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.

    Great Atmosphere and Excellent Customer Service. Our waiter Mark was amazing! We ordered the Wagyu Meatballs, Top Sirloin, Grilled Shrimp, and a side of Creamed Spinach. Meatballs were tasty with a little kick, Steak was well seasoned and cooked to perfection, Shrimp had a bad fishy taste, Spinach was delicious. Mark took the shrimp off after we mentioned the bad taste. Would try again in the future for HH.

    We had a wonderful date night at the Metropolitan Grill! We ordered a wedge salad to share, French onion soup, Chateaubriand with a baked potato and asparagus with bernaise, and bananas foster for dessert. The table side presentation is always so enjoyable and Craig makes the experience more fun! We had a wonderful server Mike who was prompt with our courses and cognizant of our timing for the Nutcracker that evening. It is always a treat dining at the Met! We will be back again soon!

    Great service from Scott. Nice booth as requested. Only issue was that 2 of the 3 steaks that we ordered arrived cooked incorrectly. We requested medium and the steaks were rare at best. Had to send them back and eat the vegetables while we waited. Came backed cooked correctly, however we expected that a well established steak house would be able to cook the steaks as requested. Once corrected, they were delicious.

    It was our first time eating here. It started out great, every employee was very nice. For some reason our waiter just stopped attending to us and I could hear him conversating with the tables around us. Very disappointed about my experience here. Waited forever for a refill on our drinks and food and the waiter never even bothered to ask how the food was knowing that was our first time there. First and last. Btw, the hybrid steak was very tough from it being 90% gristle. I should've known it was wrong when I was told it's kind of like a hybrid steak. Which was the waiter's recommendation btw.

    The food was good but not great. I have many fond memories of eating here but this last time was just OK. I realize that prices are higher all around but the cost was outrageously high. So pretty good but not great meals at a very high price.

    Old school, top shelf! We always feel extremely well taken care of at the Met. Our waiter was just the perfect mix of funny and attentive, but knew when we needed our space to talk. Excellent steaks, as always! And if you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting the maître de Craig…you’re missing out. The man remembers EVERYTHING, from where your kids are going to school to your last vacation. Top notch!

    The Metropolitan Grill knows steak and pairs top notch beef with classic steakhouse atmosphere and simply perfect appetizers, starters & sides. We stared off with and appetizer that Anthony Bourdain inspired us to try and now never pass up when available: roasted bone marrow on crostini with hazelnut romesco sauce and brilliantly accented with pickled shallots. My wife had the house field green salad; nicely balanced flavors, and I had the sublime Maine Lobster Bisque and fought to restrain myself from simply drinking from the soup tureen. My wife had the most amazing steak dinner of her life: a small but intensely delicious 4 oz Japanese A5 Snow Beef Filet. I enjoyed a chef's menu choice 14 oz bourbon aged striploin. Both medium rare (of course!) and served in complement with simply perfect starch sides for us - the mashed potatoes & the baked potato with all the classic toppings. We had never done a flambeed tableside desert, and seeing the description of the Hot Apple Pie we knew this was the place to try it. Needless to say we were not disappointed. Both the performance and the resulting desert for two were fantastic. No matter what else you may choose for the rest of your meal, we highly suggest ending with the Hot Apple Pie! The staff was polite and attentive from reservation check in & coat check at the host station all through out the meal courses and flambeed tableside desert, paying the bill and coat check out. It was relatively early on a Saturday before a performance at the Paramount and the general manager also stopped by to ask how our meal was. My wife and I look forward to dining at The Metropolitan Grill again. Our 26th wedding anniversary is in June. You can be sure I'll be marking my calendar in May to get a reservation as soon as they're available.

    Dining at The Metropolitan Grill was one of those uncommon special experiences. Every aspect of the experience was picture perfect - cocktails in the bar, every food item, the wine recommendation, dessert, and above all that, the service, which was top notch professional, knowledgable, and attentive (without being intrusive). The appetizers and soups were excellent. The steaks were perfect; just beware the degree of "doneness" was less that typical at most restaurants. Those of our party who did not order beef enjoyed excellent seafood entrees. The desserts were no exception; in particular, the carrot cake was "best in class!"

    Juergen (spelling?) was an incredible waiter on 12/1, 9:15pm - reservation for one. The prawn cocktail, so fresh out of the water I was convinced they jumped. Yukon Gold potato pancakes with saffron butter and chives, indulgent and perfectly made. And drumroll… a Black Hawk steak from Kentucky! Wish I had the right words. Every slice was worth making, and every bite clearly worth taking. My meal was excellent, as is your venue, your staff, your timing, and most importantly, your food. Thank you for setting the bar for steakhouses in Washington, even AMER.

Steve made me a fantastic Manhattan, so good I had a second one instead of wine with my meal! We finished our evening with Banana's Foster flamed at our tableside, a show with our dessert!

    The food absolutely amazing! The steaks were cooked perfectly, the appetizers were delicious especially the calamari, and the bananas foster was so warm and sweet. It was awesome. The pricing was all I had an issue with, with the same service and quality of food half the price in other restaurants. But the Met lives up to its reputation for the friendliness of all the staff, and the ambiance of the restaurant itself. Will dine here again definitely.

    Our favorite spot when we used to live there and when we visit. Steaks were disappointing. Flavor wasn’t there. Bartender warned us a bit that the 42 dry aged steak might be strong, we love dry aged steaks and the nutty flavor/funk that comes with it. For my money I’d bet that the steaks weren’t dry aged at all. Salad delicious Apps delicious Drinks terrific Bartenders awesome

    This is a terrific restaurant. I have nothing negative to say. From the Lobster bisque to the bananas foster, he food was perfect. The ribeye was exactly as advertised “the best steak in Seattle.” I found the prices reasonable considering the preparation, quality, and service at the restaurant. The lobster bisque is worth the trip. It was so very rich but not overly so. I’ll make this a must go the next time I return to Seattle.
