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.

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......

Over all a great experience. I would recommend making a reservation, we were there for about two hours. I feel like an open table there would be hard to come by if you were to just walk in.

Took my kids out to dinner. OMG. This was our second visit. This is THE place for steak in Seattle. Seattle’s version of Maestro’s or Delmonico’s. I had the raw oysters. Briny and meaty. Need I say more? The girls shared the teriyaki sirloin bites which my 9 year old gobbled up. My 18 year old inhaled the Japanese tartare. Per the suggestion of Phai, our server, my 9 year old ordered the sirloin from the kids menu at about a fifth of the cost of the adult version. I had the king crab legs and my 18 year old ordered the filet on bone with peppercorn sauce in the side. Everything was spot on in terms of prep and flavor. Couldn’t fault anything. Service, ambiance and food were excellent. Reminds me of the old school steak places. Great food with warm friendly service. Thanks for a lovely and satisfying meal.

We love the metropolitan grill - it is exactly what it is supposed to be and what others have tried to imitate - a classic american steakhouse. Do the filet sampler - a great way to try different beef and to really appreciate the variance in flavors and texture. The dungeness crab cocktail is simple and delicious. The bananas foster fall flat, you are better off with their chocolate cake....

We had a wonderful dinner at The Met on Friday night, we were seated right away for our reservations and started the meal off with a wonderful Pear/Lemon drop along with a beer for my husband. The Crab Cocktail was delicious. Then we both had some very delicious French Onion Soup and Clam Chowder. The Filet Mignon cut like butter and the Cajun Blackened Prime Rib was seasoned wonderfully. We topped off our meal with some Bananas Foster and Champagne. A great evening and we will definitely be back!

Although the service was exceptional and the food was very good, for the cost of the meal the noise level was more like a bar. The pricing is way too high for more than a special occasion. I've been in places with better (quieter) atmosphere for a more reasonable price. We truly enjoyed the service and food but won't go back.
