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.

It was a wonderful environment and setting! The valet was prompt and ready to serve the moment we pulled up, we walked in and our table was ready immediately. Jim was our server and was great! He gave us recommendations and overall made the experience great. Would highly recommend!

Went there for dinner after a Seahawks Monday Night Football game. Shared 3 steaks and 5 sides between six people. Perfect amount of amazing food. Would return and so the same again next time.

For the high price, it just wasn't worth it. The crusted scallop appetizer was small and tasteless. the steak was good - but I expected it to be given the cost. The waitress and bus boy had a tiff going on which was interesting to watch, but probably should have been left in the kitchen. All up, not a great experience and definitely not worth the high price.

Dining room has seen better days. The steaks were full of flavor, but they were served cold. Platings were boring- a piece of meat and a potato with no garnishes. The baked potato and mashed potatoes were both only Luke warm. They were served quickly but just came out of the kitchen like they had been sitting awhile. Not what you expect for $150 per person. Service people throughout were excellent. Food was only disappointment.

We had a casual dinner for five coworkers, reservations were at and early 5:15 pm. The place was not yet hectic. We were sat in a far back corner booth. Waitress made awkward small talk, immediately asking what we did. When we said we did, you could see the dollar signs in her eyes. The up sells were immediate, obvious and awkward. After we rejected the market price crab appetizer she tried pushing on us twice, she neglected us, forgetting a glass of wine, a requested side of horseradish sauce and never asking about our entrees. She did bring a comped glass of wine much later. She poured my bottle of beer at the table....filling the glass with foam. We were going to order dessert and after dinner drinks but refrained when she’d left us alone with our boxed leftovers for over ten minutes. Her support staff made up for her somewhat and were lovely. The food was just okay. My prime rib was poorly seasoned and full of gristle. Brussels sprouts were soggy. The bacon appetizer was interesting but too big and unwieldy, a bit of overkill. Cauliflower was nicely seasoned but unevenly cooked with raw parts in one side and burned on the other. Underwhelming night for such a well known steak house.

MG has a reputation for the best steaks in Seattle. It is well deserved, but MG does have a more extensive menu. I had Prime steak poivre which was excellent. My dinner guest had a bone-in filet mignon....not a good idea. The meat was just fine, but a bone-in filet mignon is a bit of an anachronism. Lobster bisque was very good, but a little devoid of lump lobster meat. My steak went well with the creamed spinach. The server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in selecting the entrees. Clearly a good choice for a special night out dining.

Marla our server was spectacular, we went 2 nights in a row and requested her for the second night because she made the experience even better! The first night we went for drinks and several appies and the second night we did the steak dinners and I have to say every single item of food was pure perfection! We will for sure go back to Seattle just to have dinner here. Thanks Marla!

We went in with very high expectations. We were told this was the best steakhouse in town. Great location and scene, however when you go to a steakhouse the best dishes should not be the sides or the desserts. Most of our parties’ steaks arrived either incorrectly or unevenly cooked. Additionally, pricing here is 1.25x of any comparable steakhouse in New York City. This restaurant is not a “must” but will provide a decent meal in a good atmosphere. Good selection of drinks and meats, but ultimately priced too high without justifying the cost with expert preparation. For example, Capital Grille, provides a similar experience with consistent quality at a much lower cost.

The beef in the French dip is always well done and tough. Only one server has ever asked how I want my meat cooked, and I ordered it medium and it was perfect. Now when I order it, I make it a point to say medium, and it’s always well done. Since it is my lunch hour, I have no time to send it back. Nordstrom Grill’s french dip is much better.
