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.

Service was impeccable start to finish. Sommelier was very helpful in picking wines suitable on our price range. And the food is superb. This steak house has a great vibe but is very expensive so don’t go if you’re on s budget

The food at The Met was amazing! We visited for my fiance's birthday dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We tried the wagyu filet, lobster mac & cheese, and bananas foster. It is expensive but worth it!

This was our first time at the Metropolitan Grill! We were celebrating our anniversary and a birthday. The waiter was so kind in explaining the menu and took time to answer our questions. Every person on staff was polite and kind. The food was amazing and worth the price. At the end of our meal our waiter brought out a dessert with a candle in it for our two special occasions. Overall, the night was magical.

The Metropolitan Grill serves the best prime rib I have ever eaten, bar none. The ambiance is traditional, old school Seattle. It is a treat to go there.

My only complaint is that even though my family and I were on time for our reservation and very well dressed, the hostess seated us in the worst table right next to the front door. I think she did this because we had our children with us (who are extremely well behaved and eat off of the adult menu). I watched people come into the restaurant wearing sweat pants, ripped jeans and ball caps and all of them were given better tables than us. In retrospect I should have requested a better table. Next time I won't accept the discrimination.

We are both Seattle(ites) born and raised in the metropolitan area. The Met Grill is the first place we think of when we want to celebrate a special occasion. They are known for their famous cuts of meat however their salmon and other seafood dishes are exceptionally delicious. Whether you're set on an awesome cut of meat or you're more of the seafood type you won't be disappointed. Eating at the Met Grill is a dining experience you won't forget!

I took my three kids for a nice dinner out after a swim meet nearby. I had been there for a business lunch but had never had dinner. All the kids were very excited to go. They are 19, 16, and 7 and all enjoyed it. Everyone loved their food and the service was outstanding. We all had different dishes, halibut, steak, salmon, and a plain hamburger :). For dessert we had the Apple pie and that was an experience and was also delicious! Several people came to check on us to ensure we were taken care of and the waitress was amazing.
