We called slightly ahead for a party of 9 on a Sunday morning for brunch and were told to come right over, so we did. 6 Adults and 3 young children. We were seated in a relatively quiet location. The decor was way better than a diner usually has. They have a special menu too--but I asked if the Turkey... More

This is not your typical diner (even though it's called an American diner and bar); so don't let the name prevent you from trying this pleasant place to dine with friends, family, and/or work colleagues. All five of us were able to comfortably sit in the cozy booth without distractions from other diners. (Hopefully, WE weren't distracting to others!) We... More

Stopped by with some friends on a Saturday night. We made reservations but still had to wait 30 minutes. The menu was extensive and included all day breakfast. They also offer table appetizers and individual appetizers. Serving sizes are big but the drink menu is small. Service was excellent if not a little to attentive.

Sunday morning we were coming back from Philly and decided to stop in for breakfast. We loved the decor, service and food! The wait staff was very professional, the food was fresh and delicious! They surprised us with warm fresh muffins while we waited for coffee. Enjoy breakfast all day if you like or many other options. We look forward... More

2 couples Passing though the city on a road trip. We got seated on the lounge side, started out with one server, who was actually the bartender and the only person working at the time. Took our drink orders, which took long to make because he was the only one there. Then came back and took our food order. After... More

It had been about two years since we had dinner at the Metropolitan Restaurant. The last visit was disappointing. This time, the quality of the food was better - average. Service was very good. Friendly and attentive. They have an extensive menu at very reasonable prices. We want to try their Sunday brunch. By the way, they serve breakfast all... More

Visited here with family from out of town looking for cuisine that would please a bit of everyone and wasn't disappointed. Both service and food were rather good. Enough so that I'll definitely give it another try when I'm in the area. Really one of the better updated "diner" menus I've seen with plenty of interesting options.

Menu is varied and extensive. Not fancy. Lots of sandwiches and salads. Entrees too. Service is friendly and attentive. Atmosphere is casual. Food is average. Good but not exceptionally notable.

Fabulous menu at great prices. They have both small plate servings, as well as full plate servings and serve breakfast all day. The small plate servings are still fairly large portions. Our server was fantastic, making very good recommendations when asked and anticipating drink refills. The food was wonderful!!!! It served American style food, but each item seemed to have... More

Bad, very bad. I asked for home fried potatoes, didn't get them. No apology - what came out was so horrible - obviously put in the french frier (clearly as there were french fries mixed in). So greasy I couldn't eat them and wasn't asked why I hadn't, when they were taken away...

Hi BBBBTravel, Thank you for dining with us last weekend and for taking time to post your review. I appreciate your honesty and you are quite correct, we did have to co mingle our fryer that we generally only cook french fries and sweet potato fries because one of our three fryers had a faulty high limit switch that prevented...
