We have been to Metro many times for Brunch, Lunch and Dinner. This was family dinner - they put us in the main dining room near the fire. Very nice. Round table for six. Service was excellent, the food was great - some of the dishes we liked were the ribeye steak, mary's chicken, and the sausage rigatoni. Friendly and professional and highly recommended.

We had been given a gift card from this nearly local restaurant and had never used it. What a mistake as it will now be on our circle of dining choices. On a warm weekend day we dined on the expansive and shelter patio. The size is misleading as there were at least fifty other diners and yet we felt alone and comfortable so as not to hear or share our conversations. The prompt service was well received. The menu choices were sufficient to allow for all types of diners to find a delicious selection. We started with a super spicy bloody Mary and it came as ordered in a foot tall glass. The goodies inside or across the top made the drink an art piece. The drink was well received. My dining partner had fish tacos and they were excellent. The item I enjoyed was the Thai green curry salad. It also was an art piece. Delicious would be an understatement. Our selection of the cheesecake with rhubarb reduction ended a perfect late lunch. Staff are attentive and well groomed, The patio was clean and well laid out with sufficient shade from multiple large umbrellas. We are already planning to return but with friends who we wish to introduce this wonderful dining choice.

The relax atmosphere of this restaurant is good for family, couples, or solo

I have been here twice and the food and the service are excellent. We love theMetro Benedict on Acme toast with Zoes’s ham, poached eggs, potato galette & hollandaise;
and Grilled Wild Fish Sandwich with mango chutney, red chile mayonnaise & fries(garlic fries).

I was with friends in Lafayette and didn't realize the time. It was after 4pm and we had not had lunch. We were already in the shopping center where Metro is located. We did a quick check on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. It was a cool day (55F - well it is California!) and the fire was very welcoming. This is a big casual restaurant with modern décor and a large outdoor area. Being as it was before 5 the place was almost empty but began to fill up as we progressed through dinner creating a warmer atmosphere. There was a fixed price menu which included a glass of wine so for 2 we added another appetizer and a drink and we were all set. The ingredients were fresh and well prepared and presented. the service was good and the prices moderate given that this is Lafayette. I will definitely return on a warm Spring or Summer evening to take advantage of the extensive outdoor seating.
