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.

Metropolitan Grill is the epitome of hospitality. On top of serving the best steak I've ever tasted, I always leave feeling special and well taken care of as if I were family. Needless to say, The Met is a favorite dining experience unlike no other. Ask for Todd or Bruno when dining for dinner!

It was a Thursday night, and we order prime ribs for 5, over an hour of waiting the food arrived and all the prime ribs were very dry. For the money charged, it was not worth it the waiting and the prime rib itself. Very sad !

My husband and I went for our anniversary and what a meal!! Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection. The best part of our evening was our waiter Todd! If you dine at the Metro Grill make sure to request a table with Todd. His knowledge of the menu and cuts of beef really enhance your meal.

The Met is always or favorite place to celebrate our anniversary. We have kept a date there for 17 years in a row now and it is always spectacular for us. Often with friends, this last time was just the two of us and we serendipitously landed in Bruno's section. A perfect night out!

Went there with my spouse for my birthday...Great location and food....besides the excellent steaks and wine list what I liked about it was the fact we could split a meal and not have shopping bags full of left overs to take home....no extra charge to split a full dinner....yum yum

Your restaurant is such a classic place and maybe I'm old fashioned but the way some of the people dress is so disappointing. We like dressing up whenever we go there because we usually go to celebrate special occasions. Birthdays, anniversaries, etc. but then we look across and we see people dressed in jeans, old t-shirt, and sneakers and we just wonder why it would be too difficult for someone to come in with even just khakis and nice shirt and anything other than sneakers.

This might sound bad but maybe Metropolitan should consider creating a more "formal" and "informal" dining area and sit people accordingly. That way people who don't like to dress up can sit comfortably with others that feel the same way. Also people who like to dress up a little more than others can also enjoy an evening of "fine" dining. I realize that you would never turn money away cause that's not a good business but creating atmospheres for different types of people might be worth trying out.

My first impression was that of a classic old l steakhouse. Lots of dark colors; i.e. dark tables, etc. The first booth I sat in had a seat cushion that was loose and whenever you sat down the cushion would slide towards the center of the table and I would slide with it. I am a heavy set older gentleman and it was quite embarassing to feel like everyone was staring at me while I kept sliding off the seating bench under the table.
I immediately asked the waiter for a new table with chairs and he promptly obliged me. From there on out it was smooth sailing. I had the aged filet mignon and it was so tender......it was like cutting through butter. One of the best cuts of meat I have had in a very long time!
The waiter was also wonderful; you felt like he had been there for ever as his knowledge and confidence made you feel like you were in great hands.

I guess I would say overall we were satisfied but surely not wowed! We were in to celebrate my BD and our expectations were high. We had a cocktail in the bar area before moving to our table. No table linens, silverware and wine glasses had water spots on them. After having scallops , soup and salad they brought our entrees out. We both ordered the fillet sampler medium rare and they were both undercooked. The server removed the steaks and left our hot garnish to get cold.no visit from a head waiter floor manager. I would say the MG did not meet our expectations and did not even compare to our favorite steakhouse in California ( Donovan’s ) we also have better meals at the chain restaurants like Ruth Chris’s and Morton’s. Please know that our check was well over $300 ( including wine and parking)

We celebrated my sister's birthday with an early (4P) dinner feast. Paced ourselves, aware that take-home boxes would be necessary. Servings are large. Grazing is called for. Food is fresh high quality. We shared a delicious crab cake + coleslaw starter plate. Could not eat third crab cake. I choose and relished half of my double (two types) 4oz filet mignon servings. Brought the rest home. Steaks came with a large baked potato, yum. Half was boxed. We shared perfectly cooked asparagus. I highly recommend their White Chocolate Yellow Cake. Another item that was boxed after enjoying some there. Our Server was such a delight! She totally embraced our celebratory spirit and took care of every service need. Her Team was just as lovely and supportive. I'm a FAN. Can't wait for another occasion to make the trip to downtown Seattle's Met. Thanks!

I had a decent 16 ounce ribeye, which was overpriced for the cut. I’ve had better steaks there in the past, and even better at other steak houses in Seattle. My wife have the tenderloin and a lobster tail, and she was very pleased.

Thank You to the Metropolitan Grill for accommodating my party. I had reservations for four, but had an unexpected guest bump our number to five. The staff politely informed me it might take time to accommodate us, but were extremely courteous and helpful. We enjoyed a wonderful meal with excellent service. I ordered my steak medium-rare. It came out medium, but I didn't hold it against the restaurant or send it back. I've eaten here several times and always had perfectly cooked steaks. I assume this was because they were busy with the holiday rush and my steak was still tasty.

We came in with a party of 10 for NYE. Reservations were made in advance. Our waiter repeatedly ignored the group for up to 40 minutes at a time and missed half the table when ordering appetizers. Another large group with a different waiter was seated, ordered, ate, and closed their bill before we even got our food.

We waited for awhile past our reservation time to be seated. It wasn’t so long that we were upset, but it’s hard to find a place to wait inside because the reception area is quite small. That being said, the rest of our visit was delightful.

The valets were very friendly and careful to let me out of the passenger side only when it was safe. The receptionist and coat room staff were very quick to get us checked in and take our coats. We found a small table in the bar after a little bit and as soon as we sat down, a waitress took our drink order and brought the check with our drinks to minimize our wait time. Our dinner server was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, made good suggestions, and was very pleasant.

Our visit was an excellent one and we will be back!

Fantastic steaks!!! The best I've ever had. I had the gold long bone and I never thought steak could be tender and flavorful. Make sure to get it charred. It will run you $230, but the experience is well worth the price. The ohmi wagyu served was also to die for so tender! It was like foie grass the way it melted in your mouth. And the service there with the waiters were phenomenal. They treat you quite well there. I'll definitely go back someday.

We started out at the bar with a drink and appetizer. The bartender was very friendly and provided outstanding service. We were meeting family visiting from another state on a layover. They seated us in a fairly private section enabling us to visit and catch up easily. The service was very good. The steak was a rare type they dont have all of the time. It was a bit tough but tasty. (Havent had the issue here before). Everyone was pleased with their food and service.
