Steak
The Metropolitan Grill. The moment you step into the Metropolitan Grill, you know you have entered a classic steakhouse. Guests enter through tall mahogany doors to be greeted by tuxedo clad Maitre D’s. Cuts of beef are showcased in a glass display in the front entryway. Framed photographs of celebrities, sports heroes and local politicians, all frequent visitors to The Met, line the walls.


At the Metropolitan Grill, the focus is on the Prime beef, American and Japanese Wagyu. Steaks are seared over the high heat of the “Iron Wood of the World,” imported mesquite charcoal, ensuring the most tender, juicy steaks available. Metropolitan Grill Chefs personally select each cut that is served to guests.


The Metropolitan Grill’s award-winning wine list showcases the definitive steakhouse selection of premium West Coast red wines, with special emphasis on Cabernets, Merlots and Meritage.

My husband and i eat here once a year, for our anniversary. We enjoy the food, the service and have never had a bad meal. However, with the updates to menu, my husband noticed more of a "smokey" flavor in his steak, not bad mind you but enough for him to say something to me. I loved my meal way more than him... but we will still be back.

Our salads before the main course were excellent. My wife’s filet was incredible: seasoned very well and cooked perfectly! I ordered the Delmonico bone-in strip and should’ve gone with the filet. My steak was slightly overcooked and lacking seasoning (I should’ve known when the waiter suggested pouring au jus on it). In my opinion, a $74 steak shouldn’t need additional dressing.

We ordered Brussels sprouts as a side and about 50% of them were undercooked. The wine suggested by the sommelier was also mediocre (4-star rating on Vivino; $83 for a $39 retail bottle of wine).

Our waiter was very friendly and provided complementary creme brulee for our anniversary. Total bill (w/ tip) was $400.

The Met is an iconic restaurant in downtown Seattle and definitely worth experiencing at least once; however, in my opinion, Seattle has other, superior culinary options for much less than $400.

We chose the Met for my Mom's 85th Birthday on 10/12/2018. The food was excellent, be sure to try the flash fried Artichoke Hearts and Calamari for appetizers. The steaks were superb, as was the King Salmon. The service here is impeccable. Truly a memorable dinner, and a must for anyone from out of town.

The food was excellent and the presentations lovely, but the prices were so over the top. I think you can get just as good a steak at Ruth's Chris or Morton's for a less pricey tag.

I wish I could remember our server's name. She was great! She was engaging, funny and helpful. We took our in-laws for dinner - the couldn't stop talking about the experience. The Busser was also engaging and helpful. The last time before this we were at the Met - I felt it was bit "stogie" but the vibe this time was great. Good job Met!

Best service in Seattle! We had amazing wine and dinner, and the service was out of this world. Scott B was fantastic and we were lucky to be seated in his section. He knew every wine on the menus and ensured we had the perfectly paired wine. There isn’t a better dining experience to be had!

We had a poor experience. Expensive as expected, however, the food was overrated and cold. Manager did a nice job of corresponding with us, but still disappointed considering how “hyped “ this place is. I’ll take Steak 44/48 anytime!

We had the pleasure of visiting the Metropolitan Grill on 3 occasions during our recent trip to Seattle - that is how much we love this place. The food is simple but done to perfection. By far the best steak in Seattle. The service is also excellent. We would fly back to Seattle just to have the pleasure of dining there again!

One of our steaks was way over cooked at at $75 a steak, that is unacceptable. Mine was perfect but my husbands was medium well when he ordered medium rare and it was almost burnt on one side. We also ordered the lava cake, which was delicious but also over cooked, zero lava!

Every time we visit Seattle we dine at the Met Grill. Best steakhouse in the Pacific Northwest, if not the western United Sates. The preparation, quality of the food and presentation is consistently excellent. And the long time members of the staff really go out of their way to make you feel at home and your dining experience flawless.

I had my 2nd year anniversary dinner last night and let me tell you, this place is amazing. Craving steak? Go to the Metropolitan grill! The steaks are a piece of heaven on Earth. The service is second to none. Our steak-ologist server Bruno really took care of us. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. You can tell he loved his job. All I got to say is, "go to the Metropolitan grill!".

The food was great as expected however, our waiter waiter can off as “too good for us”. Which was disappointing because the first time we came in our waiter was wonderful and helpful. I was not aware a true ceasar salad comes with anchovies and when I questioned it he made me feel embarassed. I politely said I did not want the anchovies and he proceeded to act annoyed. The other people at the table noticed this and one of them was an out of state guest.

I had a lunch reservation for 12:15 that I booked online. It was very easy to see availability and reserve a table. I had to wait about 10 minutes before my table was ready which is not usually my experience when I have a reservation. The hostesses did not offer to take my jacket which was not a big deal as they were very busy but I did notice a little less attention than they typically provide.
The table was right next to the kitchen but I guess that is better than sitting in the bar. The server was really professional and likeable. I did have to flag him down for an extra condiment as he was also busy with the lunch rush. The food was wonderful! I had the pastrami melt which I will have again on my next visit.
