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.

The Met is a legend...and old grand dame of a steakhouse. The food is extremely well done, although don’t go expecting new age, modern takes. These are the old standards, and they are great. What you pay for here, is the service, which is fantastic. The wine list, which can scarcely find an equal, and the ambience, which takes decades to develop. If you want an all-American, classic, high end steakhouse experience, this is the one in Seattle.

The visit was a nice surprise, as they had more "walls" removed, and it made it easier to have a business chat. The food was delicious, as it always is, the server was very good. The only minor compliant was my business guest ordered an Ice Tea, and we never saw it. Guest didn't want to complain, so just drank water. Still a great place for a business lunch!

Great Food, spectacular service. The menu was very easy to navigate. Our waitress was extremely helpful with her suggestions. The prime cut beef was cooked perfectly. The wine list was fantastic and the dessert menu was simple yet perfectly executed. This was my second time dining and it did not disappoint. Cheers Seattle

Our dinner was for an anniversary celebration. We had rack of lamb and it was prepared to perfection. The service was excellent,as our waitress was attentive without being obtrusive. She made several suggestions about ordering the degree of doneness for our entre and pairing appropriate side dishes. To top off the meal she served a dish of creme brulee on the house to help celebrate our more than 50 years of marriage.

We only had 1 night in Seattle to dine and The Metropolitan Grill was highly recommended by friends and our concierge. We are so glad we took their advice! The food and service were wonderful! Diane was great! Also nice upon leaving there were town cars waiting to drive you for a flat $10 rate. The taxi there was $8 so it was an easy choice to get back to the hotel.

This was my first time there. The entire experience was fantastic. The service was great, our server very knowledgeable and friendly. Even the busser and water guy we're attentive and helpful. The food was Soo good. Almond crusted scallops were exquisite. Wagyu fillet melted in my mouth. I asked for no butter on anything and the chef accommodated very nicely. Overall, wonderful experience. I will be back.

Overall a very good experience. Our waiter, Lance, gave us exceptional service and friendliness! He even provided an after dinner crème brûlée that was a complete and lovely surprise. Although we had less expensive cuts.of beef, the prime rib and New York strip were unremarkable. Potatoes were huge and tasty.

Celebrated my birthday here with my fiancé, and I was blown away at the exceptional service. Our waiter really catered to our needs and made sure we had a wonderful time. The 10 oz Wagyu Filet Mignon was phenomenal! We also enjoyed the tuna appetizer, garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus, and topped it off with the chocolate lava cake a la mode! Best meal I’ve had in a long time, and well worth the price!

Service was horrible! Waited 45 minutes for our food and when it arrived, only the main entree was hot. All of the sides (potatoes and vegetables) were cold. Needed to ask for water to be refilled several times. Sadly, the restaurant did not appear to be that busy.

Menu a little uninspired, but it is, after all, a steak house. But both my husband's steak and my prime rib were overcooked. I would have sent them both back if we weren't guests. But they have a detailed descriptions of degrees of doneness, and certainly a steak house should be able to get this right without the customer having to make a call.
