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.

    Good,but pricey considering a 20 % service charge that goes only to the restaurant and not to the servers or staff Add another 15-20% on top of that to your waiters And you are paying roughly 40 % in service charges which is frankly ridiculous and greedy or don’t tip the waiters

    Our waiter Jim was amazing!! Very personable and made our visit great! We made the mistake of ordering the top sirloin - mine was a little undercooked but I still gave it a shot and found it very tough(my husband told me the same about his later on). Our friends had the MET long bone ribeye and it looked amazing - they said it tasted amazing as well. The Mac and cheese was the best we’ve had, the bread was delicious, the beverages were tasty and an overall good experience. I would go back - I would just order a different steak.

    We were a little disappointed with the appetizer we had calamari and it was a little overcooked because it was all quit rubbery. The flavor wasn't bad. The steaks we had were very good they were cooked to perfection.

    This was amazing, excellent, great spot for my 60th birthday. I was a little surprised, however, when my server told me that the restaurant takes half of his gratuity so it kind of forced me to add more. I don't agree with this practice. They make enough off the cost of the menu items! Extremely expensive but I wanted Wagyu beef!

    First time at MG in a few years. The service was terrific. The food was only so-so. We have had tastier steaks at Daniel’s. The MG steak tasted tough, like a grass fed beef. Sorry to be disappointed. The bill was >$400 for 4 people.

    Been dining here for over a decade, now there's a 20% charge added to every bill regardless of party size "to ensure quality service.. 100% is retained by establishment.." so if you still want to leave your server something you're looking at roughly 50% added to your bill, it's insulting when you're spending $90 on a steak...

    Wow. What a meal. I can say with complete confidence that I have never ate better beef than what I ate at the Metropolitan Grill this evening. Started with the steak tartare appetizer. The beef was the end cuts from A5 Japanese Beef. Delicious. Moved on to the three cut sampler platter of Snow, Olive and Ohmi filets. Unbelievable. I have never ate such wonderful beef before. Spoiled forever now. Juergen gave us great advice and information about the menu prior to ordering. Cocktails were custom orders and were exactly what we wanted. Can’t say enough about the whole experience. 78 page wine list. Will plan ALL future visits to Seattle around availability for dinner at the Met. Best recommendation for a restaurant I can remember receiving.

    The Met is at the top of the list of our favorite restaurants. Food and service has been consistently fantastic for over 30 years. It feels like eating with family due to the large number of long service employees that make us feel special. We are moving 4 hours away but will continue to drive over to Seattle several times a year to keep our tradition going.

    It was the perfect place to eat before attending the Paul McCartney concert 5/3/22! The Valet parking made it very easy to access and it was a short drive to the Climate Pledge Arena. Everyone working there was very friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding and delivered quickly. The atmosphere is elegant and fun at the same time. Highly recommend!

    Great atmosphere and great service. We were not totally hungry as we had our last night and were heading to the airport so had to try as many places as possible. But needed to experience the Metropolitan. Not at all disappointed. We split the Chateaubriand for 2 with 3 of us and a couple of extra sides. Creamed spinach, potato pancakes and the bacon. The sommelier selected a perfect merlot blend (Northstar) at a reasonable price point. Service was impeccable.

    It was a spectacular meal. We ordered the Japanese Wayuu, super juicy and tasty. I loved the support from our sommelier in helping me pick out the best wine based on preferred location (I was dying to try out Oregon wines) and notes. Service was excellent from all the staff, I felt at home. Will keep coming once I visit Seattle again!
