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.

Not impressed by service. We brought a guest for his first time. No introduction, no explanations of types of steaks, in fact she rushed us, didn’t offer specials, and we were back by kitchen area. So many steak houses in Seattle. My fave restaurant just lost a forever customer.

It was my husband’s request for his birthday. We had a dinner at 6pm on Saturday. Our server was McKenzie who was very welcoming and comfortable to talk and ask any questions that we had. He totally made my husband’s birthday night special.
We definitely want to come back to say hello to McKenzie soon again! Our steaks Chateaubriand were cooked medium rare perfectly. The sides mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables were also large portions and very tasty. We made a reservation a week ahead and seated right away. By the time we were done and came out from dining, there were a long line in front of the restaurant.
Overall the experience last Saturday was perfect. My husband was very happy.

Quality of cuts was top notch. Wait staff very attentive. Table next to us became a bit boisterous and waiter came whispered something to shut it down immediately. Keeping those around them continuing to have a nice evening out.

Pretty straight forward steakhouse. Server was nice, was glad that they had a creme brulee for my wife's birthday. Unfortunately, my wife didn't enjoy the night, so that kind of made everything else moot. She was disappointed that the majority of other guests were dressed casually (some in jeans and tshirts), whereas she had hoped for a quiet, classy evening. Not the restaurant's fault at all (hard to implement and enforce a dress code nowadays), but it is what it is.

. Our service was fantastic and the wine selection superb. I had a bone-in filet and my friend had a rib eye. They were cooked perfectly to medium rare as we requested. I like that you can get a half bottle of wine without having to buy an entire bottle, particularly since my friend was drinking red and I was drinking white. The appetizer we shared of Coconut Prawns was excellent. The older woman who was our waiter could not have been nicer and took good care of us.

Thank you Met for a great dinner.

The Met is a legend...and old grand dame of a steakhouse. The food is extremely well done, although don’t go expecting new age, modern takes. These are the old standards, and they are great. What you pay for here, is the service, which is fantastic. The wine list, which can scarcely find an equal, and the ambience, which takes decades to develop. If you want an all-American, classic, high end steakhouse experience, this is the one in Seattle.

The visit was a nice surprise, as they had more "walls" removed, and it made it easier to have a business chat. The food was delicious, as it always is, the server was very good. The only minor compliant was my business guest ordered an Ice Tea, and we never saw it. Guest didn't want to complain, so just drank water. Still a great place for a business lunch!

Great Food, spectacular service. The menu was very easy to navigate. Our waitress was extremely helpful with her suggestions. The prime cut beef was cooked perfectly. The wine list was fantastic and the dessert menu was simple yet perfectly executed. This was my second time dining and it did not disappoint. Cheers Seattle

Our dinner was for an anniversary celebration. We had rack of lamb and it was prepared to perfection. The service was excellent,as our waitress was attentive without being obtrusive. She made several suggestions about ordering the degree of doneness for our entre and pairing appropriate side dishes. To top off the meal she served a dish of creme brulee on the house to help celebrate our more than 50 years of marriage.

We only had 1 night in Seattle to dine and The Metropolitan Grill was highly recommended by friends and our concierge. We are so glad we took their advice! The food and service were wonderful! Diane was great! Also nice upon leaving there were town cars waiting to drive you for a flat $10 rate. The taxi there was $8 so it was an easy choice to get back to the hotel.

This was my first time there. The entire experience was fantastic. The service was great, our server very knowledgeable and friendly. Even the busser and water guy we're attentive and helpful. The food was Soo good. Almond crusted scallops were exquisite. Wagyu fillet melted in my mouth. I asked for no butter on anything and the chef accommodated very nicely. Overall, wonderful experience. I will be back.
