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.

Seems like a great old Seattle girl.
We started with the scallops which were mediocre, however the beef and the service were very good.
Oh, and they had our cocktail down perfectly!

What a fun place to visit and experience! The cocktails were out of this world amazing and so was the steak. Come prepared to spend a fair amount of money (Doubtful you could walk away spending less than $150 per person) but it's a wonderful treat.

The steak truly melted in my mouth - I was in heaven. I had never had steak tartar but it was bursting with flavor. I can't wait to have it again!

The ambiance was perfect - swank 1920s feeling. Service was great, our needs more than met.

Service was amazing. Server (wish I got his name) knew everything off the menu without a notebook to write on. he knew the sides, drink menu, and also surprised my girlfriend and I with a creme’ brûlée to celebrate our anniversary :) would totally come back to dinner here for a special occasion.

I was expecting an extraordinary dining experience. It was not. It was less than expected by a large margin. The noise level was the first disappointment. It was too loud. The service was adequate with just a bit of a longer wait than I would have wanted. The food was good but nothing exceptional. I was especially disappointed in the house cabernet.

A simple, but outstanding, lettuce salad with a remarkably good, creamy dressing, started our meal on a high note, preceded by a good Manhattan. Our shared T bone was very well cooked and expertly divided between us at table by a waiter who clearly knew his craft. Side dishes very satisfying, with the creamed spinach particularly noteworthy. We felt we had had slightly better marbled and flavorful aged, prime steaks from our butcher, and wished, since this is not a cheap evening, that perhaps we had gone for an even more expensive cut, but it was still above average. Sommelier gave us excellent advice on a great Italian wine form the lengthy, wine list, well within our preferred price range. Desert was shared: a well-made flourless, chocolate concoction. All in all, a very good meal and dining experience.

I'd never been to the Met - my husband chose it for Mother's Day and my Law School graduation, which happened to be the same day. Three months prior, I made reservations for 6 people at 6:00 pm, and noted the celebrations on my table. When we arrived, we were escorted to a table for 10. Only 5 of us were able to actually attend - one had a last-minute cancellation - so, we ended up being 5 people at a banquet round for 10. We spent the two hours there, not able to hear what anyone else at the table was saying (that was just the accoustics, nothing to do with the baby which screamed next to our table for 3/4 of our time at the Met - that was just unlucky). The food was quite good. The service was good until the entrees arrived, at which point our server, and all other staff, forgot we existed. My husband really talked up the Met, as have many others, so it was very disappointing to have this experience for such a meaningful celebratory event.

Steak was very good as always but the Coconut cake was overpowering and not a good match for my taste. Also surprisingly my Martini was not to my taste either with way too much Vermont.

We had a wonderful time here, a big part of that because of our amazing waiter, Victor. He made the experience for us and any time I return I will make a point to ask to sit in his section. There are many places one can get good food, but not many where the entire experience is worth the trip. Coming here, with the old school ambiance, excellent food and interacting with Victor makes the Metropolitan Grill worth the trip.

It was my B-day on Saturday the 4th and I invited 8 friends to join me @ the Met to sit in the Bar and have dinner. The server in the Bar had to many tables and I know from my resturant experience working in fine dining that we should have had our dedicated server or managment should have had his back. It was a long time for our between visits (only b/c he had to many tables) for drinks and for our dinner order to be taken. One of dinner was ice cold and I asked for horse radish on 2 occasions 1st time with the seafood sampler and the 2nd time with my prime rib dinner only never to make it to the table.
I love your resturant and was truly dissapointed in the entire experience. Thank you

Overall it was a great experience. I had received a $250 gift card to MG for my birthday and my wife and I decided to make a trip into Seattle for a special dinner. We had predetermined that we wanted to try the chateaubriand, substituting creamed spinach and Yukon Gold potato cakes as sides. Our waiter, Bruno, who was outstanding, suggested the almond-crusted scallops as an appetizer. The scallops were the best we've ever tasted, and the chateaubriand, carved tableside, was memorable. The sides were just OK. The ambiance was friendly and fairly elegant, and the noise level, though not whisper-quiet, was fine for normal conversation. I had two glasses of The Devil You Don't Know syrah (also Bruno's suggestion) and my wife had one. We shared the Hot Apple Pie for dessert. We hadn't paid close attention to the prices, so we were a little surprised that the $250 didn't quite cover the meal and gratuity, but we'll definitely return for a special meal in the near future.

Wonderful dining experience. Impressive choice of beef cuts - the Cap Top is amazing. Accompaniments quite good as well, with old favorites and creative choices. One of the best places I know for a properly-made cocktail. Restaurant has a legacy feel to it, yet in a comfortably-modern way. Service as good as I've ever experienced.

Thursday lunch was busy! Great, lively buzz and obviously, after many years, Met Grill is still a go-to lunch spot. The steak salad was delicious, with a generous portion of perfectly cooked steak sliced up on top of fresh, tasty greens and tangy blue cheese. The kind of salad that you crave a few days afterwards and want to go back and eat it again. Daily special was beef stroganoff, a tasty and ample serving of tender meat and creamy sauce with the depth of flavor coming from mushrooms and onions. Delicious comfort food. The service here is absolutely top-notch. It's an easy spot to love and return to. Thank you for a great mean and a great experience.

The food was amazing and our waiter was awesome! We had ordered the Hokkaido Beef steak and it was as tender as I had imagined it to be. Our waiter was very helpful and was on top of things like getting us refills or periodically checking in on us. This was our first time dining at the restaurant and we had gone on my birthday, which made my experience even more enjoyable.
