    Restaurant needs to be refreshed. Same art on the walls for years now. Calamari app was tasty but, portion was minuscule. Fries were sent back because they were over the top salted.

    I reserved a table for 3 last Sunday evening, not knowing what to expect. What a wonderful experience!! Incredibly creative, delicious food from the appetizers through the desert (Sweet Corn ice cream and Celebration Cake are musts!) everything was superb. It can get a bit noisy with a couple of big groups, but the outstanding food and wine selection outweighs any distractions. Highly…most highly recommended!!

    I love the Metropole now that the “new” chef has remade the menu. It is a great dining experience that could be exceptional if the wait staff had more training and knew the protocols for serving and interacting with guests.

    My daughter and I went here before the Aronoff. The location is wonderful, the dining room is nice, the service is good. We enjoyed the bread and I enjoyed the cocktails. The entrees were not to our liking. My pasta with lobster was very soupy, and contained more corn than pasta. It did, however, have plenty of lobster. The dish was not very good. My daughter ‘s steak was so tough she couldn’t cut through it. Overall, we don’t plan to go back.

    We have never eaten here before and were so looking forward to celebrating our 47th anniversary with the gift card from our son. Even though I made reservations well in advance, we didn’t even get to sit inside the restaurant. We asked if we could sit inside and were told it wasn’t possible even though there were available tables. There were people waiting pretty close to our table and it was very loud. Definitely not the atmosphere we were anticipating for such a special occasion. However, the food and service was vey good.

    Friendly and knowledgeable - we were given excellent recommendations. Food (scallops, waldorf salad) & drinks (loved the Funny Bunny & Queen Cafe!) were delicious. Received the checks promptly and accurately - not always a given these days. A very enjoyable time, in large part due to the excellent service. Loved the added touch of cotton candy to go, and the ability to buy a round for the staff!
