It’s was expensive , waitress missable and had the nerve to grumble that her 18% tip $36.70 was $1.70 short ...I begrudge giving her that I didn’t like the service she gave and she was rude and edgy.

I have visited the Met many times over the last 20 years. I am still learning about what they provide for their customers. It’s been off the menu but just ask the server for the bone-in-fillet or the bone-in-ribeye. These are big, thick, flavorful steaks...More

Had an incredible night at The Met for a birthday celebration. Superb service other than the stuffy sommelier that seemed offended we brought 2 special wines for him to open. We had 3 appetizers, all fantastic, the NY Strip loin and Buffalo filet were superb!

Back again during another in-town vacation... The food was as good this time as with all of our other visits here. My partner had the twin filets, and I had the fish. Both were cooked exactly the way we requested. We still haven't figured out...More
