The Metropolitan Grill
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.

My husband and I love eating at local steak houses when we travel! This was by far one of the best meals we had while in Seattle! The service was impeccable, food was incredible, and the experience overall was fantastic!
Took covid precautions very seriously and only added to the enjoyment of our meal.
The waiter was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable, and had many recommendations. The food was fantastic - the steaks were extremely flavorful and very tender, and the Mac and cheese was incredible. Overall, an excellent experience and we will be back for sure.
The service was outstanding. The ambiance has changed with the covid-19 limitations, but staff provided their customary professional and attentive service. Safety protocols were in place to provide a feeling of security. The food was excellent. The restaurant is now adding a 20 percent service charge to the bill; I don't recall that from prior visits.
Absolutely wonderful! Food was made perfectly and service was amazing! Everything came out within a reasonable time and presentation was lovely. Made our anniversary special!
My favorite steak house. Always a tremendous meal. Highest quality food and service.
Food, service and ambiance was the BEST!
Wonderful service and wonderful food. It was great getting back to eating here. Everything was exceptional.
We always return for the service and food quality, stylish, consistent, great for business dinners.
Superb food and seamless service during COVID. These guys are a model for dining in during the pandemic. But be prepared for a much more sedate ambiance than before with widely spaced tables, and many less people. And those special dishes that were served table-side are no longer. The menu is more limited, too. Let none of that deter you, because the joint still remains an absolute joy.
Excellent service by Bruno.
Establishment takes Covid19 precautions very seriously. No worries at The Met.
Be aware of the 20% surcharge added to bill.
Amazing food, great service, and they are providing a great social distancing service with skipping booths, extra height to their booths, and staggered entrance.
With the Covid stuff going on its sad to see the restaurant at half capacity. No tableside service shows to watch.
Excellent food and service, MG always delights their patrons.
Attentive staff that did not disrupt a meal among COVID-19 isolation buddies.
Awesome personal staff, all very welcoming even before we got seated. Will always come back
The trio was awesome, but the prime was amazing.
As always, the Met delivers on some of the best steaks you can find in the Seattle area, while making us feeling safe while dining. Service was top notch, with a few changes in light of Covid. For example, we refilled our wine glasses ourselves, menus are paper based (but you can get the extended version using a convenient QR code), and of course bar sitting is not available.
So great, celebrating my husband’s Birthday. Never disappointed. Service food and staff, the best in Seattle!
The Met has a great 2 for 1 promo on their website and my wife and I decided to take advantage. Our res was for 4p and we were on time and promptly seated. Jim was our waiter and gave us excellent service. Here were the ‘Bests’ we had: Best Manhattan, Best Waygu filet, Best fried Brussels sprouts. We also enjoyed massive baked potatoes and Bananas Foster for dessert. We’ve eaten at many high-end restaurants and The Met always puts a smile on our faces! Definitely worth a try if you haven’t already. We’ll be back for sure!
As always; impeccable service, food, cocktails & wine. High-end atmosphere, without being stuffy or uncomfortable... will always return to “the Met”.
So happy they were able to accommodate us and make my son’s birthday a truly special occasion!
We took advantage of the special buy one get one entree the Met was offering due to slow business with the virus. We enjoyed our meal immensely as usual and will be back again soon!
Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone about this place!! By far the traditional throwback steak restaurant.
We visited MG for my wife’s birthday. The food the was great and the service was excellent as well.
The service was incredible!
One of our best dining experiences.
Our server was AMAZING!! and we had a great evening.
The steaks were phenomenal but at$110 a piece I would hope so. I was disappointed at the sides. The scalioed potatoes are classic dishes and it was though they tried to fancy it up and added jalapenos. Somethings just need to remain classic. The desert menu was basic and I think I expected more. That is an area that could use a little update. But back to the feature of the filet. I am still dreaming about it. They were perfectly prepared, seasoned to taste the natural flavors of the beef. Absolutely delicious!
Let me start by saying that our waiter Aaron and our bus boy Scott were amazing. My wife and I have been coming here for over 20 years every time we visit Seattle. Their food has always been excellent. The steaks are always cooked at a perfect temperature and the flavors are always spot on.
But in this new era of restaurants thinking they can make up wage increases by implementing a service charge the metropolitan grill has won the prize for over compensating. To my surprise when the bill came and Aaron explained to me that there was a 20% service charge I just about lost it. Because the service charge wasn't even going to Aaron and Scott, it was for the company's profit to pay their employees above average benifits and supposedly year end bonus. And if we wanted to tip our server they would receive all of it, well good for MG to be so generous. This will be the last time i dine here and i will be reposting this review on every site i can, so that futre patrons are aware of this ridiculous 20% robbery.
We had a very nice meal for our anniversary dinner. Service staff are all experienced professionals who make you feel welcome and well taken care of. There was a mix up with our sides originally, but the staff corrected the error in under five minutes. And the restaurant treated us to a complimentary dessert to share for the occasion. My only gripe is that I do wish there was less confusion regarding the 20% service charge many establishments in the Seattle area (including this one) have put in place to offset an increased minimum wage. Does any of that charge go to the service staff beyond their base compensation- or should I be forking out an additional percentage? It puts a sour note on the tail end of an otherwise lovely evening when you’re sitting with a bill wondering whether declining to pay 30 to 40% over your bill is effectively stiffing someone who just spent an hour and a half waiting on your needs. This isn’t a burden diners should have to bear. I wish area restaurants would just raise their menu prices. I don’t know why, but it feels like less of a conundrum that way.
Ohmi steak medium rare was worth every penny. Like buttah. The coconut white chocolate cake was awesome. Scallops good. Calamari meh. Service was great from the doorman to hostess to server. Felt like Chicago.
Great experience and great food!
Definitely the place to take your lady for a fancy night out.
Great food and service! Will definitely be back!
Server forgot many things. Food is always good. His service was just meh. Usually better service. Dinner took almost 3 hours and we had our kid with us.
The best steakhouse and service anywhere in my humble opinion (and I have literally been to 100+ good ones).
Steak was done to perfection. Although we were delayed in getting seated the staff was very comforting and attentive
Food quality was mediocre at best. Not happy about the 15% service charge either.
The best steakhouse in Seattle and some of the best steak I have eaten. The wine selection was vast and the table side chateaubriand was fantastic! The staff were very friendly and attentive to detail. I didn’t have to ask for anything because they staff were always on top of it. The best service I’ve received in a while. For dessert, the burnt cream was a must get.
Had dinner with my wife. Menu is perfect, something for everyone. Service was awesome cant remember my waiters name but was very accommodating. Will be back definitely!
