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.

Everything about the Met is always wonderful. One of the best steak houses I’ve ever been to. A bit spendy but well worth it. They cook steak to perfection. Lemon drops are also great.

Best steak I've ever had! I splurged and tried the Hokkaido filet mignon. Comfortable, upscale setting with outstanding service. Easy to have engaging conversations. Great lighting where you can actually see your food! Next time I'll use the valet parking.

I was visiting my daughter in Seattle and meeting her boyfriend for the first time. They both turned 21 a few weeks ago. Everything was fabulous, the steaks were marbled so well that every bite just melted in your mouth.

The experience was fantastic, just as I remembered it. And their steaks are still the best in the world.......the wine selection was the best.......we enjoyed some Cote Bonneville Carriage House and it was probably the best wine I've ever had.........all my out of town friends agreed, it was the best experience they had ever had !!

This is one of the best all-time dining venues in Seattle. You can NEVER go wrong here.
All of the food preparations are delicious with fresh ingredients. The clam chowder is the best... comforting and dessert-like!!! But, it is the service which shines here... many of the servers have been here for years and they know what to do and when. Never have our iced tea glasses become empty. This is a place to go with someone who is special. It is worth it in every way.

Great old school steakhouse with all the traditional trappings that go along with these types of places. I washed down a beautiful bone-in ribeye with a delicious Amarone, then headed out to SeaTac for a redeye back to the east coast. Slept like a baby on that plane. What a way to end a great Seattle business trip!

Everything is great except when we’re about to pay the waitress that is showing us how to do it on the tablet automatically hit the tip button, without asking us if that is the right amount we wanted to give. Resulting for us to pay a higher amount than we expected.

Service was outstanding, our anniversary celebrated with an on the house dessert. We started with calamari, which was outstanding. Split the prime ribeye and a small lobster. The steak had great texture, but was FULL of fat and lacked flavor. The lobster was dry, tough and tasteless. Garlic mashed potatoes were great. Including one cocktail each, our bill came to nearly $200 - not including the tip. Such a disappointment, as we've brought out of town family and friends there on numerous occasions - not up to our usual experiences.

My husband and I were in Washington for our Anniversary. I found the Metropolitan Grill on our final stop for our Anniversary Dinner. It was rated at one of top spots to eat in Seattle.

My husband is a big steak and seafood guy. Back home in DC, the Capital Grill is his go to spot. I do not eat red meat...or seafood, but being a very special night, I decided to give steak a go!

The ambiance of the Metropolitan was very laid and bright and I very much enjoyed this. They greeted us warmly and took our reservation right away, along with our coats.

Unfortunately, I think we got probably the very worst waiter in the restaurant. And my husband grumbled about him all night long. He did not explain the different cut of meat, the menu, or offer any service to write home about. We longed at the other tables and their wait staff wishing we were seated anywhere but where we were. The others were bright, enthusiastic and so detailed about the menu it had you excited about your meal!

However, I will say, the lovely gentlemen who explained the wine menu to us and who made my husband’s Apple crisp made the evening bearable!

Oh, and the food!!!!! Definitely made up for the lack of service. The steaks were cooked to perfection! We started with the onion rings with curry Sauce and finished with carrot cake and apple crisp.

Overall, a wonderful place to eat, if you can get the right service!

So knock it off with the foodie trend dining crap -- put the salt and pepper back on the table and GET RID OF THE ODD SHAPED PLATES. Also please return to the previous bread service -- they dark rolls were excellent.

It is bad enough you got rid of your VIP program.......guess you have to be the ULTA rich now for that......
