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.

This is a Seattle institution. Great for a steak meal - very high quality beef, interesting menu choices, including plenty of non-beef options, and a nice place to treat business colleagues. I don't eat beef often, and when I do, I want this kind of quality. I recommend the steak salad for lunch - the protein portion is generous and a good cut. Nice for lunch without feeling weighed down.

I was told about the Metropolitan Grill and thought it sounded like a great steak-house. I was pleasantly surprised that it was So Much more than that! The food was exceptional - the beef was outstanding and cooked to perfection, the scampi were large and had a mesquite flavor and again were cooked perfectly. Every item from start to finish was over the top and the service took it from great to phenomenal! I travel often and rarely do you get this type of experience - I’d recommend to everyone!

A wonderful dining experience for us and our close friends. We travel together often and really liked the great food. We knew that it was going to be on the upper end of expense but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Great steaks! Service was very good. The Sommelier was very good and even prepared apples flambeau at table side for us. Very well done.

Swanky place with excellent steaks and attentive service. Wagyu Filet Mignon was cooked to perfection - nicely seared and full of flavor. The brussle sprouts tasted well and the Metropolitan Cabarnet proved to be a great pairing. Can't wait to go back.

We love the Met for a special dinner out. The service and dependable quality of the food have kept us coming for years. However, we make it a once a year outing because the expense is so great for a single meal. We love cooking and can come close to, if not match, the same quality at home. We go for the experience, and are never disappointed in that.

Very pricey restaurant but definitely worth it to impress for that special occasion. Stunning encyclopedia of a wine list with the most expensive wines I've ever seen. White-coat, trained servers that gave us good wine recommendation and made sure it was within the budget we were comfortable with. Friendly and very accommodating service. Steaks were all perfectly done. Petit filets were perfect and I could tell the difference between the sirloin and Wagyu. Plating was done nicely as well. One side comes with main meat entree. Both garlic mashed potatoes and roast veggies done very well. Nothing too salty or overcooked. Comfy booth seating. Showstopping (but tad too sweet) desserts. Easy street parking on Sunday dinner. Easy reserving the table.

Overall the experience at The Met is always nice. This time though it seemed we had a slow/inexperienced waiter.

We had to ask multiple times for normal service items (Like sour cream/onions for our baked potato, bread for the table)
Also, there was plenty of wait time between courses. We wanted to order dessert, however we waited about 15 minutes after we were done eating our main courses to even receive our dessert menus. Then we had to wait to order the dessert.
Finally, when our left overs were packaged, we usually get a bag to take them home- instead we just received the boxes without bags.

Food was still good, although my steak seemed more on the medium than the medium rare side. I give this a pass because you should speak up if you don't like it the way it was served. I decided it wasn't over-cooked enough to make a big stink about it and therefore, it was on me.

People choose restaurants like this not just for the food, but the overall consistency in service, presentation, food, experience. From that baseline, i would say this was a less than average experience when i compare it to the many times i've come before.

What Steak House runs out of ribeyes at 6:45pm. Really? Substitute New York Strips were a B+ not an A, which the pricing should have commanded.
