“Best steak in Seattle, lived up to its billing”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

The service was above professional, the decor outstanding and the grub will go down in folklore as legendary. Of note the 50oz "Met, longbone ribeye"; makes me salivate thinking about how tasty it was. When hungry for a true steak, make time to for a dining experience at the Metropolitan Grill in Seattle.

“Food is wonderful, informal”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

I personally find the Metropolitan a little too informal, but the food is quite good. The last time I was there, though, I thought it was too expensive for a place where you sit on wooden benches and there are no tablecloths. I'd like to see them charge less if they're going to let screaming-meemy children sit in the booth next to yours, while you eat your excellent steak. Great wine cellar, too. So, the food and the service are excellent, but the ambience is what could be improved.
