To die for. The great thing about The Met is that you don't feel rushed at lunch time. The service is good, the food is fast and I've never complained about this salad which is just about all I ever order.

Made up of memories that are of great layout and the perfect ambiance. The booths are very secluded and make for some great conversation.

Eaten here a few times, first time using Open Table. They called to confirm the reservation which was nice. Everytime I've eaten here I've never been dissapointed with my meal

Arrived for a business lunch with clients, gave our drink orders (non-alcholic), got our drinks within good time, ordered our food. It took over an hour, asked the waitress what was taking so long, she stated that it is because one of our group ordered their steak well done, a New York Striploin. Manager came over said the same thing, ridiculous. We said we did not believe that was the reason, since when does that take an hour? When the food finally arrived, the "well done" steak was only well done around the edges, centre was rare. Manager came over and did at least waive the "well done" meal and gave a gift certificate.

We were not impressed.

This is the first time that I've been to the restaurant since they've renovated and I have to say that I do enjoy the colors and interior. The noise level was high but I was still able to hear the voices of those around me. My only complaint would be to get rid of one of the tables in between the booth (seated 6) I was in and the main traffic path through the restaurant so that people could get in and out of there easily. Otherwise, you're left with going all the way around and trying to squeeze through a very tight area.

Could use some improvement there but overall it was a good experience.

Lots of light healthy contemporary selections. Active manager makes sure service is top notch.

One small issue with the food which was handled very well by the server and manager. Will definitely be back.

We had the best evening. Waitress was excellent, food was great and we had a nice seat in the back where my friend and I could talk. I have a bad back and she gave me a choice of the best seat for me. It was really nice.

Food was just great and it was so nice to be able to reserve as table on line. Very good way to go as who likes standing in line.

We will definately come back again!

Went for lunch yesterday. My friend had a chicken ceasar salad and he said that it was okay but nothing different than he would have at an Earl's or a Moxies. I had the lunch feature which was a chicken supreme stuffed with prosciuitto and cheese with mashed potatos and veggies. The chicken was cooked very well with crispy skin, but the stuffing was not that great. The cheese was bland with no flavour and the prosciutto was AWOL. When I mentioned this to the server she spoke to the chef and he said that he had put it in there himself. I don't know what happened to it, but it wasn't there. I must say that the veggies were cooked the way they should be, nice and crispy. I recommend this restaurant with hesitation.

Service was less then impressive. The server came to our table a total of 3 times in the span of an hour and a half, we were forced to waive the manager down to pay our bill.
I ordered a $16.00 hamburger and received a very small hamburger (the bun of which was clearly not fresh AND store bought) and my significant other ordered pasta which was boarder line room temperature.
Not only was the general service and food well below average (with prices that match a gourmet restaurant) I waited 15 minutes after my reservation to receive my table after showing up 5 minutes early and having several walk-in customers sat before me.
I am very disappointed with my visit, I will never give Metropolitan Grill my business again.

I like the Metropolitan Grill for the occassional lunch with friends. My work place is a block away from this restaurant and I find the food to be always excellent and the service to be very good. The noise level is quite high so you need to be aware of that if you are looking for a quiet meal. Either than that I love this restaurant for lunch with friends. One of my favourite ones.

I have to admit that I find it sad to see young waitresses - some my daughter's age - having to dress in such short dresses and showing so much cleavage in this day and age. They seem to be so concerned about the way they look that the service they provide is being affected. My experience at Metropolitan Grill was lessened because of that and I could not recommend it to others. Do you think you'd have less clients if the waitresses weren't dressed like sex objects? Thanks for considering.
