“could do better..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

I went with some friends to the Metropolitan for dinner and ended up quite disapointed. The attempts to recreate Japanese dishes or ingredients is a complete failure. The French fries had a taste of "old oil". My main was ok, I had black angus filet steak, nothing amazing.
The restaurant just reopened from August break, it might be why it was a bad night.

“Truly the best meal we had in Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

We had the tasting menu and it was one of the best food experiences of my life. My partner and I had 6 fantastic courses that never seemed to disappoint. Lovely atmosphere, great wait staff, and amazing food!

“Neither here nor there”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2011

Priced like a top rated restaurant. Serves good quality food but without any feature of creativity or quantity to warrant such pricing. Very attentive service, trying to do well, but needing more training. The fixed price lunch menu is somewhat adequately priced. But it offers absolutely no alternative choice. Would have a hasardous future if it was not part of a hotel. Cannot find a reason to recommend this place in a city with so many good restaurants.
