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.

Great location for business lunch meetings. Noise level is perfect during the lunch hour to encourage deep discussions for you and your team.
Great service…prices have gone up….
Great service- in and out quickly and efficiently!
When we arrived with our printed reservation confirmation, we were told that the restaurant was closed for a private party. Better communication between Open Table and Metropolitan is imperative!
Great food. Loved how the large windows opened up onto the patio. Great spot for connecting with people.
Food was so so. Charcuterie was joke for $40. Waiter was in a terrible mood and ruined the whole experience. Will not be returning.
Noisy for a business lunch. Serving staff were friendly. Food was good but my brisket sandwich was burnt.
Lovely lunch on the patio.
Food was not what we ordered. My guest requested salad with dressing on the side. Didn’t arrive that way. The server never once came to our table to ask how our food was. She just threw the bill on the table when we were finished our lunch. We had to stop a different server to request the machine to pay the bill. No tip this time!
Really enjoyed our time at the Met. Food was great and our server was very attentive. Definitely go back.
Great venue and location, service and quality always top notch
Terrific service and a tasty meal … every time. Good selection of summer drinks and always fun to see the characters on Stephen Ave. Cheers.
Great service. Food was decent as well. Shout out to the Manager who dealt with us on Saturday night (June 26).
Great patio setup. Food was delicious.
Great service and the patio was a nice touch with exceptional weather.
Nice staff but had to wait a long time to see or hear from anybody to order drinks/food . Manager was a little sassy but was entertaining when the sass wasn’t there. Could turn down the attitude though.
The problem I had was that the restaurant was quite obviously understaffed. The service was friendly and professional when we received it, and the food was delicious. Speed of service is a critical issue for the professional lunch crowd. and waiting for your order to be taken and knowing you are on a tight schedule casts anxiety over the whole experience.
The energy is always wonderful with great food and service!
Service was absolutely awful. I had to ask someone to attend to us after being seated for more than 20 mins. Food was average.
Food was great! Server didn't provide a menu (food/drink) or QR code. I didn't see a QR code on the table.
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.
