Eight of us had brunch Easter Sunday. We had a very pleasant time. The staff was excellent! The service was excellent! For the most part the food was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meal except me. I ordered the tri-tip with chipotle hollandaise sauce. The sauce was a big miss. Don't know what possessed the chef to come up with... More

I've eaten here several times, again last evening. The food has always been so good! Last night I got the sole with mashed potatoes and steamed spinach. Delicious! Three others got the croque monsieur and one the gnocci. All was very good. The brussel sprout appetizer is incredible. I hope to eat here many more times.

Great culinary skills, service and a crowd pleaser. There's outdoor and indoor dining and a bar area. I prefer the outdoor when it's warm. The bar area does get noisy and full around dinner time. The owner has been there every time I've gone for dinner, making sure everything runs smoothly and customers are satisfied. That's important in fine dining... More

Metro never disappoints. Occasionally a server forgets about you, but that's no big deal. There are enough people running around that you can get what you need. The menu is diverse, offering many options from which to choose. At our lunch this week one of the specials was a lobster sandwich, with bacon, tomato, and lots of good things. The... More

Metro has a good menu with a lot of tasty choices. Their soups are always good. The crab salad is one of our favorites. Also recommended: crispy chicken sandwich, fish tacos, fish and chips, steak salad, bruschetta, crispy Brussels sprouts... we've eaten here many times for years and are never disappointed. Friendly service, too.

Every time I eat here there is a birthday (womens) party going on on the patio or by the fire. I LOVE the food here. It's wonderful and the service is tops!

I came here with friends for drink and ordered some light food. My drink was good and I liked it. Metro wasn't cheap it was expensive for me. But enjoyed my food and my drink

The service was inattentive to say the least. Lots of waiters standing around ignoring us. I made the reservation through Open Table but never received the Open Table credit. The food is mediocre or maybe slightly less than mediocre. The wine, the same. Getting ripped off for the Open Table credit is the icing on the cake to insure I'll... More

I would actually give 3.5 stars here if that was possible.... good for sure but not great. It was a mild evening and we sat out on the patio which was lovely. Restaurant was not too crowded and service was fine. The Caesar salad was tasty - I would get that again. We also had a few of the appetizers... More
