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 love eating at local steak houses when we travel! This was by far one of the best meals we had while in Seattle! The service was impeccable, food was incredible, and the experience overall was fantastic!

The waiter was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable, and had many recommendations. The food was fantastic - the steaks were extremely flavorful and very tender, and the Mac and cheese was incredible. Overall, an excellent experience and we will be back for sure.

The service was outstanding. The ambiance has changed with the covid-19 limitations, but staff provided their customary professional and attentive service. Safety protocols were in place to provide a feeling of security. The food was excellent. The restaurant is now adding a 20 percent service charge to the bill; I don't recall that from prior visits.

Superb food and seamless service during COVID. These guys are a model for dining in during the pandemic. But be prepared for a much more sedate ambiance than before with widely spaced tables, and many less people. And those special dishes that were served table-side are no longer. The menu is more limited, too. Let none of that deter you, because the joint still remains an absolute joy.

As always, the Met delivers on some of the best steaks you can find in the Seattle area, while making us feeling safe while dining. Service was top notch, with a few changes in light of Covid. For example, we refilled our wine glasses ourselves, menus are paper based (but you can get the extended version using a convenient QR code), and of course bar sitting is not available.

The Met has a great 2 for 1 promo on their website and my wife and I decided to take advantage. Our res was for 4p and we were on time and promptly seated. Jim was our waiter and gave us excellent service. Here were the ‘Bests’ we had: Best Manhattan, Best Waygu filet, Best fried Brussels sprouts. We also enjoyed massive baked potatoes and Bananas Foster for dessert. We’ve eaten at many high-end restaurants and The Met always puts a smile on our faces! Definitely worth a try if you haven’t already. We’ll be back for sure!

The steaks were phenomenal but at$110 a piece I would hope so. I was disappointed at the sides. The scalioed potatoes are classic dishes and it was though they tried to fancy it up and added jalapenos. Somethings just need to remain classic. The desert menu was basic and I think I expected more. That is an area that could use a little update. But back to the feature of the filet. I am still dreaming about it. They were perfectly prepared, seasoned to taste the natural flavors of the beef. Absolutely delicious!

Let me start by saying that our waiter Aaron and our bus boy Scott were amazing. My wife and I have been coming here for over 20 years every time we visit Seattle. Their food has always been excellent. The steaks are always cooked at a perfect temperature and the flavors are always spot on.
But in this new era of restaurants thinking they can make up wage increases by implementing a service charge the metropolitan grill has won the prize for over compensating. To my surprise when the bill came and Aaron explained to me that there was a 20% service charge I just about lost it. Because the service charge wasn't even going to Aaron and Scott, it was for the company's profit to pay their employees above average benifits and supposedly year end bonus. And if we wanted to tip our server they would receive all of it, well good for MG to be so generous. This will be the last time i dine here and i will be reposting this review on every site i can, so that futre patrons are aware of this ridiculous 20% robbery.

We had a very nice meal for our anniversary dinner. Service staff are all experienced professionals who make you feel welcome and well taken care of. There was a mix up with our sides originally, but the staff corrected the error in under five minutes. And the restaurant treated us to a complimentary dessert to share for the occasion. My only gripe is that I do wish there was less confusion regarding the 20% service charge many establishments in the Seattle area (including this one) have put in place to offset an increased minimum wage. Does any of that charge go to the service staff beyond their base compensation- or should I be forking out an additional percentage? It puts a sour note on the tail end of an otherwise lovely evening when you’re sitting with a bill wondering whether declining to pay 30 to 40% over your bill is effectively stiffing someone who just spent an hour and a half waiting on your needs. This isn’t a burden diners should have to bear. I wish area restaurants would just raise their menu prices. I don’t know why, but it feels like less of a conundrum that way.

The best steakhouse in Seattle and some of the best steak I have eaten. The wine selection was vast and the table side chateaubriand was fantastic! The staff were very friendly and attentive to detail. I didn’t have to ask for anything because they staff were always on top of it. The best service I’ve received in a while. For dessert, the burnt cream was a must get.
