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.

We were there to celebrate my daughter’s birthday and requested a window view. We were sat in a back area at a table with other guests nearby. Waitress a little too chatty. Food excellent.

This restaurant means a $300 dinner for two. That's my estimate for the works--salad, entrée, some wine, dessert, coffee and tip. Everything about the menu and the service are outstanding--for a price. You come here for the steaks, with a huge selection. Arguably, the best red meat in Seattle. Other entrees are available, but who cares? I had the "Delmonico Prime," bone in for $74, and my wife had the 8-oz. fillet for $62.

Dinner was very good. Not EXCEPTIONAL as I have had during prior visits. We were treated very well and certainly appreciated the complimentary desserts for my friends celebrating their birthdays.

The food took too long to arrive at the table. When the food was served it seemed as though it had been sitting. The potatoes were like glue and the steak would have been much better served sooner.

As always the metropolitan grill delivered on its promise of great steaks. One of seattle’s Best steakhouses. The appetizers, sides, and desserts were also good with some seasonal additions to their standard favorites. The wine selection was sooooo good. The selections the wine steward made for our group made everyone happy. Wish we could've enjoyed another bottle of the bottle from Seven Hills but our waitress, Marla, kept us on schedule to get to the musical on time. Marla was the best. She’s been working there for 38 years and knows everything, plus she is thoughtful, and keeps you on schedule making it all seem effortless. Our family has gone to Metro Grill over the years and we will absolutely keep going there.

I do feel that the restaurant is overrated. It has been an iconic place in Seattle but it has lost its charm. Service has definitely dropped in years. We were greeted warmly at the door by the door man. There was coat service but none provided. There was confusion whether tables were ready when there was a reservation made and only a half an hour into opening. The server tried to make small talk and name drop of all the people who has dined there to accentuate the place. It took over an hour for the main course to arrive. No explanation whatsoever. We mentioned that we had another event to catch and offered our card. The server took the card and of course forgot about bringing back the tab. Overall it was a disappointment. Price is hefty but the food didnt match it. It wasnt worth to mention to others back home. It was overrated and recommend other places to dine for special occasion or when visiting Seattle.
