Amazing steaks!

My husband and I have eaten here for dinner and their executive lunch. It is one of the best meals that I have had in all of Costa Rica. It is delicious, but be prepared to pay for it!!!

Went there with a group of friends for a relaxing dinner. It was nice as usual. Frequently a reservation is required, but not this time. Food continues to be great, but expensive. We spent over $300 for 4 people and just one bottle of their lower priced wines. The wine glasses could be better quality contributing to a better enjoyment... More

My wife and I very much enjoyed this restaurant. Top service and lovely ambiance. Food was very tasty but the Sangria could be better with more Sangria and less fruit. Highly recommend.

I have had the pleasure of dining here on two occasions and I can honestly say that the food and service here are exceptional. The ambiance of the restaurant is great and they have a very nice wine selection. The steaks are top quality and the chef sure knows how to prepare a juicy flavor full steak. I have also... More

I've heard about this place for quite sometime and wanted to try it out so I suggested it to my office colleagues for my farewell dinner. The service, bread and drinks were very good but the main course not. I ordered the rib steak or otherwise know as entrecote which was not done properly and the meat lack in flavor.... More

My car was stolen from their very own parking lot in front of the restaurant while a security guard was on duty.After 10 months of conversations the manager has blatantly refused any compensation whatsoever for our losses, (the police did recover our car but many things were stolen and we spent several thousands in repairs). Amazingly there weren't any security... More

After trying steak dishes at many different restaurants in the San Jose area, I have found the closest steak place to the one that I miss the most about Cincinnati, OH... (Jeffy Ruby's 'The Precinct'). Doris Metropolitan is a wonderful restaurant with a great, simple atmosphere that contrasts nicely with the busy environment immediately outside it's driveway in Santa Ana,... More

On my first visit the steaks were just ordinary,now, they are as good as New York. The porterhouse is enough for 3 and eaxh piece better then the last. The garlic... More
