
Good food, however several very clearly drunk/on drugs people were aloud on the premises at 8:30. My wife went to the ladies room and there were two girls in the stall getting it on!
Hi Ron, We are glad you enjoyed your food and apologize for the behaviour you witnessed on premise. We are doing our best to ensure the safety of our guests and monitor the restaurant of this behaviour as well. Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again soon.
Great place to go for lunch with colleagues during the week. Service is awesome!
Amazing service from Ryan the bartender. I saw a gentleman walking around the restaurant I think the manager, he came and checked on us a few times super fun to talk to and super attentive didn’t catch his name but he was English sounding like the queen. Will tell my friends and be coming back soon.
Restaurant not making customers follow social distancing or mask rules!
Customers were mingling, not wearing masks when not at their tables. Very disappointing.
Had been a few times and didn't love it previous but the manager nick was really sweet came over multiple times to make sure I was enjoying everything, highly recommend!
With Covid, I got a spot on the patio. The food was great and our server was lovely.
The food here is so good. The new chef has done a great job. I have the Chicken Caesar salad or the burger everyone i go
Had the lettuce wraps and it was fantastic, very affordable lunch option in downtown
Even though the waitresses have to wear masks they should be a little more attentive and friendly to the customers as that's how they will get tips now. Not just their looks.
Great service and great food.
Took forever to order
Lettuce wraps were served with lettuce leaves no more than half an inch wide for chunks of chicken that were huge. It was tasty but very disappointing as an appetizer you would expect to eat with your hands. I ate it as a salad. The dynamite roll I ordered was unavailable and the noise level in the restaurant was uncomfortable. We had to leave so we could talk. The service was very good but the rest was less than expected.
All good but the reason for the overall low score is the super annoying alarm sound yesterday. Never experienced that before at your place or else. We came to relax and enjoy food and company and we ended up irritated and tired. Bothered my client and myself very much.
Other than that, food and service were very much OK.
The wings came out and were undercooked. While disappointed...it does happen. The error was corrected very quickly. Otherwise was a good experience and value for the dollar.
It is very loud in there, but the decor is very nice. Food was delicious! Would definitely recommend.
I think was hopefully a one off bad experience. Our server was great and she handled to food issues well. She did inform us they have a new chef and are launching a new menu so I'm hopefully it'll be better next time.
Food and service was very good but music was way too loud. We were seated at a booth and still struggled to hear ourselves talk. We asked the server to turn it down, but she pretty much told us nicely that that wasn’t going to happen and she was right. Music blared on.
The food was very good, but the restaurant was far too noisy. You had to yell so you could have a conversation with your tablemates.
Most disappointed with the fact that I was severely overcharged. When I called back the next morning at 11 am to have it sorted out, I was told they would sort it out and call me back. I called back at 4 pm and was told they were too busy to look into it.
When I hadn't heard back by the next day at 12:30 I was told the girl I spoke with left the building. I spoke with the manager, he told me he had heard about what happened, but nothing more. Still waiting to hear back how I am going to get my money back (over $70). Very poor customers service. I won't be back. Shame on you The Met!
For a busy night, the waitress was very kind and was doing her best considering the circumstances. However, the kitchen got both of the orders at our table wrong (ex. Presenting two burger sliders when the menu calls for three in an order).
Great location, good food, great service, excellent table availability.
Food was great. Went for a business lunch and it was so loud I could barely hear my client. I will never do that again, but would definitely go back for an evening out with friends.
Everything was great. Our waitress was perfect! She was knowledgeable, personable, witty (which I admire), came and went with perfect timing. Food was delicious (ahi tuna and snapper) albeit a little pricey. Did not order any alcohol and the bill was $70.
Very nice place but food was expensive and portions were very small. Food was below average for the prices. Service was very poor,having 5 waitresses on staff with about 60 people in the place,service should have been better. I ordered my dinner and a refill on my drink. I got my dinner first and didn't get my drink until after i finished eating.
The meal and service was great, but they now have a DJ every Friday night and it was so loud you couldn’t have a conversation with someone you were sitting beside. We went for dinner at a restaurant, not a bar.
Sarah was a great server. And was amazed how fast the food came out of the kitchen. If a person needed a quick fantastic lunch. This is the spot
It was a great overall experience.
Lunch was not very good, but quite overpriced, even for downtown!
My guest was seated at the wrong table for over 20 minutes, while I waited for him at a table I had reserved. The Management did not come over to apologize until requested to do so.
The lady serving us (I believe her name is Ashley) is a great person and very good at her job. She deserves some recognition for the service she gave us.
