My husband and I went to Metropolitan Grill for our anniversary last week and had a wonderful time. The service was impeccable~ attentive but unobtrusive. Everything from cocktails to desert was well timed and delicious. The Pasko/almond crusted scallops were cooked to tender perfection and the steaks were outstanding! Worth the price in every way.

The meal was great, the best steak I've had in years. The service was impeccable. I don't think my glass of water ever got less than half full. The cocktails were spectacular and made it to the table in a timely fashion. My only qualm about this trip is the noise/commotion. We ate on a Thursday night and the place... More

My friend Mary and I did lunch here around 12:30pm on a Thursday. Place was quite crowded, but we were seated and waited on quickly. Our waiter was super friendly and full of stories about the place. The food is amazing, starting with the local bread and we ordered the appetizer first of scallops with Aioli sauce, almonds, panko crust,... More

My first dinner at Metropolitan Grill for my 50th Birthday. I was quite excited to try this place and I was likening it to an upscale steakhouse such as Capital Grill, Ruth Chris when you consider the price $300 dinner for 2. I had a $30 glass of champagne that was highly recommended and it was very good but not... More

The cajun prime rib is so tender and flavorful once youve had prime rib at the Met you are hooked. Also their spinach salad has the perfect combination of bacon, eggs, almonds and a delicious dressing Try the creme brulee for the dessert its the perfect dessert for two.

First time here and absolutely loved it. Steak was perfect and the baked potato was enormous. Salmon was amazing and filled the plate. The Brussel Sprouts were the best I've ever had. Cream Brulee melted in your mouth. Although the prices are higher than most I feel the quality and quantity of food is definitely worth the price. Can't wait... More

In the past, this has been a reliable place to get a high-end great steak dinner. The last two visits have been disappointing. Food: We had a filet and while it was cooked correctly, the flavor was lacking. It required quite a bit of sauce to be enjoyable. The roasted veggies were not only flavorless, but lukewarm. Service: We have... More
